Here’s the headline that I read today:
No. No. No. A thousand times no.
This article is based on a study of an MS drug in MICE published in Nature Neuroscience. I have two biology degrees and a PhD in epidemiology and I can’t understand the abstract. The headline seems to be derived from a chat with the paper’s author:
The possibility that the drug may treat PTSD is “one thing that comes to mind,” Spiegel said in a telephone interview. “That is a potential implication.”
Do not put faith in mouse studies. Ever.
