BACKGROUND Inflammation is believed to play a role in the pathogenesis of both cardiovascular disease and depressive disorders. We hypothesized that circulating concentrations of the novel inflammatory and cardiovascular biomarkers osteoprotegerin (OPG) and adiponectin as well as high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) are associated with the severity of depressive symptoms and presence of major depressive disorder (MDD). METHODS In a cross-sectional population-derived study (Akershus… CONTINUE READING
