Schizoaffective Disorder clinical trials at UCLA

4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Improving Cognition Through Telehealth Aerobic Exercise and Cognitive Training After a First Schizophrenia Episode

    open to eligible people ages 18-45

    The participants in the study will receive psychiatric treatment at the UCLA Aftercare Research Program. All participants in this 12-month RCT will receive cognitive training. Half of the patients will also be randomly assigned to the aerobic exercise and strength training condition, and the other half will be randomly assigned to the Healthy Living Group condition. The primary outcome measures are improvement in cognition and level of engagement in the in-group and at-home exercise sessions. Increases in the level of the patient's serum brain-derived neurotropic factor (specifically Mature BDNF) which causes greater brain neuroplasticity and is indicator of engagement in aerobic exercise, will be measured early in the treatment phase in order to confirm engagement of this target. In order to demonstrate the feasibility and portability of this intervention outside of academic research programs, the interventions will be provided via videoconferencing. The proposed study will incorporate additional methods to maximize participation in the exercise condition, including the use of the Moderated Online Social Therapy (MOST) platform to enhance motivation for treatment based on Self-Determination Theory principles, and a "bridging" group to help the participants generalize gains to everyday functioning. In addition, the exercise group participants will receive personally tailored text reminders to exercise.

  • Single-Arm Clinical Trial Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Amisulpride in Treating Patients With Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder Who Have Treatment-Resistant Positive Symptoms

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Amisulpride as an add-on therapy or alternative monotherapy in treating patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder who have treatment-resistant positive symptoms and who are not eligible for treatment with clozapine due to intolerance, failure from a prior clozapine trial, or unwillingness to be treated with clozapine.

  • Clozapine for the Prevention of Violence in Schizophrenia: a Randomized Clinical Trial

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Two-hundred and eighty individuals with schizophrenia who have a recent history of violent acts will be randomized in this 2-arm, parallel-group, 24-week, open-label, 7-site clinical trial to examine the effects of treatment with clozapine vs antipsychotic treatment as usual (TAU) for reducing the risk of violent acts in real-world settings
