Clinical Studies

We conduct many types of clinical studies in our department, including clinical trials and observational studies. A clinical trial is a medical research study that is evaluating the effectiveness and safety of a specific type of treatment. Well-performed clinical trials are the best way to discover better new treatments. An observational study is a medical research study that investigates a disorder or illness. Well-performed observational studies are essential to the progress of all branches of medicine, including psychiatry.

July 2024: Whole-Body Hyperthermia for Mood and Anxiety Disorders

The purpose of this study is to learn how whole-body hyperthermia (achieved by sauna) may work to decrease feelings of depression and anxiety. We know that this intervention works in adults with depression, but we do not know exactly how it works. We also want to find out if postpartum women will find this intervention acceptable and whether the way it works may be different in postpartum women from other people. This research is being done because we do not have very many treatments for depression or anxiety that work quickly. If we could learn more about how whole-body hyperthermia works, we might be able to develop other treatments to help people with depression or anxiety get better quickly. Participants may be eligible for this study if they are: ● 18-50 years old ● Currently in the postpartum period (up to six months after giving birth) ● With OR without depressive symptoms Participants will be compensated for their time and can earn up to $110 for participation. If you are interested, please click this link and complete the screening survey: https://redcap.ctsc.weill.cornell.edu/redcap_protocols/surveys/?s=FCJ4XHC3W47TWYHY This study is being conducted by the Psychoneuroimmunology in Pregnancy and Postpartum (PIPPI) Lab at Weill Cornell.

Emotion Regulation Training for Borderline Personality 

Research ers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai are studying ways of helping people with borderline disorder to better regulate their emotions. People who qualify to be in our study will be randomized to receive 12 sessions of one or another form of emotion regulation training and will have fMRI brain scans at the beginning and during the training process. Participants will be reimbursed for their time being scanned and completing questionnaires and will not be charged for the training sessions. Since this is a  research study, we do not know whether either of our trainings will be helpful to any participant in the study.

January 2024: Couples as Parents Study

Purpose of the Study:

The current study is for my dissertation for my PhD program in clinical psychology at Northern Illinois University. I and my advisor, Dr. Laura Pittman, are the only individuals conducting this study. The goal of the study is to test the actor-partner effects (i.e., the effects of mothers on fathers and fathers on mothers) between romantic relationship quality, coparenting, and parenting of mothers and fathers of children with psychopathology symptoms.

Methodology:

I am hoping to collect data from two-parent dyads who are in a romantic relationship (i.e., not divorced) of children between the ages of 6 and 18 with psychopathology symptoms. Parent dyads will be recruited by information about the study being shared to online groups and organizations (e.g., NAMI). Interested parents will use a link provided on a flyer to access the screener survey on Qualtrics. Once consent is given for the screener, they will complete the screener questionnaire. If they meet eligibility, they will provide their email and their partner’s email to receive separate emails with links to the full survey as well as a unique code to link the dyad together. The partner’s email will explain that their partner has volunteered them for this study and for them to receive compensation, they are also required to complete the full survey. Before starting the full survey, both participants will be asked to give consent. The entire survey should take less than 15 minutes. Questions will include the following: participants’ basic demographics, their child’s basic demographics; romantic relationship quality; perception of their coparenting relationship; parenting behaviors; and child psychopathology symptoms. Once surveys are completed, each participant will receive resources related to romantic relationship, coparenting, and parenting. Once both surveys are completed (i.e., one for each person in the romantic relationship), a $12.50 Amazon gift card will be sent to each participant’s email.

Each recruited dyad will have a 6- to 18-year-old child who is receiving mental health services (i.e., therapy or assessment) or display significant psychopathology symptoms. Dyads will need to have lived together and been in a romantic relationship with each other for at least two years and have lived with their child for this time frame. If they have two or more children within the sample age range, participants will be asked to think about the child receiving psychological services or with psychopathology symptoms. If they have more than one child receiving psychological services or with psychopathology symptoms, they will be directed to think about the oldest of these children under the age of 18.

Funding type:  Personal funds

Date after which new study participants will no longer be accepted:  January 1, 2025. Note that the IRB approval is until August 13, 2024. Therefore, an extension will be requested at that time.

January 2024: Neural Circuit Effects of Ketamine in Depression

Study Description:  Depression is a devastating public health problem, yet the scientific mechanisms underlying aspects of the disorder remain largely unknown. This project is designed to examine the role of the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC) in anhedonia and anxiety in humans with depression, as well as the acute and sustained effects of ketamine on agACC activation and depression symptoms. We will enroll 60 adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) and 60 healthy control (HC) adults, for a total of 120 participants. After a full medical clearance process, participants will complete an initial MRI scan, as well as cognitive assessments, clinical interviews and surveys. MDD participants will then be randomized to either a single infusion of ketamine or placebo, and undergo a follow-up MRI scan, cognitive assessments, clinical interviews and surveys at 1-day and 7-days post-treatment. Study population: We are looking for participants ages 18-65 who are medically healthy, currently struggling with depression or have major depressive disorder, and are currently not taking antidepressant medication. Contact Information: For more information, people can contact  [email protected] Expiration: The post will expire in April 2028 Therapeutic:  This study is therapeutic, offering a single IV infusion of ketamine or placebo randomized to participants with major depressive disorder.

December 2022: Impact of Sleep on Cognition and Functioning in People with Schizophrenia

Brief description:  Participants will first complete a baseline research assessment including questionnaires, clinical interviews, providing a urine sample, and a week-long, in-home characterization of sleep duration and quality using a sleep diary and an actigraph (a small digital device worn on the wrist). Next, participants will complete two sleep assessments overnight in a sleep lab (e.g., polysomnography) using two sleep schedules: 1) an undisturbed sleep (8 hours); and 2) a restricted sleep (4 hours). As part of each of these overnight sleep assessments, participants will be connected to EEG equipment and complete memory tasks before going to sleep and after waking up, as well as provide blood and saliva samples. Finally, after each overnight sleep, participants will complete a 3-day assessment of “real-world” daily functioning including symptoms, mood, and emotion regulation using smartphones. Typically, the two overnight sleep assessments are scheduled 1-2 weeks apart, with the study participation usually completed within one month.  Additional information is available at:  https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05032963?term=kimhy&draw=2&rank=1

Who is eligible:  Individuals ages 18-50 who have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, schizoaffective, or schizophreniform disorder. Taking antipsychotic medication for >7 weeks and on current doses for 4 weeks.

Time involvement: Participants complete two separate overnight sleep assessments in a sleep lab using two sleep schedules. For each overnight sleep assessment, participants usually arrive at the sleep lab at 7 PM and leave to return home in the morning at 10 AM.

Compensation: Yes – eligible participants may receive up to $320 for completion of all the study procedures, as well as $10 reimbursement of travel expenses for each research visit.

November 2021: Bipolar Caregiver Survey

Dear Bipolar Caregivers,

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

We all know that the highs and lows and ups and downs of your loved ones can be hard, really hard – the worry, the fear, the uncertainty, you wanting to help, but not knowing how to. It was true for me and my caregiver. I like to say that I live with bipolar, but my loved one does too. He is critical to me and my well-being. He notices my symptoms before I do. He’s my first line of defense in addressing things before they escalate.

I think bipolar caregivers need more credit for the difficult role they play. I want to help caregivers, so I teamed up with a leading bipolar global scholar – Professor Gordon Parker at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) – to identify and analyze your concerns. We want to better understand the support you need and what would be helpful. We are hoping that through the power of shared lived experience and academic study, we can increase awareness of the support needs required to improve the lives of people living with bipolar and their caregivers.

We’re surveying bipolar caregiver needs. If you wish to participate, you can just click on the link below. It’s anonymous too. We promise to try to call much more needed attention to your needs. We are hoping to provide insights that could help people living with bipolar and their families reach recovery together. When families work together, bipolar does not stand a chance against us.

October 2021: Early Psychosis Research Study

This is a 12-week study of levetiracetam added to a second-generation antipsychotic in early psychosis patients who have been ill for less than 5 years and continue to experience psychotic symptoms (delusions and/or hallucinations) despite at least 8 weeks of antipsychotic treatment. Levetiracetam (Keppra) is an FDA-approved medication for the treatment of epilepsy; it reduces excessive activity in the brain. This study will test the hypothesis that adding levetiracetam will improve psychotic symptoms that are unresponsive to antipsychotic treatment and will protect the brain from atrophy (volume loss). All subjects will receive a comprehensive psychiatric and medical evaluation by Dr. Goff as part of participation.

Participants will complete screening and baseline visits before being randomized to levetiracetam or placebo twice daily added to a second-generation antipsychotic prescribed by their psychiatric provider. They will complete weekly study visits for the first 4 weeks (Baseline, Weeks 2-4), and then attend visits at weeks 6, 8, and 12. Participants will be studied both by assessing change in symptom severity and cognitive performance over the 12 weeks, as well as using an imaging measure of hippocampal volume integrity at baseline and week 12. After completing week 12, participants will taper and stop the levetiracetam or placebo over 9 days.

To be eligible for this study, you must be:

  • 16-40 years old
  • Experienced a first episode of psychosis within the past 5 years, and have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or schizophreniform disorder
  • Have taken antipsychotic medication for a minimum of 8 weeks, and at a stable dose for at least 4 weeks
  • Experiencing psychotic symptoms (delusions and/or hallucinations) despite antipsychotic treatment

Participants can receive up to $495.00 for completion of the study. Payments will be via cash or check.

  • $25 for Screening (Visit 1)
  • $75 for Baseline (Visit 2)
  • $25 for Weeks 2,3,4,8
  • $50 for Week 6
  • $85 for Week 12
  • $15 for Follow-up visit post tapering regimen
  • There are also additional optional assessments participants can receive payment for

October 2020: Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms of the Accelerated Aging Phenotype in PTSD

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between aging processes and PTSD, which may help identify novel therapeutic targets to promote healthier aging trajectories for PTSD patients. Chronic PTSD increases mortality risk from medical diseases, promotes aging-associated syndromes such as frailty, and is linked to faster cognitive decline in older adults. One strong possibility is that PTSD leads to these adverse health outcomes by accelerating biological aging in the brain and body.

Participants will be asked to attend a total of 3 visits consisting of: an evaluation, an MRI, and a day of neuropsychological testing.

To participate, individuals must be 50 years or older. This study is enrolling healthy control volunteers.

To compensate for the time required for the eligibility evaluation, we offer $50 cash upon completion. Additionally, you will be paid $300 if you complete all procedures in this study, including the two additional study visits. Payment will take place in the form of a check.

October 2020: Optimizing Outcomes of Treatment-Resistant Depression in Older Adults

Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is a major health problem for the growing population of older adults. Unfortunately, there is a lack of evidence-based treatments that establish the benefits vs. risk of medication in this patient population. The purpose of this research study is to find out which antidepressants work best in individuals over the age of 60 who did not respond or were intolerant to at least two antidepressant medications. The study offers treatment with FDA approved medications: aripiprazole, bupropion, lithium, and nortriptyline.

Participants will be prescribed medication by the study psychiatrist. Progress will be monitored through biweekly phone calls or visits with the study staff. Participants will be asked to complete neuropsychological assessments, answer questions about their mood, and report medication tolerance.

To participate, individuals must be 60 years or older.

Subjects are paid $50 for completing initial evaluation. If found eligible and enrolled into the study, subjects receive $75 at the baseline visit, $75 at the end of 10-weeks of treatment, and $25 at each of 3 follow up visits after completing the initial 10 weeks of acute treatment.

June 2020: Estradiol as a Cognitive Enhancer for the Treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Women

The purpose of this study is to determine if taking a pill of estradiol (a form of estrogen) together with prolonged exposure (PE) therapy can improve this treatment outcome in women with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy is a validated, evidence-based talk therapy that focuses on helping individuals with PTSD process memories of the trauma. Based on previous findings that the hormone estrogen facilitates people learning not to fear things they had feared before, we want to supplement prolonged exposure therapy with an estradiol pill given before each therapy session. Participants will be randomly assigned to either take estrogen or a placebo (which looks just like the estrogen pill but contains no medicine). Participants will not know which pill they are taking. As part of this study, participants will be asked to go through two separate fMRI scans, one before prolonged exposure therapy treatment and one after. This machine is routinely used by scientists to study the brain and does not use any radiation (x-rays).

The study involves 12 visits to our lab, which is located in midtown east Manhattan, over the course of a 6-9-week period. These visits can be broken down into 2 experimental days, 6 prolonged exposure therapy sessions, and 2 more experimental days. Participation in this study requires 12 visits over six weeks. Six of these visits will be therapy sessions. The other 6 days include assessment visits and going through an emotional learning and memory task before and after therapy. Participants will undergo a fear conditioning procedure that involves receiving an annoying but not painful, half-second electric current applied to the fingers. This procedure will be conducted during two consecutive days. The second day will be conducted in an fMRI scanner. Participants will be paid for their time. Blood samples will be gathered at different time points of the study. There will also be follow-up visits at 3 months and 6 months.

Eligibility criteria: Females between the ages of 18-45 who are taking an oral contraceptive (i.e., birth control)

Is the study therapeutic? Yes – participants will receive free Prolonged Exposure therapy no matter which study arm they are assigned to (i.e., placebo vs estradiol pill).

Is the study funded? Yes, this study is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

Who will be conducting the study? The study is being conducted at two different sites: Dr. Mohammed Milad is conducting the study within the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Langone Health, and Dr. Edna Foa is conducting the study within the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.

Will subjects be paid? Yes – The total compensation for all completed parts will be 480 dollars. Participants will receive 10 dollars for each study visit from visits 1-11 to help defray costs of travel and time. Participants will then receive 270 dollars upon completion of visit 12.

Participants will receive 50 dollars at each remaining follow-up visit. Participants who drop out of the study will be paid for the visits they attended.

Lucrative Opportunities Beyond Surveys: Clinical Trials and More

When it comes to earning money and contributing to valuable research, there are lucrative opportunities beyond surveys in NYC. One such opportunity is participating in clinical trials, which offer a unique and legitimate way for research participants to make a significant impact.

Clinical trials involve testing new drugs, treatments, or medical devices on human participants to determine their safety, effectiveness, and potential side effects. These trials are crucial for the advancement of medical research and the development of new treatments that can improve the lives of many. By participating in clinical trials, individuals can not only earn extra income but also contribute to the advancement of medical knowledge.

Clinical trials often require a specific number of participants, usually around 6-8 people, to gather sufficient data for analysis. Participants are carefully selected based on certain criteria determined by the researchers. The duration of clinical trials can vary, ranging from a few days to several months, depending on the nature of the study.

Payment and Tailored Participation Opportunities

One of the significant advantages of participating in clinical trials is the potential for lucrative compensation. Research participants can be paid anywhere from per session to a monthly stipend, depending on the length and complexity of the trial.

This flexibility allows individuals to participate in trials that align with their availability and commitments.

It’s important to note that participating in clinical trials requires a commitment to follow the protocol and guidelines set by the researchers. Participants may be required to undergo medical examinations, adhere to specific treatment plans, and report any adverse effects experienced during the trial.

Aside from clinical trials, there are various other legitimate research opportunities in NYC that offer reliable ways to contribute and earn extra income. These opportunities may include focus groups, product testing, online surveys, and more.

Sharing Opinions and Answering Questions: How Participants Are Compensated

Participants in market research studies play a crucial role in shaping the success of new products and services. Companies value their opinions and rely on their insights to make informed business decisions. In return for their valuable feedback, participants are compensated in various ways, ensuring a fair exchange for their time and effort.

One common method of compensation is through earning points. Participants accumulate points by sharing their opinions and answering questions during the research study. These points can then be exchanged for a range of rewards, such as gift cards, merchandise, or even cash. This system allows participants to choose the rewards that best suit their preferences and interests.

For each session or survey completed, participants receive a predetermined amount that reflects the time and effort involved.

Ultimately, the compensation provided to participants in market research studies recognizes and values their contributions. It is a way for companies to express gratitude for their time, insights, and willingness to answer questions. By compensating participants, companies ensure that the research process remains mutually beneficial, fostering a dynamic and rewarding relationship between researchers and participants.
