This study is open to adults between 18 and 65 years of age who have depression (major depressive disorder). People with a current depressive episode lasting between 2 months and one and a half years can join the study. This study is for people for whom existing treatments for depression do not work sufficiently. The purpose of this study is to test how well a medicine called BI 1569912 is tolerated and whether it may help people with depression. It is planned to test 4 different dosages of BI 1569912 in this study. Each participant gets either one BI 1569912 dosage or placebo. It is decided randomly, which means by chance, who gets which treatment. Participants take BI 1569912 or placebo as tablets once during the study. Placebo tablets look like BI 1569912 tablets but do not contain any medicine. Participants also continue taking their usual medicine for depression throughout the study. Participants are in the study for about 5 weeks. During this time, they visit the study site 4 times, with a stay at the study site for 9 days. The doctors check the health of the participants and note any health problems that could have been caused by BI 1569912. The participants fill in questionnaires about their depression symptoms.
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of a protocol in which individuals with comorbid depression or anxiety disorders and alcohol use disorder will be randomized to complete Amplification of Positivity for Alcohol Use Disorder (AMP-A)- a psychological treatment focused on increasing positive thoughts, emotions, and behaviors- or a traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) intervention. Assessed outcomes will include participant acceptability and completion rates, participant compliance with the intervention, positive and negative affect, substance use- and depression and anxiety-related symptom severity, and functional disability.
The birth of a child is a major life event that can be filled with excitement, anticipation and joy. However, the transition and adaptation to new demands, roles, responsibilities, and changes in relationships can be stressful, especially for new mothers. In addition, new mothers typically encounter physiological changes and struggle with concerns about weight gain, body image, sexuality, and other physical difficulties such as fatigue. These problems may generate or exacerbate stress, lead to an actual or perceived crisis and psychological distress. Psychological distress, defined as anxiety, depression, and insomnia, in this study, often increases during the postpartum period and can negatively affect maternal mental health status, maternal and family relationships, and infant-child health. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) on anxiety, insomnia, depression, and maternal functioning in first time new mothers following childbirth.
The present study aims to evaluate whether an online, self-administered, single session intervention (SSI) increases children and adolescents' perceptions of control over external threats and their emotional experience and reduces self-reported symptoms of anxiety and low mood. Children and adolescents, identified by their parents as having difficulties with low mood or anxiety, will be randomised to receive either the growth mindset of personality intervention or an active comparison condition. Whether parental low mood and anxiety has a moderating impact on outcomes will also be investigated.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a promising, novel, non-invasive therapy for depression. The study is looking at changes in specific electroencephalogram parameters in depressed patients treated with rTMS can serve as predictors of depression treatment response among cancer patents undergoing rTMS treatment of depression.
Growing evidence suggests that dopamine contributes to key cognitive, emotional, and motor functions across the lifespan. In Late-Life Depression (LLD), dysfunction in these areas is common, predicts poor outcomes, and manifests as difficulties in motivation and effort along with cognitive and gait impairment. While studies of dopamine function in early and midlife depression primarily focus on individuals' ability to feel pleasure and respond to rewards, they often exclude the cognitive and physical function domains relevant for older adults despite a recognized decline in dopamine function with normal aging. The objectives of this collaborative R01 proposal between Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute and Vanderbilt University Medical Center are to: 1) characterize dopaminergic dysfunction in LLD across cognitive, emotional, and motor domains at several levels of analysis (cellular Positron Emission Tomography [PET], circuit Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI], and behavioral / self-report); and 2) examine the responsivity of dopamine-related circuits and behavior to stimulation with carbidopa/levodopa (L-DOPA).
Fifteen to twenty percent of older Americans (6 to 8 million people) suffer from depression but more than one-half do not receive any services, a burden disproportionately shared by low-income and minority older adults who receive few or no services. The investigators propose to test a community-based peer model of depression care called PEERS (a peer support program) that provides self-care support for minority and low-income older adults.
Inflammation has been consistently associated with psychoneurological symptoms (PNS) among breast cancer survivors (BCS). Evidence supporting interventional strategies promoting symptom-self management in reducing inflammation-induced PNS in BCS is limited. Current guidelines for BCS encourage the consumption of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), abundantly available in fish, has a role in inflammatory downregulation. Low dietary DHA has been associated with inflammation and fatigue in BCS. Dietary planning targeting increased fish consumption thereby reducing red and processed meats are components of the major nutritional recommendations for BCS. A critical gap exists in knowledge regarding interventions promoting adherence to dietary guidelines in BCS supporting PNS self-management. This investigation uses personalized meal planning among BCSs (n=150) who are 1-2 years post-treatment for early-stage breast cancer and experiencing PNS (pain, fatigue, depression, sleep disturbance, stress) to evaluate the feasibility of a personalized meal planning approach in supporting adherence to current dietary guidelines for BCS. As a first step in this program of research, we will evaluate the feasibility of an personalized meal planning approach in promoting adherence to dietary guidelines for BCS through evaluating the feasibility of a personalized meal planning approach in a cohort of BCSs with respect to recruitment, group allocation, salivary inflammatory quantification and receptivity to and adherence with dietary interventions. This investigation will also contribute to a preliminarily evaluation of the efficacy of high or low fish diet in reducing inflammation (IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-a) and PNS symptoms. Nationally, there is a priority for the development of personalized health strategies supporting self-management of adverse symptoms. This investigation focused on PNS in BCS is an initial step in generating new knowledge in efficacious approaches toward guiding decisions on dietary behavior change strategies that are personalized, cost-effective, and sustainable.
This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of exosome deployment with concurrent transcranial ultrasound in patients with refractory, treatment resistant depression, anxiety, and neurodegenerative dementia.
This study will test whether 7-10 day administration of the anti-inflammatory drug, tofacitinib, has positive effects on people experiencing treatment-resistant depression compared to placebo.
