Current Research
  • NORDIC has concluded a study on Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Treatment Trial (IIHTT). IIH, also called pseudotumor cerebri, is a disorder of elevated intracranial pressure of unknown case. Its incidence is 22.5 new cases each year per 100,000 overweight women of childbearing age; its incidence is rising in parallel with the obesity epidemic. It affects about 100,000 Americans. Recruitment has concluded for this study. Learn More
  • The Pediatric Optic Neuritis Prospective Outcomes Study, a joint collaboration between NORDIC and the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG), is now open to interested sites. This observational data collection study is funded by the National Eye Institute and will determine our investigators' ability to enroll children with optic neuritis into a research protocol, and help us develop estimates of visual acuity outcomes in these children. Treatment is at the discretion of the investigator. A small research payment is made to sites for each enrollment and follow up exam completed. If you are interested in participating, please email PEDIG@JAEB.ORG for further details. LEARN MORE
