  • Determining Metabolic Effects of Valproate and Antipsychotic Therapy.
    Interventional study. This study will determine the metabolic processes responsible for high levels of blood glucose, metabolism disorders, and weight gain in people with schizophrenia who have been treated with antipsychotic medications in combination with valproate. Ages 18-60. Location in St. Louis, MO.
  • Determining Metabolic Effects of Valproate and Antipsychotic Therapy.
    Interventional study.

Ages 18-60. Location in St. Louis, MO.
  • Screening for Childhood-Onset Psychotic Disorders.
    Evaluation study. The purpose of this study is to screen and evaluate children with psychotic disorders to establish or confirm their diagnosis and to collect data about their condition. Ages 5 and over. Location in Bethesda, MD.
  • Inpatient Evaluation of Adults With Schizophrenia.
    Evaluation study. The purpose of this study is to understand the biologic basis of schizophrenia and to determine which symptoms are related to the illness itself and which are related to medications used to treat the illness. Ages 18 and over. Location in Bethesda, MD.
  • Studies of Frontal Lobe Brain Functioning in Schizophrenia.
    Evaluation study. The purpose of this study is to use brain imaging technology to investigate the role of the frontal lobe of the brain in the thinking of individuals with schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorders and healthy volunteers. Ages 18-90. Location in Bethesda, MD.
  • Brain Tissue Collection for Neuropathological Studies.
    Evaluation study. The purpose of this study is to collect and study the brain tissue of deceased individuals to learn more about the nervous system and mental disorders. Locations in Washington, DC; Bethesda, MD; Fairfax, VA.
  • Evaluation of the Genetics of Bipolar Disorder.
    Evaluation study. This study looks to identify genes that may affect a person's chances of developing bipolar disorder (BP) and related conditions. Ages 18 and over. Location in Bethesda, MD.
  • Genetic Study of Schizophrenia.
    Evaluation study. This large ongoing study at NIMH investigates the neurobiology of schizophrenia by identifying susceptibility genes, evaluating their impact on brain function to better understand how to treat and prevent this illness. Ages 18 and over. Location in Bethesda, MD.
  • Evaluating Genetic Risk Factors for Childhood-Onset Schizophrenia.
    Evaluation study. A study of children and adolescents (current N=100) with very early onset by age 12 (COS) of DSM-III-R defined schizophrenia with (97-M-0126) is examining the clinical, neurobiological, early neurodevelopmental, genetic, and clinical drug response characteristics of these cases. Ages 6 and over. Location in Bethesda, MD.
