Thread: Small Clinical Trial in Florida for treatment-resistant OCD

  1. #1

    Small Clinical Trial in Florida for treatment-resistant OCD

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to reduce symptom severity and enhance the quality of life for patients with treatment-resistant obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

    Expected Total Enrollment: 6

    University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida

    http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct/gui/show/NCT00057603
    Whoever the "lucky" six are, they are forunate in that Deep Brain Stimulation, if I remember correctly, costs about $20,000 outside of clinical trials.

    For more OCD clinical trials:

    This is a part of a very interesting line of research into alternative treatments for anxiety and mood disorders. It's not clear yet whether any of it will pan out to anything but it's fascinating...
