Study finds may improve prediction of response to drug therapy in bipolar patients

Getting diagnosed and receiving effective treatment for bipolar disorder is crucial, as it can negatively impact education, work status, family relationships, and even lead to suicide. Dr. Shani Stern (Sagol Department of Neurobiology), in collaboration with researchers from the Weizmann Institute and Dalhousie University, is leading a research initiative that is using information theory-derived features to restore brain cells that may indicate patients’ responses to psychiatric drugs. The study was published in the scientific journal Bipolar Disorders. The research was presented for the first time at a scientific conference organized by Teva Pharmaceutical showcasing the company’s scientific collaborations with academia and the community. This conference featured presentations by leading Israeli scientists in the fields ranging from neuroscience to immunotherapy.
