Although meta-analytic studies show that the effect of IBT is better than no intervention and equals ordinary therapy forcommon mental disorders, national authorities call for more evidence based on randomised clinical trials.Objective: To investigate if persons with an anxiety disorder treated in the IBT program FearFighter will improve and recover.Method: A randomised feasibility study with 64 participants allocated to A) FearFighter or B) waitlist control group. Participants are persons with adiagnosis of social phobia, agora phobia, phobia or panic disorder. The intervention with FearFighter is a nine step cognitive behavioural self-helptherapy program delivered over the internet over nine weeks. Participants are contacted by a support person once a week to secure compliance andprogress.Primary outcome is number of participants recovered measured with Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview. Secondary outcomes are BeckAnxiety Inventory, Symptom Check List-90R, WHO Well-Being Index and Sheehan Disability Scale. Group differences in number of recovered participantswill be analyzed with chi-2 test. Between groups effects on secondary outcome measures will be analyzed with ANOVA.Results: Results are expected during the autumn 2015.
