Abstract : This is an updated report for the last funding period. In this period of operations, we have secured IRB and appropriate renewals. Recruitment is ongoing. There was a delay in meeting the anticipated recruitment goals in this past funding period. However, recent successes with new recruitment strategies, expanding collaborative relationships with local and regional resources for veterans will allow us to achieve and meet our targeted enrollment goals in the coming period. In addition, the randomized controlled trials is now exclusively focused on recruiting OEF/OIF returnees, and all can only be randomized to the medication arms of the study. These planned changes will also enhance recruitment in the coming period. Reportable outcomes include peer-reviewed publications, research abstracts, and research training. Archival PET data anlyses are under way and will better contextualize the anticipated findings from this proposal with veterans with and without PTSD.
