An evaluation of "informed consent" with volunteer prisoner subjects. (1/237)

"Informed consent" sets a goal for investigators experimenting with human subjects, but little is known about how to achieve or evaluate it in an experiment. In a 3-year, double-blind study with incarcerated men, we attempted to provide a "free and informed consent" and evaluated our efforts with an unannounced questionnaire administered to subjects after they completed the experiment. At that time, approximately two-thirds had sufficient information for an informed consent, but only one-third was well informed about all key aspects of the experiment and one-third was insufficiently informed to give an informed consent. We found that institution- or study-based coercion was minimal in our experiment. From our evaluation of the questionnaire and experience at the study institution, we conclude that an experiment with human subjects should be designed to include an ongoing evaluation of informed consent, and active attempts should be made to avoid or minimize coercive inducements. Experiments with significant risk, which require a long duration and/or large sample size relative to the institution's population, should probably not be performed on prisoner subjects. The experimenter should be independent of the penal institution's power structure. Presenting and explaining a consent form to volunteers on one occasion is probably an in adequate procedure for obtaining and maintaining an informed consent.  (+info)

Randomisation and resource allocation: a missed opportunity for evaluating health care and social interventions. (2/237)

Equipoise is widely regarded to be an essential prerequisite for the ethical conduct of a randomised controlled trial. There are some circumstances however, under which it is acceptable to conduct a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in the absence of equipoise. Limited access to the preferred intervention is one such circumstance. In this paper we present an example of a randomised trial in which access to the preferred intervention, preschool education, was severely limited by resource constraints. The ethical issues that arise when conducting randomised trials in health care are considered in the context of trials of social interventions. In health, education and social welfare, effective interventions are frequently limited due to budgetary constraints. Explicit acknowledgement of the need to ration interventions, and the use of random allocation to do this even in the absence of equipoise, would facilitate learning more about the effects of these interventions.  (+info)

Extending the boundaries of the Declaration of Helsinki: a case study of an unethical experiment in a non-medical setting. (3/237)

To examine the ethical issues involved in governmental decisions with potential health risks, we review the history of the decision to raise the interurban speed limit in Israel in light of its impact on road death and injury. In 1993, the Israeli Ministry of Transportation initiated an "experiment" to raise the interurban speed limit from 90 to 100 kph. The "experiment" did not include a protocol and did not specify cut-off points for early termination in the case of adverse results. After the raise in the speed limit, the death toll on interurban roads rose as a result of a sudden increase in speeds and case fatality rates. The committee's decision is a case study in unfettered human experimentation and public health risks when the setting is non-medical and lacks a defined ethical framework. The case study states the case for extending Helsinki type safeguards to experimentation in non-medical settings.  (+info)

Ethics that exclude: the role of ethics committees in lesbian and gay health research in South Africa. (4/237)

Prevailing state and institutional ideologies regarding race/ethnicity, gender, and sexuality help to shape, and are influenced by, research priorities. Research ethics committees perform a gatekeeper role in this process. In this commentary, we describe efforts to obtain approval from the ethics committee of a large medical institution for research into the treatment of homosexual persons by health professionals in the South African military during the apartheid era. The committee questioned the "scientific validity" of the study, viewing it as having a "political" rather than a "scientific" purpose. They objected to the framing of the research topic within a human rights discourse and appeared to be concerned that the research might lead to action against health professionals who committed human rights abuses against lesbians and gay men during apartheid. The process illustrates the ways in which heterosexism, and concerns to protect the practice of health professionals from scrutiny, may influence the decisions of ethics committees. Ethics that exclude research on lesbian and gay health cannot be in the public interest. Ethics committees must be challenged to examine the ways in which institutionalized ideologies influence their decision making.  (+info)

Covert video surveillance continues to provoke debate. (5/237)

When the editor invites comment on a response to an analysis of a criticism of a protocol already defended by the author in this journal, the issue is clearly contentious. I will comment briefly on Thomas's paper in this issue of the journal, and look at points of agreement as well as dissent.  (+info)

Covert video surveillance -- a response to Professor Southall and Dr. Samuels. (6/237)

In their reply to my recent paper on Munchausen's syndrome by proxy, Professor Southall and Dr. Samuels concede that some things may be learned from my observations. They do not attend to the main argument of the paper, however, that the proportion of research interest in their use of covert video surveillance merits consideration of the research protocol by an independent research ethics committee. It will not do simply to assert that the use of this technology for the purposes outlined in their accounts is not research. I formulated arguments based on facts divulged in those published accounts for regarding their work as containing a considerable proportion of research activity. Unfortunately their reply did not address these arguments. Until such points are adequately answered the protection of patients calls for satisfactory judgments to be made on certain important issues which any research ethics committee would be obliged to consider in an evaluation of their activities. I suggest that some of these features will create more difficulties for approval of such a protocol than others.  (+info)

Human facial expressions as adaptations: Evolutionary questions in facial expression research. (8/237)

The importance of the face in social interaction and social intelligence is widely recognized in anthropology. Yet the adaptive functions of human facial expression remain largely unknown. An evolutionary model of human facial expression as behavioral adaptation can be constructed, given the current knowledge of the phenotypic variation, ecological contexts, and fitness consequences of facial behavior. Studies of facial expression are available, but results are not typically framed in an evolutionary perspective. This review identifies the relevant physical phenomena of facial expression and integrates the study of this behavior with the anthropological study of communication and sociality in general. Anthropological issues with relevance to the evolutionary study of facial expression include: facial expressions as coordinated, stereotyped behavioral phenotypes, the unique contexts and functions of different facial expressions, the relationship of facial expression to speech, the value of facial expressions as signals, and the relationship of facial expression to social intelligence in humans and in nonhuman primates. Human smiling is used as an example of adaptation, and testable hypotheses concerning the human smile, as well as other expressions, are proposed.  (+info)

On July 12, 1974, the National Research Act (Pub. L. 93-348) was signed into law, thereby creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. One of the charges to the Commission was to identify the basic ethical principles that should underlie the conduct of biomedical and behavioral research involving human subjects and to develop guidelines which should be followed to assure that such research is conducted in accordance with those principles. In carrying out the above, the Commission was directed to consider: (a) the boundaries between biomedical and behavioral research and the accepted and routine practice of medicine, (b) the role of assessment of risk-benefit criteria in the determination of the appropriateness of research involving human subjects, (c) appropriate guidelines for the selection of human subjects for participation in such research and (d) the nature and definition of informed consent in various research settings ...

Since its inception, eye tracking has been employed by cognitive scientists to study reading, learning, attention, and neurology; by marketers to examine the effectiveness of ad and package designs; and by human factors engineers to guide automotive and airplane cockpit design. These and other disciplines have had great success leveraging eye tracking as a behavioral research method and to inform the design of communications and interactions. Recently, as eye tracking technology has become more affordable and accessible, academics, research suppliers, and eye tracking equipment makers have been experimenting with applying eye tracking to behavioral research in new domains.. On the one hand, it makes intuitive sense that knowing what people look at (or dont look at) on a webpage would be useful in assessing the usability and effectiveness of that page. However, as is the case with many qualitative research methods, it has proven difficult to completely validate this assumption. Even if the ...

In qualitative research, the researcher is the primary data collection instrument. Qualitative research involves data collected from participant observations, interviews, questionnaires, phone calls, focus groups etc. Interviewing, focus groups, and participant observation are common modes of qualitative data gathering.[4] Interviews are used in most types of qualitative research. Participant observation is a method particularly employed by ethnographers in the anthropological tradition.[4] It is used to learn about the naturally occurring routines, interactions and practices of a particular group of people in their social environments, and so to understand their culture.[4] When a researcher becomes a part of the participants in the situation under observation, it is called a participant observer. Furthermore, qualitative data can be used to strengthen quantitative research designs in general and intervention research designs (i.e., experimental, quasi-experimental) in particular.[7] For ...

My concern is that the combination of the new definition of clinical trial and the revisions to the common rule make it very difficult for behavioral researchers to determine whether research of theirs that has not been previously classified as a clinical trial will be classified as one going forward. Depending on what one reads, it appears either that almost all nonclinical behavioral research will be treated as clinical trials going forward (because they record behavioral responses), or that the new regulations are being interpreted somewhat more narrowly (and with more of a conventionally clinical focus). NIHs new guidance on these changes is currently quite confusing, although I appreciate that making these determinations is very difficult given the breadth of the research supported by NIH..

AMHERST, Mass. - The National Institutes of Health announced today that microbiologist Sloan Siegrist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a five-year, $2.3 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) New Innovator Award, which supports "unusually innovative research from early career investigators," to study the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB).. NIH says that its "high risk, high reward" Directors Awards were created "to accelerate the pace of biomedical discoveries by supporting exceptionally creative scientists" and to "support unconventional approaches to major challenges in biomedical and behavioral research.". One such major challenge in biomedical research, Siegrist says, is the long-standing problem of TB treatment. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infects one-third of the worlds population and kills an estimated 1.5 million people each year. While antibiotics can rapidly kill Mtb in a laboratory dish, it takes at least six months of treatment to cure a ...
Epidemiologic and physiologic research on sedentary behavior suggests that there are novel health consequences of prolonged sitting time, which appear to be independent of those attributable to lack of leisure-time physical activity," commented Neville Owen, PhD, Head of Behavioural Epidemiology at the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Melbourne, Australia. "However, behavioral research that could lead to effective interventions for influencing sedentary behaviors is less developed, especially so for adults. The purpose of this theme issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine is to propose a set of perspectives on too much sitting that can guide future research. As the theme papers demonstrate, recent epidemiologic evidence (supported by physiologic studies) is consistent in identifying sedentary behavior as a distinct health risk. However, to build evidence-based approaches for addressing sedentary behavior and health, there is the need for research to develop new measurement ...

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While many widely-used, empirically-supported alcohol treatments, including motivational interviewing, show promise in reducing alcohol use behaviors, MI has much more equivocal results down the developmental trajectory. Meaning, while MI is one of the few alcohol treatments that shows promise with youth, attention is needed to understand how to strengthen alcohol treatment outcomes for this age group. In line with NIAAA PAR-14-051, one route to improving treatment outcomes for youth is through using ...translational research [to] identify potential neurobiological...processes that....mediate the direct link between specific active ingredients and alcohol use treatment outcomes. We are therefore proposing to use a cutting-edge translational approach to bridge the fields of basic biological and behavioral research.

PNA Innovations recently received a grant for $540,000 from the NIH SBIR program to develop a new class of fluorescent in situ hybridization probes for telomere analysis. The technology is based on work done in the laboratories of Bruce Armitage (Carnegie Mellon University) and Patty Opresko (University of Pittsburgh) and was funded under the NIHs "Lab to Marketplace: Tools for Biomedical and Behavioral Research" initiative. The probes will be based on gammaPNA, an analogue of peptide nucleic acid that exhibits superior affinity and solubility. The higher affinity of γPNA allows shorter "miniprobes" to be used. The ability to hybridize shorter probes means that more probes can hybridize to a given telomere, resulting in brighter fluorescence. This will significantly improve the analysis of critically short telomeres, which are correlated with a variety of aging-related diseases, cancer and other conditions. The miniprobes will be synthesized at PNA Innovations Inc, then tested at Carnegie ...
When looking at two identical objects moving toward each other on a two-dimensional visual display, two different events can be perceived: the objects can either be seen to bounce off each other, or else to stream through one another. Previous research has shown that the large bias normally seen toward the streaming percept can be modulated by the presentation of an auditory event at the moment of coincidence. However, previous behavioral research on this crossmodal effect has always relied on subjective report. In the present experiment, we used a novel experimental design to provide a more objective/implicit measure of the effect of an auditory cue on visual motion perception. In our study, two disks moved toward each other, with the point of coincidence hidden behind an occluder. When emerging from behind the occluder, the disks (one red, the other blue) could either follow the same trajectory (streaming) or else move in the opposite direction (bouncing). Participants made speeded discrimination

De Grey initially highlights the cost of coping with aging in the US is the United States of America. . The success of constraining infectious diseases has allowed more and more people to live beyond 65. But that means more and more money will be needed to cope with chronic diseases if current trends continue. But only 3% of the NIH is the National Institute of Health, Bethesda Maryland. It is the primary federal agency for the support and conduct of biomedical and behavioral research. It is also one of the four US special containment units of the CDC. budget is spent on aging!

For many years, industrial engineering activity has been closely identified with incentives. The classical incentive approach stresses the closest possible relationship between pay and rate-of-output performance. As any of you who have administered an incentive system know, you have to take the bitter with the better. There are a number of practical problems or dysfunctions associated with incentives. I shall not stress these, but will try to describe the more fundamental problems. If we are to believe the results of behavioral research, people work for the satisfaction of a number of human needs. Only some of these can be satisfied by money. The most serious indictment of ...

Overview on Spiritual Struggles in Coping In 1997, Pargament published The Psychology of Religion and Coping: Theory, Research, and Practice which documented the power and prevalence of religious and spiritual involvement in the coping process. Since then, considerable psychological research has been conducted on a variety of spiritual problems. One spiritual problem that has received considerable attention is spiritual struggles. Major life stressors affect people not only psychologically, socially, and physically, but spiritually as well. Natural disasters, accidents, illnesses, and other stressful events can threaten or harm people spiritually, triggering spiritual struggles. Spiritual struggles in coping represent efforts to protect or transform peoples relationships with whatever they hold sacred, including their connection to God/Higher Power, their spiritual identity, and their connections to a religious community. Terminology. Much of the research on spiritual struggle is referring to as

Valuations are ubiquitous. We may be for or against genetically modified food; we find some politicians irresponsible; we prefer Beethoven to rock n roll or vice versa; some enjoy bird-watching while others find it boring; and we may think that we have to tighten up on green-house gas emissions. Valuing is pervasive and often we are not even aware that we are valuing. However, many of our valuations are ill grounded and rationally defective. They are frequently based on misinformation, sloppy thinking, prejudice, and are biased in many ways as psychological research shows. For this reason there is widespread agreement among phi-losophers that we need an account of substantive valuational rationality, both for the theory of practical reasoning and for ethics as well. My main object in this paper is to outline such an account and to present a principle that allows a non-technical rational criticism of valuations. Key-words: Practical reasoning, practical rationality, rational valuation, rational desire,

The first aim of this review was to identify the frequency with which receipt, as defined in the BCC framework, is addressed in health intervention research. Only 19.6% of the studies identified from the forward citation search to report on fidelity were found to address receipt, compared with 33% in a recent review on clinical supervision [85]. Amongst the studies identified, 60.6% assessed receipt in relation to understanding (compared to 0-69% in other reviews [10, 14-17]) and 42.4% in relation to performance of skill (39-65% in other reviews [10, 14-17]). Strategies to enhance understanding were present in only 12.1% (0-79% in other reviews [10, 14-17]) and performance of skill in 21.1% of studies (50-69% in other reviews [10, 14-17]). These results suggest that there has been little improvement over time with regards to the frequency with which receipt is addressed in health intervention research and that there is a need to continue to advocate for better quality evaluations that focus and ...
1. Strong supply and demand characteristics - The industrial real estate sector currently benefits from stable, healthy demand and an increasingly constrained supply of high quality space. The national vacancy rate has slowly declined from its 2010 peak to reach 9.1 percent, a level last seen in 2009. Given a rather nominal, but still steady, amount of positive net occupancy, it has fallen by 90 basis points from the first quarter of 2011, when the figure was at 10 percent. Now it is moving toward pre-recession levels of 7.5 percent. Demand has maintained a stable trajectory, marked by eight consecutive quarters of positive net absorption, but at 25.3 million square feet in the first quarter, it remains well below pre-recession levels. However, a spike in demand for "big-box" distribution and logistics space (,400,000 square feet) has re-introduced speculative development in key hub markets where vacancy has decreased significantly. In the meantime, a renewed confidence from corporations has ...

When the United States Congress created the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health, it mandated that the Office develop a standard definition of the field to assess and monitor funding in this area. This definition of health-related behavioral and social sciences research was developed in 1996 in consultation with behavioral and social scientists and science organizations, and benefited from the leadership of OBSSRs founding director,
Dr. Norman B. Anderson. This definition divides behavioral and social sciences research into two sections: Core Areas of Research, and Adjunct Areas of Research. The core areas of research are further divided into basic or fundamental research and applied research. Adjunct areas of behavioral and social sciences research include many types of neurological research and some research on pharmacological interventions--areas that have implications for, and are often influenced by, behavioral research. | Bounded

Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) is an online crowdsourcing service where anonymous online workers complete web-based tasks for small sums of money. The service has attracted attention from experimental psychologists interested in gathering human subject data more efficiently. However, relative to traditional laboratory studies, many aspects of the testing environment are not under the experimenters control. In this paper, we attempt to empirically evaluate the fidelity of the AMT system for use in cognitive behavioral experiments. These types of experiment differ from simple surveys in that they require multiple trials, sustained attention from participants, comprehension of complex instructions, and millisecond accuracy for response recording and stimulus presentation. We replicate a diverse body of tasks from experimental psychology including the Stroop, Switching, Flanker, Simon, Posner Cuing, attentional blink, subliminal priming, and category learning tasks using participants recruited using AMT.
As part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) strategic planning process to update its 2007 strategic plan for fiscal years (FY) 2016-2020, the Office plans to reconsider NIHs definition of behavioral and social sciences (BSSR). In his recent OBSSR Connector blog post, OBSSR Director William Riley explained that the office is Congressionally mandated to "define behavioral and social sciences research to assess and monitor NIH funding." As a consequence, the current definition "resulted in a high level taxonomy of BSSR and delineates basic versus applied behavioral and social sciences research with a range of examples for each." Riley noted that in order to revise the current definition, NIH must acknowledge "that there is no single discipline of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research; instead the field is a multidisciplinary set of sciences." The definition of these sciences "are evidence that behavioral and social sciences cover ...

Chimpanzees are not just charismatic but quite remarkable, long-lived, unique creatures with very robust emotional and cognitive lives, says Gruen. After a tremendous amount of letter writing and news media coverage the government asked the Institute of Medicine to do a study to decide whether or not chimpanzees were needed scientifically in research. Their charge was to determine whether it was scientifically necessary, not whether it was ethically necessary. They determined that it was not scientifically necessary, that there were alternatives in most cases. That report then went to the NIH, where the NIH had a committee that determined what to do about the report. That committee decided that it made very little sense to do biomedical research with chimpanzees, but they may fund behavioral research with chimpanzees. That report - I think it came out in 2012 because in 2013 and 2014 there were no requests for funds.. In the meantime, for many, many years chimpanzees were considered endangered ...

Given the current interest around the gut-brain axis as a primary subject in the start of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinsons disease [39,40], it was evident that we needed to determine the possible modulatory effect of serotonin on crop contraction rate because in mammals it is known to modulate hypothalamic receptors, which control the size of carbohydrate-rich meals [41] and other aspects of ingestive behavior [42]. Thus, possesses a complex serotonergic system featuring all major genes ...

NASTAD Zambia also worked with UNZA to strengthen the curriculum and materials for the University short course in M&E. In addition, NASTAD Zambia worked closely with NAC and Population Council to implement behavioral research related to key populations, specifically, men who have sex with men, injecting drug users, and female sex workers.
Over a century of behavioral research has shown that stress can exert both positive and negative effects on memory. We have explored the idea that the complex effects of stress on learning and memory can be characterized by hormetic- and non-hormetic dose-response functions, in which stress may either stimulate or impair brain memory mechanisms, depending, in part, on the timing and duration of the stress experience. Extensive work has shown that acute stress or corticosteroid administration has a biphasic effect specifically on hippocampus-dependent learning, memory and synaptic plasticity. We suggest that brief stress exerts a rapid enhancement of memory-related functions of the hippocampus, produced by the amygdala-induced activation of hippocampal synaptic plasticity in conjunction with excitatory effects of neuromodulators, including glucocorticoids, norepinephrine, corticotropin-releasing hormone, acetylcholine and dopamine. We propose that the rapid stress-induced activation of the amygdala
There are advantages and limitations of active controls in behavioral research and using cross-validation to solve the problem. The AHRQ report only included studies that used active control groups to control for non-specific effects, which is good. But there can be problems interpreting such studies. For example, in a study on anxiety prominently cited in the review as evidence that TM does not work, Smith (1976) carefully constructed a control group that had received all same the expectation fostering features and procedural details as the TM program and found that both TM and the control group reduced anxiety (26). Does this mean that TM is just a placebo? Not necessarily. TMs reduction of anxiety is cross-validated by studies showing it reduces autonomic correlates of anxiety, such as respiratory rate, skin resistance, and plasma lactate, compared to sitting comfortably with eyes closed as is done in TM practice (27).

I am trained as a developmental and clinical psychologist, and I mentor and train students in both disciplines, and in the intersections of these fields. My research currently focuses on the study of family and close relationships as contexts for risk and protection in development. I approach psychological research and practice from a developmental psychopathology perspective, which is informed by the simultaneous consideration of both competence and psychopathology, and emphasizes developmental processes of risk and resilience in pathways to adaptation or maladaptation. Currently, my program of research comprises four major areas, encompassing both developmental research and the application of this research to prevention/intervention contexts:. Emotion communication and socialization. This area of research includes processes of communicating about emotions in close relationships (i.e., parent-child or romantic relationships), both directly and indirectly.. Example publications:. Loucks, L. A., ...

Much of Schallers psychological research has examined the subtle cognitive processes that contribute to stereotypes and prejudices. One line of research focused on intuitive statistical reasoning processes. This work revealed that people form erroneous stereotypes when they engage in overly simplistic statistical reasoning, but that these erroneous stereotypes are less likely to emerge if people can be trained to engage in a more sophisticated reasoning process (analogous to a statistical analysis of covariance).[2] Another line of research focused on communication processes as they relate to the emergence and change of group stereotypes.[3][4] Additional lines of research, informed by the adaptationist reasoning characteristic of evolutionary psychology, focused on the ways in which specific kinds of perceived threats (e.g., threat of interpersonal violence), and contextual cues connoting vulnerability to those threats (e.g., ambient darkness), trigger specific kinds of prejudices against ...
Among destitute adults with mental illness, getting past mind injuries is connected having a and the higher chances of adverse health problems, new information signifies.. Destitute adults with mental illness and past traumatic brain injuries will also be more prone to use emergency departments, report unmet healthcare needs and also have connection with the criminal justice system than individuals with no history, based on research printed today within the Journal of Psychological Research.. This population also experienced an elevated probability of being suicidal or getting formerly attempted suicide, the research stated.. "Though it didnt prove a causal relationship, our research shows that theres a connection between specific mental health diagnoses and traumatic brain injuries," stated Dr. Stephen Hwang, lead author from the study and director from the Center for Urban Health Solutions of St. Michaels Hospital.. "Head injuries are clearly a substantial burden to those who are destitute ...
The results, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), are especially relevant to policymakers involved with information sharing. For example, if communities have common misconceptions about a certain topic - for example, how the Zika virus is spread - policymakers can bust these myths by repeatedly sharing accurate messaging.. "If youre a policymaker trying to annihilate misconceptions, you should identify a piece of information thats relevant, accurate, and, importantly, conceptually related to the misconception," said lead author Alin Coman, assistant professor of psychology and public affairs. "Keep practicing that information. Send repeated messages into the community. If people care about the topic, they are going to talk to one another about it and by spreading the accurate information, psychological research shows, they will likely forget about the misconception.". Coman and his co-authors - Ida Momennejad, a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton; Andra Geana, ...

A 2017 series of articles by researcher Chittaranjan Andrade in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry reviews the last 10 years of research on ketamine, the anesthetic drug that in smaller doses (0.5 mg/kg of body weight) can bring about rapid antidepressant effects. Ketamine is typically delivered intravenously (though it can also be delivered via inhaler, injected under the skin or into muscles, and least effectively by mouth). Ketamine can improve depression in less than an hour, but its effects usually fade within 3 to 5 days. Repeating infusions every few days can extend ketamines efficacy for weeks or months.. Andrade cited a 2016 meta-analysis of nine ketamine studies by T. Kishimoto and colleagues in the journal Psychological Research. The meta-analysis found that compared to placebo, ketamine improved depression beginning 40 minutes after IV administration. Its effects peaked at day 1 and were gone 10-12 days later. Remission rates were better than placebo starting after 80 minutes and ...
