Texas A&M Health and Wave Neuroscience recently announced the second phase of their post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) clinical trial today. This phase intends to investigate the safety and efficacy of Magnetic EEG-guided Resonance Therapy in a randomized clinical trial for post-traumatic stress disorder, with or without traumatic brain injuries.
Lead doctor Kenneth Ramos, MD, Ph.D., noted “results of the initial trial suggested that MeRT therapy may be effective for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder,” Ramos said. “This second phase of the investigation has been designed to further evaluate the efficacy and safety of MeRT in a larger and more diverse group of patients. Our goal is to find ways to improve the quality of life for patients afflicted with this devastating condition.”
Neuroscience & PTSD Trials
Joining the Texas A&M study is Wave Neuroscience, an innovative company focused on brain health. Wave Neuroscience is a pioneer in offering treatments that have shown promise in optimizing brain performance. The company has been able to help individuals living with not just PTSD, but also traumatic brain injuries, depression, and substance abuse.
The first phase of the trial involved 74 participants, located in Tampa, Florida, and San Diego, California. For the second phase, adults aged 18-65 may be eligible to participate if they have experienced symptoms of PTSD for at least six months and meet other eligibility criteria. Enrollment is also open to participants who live with PTSD combined with persistent post-concussive symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury.
