Weight, Body clinical trials at UC Health
2 research studies open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 3-18
The purpose is to evaluate the long-term pathologic weight changes associated with multi-year risperidone or aripiprazole therapy in 3 - <18-year-old children, who have varying durations of prior antipsychotic drug exposure from the start of study Month 0 (M0). This is critical because children appear to have greater vulnerability to antipsychotic-associated weight gain than adults, and obesity has significant effects on morbidity and mortality.
