Purpose/Long-title of study: Interleukin 6 Inhibition in Inflamed Depression: The Insight Study


Research suggests inflammation may cause depression, but precise mechanisms are unknown. The main objectives of this study are to test whether interleukin 6 (IL-6), a pro-inflammatory protein, contributes to pathogenesis of depression, and to examine potential mechanisms by which IL-6 affects mood and cognition. A secondary objective is to compare depressed participants with and without evidence of low-grade systemic inflammation.

•Age between 20-65 years

•Diagnosis of depression
