Electroconvulsive Therapy: Results in Depressive Illness From the Leicestershire Trial
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1984 Jan 7; 288(6410): 22-25.
A double blind trial of electroconvulsive therapy in 138 patients with depressive disorders is described. After the patients consented in writing to electroconvulsive therapy, they were given oral and written information about the study and were asked to sign another consent form. They were then randomly allocated to a four-week course of real or simulated therapy. At the end of the trial, the patients who had received real treatment were found to have made significantly greater improvement than the patients who had received simulated treatment. (KIE abstract)
