Depression as an autoimmune disease....

Posted by mtom on April 24, 2019, at 18:24:46

I thought I posted this recently but can't find it so apologize if it's a double post.

I had an interesting chat with my GP who is very open-minded and attends lots of conferences.

She told me of a discussion she recently had with a P-Doc Researcher at a conference. This P-Doc told her that depression is increasingly being shown to be autoimmune, and that she believes in future biologics, similar to those used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis, will be major medications in treating depression.

I know the "inflammatory theory" of depression has been around for some years (autoimmunity causes inflammation), and interest in this theory has been growing.

Sharing, and interested in thoughts, comments....
