Clinical Trial Summary

The primary aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of whole-body hyperthermia in addition to standard medical care in comparison to standard medical care alone on depressive symptom severity in patients with moderate to severe depressive disorder.

Secondary aims included further quality of life outcomes, immunological parameters, and tolerability/safety of the hyperthermia.
