Ketamine is perhaps best known for being a popular recreational drug and a powerful medical anesthetic, but an increasing body of research showed that the compound may also be effective in treating psychiatric disorders such as depression.

The new AJP study is the latest piece of research showing ketamine to be a promising treatment for depression. Esketamine could be an important treatment to bridge the gap that exists because of the delayed effect of most common antidepressants.
This study was a proof-of-concept, phase 2, study for esketamine; it must still go through a phase 3 study before possible FDA approval. In an accompanying editorial published along with the study, reports of abuse (including cases of prescribed ketamine) were noted.
The nasal spray is now going through phase three trials which it has to pass before it can be licensed for treatment. "Protection of the public's health is part of our responsibility as well, and, as physicians, we are responsible for preventing new drug epidemics", said Dr. Robert Freedman, the current editor in chief for the AJP. In addition, to date, clinical ketamine trials have been small, and the researchers note that future studies will need to include a larger pool of participants to validate these early findings.
The study notes that more research is needed to analyze the potential for dependence and substance abuse of the drug before can be approved for use as a depression treatment.
