Contrary to what Spencer et al. argue, we believe this high-quality study should be taken as model for future studies in such a population. Another good description of medication status is given by Jucaite et al. (3): “Nine of the 12 boys were drug naive (in other words, they had not previously been treated with any psychostimulants).” With respect to this study, Spencer et al. are incorrect when interpreting an elevated mean dopamine transporter binding in ADHD as compared with control subjects: both Table 1 and Figure 3 indicate no statistically significant between-group differences. Conversely, the sample selection of la Fougère et al. (4) is poorly described, and in fact there is no mention at all that the subjects were “drug-naive” or “never treated,” as Spencer et al. speculate. The criticisms the authors raise are thus not corroborated by the literature. However, we take this opportunity to fully highlight the true methodological limitations of our study: it had a small sample size; the causality of the regression findings could not be tested in cross-sectional designs; the study had limited statistical power for meta-regression analysis; and it used an artificial comparison across several radiotracers, each with differential dopamine transporter sensitivity. We acknowledge that because of these limitations the results of our study should be considered preliminary and subject to verification in well-designed large-scale longitudinal investigations of drug naive ADHD subjects.
