Depression is a mental disorder characterized by a pervasive and persistent low mood that is accompanied by feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and by a loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities. While there are many medications currently available to treat this condition, many people remain dissatisfied with the degree of relief these drugs provide.
At any given time, there are multiple pharmaceutical company sponsored clinical trials being conducted at medical establishments throughout the country that are designed to evaluate the potential of new medications to more effectively treat this disorder. For example, there are currently clinical trials being conducted in the area of depression within the New York Metropolitan Area.
