Low Acetyl-L-Carnitine a New Biomarker for Major Depression?

"In rodent experiments led by Dr Nasca, both here at Rockefeller and elsewhere previously, a deficiency of acetyl-L-carnitine was associated with depression-like behavior," McEwen said in the press release.

"They also showed that [LAC] is one of the vital connecting biomarkers in developing depression as a reaction to stress," Rasgon added in speaking to Medscape Medical News.

Interestingly, LAC supplementation administered intravenously or orally to the rats who had depression-like traits led to "rapid and lasting antidepressant-like effects."
