Are you an adult with a diagnosis of autism and have (or had) symptoms of anxiety?


If so, it may be suitable for you to take part in a study called STRATA (SerTRaline for AnxieTy in adults with Autism).

STRATA aims to find out whether the medication sertraline is an effective treatment for anxiety in adults with a diagnosis of autism.

They aim to enrol 306 autistic adults (aged ≥18 years, without a learning disability or with a mild learning disability) to this study, and would like you to consider taking part.

This is a randomised study; participants have a 50% chance of receiving active sertraline capsules, and a 50% chance of receiving placebo (inactive) capsules.
