      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. The psilocybin study for cancer-related anxiety at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore has been making good progress over the past year. Participants need to have a cancer diagnosis, but they do not have to have advanced-stage cancer and they can be in remission and still enroll in this study if they are experiencing anxiety. To learn more about the study, you can visit their official Web site: www.cancer-insight.org And here is a link to the study's ClinicalTrials.gov listing: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00465595
  2. Hello, I posted here a few years ago to let the members of this forum know about a clinical trial we were conducting on the potential benefits of psilocybin for individuals who had anxiety due to advanced-stage cancer. Next month, our findings paper will be published in a top journal. The outcomes were positive, and we hope to continue this work with a larger group of participants in the coming years. There is another active study taking place at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. More information is available at this link: http://www.cancer-insight.org If you have a general interest in medicinal mushrooms or other plant-based psychedelic medicines, I am happy to share what I know about legal, clinical studies in this emerging field. Kind regards, Alicia
  3. Cancer Anxiety Clinical Study

    NOTE: This study has concluded. Other similar studies are taking place at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and at NYU. Hello, My name is Alicia and I coordinate a clinical trial at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. We are working with participants who have anxiety due to metastatic cancer. We are providing the novel medication psilocybin, which is one of the ingredients in "magic" mushrooms. Here is a brief summary: The study examines the use of psilocybin in a controlled setting to reduce the psychospiritual anxiety of people who have advanced cancer. As a society we spend a great deal of attention treating cancer, but very little treating the human being who is dying of cancer. This study treats the whole human being. It aims to help the patient move towards a “good” death. If we can learn to work more skillfully with dying, we will also learn to take better care of life. This is the first work of this kind with the dying since the early 1970’s. (Principal Investigator: Dr. Charles Grob M.D.) For background and information that goes into more detail about the inclusion/exclusion criteria for the study, you can check out this Web site: http://www.canceranxietystudy.org (keyword: Grob). We are funded by the non-profit Heffter Research Institute. We have one more open spot for this phase of the trial. Thank you for any support you can provide in helping me get the word out. Kind Regards, Alicia Danforth Study Coordinator Office: (310) 222-3175
