Abstract

Background: Bipolar disorder-I (BD-I) is a complex illness, and multiple genes and environmental factors determine its pathogenesis. Several studies have ascertained that BD-I and inflammation are linked through shared genetic polymorphisms and gene expression, as well as altered cytokine levels. COX-2 gene polymorphisms affecting COX-2 levels may be associated with BD-I by altering the inflammatory response.
