This study was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of pregabalin-a novel alpha(2)-delta ligand with analgesic, anxiolytic, and anticonvulsant activity-for treating neuropathic pain in patients with post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). Two hundred and thirty-eight patients were randomised into this multicentre, doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial to(More)
OBJECTIVE This study characterizes the tolerability of ziprasidone in children and adolescents with bipolar mania, schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder. METHOD Sixty-three subjects (aged 10-17 years) entered an open-label study consisting of a 3-week fixed-dose period (Period 1) and a subsequent 24-week flexible-dose period (Period 2). In Period 1,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ziprasidone adjunctive to a mood stabilizer for the maintenance treatment of bipolar mania. METHOD Subjects with DSM-IV bipolar I disorder with a Mania Rating Scale score > or = 14 were enrolled. Subjects achieving > or = 8 consecutive weeks of stability with open-label ziprasidone (80-160 mg/d) and lithium(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE S-100B and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) serum concentrations can be used as peripheral markers of glial cell and neuronal damage, respectively. We investigated these markers in a clinical trial with the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA) antagonist ZK200775 in acute ischemic stroke patients. METHODS In a(More)
BACKGROUND Food is known to increase the bioavailability of ziprasidone. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of meals of differing caloric and fat content on steady-state ziprasidone exposure in a stable, treated group of subjects with DSM-IV diagnoses of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, or psychotic disorder (not otherwise(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine global functioning, health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and clinical outcome in children and adolescents with bipolar I disorder, schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder following ziprasidone treatment. METHODS Sixty-three subjects (aged 10-17 years) received open-label ziprasidone, titrated from 10 to(More)
Clinical trial participants often require additional instruction to prevent idiosyncratic interpretations regarding completion of patient-reported outcomes. The Analgesic, Anesthetic, and Addiction Clinical Trial Translations, Innovations, Opportunities, and Networks (ACTTION) public-private partnership developed a training system with specific,(More)
There is tremendous interpatient variability in the response to analgesic therapy (even for efficacious treatments), which can be the source of great frustration in clinical practice. This has led to calls for "precision medicine" or personalized pain therapeutics (ie, empirically based algorithms that determine the optimal treatments, or treatment(More)
INTRODUCTION SEP-432 is a triple monoamine reuptake inhibitor of norepinephrine (NE), serotonin (5-HT), and dopamine (DA), based on in vitro binding studies. We sought evidence that SEP-432 engages these monoamine systems by measuring concentrations of monoamines and/or their main metabolites in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma and comparing results to(More)
On April 30th, 2011 the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) held a workshop to identify key problems in recent epilepsy clinical trials and propose approaches to address the barriers that impede development of new therapeutic options for epilepsy. Preliminary recommendations were made for selection criteria for subjects entered(More)
