Brain Diseases clinical trials at UC Davis

2 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Topiramate in Neonates Receiving Whole Body Cooling for Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy

    open to all eligible people

    The goal is to see whether topiramate (an anti-epileptic agent) improves the outcome of babies with neonatal hypoxic encephalopathy who are receiving whole body cooling.

  • High-dose Erythropoietin for Asphyxia and Encephalopathy

    “Study looking at High-dose Erythropoietin with standard care or placebo with standard of care has better outcomes for infants with HIE”

    open to all eligible people

    Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) occurs when a baby gets reduced blood flow and oxygen to the brain near the time of birth. This results in death or neurologic disabilities including cerebral palsy and cognitive impairment in up to half of affected infants. This clinical trial will determine if the drug erythropoietin (Epo) added to hypothermia (usual therapy) will improve outcomes for infants suffering from HIE.
