Measurements of brain-derived neurotrophic factor: Methodological aspects and demographical data
Although numerous studies have dealt with changes in blood brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), methodological issues about BDNF measurements have only been incompletely resolved. We validatedExpand

The BDNF Val66Met polymorphism: Relation to familiar risk of affective disorder, BDNF levels and salivary cortisol
BACKGROUND Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis are considered to play an important role in the pathophysiology of affective disorders. The aimExpand

Activation of glucocorticoid receptors increases 5-HT2A receptor levels
Major depression is associated with both dysregulation of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and serotonergic deficiency, not the least of the 5-HT2A receptor. However, how these phenomena areExpand

Solid-Phase Extraction and HPLC/DAD for the Determination of Some Pesticides in Wine
Abstract A simple multiresidue analytical method for determination of the pesticides: terbuthylazine, napropamide, folpet, and phosmet in wine, is described. Solid-phase extraction, using ENVI-CarbExpand

Whole blood BDNF levels in healthy twins discordant for affective disorder: association to life events and neuroticism.
BACKGROUND Depression has been associated with decreased blood BDNF concentrations; but it is unclear if low blood BDNF levels are a state or a trait marker of depression. METHODS We investigatedExpand

Selective immunolesion of cholinergic neurons leads to long-term changes in 5-HT2A receptor levels in hippocampus and frontal cortex
Although loss of cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain is considered a key initial feature in Alzheimer's disease (AD), changes in other transmitter systems, including serotonin and 5-HT(2A)Expand

Cerebral 5-HT2A Receptor and Serotonin Transporter Binding in Humans Are Not Affected by the val66met BDNF Polymorphism Status or Blood BDNF Levels
Recent studies have proposed an interrelation between the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) val66met polymorphism and the serotonin system. In this study, we investigated whether the BDNFExpand
