Found (25) clinical trials

We are conducting a treatment study to examine the use of Comprehensive Behavior Intervention for Tics (CBIT). CBIT is the current gold standard first-line behavioral treatment for children and adolescents with tic disorders.  The treatment includes three main components: (1) it helps patients become more aware of their tics, (2) ...

Phase N/A

Dr. Kevin Black is conducting a study that looks at children between the ages of 5 and 10 who are experiencing a recent onset of tics. Tics are repetitive, involuntary sounds or movements like eye blinking, sniffing, abdominal tensing or making small noises. The purpose of this research is to ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Subjects are asked to participate in a research study to evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of an investigational study drug for the treatment of Tourette Syndrome.  This research study is being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center.

Phase N/A

Thalamic Deep Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Refractory Tourette Syndrome

This research is being performed to try to understand if the use of deep brain stimulation or DBS can treat the symptoms of Tourette syndrome that do not respond well to current medications. In order to do this the investigators will place small stimulation leads on both sides of the ...

Phase N/A

Trial to Demonstrate the Efficacy and Safety of Internet-delivered Behavioral Treatment for Adults With Tic Disorders

Gilles da la Tourette syndrome (TS)* is a common chronic neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by motor and vocal tics. In most adult patients, quality of life is significantly impaired. TS, therefore, is a cost-intensive disease (in Germany: mean total costs=3404/year). Despite significant adverse effects, dopamine receptor antagonists were recommended as first ...

Phase N/A

The Effect and Safety of Plum-blossom Needle for Tourette Syndrome

This is a randomized, controlled trial with two parallel arms. A total of 60 patients will be randomly allocated into the plum-blossom needle group (n=30) and the habit reversal training (HRT) group (n=30). 12-week treatment will be given to all patients of each group, follow-up will be made at the ...

Phase N/A

Impulsivity in Tourette Syndrome : Behavioral and Neuroimaging Study

Tourette syndrome (TS) is characterized by the presence of multiple vocal and motor tics. Behavioral disorders associated with TS are common, particularly impulsivity, anti-sociality and socially inappropriate behavior. Specifically, cognitive impulsivity could be the source of these troubles. Its anatomical substrates is based on connections between frontal and striatal areas. ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of a Therapeutic Combination of Dronabinol and PEA for Tourette Syndrome

The investigators propose a 12-week, investigator-initiated, open-label trial of a therapeutic combination of Dronabinol and PEA in 18 adults with Tourette syndrome. Participants will receive Dronabinol and PEA in combination for the duration of the trial. The goal for this pilot study is to (1) provide initial safety, feasibility and ...


Parent Behavioral Training for Disruptive Behaviors in Tourette Syndrome

Disruptive behaviors occur in 80% of children with Tourette Syndrome, and can be more disabling than the tics themselves. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of a parent training program to control disruptive behaviors in children with Tourette Syndrome. In addition, social cognition will be examined ...

Phase N/A

Brain-Behavior Interactions in Tic Suppression

Objectives: This study will recruit youth with chronic tics. Chronic tics are the most common movement disorder in children. The goal of the study is to learn how the brain and environment influence children's ability to suppress tics. Specifically, we want to learn how tics are influenced by a certain ...
