Hi Scott,

I agree, it would seem that intranasal administration would be more effective. Perhaps the lozenges they are using contain a larger dose of ketamine or the rate of absorption makes a difference.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals has several intranasal esketamine trials going on that I'm looking into.
