What is Major Depression?
Major depression may also impact concentration and motivation, making it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. Suicidal thinking is sometimes present. Patients experiencing major depression may feel worthless, guilty, helpless, and hopeless.
When enough of these symptoms have been present for at least two weeks, the diagnosis of major depression is appropriate.
What are Depression Studies?
At CenExel CBH, we offer both inpatient and outpatient depression studies. We also have trials focusing on treatment-resistant depression, which has not responded to medication or psychotherapy.
Who Should Participate?
- Be between the ages of 18-65 years
- Have a diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder
- Be in good physical health
Participating in a depression clinical trial is a good option to consider if you are experiencing depression and your current medications are not working well or enough. If you are in good physical health, and want to explore some new treatments for your depression, contact us today.
What are the Risks and Benefits?
- You may get a new treatment before it becomes widely available
- You play a more active role in your own healthcare
- Researchers may provide you with increased medical treatment and more frequent health visits
- You may help others get better treatments for their health concerns
- You may receive compensation for your time and travel
After researchers extensively test new treatments or procedures in a lab, the most promising and safe treatments are approved for clinical trials. As these new treatments move through a series of clinical research steps called phases, we gain more information about the treatments’ risks and effectiveness. Safety is always the top priority, and clinical testing ceases if patient safety is compromised.
In addition to directly advancing the development of the newest medicines and therapies, participants may receive these new treatments themselves. They will receive extra care and attention from clinical trial staff. Study participants will also receive compensation for time and travel. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers and physicians find better treatments.
