Exciting Advancements in Medication

A team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California has trained a computer to be able to predict those with bipolar who will (or will not) be responsive to lithium treatments. Lithium is considered a miracle treatment for bipolar; but, unfortunately, only 30 percent of people taking it reap those benefits. Using a few cells and a powerful computer, the team has developed a method that is accurate 92 percent of the time. Breakthroughs like this are crucial to finding a better way to find the right medicine. Read the full article here. Learn more about the Salk Institute.
