The red blood cell lithium/plasma lithium ratio. Significance in recurrent affective illness



The red blood cell lithium/plasma lithium ratio. Significance in recurrent affective illness



Medical Journal of Australia 1(13): 631-632



The red blood cell lithium/plasma lithium ratio in patients diagnosed as suffering from unipolar and bipolar affective illness has been investigated and a comparison made between responders and non-responders. No correlation could be demonstrated between the lithium ratio and the effectiveness of lithium treatment.
