Varenicline (Chantix) Treatment for Waterpipe Smoking Cessation

The lack of proven waterpipe smoking cessation interventions makes it important to explore interventions proven effective for cigarette smoking cessation. The investigators hypothesize that Varenicline (Chantix) administrated for 12 weeks is associated with higher sustained quit rate at 12 weeks compared to placebo. The investigators propose to conduct a randomized ...


Structured Discontinuation vs Continued Therapy in Suboptimal and Optimal Responders to High-dose Long-term Opioids for Chronic Pain

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect on pain intensity (PI) of structured discontinuation of long-term opioid analgesic therapy compared to continuation of opioid therapy in Suboptimal and Optimal Responders to high-dose, long-term opioid analgesic therapy for chronic low back pain (CLBP).


Morphine Versus Methadone for Opiate Exposed Infants With Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome

Neonates exposed to opiates in utero can develop a constellation of withdrawal symptoms known as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Infants with NAS are at risk for multiple medical complications including failure to thrive and seizures, they often require prolonged hospital stays and account for significant health care costs. At University ...


Treatment With Quetiapine for Youth With Substance Use Disorders and Severe Mood Dysregulation

The purpose of this study is to determine whether quetiapine is effective in the treatment of youth with co-occurring substance use disorders and bipolar disorder.


Effects of Expectation Medication and Placebo on Objective and Self-rated Performance

Introduction: During the last decade, neuropsychiatric impairments in adults have more often been observed. Requests for neuropsychiatric investigations, especially concerning Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has increased. The core ADHD symptoms in adults include a frequent and persistent pattern of inattention/distractibility and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity (Adler 2004; Adler & Chua 2002; McGough ...


Effects of Intranasal Oxytocin on Cigarette Smoking

Socioemotional processing dysfunctions (i.e., disruptions in affective, cognitive, and neural processes that encode, interpret, and respond to socially and emotionally relevant stimuli) have been implicated in tobacco smoking and relapse, however this potential target for medication development has not been systematically examined. Evidence from animal and human laboratories indicate that ...


Remifentanil for Preventing Propofol Injection Pain in Elderly Patients

Elderly patients show different pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic variables and usually need smaller doses of anesthetic drugs than younger patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate the optimal effect-site concentration of remifentanil for preventing injection pain during propofol induction in elderly patients by the Dixon's up-and-down method.


Nicotine Dependence Withdrawal and Replacement Therapy Assessed by PET Imaging

While smoking prevalence has declined for both men and women over the last two decades, rates among women have shown a much shallower decrease and, in recent years, prevalence of cigarette initiation has been higher for girls than boys. Smoking among women of child-bearing age has significant negative health consequences ...


UW Quitting Using Intensive Treatment Study (QUITS)

Building on our recent NHLBI-funded publication in JAMA (1) that described the modest effectiveness of varenicline pharmacotherapy, this study will use a 2 X 2 factorial design to evaluate two different medication use strategies on their ability to markedly enhance varenicline effectiveness in a large cohort of current smokers. Smokers ...
