Amphetamines clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to new patients
open to eligible males ages 18-65
The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the tolerability, feasibility, and preliminary effectiveness of intranasal oxytocin administration prior to motivational enhancement group therapy sessions on laboratory-based measures of addiction, social connectedness, and stress responsivity in methamphetamine(meth)-using men who have sex with men (MSM). The investigators propose a randomized, double-blind, study of intranasal oxytocin versus placebo 40 IU prior to each of six Motivational Interviewing Group Therapy (MIGT) sessions in 28 mixed HIV sero-status MSM initiating treatment for amphetamine use disorder.
