Sep 22, Tue, Chronic Depression
Dr. Jack Jacobs. It’s estimated that 16.2 million adults in the US, or 6.7 percent of American adults, have had at least one major depressive episode in a given year. Recent research has indicated that the fibroblast growth factor family of proteins, including FGF-1, play important roles in the control of mood and emotions. It has been shown that the levels of FGF-1 drop dramatically in patients that suffer from chronic depression and restoring FGF-1 back to normal levels in the brain represents an attractive therapy to test in patients with major depression.
