Stanford Trial Overview
In 2008, a randomized-controlled clinical trial treating panic disorder was published. At one year following the 28-day treatment period, 68% of subjects were panic-free and 93% had significant reductions in panic symptoms. The study also documented high treatment compliance rates, positive changes in respiratory physiology, and strong evidence for safety and tolerability.
Multi-Center Trial Overview
A multi-center clinical trial led by David Tolin, PhD, Director of Anxiety Disorder Center, The Institute of Living and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine, was conducted at four leading non-academic anxiety treatment centers. With multiple clinical sites and treating clinicians, a larger, more diverse sample size and a broader range of co-morbid conditions, this study demonstrated that 79% of patients were panic-free and 82% had significant panic symptom reductions at 12-months. Additionally, strong adherence and safety results were replicated from an earlier study.
Highmark Health Program Overview
A Quality Improvement Program conducted at Allegheny Health Network with Highmark Health provided Freespira treatment for panic, tracking clinical and health cost outcomes. 81% of subjects were panic free one year post-treatment and 94% reported significant panic symptom reductions. In addition to the clinical improvement, all-source medical spending was reduced by 50% in the year following Freespira treatment, including 53% reduction in pharmacy costs and 64% reduction in Emergency Department costs.
