Research and Education

 

Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D. view profile

We are currently enrolling patients in the following pediatric stroke research studies:

Lori Jordan, M.D.

MRI-based Assessment of Brain Oxygenation in Children and Adults with Sickle Cell Anemia and other forms of Anemia

Principal Investigator: Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D.

Utilizing novel MRI methods to assess cerebral hemodynamics (blood flow and oxygen utilization) to identify children and adults with sickle cell anemia at highest risk of stroke and infarct recurrence. Comparisons are made to healthy children and adults as well as to children and adults with other forms of anemia.

Cognitive Remediation in Children with Congenital Heart Disease

Principal Investigator: Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D.

Pilot study randomizing children with severe congenital heart disease to intensive cognitive remediation 5 days per week for 5 weeks vs. standard care to see if this regimen improves working memory or processing speed.

Vascular Effects of Infection in Pediatric Stroke II (VIPS II)

Principal Investigator: Heather Fullerton, M.D., M.A.S. (Site Principal Investigator - Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D.)

This is a 20-center international study to determine the association between stroke, common infections and genetics in children with ischemic stroke. Children from 29 days of age to 17 years of age must be enrolled within 72 hours of stroke.

The Impact of Seizures in Infants and Children with Ischemic Stroke II (SIPS II)

Principle Investigator: Christine Fox, M.D, M.A.S. (Site Principal Investigator: Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D.)

The goal of this multicenter observational study is to assess the frequency, severity and impact of seizures in children and newborns who have suffered an ischemic stroke. Not all children who have a stroke will also have seizures. This study will help understand seizure frequency and the effect of seizures on a child's outcome after a stroke.

International Pediatric Stroke (IPSS) Study

Principle Investigator: Gabrielle deVeber, M.D. (Site Principal Investigator: Lori Jordan, M.D., Ph.D.)

This is an international registry and study of children with ischemic stroke from 2003 forward. All children with ischemic stroke or cerebral venous sinus thrombosis may participate in the registry. The goal is to gather information on the risk factors for stroke and outcomes after stroke in children to guide future studies to improve care.

If you have questions or are interested in being involved in one of these studies, please contact Chelsea Lee, BS or Niral Patel, MPH in Dr. Lori Jordan’s research program at (615) 343-2011.
