Details and patient eligibility


The purpose of this study is to get a better understanding of the side effect burden and identify predictors of psychotic, mood and aggressive disorders in children and adolescents. The study's primary aim is to identify genetic risk factors for weight gain and metabolic abnormalities.

Full description

Participants will be evaluated for biological and genetic risk factors for nutritional and metabolic adverse effects associated with SGAPs (second generation antipsychotics) during 4 visits over 12 weeks. Participants will also be evaluated at month 6, 9, and 12. This study does not involve treatment for participants. Treatment of subjects enrolled in this study will be determined by their clinician and will remain unaffected by participation in this observational minimal risk study. All participants were prescribed risperidone (Risperdal) for the duration of study participation and doses ranged from 0.25mg to 6mg daily for 52 weeks.
