New Research in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Although Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a common diagnosis there are surprisingly few treatment options approved by the US FDA.
One new treatment pathway being explored is the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor.This study is looking for volunteers with PTSD who are interested in assisting in the evaluation of a new medication engineered to modulate these receptors.
