The present study aimed to investigate the anti-depressive effect of the traditional Chinese medicine Allium macrostemon in a rat model of depression induced by exposure to chronic immobilization stress. Lipid and acylcarnitine metabolism were set into the focus of this study due to their key role in the pathogenesis of depression. Plasma lipid profiling… CONTINUE READING
