The FLAME Study is a 16-week clinical trial to study treatment with lamotrigine or fluoxetine in bipolar I, II and bipolar schizoaffective depressed adults. The purpose of the trial is to have a better understanding of whether individuals with a particular gene type and other inherited biological markers will have a good response to fluoxetine or lamotrigine, or alternatively, would be more likely to have side effects to this medication.
The overall goal is to better understand the underlying pathophysiology of mood disorders and bipolar disorders in particular. We aim to investigate whether the subclinical atherosclerotic and inflammatory markers differ between patients with bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and psychiatric non-mood disorders and healthy subjects.
The purpose of this research study is to compare the antidepressant effect of lithium versus placebo in adults receiving ketamine. Lithium is available commercially for depression; ketamine is available commercially and can help the symptoms of depression; however, it has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this use. The FDA has allowed the use of this drug in this research study.
The purpose of this study is to find out if some patients with mood symptoms have antibodies (part of the immune system) that affect the brain, and could possibly play a role in the development of mood symptoms. We also want to find out if these immune markers change once your mood normalizes.
