Levels of plasma norepinephrine (NE), free 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG), and cortisol in adolescents with major depressive disorder (10 girls, 1 boy; mean +/- SD age = 16.4 +/- 1.6 years, range = 14-19 years) did not differ significantly from those in a group of healthy adolescents (17 girls, 12 boys; mean +/- SD age = 15.9 +/- 1.5 years, range =(More)

The rate and degree of iodination were greatly improved by sonication of the cells. A balanced salt solution was a more favourable medium than phosphate buffer for the(More)
