Pain insensibility is often described in people with autism. The aim of this study is to test the pain perception in adults with autistic spectrum disorder without intellectual disability. An experimental model of pain is used to measure endogenous modulation systems. Thermic stimulations (tonic heat pain stimulation and cold-pressor test) are used to test excitatory and inhibitory pain mechanisms. Salivary cortisol and automatic nervous system (heart rate and blood pressure w...
This research is being done to test the effectiveness of two treatments aimed at increasing language and social skills in children with autism spectrum disorder. If children show improvement in these treatments, we hope that the availability of public services for minority and low income families will be increased. Minority and low income families with children between 22 and 33 months of age with Autism Spectrum Disorders may join.
The main purpose is to study brain plasticity (the changes that occur in the brain through experience) in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Research suggests that during development, the brains of individuals with ASD may change in response to their experiences differently than the brains of typically developing individuals. Investigators want to understand why and how this difference may contribute to the symptoms of ASD.
The purpose of this study to determine whether high dose vitamin D has positive effect on behavior of autistic children.
In the etiopathogenesis of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) several hypotheses have been described that include inflammation, metabolic alterations, activation of oxidative stress, changes in the intestinal microbiota and in the elimination capacity of heavy metals. Adjuvant therapies with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids could modify these alterations.
This study will examine the effectiveness of riluzole for treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in Youth, Including those with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Autism is a behaviorally defined, lifelong disorder of the brain, affecting at least 1-2 per 1000 children. There is an increasing trend of autism worldwide. However, to date, there is still no cure for this devastating childhood disease. Autism is characterized by deficit in language, social communication and repetitive behavior. It is estimated that the annual cost of care for autism is $13 billion in USA alone. Children with autism usually have associated behavioral proble...
This multi-center, non-drug study will explore the relationship between exploratory biomarkers and functional dimensions in male adult individuals with Autistic Disorder or Asperger's Syndrome and healthy volunteer controls. Subjects will undergo a number of assessments on study visit Day 1.
Background: - Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are developmental disabilities characterized by impaired social interaction and repetitive and/or stereotypical behaviors. Research studies suggest that some individuals with ASD have very low blood cholesterol levels. This low cholesterol level and other abnormal sterol levels may be important markers for subtypes of ASD. Providing additional cholesterol to the diets of children with ASD may help improve behavior. - ...
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) affect approximately 1.1% of late adolescents and young adults, making it one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. Comorbid anxiety disorders affect many higher-functioning adolescents and young adults with ASD, causing substantial distress and impairment over and above that caused by an ASD diagnosis alone. While cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a first-line treatment for anxiety disorders among typically developing late adolesc...
This study will examine the effects of treatment with the anti-anxiety medicine buspirone on driving performance (eye tracking) in individuals with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder (HF-ASD). The study consists of an Assessment Visit at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), as well as two Driving Simulation visits that will take place at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Subjects will be given buspirone and asked to take the medication for the two days ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of fluoxetine orally dissolving tablets (ODT) on the repetitive behaviors core domain in children and adolescents with Autistic Disorder. The study will also investigate the effect of fluoxetine on the improvement of symptoms and the effects on daily living of the patient's family.
This study is an 8-week pilot trial with oxytocin nasal spray (Syntocinon) as a treatment for social impairment in children and adults with high functioning autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The investigators hypothesize that oxytocin will be safe, tolerable, and effective in improving social deficits in individuals with ASD.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of a 6-months supplementation with probiotic VSL#3 on inflammatory and gastrointestinal (GI) biomarkers, gastro-intestinal disturbances, behavioral and developmental profiles, and neurophysiological features in preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorders with or without GI symptoms.
This study will provide long-term safety data for patients who are taking aripiprazole for up to 1 year. Most patients enrolled in this study will have participated in a short-term study with aripiprazole (CN138-178 [NCT00332241] or CN138-179 [NCT00337571]).
Over 6% of children in Pakistan suffer from a developmental disorder (intellectual disability or Autistic spectrum disorder) and most receive no intervention.In an earlier proof of concept study we integrated social, technological and business innovations to develop and successfully pilot a sustainable service for such children in one rural population of 30,000. Affected families were identified through a mobile phone-based interactive voice response system, and organised into ...
The diagnosis of developmental disorders in adults is still difficult. Indeed, in France, there is not questionnaires to easily and accurately diagnose this disorder. Several diagnostic scales were developed in English. Among them, RAADS-R scale, which is a clinical tool that aims to better identify autism spectrum disorders including mild forms in adult people and help to diagnose of high-functioning autism . The objective of this study is to perform a complete validation of t...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an oral solution of risperidone (an antipsychotic medication) versus placebo in the treatment of behavioral symptoms in children with Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD).
This is a study to determine the effect of fluoxetine in the treatment of adult autism and on functional ability and behavior associated with autism. Evidence suggests abnormal serotonin function in autism. Fluoxetine is a selective inhibitor of the serotonin transporter.

The study results will be used to generate hypotheses for a larger randomized controlled clinical trial. Based on the available l...
People with schizophrenia spectrum disorders are faced with significant metacognitive impairments that include difficulties in their ability to form complex representations of the self and others. These impairments are associated with increased symptoms, impaired subjective self-experiences, and lower social functioning. As a result, interventions that enhance metacognitive capacity have been recently developed and explored. One of these interventions is Metacognitive Reflectio...
About 85% of patients with schizophrenia have cognitive impairments, executive functions being particularly affected. Executive dysfunction, and cognitive deficits in general, are important predictors of functional outcomes, including social problem solving, activities of daily living, life satisfaction, and the ability to return to work or school.The main objective of the current study is to examine the efficacy of group-based Goal Management Training (GMT) for patients with b...
