Ongoing Studies and Recruitment

POND Research Studies

Within the POND Network, there are many different studies that explore neurodevelopmental disorders in ways that have never been done before. The aim is to increase our understanding of the underlying biology of these neurodevelopmental disorders, how they are similar, different and connected, and how this knowledge can be used to improve clinical and community care.

General recruitment for the POND study is open. Please contact the POND site nearest you for more information.

POND Ontario Clinical Trials Network

The POND clinical trials network is an alliance of several Ontario clinical research centres with expertise in neurodevelopmental disorders. These groups are cooperating in the design and conduct of clinical trials whose goals are to predict and describe the shared biology and response to treatment of children with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as ASD, ADHD, ID, and OCD.

Two clinical trials will be coming soon:

  1. A randomized placebo-controlled trial of ARBaclofen vs. placebo in the treatment of children and adolescents with ASD – “The ARBA” Study
  2. A pilot study of an antioxidant cocktail vs. placebo in the treatment of children and adolescents with Rett syndrome

Please contact the POND site nearest you for more information.
