Clinical Research

Pediatric Sleep Center Conducts Leading-Edge Clinical Research

In collaboration with Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the Pediatric Sleep Center at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital conducts innovative and ongoing clinical research in sleep disorders that is both improving the lives of children and setting national standards for clinic practice treatments. As a result of our continuing clinical trials, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Pediatric Sleep Center has developed novel techniques and treatments for a broad range of sleep conditions. In addition, our experts continue to seek the safest and most effective sleep treatments possible for children and teenagers.

Clinical Trials Benefit Young Patients

Recent clinical research projects at the Pediatric Sleep Center include:

  • The Childhood Adenotonsillectomy (CHAT) study, a clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to better understand the effects of removing tonsils and adenoids in the treatment of sleep apnea
  • The Sickle Cell Anemia Sleep & Asthma Cohort Study (SAC), examining the relationship between asthma, sleep and lung complications in children with sickle cell anemia

Studies such as these, as well as other ongoing research, ensure that children in our care always receive the latest, most advanced treatments available in sleep therapy.
