Acute and longer-term outcomes in depressed outpatients requiring one or several treatment steps: a STAR*D report.
When more treatment steps are required, lower acute remission rates (especially in the third and fourth treatment steps) and higher relapse rates during the follow-up phase are to be expected.

Acute and Longer- Term Outcomes in Depressed Outpatients Requiring One or Several Treatment Steps: A STAR*D Report
The acute and longer-term treatment outcomes associated with each of four successive steps in the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) trial are described and compared.

The Antidepressant Treatment History Form is presented as one method to formalize the evaluation of treatment adequacy and treatment resistance.
A prospective, randomized, double-blind comparison of bilateral and right unilateral electroconvulsive therapy at different stimulus intensities.
Right unilateral ECT at high dosage is as effective as a robust form of BL ECT, but produces less severe and persistent cognitive effects.

increasing the electrical dosage increases the efficacy of right unilateral electroconvulsive therapy, although not to the level of bilateral therapy, and unilateral treatment is associated with less severe cognitive side effects after treatment.
Sequenced treatment alternatives to relieve depression (STAR*D): rationale and design.
Effects of pulse width and electrode placement on the efficacy and cognitive effects of electroconvulsive therapy
Daily left prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy for major depressive disorder: a sham-controlled randomized trial.
Daily left prefrontal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation as monotherapy produced statistically significant and clinically meaningful antidepressant therapeutic effects greater than sham.
Report by the ACNP Task Force on Response and Remission in Major Depressive Disorder
Recommendations suggest that symptom ratings that measure all nine criterion symptom domains to define a major depressive episode are preferred as they provide a more certain ascertainment of remission.
