Preventing Depression in Methadone Maintenance Patients Receiving Hepatitis C Treatment - 1

2014-08-27 03:49:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is develop and test a cognitive-behavioral intervention to prevent depression in methadone maintenance patients receiving medical treatment for hepatitis C.

Description

The purpose of this study is to develop a CBT-D intervention tailored to meet the needs of MMT patients undergoing antiviral treatment for hepatitis C. In the first phase of this project (Year 1), we will develop and pilot the intervention with 20 patients. In the second phase of the project (Years 2 and 3), we will conduct a preliminary, randomized trial with 60 MMT patients to examine the efficacy of the CBT-D intervention relative to standard care condition (SC).

We expect that, relative to the SC condition, participants randomized to the CBT-D condition will have decreased likelihood of depression-related antiviral treatment failure, will report lower levels of depressive symptoms, will complete more IFN injections, will have lower HCV RNA levels, and will have fewer illicit drug use days. If the efficacy of this intervention can be established in this trial and in subsequent clinical trials, MMT patients who elect to undergo antiviral therapy will have a valuable adjunct or alternative to the use of antidepressants to prevent depression. If found to be efficacious, this intervention will maximize the receipt of IFN treatment by MMT patients, thereby aiding in the prevention of liver failure, hepatocellular carcinoma, and liver-related death among those with HCV.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.

A serotonin uptake inhibitor that is used as an antidepressive agent. It has been shown to be effective in patients with major depressive disorders and other subsets of depressive disorders. It is generally more useful in depressive disorders associated with insomnia and anxiety. This drug does not aggravate psychotic symptoms in patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p309)

Marked depression appearing in the involution period and characterized by hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and agitation.

An affective disorder manifested by either a dysphoric mood or loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities. The mood disturbance is prominent and relatively persistent.

Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.
