ACDS

  • The Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS) was formed in 1991 as a cooperative agreement between the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the University of California San Diego. The ADCS is a major initiative for Alzheimer's disease (AD) clinical studies in the Federal government, addressing treatments for both cognitive and behavioral symptoms. This is part of the NIA Division of Neuroscience program's effort to facilitate the discovery, development and testing of new drugs for the treatment of AD and also is part of the Alzheimer's Disease Prevention Initiative.

Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Research

  • There is a growing understanding of how powerful brain processes contribute to behaviors that create and sustain anorexia and bulimia nervosa. Such knowledge has resulted in court rulings, such as a recent New Jersey case, that have classified eating disorders as a biologically based brain disorder. In turn, this has compelled insurance companies to cover eating disorders in the same way they pay for physical illnesses. However, relatively little has been done to apply new understanding of biology to develop more effective treatment. The ED program at UCSD is an international leader in employing new treatments based on science and research into the neurobiology of AN and BN.

Testosterone Trial Study, MrOS Study ( Osteoporotic Fracture Study in Men)

  • Testosterone Trial study is a clinical trial study to learn if testosterone treatment using double-blinded study gel ( Androgel) will help men aged 65 and older to improve walking, sexual function, energy and low red blood count(anemia). This study is conducted in 12 centers in the United States with University of Pennsylvania as the coordinating center. Clinic visit started in 2009 and projected end date will be June 2015 for end of follow-up. There are 71 men enrolled and 27 men in sub-study for Bone Trial. MrOS study is an observational study of men 65 years and older to learn about age-related medical conditions in older men, including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and prostate disease. The study is being conducted in 6 centers in the United States, as well as in Hong Kong and in Sweden. This study started in 2000 with 1013 men enrolled and is still ongoing with triannual questionnaires for follow-up on fracture, fall, cardiovascular events and death. A sub-study of Sleep study was done 2003 and 2009. There is a plan to start Visit 4 in 2014.
