Twenty one patients with obsessive – compulsive disorder were randomly assigned to three groups: cognitive – behavioral , clomipramine, and combined cognitive – behavioral and clomipramine treatment groups. Treatment outcomes were analyzed with a 3x3 split-plot design using univariate analysis of variance with repeated measures.
