3 Summary Aim The purpose of this study was to assess the correlations between blood biomarkers and depression and anxiety scores in apparently healthy individuals. Methods The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and State-Trait Anxiety Inventories (STAI) 1 and 2 were administered to a total of 120 research participants. A blood sample was also obtained from each participant for measurements of biomarkers (serotonin, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), high- sensitivity C-reactive protein… Expand

Vegetable Juices Improved Depression and Anxiety in Slightly Depressed Individuals
Methods: Sixty-six research participants were randomized to 3 groups: group A, plain vegetable juice; group B, vitamin-fortified vegetable and fruit juice; group C, control. Vegetable juices wereExpand
Amygdala fMRI Signal as a Predictor of Reaction Time
Exposure to threat modulates task performance and is influenced by personality trait, and activation in the amygdala predicts behavior in a simple task that is performed during the exposure to threat. Expand


BDNF serum levels, but not BDNF Val66Met genotype, are correlated with personality traits in healthy subjects
Abstract Consisting evidence in animal models has sug-gested that alterations in brain-derived neurotrophic factor(BDNF) brain expression and release are involved in thepathogenesis of mentalExpand
Prediction of the presence of atherosclerosis using high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and serotonin in apparently healthy subjects
By using the ABI/PWV test, the combination of serotonin and hsCRP is useful in identifying atherosclerosis, particularly in the early stages of the disease. Expand
Correlation Between Dietary Zinc Intakes and Its Serum Levels with Depression Scales in Young Female Students
In depressed female students, dietary zinc intake is correlated to its serum concentrations; however, the serum zinc levels are inversely correlated to depression scales. Expand
Zinc and Fatty Acids in Depression
The hypothesis of a general lack of Zn in depressive disorders is not confirmed, but Zn concentrations differed dependent on comorbid disorders and severity of depression. Expand
Serum Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, Depression, and Antidepressant Medications: Meta-Analyses and Implications
Findings provide strong evidence to suggest that serum BDNF levels are abnormally low in patients suffering from major depressive disorder and that the BDNF Levels are elevated following a course of antidepressant treatment. Expand
Depression and C-reactive protein in US adults: data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
Major depression is strongly associated with increased levels of CRP among men and could help explain the increased risk of cardiovascular disease associated with depression in men. Expand
Reduced whole blood serotonin in major depression
Whole blood serotonin (WBS) was measured in 17 patients with DSM‐III‐R major depression and compared to a healthy control group of 57. Values were significantly lower in the depressed group, butExpand
Use of folic acid and vitamin supplementation among adults with depression and anxiety: a cross-sectional, population-based survey
The prevalence and the likelihood of taking folic acid and vitamin supplements varied substantially by a history of diagnosed depression among both men and women and by aHistory of diagnosed anxiety among men, but not by presence of elevated depressive symptoms in either sex. Expand
Depression, osteoporosis, serotonin and cell membrane viscosity between biology and philosophical anthropology
This work studies the depression-osteoporosis relationship, with the aim of focusing on depressive disorders that concern the quantitative dynamic of platelet membrane viscosity and interactome cytoskeleton modifications as a possible condition of the involvement of the serotonin axis (gut, brain and platelet), not only in depression but also in connection with osteoporotic.

No clear potentiation of antidepressant medication effects by folic acid+vitamin B12 in a large community sample.
There was little evidence for the potentiation of antidepressant medication by folic acid+B12 supplementation on depressive symptomatology, and further research should examine whether effects might be found at higher folic Acid dosages or among clinical populations. Expand
