Özet

Objective: The increase in the circulatory cytokine levels observed in patients with bipolar disorder (BD) may imply involvement of inflammation in the pathogenesis of mood disorders. However, the association between the inflammatory process and the stage and severity of illness is not well understood. In this study, our aim was to investigate the association between neuroinflammation and disease progression in the clinical course of BD.
