Background and objectives: The evidence for efficacy of light therapy in non-seasonal depression remains controversial. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of bright light therapy when it was combined with antidepressant treatment in the course of major depressive disorder without seasonal pattern. The secondary aim was to assess the inflammatory response to bright light therapy.
