ADPOTED PROJECT: Comparing pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): systematic review and network meta-analysis

Chief Investigator:  Professor Samuele Cortese – University of Southampton

Project Team Members: Professor Andrea Cipriani – University of Oxford, Associate Professor Corentin Gosling – University of Paris Nanterre, France, Dr Luis Faraht – University of São Paulo, Brazil / Yale University Child Study Center, USA, Dr Cinzia Del Giovane – University of Modena and Reggio, Italy

Background:

It is currently unclear how different treatment options for preschool children with ADHD compare with each other in terms of efficacy and safety. We will use data from available randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and apply an advanced and innovative statistical approach (network meta-analysis) to answer this question. The project started in 2022.

Expected outcomes:

We will understand how pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions (including behaviour intervention, family-based systematic approaches and dietetic interventions) compare with each other in terms of their beneficial effects on ADHD symptoms and safety.

Project Status: Ongoing.
