Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a medical condition that can cause emotional, physical, behavioral and cognitive symptoms.
It is estimated that Depression affects one in every fifteen adults yearly, and one in every six people will experience Depression at one point in their lives.1 Depression can happen to anyone at any time, but usually tends to affect those in their late teens to mid-twenties.
Because Depression can cause a variety of symptoms for different people, it is important to be aware of the signs and signals:1
If you or someone you know may be showing symptoms of Depression, seek out professional medical advice for a proper diagnosis.
The Depression Study is researching a new investigational medication for those with Depression.
A research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug or device – these may include how well an investigational study drug, or device, works for a certain condition. All medications and devices must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved and prescribed to patients.
A research study is the process by which new and innovative medications, treatments and devices are approved and brought to market, so people can live happier and healthier lives. Even over-the-counter medications, such as NSAIDs, you may have used to counteract a headache, have gone through the clinical research study process before it was available at your local pharmacy.
The Depression Study is a multi-center study researching the effectiveness of an investigational treatment for Depression.
There is no cost to participate in the Depression Study. If you decide to take part:
The study team will be able to explain more about what the Depression Study will involve, and it is up to you to decide if you want to take part. Participation in this study is voluntary, whether or not you decide to participate in this study will not affect your current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships.
We match you to a research center within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a research center in your area becomes available. If, at any time, you decided you no longer want your information stored, you can opt out and we will delete your details.
The purpose of the Depression Study is to test a new investigational medication for those with depression. If you qualify and choose to participate you will have access to a new potential treatment option that may help improve your symptoms.
Study participants will receive all study-related care at no cost. Participants may be paid for each study visit they complete.
