This called to mind previous evidence for an infectious contribution of BDV-1 to mental disorders. Pilot open trials suggested that BDV-1 infected depressed patients benefitted from antiviral therapy with a licensed drug (amantadine) which also tested sensitive in vitro. Here, we designed a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial (RCT) which cross-lin...

We ask, on the one hand, whether people were engaged with the civil rights issues raised by Black Lives Matter and, on the other hand, w...

Therefore, there is a lack of an evidence-base to inform interventions or educational practice.
