Can you give us an idea of how many doses of ibogaine and of what  
strength and for the treatment of what doses of what drugs so we can  
have some idea of what we are looking at?

Do you have any baseline studies showing REM?

How long had you been off methadone?

I doubt the studies you are seeking have been done and I doubt if  
done, they have been published.  Too bad, data is always good.
