INTRODUCTION: Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is widely regarded as a safe and effective first-line treatment for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); however, no comparative studies have been conducted to examine the treatment outcomes in an Asian population. The aim of the present trial is to investigate the efficacy of CPT (individual format) as a treatment for PTSD in a population of Japanese patients. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: A 16-week, single-centre, assessor-masked, randomised, parallel-group superiority trial has been designed to compare the efficacy of CPT in conjunction with treatment as usual (mostly pharmacotherapy and clinical monitoring) versus treatment as usual alone...

British Journal of Psychiatry, 156, 565-568.] suggested that it is an uncommon phenomenon despite Dolan's recent finding [Dolan, Lacey, & Evans (1990). British Journal of Psychiatry, 157, 523-528.] that there were elevated Eating Attitudes Test (EAT) scores in a sample of young Asian adults compared with Caucasians. We report a case of an Asian girl with a rare inborn error of metabolism and an eating disorder...
