    Interesting thanku kaffiend.

    Here's the link to the published paper, for anyone who is interested, but only the abstract is available for free:

    Assessment of a multi-assay, serum-based biological diagnostic test for major depressive disorder: a Pilot and Replication Study
    G I Papakostas, R C Shelton, G Kinrys, M E Henry, B R Bakow, S H Lipkin, B Pi, L Thurmond and J A Bilello
    Molecular Psychiatry , (13 December 2011) | doi:10.1038/mp.2011.166

    My cynical guess is that this sort of research won't attract funding for large scale trials, because psychiatrists won't want their power, which is associated with being able to diagnose psychiatric conditions, taken away from them. So psychiatrists sitting on funding committees will possibly block funding, as they have done with ME. But it's just a guess, and I'd love to be proved wrong.
