Background. Depression is a remitting but recurring disease. However, there is a paucity of prospectively recorded data on the course of depression after recovery. Method. A multi-centre prospective serial follow-up study of an inception cohort of hitherto untreated unipolar major depression (N=95) for 6 years. We report the time to recurrence after recovery from the index depressive episode and their predictors. Results. The cumulative probability of remaining well without subthreshold… Expand
Recurrence of major depressive disorder: towards a model of risk
TLDR
Number of previous episodes and subclinical residual symptoms appear to be the most important predictors of recurrence in the general population and primary care on the recurrent course of major depressive disorder. Expand
Rates and predictors of remission, recurrence and conversion to bipolar disorder after the first lifetime episode of depression – a prospective 5-year follow-up study
TLDR
The identified clinical characteristics of the first lifetime episode of depression should guide patients and clinicians for long-term individualized tailored treatment. Expand
Long term outcome of primary care depression.
TLDR
The data suggest that long term risk of a recurrence may be high, but with recurrence delayed, and the course of primary care depression appears worse than suggested by previous, shorter follow ups. Expand
Long-term course of severe depression: late remission and recurrence may be found in a follow-up after 38–53 years
TLDR
Hredity for depression was significantly related to a chronic course with or without late remission, and perceived parental rearing behaviour, and treatment of index depressive episode were related to background variables. Expand
Prediction of remission in pharmacotherapy of untreated major depression: development and validation of multivariable prediction models
TLDR
Patients and clinicians can use these prediction models to estimate their predicted probability of achieving remission after acute antidepressant therapy, and the external validity of the derived prediction models with the second half of the cohort is examined. Expand
Residual symptoms after remission of major depressive disorder with citalopram and risk of relapse: a STAR*D report
TLDR
Patients with remission of MDD after treatment with citalopram continue to experience selected residual depressive symptoms, which increase the risk of relapse. Expand
Clinical differences between early and late remission in depressive patients.
TLDR
Comparing rates of remission after acute and continuation phase treatment and to determine the most common residual symptoms among remitted patients to compare the residual symptoms in early and late remitted and to identify factors that predict early or faster remission are compared. Expand
Is prior course of illness relevant to acute or longer-term outcomes in depressed out-patients? A STAR*D report
TLDR
Recurrent MDD is the norm for out-patients, of whom 15% also have a chronic index episode and chronic and recurrent course may be useful in predicting acute and long-term MDD treatment outcomes. Expand
Predicting relapse in major depression after successful initial pharmacological treatment.
TLDR
Logistic regression analysis showed that lower depressive mood and higher suicidal ideation upon development of the current depression episode, the presence of residual symptoms, and greater severity of side effects at remission may predict subsequent depression relapse. Expand
Recurrence of major depressive disorder across different treatment settings: results from the NESDA study.
TLDR
Health care professionals in both settings should be aware of the same risk factors since the recurrence risk and its predictors appeared to be similar across settings. Expand

Time to recovery of an inception cohort with hitherto untreated unipolar major depressive episodes.
TLDR
The authors' estimate of the episode length was 25-50% shorter than estimates reported in the literature, and the median time to recovery of the index episode after treatment commencement was 3 months. Expand
Remission and recurrence of depression in the maintenance era: long-term outcome in a Cambridge cohort
TLDR
The long-term outcome of depression still shows high recurrence rates and does not appear to have changed in the last 20 years, and greater severity of illness was the most consistent predictor of poor outcome. Expand
Pattern of recurrence of illness after recovery from an episode of major depression: a prospective study.
TLDR
Major depression has a high rate of recurrence, even when bipolar and psychotic cases are excluded, and the highest rate is observed during the first months after recovery from an episode. Expand
Recurrence after recovery from major depressive disorder during 15 years of observational follow-up.
TLDR
Female sex, a longer depressive episode before intake, more prior episodes, and never marrying were significant predictors of a recurrence of an affective disorder, but naturalistically applied levels of antidepressant treatment are well below those shown effective in maintenance pharmacotherapy studies. Expand
Recovery in major depressive disorder: analysis with the life table and regression models.
TLDR
Several clinical variables were statistically significant predictors of recovery when measured from entry into the study: superimposition of the acute episode on a chronic underlying depression, acuteness of onset of he depression, and severity of depression for the subgroup of patients without superimposed illness. Expand
Major depressive disorder: a prospective study of residual subthreshold depressive symptoms as predictor of rapid relapse.
TLDR
MDE recovery is a powerful predictor of time to episode relapse/recurrence andResidual SSD recovery is associated with very rapid episode relapse which supports the idea that SSD is an active state of illness. Expand

TLDR
Results are presented concerning the prediction of long-term outcome as represented by the Depression Outcome Scale (DOS), a measure specially constructed for this study. Expand
A prospective 12-year study of subsyndromal and syndromal depressive symptoms in unipolar major depressive disorders.
TLDR
The long-term weekly course of unipolar MDD is dominated by prolonged symptomatic chronicity, and MDD, MinD, and SSD symptom levels commonly alternate over time in the same patients as a symptomatic continuum of illness activity of a single clinical disease. Expand
Multiple recurrences of major depressive disorder.
TLDR
The number of lifetime episodes of major depression was significantly associated with the probability of recurrence, such that the risk of Recurrence increased by 16% with each successive recurrence and progressively decreased as the duration of recovery increased. Expand
Relapse prevention with antidepressant drug treatment in depressive disorders: a systematic review
TLDR
Continuing treatment with antidepressants in patients with depressive disorders who have responded to acute treatment reduced the odds of relapse by 70% and seemed to persist for up to 36 months, although most trials were of 12 months' duration, and so the evidence on longer-term treatment requires confirmation.
