Comparing Effectiveness of Aripiprazole Augmentation, rTMS Augmentation, and Switching to Venlafaxine XR in Treatment Resistant Depression (ASCERTAIN-TRD)

 

 

 This clinical research study is a multi-site, randomized, open-label study designed to help us compare the efficacy of three treatment options for depression: a) aripiprazole added to the current antidepressant, b) rTMS added to the current antidepressant, and c) switching to venlafaxine XR.

Personalized Brain Target for TMS in Treatment of MDD and PTSD

This study is designed to evaluate the treatment effects of TMS performed at two different brain regions. The goal is to improve clinical outcomes by using brain targets individually chosen from each patient’s functional MRI scans.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact the Center for Neuromodulation in Depression and Stress (CNDS) by calling 215-573-2637 or send an e-mail to CNDSlab@mail.med.upenn.edu
