We list hundreds of Clinical Trials about "The Meth Project" on BioPortfolio. We draw our references from global clinical trials data listed on ClinicalTrials.gov and refresh our database daily.
We have published hundreds of The Meth Project news stories on BioPortfolio along with dozens of The Meth Project Clinical Trials and PubMed Articles about The Meth Project for you to read. In addition to the medical data, news and clinical trials, BioPortfolio also has a large collection of The Meth Project Companies in our database. You can also find out about relevant The Meth Project Drugs and Medications on this site too.
Studies demonstrate that methamphetamine (meth) use is associated with high-risk sexual behavior among MSM, putting meth-using MSM at extraordinarily high risk for transmitting or acquiring HIV. No studies have tested the feasibility and acceptability of conducting pharmacologic interventions to reduce meth use and meth-associated sexual risk behavior among MSM. The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the feasibility enrolling and retaining meth-dependent MSM into a ph...
The primary aim of this project is to use a randomized single-blind sham-controlled study to investigate if high frequency repetitive transmagnetic stimulation (HF-rTMS) can modulate cue-induced craving in adult methamphetamine (METH) users. The investigators hypothesize that HF-rTMS directed at left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) will result in a reduction in craving for METH compared to sham-controlled rTMS in adults with methamphetamine use disorder (MUD) as evidence...
Studies demonstrate that methamphetamine (meth) use is associated with high-risk sexual behavior among men who have sex with men (MSM), putting meth-using MSM at extraordinarily high risk for transmitting or acquiring HIV. This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of the medication aripiprazole for methamphetamine-using individuals, including MSM, and will assess efficacy, acceptability, tolerability, safety, and adherence to study medication.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether DAT availability, assessed by WIN binding, in the striatum is altered in cocaine or methamphetamine dependence. To determine whether DA synthesis capacity, assessed by FDOPA uptake, in the striatum is altered in Coc or Meth dependence. To determine whether the PET tracers, WIN or FDOPA, will differentiate Meth induced alterations from those induced by Coc use. To determine whether the PET characterization of striatal alteratio...
Despite increasing knowledge about and use of PrEP nationally, HIV continues to have disproportionate impact among cisgender men and transgender persons who have sex with men and transgender persons (MSM/TG), with methamphetamine (meth)-users being at particularly high risk. Building on their preliminary work, the investigators will pilot text messaging and peer navigation interventions to support PrEP use among meth-using MSM/TG with potential to be cost-effective, scalable, a...
The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the tolerability, feasibility, and preliminary effectiveness of intranasal oxytocin administration prior to motivational enhancement group therapy sessions on laboratory-based measures of addiction, social connectedness, and stress responsivity in methamphetamine(meth)-using men who have sex with men (MSM). We propose a randomized, double-blind, study of intranasal oxytocin versus placebo 40 IU prior to each of three Motivational ...
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime [UNODC] World Drug Report, the annual prevalence of drug use seemed to be stable for the past few years. However, new psychoactive substances (NPS) have increased drastically in both supply and demand.Many NPS were discovered at the same time as other drugs, and it was simply, for whatever reasons, these other drugs became popular. The majority of these substances are chemicals produced by tweaking or altering the molecu...
This study will link findings from neuroscience with clinical outcomes using contingency management (CM) to identify changes in brain structure and function that emerge during purely behavioral therapy for methamphetamine (MA) use.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a specially developed group counseling approach is better able to help HIV-positive gay and bisexual men (GBM) who use crystal meth to stop using methamphetamines, reduce sexual risk behaviors, and stay on their HIV medications than a standard drug treatment program. Another purpose is to determine whether having a drug abuse treatment program in an HIV medical clinic makes it easier to attend treatment than going to a separate l...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether performance on neurocognitive measures predicts treatment outcomes in individuals with substance abuse disorders. A second purpose is to compare the risk of damage, as well as actual damage, to DNA and other cell parts in people with substance abuse disorders to that of people who do not have substance abuse disorders.
Project POWER will test the efficacy of a multi-session HIV Prevention program, adapted from an existing program (Project SAFE), for incarcerated women in the rural South.
This study was based on baseline data derived from a large prospective study called the Suwon Project (SP), a cohort comprising nonrandom convenience samples of elderly people, all of whom are ethnic Koreans aged over 60 years.
This study will evaluate the potential impact of a brief musical intervention, the Lullaby Project, in a sample of pregnant women. The study aims are: 1. To determine the potential effect of the Lullaby Project on maternal-fetal attachment. 2. To evaluate the potential impact of the Lullaby Project on maternal mental health. 3. To characterize the potential impact of the Lullaby Project on perceived maternal stress.
This study will design and rigorously evaluate the efficacy of Project Legacy, a five week positive youth development intervention to decrease sexual risk for unintended pregnancies and STIs among youth experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness aged 14-19. This randomized control trial will compare Project Legacy to a usual services control.
Specific Aim 8. Evaluate the efficacy of Project UPLIFT for reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD among African Americans at immediate posttest, after 3 months, and after 5 months.
This project tests the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of the Couples Health Project (CHP). CHP is a brief (3-session) couples-based Motivational Interviewing intervention which addresses drug use and sexual HIV transmission risk among partnered HIV negative YMSM (ages 18-29). The proposed project includes a randomized controlled trial (RCT) involving 50 couples who are randomized to complete either the CHP intervention or an attention-matched education con...
This is an open-label study in adults to assess at-home Project: EVO Monitor measurements over repeat play cycles. The study has three arms:playing multiple times per day, once daily, and once weekly for 4 to 8 weeks.
This project is aimed at better understanding how children living in agricultural environments are exposed to pesticides, and how such exposures can be prevented or reduced. The project will develop and implement a community-wide intervention to reduce the transfer of pesticides from the workplace to the home (take home pathway).
The Purpose Project intervention is an 8-session progressive structure that was developed based on theoretical and scientific evidence from psychology and occupational therapy. The goal of the intervention is to provide participants with information, tools, and support that help them move towards reclaiming a sense of self-grounded purpose in daily life. The study will use a convenience sample of women with breast cancer to evaluate the feasibility of the Purpose Project interv...
