PREDnisolone in NephrOtic Syndrome (PREDNOS)

Description
PREDNOS is a national multicentre randomised double blind trial of long-term tapering versus standard prednisolone (steroid) therapy for the treatment of the initial episode of childhood nephrotic syndrome. The aim of the trial is to compare the extended course tapering prednisolone regiman with the standard 8 week regimena and determine whether the extended course of prednisolone increases the time to first relapse in children presenting steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome.

PREDnisolone in NephrOtic Syndrome (PREDNOS)

Description
PREDNOS 2 is a national multicentre randomised double blind trial of short course daily prednisolone therapy at the time of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) in children with relapsing steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS). The aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a six day course of daily prednisolone therapy at the time of URTI in reducing the development of subsequent nephrotic syndrome relapse in children with relapsing SSNS.

Primary Care and Clinical Research Trials Unit

Description
The Primary Care Clinical Research & Trials Unit (PC-CRTU) has been conducting clinical trials since 1985 and has an excellent track record in designing, implementing, coordinating, monitoring, analysing and publishing trials. It is the largest and longest-running academic primary care facility in Europe for clinical trials in the community.Our central facility expertly coordinates large and small community-based clinical trials. The PC-CRTU has strong links to West Midlands PCTs and Secondary Care Trusts. The PC-CRTU has developed excellent relationships with local networks of Primary Care Cancer, Mental Health, Medicine for Children, Stroke and the CLRN. We have access to more than 3500 GPs, in 985 practices, from 88 PCTs across England and Wales, an estimated patient population of over 5.4 million and approximately 40% of the total population of the West Midlands.

Primary Care Clinical Research & Trials Unit (PC-CRTU)

Description
The University of Birmingham is one of the leading centres in the UK for clinical trials, having a wealth of experience across a wide range of diseases, clinical settings and trial designs. The Birmingham Centre for Clinical Trials (BCCT) brings together clinical trial expertise from across the University and, in particular, the three large, well-established, UKCRC fully-registered Clinical Trials Units. The trials portfolio at the University of Birmingham is supported by a comprehensive expert infrastructure in trial methodology.

Primary Care, Population Health Research and Epidemiology

Description
Research within this theme is determining disease aetiology and health outcomes, including the role of the environment and genes, and using such knowledge to inform the design and evaluation of population-based or clinical interventions to prevent or treat conditions of population health importance.

Projects - Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics

Description
Our projects span from basic work on understanding brain function, through using advanced imaging, robotic devices and virtual reality environments to promote recovery in neurological patients, to applied work on developing intelligent robots.
