Clinical Trials

Trial Readiness in CLN3 Disease

Lead Researcher: Erika U Augustine

We are inviting children and young adults with no known neurological disease to participate in a research study that involves brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans over three years. The purpose of this study is to prepare for future clinical trials focused on a rare disease called CLN3 disease. CLN3 disease is a neurodegenerative disease affecting children and young adults. As part of this study, we are examining the ways in which CLN3 disease affects the brain. To understand this impact, we will use MRI scans to compare the brains of healthy people to brains of people with CLN3 disease. Following the initial study visit, visits will take place at 6, 12, 18, 24, and 36 months. Compensation will be provided following each completed study visit.
