Depression outcomes of Spanish- and English-speaking Hispanic outpatients in the STAR*D.
Lesser, I.~~Zisook, S.~~et al.
Compared with English-speaking Hispanic patients, Spanish-speaking Hispanic patients may have a less robust response to antidepressants. The reasons for this are not clear but may include more disadvantaged social status. The degree to which these results can be generalized to other Hispanic populations or to other non-English-speaking groups remains to be seen.
