Various psychological, genetic, and biochemical factors are thought to be involved in the aetiology of pediatric bipolar disorder (PBD). However, few studies have evaluated the biochemical basis of PBD. The level of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and serum prolidase activity were determined in PBD and matched healthy comparison subjects.
