Medscape News Today - Metabolic Makeup May Predict Antidepressant Response

 – August 2, 2013  –– 

Scientists believe they have identified a metabolic signature that may help determine response to antidepressant treatment in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) according to a study published in the journal PLoS One. "Figuring out ways that we can predict who will respond and how effectively they will respond to an antidepressant is a huge area of interest,” said Scott Russo, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai who was not involved in the study.
