Autism clinical trials at UCSF

6 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Building Resilience and Appropriate Independence in Young Adults With Autism

    open to eligible people ages 18-26

    This study evaluates the effects of a 12-week life-skills resilience curriculum for young adults with autism. The project utilizes a wait-list crossover design and compares the intervention to standard care.

  • Sustainable Mindfulness and Resilience Training (SMART)

    open to eligible people ages 20-60

    Investigators are proposing a 6-week mindfulness and resilience training intervention tailored for caregivers of children with autism. Investigators will assess increases the caregiver's well-being and levels of psychological acceptance of their life situation as it relates to their child with autism. The mindfulness training focuses on self-regulation of emotional responses and acceptance of internal experiences. Self-report measures and qualitative interviews will be administered at baseline and post-intervention. Investigators will compare the active group to a control group of caregivers who are on the waitlist to receive the intervention.

  • A 12-Week Placebo-Controlled Study to Investigate the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of RO7017773 in Participants Aged 15-45 Years With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study will investigate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of RO7017773 in participants aged 15-45 years who have been diagnosed with ASD and who have a score of >/=50 on the Wechsler Abreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI-II).

  • A Multi-site Comparison of Social Visual Engagement to Clinical Diagnosis for Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is an outpatient, multicenter, prospective, pivotal, double-blind, within-subject comparison trial of the Marcus Autism Center Investigational Device (MAC-ID) diagnostic procedure relative to the gold-standard (reference standard), current best practice expert clinician diagnosis (ECD) of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children 16-30 months of age. Consecutive pediatric patients from the intended population (i.e. children 16-30 months of age) recruited from pediatric referrals and general advertisements will be the subjects of this trial. All subjects will undergo the MAC-ID diagnostic procedure (test). All subjects will also undergo the current best practice clinical diagnostic procedure, using standardized ASD diagnostic instruments and standardized developmental assessments, to produce the ECD of each child's ASD status (reference/gold standard). The study consists of a screening phase and diagnostic evaluation phase to assess the validity (sensitivity and specificity), safety, and effectiveness of the MAC-ID when used to diagnose ASD. Subjects will be enrolled in the trial for a period of 1 day. The trial will be completed in approximately 12 months. The overall study objective is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the MAC-ID to accurately diagnose ASD (primary analysis), as well as to accurately assess severity of ASD (secondary analysis) in very young pediatric subjects. The primary endpoints of this study are the diagnostic result from the MAC-ID and the diagnostic results from the ECD evaluation, both of which are either positive or negative for ASD. Each subject will undergo the Social Developmental Testing Device procedure and an examination by a clinical expert in the field of ASD diagnosis; all study center site personnel (including the expert clinicians responsible for the ECD evaluation) will be blinded to MAC-ID results.

  • SweetDreams Sleep Study for Children With Autism

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This proposal will acquire preliminary data on the feasibility and effectiveness of an innovative and scalable strategy for improving access to effective sleep health care for preschool-aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The investigators will develop and test an on-line delivery adaptation of the existing behavioral sleep interventions for preschool aged children.
