Efficacy Study of Vayarin in Children With Autism and Comorbid Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

There has been growing interest in the role of supplements such as omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) in ADHD and ASD. Two of the primary n-3 PUFAs are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are critical to brain development and are usually obtained through our diets. Increasing ...

The Efficacy of Robot-enhanced Therapy for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is characterized by a pattern of persistent deficits in communication and abnormal behaviors (i.e., repetitive and restrictive). Previous research has shown promising results for the use of social robots to develop social skills in ASD children. However, most of the research is based on case studies ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Rett Syndrome With Triheptanoin

The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of triheptanoin in participants with Rett syndrome using laboratory values, electrocardiogram, rate of adverse events (AE), and physical exam. This study also seeks to evaluate the efficacy of UX007 (triheptanoin) in improving overall seizure frequency, dystonia severity, and ...

Predicting Treatment Response to Memantine in Autism Using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Background and Rationale Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a behaviorally defined complex neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by early childhood onset of marked deficiencies in social and communication skills and presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. Its phenotypic heterogeneity makes studying ASD and its treatment a challenging task. Currently, only two FDA approved ...

Microbiota Transfer Therapy for Adults With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Who Have Gastrointestinal Disorders

For adults ages 18-60 years with ASD and gastrointestinal problems, the investigators propose a Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MTT. The study will also determine if longer treatment is beneficial, and to conduct a longer observation after treatment stops to determine long-term safety and ...

Training Early Social Language in Autism

The mirror neuron system (MNS) broadly refers to a network of brain regions that responds both when a person performs an action and when that person observes someone else performing the same action. This system emerges in infancy and develops over time to support more complex social abilities. It has ...

Phase N/A

Combination Treatment for Augmenting Language in Children With ASD

Following screening for eligibility and baseline, study visits will be scheduled three times per week, with 2 sessions on-site at UCLA and one at home for parent training (allowing flexibility, as needed); study physician visits will occur once weekly for 6 weeks, then biweekly. Screening procedures may be completed in ...

Road to Discovery for Combination Probiotic BB-12 With LGG in Treating Autism Spectrum Disorder

This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination probiotic BB-12 with LGG in healthy children with autism spectrum disorder aged 4-15 years. Subjects will be randomized to BB-12 with LGG orally (LGG dose: 10^9 c.f.u.'s; BB-12: 10^9) for a total of 56 doses or placebo (maltodextrin) at 2:1 ...

Effectiveness of a Developmental Reciprocity Treatment Program in Autism

This is a research study examining the effectiveness of a Developmental Reciprocity Treatment Program (DRT-P) in treating social deficits in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Developmental Reciprocity Treatment is an early intervention that applies developmentally-informed teaching methods in naturalistic settings in order to target social and communication deficits. Researchers ...

Phase N/A

Emotion Awareness and Skills Enhancement Program

The current study is to test a new intervention called Emotional Awareness and Skills Enhancement (EASE). This program was designed to address ASD-specific obstacles to effective emotion regulation, such as reduced awareness concerning others' intentions, a limited repertoire of behavioral responses, and inadequate language for understanding emotional experiences. This new ...
