Clinical Trial Summary

The investigators conduct a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to investigate the effects and tolerability of rice bran extract on depressive symptoms and related biomarkers in mildly to moderately depressed patients for 8 weeks.


Clinical Trial Description

A previous animal study has indicated that rice bran extract provided inhibition of MAO-B enzyme activity and ROS formation in a corticosterone-induced depression-like animal model. Therefore, the investigators conduct a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to investigate the effects of rice bran extract on depressive symptoms and related biomarkers in mildly to moderately depressed patients for 8 weeks; the safety of the compound is also evaluated. The Investigators examine the Korean version of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, the Korean Version of the Beck-II Depression Inventory, the Korean version of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9, the Perceived Stress Scale, the Korean version of the Beck Anxiety Inventory and biomarkers at baseline and after 8 weeks of intervention. One hundred adults were administered either 1,000 mg of rice bran extract or a placebo each day for 8 weeks. ;
