Serotonin receptors: Implications for depression and its treatment

AuthorsCastañé, Anna ; Artigas, Francesc
Issue Date5-Jun-2019
Citation14th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry (2019)
AbstractObjective: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a psychiatric syndrome with a high socioeconomic impact, due to its high prevalence and to the limited efficacy of treatments. Antidepressant efficacy depends, to a large extent, on the synaptic availability of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) even for fast-acting strategies such as ketamine. However, blockade of the 5-HT transporter (SERT), as evoked by most antidepressant drugs (TCAs, SSRI, SNRI, etc.) is insufficient by itself to improve symptoms in many patients. The aim of the present talk is to describe the principal serotonergic mechanisms that facilitate or slow the antidepressant response.
