Research Description

"A One-Year, Open-Label, Flexible-Dosage Study to Evaluate the Safety and Continued Efficacy of Modafinil in Children and Adolescents with Excessive Sleepiness Associated with Narcolepsy or Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome"; Cephalon; J. Owens, PI
This study examines the ongoing efficacy and safety of modafinil in treating residual daytime sleepiness in children 6-17 years old with either narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea.

"The Effect of a Once Daily Evening Dose of Atomoxetine (ATX) on ADHD-Related Insomnia in Children and Adolescents"; Eli Lilly; J. Owens, PI
This single site, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled parallel group design study is designed to directly examine the efficacy of a single daily dose of atomoxetine taken in the morning in alleviating sleep initiation insomnia in children with ADHD. Subjects are children aged 6 through 17 years with DSM-IV criteria-defined ADHD and sleep initiation insomnia. Primary outcome measures are sleep parameters, specifically mean sleep onset latency (time of onset to persistent sleep), as measured by actigraphy/sleep diary, and parent and child-reported evening settling difficulties, as measured on the evening subscale items of the parent and child versions of the DPREMB-R. Secondary outcome measures include: additional actigraphic sleep parameters (night wakings, sleep duration, and sleep efficiency), daytime sleepiness (Pediatric Daytime Sleepiness Scale, sleepiness visual analogue scale (VAS), and morning behaviors on the DPREMB-R); ADHD symptom improvement (ADHD-RS, parent and teacher versions; provider-completed CGI); a neurocognitive measure of attention and impulsivity (CPT); executive functions (Brown ADD Scale for Children) and functional outcomes/quality of life (CHQ).

"School Refusal in Patients with Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome"; J. Owens, PI
The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between delayed sleep phase syndrome and school refusal in children and adolescents. The first objective is to examine the prevalence of school refusal in older children and adolescents with delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS). The study will also look at other variables that may influence school refusal in these cases, including family structure, socioeconomic status, and co-morbid psychiatric disorders.

"The Use of Pharmacotherapy to Treat Pediatric Insomnia in Hospitalized Patients"; J. Owens, Co-PI
The aims of this multi-site study are:
  1. To determine the percentage of hospitalized children who receive medication for sleep disturbances in three pediatric hospitals.
    As this is an exploratory study, we do not know what percent of children receive medications to address sleep disturbances while in the hospital. However, it is likely that the percent of children will vary by medical institution, especially given the diverse patient populations served by different institutions.

  2. To determine what medications are being prescribed and administered for sleep difficulties in hospitalized children.
    We expect to find that there is a wide range of medications used to address the sleep complaints of hospitalized children.

  3. To examine the medical and demographic variables related to medications used for sleep difficulties in pediatric hospitals.
    We expect that multiple medical and demographic variables will be related to the usage of sleep medications. These include, but are not limited to:
    a) Medical versus surgical patients;
    b) Patient diagnosis at admission and discharge;
    c) Medical institution and attending/prescribing physician;
    d) Length of stay;
    e) Age of child;
    f) Other medications a child is currently taking.

"The Prevalence of Sleep Disturbances in Hospitalized Pediatric Patients"; J. Owens, PI
This is a survey study designed to investigate the prevalence of sleep disturbances in pediatric hospital inpatients. Subjects are a convenience sample of hospitalized patients between the ages of 3 and 12 years, who have spent at least one night in a non-intensive care unit at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Parents are asked to complete a modified version of the Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ) regarding their child's at home and current (in hospital) sleeping habits, occurring during sleep and night wakings, sleep-disordered breathing, parasomnias, and morning waking/daytime sleepiness. Baseline demographic data, including age, gender, race, and socioeconomic status (SES), and information regarding admission diagnosis, current medications, and chronic medical conditions will also be collected by the research assistant from the hospital inpatient chart.

"The Impact of Work Hour Regulations on Sleep Amounts and Sleep Practices, Self-Reported Sleepiness, Mood, and Attitudes among Pediatric Residents", J. Owens, PI
In this study, we propose to investigate the impact of work hour regulations on objectively measured sleep amounts, self-reported sleep practices, subjectively rated daytime sleepiness and mood, and the perceived effects on personal and professional functioning in a group of pediatric residents at a children's teaching hospital. Prospective participants will be recruited from the 3-year Brown University Pediatrics residency program. After collection of basic demographic data and pertinent medical history including current medications, all subjects will be asked to complete a questionnaire assessing sleep history and sleep habits, general attitudes about sleep and fatigue and the perceived effects of sleep loss during residency on personal and professional functioning, and personal use of countermeasures to address fatigue (Sleep History Form and Residency Questionnaire). In addition, they will be asked to complete questionnaires assessing daytime sleepiness (Epworth Sleepiness Scale) and mood (Profile of Mood States, POMS) pertaining to the preceding month at two points; at the conclusion of a 4-week heavy night call rotation; following a night on-call; and at the end of a 4-week rotation of light night call following a non-call night. Sleep duration will be documented by one week sleep/activity diaries and objective activity monitoring before each test session.
