Who can participate?
Children 5 to 10 years old who have cerebral palsy may be eligible to participate. We will also recruit a group of healthy children 5 to 10 years old to participate.
What will happen in the study?
This study includes one study visit to Cincinnati Children’s that will take about 90 minutes.
Your child will:
- Have his or her height, weight, and tibia (leg bone) length measured
- Have imaging to look at bone health
- Have a blood draw
- Have a physical exam completed by the study doctor
A parent will also complete some surveys about medical history, diet, and physical activities.
You will be given a consent form that thoroughly explains all of the details of the study. A member of the study staff will review the consent form with you and will be sure that all of your questions are answered.
Will you/your child be paid to be in this research study?
Participants will receive $50 for full participation.
