A Noninterventional Genotype/Phenotype Study of mGluR Mutations in Children and Adolescents With ADHD
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This noninterventional study will assess genomic changes in the metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) network in children and adolescents with ADHD.
Condition or disease
Attention Deficit Disorder With Hyperactivity
Male and female subjects 6 to 17 years of age with a primary psychiatric diagnosis of ADHD will be enrolled in this study. The subject and his or her parent/guardian must agree to genotyping to determine whether the subject has disruptive mutations within any of the approximately 274 mGluR-network genes, and complete an interview that will include information about the subject's ADHD history, treatment, and co-morbidities.
