Depression and its Effects discussed in Dubai at a Global Conference

DubaiInnovative treatment options for have been discussed on Friday by one hundred healthcare professionals from across the Gulf in . Les Laboratoires Servier organized the event which showed new therapies that are now available for the first time in the Gulf. Dr. Adel Karrani, Assistant Head of Psychiatry at Rashid Hospital in Dubai attended the conference where he highlighted the significance of the introduction of this new treatment to the region saying that “Depression remains somewhat of a quiet subject across the GCC, and as a result, many cases go undiagnosed each year. Mental illness is still perceived by many as an imaginary disease which results in an overall lack of awareness and education on the subject”.

He added “Depression is a debilitating disease, with real physical and emotional symptoms and I would estimate that we receive no fewer than 4,000 cases of depression in our clinic at Rashid Hospital each year. To have such a large congregation of Gulf-based healthcare professionals here today truly speaks to the importance of this issue. We are delighted to launch this new therapy across the Gulf, and look forward to the benefits it will undoubtedly offer doctors and patients throughout the region”.

Prof. Siegfried Kasper from Vienna University submitted data on major international studies showing the enhanced treatment properties of the new antidepressant known as over traditional antidepressants. Prof. Kasper explained: “From the very first week of treatment, Agomelatine provided significant clinical improvement as reported by both doctors and patients. More precisely, patients themselves reported feeling better, with improved daytime functioning, as early as the first week of treatment.”
