Pilot Study Of Primary And Secondary Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Among Survivors Of Childhood Cancer


1. This study will investigate the feasibility of assessing symptoms of developmental ADHD
and "secondary ADHD" (S-ADHD) among adolescent survivors of childhood cancer using a
structured diagnostic clinical interview procedure. (S-ADHD describes an acquired
clinical presentation that is consistent with the diagnostic criteria of ADHD).

2. This study will provide preliminary estimates of the rate of occurrence of ADHD/S-ADHD
among adolescent survivors of childhood cancer as compared to the prevalence of
developmental ADHD in the general population.

3. The study will examine the relationship between ADHD/S-ADHD symptoms and laboratory
measures traditionally used to assess specific components of attention (e.g., CPT) in
survivors of childhood cancer.

4. The study will examine the relationship between ADHD/S-ADHD symptoms and smoking
(including intentions, behaviors, and motivators) among adolescent survivors of
childhood cancer.
