KOL Breakfast: A New Class of Glx Targeted Anti-Depressants
Please join us for a KOL breakfast on May 9th in NYC to discuss a new class of Glx targeted antidepressants.
Traditional Serotonin-raising antidepressants all carry an FDA-mandated warning regarding increased risk of suicide. Raising Glx in the brain is known to reduce depressive and suicidal ideation. The only FDA-approved treatment today that reduces Glx is electroconvulsive therapy. The new generation of Glx antidepressants, including ketamine and d-cycloserine based drugs has the potential to achieve the benefits of ECT without its severe side effects. These treatments are now being developed under FDA FAST TRACK and SPECIAL PROTOCOL AGREEMENT.
Please join us for a discussion of these treatments in depression and suicidality as well as Glx as a biomarker for depression. See additional details on the event and NeuroRx below.
