Immune-inflammatory markers and their correlations were examined in patients with major depression. Plasma concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6), soluble IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R), soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R), transferrin receptor (TfR), C-reactive protein (CRP), and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), as well as the microheterogeneity of AGP, were(More)
This study was performed on 32 patients with refractory depression in whom lithium was added to antidepressant treatment in order to potentiate the therapeutic effect, and in 20 healthy controls. Plasma concentration of three acute-phase proteins (APPs): C-reactive protein, alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) and alpha-1-antichymotrypsin (ACT) as well as(More)
Serum alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) concentration and its microheterogeneity were measured in 46 patients with major depressive disorder and in 20 age- and sex-matched controls. The changes in major microheterogeneity of AGP were expressed as reactivity coefficient (AGP-RC). Also measured were the levels of C-reactive protein as well as leukocyte,(More)
The study was designed to investigate the antimanic profile of carbamazepine as a first-line drug in affective or schizoaffective disorders, to correlate the clinical efficacy with the plasma level of carbamazepine and its 10,11-epoxide metabolite, and to test the potential value of monitoring the salivary level. It was administered alone for 3 weeks to 21(More)
Chronic exposure to mild unpredictable stress (CMS) has previously been found to decrease hedonic responsiveness, as measured by the consumption of palatable sweet solutions or sensitivity to brain stimulation reward. These effects are reversed by chronic treatment with antidepressant drugs, and the CMS procedure has been proposed as a relatively valid(More)
