Research Projects

  1. Potential Benefit of Add-on Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Pediatric Drug-Resistant Epilepsy: A Case Series


    Based on our experiences and reports in the literature, we propose that, in patients who fail management with an initial trial of high-dose CBD-focused therapy, there may be a role for add-on THC-focused formulations.

  2. Characterization of physical literacy in children with chronic medical conditions compared with healthy controls: a cross-sectional study


    Physical competence (motor skill, fitness) interventions, rather than motivation or education, are needed for these youth.

  3. Tuberous sclerosis complex associated intracranial lesion found by antenatal ultrasound


    Though there are no reports of sensitivity of neurosonography for the antenatal detection of intracranial abnormalities associated with TSC, our case suggests that antenatal ultrasound could be used as a screening modality for antenatal diagnosis of TSC.
