This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Nearly 5.7 million adult Americans are affected by bipolar disorder according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Bipolar disorder (BD) is a recurrent chronic disorder characterized by fluctuations in mood. Those suffering from bipolar disorder are at crossroads, suffering a major personal, social and economic burden. Currently, there lacks of definitive diagnostic tools for psychiatric disorders. Psychiatry continues to rely on a non-biologically based, diagnostic classification. Identification of biologically relevant markers could improve the quality of life of patients with bipolar disorder and revolutionize public health. Biomarkers in Bipolar Disorders summarizes the cutting-edge findings in biomarkers research in Bipolar Disorders, emphasizing the most promising findings, tools and technologies relevant to drug development and personalized medicine. Key findings emphasizing different levels of evidence such as genes, molecules, cells, systems, brain and behavior related to diagnosis (state and trait/endophenotypes), prediction of treatment response and follow-up outcomes with as well as the most promising perspectives in each area are included in the book. Each section includes a comprehensive and focused overview on the state of the art and perspectives. The book concludes with a section on practical applications, encompassing diagnostics development (genetic testing, biomarkers), and new drug development. Edited by Dr. Rodrigo Machado-Vieira and Dr. Jair C. Soares, and contributed by leading experts in the field of biomarker research, this book will be become the leading tool for all researchers and clinicians in Bipolar Disorder. Describes strategies for biomarker discovery of relevant proteins differentially expressed in Bipolar Disorder Presents techniques and main findings in transcriptome research related to CNS synaptic function Provides an overview on the current behavioral strategies and their validity in drug development in Bipolar Disorder Discusses current genetic findings integrating tests for treatments leading to personalized treatments in the management of Bipolar Disorder
