"One Molecule Opens the Door to New Treatments for Depression" (very interesting research finding)

I read about a new research study of Depression and Anxiety yesterday and thought it might be of some interest.I won't bother to rewrite the whole thing in this post but instead give a quoted excerpt from the study so you can decide for your self if you would like  to click the link to find out more.

"One Molecule Opens the Door to New Treatments for Depression"

"A discovery by EPFL’s Brain Mind Institute may engender potential new ways of treating depression and anxiety.
There has been little progress in the way we treat depression and anxiety for over thirty years, but a recent study at EPFL Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) may open the door to new strategies. In an article published online February 23, 2010, in Molecular Psychiatry,researchers from two laboratories at the Brain Mind Institute at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) explain how understanding the functioning of a molecule called MIF, or macrophage migration inhibitory factor, may change the way we treat depression."

Remember that the above is a  quoted excerpt  from another article,I don't necessarily agree or disagree with the findings I just thought that it was an interesting study.

The full article can be read by following the link above.
