a groundbreaking new study may have the answer that doctors have been looking for to treat post traumatic stress disorder. according to the report, drug or injection treatment known as sgb reduced symptoms by roughly twice the rate of a placebo.
7:40 am
the experimental procedure was profiled by bill whitaker on "60 minutes" in june. dr. tara narula shows why doctors are optimistic that it could help the roughly eight million american adults who experience ptsd every year. this is like splitting wood or mowing the lawn. you see the results right away. >> reporter: dr. sean mulvaney has treated an estimated 1,000 patients with ptsd including medal of honor recipient dakota meyer. >> we need to help them. >> reporter: mulvaney, who's also a former navy s.e.a.l. spoke to bill whitaker in annapolis this year. he tells us the new sgb body is proof of what he's seen with his own eyes over the past ten years. >> i think it's going to help a lot of people reduce their suffering and the suffering to their families, as well. >> reporter: in the new study, active-duty military members with ptsd were given two injections two weeks apart. some with sgb a placebo. their symptoeed
7:41 am
eit weeks. those who got the sgb injections saw twice as much improvement. how do patients describe the effects of the treatment to you? >> usually there's some form of "i feel relaxed and calm in a way that i haven't for years." >> reporter: the sgb procedure works like this -- a generally harmful anesthetic is injected deep into the neck, affecting a set of nerves known as the stalate ganglion that controls the fight or flight reactions. often amplified in p std patients which can cause trouble sleeping or become easily irritated and angry. the anesthetic appears to block the nerve impulses between the brain and the body. a handful of veterans' hospital across the country already use sgb. it's also given on a limited basis to civilians including first responders, survivors of childhood trauma, and assault victims. >> this entire time, there's this very, very fine gauze that

7:43 am
and the more you work with, it the more successful you'll be. >> reporter: dr. mulvaney told us he's proud to have made a difference as a veteran and as a healer. what does it mean to you as a retired navy s.e.a.l.? >> i've helped a lot of my s.e.a.l. brothers, hundreds of them. i'm just as happy to help marines or firefighters or people that were abused as children. >> sgb is expected to help many people and l families who suffer from -- and their families who suffer from the ripple effects of ptsd. the next study is awaiting funding but is expected to be larger and last for one year with a longer followup plan. the cost is $15,000 for americans and civilians. >> it's hard to see the needle go into the neck. >> that woman is extraordinary -- >> if it works, that's all that matters. what is that give its so much potential? >> when we interviewed dr. mull vapy, he was in tears -- mulvaney, he was tears taurking about how you can turn a life

my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity.

8:03 am
ukraine while asking that country to investigate democrats including joe biden. sources tell cbs news the white house is hiring former florida attorney general and trump ally, pam bondi and former treasury spokesman tony sayegh and they will help with the messaging in an effort to fight off impeachment. the impeachment proceedings on capitol hill could eventually pull some senators running for president from the campaign trail and that includes kamala harris. her poll numbers are falling and she closed all three of her field offices in new hampshire. alex wagner interviewed the california senator for the showtime series "the circus." she discussed her strategy if impeachment reaches the senate. >> you are asked to sit silently as a juror. have you thought about the psychology of that? >> yeah. i thought about my own psychology. [ laughter ] i mean, i've never been able to

[ laughter ] >> and alex wagner joins us now. good morning. >> good morning, guys. it's good to see you in person. >> it is difficult to picture kamala harris sitting silent as a juror. >> there are six democrats who are senators running for president. kamala harris is a former prosecutor. she says i am the person that knows how these impeachment proceedings should run and yet her role when it goes to the senate is to sit quietly as a juror. >> can she do that? >> you see she's saying, look, i've thought about this. it will it will be hard for me to sit on my hands to say nothing that all of these democrats want to be in iowa at precisely the moment that an impeachment trial will be unfolding. >> meanwhile, she just shook off her campaign staff and laid off some people and shifted a lot of resources to iowa.
8:05 am
what does that say about where she is. look, the campaign is very clear. if they don't do well in iowa they have problems and they're going all in and there's momentum and some lift from a strong finish and probably not first or second, but third or fourth and they can use that momentum through south carolina which is really where the harris campaign thinks they will do well. they have effectively and i believe they will not say this publicly dismissed whatever will happen in new hampshire because bernie sanders and elizabeth warren is from neighboring states and they think the south will be good for this campaign and the question is whether they have the resources to get there. the impeachment inquiry hearings opened to the public next week starting on wednesday. what's the significance of that since so many people feel i've already heard everything. i think that there's a difference between reading about closed-door depositions and seeing them on your television. >> and hearing -- >> and hearing people say the words i did this. the president told me to do this. that is meaningful. republicans have been pressing for open-door hearings. they're getting what they
8:06 am
wanted. there is going to be inevitably be grandstanding and the republicans feel they're under pressure to mount a more defense, and democrats no doubt feel that the more information the american public is presented with the more their case is open and shut. >> meanwhile the republican defense of the president is, shall we say, evolving. >> yes. that is a euphemism. >> what is the strategy here? >> it's threefold. republicans that say there is nothing to see here and this is a quid pro quo and lindsay graham has taken this tact and the white house didn't have a strategy that was articulated and there was no quid pro quo because they weren't organized enough for it and there was a quid pro quo, but it doesn't rise to the level of an impeachable offense. they've not found ground to stand on in terms of a yunified tone. >> these will be tricky for moderate democrats and moderate republicans. >> if you look at the poll that came out earlier this week support for impeachment is under water in key battleground states
8:07 am
in michigan, wisconsin, north carolina, arizona, and that's a problem who effectively won and handed the gavel to nancy pelosi. they are performing their constitutional duty, but also do not appear to be overtly partisan because voters back at home, i've talked to these voters and they still very much care about jobs, healthcare, trade, the environment. impeachment is not -- it is not the thing that is animated kitchen table discussion. >> and these national polls and the state polls really matter most. >> the deep dive. >> alex, thank you very much. >> season 4 of "the circus" continues this sunday on showtime which is a division of cbs, check your local listings. some republican senators are teaming up with democrats to find solutions in the climate change crisis. ahead only on "cbs this morning" we hear from the senate's first climate caucus
