In this triple-blind randomized controlled trial, we ask if targeting intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) based on individual resting state connectivity improves treatment outcomes in major depressive disorder (MDD). For the trial, we will recruit 210 patients with major depressive disorder. Each patient will undergo a 30-40-minute MRI scan, after which they will receive a 6-week standard iTBS treatment. Participants will be randomized to receive iTBS either to the standard neuronavigated target (a technique for treatment location targeting, based on group-average connectivity) or to a personalized connectivity-guided target selected based on individual functional connectivity scans. The main outcome of this trial is response rate as determined by ≥ 50% reduction in Grid HRSD-17 scores. Secondary outcomes include remission rate, change in depression, anxiety and anhedonia symptoms, quality of life, and biological measures of heart rate variability, objective sleep measures and daily activity as a proxy of anhedonia - defined as a reduced ability to experience pleasure.
The investigators aim to examine the magnitude of non-specific effects in the treatment of depressive episodes with esketamine, by providing patients in the intervention group with a pretreatment presentation and post-treatment follow up session, to assess whether nonspecific effects can be used effectively to improve the effectiveness of treatment with esketamine.
The objective of this study is to collect data to finalize the development of MEB-001 softward as a medical device. The data collected in this study will be used to develop MEB-001 machine learning algorithms by training the algorithms to match the patient's demographic and clinical information, and the objective physiological signals (i.e., electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrocardiogram (ECG)) recorded during PSG with the diagnosis of cMDE performed through the MINI neuropsychiatric evaluation.
This study apply a wearable visual device (HMD)-VR-based software medical device for patients with depressive disorder for 8 weeks. The investigator would like to confirm evaluate the safety and efficacy of the wearable visual device(HMD)-VR-based software medical device effect of improving depressive disorder in patients.
Evidence-based treatments for depression, such as antidepressive medication, usually have a latency of 4 to 6 weeks before they achieve a therapeutic effect. Chronotherapy is a group of non-pharmacological interventions that presumably act on the circadian system to achieve a rapid-onset clinical effect and better long-term effects and has been shown efficient to improve depressive symptoms. Interventions include sleep deprivation, sleep-phase advancement and stabilization, and light therapy. There are few studies testing the effectiveness of combining these three chronotherapeutic techniques in the initial phase of treatment of depression in a secondary mental health care outpatient clinic. The investigators aim to test the effects and safety of chronotherapy in addition to TAU compared to TAU alone, with the primary outcome being self-reported depressive symptoms at 1 week following randomization. The study is a randomized controlled trial with 76 patients with a depressive episode who initiate outpatient treatment at Nidaros DPS, St. Olavs University Hospital. Participants will be allocated 1:1 to either chronotherapy + treatment as usual (TAU) or to TAU alone.
This is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of TNX-601 ER monotherapy versus placebo in patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is worldwide one of the most prevalent and disabling mental health conditions. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a safe and effective treatment even though 6-month relapse rates are high. Cognitive side effects of ECT, such as reduced cognitive control, might trigger mechanisms that increase relapse in patients. As such, cognitive control training (CCT) holds promise as a non-pharmacological strategy to improve long-term effects of ECT (i.e., increase remission, and reduce depression relapse).
This is a prospective, longitudinal, single-center observational study of data from the medical records of patients hospitalized after a characterized depressive episode and reviewed three months after hospital discharge, as part of a normally scheduled evaluation.
The investigators will include patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), in episode. The patients will undertake neuropsychological tasks evaluating executive function and clinical assessment related to depressive symptoms, anxiety, transdiagnostic symptoms and psychological skills.
This is a randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial comparing OSU6162 at flexible dosage with placebo as add-on to treatment with an SSRI/SNRI in patients with depression that have not responded to treatment with an SSRI/SNRI per se for at least 6 weeks. The study will last for 6 weeks, after which those not having responded will leave the trial and those having responded will be offered to continue treatment without unblinding for another 4 weeks. While assessment of the efficacy and safety of OSU6162 is the main objective of this study, possible differences between the two treatment groups with respect to a number of biomarkers in serum will also be explored. Multicenter trial: Multiple sites four Gothenburg, Lund, Stockholm and Uppsala.
