Brief Summary: Despite the known efficacy of pharmacotherapy (i.e. antidepressants) and psychotherapeutic interventions in treating depressive disorders, research evidence suggests that 20% to 40% of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) do not respond adequately to such treatments. These patients are diagnosed with Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD), and are sometimes treated with convulsive therapy. However, about 10-30% of TRD patients do not respond to convulsive therapy, and are thus diagnosed with Ultra-Resistant Depression (URD). Using an open label pilot study involving subjects, this trial aims to assess the safety, tolerability, and clinical effects of intranasal ketamine (IN) treatment in patients who do not respond to convulsive therapy. Intranasal ketamine (IN) treatment approach has shown promising therapeutic outcomes for patients with TRD, but has not yet been studied on patients with URD.
