The "monocyte-T-cell theory of mood disorders" regards neuroinflammation, i.e. marked activation of microglia, as a driving force in bipolar disorder. Microglia activation can be visualized in vivo using [(11)C]-(R)-PK11195 PET. Indirect evidence suggests the hippocampus as a potential focus of...

The benefit of HILIC over traditional reversed-phase chromatography is two-fold for both sample introduction and analyte detection. First, the high acetonitrile concentration of HILIC mobile phases allows for direct analysis of precipitated plasma samples without the need for additional sample solvent exchange. Second, the high acetonitrile content provides increased analyte response in positive ESI MS detection.
