Researchers invite people living with depression to participate in clinical study

protocol esketintrd 3005

Have you been diagnosed with depression?

Do you continue to have depression symptoms despite taking at least two different antidepressants?

If so, Derbyshire Healthcare researchers are currently looking for participants to take part in a clinical study. This study will look at the effectiveness and safety of an investigational treatment (given as a nasal spray) in patients with treatment-resistant depression, aged 65 or older, who have not responded to prior treatment with at least two antidepressants.

To be considered for the study, you must be:

  • 65 years of age or older
  • Diagnosed with depression
  • Still be experiencing depression symptoms despite having taken two antidepressants in the past
  • Comfortable with using a nasal spray
  • Able to provide written informed consent.


The study doctor will explain additional requirements for being in the study.

If you are eligible for this study and choose to participate, you will receive all study drug and study-related medical tests throughout the study. Compensation for your time and travel expenses may also be provided.
