Immunopharmacology Comments
Based on data indicating crosstalk between the immune system and depression, vortioxetine was investigated for potential antiinflammatory effects in human immune cells [3]. Results confirmed that vortioxetine was able to exert immunomodulatory effects on human monocytes and macrophages, an effect achieved by driving polarization of macrophages towards the M2 phenotype.
