  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Limitations of our trial include stringent enrollment criteria due to concerns about ketamine’s psychoactive effects and abuse liability. A proportion of screened patients (17.2%) refused or were unable to tolerate psychotropic washout.
