Research and Clinical Trials

Neuroscience research at Carle represents the intersection of technology, medicine, science, and care. By providing our patients with the opportunity to participate in translational and clinical studies we hope to engage them in not only their own care but also the future of medicine. Our researchers and providers strive to advance diagnostic capabilities, understand causes and effects, and improve patient quality of life. Our research department supports clinicians and faculty alike in their efforts to provide excellent care and perform extraordinary science.

By participating in research studies, Carle Neuroscience Institute seeks to create a better understanding of the structure and function of neurological systems allowing us to advance clinical care possible and ultimately improve the overall promotion of human health and quality of life.

Carle Neuroscience Institute Research is known for demonstrating improved clinical outcomes for patients through research efforts that focus on the development of predictive analysis, novel diagnostics, and comparative efficacy.

A Pivotal Study of the Premia Spine TOPS™ System

The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the Total Posterior Spine System (TOPS System) is more effective than transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) when used to stabilize a single lumbar level (L2 - L5) following surgical decompression in patients diagnosed with (1) at least moderate lumbar spinal stenosis, and (2) Grade 1 spondylolisthesis (or retrolisthesis), and (3) thickening of the ligamentum flavum or scarring of the facet joint capsule.

Ultra-high field imaging of glypmphatic function following traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. In the US alone, there are 2.8 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths each year, and more than 5.3 million Americans are currently living with a TBI-related disability. Approximately 90% of these injuries are considered ‘mild’ TBI, or concussion. Research is needed to better understand the impacts of traumatic brain injury and ultimately develop new treatments. This research study seeks volunteers with no history of brain injury to serve as comparisons to those with TBI. Using non-invasive, ultra-high field (7 Tesla) MRI technology will allow researchers to see features of the brain that will help improve traumatic brain injury treatment.

M6®-C Artificial Cervical Disc Two-Level IDE Pivotal Study

Prospective, concurrently controlled, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Spinal Kinetics M6-C™ artificial cervical disc compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for the treatment of contiguous two-level symptomatic cervical radiculopathy at vertebral levels from C3 to C7 with or without spinal cord compression.
