The Safety and Efficacy of Psilocybin in Participants with Treatment Resistant Depression
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the compound MIJ821 compared to placebo in patients aged from 18 to 65 years diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression. The study will be conducted in the US and in Europe (Spain and Czech Republic). The MIJ821 will be administered via infusion on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. The efficacy will be measured after 24 hours using a specific golden standard scale, the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale. The study duration is 6 weeks of treatment plus 1 month of follow up period.
Mexico, prevalence reported for major depressive disorder (MDD) is of 7.2%. It is currently in the top 5 causes of disability worldwide. One third of patients will not achieve remission after two treatments, being classified as treatment-resistant. In a neurochemical level, evidence shows dysregulation of the excitatory neurotransmitter Glutamate in patients with MDD. Chronic stress has been related to this dysregulation. Ketamine, has shown to regulate glutamatergic neurotransmission, and specially promote the release and production of neurotrophic factors key in the causes of MDD inhibited by glutamate dysregulation), and allow restoration of areas affected. Clinical studies of ketamine in MDD have shown robust, durable , and rapid effects (during the first 4-24 hours), allowing a great opportunity for patients who do not achieve benefits from antidepressants or patients with suicidal ideation . These results have been reported in metaanalysis. To our knowledge, there are no studies using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, in areas related to MDD, after a series of ketamine administrations, which we think may show changes after this chronic administration and explain its antidepressant properties. Goals: Provide clinical evidence of responseas well as a neurological basis or biomarker of response to a series of ketamine infusions.
This trial aims to assess the efficacy and tolerability of Magnetic Seizure Therapy (MST) and two different forms of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in sustaining response during and after a course of continuation treatment.
Treatment resistant depression (TRD) is a frequent, debilitating condition mostly treated by antidepressants. Repeated magnetic transcranial stimulation (rTMS) has proven adjuvant efficacy in TRD in the acute phase of treatment with a very good tolerance and acceptability. Maintenance rTMS (mTMS) is a strategy consisting in adding regular single TMS sessions after response to an acute course in order to keep the benefit of initial treatment over several month or years. Demonstrating that rTMS is efficient to improve long-term prognosis and decrease economic burden would have a tremendous impact in clinical practice in psychiatry. Thus the investigator's aim is to analyze the long term impact of mTMS treatment on costs, but also quality of life and clinical issues.
This study will compare the antidepressant effects of propofol versus a placebo intervention while measuring potential treatment-related biomarkers.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of re-treatment using accelerated schedule of intermittent theta-burst stimulation for treatment-resistant depression. This is an open label study.
The habenula (Hb) is an ancient structure, located at the center of the dorsal diencephalic conduction system, a pathway involved in linking forebrain to midbrain regions. An increasing number of studies indicated that the lateral habeluna (LHb) is overactivity during depressive behaviors in rats, where it could drive the changes in midbrain monoamine neurotransmitter linked to depression. However, the efficiency and mechanism of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the LHb and/or its major afferent bundle (i.e., stria medullaris thalami) could treat treatment-resistant major depression (TRD) is still unclear. This research will investigate the effectiveness and mechanism of bilateral MRI Compatible and Long-term LFP Recordable DBS to habenula and/or its major afferent bundle for treatment TRD patients.
The primary objective of this multicenter, randomized, sham-controlled, double blind (patient and observer blinded) clinical trial is to assess the antidepressant effect of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in patients with treatment resistant major depression using the Boston Scientific implantable Vercise™ GEVIA™ DBS system compared to sham.
The purpose of this trial is identify biomarkers of response to repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in individuals with first episode or treatment resistant depression. These biomarkers include simultaneous TMS-fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), a blood smear, cognitive and behavioural assessments, questionnaires, and neurophysiology.
