Depression Clinical Trial

Reimbursement: £2580 to £2630, plus reasonable travel expenses reimbursed

About This clinical research study

Clinical research trials are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research projects make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a medication, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, and to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

There is an unmet need for new and improved treatments to help those suffering from recurrent depression. Many people do not respond appropriately or suffer side-effects from current approved medications, which can result in patients not taking them.

The purpose of this trial is to test the study medication GM-2505, which is being developed for the treatment of depression. GM-2505 is expected to have similar effects as the psilocybin (the active component in magic mushrooms) and DMT (the active component in ayahuasca), both of which are known to have psychedelic effects on the body. Both psilocybin and DMT are also being investigated for the treatment of depression.

Reimbursement: £2580 to £2630, plus reasonable travel expenses reimbursed.
