Your valuable research in Expert Opinion on Drug Discovery - The discovery and development of RNA-based therapeutics

About the special issue

The field of psychiatry therapeutics has pivoted in the last 2-3 years towards so called ""rapid acting antidepressants"" (RAADs). The first FDA approved RAAD is esketamine and just recently, our Editor-in-Chief Professor Roger S. McIntyre has led the international guidelines for esketamine and ketamine.

In addition, there are a disparate assortment of ""psychedelics"" that are being developed. Although we certainly welcome potentially innovative and lifesaving treatments for persons with mental disorders, we also need to have a measured and empirically guided understanding of safety.

This special focus issue therefore aims to provide a broad-ranging overview of the safety of these exciting new treatments for persons with mental disorders. We welcome contributions in the form of reviews, perspectives, editorials, specific drug evaluations and original research.
