NCT01082848

  Purpose

Evidence is lacking on the effects of different psychotropic drugs in the treatment of anorexia nervosa (AR). However, HVA levels seem to be elevated in this disease, therefore suggesting a role for drugs with a partial agonist profile on dopaminergic receptors. This is a pilot study assessing the effects of aripiprazole in teenagers with AR, compared with a placebo.
