|Title:||Exploratory analysis of the serum ionomic profile for bipolar disorder and lithium treatment|
|Abstract:||In the present work, a very simple and fast experimental design using ICP-MS was employed to search for differentiations in the levels of free ions present in human blood serum samples obtained from healthy individuals (n = 25) and bipolar disorder (BD) patients under different treatments: (i) using lithium (n = 15) and (ii) using other drugs than lithium (n = 10). Fourteen ions that showed statistically significant alterations in its levels when comparing the studied groups were detected, providing a hint for further studies on BD and lithium treatment biomarker discovery.
