Determinations of the affinity constants (KD) and number of binding sites (Bmax) for platelet vasopressin receptors were done in euthymic bipolar patients and normal volunteers. No significant differences were found between these groups. In addition, lithium treatment did not alter these receptor parameters in the bipolar group.
