Abstract

Fifteen bipolar patients were compared with sixteen controls in an attempt to replicate the findings of Pettegrew et al. in 1982 of decreased fluidity in the hydrocarbon core of the erythrocyte membrane. No significant differences were seen between groups. The present control group shows very similar membrane characteristics to the original control series; however, the bipolar patient group is not similar. Possible explanations are discussed.
