Neurology Research

The University of South Alabama Department of Neurology believes that translating discoveries into therapies is essential to improve the patient life.

We are currently enrolling subjects in clinical trials and basic research projects (discovery programs) to reach this goal. By inquiring on research performed at the USA Department of Neurology, you may benefit from advanced clinical trials and contribute to discovery.

Epilepsy

 

Clinical Trials

STATUS

The STATUS Trial is designed as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SAGE-547 Injection in the treatment of patients with super-refractory status epilepticus (SRSE).

 

Discovery Program

Autonomic testing in Neurological Disorders

Neurological disorders have been associated with multiple symptoms that could be associated with autonomic dysfunction, including nausea, dizziness, asthenia, syncope, seizures, palpitations, abnormal blood pressure, etc. However these patients have not been systematically evaluated for autonomic dysfunction. A Tilt table test is a safe, reliable and standardized ambulatory test that can provide objective information of the autonomic system function. The test involves recording blood pressure and pulse for about 40 minutes both in the supine and upright positions. Identification of autonomic disorders could lead to a potential treatment.

Discovery Program

Social dysfunctions in Parkinsonism

Social functions are processed by complex brain circuitries that can be affected both by disease and treatments. Social dysfunctions can negatively impact the quality of life of patients. In patients with movement disorders, the contribution of both disease and treatments remain unknown on social function. This study is aimed to clarify the change in social function in patients with Parkinson disease while the condition progress.
