Relationship Between D2 Receptors SPECT and the Apomorphine Test in Patients With OH Dependence (ALC-DRD2-APO)

OH dependence is associated with DA receptor changes. Both, the apomorphine test and the D2Rec SPECt are usefull for monitoring DA receptor status. We aimed at studying whether DA receptor hypofunction, assessed by means of the apomorphine test and the D2Rec SPECT, is a marker of relapse in detoxified OH ...

Project RAP: Reaching Adolescents for Prevention

Many studies have shown that a brief motivational interview in the context of a routine or emergency health care visit may assist adults to reduce high-risk drinking and drug-taking. Center researchers are conducting a 1,400-person, randomized clinical trial involving teen patients at the Boston Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department in ...

Psychotherapy Enhancement for Therapeutic Community (TC) Retention - 1

Therapeutic Community (TC) treatment can be effective psychosocial modality for addiction, but premature dropout remains a major problem. Personality disorders are very common in residential programs, and TCs regard personality disturbance as core to all people with addiction. Severe personality dysfunction is associated with higher dropout rates from TCs, and ...

CDP-choline Treatment in ATS Users

This study is a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of cytidine-5'-diphosphate choline (CDP-choline) in amphetamine-type stimulants-using adolescents. Multi-level assessments will be performed to determine whether CDP-choline administration with supportive psychotherapy, compared to placebo administration with supportive psychotherapy, will 1) repair ATS-induced neural cell damage of the target brain regions, 2) ...

Mifepristone Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder

This is an 8-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 3 arm, parallel groups, dose-ranging study of 1-week of treatment with mifepristone (0, 600, 1200 mg/d) given in conjunction with 8 weeks of manual-guided counseling, and a follow-up visit at Week 12.

Can Ondansetron Prevent Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) in Babies Born to Narcotic-dependent Women

All neonates will have a screening 12-lead EKG prior to their first dose of study medication to determine if QTc prolongation is present. A repeat 12-lead EKG will be done after each dose of study medication, approximately 2-5 hours post dose; if a neonate has prolonged QTc the study drug ...

10 Days of Theta Burst Stimulation as a Tool to Treat Cocaine Dependence

Cocaine dependence is a particularly difficult substance use disorder to treat. There is currently a lot of scientific inertia focused on the development of novel, neural circuit based strategies for intervention. A prior NARC funded pilot project in non-treatment seeking cocaine users demonstrated that a single session of medial prefrontal ...

A Novel Compound for Alcoholism Treatment: A Translational Strategy

Objective Ghrelin is a 28-amino acid peptide that stimulates appetite and food intake. It is an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR1a). Preclinical studies suggest that ghrelin modulates alcohol reward processing. Previous work from our research team, indicated that intravenous (IV) ghrelin administration, compared to placebo, results ...
