"New research by Brown University psychiatrists found as many as 85 percent of depressed patients treated in an outpatient setting would be excluded from the typical study to determine whether an antidepressant works."

The exclusion criteria are set by bodies entirely independent of the pharmaceutical companies, in order to provide the most clear-cut evidence for or against efficacy. Exclusion criteria are to minimize confounds. There's nothing sinister about it.
