OBJECTIVE This was a randomized, double-blind, crossover study of 30 children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that evaluated the time course effects of four doses of Adderall (5, 10, 15, and 20 mg), an inactive control (placebo), and a positive control (clinical dose of methylphenidate). METHOD For each treatment condition, a capsule(More)
Previously in this journal, we reported an association of the dopamine D4 receptor gene (DRD4) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In a population-association (case-control) study of 39 children with a refined phenotype of ADHD and 39 ethnically matched controls, we observed an increased percentage of the 7 repeat allele (29% vs 12%) and(More)
Weight-loss interventions generally improve lipid profiles and reduce cardiovascular disease risk, but effects are variable and may depend on genetic factors. We performed a genetic association analysis of data from 2,993 participants in the Diabetes Prevention Program to test the hypotheses that a genetic risk score (GRS) based on deleterious alleles at 32(More)
In this article, we describe graphical and statistical methods developed to evaluate the response patterns of individual children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to different conditions of treatment with stimulant medication. We used data from an investigation of drug delivery patterns to demonstrate these methods. Thirty-one children(More)
In a randomized double-blind crossover study of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the time course effects of four doses of Adderall (5, 10, 15, and 20 mg) and an inactive (placebo) control, and an active (Ritalin) control were evaluated. A laboratory classroom setting was established in which subjective (teacher ratings of(More)
BACKGROUND The variable penetrance of breast cancer in BRCA1/2 mutation carriers suggests that other genetic or environmental factors modify breast cancer risk. Two genes of special interest are prohibitin (PHB) and methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), both of which are important either directly or indirectly in maintaining genomic integrity. (More)
Cathodal (-) iontophoresis of 9-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl-adenine 5'-monophosphate (vidarabine monophosphate; Ara-AMP) was performed once daily for 3 days for the treatment of experimental herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) keratitis in rabbit eyes, and the therapeutic efficacy was compared with that of topical treatment of Ara-AMP and idoxuridine (IDU)(More)

/inhibitory imbalance in autism spectrum disorder: Implications for interventions and therapeutics. The influence of illness-related variables, personal resources and context-related factors on real-life functioning of people with schizophrenia.
Multiple dependent variables were graphed for 29 subjects who participated in a double-blind evaluation of 4 doses of Adderall, plus positive (methylphenidate) and placebo control conditions. Five judges ranked the conditions for each subject, and analyses of individual subjects indicated that these rankings were concordant (reliable) across judges.(More)
