Core Tip Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is more efficient and safer in treating severe major depressive disorder (MDD) compared to medication and/or therapy. Here, ECT led to more pronounced improvements in depressive symptoms, quality of life, and cognitive function than non-ECT treatments. Additionally, ECT affected biomarkers related to neuroplasticity (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) and inflammation (interleukin-6). These findings highlight the potential of ECT as a therapeutic approach for individuals with severe MDD who do not respond to conventional treatments. By providing evidence of its beneficial outcomes, this study aimed to address the stigmatization surrounding ECT and facilitate its broader adoption in clinical practice.
