Regional brain glucose uptake distinguishes suicide attempters from non-attempters in major depression.
Sublette, M.~~Milak, M.~~et al.
This study compared regional cerebral metabolic rates of glucose (rCMRglu) determined by 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in suicide attempters and non-attempters. Medication-free patients with major depression (n = 29) had FDG-PET after single-blind administration of placebo (day 1) and fenfluramine (day 2).
