PTSD Treatment Project Nears Data Collection Completion for Hydrocortisone Study

The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment project at University College London, one of the research projects currently being supported and funded by The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation, has announced that after testing over 100 volunteers, researchers are now very close to completing the data collection for the study which looks at the effects of the medication, hydrocortisone on the storage of emotional memory in healthy men and women.

This study, lead by Dr Sunjeev Kamboj, is part of a larger programme of experimental work which aims to find new treatments to reduce the impact of distressing memories after a traumatic event and possibly prevent the development of PTSD in those who experience trauma.

Thank you to the volunteers who have been a crucial part of this research.
