Subjects Needed For Depression Study

Sep 29, 2013 06:00PM

The University of Arizona is running a non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive study at UMC Hospital on an alternative therapy for depression, and is looking for test subjects between the ages of 18 and 65 that are currently experiencing depression for at least four weeks. Other qualifications apply.

The procedure involves a single session of one of two intensities of whole body hyperthermia that takes approximately two hours and involves lying in a machine that delivers safe infrared heating to the body. The study will examine the effects on depressive symptoms, stress and immune systems, sleep and how subjects relate to other people in their environment.

Compensation will be provided to eligible subjects. This study is UA IRB approved. For more information, call 520-314-7492, email [email protected] or visit
