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...
