Treatment of Disruptive Behaviors in Fragile X Syndrome

Disruptive behaviors such as self-injury, aggression, and property destruction pose significant health-related issues to children diagnosed with fragile X syndrome (FXS), impacting the child's quality of life and causing significant distress to families. Access to appropriate treatment for families is severely limited by factors such as cost of care, shortages ...

Phase N/A

tDCS on Working Memory (WM) in Adults With ASD

Many studies have examined working memory in people with autism spectrum disorder as working memory deficits in individuals with autism spectrum disorder leads to multiple difficulties associated with behaviour regulation, cognitive flexibility, abstract thinking, and focusing and sustaining attention. Evidence suggests that transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on the left dorsolateral ...

Phase N/A

A Trial of TTA-121 on Autism Spectrum Disorder

To test efficacy and safety of a novel nasal spray of oxytocin on social deifies in autism spectrum disorder, and To compare effect sizes of different doses

Phase

Effects of Social Gaze Training on Brain and Behavior in Fragile X Syndrome

The purpose of the study is to evaluate a 2-3 day treatment probe targeted to improving social gaze behavior in children with fragile X syndrome (FXS). The investigators will use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to shape appropriate social skills. Importantly, the investigators propose to examine the effects ...

Phase

A 12-weeks Study to Evaluate Sulforaphane in Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder

In this proposed study, the investigators will evaluate the the efficacy, safety and related mechanism of sulforaphane in treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The study will recruit 120 ASD patients, then these patients will be randomized to sulforaphane group or placebo group (60 patients per arm) for 12 weeks ...

Phase N/A

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Intranasal Oxytocin as an Adjunct to Behavioral Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder

This 3-year study is a trial of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), with or without oxytocin (OT) augmentation, in young adults with autism spectrum disorders. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either a social skills-focused CBT intervention or a stress management/relaxation training CBT intervention. Participants will also be randomized to ...

Phase

Glutaminergic Transmission in Autism : Molecular Imaging Exploration

Glutamatergic transmission exploration using PET (Positron Emission Tomography) imaging in autism compared to Fragile-X Syndrome ( FXS) and Healthy Volunteers

Phase

MEG Study of STX209

Recent evidence from magnetoencephalographic (MEG) studies in ASD have pointed to abnormalities (specifically, delays) in auditory evoked neuromagnetic responses (e.g. M100 - see Roberts et al., 2010, and mismatch field, MMF - see Roberts et al., 2011) as well as abnormalities in the oscillatory behavior of auditory cortex, especially in ...

Phase N/A

Neurotherapy to Promote Emotion Recognition in Autism

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are known to have difficulty in the recognition of facial emotion. Such deficits in facial emotion recognition (FER) are thought to cause or exacerbate social disability in ASD by preventing 1) accurate detection of social/emotional information conveyed through the face and, subsequently 2) the ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Brain Inflammation in Autism

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are highly disabling, persistent neurodevelopmental disorders. There are no available treatments for core symptoms of ASD or biologically-based clinical biomarkers. Emerging evidence indicates that levels of brain inflammation are increased in ASD. In particular, recent work implicates hyperactivity of microglial cells, the resident immune cells of ...
