2014-08-26 22:13:53 | BioPortfolio


To demonstrate concordance between the Quotient ADHD System Report and standard DSM-IV based parent and teacher reported rating/assessment scales, currently the accepted method of symptom measurement for subjects diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).


Public school based study for children ages 8 through 14 years of age.

Children previously identified and currently receiving an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 accommodations in the classroom setting for symptoms of ADHD.

Open enrollment of 30 subjects, both male and female.

One study visit in which subjects will perform/receive the following assessments/evaluations:

1. Quotient ADHD System Test

2. Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Teacher Rating Scale

3. Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Parent Rating Scale

The primary analytical goal is to examine the extent of agreement of the Quotient ADHD System(either individual measures or in combination) with standard measures (Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Teacher Rating Scale and Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Parent Rating Scale) and to compare this agreement with that seen between the standard measures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)

The d-form of AMPHETAMINE. It is a central nervous system stimulant and a sympathomimetic. It has also been used in the treatment of narcolepsy and of attention deficit disorders and hyperactivity in children. Dextroamphetamine has multiple mechanisms of action including blocking uptake of adrenergics and dopamine, stimulating release of monamines, and inhibiting monoamine oxidase. It is also a drug of abuse and a psychotomimetic.

A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.

The prototypical tricyclic antidepressant. It has been used in major depression, dysthymia, bipolar depression, attention-deficit disorders, agoraphobia, and panic disorders. It has less sedative effect than some other members of this therapeutic group.
