About CNS Response Inc.
CNS Response (www.cnsresponse.com) provides a unique set of reference data and analytic tools for clinicians and researchers in psychiatry. While treatment for mental disorders has doubled in the last 20 years, it is estimated that 17 million Americans have failed two or more medication therapies for their mental disorders. The Company's Psychiatric EEG Evaluation Registry, or PEER Online, is a new registry and reporting platform that allows medical professionals to exchange treatment outcome data for patients referenced to objective neurophysiology data obtained through a standard electroencephalogram (EEG). Based on the company's original physician-developed database, there are now more than 38,000 outcomes for over 10,000 unique patients in the PEER registry. The objective of PEER Online is to reduce trial and error pharmacotherapy, which is the dominant approach for treatment resistant patients.
