Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) as a system to monitor clinical outcomes in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (severe abnormalities in the development of many basic psychological functions that are not normal for any stage in development. These abnormalities are manifested in sustained social impairment, speech abnormalities, and peculiar motor movements).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Autism Spectrum Disorder Other: No Intervention

Detailed Description:
This is an observational (study in which participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes) and prospective (study following participants forward in time) study to determine JAKE in children and adults with ASD. The study will be conducted in 2 stages and each stage consists of 2 parts: Screening Phase (14 days), data collection Phase (Stage 1: 1 week and Stage 2: 4 weeks) and, stage 2 has follow-up Phase (up to 4 weeks post-data collection). The maximum study duration for each participant will not exceed 1 week for stage 1 and 8 weeks for stage 2. Primarily, the usability of JAKE as a system to monitor clinical outcomes in ASD will be assessed. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Participants (6-9 years)
Participants with ASD aged 6 to 9 years will be observed for the usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) personal healthcare record (pHR) and biosensors in stage 1 and stage 2 (at laboratory sites).
Other: No Intervention
The usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) as a system to monitor clinical outcomes in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will be observed.

ASD Participants (13-17 years)
Participants with ASD aged 13 to 17 years will be observed for the usability of the JAKE pHR and biosensors in stage 1 and stage 2 (at laboratory sites).
Other: No Intervention
The usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) as a system to monitor clinical outcomes in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will be observed.

ASD Participants (3 or greater than 3 years)
Participants with ASD aged 3 or greater than 3 years will be observed for the usability of the JAKE pHR and biosensors in stage 2 (at clinical sites).
Other: No Intervention
The usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) as a system to monitor clinical outcomes in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will be observed.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Stage 1: Usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) in Measuring Clinical Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) [ Time Frame: Week 1 ]
    The JAKE personal healthcare record (pHR) encompasses various modules for use by clinicians, caregivers, participants and the sponsor. The JAKE is accessible both through a web interface for computers and applications for mobile devices. The modules are medical/developmental history, symptom tracker, journal/ASD events, treatment tracker, dashboard, healthvault, research data warehouse and workbench. Results of several parent and clinician questionnaires will be compared with the findings of the mentis symptom tracker and biosensors. An exit survey will assess overall usability of the system.

  2. Stage 2: Usability of the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE) in Measuring Clinical Symptoms of ASD [ Time Frame: Week 4 ]
    The JAKE personal healthcare record (pHR) encompasses various modules for use by clinicians, caregivers, participants and the sponsor. The JAKE is accessible both through a web interface for computers and applications for mobile devices. The modules are Medical/Developmental History, Symptom Tracker, Journal/ASD events, Treatment Tracker, Dashboard, HealthVault, Research Data Warehouse and Workbench. Results of several parent and clinician questionnaires will be compared with the findings of the mentis symptom tracker and biosensors. An exit survey will assess overall usability of the system.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Utility of JAKE Symptom Tracker in Measuring Clinical Symptoms of ASD [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 1 in Stage 1, and Baseline and Week 4 in Stage 2 ]
    The JAKE Symptom Tracker is a series of 97 questions related to the core and associated symptoms of ASD. Questions are answered on two 4-point scales, either frequency and intensity, frequency and context, or quality and context.

  2. Correlation Between Key Biosensors and ASD Symptoms [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 1 in Stage 1, and Baseline and Week 4 in Stage 2 ]
    The utility of the biosensors will be determined by measuring the associations between the biosensors and the ASD symptoms (response to tasks and stimuli in lab, the symptom tracker, and the event tracker).

  3. Ease of use and Utility of JAKE for use in Prospective Clinical Trials [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 1 in Stage 1, and Baseline and Week 4 in Stage 2 ]
    The JAKE personal healthcare record (pHR) encompasses various modules for use by clinicians, caregivers, participants and the sponsor. The JAKE is accessible both through a web interface for computers and applications for mobile devices. The modules are Medical/Developmental History, Symptom Tracker, Journal/ASD events, Treatment Tracker, Dashboard, HealthVault, Research Data Warehouse and Workbench.

  4. Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 1 in Stage 1, and Up to Week 8 in Stage 2 ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. A serious adverse event (SAE) is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.
