Study to assess a potential diagnostic blood test for depression
The purpose of this study is:
- To confirm a test that measures blood proteins can correctly diagnose whether a depressed person has bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, or major depressive disorder.
- To investigate whether the blood test can predict response to antidepressant treatment over 8 weeks.
If you are currently experiencing depression, are between the ages of 18 and 70, and have bipolar disorder, you may be eligible to participate in a research study at the University of Minnesota to help researchers better understand and diagnose depression.
Participants will be compensated up to $300 for their complete participation.
