About Major Depressive Disorder Study

A total of 320 men and women will be enrolled in the clinical trials for major depressive disorders. On the basis of the treatment method, subjects will be divided into two groups. Each participant will be in the study for 98 days, with a 28-day screening period, 42-days of double-blind treatment, and 3-4 weeks of follow-up.

This is a Phase 2 double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that will take place in about 50 study centers in the United States. It’s a fixed-dose clinical trial that compares the study drug versus a placebo to see how safe and effective it is. Throughout the Depression Clinical Trials, neither you, nor the study doctor will know which medication you receive i.e. the study drug or the placebo (without the active ingredient). In the case of an adverse event, the doctor will know which drug you receive.

Males and females between the ages of 18 and 64 who have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder are eligible to enroll in Depression Clinical Trials. The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and efficacy of the experimental drug taken orally in people with major depressive disorder for symptom reduction. Throughout the trial, data on adverse events, clinical laboratory results, ECG findings, and vital signs will be recorded to evaluate the drug’s tolerability.

What to Expect?
