ADHD, scoliosis clinical trials under way
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Participants are being sought for two clinical trials at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
Volunteers are needed for a study to help determine how the brain may connect with the spinal cord to cause Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), a form of scoliosis that is diagnosed at about the beginning of puberty and before maturity. Findings may lead to improved testing and better non-invasive treatments for persons with AIS. The study is being conducted at the Institute for Human Performance, 505 Irving Ave., Syracuse. Volunteers must be aged 8 to 60 years with or without scoliosis. For more information on how to volunteer for this study, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 315-464-9943.
School children between the ages of 6 and 11 are being sought for a study whose findings may lead to a more effective way of diagnosing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Children may be referred to the study by a parent, legal guardian or school personnel, upon consent from the child’s parent or legal guardian. Children do not need to have an ADHD diagnosis or any psychiatric diagnosis to participate in the trial. Children who have mental retardation or autism are excluded from participating in the study. The study is being conducted at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Studies, 713 Harrison St., Syracuse. For more information on how to participate in the study, call 315-464-3188.
