Abstract The present study deals with estimation of levels of fractions of serum glycoproteins, protein bound hexose (PBH), protein bound hexosamine (PBHex), protein bound fucose (PBF), protein bound sialic acid (PBS) and protein bound carbohydrate (PBC) in thirty patients of Major Depressive Disorders (MDD) in comparison with thirty normal subjects. In patients of MDD, the level of PBH, PBHex, PBF, PBS and PBC were significantly higher as compared to the normal subjects (p<0.05). In patients, of MDD, after one-month treatment with fluoxetine, the levels of PBH, PBHex, PBF, PBS and PBC were significantly decreased as compared to the levels of these fractions in same patients of MDD before beginning of the treatment (p<0.05). Based on findings of the present study, it can be concluded that changes in the level of serum glycoproteins level before and after treatment with fluoxetine can be correlated with clinical status of MDD.
