Tourette Syndrome Study

Now open in Savannah, GA

Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder that appears in the form of motor or vocal tics. Diagnosing TS can be difficult because it often exists with other mental, behavioral, or developmental conditions, such as ADHD and OCD. The severity of tics typically decreases as children grow into adulthood, but some people may have persistent and severe tics their entire lives.

The causes of TS are unknown and there are limited therapies available to manage tics. Meridian is conducting a clinical research study for an investigational medication for children aged 6 to 17 with TS.

Eligible participants…

  • Must be age 6 to 17
  • Must weigh at least 39.6 lbs
  • Must exhibit both motor and vocal tics
  • May receive compensation for time and travel
  • Do not need insurance to join this study
