Clinical Trial 51976

New York, NY 10128


Our private clinical research site is conducting multiple studies for patients with depression (Major Depressive Disorder, or MDD).  These are medication-based studies, researching new medicines that have been developed for the treatment of depression.  Most of the medications being researched are not yet FDA-approved, and are in the later stages of research (phase II and III).  No insurance is required and study participation is free of charge.  All interested patients will complete a confidential pre-screening over the phone.  Patients who are interested and who meet the initial eligibility criteria will then complete an in-person pre-screening visit at our office, with one of our clinicians (MD, PhD, or NP-C).  If eligible for a research study, study screening assessments will include a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and a medical exam including ECG and basic bloodwork.  For more details, please speak with one of our staff members.

Qualified Participants Must:

• be at least 18 years old
• be able to visit our clinic in Manhattan, NYC
• be willing to take medication for depression
• have a negative Urine Drug Screen
• not suffer from bipolar depression

Qualified Participants May Receive:

All patients who participate in a study at our clinic are offered 6 months of free ongoing care after the study is over.  Some patients may qualify for free treatment prior to study participation, as well.  We provide round trip transportation via Uber, and/or can reimburse your MetroCard or parking/tolls if you prefer to use public tranpsortation or drive yourself.  The studies also pay study participants for their time; this generally ranges from $25 to $125 per study visit completed and the exact amount depends on the study.  

Clinical trials are medical research studies designed to test the safety and/or effectiveness of new investigational drugs, devices, or treatments in humans.
