Description

Description

This is a mentored Research Career Development Award to support the career development of clinical investigators in patient-oriented research. Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) is a highly prevalent disorder often associated with severe irritability that impedes participation in educational, therapeutic, and vocational programs, with escalating costs of care. Thus, the development of safe and effective pharmacotherapies that improve irritability is clearly relevant to public health. The investigator will conduct a double-blind, placebo-controlled and open-label continuation study of aripiprazole for irritability in 60 children and adolescents with PDD-NOS.
