07:00 EST 17th January 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Changes in Salivary Cortisol During Psychotherapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Pilot Study in 30 Veterans."

Convergent evidence suggests that the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is disrupted in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and that HPA axis normalization may be associated with symptom improvement. Thus, the current study was designed to test the association between HPA axis reactivity and treatment response in psychotherapy for PTSD.
