Are you the parent of a child or teen aged 5-17 years with Autism? Does your child have difficulties in social situations? Do they have trouble developing friendships or making conversations? If so, they may qualify for a clinical trial study at Queen’s University! We are currently studying a drug called Arbaclofen to improve social functioning in children and teens with Autism.

Study Title: A randomized placebo-controlled trial of Arbaclofen vs. placebo in the treatment of children and adolescents with ASD.
Study Description: We are investigating a study drug called Arbaclofen against placebo for improving social & global functioning and communication in children and teens with autism.
We are looking for: children between 5 and 17 years old diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), can verbally communicate, and tolerates (no major worries) blood work.
Study Duration: It is an 18-weeks-long trial with approx. 9 study visits in Kingston, ON
Tasks: Social & cognitive assessments, blood work, EEG, questionnaires, parent interviews.
Risks: May include sedation (tiredness) & upset stomach.
Benefits: Arbaclofen may help improve social functioning; The information we collect from this study is to help us understand ASD better and how to treat it. You may or may not benefit directly from participating in this study, depending on whether this drug is found to work. This study may help other children and adolescents with ASD in the future if the researchers find a new treatment option.
*Once study completed, optional open-label phase for participants to receive the study drug.

We are happy to announce that our POND project (www.pond-network.ca) has been renewed. We currently have sites in Kingston (Q-POND) and in Toronto and Hamilton and London. Starting April 1st our 5-year renewal began and we have been busy with assessments and brain scans and our genetics and immune studies. Knowing about the renewal has meant we have been able to pursue more ways to recruit for our studies to involve individuals up to 22 years old both with AND without neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and ADHD. We have also been fortunate that the Limestone District School Board has allowed us to reach out to their school administrators to ask if they are willing to distribute information about our study. If you are interested in helping us recruit (would like posters or flyers) or have a possible connection we can reach out to (in particular at elementary or high schools) we’d love to hear from you. Please email [email protected] or call me (Melissa Hudson) at 613-548-4419 x 1215. And of course feel free to share this post. Thanks!

Are you between the ages of 16-22 interested in research and neuroimaging techniques? If so, you may be eligible for POND, a neurodevelopmental study looking at genetics, the immune system, and brain development. You will get to spend around 2.5 hours at the Queen’s Genomics Lab where you will complete assessments (IQ, language, computer tasks) as well as provide a blood sample. You will receive a $25 gift card for completing this portion of the study. Then, if you are interested, you can complete an MRI brain scan of around 1 hour at Queen's University (with final images provided for you to keep) and receive an additional $10.
