An Open-Label Trial of Aripiprazole in Children and Adolescents With Bipolar Disorder
This is an investigator-initiated study whose primary aim is to determine the effectiveness of aripiprazole (Abilify®) in helping persons with symptoms of mania whose current medications do not completely control those symptoms. Aripiprazole is a medication that has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of Schizophrenia.
A secondary aim of this research is to explore whether CYP 2D6 polymorphisms are related to side effects with aripiprazole. The goal of this research is to identify individuals who metabolize aripiprazole more rapidly or slowly, which will potentially help the clinician make dosing adjustments and decrease the risk of adverse events.
The primary aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of aripiprazole for the treatment of children and adolescents with bipolar disorder. The secondary aim of this study is to determine if common polymorphic variations in the CYP 2D6 gene underlie the inter-individual variability in aripiprazole systemic drug exposure and the occurrence of treatment emergent side effects.

An element in the alkali metals family. It has the atomic symbol Li, atomic number 3, and atomic weight 6.94. Salts of lithium are used in treating BIPOLAR DISORDER.
INTERNEURONS of the vertebrate RETINA containing two processes. They receive inputs from the RETINAL PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS and send outputs to the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS. The bipolar cells also make lateral connections in the retina with the RETINAL HORIZONTAL CELLS and with the AMACRINE CELLS.
