Folinic Acid in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

The aim of this study is to realise a pilot study in France in order to evaluate the efficiency of folinic acid in treatment of autism spectrum disorder and get first estimations about prevalence of auto antibodies anti-FR in France. The study is a randomized controlled trial monocentric,evaluating folinic acid ...

INtranasal OXyTocin for the Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders

There is substantial evidence from animal model and healthy control data, that oxytocin is involved in the modulation of social cognition. In addition, recent genetics and plasma level studies suggest a possible role for oxytocin in the pathophysiology of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). As a large number of children with ...

Phase

Nicotinic Cholinergic Modulation as a Novel Treatment Strategy for Aggression Associated With Autism

Some individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) also demonstrate irritability or aggression, which can interfere with functioning. The purpose of this pilot study is to test whether transdermal nicotine is effective for irritability and/or aggression in adults with ASD using a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Subjects will participate in three ...

EEG Studies of Sensory Processing in Autistic Children

Specific Aims: Aim 1: To recruit 75 children with autism and 75 age- and sex-matched controls ages 6 to 8 years old for an electrophysiological study and to characterize the subjects using appropriate instruments for autism diagnosis, language functioning and behavior/sensory profile, and to measure head circumferences Aim 2: To ...

Clinical and Genetic Study of Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism is a pervasive neurodevelopmental disorder with prominent reciprocal social and communication impairment and restricted repetitive behavior or interest. Based on the number of symptoms and functional impairment, autistic disorder, Asperger disorder, and atypical autism (or PDDNOS) are conceptualized as the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Most recent survey estimated the ...

Phase N/A

Functional Behavioural Skill Training for Young Children With Severe Autism

LAY SUMMARY: IBI is costly and there are currently long waitlists of children who are in need of treatment. The investigators have clinical and ethical obligations to determine more appropriate alternatives to IBI for children making few gains because all children with autism deserve treatment based on their needs. This ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the French Version of Screening Questionnaires for Autism and Asperger Syndrome: AQ EQ and SQ

4 groups of participants will be screened with the questionnaires: Group 1: 50 adolescents with AS or high functioning autism (HFS) diagnosed by psychiatrists using established criteria and with an IQ >85. Group 2: 50 adolescents with AS or classical autism diagnosed by psychiatrists using established criteria 70

Phase N/A

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Brain Development in Autism

The purpose of this study is to investigate brain development in autism by longitudinally assessing children with autism, as well as typically developing controls, using advanced MR techniques. We will use longitudinal diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures to investigate the protracted development of long-range white matter fibers in autism. In ...

Phase N/A

Valproate Response in Aggressive Autistic Adolescents

Autism is a complex biological disorder that generally lasts throughout a person’s life. It starts before age three and causes delays or problems with many different ways in which a person develops or grows. Some people with autism become very aggressive and can hurt others or themselves. This study will ...

Phase

Independent Studies of Dextromethorphan and of Donepezil Hydrochloride for Rett Syndrome

RTT is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by apparently normal early development followed by loss of purposeful hand use, distinctive hand stereotypies, slowed brain growth, loss of language, respiratory irregularities, GI disturbances, gait abnormalities, seizures, and mental retardation. These symptoms appear between ages 6 and 18 months (stage 2 of the ...
