NCT ID: NCT05482724 Active, not recruiting - Anxiety Disorders Clinical Trials

Super Skills for Life Effectiveness in Clinical Settings

Start date: May 2, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Super Skills for Life (SSL) is a transdiagnostic cognitive-behavioral protocol developed for children aged 6 to 12 with anxiety and comorbid problems (e.g., depression, low self-esteem, and lack of social skills). SSL consists of eight sessions targeting common risk factors for internalizing disorders such as cognitive distortions, avoidance, emotional management, low self-esteem, social skills deficits and coping strategies. The aim of the study is to investigate the short- and long-term effects of SSL on internalizing and externalizing symptoms in Spanish children attending the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

NCT ID: NCT05481957 Active, not recruiting - Bipolar Depression Clinical Trials

Vortioxetine Adjunctive Treatment in Bipolar Depression

Start date: March 1, 2022
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Depressive episode of bipolar disorder is often the first symptom of patients with bipolar disorder, which is characterized by frequent recurrence, relatively long duration, high comorbidity rate and high fatality rate. People with bipolar disorder spend a third of their lives depressed, and it is these depressive symptoms that lead to long-term disability and early death. The treatment of bipolar depression is controversial. The latest Mood Disorders CPG guidelines recommend first-line therapy: quetiapine, lurasidone, lithium, valproate, lamotrigine monotherapy or combination of quetiapine, lurasidone plus Mood stabilizer, olanzapine plus fluoxetine therapy. In addition, the use of antidepressants is still controversial, and their efficacy, prognosis and risk of mania remain to be evaluated. Vortioxetine is a novel antidepressant with unique characteristics, and its multi-mode mechanism of action can be used to treat a wide spectrum of symptoms of depression. Current clinical experience suggests that the clinical conversion rate of vortioxetine is low, and the depressive symptoms and cognitive symptoms of people with depressive episodes are significantly improved. As of September 2019, a total of 4.87 million patient years (nearly 3 months of treatment with 20 million patients) were treated with vortioxetine in PSUR (Periodic Safety Update), with 51 reported cases of hypomania and 322 reported cases of mania. Based on the above data, the post-marketing conversion rate of vortioxetine is approximately 1 in 10,000 patient-years or 1 in 40,000 patients. Therefore, the efficacy and risk of transferring to mania of vortioxetine in bipolar II depressive episode deserve further investigation.

NCT ID: NCT05477706 Active, not recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Start date: October 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This research project will refine and evaluate delivery of a peer-delivered evidence-based intervention to improve perceived access and actual engagement with mental health treatment and social resource service use among rural women Veterans, especially Veterans of color, with psychological distress and unmet social needs.

NCT ID: NCT05455905 Active, not recruiting - Healthy Clinical Trials

Voice Biomarkers Predictive of Depression and Anxiety

Start date: September 14, 2021
Study type: Observational

The objective of this study is to collect data to improve the sensitivity and specificity of Kintsugi Voice's (formerly KiVATM) predictions on audio files. A web-based audio recording tool will be used to record voice sample and ask participants the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 questions. A voluntary subset of participants will then be assessed by mental health professionals with the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D) and Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A) scores.

NCT ID: NCT05436145 Active, not recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Intern Health Study 2022

Start date: July 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of an intervention (delivered through a smartphone) for improving the mood, physical activity, and sleep of medical interns.

NCT ID: NCT05424224 Active, not recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Using rTMS to Treat Depression

Start date: September 9, 2021
Study type: Observational

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a promising, novel, non-invasive therapy for depression. In fact, there is an FDA-approved depression protocol to stimulate the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC). Its efficacy and safety have improved significantly with continued research and clinical experience. However, it is not known how to identify potential patients who would benefit most from treatment. The primary goal of this study is to determine if changes in specific electroencephalogram (EEG) parameters after treatment can predict whether patients are responders or non-responders to rTMS. The second objective is to analyze changes in the functional connectivity of specific brain regions in responders compared to non-responders. The hypothesis is that through rTMS treatment, investigators will be able to increase the activity in the frontal region that includes the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Scalp EEG signals will be processed in order to compare EEG brain connectivity and Frontal alpha asymmetry index (FAA) to determine if there are differences before and after the treatment. EEG FAA is usually calculated by subtracting the right-side EEG power estimates from the respective counterpart on the other side. According to literature, depressive patients seem to have comparatively higher left frontal alpha power. Cortical activity is related to a reduced EEG power, which is reflected in depressed subjects. On the other hand, higher alpha power could also be interpreted as inhibition. Investigators will try to delineate changes in resting EEG functional connectivity before and after high-frequency left prefrontal rTMS, by using biomarkers such as: time/frequency connectivity, Alpha asymmetry index, among others. TMS also allows cortical properties, such as excitability, inhibition, oscillatory activity and connectivity to be directly probed within a specific region of the cortex. Other studies suggest that alterations in gamma oscillations in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and neighboring frontal regions are also potential shared biomarkers in psychiatry, highlighting the potential of EEG signals to help identify suitable biomarkers. Given its relative low cost and ease of use, when compared to brain imaging tools such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET), EEG could be added to the clinical study so that precise neurophysiological changes before and after treatments can be assessed.

NCT ID: NCT05398107 Active, not recruiting - Depression, Anxiety Clinical Trials

Building Emotion Awareness and Mental Health (BEAM): Community Partnership With Family Dynamics

Start date: January 28, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, postpartum depression and anxiety has increased dramatically. This is problematic as mothers in Manitoba must wait 12-18 months for therapeutic services. Children exposed to maternal mental illness in the first few years of life are at risk of negative lifelong adverse effects. Thus, the investigators of this project created and have tested The Building Emotion Awareness and Mental health (BEAM) program, which is an app-based mental health and parenting program for mothers of young children who are experiencing depression and/or anxiety. BEAM is now ready to be tested in partnership with an established community agency. This partnership will enable counsellors to provide expert-led mental health treatment to supplement and expand upon existing mental health services and will enable an established agency to address widespread unmet family mental health needs through the provision of mobile health (mHealth) content, training, and consultation. A two-arm pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) with repeated measures will be used to evaluate the BEAM program compared to MoodMission (an evidence-based mHealth program) which will be the standard of care. Outcomes will be assessed to determine the effects of the BEAM program on reducing maternal mental health symptoms among a sample of 80 mothers who self-report moderate-to-severe symptoms of depression and/or anxiety (on the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7, respectively), meet criteria for a current major depressive episode and/or anxiety disorder (as determined on the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview) and have a child between the ages of 6 to 18 months old.
