Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||1 Day - 6 Months|
Inclusion Criteria:1. 0-6 months of age at the time of enrollment (subject must be <7 months of chronological age at time of randomization and treatment initiation). Corrected age must be at least 39 weeks (calculated by subtracting the number of weeks born before 40 weeks gestation from the chronological age). 2. Has a confirmed diagnosis of TSC based on established clinical or genetic criteria.
Exclusion Criteria:1. Prior history of seizures (clinical or electrographic) at the time of enrollment or identified on baseline EEG. 2. Has been treated in the past or is currently being treated at the time of enrollment with conventional anticonvulsant medications (AEDs), systemic (oral) mTOR inhibitors (such as rapamycin, sirolimus, or everolimus), ketogenic-related special diet, or another anti-seizure therapeutic agent, device, or procedure. 3. Has taken any other investigational drug as part of another research study, within 30 days prior to the baseline screening visit. 4. Has a significant illness or active infection at the time of the baseline screening visit. 5. Has a history of significant prematurity, defined as gestational age <30 weeks at the time of delivery, or other significant medical complications at birth or during the neonatal period that other than TSC would convey additional risk of seizures or neurodevelopmental delay (i.e. HIE, severe neonatal infection, major surgery, prolonged ventilatory or other life-saving supportive care or procedures). 6. Abnormal laboratory values at baseline (i.e., renal function, liver function, or bone marrow production) that are in the opinion of the investigator clinically significant and may jeopardize the safety of the study subject. 7. Prior, planned or anticipated neurosurgery within 3 months of the baseline visit. 8. Has a TSC-associated condition for which mTOR treatment is clinically indicated (i.e. SEGA or AML). 9. Subjects who are, in the opinion of the investigator, unable to comply with the requirements of the study.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

|Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, Epilepsy|
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is caused by genetic mutation in TSC1 or TSC2, resulting in dysregulation of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway. Age at time of seizure onset in TSC infants has been linked to long-term neurodevelopmental outcome in this high-risk population. Sirolimus is an mTOR inhibitor used to treat many of the symptoms of TSC, including epilepsy. This will be the first study to truly evaluate a targeted, disease-modifying drug therapy for preventing or delaying seizure onset in TSC using a rational, mechanism-based therapeutic approach.
