mushrooms that contain the psychedelic compounds psilocybin and psilocin (Source: Wikipedia) Top News The psychedelic drug in “magic mushrooms” can quickly and effectively help treat anxiety and depression in cancer patients an effect that may last for months two small studies show It worked for Dinah Bazer who endured a terrifying hallucination that rid her of the fear that her ovarian cancer would return And for Estalyn Walcoff who says the drug experience led her to begin a comforting spiritual journey Watch What Else is Making News The work released Thursday is preliminary and experts say more definitive research must be done on the effects of the substance called psilocybin (sih-loh-SY’-bihn) But the record so far shows “very impressive results” said Dr Craig Blinderman who directs the adult palliative care service at the Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital He didn’t participate in the work Psilocybin also called shrooms purple passion and little smoke comes from certain kinds of mushrooms It is illegal in the US and if the federal government approves the treatment it would be administered in clinics by specially trained staff experts say Nobody should try it on their own which would be risky said the leaders of the two studies Dr Stephen Ross of New York University and Roland Griffiths of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Psychedelic drugs have looked promising in the past for treating distress in cancer patients But studies of medical use of psychedelics stopped in the early 1970s after a regulatory crackdown on the drugs following their widespread recreational use It has slowly resumed in recent years Griffiths said it’s not clear whether psilocybin would work outside of cancer patients although he suspects it might work in people facing other terminal conditions Plans are also underway to study it in depression that resists standard treatment he said The new studies published in the Journal of Psychotherapy are small The NYU project which also included psychotherapy covered just 29 patients The Hopkins study had 51 Bazer who lives in New York was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2010 when she was 63 Treatment was successful but then she became anxious about it coming back “I just began to be filled with a terrible dread” she said in an interview “You’re waiting for the other shoe to drop … (The anxiety) was ruining my life” She swallowed a capsule of psilocybin in 2012 in the company of two staff members trained to guide her through the several hours that the drug would affect her brain As she listened to music through headphones her eyes covered with a sleep mask the drug went to work “Suddenly I was in a dark terrifying place lost in space lost in time” she recalled “I had no bearings and I was really really terrified” Then she saw her dread of a cancer recurrence as a black mass in her abdomen and she furiously yelled at it to leave “As soon as that happened the fear was gone” she said “I was just floating in the music … like being carried in a river” Then she felt deep love for her family and friends and sensed their love for her “It felt like I was bathed in God’s love … I’m still an atheist by the way but that really seemed to be the only way to describe it” Researchers said such mystical experiences appeared to play a role in the drug’s therapeutic effect Walcoff 69 a psychotherapist in Rochester New York also entered the NYU study because of her anxiety over a cancer recurrence in her case lymphoma (Most participants had active cancer) Psilocybin “opened me up to pursue meditation and spiritual searching” Walcoff said and as a result of that “I have become reassured and convinced that that phase of my life is over and it’s not going to come back” Most funding for the studies came from the Heffter Research Institute a nonprofit organization that supports studies of psilocybin and other hallucinogens In both studies psilocybin treatment had more effect on anxiety and depression than a placebo did For example by the day after treatment about 80 percent of the treated NYU patients no longer qualified as clinically anxious or depressed by standard measures That compares to about 30 percent for the placebo group That’s a remarkably fast response experts said and it endured for the seven weeks of the comparison The studies took different approaches for formulating a placebo At NYU patients were given niacin which mimics some effects of psilocybin At Hopkins the placebo was a very low dose of psilocybin itself Researchers in both studies eventually gave full psilocybin treatment to the placebo groups and followed all the patients for about six months The beneficial effects appeared to persist over that period But the evidence for that is less strong than for the shorter term because there was no longer any placebo comparison group No severe side effects arose from the treatment Dr William Breitbart chief of the psychiatry service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York who didn’t participate in the studies said they were improvements over prior research on the topic But there were still enough shortcomings to make him cautious about drawing conclusions he said In any case Bazer and Walcoff say the treatment affected more than their cancer anxieties Walcoff said it has helped her work on being less judgmental and more self-accepting Bazer said it made her a more patient driver and more active socially “It really changed everything for me” Bazer said “And I still do not have anxiety about the cancer coming back” For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Nikita Puri | New Delhi | Updated: July 10 2014 11:08 am Aspiring Hams can buy affordable Japanese or Chinese equipment at local stores or build one up using antennae and wireless transceivers (radio transmitter + receiver) Top News Twenty-four years ago Keki Darbary and Vilas Rabade two amateur radio enthusiasts from Pune were fiddling with their Ham radio sets when they accidentally established contact with a Soviet cosmonaut aboard the orbital space station MIR They had a three-minute exchange and a number of their fellow enthusiasts were tuned into this conversation that took place on April 14 1989 Similarly in 1966 when Ved Prakash Sandlas was a student at IIT Kharagpur he made contact with a sailor who was on board a vessel travelling from Honolulu to San Francisco When they exchanged their latitude and longitude coordinates the sailor said to him “In one hour I will be exactly opposite to you on the globe” Sandlas now in Delhi still looks back fondly at the confirmatory letter he has a reminder of a conversation he had with a stranger ages ago Salutations from members of a social network who are tuned into a frequency of their own where your “friend list” thrives on “incidental contacts” established via radio waves The networking platform here is a wireless transceiver (radio transmitter plus receiver) referred to as a Ham radio In his Vigyan Prasar office in Delhi a generous portion of Sandeep Baruah’s workspace is taken up by his Ham radio equipment including a device for Morse Code (yes dots and dashes) “Ham radio is an alternative form of communication The beauty of this communication is that while sitting in your room you can make contact with anyone anywhere across the globe provided he also has the required equipment When disaster strikes and cellphone services don’t work a ham radio continues to function” says Baruah As an example he cites the time he made contact with Cap’n Fatty Goodlander an author and sea gypsy who travels the world in his 38 ft boat Then there was the time he established contact with Port Blair when tsunami had struck helping relay messages between people stranded on the island and their families back home In India there are 15000-20000 Ham radio operators or Hams and a generous portion of this number is based in south India Delhi has about 40-50 active Hams who are “on air” every night at 930pm for a round of “rag chewing” (think group chat) Worldwide there are more than three million hams each of whom has a “call sign” which denotes his identity and country of origin While Baruah is known as VU2MUE to other Hams 77-year-old Gopal Madhavan the president of Bangalore-based Amateur Radio Society of India (ARSI) is VU2GMN Other clubs in the country include National Institute of Amateur Radio (NIAR) Hyderabad and the Coimbatore Amateur Radio Club “Hams believe in the concept of a global community” says Baruah “Since most of the contacts are incidental we give preference to the weakest signal we are receiving — you never know someone may need help or could be transmitting from a remote location Besides audio we can also send across text messages and pictures Then there is the use of Morse Code While most people think of it as a series of dots and dashes Hams such as me see complete words and sentences A Ham based in Russia and I speak only through Morse” The dedication to this hobby is commendable To be a Ham one needs to appear for a test organised by the Wireless Planning Coordination (WPC) wing of the government and get a clearance from the Intelligence Bureau In India the minimum age criterion for this is 12 years Worldwide the lower age limit varies — in the US a 10-year old boy has recently become a licensed Ham Referring to this kind of networking as the “queen of hobbies” 69-year-old retired DRDO and ISRO scientist Sandlas says “Ham radio equipment used to be very difficult to procure but after 1984 Rajiv Gandhi who was a very active Ham allowed import of the equipment free of any duty” But many Hams — like Madhavan — still prefer to build their own sets Cheers to a world tuned to a different frequency This story appeared in print with the headline Now on Air For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Tech
