Wanted: Adult ADHD Patients for a Clinical Trial to Evaluate an Investigational Medicine

Would you or someone you know like to participate in a research study for an investigational medicine to treat adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)? The MEASURE Study is now recruiting adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD for a clinical trial taking place at 13 doctors’ offices in the U.S. and two in Israel.

As you may know, some patients who are prescribed medications for ADHD either do not respond to these treatments or cannot tolerate them.

The MEASURE Study will examine the effects of the investigational medicine on inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity in adults with ADHD. This medicine is not a stimulant and works differently than approved ADHD medications, including other non-stimulant drugs.

Are You Eligible?

Adults between the ages of 18 and 55 who have been diagnosed with ADHD may be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. It is open to women (who are not pregnant or breastfeeding) and men who can:

  • Understand, read, write and speak English fluently
  • Swallow tablets or capsules
  • Attend doctors’ appointments regularly and reliably

Study Locations

Participation in the MEASURE Study is completely free and will be conducted in physician offices in the following cities:

  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • San Francisco, California
  • Gainesville, Florida
  • Miami, Florida
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Detroit, Michigan
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Akron, Ohio
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Houston, Texas
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Herndon, Virginia
  • Tel Aviv, Israel
  • Haifa, Israel

Reasons to Participate

Participating in a clinical research study gives you the opportunity to play an active part in your own healthcare and help others with ADHD. One half of the participants in the MEASURE Study will receive investigational ADHD medicine and the other half will receive a placebo that contains no active ingredients. But all participants will be contributing to research that could lead to better treatments for everyone living with ADHD.

If you are interested in participating, call 844-402-3990 or visit www.ADHDmeasurestudy.com for more information.

      Hi my name is Nicky Greensmith and I’m from the u.k. I have very severe adult ADHD and I’m currently on 60mg of ritalin a day which is the highest dose allowed. I feel that it’s not working and this is causing so many problems in everyday life and at work. I would like to be accepted to try this trial because I want to help others as well as help myself. If you can sort out getting me there and accommodation then I would gladly volunteer for the trial. I hope to hear back from you.

      I live in the UK and have a 17 year old grandson with ADHD. His medication has some effect but we still have along way to go to consider his condition as “managed”. I have been employed in adult education for over 40 years during which time I have found certain types of communication and methods are more effective with some people. Some of these techniques have worked well with my grandson and I am keen to see if these can be developed to help him and others. I would like to find a University or similar respected organisation to conduct some research in a professional manner so that, if successful, the results can be made available to the medical profession. I would be grateful if you could provide the name and contact details of anyone you feel might be interested in working with me. I am more than willing to travel to the US if necessary.
      Many thanks. Ray

      I am interested and live close to Baltimore. The only problem is that I am 58. Can the age limit be waived?

      Hi. Im very interested. I live in Massachusetts. Are there any future research studies available there? MY ADHD has taken over the last 10 years of my adult life. Looking back, I’ve always had symptoms beginning as a child but nothing compared to the last 10 years (I’m 39 years old).. I am always educating myself and reading articles. Despite it being a major inconvience, I also find it facinating, if that makes sense? I want to have a brain scan to confirm my severe adhd. Even though I have been diagnosed, seeing the concrete evidence would ease my mind more than anything. If any opportunities are available, Id willingly participate.
