Major Depressive Disorder patients may be able to contribute to our understanding of depression. If you have Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) that hasn’t responded to anti-depressant medication, learn about this research study of an investigational drug for MDD. As part of their study participation, patients will be regularly evaluated and closely monitored by a team of medical professionals. To pre-qualify for this study, you must: be 18 to 65 years of age; have been diagnosed with MDD; be in a current depressive episode for at least 8 weeks but not more than 12 months; and have been taking an antidepressant medication for at least the last 8 weeks. Additional criteria will apply. All study-related visits, tests, and study drugs will be provided at no cost. In addition, reimbursement for study-related travel may be provided.
