About Depression
Depression is a serious illness that affects about 20 million Americans annually.  People with depression may experience a range of physically and emotionally debilitating symptoms, including anxiousness, sadness, irritability, fatigue, changes in sleep patterns, loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities and digestive problems.  It is estimated that about four million patients do not benefit from standard treatments for depression, even after repeated treatment attempts. 

About the Study
The study was designed to assess the long-term effectiveness of NeuroStar TMS Therapy in a naturalistic clinical practice settings over 52 weeks following a clinically beneficial acute treatment course. The study population spanned 42 clinical practices with a cumulative total of 307 patients with a primary diagnosis of unipolar, non-psychotic major depressive disorder, who had failed to receive benefit from prior antidepressant medication. 

NeuroStar TMS Therapy was administered to patients as determined by the evaluating physician, consistent with labeled use.  Patients who received benefit from acute NeuroStar TMS Therapy were tapered from their TMS regimen and observed through 52 weeks of follow-up.  Clinical assessments (CGI-Severity of Illness, PHQ-9 and IDS-SR) were obtained at three, six, nine and twelve months.  Concurrent medication use and TMS reintroduction for recurrent symptoms was recorded and summarized during the long-term follow up.

Compared with baseline, there was a statistically significant reduction in mean [SD] CGI-S, PHQ-9 and IDS-SR total scores at the end of acute treatment (5.1 [0.9] versus 3.2 [1.5], 18.3 [5.2] versus 9.6 [7.0], and 45.7 [11.0] versus 27.4 [15.8], all P<0.0001), which was sustained throughout the 52 week follow-up (3.0 [1.5], 9.4 [7.2], and 27.3 [16.1], all P<0
