tSMS clinical trials
- Transcranial Static Magnetic Field Stimulation (tSMS) in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04393467.
This study aims to evaluate safety and efficacy of tSMS in ALS patients and to obtain preliminary data about the effects of tSMS on cortical excitability.
To this purpose, 40 ALS patients will be recruited and randomized to real or sham tSMS. After at least 3 months follow-up, they will undergo tSMS, daily for 120 min, at home, for 6 consecutive months.
Clinical status will be tested before, during and after the stimulation period. Moreover, cortical excitability will be tested by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) before and after the stimulation period.
- tSMS in Essential Tremor. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03780426
This is randomized double-blind study to study the hypothesis that transcranial static magnetic field stimulation of the primary motor cortex improves tremor in patients with essential tremor. Half of the patients will receive tSMS of the left hemisphere and the other half of the right hemisphere.
- Prevention of Levodopa-induced Dyskinesias by Transcranial Static Magnetic Field Stimulation (tSMS). ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02657681
This is a randomized sham-controlled double-blind study to test the hypothesis that transcranial static magnetic field stimulation (tSMS) of the motor cortex improves levodopa-induced dyskinesias in patients with Parkinson's disease. Half of the patients will receive real tSMS treatment, the other half will receive sham treatment (placebo).
