Only three of the 40 original participants did not complete the medical portion of the PROMETA Treatment Program.
The most salient result of the PROMETA Treatment Program is participants' reporting of the almost total elimination of cravings for their drug of choice, compared with very high levels of cravings witnessed at the start of the pilot.
Peer-review publication brings additional validation to the PROMETA Treatment Program, and results from the alcohol studies are providing greater clarity for clinicians as to when use of the PROMETA Treatment Program in alcohol dependent patients may be beneficial.
Volpicelli's study was much larger, involving 117 lower-CIWA subjects, and it demonstrated that the PROMETA group had better clinical outcomes and achieved statistical significance during the active treatment period among subjects with a history of alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Although not statistically significant, results also favored higher-CIWA PROMETA subjects, as compared to placebo, in percent days abstinent, craving, percent heavy drinking days, and drinks per day.
The 14-week study, over a 6 week treatment phase and an 8 week follow up phase, was designed to evaluate the impact of PROMETA on percent days abstinent, other use measures and cravings.
