Depression and inflammation

Just a quick link to a case report I published recently - the association might appear a bit tenuous, with various other explanations to account for the observation some might say, but still it describes an interesting finding in keeping with the current evidence about the neuroimmunology of depression, and might generate some further research into mirtazapine's mode of action.

What went wrong?

Granted nobody has been proven guilty yet, but how sad if the following charges were to be proven true;


The suspects include "Jae-don Fearon, 20" - and the reason it would be especially sad would be that it was not so long ago that the same (presumably), then-teenage Jae-Don was active as a campaigner against gun-crime following the shooting of his father


and indeed lauded as an  "exceptional teenager"


Interesting change of attitude to violence, if the allegations are found to be true - well I thought so anyway.
