AbstractPurpose of the ReviewTo provide an overview of the concept of comorbidity, research that supports the common co-occurrence of neurodevelopmental disorders and directions for future research.Recent FindingsNeurodevelopmental disorders including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, developmental coordination disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and learning disorders co-occur more commonly than would be expected by chance. The potential causes for this comorbidity suggested in the research literature are genetic, epigenetic, neurobiological, and environmental.SummaryDirections for research such as imaging genetic...

We need accurate screening measures for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to ensure that children with the disorder are referred for assessment without raising concern for children with normal behaviour. The Strengths and Difficulties Questio...

Authors: Carlos G, Magalhães A, Isler AC, Comiran E, Fröehlich PE Abstract Lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (LDX), a long-acting prodrug stimulant indicated for the treatment of the attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), was subjected to forced degradation studies by acid and alkaline hydrolysis and the degradation proļ¬le was studied. To obtain between 10-30% of degraded product, acid and alkaline conditions were assessed with solutions of 0.01 M, 0.1 M, 0.5 M and 1 M of DCl and NaOD. These solutions were analyzed through 1H NMR spectra. Acid hydrolysis produced no degradation in 0.01 M and 0.1 M...

CONCLUSION: Ganaxolone improved neurobehavioural outcomes in males suggesting that neonatal treatment may be an option for reducing preterm-associated neurodevelopmental impairment. However, dosing studies are required to reduce the burden of unwanted side effects. PMID: 30237570 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A case-control study was performed to test the hypothesis that children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have chronic sleep deprivation and may be classified into specific sleep-related phenotypes.

CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that further research of circadian function in ADHD should focus on detection of genetic markers (e.g., using human skin fibroblasts) and development of BL-based therapeutic interventions. PMID: 30234417 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Drug treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with stimulants, such as methylphenidate, has been widespread across the developed countries and is also becoming common in adults. However, this seemingly effective treatment is not without controversy on the evidence that supports their use. In addition, disparities in the frequency of its use across the world are tremendous. Although stimulants are one of the standard therapies for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) lacks such a drug treatment. Focusing on neurogenetic conditions with defined genetic abnormalities, which have ASD as a ...

AbstractDiagnostic guidelines differ between DSM attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and ICD hyperkinetic disorder (HKD). Only 145 of 579 children age 7 –9 in the Multimodal Treatment Study of ADHD (the MTA) with combined-type DSM-IV ADHD met criteria for ICD-10 HKD, because major internalizing comorbidities and more stringent symptom count/pervasiveness requirements excluded most. The 145 HKD had significantly better 14-month medication response than the rest. We explored whether HKD had greater adult symptom persistence and/or impairment than other ADHD. Multi-informant assessments were done for 16 year...
