Cannabis Schizophrenia and Reward: Self-Medication and Agonist Treatment?

Substance use disorders are strikingly common in patients with schizophrenia and contribute to its morbidity and cost to society. We have proposed a neurobiological formulation suggesting that cannabis and other substance use in these patients may ameliorate a dysfunction in the brain reward circuit(thus serving a "self-medication" function), while also ...

A Clinical Trial of Intravenous Ganaxolone in Women With Postpartum Depression

This study will evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Efficacy of IV Administration of Ganaxolone in Women with Postpartum Depression

Phase

Imaging GABAergic/Glutamatergic Drugs in Bipolar Alcoholics Alcoholics

Bipolar disorder (BD) is the Axis I psychiatric condition most strongly associated with substance use disorder (SUD); diagnostic co-occurrence is particularly high between BD and alcohol use disorder (AUD). Individuals with co-occurring SUD and BD (SUD+BD) have substantially worse clinical outcomes than those with either BD or SUD alone. Nonetheless, ...

Texting for Relapse Prevention

Schizophrenia is among the 20 most debilitating illnesses worldwide, responsible for 1% of the global burden of disease. Schizoaffective disorder (SAD) affects an additional 0.2% to 1.1% of adults. As many as four out of five people who have schizophrenia or SAD relapse within 5 years of recovery from their ...

Lifestyle Intervention for Young Adults With Serious Mental Illness

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a group-based lifestyle intervention (PeerFIT) supported by mobile health (mHealth) technology and social media to promote weight loss and improved fitness in young adults with serious mental illness (SMI). The study is a two-arm randomized controlled trial conducted in ...

A Pilot Study Investigating the Efficacy of Minocycline and N-Acetyl Cysteine for Bipolar Depression

The investigators are doing this research study to find out if minocycline alone, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) alone, or the combination of minocycline and NAC can help people with bipolar depression when added to lithium. The investigators also want to find out if minocycline, NAC, and the combination of minocycline and ...

A Study of Abilify Tablet(Aripiprazole) as an Adjunctive Treatment in the Bipolar Depression

This is an 8-week, multicenter, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of aripiprazole as an adjunctive treatment with mood stabilizer for the treatment of patients (outpatients or inpatients) with type I or II bipolar disorder accompanied by major depressive episode, without any psychotropic features. ...

Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators for Women of Child-bearing Age With Schizophrenia

Estrogen is hypothesised to be protective for women against early onset of severe symptoms of schizophrenia (Hafner, 1991; Seeman, 1992). This 'estrogen hypothesis' was derived from epidemiological, clinical and animal studies. Following the results of such studies, the investigators conducted a study (Kulkarni et al 1996) in which a group ...

Phase

Prefrontal Cortical Engagement Through Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation in Schizophrenia

Cognitive deficits are a strong predictor of functional outcome in schizophrenia, yet poorly remediated by current treatments. Disturbances in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) function underlie core impairments such as in cognitive control and thus represent a critical target for novel therapeutics. Initial studies indicate transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) may be ...

Phase N/A

The Gut Microbiota of Bipolar and Depression

Background: MDD (Major Depressive disorder) and BD (Bipolar disorder), whose specific pathogenesis is still unclear, are both a multi-factorial disease being caused by biological, psychological and social factors. Accumulating evidence suggests that gut microbiota play an important role in brain functions and in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric diseases, such as ...
