    Originally, the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (CGI-I) (Guy W 1976)was designed as a 7-item scale used to assess how much the patient's illness had improved or worsened relative to a baseline state at the beginning of the intervention.(1, very much improved; 2, much improved; 3, minimally improved; 4, no change; 5, minimally worse; 6, much worse; or 7, very much worse.)

A value of 1 (considered a response) was assigned for very much improved (at least 85% improvement) & much improved (at least 60% improvement). A value of 0 (considered non-response) was assigned for: minimally improved (at least 20-25% improvement), no change (between ±15% change), minimally worse (at least 20-55% worse), much worse (at least 60% worse), and very much worse (at least 80% worse). No score was assigned if the investigator did not provide a categorical rating at a particular follow-up visit.

Study Comparing Outcomes for Patients With Treatment Resistant Depression Who Receive VNS Therapy at Different Doses
Randomized Comparison of Outcomes in Patients With Treatment-Resistant Depression Who Receive VNS Therapy Administered at Different Amounts of Electrical Charge

This is a postmarket medical device study. The objective of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) Therapy administered at different amounts of electrical charge for the treatment of patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD).

This is a postmarket medical device study. This study will examine treatment outcomes for patients with TRD who are randomized to VNS Therapy administered at different amounts of electrical charge. The Sponsor, Cyberonics, provides funding for this study. Patients are followed for 54 weeks, 50 of those weeks are following implantation of the VNS Therapy system. No study sites will be permitted to enroll study subjects until Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval has been received. Sites are permitted to be approved by a local or a central IRB.
