NCT ID: NCT03321526 Suspended - Clinical trials for Depressive Disorder, Major

A Study to Compare the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of JNJ-42847922 Versus Quetiapine Extended-Release as Adjunctive Therapy to Antidepressants in Adult Participants With Major Depressive Disorder Who Have Responded Inadequately to Antidepressant Therapy

Start date: December 12, 2017
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of flexibly dosed JNJ-42847922 (20 milligram [mg] or 40 mg) compared to flexibly dosed quetiapine extended-release (XR) (150 mg or 300 mg) as adjunctive therapy to an antidepressant drug in delaying time to all-cause discontinuation of study drug over a 6-months (24 weeks) treatment period, in participants with major depressive disorder (MDD) who have had an inadequate response to current antidepressant therapy with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI).

NCT ID: NCT02953444 Suspended - Depression Clinical Trials

The Feasibility and Efficacy of an Extremely Brief Mindfulness Practice

Start date: November 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study will assess the efficacy of brief mindfulness practices on improving mental health in adults who are currently in treatment for mental health concerns. From online instructional videos, each participant will learn a thirty-second or three-minute mindfulness practice that is to be performed at least three times daily over two weeks.

NCT ID: NCT02940769 Suspended - Clinical trials for Major Depressive Disorder

Neurobiological Effects of Light on MDD

Start date: September 4, 2014
Phase: Early Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The primary study objective is to observe/measure the circadian pattern of sleep, Cortisol and Melatonin in MDD subjects and Control subjects. We will also assess if controlled exposure to light in MDD subjects (post-partum females, non- post-partum females and males) will change these parameters using light glasses. In addition to the biological outcome measures (sleep, cortisol and melatonin) we will also monitor sleep and depressive symptoms in the research subjects for the duration of the protocol.

NCT ID: NCT02546024 Suspended - Clinical trials for Depressive Disorder, Major

Predictors of Treatment Response in Late-onset Major Depressive Disorder

Start date: September 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Depression is a common disorder, especially in old age, where it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. This study will investigate whether there are features of individual patients with major depression that may predict positive treatment response. The study will invite 40 patients who have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder with onset after the age of 60 years to participate. Participants will be recruited from the Mental Health of Older Adults services at the South London and Maudsley NHS Mental Health Foundation Trust. Participants will receive usual treatment as set out in standard Care Pathways, used by the clinical care team. As part of the study, they will undergo a short battery of neuropsychological tests and a standard MRI brain imaging protocol. The neuropsychological tests and assessment of depression severity will be carried out twice (at Baseline and Week 12). Data will be analysed to investigate whether there are features specific to those patients who show a good response to antidepressant treatment after 12 weeks. Identification of such predictors may help to stratify treatment approaches in the future and lead to the early identification of individual patients who may require alternative treatment approaches to standard antidepressants.

NCT ID: NCT02176824 Suspended - Clinical trials for Major Depressive Disorder

Chronotherapy Randomized Controlled Trial

Start date: June 1, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Chronotherapy is a term that describes therapeutic alterations of sleep wake cycles. Different variations of sleep deprivation, set sleep wake schedules, and types of light therapy have demonstrated efficacy in rapidly treating depression, and suicidal thinking. This study seeks to explore the effect of two different chronotherapuetic protocols on acutely depressed and suicidal inpatients admitted to the Medical University of South Carolina

NCT ID: NCT01772498 Suspended - Depression Clinical Trials

HRV Biofeedback for Brain Tumour Survivors

Start date: January 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study is designed to take a first step toward testing the efficacy and acceptability of heart rate variability biofeedback (HRVB) as a means of ameliorating psychological distress in survivors of Primary Brain Tumour (PBT). HRVB is a biofeedback approach that provides clients with real time feedback about their heart rate variability (HRV) as a means of teaching them how to breathe in a specific, therapeutic manner. More specifically, this study has been designed to test several hypothesises. Each hypothesis is based on the prediction that, in a sample of psychologically distressed PBT survivors, a course of 8 HRVB sessions will demonstrate: - statistically significant reductions in levels of depression - statistically significant reductions in levels of anxiety - statistically significant increases in resting HRV - that reductions in anxiety and depression will be significantly, negatively correlated with increases in resting HRV - that the HRVB will be viewed as an acceptable intervention by the participants In addition to the hypothesises stated above, the study will also investigate in a discovery oriented manner if the HRVB intervention will have positive impacts on the participants: - levels of sleep impairment - levels of pain

NCT ID: NCT01557192 Suspended - Bipolar Depression Clinical Trials

Low Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS) in Mood Disorders: 6 Treatments

LFMS6tx
Start date: May 2010
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

To demonstrate the efficacy of multiple applications of Low Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS) as an antidepressant treatment in subjects with mood disorders.

NCT ID: NCT01162382 Suspended - Clinical trials for Major Depressive Disorder

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treating Depression: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study

Start date: January 2010
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This protocol, "Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for the Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD): A Functional Connectivity Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fcMRI) Study," is an open-label pilot treatment study. The purpose of the present protocol is to treat participants with a diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder with 4 weeks of rTMS, performing fcMRI and EEG studies prior to and following treatment to determine if treatment response is related to changes in fcMRI and/or EEG results. The investigators hypothesize that patients who respond to treatment will display changes in functional connectivity patterns thought to be related to the occurrence of depressive symptoms.

NCT ID: NCT00750906 Suspended - Depression Clinical Trials

ECT/Succinylcholine: Biochemical, Serum and Cardiovascular Changes

Start date: October 2008
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This study will be conducted to determine the pharmacodynamics, cardiovascular and biochemical effects of succinylcholine when given during electroconvulsive therapy. (ECT). This is a single center, prospective, study in patients who will be receiving ECT as indicated and prescribed by their psychiatrist. The study will be performed twice on each patient, 48-72 hours apart during consecutively scheduled ECT procedures.

NCT ID: NCT00470639 Suspended - Bipolar Depression Clinical Trials

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Bipolar Depression

Start date: April 2007
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This is a study to assess the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as a treatment for depressed adults with bipolar disorder. In rTMS high-intensity, fluctuating magnetic fields non-invasively stimulate the cortex of the brain depolarising neurons. No anaesthetic is required and the treatment in subconvulsive. Recent studies suggest that rTMS can be an effective treatment for depressive illness in adults (Loo and Mitchell et al, 2005) and appears to be quite safe. Most of the published studies to date have focused on unipolar depression. There is limited data of TMS use in bipolar depression. Eg. Pilot study by Nahas Z, Kozel FA, Li X, Anderson B, George MS.in 2003, which was negative. The investigators wish to assess this in a sham-controlled study of adults. The investigators hypothesise that both left and right sided rTMS will have an antidepressant effect superior to sham in this population.
