A clinical trial evaluating an investigational medication for children and teens with Major Depressive Disorder.
Depression is more than just feeling a little sad or having a rough day.
For someone with depression, the feelings of sadness can last a long time. Depression can affect children and adolescents of all ages. Young people with depression may show symptoms that seem different from adult symptoms. Children and adolescents who have depression may complain that they don’t feel well, may refuse to go to school, or may worry that a loved one may leave or die. Sudden changes in weight or in sleep patterns may also be signs of depression. Older teenagers may get into trouble at school or show reduced interest in activities they used to enjoy, such as playing sports or spending time with friends.
IPS Research is seeking participants for a clinical trial of an investigational medication for the treatment of depression in kids. If your child has symptoms of depression, they may be a candidate for this clinical trial.
This depression study is evaluating an investigational medication to learn if it is safe and effective for kids who have major depressive disorder (MDD).
Your child may be eligible if he or she:
• Is 12 to 17 years old
• Has been diagnosed with MDD or has been having feelings of depression
Qualified participants may receive:
- Study-related care and study drug at no cost
- Compensation for time and travel
