      Hopefully the FDA will fast track NSI-189 and get them help.

      Here is an excerpt for todays article: "Military members with PTSD face double risk for heart disease"

      About 5.2 million adults have PTSD during a given year, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. PSTD has been diagnosed in approximately 11 to 20 percent of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, in as many of 10 percent of Gulf War Veterans about 30 percent of Vietnam Veterans, according to the VA department.

      For the study, researchers recruited 562 middle-aged sets of twins who were part of a Vietnam era registry. Twin studies allow researchers to rule out some genetic and environmental factors that skew the results.

      They found about 23 percent of twins who had been diagnosed with PTSD had heart disease, compared to nearly 9 percent of twins who didn't have PTSD. Heart ailments included heart attacks, hospitalizations for heart-related symptoms, or undergoing a heart procedure.
