Clinical Studies


High Dose Lurasidone for Patients with Treatment-Resistant Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia patients who are treatment-resistant will be given an opportunity to participate in a trial that could alleviate their moderate to severe symptoms. While under supervision, participants in this study will receive an adequate dose of an atypical antipsychotic (lurasidone) to treat their previously unmanageable cases.

Investigation of the Integrity of Cerebellar-mediated Timing Functions in Schizophrenia

The purpose of this study is to better understand how eye movements are related to information processing in healthy people and people diagnosed with schizophrenia. We will specifically be examining the learning, unlearning, and timing of automatic eye-blinks. Because much is known about brain areas that control these automatic eye-blinks, we will learn more about the relationship between these brain areas and other aspects about how the brain handles information.

IRT-based Self-report Screener for Prodromal and Early Psychosis

This study is designed to develop new surveys for youth and young adults to assist with early detection of psychosis, leading to significantly improved treatment for this illness. The study will evaluate feelings and experiences that are relevant to youth and young adults like those being served at Centerstone.

Extended Duration Pharmacotherapy for Prevention of Relapse to Smoking

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of 40 weeks, extended-duration varenicline and CBT, compared with placebo and CBT, for prevention of relapse to smoking in patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. The main hypothesis was that the varenicline group would achieve greater abstinence at the end of the 40-week, double-blind, relapse-prevention phase than the placebo control group. The study was published in the January 2014 issue of JAMA.
