Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other healthcare professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

During the past decade, there has been renewed interest in the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis, phenomenology, comorbidity, and treatment of mood disorders. The novel insights from both basic and clinical research provide empirical evidence to support the hypothesis that inflammation may also account for neuroprogression and cognitive impairment in individuals with mood disorders. Taken together, these observations provide the rationale for evaluating "anti-inflammatory treatments" for individuals with mood disorders. This presentation will review results from recently completed trials indicating that anti-inflammatory agents are possibly effective treatment avenues for adults with mood disorders.
