Millions of people in the United States suffer from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) but the majority of them aren’t getting the help they need from their first-line treatment.
A clinical research study is currently evaluating an investigational drug for its safety and effectiveness as an antidepressant therapy for Major Depressive Disorder.
Why should I participate?
The knowledge gained from this study may help others with Major Depressive Disorder in the future.
The investigational drug being studied may or may not help in the treatment of your depression, and the clinical research team will discuss all potential study benefits and risks with you and answer any questions you may have.
Eligible participants will receive study related tests and procedures at no cost.
How to Participate
If you are interested in participating, you will go through a series of screening assessments including:
• physical exam
• a review of your health and medication history
• blood and urine testing
• ECG (electrocardiogram)
You will also be requested to fast (apart from water) for 8-10 hours and complete a “washout” period of time where you stop taking some or all medications prior to taking the study drug.
If you are eligible and choose to participate, you will be randomly assigned (like a flip of a coin) to receive the investigational drug or a placebo.
Am I Eligible?
You may be eligible to participate in this clinical study if you are:
• 18 – 65 years old
• Diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder
• Not getting adequate response with your current treatment
Not pregnant and are willing to use contraceptives to prevent pregnancy during the study
Note: These are not the only eligibility criteria for this clinical research study, and other criteria may exclude you. A clinical research team member will help determine if you meet all necessary criteria to participate.
Qualified participants will receive:
• Study related care and office visits at no cost. Insurance is not required
• Investigational study medication at no cost
