Phase N/A

Renal Agenesis Fetal Therapy

In fetal life, urine production by the kidneys is responsible for sustaining amniotic fluid in the uterus. This fluid is critical for fetal lung development during gestation. Complete lack of amniotic fluid, known as anhydramnios, leads to lethal pulmonary hypoplasia in 100% of patients. A common cause of complete anhydramnios ...

Open-Label Study of the Long Term Tolerability and Safety of Atomoxetine in Children With FASD and ADD/ADHD

Abnormalities of attention, function, and activity level in children exposed to alcohol in utero share similarities and differences to children who do not have alcohol exposure. Previous psychological studies have examined either core attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) symptoms of hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity or hypothesized neuropsychological differences in children with ...
