Psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression (large effects) | Roland Griffiths


[Roland]: But to get back to the whole question
about psilocybin and depression, that’s another area that we’re interested in. A group from the UK published this summer
uncontrolled pilot study in, I think, it was 15 volunteers with treatment-resistant depression
in which they gave psilocybin. And they showed large effects and sustained
effects out to at least a couple of months. And so we actually now have a proposal in
front of the FDA as we speak and are going to launch a trial next year to look at treatment
resistant depression as a target. And so in addition to this depression anxiety
syndrome associated with life-threatening illness, we think that that’s a interesting
target and it remains to be seen what happens. [Rhonda]: Yeah, that’s fantastic.
