Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Children With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A Safety Study

2014-08-27 03:16:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Low frequency repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation(rTMS) is a safe and tolerable procedure in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder(ADHD); it also could be a complement to the treatment of patients with poor symptomatic control to conventional treatment.

Description

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a common disorder in the infancy; the majority of ADHD have good clinical response to amphetamines alone or in association with antiepileptic drugs. It is described that some patients(10-30%) with ADHD do not respond to conventional pharmacological and psycho- pedagogical treatment; in those patients non invasive brain stimulation methods could be a supplementary option for symptomatic control. There are not many published papers describing the effects of rTMS in persons younger than 18 years; so the first step to extent its use in pediatric population should be to obtain evidences about its tolerance and safety.

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)

A propylamine derivative and selective ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITOR that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

A methylphenidate derivative, DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A dextroamphetamine drug precursor that also functions as a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT and DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
