COSTA MESA, Calif., May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CNS Response, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CNSO) announced today that Dr. Daniel Hoffman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, CNS Response, Dr. Henry Harbin, M.D., Board Member, CNS Response and Dr. James Greenblatt, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Walden Behavioral Care Inpatient Psychiatry and Eating Disorder Programs, will deliver a presentation on Referenced EEG-guided personalized medicine and its potential for treating patients with behavioral disorders at the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare 38th National Council Conference.
The presentation, titled "Personalized Medicine in Psychiatry: Using EEG-Guided Medication Decisions," will offer an overview of the science and current results of using Quantitative EEG's to predict psychotropic medication responses. Specific research from CNS Response's Referenced EEG (rEEG) and Aspect Medical's BRITE study will be reviewed, including the use of rEEG for treatment refractory Eating Disorder Patients.
rEEG uses traditional electroencephalography (EEG) in conjunction with a normative database and a proprietary clinical (symptomatic) database to identify medication classes most likely to be needed and medications within those classes with the most probable treatment potential for each patient. The BRITE study predicts whether the SSRI's tested will alter certain EEG variables in order to predict a positive response within a few days of taking the medication. Implications for the future practice of psychiatry, including efficiency, cost savings, and effectiveness in treatment resistant populations, will be discussed.
The presentation, which is part of the Emerging Treatment Technologies track, will occur on Friday, May 2, 2008 from 3:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., EDT. The 38th National Council Conference is taking place in Boston, MA, at the Marriott Copley Place from May 1-3, 2008.
