Blumenthal, J.A., et al., Exercise and pharmacotherapy in the treatment of major depressive disorder. Psychosom Med, 2007. 69(7):

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether patients receiving aerobic exercise training performed either at home or in a supervised group setting achieve reductions in depression comparable to standard antidepressant medication (sertraline) and greater reductions in depression compared to placebo controls. METHODS: Between October 2000 and November 2005, we performed a prospective, randomized controlled trial (SMILE study) with allocation concealment and blinded outcome assessment in a tertiary care teaching hospital. A total of 202 adults (153 women; 49 men) diagnosed with major depression were assigned randomly to one of four conditions: supervised exercise in a group setting; home-based exercise; antidepressant medication (sertraline, 50-200 mg daily); or placebo pill for 16 weeks. Patients underwent the structured clinical interview for depression and completed the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D). RESULTS: After 4 months of treatment, 41% of the participants achieved remission, defined as no longer meeting the criteria for major depressive disorder (MDD) and a HAM-D score of <8. Patients receiving active treatments tended to have higher remission rates than the placebo controls: supervised exercise = 45%; home-based exercise = 40%; medication = 47%; placebo = 31% (p = .057). All treatment groups had lower HAM-D scores after treatment; scores for the active treatment groups were not significantly different from the placebo group (p = .23). CONCLUSIONS: The efficacy of exercise in patients seems generally comparable with patients receiving antidepressant medication and both tend to be better than the placebo in patients with MDD. Placebo response rates were high, suggesting that a considerable portion of the therapeutic response is determined by patient expectations, ongoing symptom monitoring, attention, and other nonspecific factors.
Diese prospektive, randomisierte Studie vergleicht die Therapieresultate von 200 Patienten mit Major Depressive Disorder (61% leicht, 39% mittelschwer-schwer) in 4 verschiedenen Behandlungsgruppen (Placebo / SSRI / selbständiges resp. betreutes aerobes Training) über 4 Monate. Die Remissionsrate unter Trainingtherapie ist vergleichbar gut wie bei einer medikamentösen Mono-Behandlung. Die Studie ist sorgfältig gemacht, Trotz offener Fragen betreffend Verallgemeinerung der Resultate ist sie von sehr grossem Interesse. Sie zeigt, dass eine frühzeitige körperliche Aktivierung quasi „endogen“ einen äquivalenten Effekt zu einer antidepressiv-medikamentösen Behandlung haben kann. Die Relevanz für die Versicherungsmedizin liegt u.a. in der häufig zu beobachtenden vollständigen Passivität, in die Patienten bei Krankschreibung fallen, was einen möglichen iatrogen verstärkenden Faktor bei der Depression darstellen kann. Vieles spricht dafür, dass sich eine konsequente körperliche Aktivierung positiv auf die Depression auswirkt, was in der Therapie und bezüglich Dauer/Ausmass der Krankschreibung berücksichtigt werden sollte.
