Keith Conners , Ph.D. , Professor of Medical Psychology , Duke University Medical Center and lead author of the study presented the findings from this pivotal trial.
Findings from this study support previous research suggesting that the d isomer of Ritalin , which contains both the d and l isomers of methylphenidate , is primarily responsible for its clinical effect , said Dr. Conners.The results presented today signify that dexmethylphenidate HCl , which contains only the active d isomer , is a safe and effective treatment for ADHD at half the dose of Ritalin..
One hundred and thirty-two ADHD patients aged 6-17 were randomized to receive dexmethylphenidate HCl , d , l methylphenidate HCl or placebo.Efficacy was evaluated using the SNAP-ADHD rating scale , a standard behavioral assessment tool used in clinical trials.In this analysis , the primary outcome was measured by the change from baseline in teacher SNAP-ADHD scale scores at the conclusion of the 4-week study compared to placebo.
