Common Anesthetic Discovered to be Providing Instant Relief to Depression Sufferers
Scientists have proposed that a common anesthetic has been discovered to be providing relief to the people affected by depression. It has been reported that the anesthetic has been able to yield significant results during its first clinical trials in Australia.
It has been recovered that Ketamine, which is also a key ingredient in a recreational drug dubbed Special K, proved to bring about instant easement to patients suffering from clinical depression. Rather, the changes were observable within hours or maximum after a day.
University of NSW researcher Prof Colleen Loo asserted that they have already carried out the first part of trial of the drug in Australia. It has been acknowledged that the drug was already given intravenously to patients suffering from moderate or severe clinical depression.
During the initial trials only a handful of the patients were included. The researchers of the trial affirmed that they wish to include more number of patients, at least up to 40 patients as a part of ongoing trial. During the trial, patients will be sub-divided into groups, out of which one will be given ketamine and the other will be kept on a placebo.
The drug has already been approved to be used as anesthesia, sedation, and pain relief.
