The publication of the results of the Treatment for Adolescents With
Depression Study1 (TADS) in this issue of JAMA
is certainly timely in view of recent and widely publicized controversies
regarding treating adolescents with depression.2- 4 Beyond

treatments. As is usually the case with good research, the study provides
important answers but also raises several important questions.
