DNA Methylation-derived epigenetic age
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 22, 2022)
  • Severity of Illness and baseline epigenetic age [ Time Frame: Assessment will evaluate the correlation of data collected at baseline with data from after treatment is completed, on average five weeks ]
    Assess if severity of illness prior to treatment is associated with biological age before treatment
  • Severity of Illness and post-treatment epigenetic age [ Time Frame: Assessment will evaluate the correlation of data collected at baseline with biological age assessed after treatment is complete, on average five weeks ]
    Assess if severity of illness, as measured by PHQ-9 (Patient Health Questionnaire-9) or PCL-5 (PTSD Checklist for DSM 5) prior to treatment is associated with biological age after treatment
  • Degree of Treatment Response [ Time Frame: Assessment will compare the difference in PHQ-9/PCL-5 scores from baseline to after treatment with change in biological age from baseline to post-treartment. ]
    Assess if degree of treatment response to ketamine infusion, as measured by PHQ-9 (Patient Health Questionnaire-9) or PCL-5 (PTSD Checklist for DSM 5), is associated with change in biological age
