Exploring the changing tide in managing depression

The KOASTAL program is investigating the effects of a study medicine intended to work in a new way to treat adults living with depression (also called Major Depressive Disorder or MDD). This study medicine is being evaluated to see whether it can improve the symptoms of depression, including feelings of having less interest or pleasure in the things you used to enjoy (this is called anhedonia, say an-hee-doh-nee-uh)
