Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This study undertakes comprehensive surveillance of children, aged between 8 to 12 years (born in the birth years 2006-2009) with Cerebral Palsy.These children were either examined from 2 to 5 years as part of two previous overlapping, longitudinal studies (NHMRC 465128; NHMRC 569605, ACTRN 1261200169820) or are registered with the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (QPRS) . The participants may be observed at any time during the four year period, depending on their availability. Due to the nature of the study, which includes a 3Tmagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scan and a number of clinical assessments, the children will ideally be seen once over 1.5 days.

Not applicable
Comparator / control treatment
Children invited to participate in Predict-CP have either taken part in two previous overlapping, prospective, longitudinal Cerebral Palsy cohort studies (ACTRN 1261200169820, NHMRC 465128; NHMRC 569605), between 1.5 to 5 years of age, or are registered with the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (QPRCS). This data was collected between January 2006 and December 2014 by our research group at the University of Queensland.

We will now be re-evaluating relationships between brain structure at 3T, health care utilisation, functional- and social-outcomes of the same participant cohort at 8-12 years.

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
All children diagnosed with CP, born between 1st January 2006 and 31st December, 2009 in Queensland that have either participated in the CPChild study (ACTRN 1261200169820), a prospective longitudinal cohort study between the ages of 1.5 to 5 years, or who are registered with the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation service (QPRS) will now be invited to return at 8-12 years. For inclusion criteria Cerebral Palsy is defined as a permanent (but not unchanging) disorder of movement and posture that results from an insult to the developing central nervous system. The characteristic signs are spasticity, movement disorders, muscle weakness, ataxia and rigidity.

Statistical methods / analysis
A comprehensive database has been established for all data collection, including clinical measures, MRI scoring and questionnaires so that it is entered prospectively at the time of each assessment. Summary reports are automatically generated from the database to report back to families and treating clinicians after each visit. Our biostatistician will supervise the statistical methods proposed in this study, including analysis of binary outcomes in longitudinal studies using weighted estimating equations (e.g. presence of co morbidities); multilevel mixed-effects models of longitudinal binary outcomes (e.g. GMFCS levels), and generalised estimating equations for ordinal data.

Summary
Brief summary
The Predict-CP cohort provides further follow-up at 8-12 years of two overlapping preschool-age cohorts examined from 2-5 years (NHMRC465128 motor and brain development; NHMRC569605 growth, nutrition and physical activity).
This population based cohort study undertakes state-wide surveillance of 245 children with CP born in Queensland (birth years 2006-2009). Children will be classified for Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS); Manual Ability Classification System (MACS), Communication (CSFS) and OPD (EDACS). Outcomes include gross motor function, musculoskeletal development (hip displacement, spasticity, muscle contracture), upper limb function, communication difficulties, participation, parent and child reported quality of life and medical and allied health resource use. These detailed phenotypical data will be compared to brain macro and micro structure using 3T MRI. Relationships between brain lesion severity and outcomes will be analysed using multilevel mixed-effects models.
