Increased depressive ratings in patients with hepatitis C receiving interferon-alpha-based immunotherapy are related to interferon-alpha-induced changes in the serotonergic system.
TLDR
It is suggested that theIFN-alpha-induced changes in the serotonergic turnover could play a role in the development of IFN- alpha-induced depressive symptoms. Expand
