Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
This is an exciting new clinical trial using an investigational drug for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in people who have had an inadequate response to other antidepressants. Worldwide, about 15% of the adult population is at lifetime risk of developing MDD. This has a significant effect on people’s ability to lead fulfilling lives. Developing an effective drug for previously treatment resistant depression is thus a research priority.
If you have a diagnosis of depression and are aged 18 to 65, or know someone who is and would benefit from this research please get in touch.
Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either an active drug or placebo. They will be required to visit the clinic 7 times (over 12 weeks) to complete physical and health checks. All expenses are covered.
If you are interested in the study or would like some more information please contact us on 01932 722247 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
