The Ketamine 2024 Conference assembles many of the top scientists and clinicians in the field from around the world and is a forum for top researchers and experienced and interested clinicians to learn from each other about the therapeutic use of Ketamine and related compounds for affective disorders. Dr. Javitt will present a keynote talk titled, "Ketamine: the Efficacy is Clear, Approval is Critical, and the Risks Must be Balanced." He will present an overview of the rapid and dramatic efficacy of Ketamine in the treatment of acute suicidality as well as recent science documenting the potential for neurotoxicity with long-term CNS side effects if ketamine is used without appropriate safety controls as a long-term drug.

"HOPE Therapeutics builds upon four decades of scientific discovery related to the role of the brain's NMDA receptor and the effects of ketamine and other NMDA-antagonist drugs in rapidly attenuating symptoms of depression and suicidality. It is an honor for our company to be invited to share a platform with those who have established this field of science and who may forever change the outlook and future path of patients who suffer from suicidal depression and PTSD," said Dr. Javitt.
