A Response Modulation Hypothesis of Socioemotional Processing Associated With Alcohol Use Disorder

Objective The purpose of this protocol is to understand the mechanism whereby neural processes of socioemotional cognition associated with alcohol use disorders lead to negative drinking consequences. This study is a two-stage procedure to both provide evidence of a response modulation deficit associated with socioemotioal processing in individuals with alcohol ...

Phase N/A

Lanifibranor in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes & Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

The study is a two-arm (placebo, lanifibranor 800 mg/day), randomized (1:1), double-blind, placebo-controlled, 24-week treatment study. Sixty four patients with T2DM will be randomized, allowing for a 10% drop-out rate. The diagnosis of NAFLD on imaging will be done by measuring IHTG using the gold-standard magnetic resonance and spectroscopy (H-MRS) ...


Observational Study to Evaluate Levomethadone Safety and Effectiveness in Subjects Under Opioid Maintenance Treatment

Multicentre, prospective, observational, non-interventional, open- ended trial, collecting data from male and female patients aged 18 years, with a diagnosis of opioid addiction according to ICD-10 (F11.2), treated with therapeutic doses of levomethadone according to the routine medical practice. The study is divided in two different consecutive parts: Part 1 ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Cortical Dopamine Regulation on Drinking Craving and Cognitive Control

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor tolcapone, relative to placebo, reduces alcohol drinking and alcohol cue-elicited brain activation and increases brain activation associated with cognitive control as a function of a participant's genotype at a polymorphism in the COMT gene.


Study of Structural Imaging

Objective The purpose of this protocol is to characterize cerebellar volumes and function in alcoholics and recovery of cerebellar volume and function during early abstinence. This study also investigates how cerebrocerebellar circuits contribute to cognitive and motor impairment in alcoholism. Study Population Healthy volunteers and Inpatient participants with alcohol use ...

Phase N/A

Vitamin E Pharmacokinetics and Biomarkers in Normal and Obese Women

Vitamin E (a-tocopherol) is essential for humans but determining human dietary requirements has proved difficult. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin E is not met by 96% of American women, without apparent harm. Because vitamin E is an antioxidant, optimum consumption of vitamin E may improve the health of ...


Alcohol & Metabolic Comorbidities in PLWHA: Evidence Driven Interventions

Adult male and female in care PLWHA with fasting plasma glucose (FPG) >94 mg/dL and <125 mg/dL will be recruited. Measures of FPG and HbA1c obtained from overnight fasted subjects. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) will be assessed by AUDIT and time-line follow back questionnaires, coupled with Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) measures. Glucose ...

Phase N/A

Non-Opiate Treatment After Prenatal Opiate Exposure to Prevent Postnatal Injury to the Young Brain

In this current proposal, the research plan is based on our pilot study, which randomized infants with NAS to receive morphine or clonidine. The treatment groups were similar as to mean birth weight, gestational age, Apgar scores, and postnatal age at treatment. Infants enrolled had no other medical or surgical ...


Brain Inflammation and Function in Alcoholism

The abuse of high doses of alcohol is associated with cognitive impairment that in extreme cases can result in dementia. However, the mechanisms underlying the neurotoxic effects of alcohol to the human brain are poorly understood. Here we test the hypothesis that alcohol-induced neuroinflammation contributes to its neurotoxic effects in ...

Phase N/A

Electroretinogram: a New Human Biomarker for Smoking Cessation Treatment

This project aims to develop electroretinogram as a new putative marker for dopamine release, and as a predictor of treatment response among patients seeking treatment for smoking cessation. Tobacco smoking continues to be a major public health challenge. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter released in the brain. Several lines of evidence ...
