Depression can be a debilitating and chronic illness characterised by a broad spectrum of emotional and physical symptoms. Despite the availability of numerous methods of treatment, those suffering from depression are usually treated with one or more antidepressant medications, however, not all patients respond sufficiently well. Therefore, achievement of consistent and favourable long-term treatment methods is still an unmet medical need.
