Biomarkers of Response to Ketamine in Depression: MRI and Blood Assays Before and After Open Label Intranasal Ketamine

This pilot study aims to identify predictors of response to intranasal ketamine treatment in patients with treatment-resistant depression.

Participants will give a sample of blood and undergo magnetic resonance imaging before and after a single intranasal ketamine treatment. Participants will subsequently receive a second intranasal ketamine treatment.

Our database in actively updated and may show a different status (e.g. completed) if we have knowledge of this update (e.g. a published paper on the study) which isn't reflected yet on CTG.
