To determine whether armodafinil is more effective than placebo in reducing fatigue.
Aims will be analyzed separately as stratified by treatment arm (chemotherapy treatment arm vs. post-treatment remission arm).
- To determine whether armodafinil is more effective than placebo in reducing fatigue as measured by the change in scores from the FACT-Fatigue reported at study entry, week 7 of study treatment, and study completion (week 13).
- To determine whether armodafinil is more effective than placebo in reducing fatigue as measured by standard actigraphy summary statistics including total sleep time (TST), wake after sleep onset (WASO), sleep latency, number of awakenings, daytime sleep time, mean daytime activity, peak activity, acrophase, and circadian mesor at week 1 of screening, week 7 of study treatment, and study completion (week 13).
- To determine whether armodafinil is more effective than placebo in improving work quality as measured by the change in scores from the WLQ© reported at study entry (week 1) and study completion (week 13).
- To determine whether armodafinil is more effective than placebo in reducing fatigue as measured by the change in activity patterns with actigraphy using applied functional data analysis during week 1 of screening, week 7 of study treatment, and study completion (week 13).
- To evaluate whether measured cytokines (IL-2, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α, and TGF-α) are elevated at baseline.
- To evaluate whether measured cytokines (IL-2, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α, and TGF-α) change from the time of study entry to study completion.
- To assess whether cytokine levels (IL-2, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α, and TGF-α) correlate with circadian patterns in wrist actigraphy and self-described reports of fatigue as measured by the FACT-Fatigue at baseline and study completion.

The purpose of this research study is to determine if armodafinil is safe and effective in treating fatigue in patients with malignant gliomas undergoing treatment with radiotherapy plus t...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate if adjunctive armodafinil treatment can improve the cognitive deficits in patients with schizophrenia
The primary objective of the study is to determine whether armodafinil treatment, at dosages of 150 and 200 mg/day, is more effective than placebo treatment as adjunctive therapy to mood s...
The placebo effect is usually studied in clinical settings for decreasing negative symptoms such as pain, depression and anxiety. There is interest in exploring the placebo effect also outside the cli...
To compare symptom trajectories between placebo and active drug responders and to examine whether early placebo improvement would be associated with subsequent placebo response in the treatment of pat...
Although placebo analgesia is a well-recognized phenomenon with important clinical implications, the possibility that placebo effects occur during sleep has received little attention. This experimenta...
Recent evidence indicates that placebo effects can occur even when patients know that they are taking a placebo, termed the open-label placebo effect.
Use of protective angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-I) in patients with cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is sometimes limited by incident coughing. In clinical trials cough occurred also on p...
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.
A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
Cytokine Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF)
TNF is a compound that is classified as a cytokine which plays a central role in the cellular mechanisms of apoptosis or cell death. However, there are a number of different kinds of TNF, just under twenty, but the family of molecules have very similar a...
Cytokines include chemokines, lymphokines, and monokines. Cells of the immune system communicate with one another by releasing and responding to chemical messengers called cytokines. These proteins are secreted by immune cells and act on other cells to...
