A double blind, placebo-controlled study of the effects of post-retrieval propranolol on reconsolidation of memory for craving and cue reactivity in cocaine dependent humans
TLDR
This double-blind, placebo-controlled laboratory study provides the first evidence that propranolol administration following CCE may modulate memories for learning processes that subserve cocaine craving/cue reactivity in CD humans. Expand
A double-blind randomized controlled trial of N-acetylcysteine in cannabis-dependent adolescents.
TLDR
This is the first randomized controlled trial of pharmacotherapy for cannabis dependence in any age group to yield a positive primary cessation outcome in an intent-to-treat analysis, and findings support NAC as a pharmacotherapy to complement psychosocial treatment for Cannabis dependence in adolescents. Expand
Stress- and cue-elicited craving and reactivity in marijuana-dependent individuals
TLDR
Marijuana cue exposure and a social stressor increased craving in marijuana-dependent individuals, and completion of the TSST did not increase craving response to subsequent marijuana cue exposure. Expand
Effect of a Brief Memory Updating Intervention on Smoking Behavior: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Retrieval-extinction training substantially attenuated craving to both familiar and novel smoking cues and reduced the number of cigarettes smoked per day by participants 1 month after treatment relative to extinction training alone. Expand
Reactivity to laboratory stress provocation predicts relapse to cocaine.
TLDR
The findings provide further evidence of the ability of laboratory paradigms to predict relapse and interventions aimed at normalizing stress response, as measured using laboratory Paradigms, may prove useful in relapse prevention. Expand
Standardized preoperative corticosteroid treatment in neonates undergoing cardiac surgery: results from a randomized trial.
TLDR
Combined preoperative and intraoperative use of glucocorticoids in neonatal cardiac surgery does not favorably affect early clinical outcomes and may exacerbate perioperative renal dysfunction. Expand
Bupropion SR and contingency management for adolescent smoking cessation.
TLDR
Combined bupropion SR and CM appears efficacious, at least in the short-term, for adolescent smoking cessation and may be superior to either intervention alone. Expand
Buspirone treatment of cannabis dependence: A randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Buspirone was not more efficacious than placebo in reducing cannabis use, and important gender differences were noted, with women having worse cannabis use outcomes with buspirone treatment. Expand
A randomized placebo-controlled trial of N-acetylcysteine for cannabis use disorder in adults.
TLDR
There is no evidence that NAC 1200mg twice daily plus CM is differentially efficacious for CUD in adults when compared to placebo plus CM, and this discrepant finding between adolescents and adults with CUD may have been influenced by differences in development, cannabis use profiles, responses to embedded behavioral treatment, medication adherence, and other factors. Expand
A randomized, placebo-controlled laboratory study of the effects of d-cycloserine on craving in cocaine-dependent individuals
TLDR
The reduction of cocaine cue reactivity in the PBO group suggests that the study procedures were sufficient to produce extinction, and DCS did not facilitate extinction learning and may have enhanced craving. Expand
