Anorexia clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • Adaptive Treatment for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa

    open to eligible people ages 12-18

    The investigators are conducting a randomized controlled trial using an adaptive design for adolescents (ages 12-18) with anorexia nervosa to compare standard Family Based Treatment (FBT) to adaptive FBT with an Intensive Parental Coaching (IPC) component. If participants do not reach expected milestones by session 4 of treatment, participants may be randomized to receive additional IPC or continue treatment as usual with regular FBT.
