WILMINGTON, Del, Tuesday May 24 2005 AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) today announced additional findings at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) from the BOLDER (BipOLar DEpRession) trial, a large-scale study that examined SEROQUEL as a treatment for depressive episodes in patients with bipolar I and II disorders.
