Expert: Could Treating Sleep Problems Help With PTSD?

An expert can speak on how treating sleep problems might reduce the potential of PTSD among military personnel. Seth Lederman, MD, co-founder and CEO of Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp., is overseeing the development of TNX-102 SL, an advanced sublingual reformulation of the FDA-approved muscle relaxant cyclobenzaprine, aiming to improve sleep quality and make a meaningful difference in the symptoms experienced by PTSD patients. Tonix’s AtEase Study is a Phase 2 clinical study to evaluate the potential therapeutic benefits of TNX-102 SL for PTSD in members of the military and its veterans.

Treatment of Sleep Apnea Results in Greater Blood Pressure Reduction in Those with Resistant Hypertension

The use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy can help people who have both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and hypertension lower their blood pressure, which in turn could possibly reduce their risk of suffering a deadly heart attack or stroke in the future. However, the data is unclear on the impact of CPAP use in millions of OSA-sufferers who have a resistant form of hypertension that doesn’t significantly improve despite multi-drug therapy. A global research team recently looked at a set of pooled data and determined that untreated OSA may be one reason why resistant hypertension doesn’t respond to traditional therapy, and that CPAP use may yield even greater blood pressure reductions in this difficult to treat population than expected.
