Abstract 1. 1. Zimelidine is a new bicyclic compound which causes relatively selective inhibition of serotonin uptake, and little effect on noradrenaline uptake in central nervous system neurones. 2. 2. An uncontrolled study of zimelidine in five patients diagnosed as suffering from endogenous depression is reported. 3. 3. There was sufficient evidence of an antidepressant effect to justify a full scale controlled clinical trial of zimelidine. 4. 4. Few side effects were observed.
