An Adaptive Algorithm-Based Approach to Treatment for Adolescent Depression

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two adaptive treatment strategies (ATSs) for adolescent depression. The ATSs include delivery of an evidence-based psychotherapy (interpersonal psychotherapy for depressed adolescents, IPT-A), systematic symptom monitoring, and an empirically-derived algorithm that specifies whether, when, and how to augment IPT-A. Two ...


Neural Components Underlying the Treatment of Adolescent Depression

The purpose of the study is to examine the impact of individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for adolescent depression on neural functioning. Specifically, the study will utilize Brent and Poling's (1997) cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) manual (Cognitive Therapy Treatment Manual for Depressed and Suicidal Youth), and investigators will examine pre- ...

Phase N/A

Neurophysiology Estrogen and Stress Exposure in the Emergence of Depression in Adolescent Girls

Framed within a diathesis-stress model of disease, the primary objective of this research is to determine a pathophysiological role of estradiol (E2) variability in the context of severe psychosocial stress exposure in regulating neurophysiological correlates of affective state change in girls (ages 12-14) during the pubertal transition (i.e., Tanner developmental ...

Phase N/A

Depression & Insulin Sensitivity in Adolescents

There has been rapid escalation of type 2 diabetes (T2D) rates in adolescents. Early-onset T2D (<20y) typically shows a more aggressive course than adult-onset T2D and disproportionately affects girls from disadvantaged, racial/ethnic groups. This group of girls also is at heightened risk for depression, and depression and T2D are linked. ...

Phase N/A

Depression in Adolescents. A Cerebral Structural Diffusion and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study

Adolescence is a key development period for neurobiological processes underlying emotional and cognitive functions in adulthood. The pathophysiology of mood disorders has recently been associated with maturation changes in brain networks, but little is known on the early brain structure changes associated with depression appearing during this major brain maturation ...

Phase N/A

Mobile Phone Based Peer Support to Prevent Postpartum Depression Among Adolescent Mothers

Postpartum depression (PPD) is one of several postpartum mood disorders and is classified as a major depressive disorder. It has the highest inception rate during the first 12 weeks postpartum and is frequently comorbid with anxiety disorders or significant anxiety symptoms. PPD is the most frequent form of maternal morbidity ...

Phase N/A

Ketamine Infusion for Adolescent Depression and Anxiety

We will conduct a crossover trial in which as many as 36 adolescents (18 with MDD and 18 with anxiety disorders) will be given a single infusion of ketamine (study drug) or midazolam (active control). MDD symptoms and anxiety symptoms will be monitored over a two-week period. If applicable, comorbid ...


Social Skills Group Training ("KONTAKT") for Children and Adolescent With High-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders

There are few randomized controlled trials of social skills group training for the Children's and adolescents with high functioning autism spectrum disorders (HFA)(1). The Objective of this trial is to investigate the behavioral effects of the manualized social skills group training KONTAKT (2,3) and the role of genetic variants for ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy of Levomilnacipran ER in Adolescent Patients With Major Depressive Disorder

Study LVM-MD-11 is a randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled, parallel group, fixed-dose study in adolescent patients, ages 12-17 years. The study will be approximately 10 weeks in duration: 1-week screening/washout period 8-week double-blind treatment period 1-week double-blind down-taper period Patients who meet the eligibility criteria at Visit 2 (Baseline) will ...


Predictors of Response to Treatment for Depression

Neurophysiological measures (i.e., event-related potentials) of reward responsiveness and regulation of mood-congruent, sad stimuli will be assessed in a sample of adolescents with depression prior to group cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). CBT will follow the Adolescent Coping with Depression Course, an established 16-session group treatment protocol, and consist of behavioral ...
