UC Studies Natural Supplement to Treat Depression

Cincinnati—A new application of a well-known nutritional supplement derived from fish oil may help people who suffer from depression. University of Cincinnati (UC) biological psychiatrists will study the effectiveness of treating depression with fish oil capsules containing omega-3 fatty acids. UC researchers are offering this natural remedy to eligible volunteers free of charge in hope that it will bring relief for their depression.

"This study may shed new light on alternative therapies that may provide an effective treatment to those who suffer depression and had unpleasant side effects with traditional treatments," says Lesley Arnold, MD, coinvestigator of the study and associate professor of psychiatry at the UC College of Medicine. Interested volunteers who have been diagnosed with depression may find out if they qualify to participate in this study by calling Natalie at (513) 558-3249.
