1. Semax, an analogue of adrenocorticotropin (4-10), is a potential agent for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and Rett syndrome.
Match Strength: 14.976
Psychostimulants, such as methylphenidate, are currently the most common used drug therapy for children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, a number of patients with ADHD either fail to respond to these drugs or experience side effects that preclude their use. The heptapeptide Semax is an analogue of the N-terminal fragment (4-10) of adrenocorticotropic hormone, but is completely devoid of any hormonal activity. It has been found to stimulate memory and attention in rodents and humans after intranasal application. Evidence from animal studies revealed that Semax can ... Read More »

3. Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder involves differential cortical processing in a visual spatial attention paradigm.
Match Strength: 13.695
OBJECTIVE: Inattention is undoubtedly one of the main characteristics of Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Nevertheless, a growing corpus of evidence shows that not all attentional processes are affected in this condition. This study aimed to explore the distribution of attentional resources in children with ADHD via a spatially shifted double-oddball visual task. METHODS: We recorded event-related potentials (ERPs) for all visual stimuli. Subjects were instructed to allocate attention in a specific area of visual space while ignoring all stimuli presented outside. Ten male ... Read More »

6. Volumetric MRI differences in treatment-naive vs chronically treated children with ADHD.
Match Strength: 12.425
OBJECTIVE: To determine if there are differences in the volume of the caudate and anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) between children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and controls, and if such differences are related to the subjects' history of stimulant treatment. METHODS: We performed a case-control study in an academic medical center. Twenty-one healthy controls, 16 children with ADHD, combined type with a history of stimulant treatment, and 14 children with ADHD, combined type treatment naive, underwent structural MRI. All children with ADHD were medication-free at the ... Read More »

7. Relationship of childhood behavior disorders to weight gain from childhood into adulthood.
Match Strength: 11.214
OBJECTIVE: Obesity and behavior disorders are important conditions that affect the health of children and adolescents; some evidence suggests that they are associated. However, these relationships have not been studied longitudinally from childhood to adulthood. We investigated childhood to adulthood weight change associated with attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders. METHODS: We analyzed data from a prospective cohort study in which 655 individuals observed before age 16.6 years, and assessed in 1983 (when aged 9.1 to 16.6 years), 1985-1986 (when 11.1 to 20.8 years), 1991-1994 ...

Match Strength: 11.193
OBJECTIVES: We examined the association between psychiatric disorders and tobacco use during pregnancy. METHODS: Data were derived from a population-based cohort of 744 pregnant African American and White low-income women living in urban and rural areas. The Diagnostic Interview Schedule was used to assess women for 20 different psychiatric disorders. RESULTS: In comparison with nonusers, persistent tobacco users (women who had used tobacco after confirmation of their pregnancy) and nonpersistent users (women who had used tobacco but not after pregnancy confirmation) were 2.5 and 2 times as ...

9. Childhood ADHD predicts risky sexual behavior in young adulthood.
Match Strength: 11.188
This study compared young adults (ages 18 to 26) with and without childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) on self-reported risky sexual behaviors. Participants were 175 men with childhood ADHD and 111 demographically similar men without ADHD in the Pittsburgh ADHD Longitudinal Study (PALS). Childhood ADHD predicted earlier initiation of sexual activity and intercourse, more sexual partners, more casual sex, and more partner pregnancies. Although childhood conduct problems did contribute significantly to risky sexual behaviors among participants with ADHD, there was also an ... Read More »

15. Influence of the antipsychotic drug pipamperone on the expression of the dopamine D4 receptor.
Match Strength: 7.933
The dopamine D4 receptor is a G protein-coupled receptor that binds with high affinity various antipsychotics. The receptor may be involved in attention/cognition, and in genetic studies a polymorphic repeat sequence in its coding sequence has been associated with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. We developed an inducible episomal expression system based on the reverse tetracycline transactivator and Epstein-Barr viral sequences. In HEK293rtTA cells expressing the dopamine D4 receptor from this episomal expression vector, addition of doxycycline in combination with sodium butyrate and ... Read More »
