Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Abstract
    Bipolar disorder (BP) is a chronic, debilitating illness that affects 0.4% to 4% of the US population. The first nosological efforts describing BP appeared in the early 2nd century ad and culminated in Kraepelin’s eloquent description of its phenomenology in his 1921 textbook on manic-depressive insanity. Nevertheless, the course and underlying pathophysiology of BP remain elusive.
