Gene therapy and epigenetic treatment[edit]

Gene therapy seems to be a method of interest in management of PTSD. Perhaps worth a mention ? Gene therapy of TPH1 and TPH2 could potentially be done (but no such treatments exist yet).

There also seem to be a lot of other genes that can be modified using gene therapy (but again, no such treatments exist yet). Examples are PFBP5 and FKBP5

There also seems to be an epigenetic treatment available, that targets HDAC2, see http://www.cell.com/abstract/S0092-8674(13)01589-4 and http://www.medicaldaily.com/genetic-therapy-deletes-traumatic-memories-could-aid-ptsd-treatment-267279
