  Purpose
The overall goal of this investigator-initiated trial is to evaluate the treatment outcome of depression utilizing platform algorithm products that can allow rapid identification of pharmacokinetic (PK) and/or pharmacodynamic (PD) genomic variation. This new technology may have the potential to optimize treatment selection by improving response, minimizing unfavorable adverse events / side effects and increasing treatment adherence.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in depression as measured by the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptoms (QIDS-C16) [ Time Frame: baseline, 8 weeks ]
    The QIDS-C16 is a 16-item scale that is clinician-rated; it is designed to assess the severity of depressive symptoms. The QIDS-C16 total score ranges from 0-27. Scores ranging from 0 to 10 correspond with no to mild depression, while scores >/= 11 correspond to moderate to severe depression. A negative change indicates improvement in the subject's depression, and a positive change indicates a worsening of the subject's depression.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects with improvement of depressive symptoms as shown by 50% reduction in QIDS-C16 score [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The QIDS-C16 is a 16-item scale that is clinician-rated; it is designed to assess the severity of depressive symptoms. The QIDS-C16 total score ranges from 0-27. Scores ranging from 0 to 10 correspond with no to mild depression, while scores >/= 11 correspond to moderate to severe depression. A negative change indicates improvement in the subject's depression, and a positive change indicates a worsening of the subject's depression.

  • Number of subjects with improvement of depressive symptoms as shown by a score <6 on QIDS-C16 [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The QIDS-C16 is a 16-item scale that is clinician-rated; it is designed to assess the severity of depressive symptoms. The QIDS-C16 total score ranges from 0-27. Scores ranging from 0 to 10 correspond with no to mild depression, while scores >/= 11 correspond to moderate to severe depression. A negative change indicates improvement in the subject's depression, and a positive change indicates a worsening of the subject's depression.

  • Number of subjects with improvement of depressive symptoms as shown by score of "much" or "very much improved" on Clinical Global Impression - Improvement Scale [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The Clinical Global Impression - Improvement scale (CGI-I) is a 7 point scale that requires the clinician to assess how much the patient's illness has improved or worsened relative to a baseline state at the beginning of the intervention. and rated as: 1. Very much improved, 2. Much improved, 3. Minimally improved, 4. No change, 5. Minimally worse, 6. Much worse, 7. Very much worse

  • Improvement of depressive symptoms as shown by the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD-17) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The HAMD-17 is a 17-item scale that evaluates depressed mood, vegetative and cognitive symptoms of depression, and co-morbid anxiety symptoms. The 17 items are rated on either a 5-point (0-4) or a 3-point (0-2) scale. In general, the 5 point scale items use a rating of 0=absent; 1=doubtful to mild; 2=mild to moderate; 3=moderate to severe; 4=very severe. The 3-point scale items use a rating of 0=absent; 1=probable or mild; 2=definite. The total HAMD-17 score ranges from 0 (not ill) to 52 (severely ill). A negative change indicates improvement in the subject's depression/anxiety symptoms, and a positive change indicates a worsening of the subject's depression/anxiety symptoms.

  • Improvement of depressive symptoms [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Treatment adherence based on concordance vs. non-concordance of gene test results and clinical intervention.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: GeneSight guided treatment
GeneSight guided group will have their research psychiatrist make treatment recommendations based on AssureRx GeneSight genotyping results.

Active Comparator: Treatment as usual group
Treatment as usual group will have treatment recommendations based on clinical judgment
Other: Treatment as usual

Detailed Description:
Treatment seeking depressed patients (SCID confirmed major depressive disorder or bipolar I/II disorder) to the Mayo Clinic Depression Center will be invited to participate in this study evaluating the Assurex GeneSight® platform; this new technology can rapidly assess PK and PD genetic variation that can potentially impact antidepressant, antipsychotic, and stimulant associated treatment outcomes for depression. This study will recruit treatment seeking patients with major depression with an index episode of moderate symptom severity that has been unresponsive or poorly tolerated to at least one prior antidepressant treatment. This will be an 8-week, double-blind trial where depressed patients are randomized to testing results of GeneSight® (tricolored clinical report) prior to treatment selection (n=138) vs. treatment as usual (tricolored dummy report) (n=138). All testing results will be made available after the 8-week trial.
