Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder clinical trials at UC Health

6 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of PDC-1421 Treatment in Adult Patients With Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    The primary objective of this trial was to determine the effective doses and treatment period of PDC-1421 Capsule in subjects with ADHD. The secondary objective was to evaluate the safety of PDC-1421 Capsule in subjects receiving PDC-1421 at various dose levels.

  • Development of a Mobile App for an Executive Functioning Intervention for Adolescents

    open to eligible people ages 11-15

    This study develops an initial prototype of a mobile tool that will support clinician-directed behavioral/organizational skills treatment for adolescents with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with input guided from key stakeholders.

  • Virtual Reality Attention Management for children with ADHD, attention problems

    ā€œCan training in a virtual reality environment teach children with ADHD to ignore common distractors?ā€

    open to eligible people ages 8-12

    Problems with distraction are widespread in the 21st century, but for people with developmental delays or behavioral challenges they can have more damaging effects. For example, susceptibility to distraction is associated with worse school and social performance, lower high school graduation rates, and increased incidence of serious accidents. The investigators' goal is to improve understanding of distractibility and develop a targeted treatment. The proposed intervention is based on models of habituation, which is a term that means reduced physiological and emotional response to a stimulus (e.g. moving object, or loud noise, etc.) as it is seen repeatedly. The investigators use virtual reality technology to show study participants distracting stimuli repeatedly in a virtual classroom setting, and their hypothesis states that participants will improve attention in the face of distraction by training with this technology intervention. The virtual classroom setting is especially relevant for children who have significant challenges with distractibility, such as children with ADHD. This intervention will likely be effective in helping individuals with other clinical disorders and perhaps the general population as well.

  • Evaluating Treatment of ADHD in Children With Down Syndrome

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Children with Down syndrome (DS) have a 3-5 time greater prevalence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) than typically developing (TD) children. Despite this higher risk of ADHD, rates of stimulant medication treatment are disproportionately low in children with DS+ADHD, even though stimulants are the most efficacious ADHD treatment and are recommended by consensus guidelines for use in children with intellectual disability and ADHD. Therefore, the investigators propose a pilot clinical trial to support the first randomized clinical trial of stimulant medication in children with DS+ADHD. The purpose of this study is to inform sample size estimates for the larger clinical trial. All children enrolled in the study will complete a comprehensive assessment battery evaluating ADHD diagnostic criteria as well as behavioral, cognitive, academic, and functional impairments. Further, children will take part in the pilot methylphenidate clinical trial to inform measures retained and desired sample size for the future clinical trial.

  • Treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Preschool-Age Children (PATS)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This research focuses on the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in very young children. The medication being used is methylphenidate (Ritalin); it is being studied to determine its safety and how well it works to treat ADHD in preschool-age children (3-5.5 year olds).
