Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Research Studies
* A new research study is being conducted at Nathan Kline Institute in Rockland County, New York, by William Greenberg, M.D. Thirty-two volunteers, ages 18 to 55, are being sought to help determine if adding an extra daily oral supplement to their current treatment will help relieve Obsessive-Compuslive symptoms. The main part of the study is a 12 week double-blind period involving monthly visits, during which participants will remains on their current treatment (medication and/or psychotherapy), and in addition take either the investigational study treatment or an inactive placebo. After this 12 week double-blind phase, all participants who wish to continue with the study will definitely receive the investigational treatment (no placebo) for another 12 week period. This study is supported by a research grant awarded from the Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation. Those interested should call Joanna Doerfer at (845) 398-2183 for more about eligibility criteria and other information.
