The social and economic effects of manic depressive illness and of its treatment in lithium clinics. (1/2554)

Advising about the employment of those who have had manic depressive episodes requires Occupational Health Physicians to obtain, with consent, an objective account of previous episodes and to appreciate the enormous range of manic and depressive manifestations. Familiarity is needed with the likely effects of treatment of episodes and the benefits and problems of prophylaxis--not just in general but in individual cases, for example, where driving is required. This article summarizes research into the effects of lithium preparations on the course of the illness, thyroid and renal function and the risk of suicide. The author found that changing from treatment of episodes to continuous prophylaxis benefited employment and personal relationships without causing body weight problems. Many patients do well in life if supported by an experienced professional team, with 61% requiring no further admissions once on lithium, and with an 86% reduction in admissions achieved in our local clinic.  (+info)

Sustained antidepressant effect of sleep deprivation combined with pindolol in bipolar depression. A placebo-controlled trial. (2/2554)

Total sleep deprivation (TSD) shows powerful but transient clinical effects in patients affected by bipolar depression. Pindolol blocks the serotonergic 5-HT1A autoreceptor, thus improving the antidepressant effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. We evaluated the interaction of TSD and pindolol in the treatment of acute episodes of bipolar depression. Forty bipolar depressed inpatients were randomized to receive pindolol 7.5 mg/day or placebo for nine days in combination with three consecutive TSD cycles. Pindolol significantly improved the antidepressant effect of TSD, and prevented the short-term relapse after treatment. The response rate (HDRS scores < 8) at the end of treatment was 15/20 for pindolol, and 3/20 for placebo. Coadministration of pindolol and TSD resulted in a complete response, which could be sustained for six months with lithium salts alone, in 65% of cases. This results suggest a major role for serotonergic transmission in the mechanism of action of TSD, and makes TSD treatment more effective in the treatment of bipolar depression.  (+info)

A note on power approximations for the transmission/disequilibrium test. (3/2554)

The transmission/disequilibrium test (TDT) is a popular method for detection of the genetic basis of a disease. Investigators planning such studies require computation of sample size and power, allowing for a general genetic model. Here, a rigorous method is presented for obtaining the power approximations of the TDT for samples consisting of families with either a single affected child or affected sib pairs. Power calculations based on simulation show that these approximations are quite precise. By this method, it is also shown that a previously published power approximation of the TDT is erroneous.  (+info)

Acute barium intoxication following ingestion of ceramic glaze. (4/2554)

A case of deliberate overdose of barium sulphide in a psychiatric setting is presented, with resulting flaccid paralysis, malignant arrhythmia, respiratory arrest and severe hypokalaemia, but ultimately with complete recovery. The degree of paralysis appears to be related directly to serum barium levels. The value of early haemodialysis, particularly with respiratory paralysis and hypokalaemia, is emphasised.  (+info)

Pharmacogenetics of lithium response in bipolar disorder. (5/2554)

Lithium is the first-line treatment for bipolar disorder. In the past, genetic studies have attempted to identify factors associated with positive treatment response or side effects. Several research groups have shown that familial factors, family history of primary bipolar disorder, and negative family history of schizophrenia in particular, correlate well with prophylactic lithium response. Conversely, studies of lithium responsive patients and their families can assist genetic research of bipolar disorder. Lithium responders appear to suffer from a form of bipolar disorder that is more genetically based and more homogeneous. In a series of family studies, the author and his colleagues have confirmed the differences in family histories of lithium responders and nonresponders and shown that the mode of inheritance in lithium responders is compatible with a major-gene model. Subsequently, they initiated an international collaborative study to map the gene(s) predisposing to the illness or treatment response, or both, using both linkage and association strategies. To date, a sample of 32 families, 138 unrelated patients and 163 control subjects has been studied. In these studies, they found support for the role of phospholipase C in lithium responsive bipolar disorder.  (+info)

A high-density genome scan detects evidence for a bipolar-disorder susceptibility locus on 13q32 and other potential loci on 1q32 and 18p11.2. (6/2554)

Bipolar disorder is a severe mental illness characterized by mood swings of elation and depression. Family, twin, and adoption studies suggest a complex genetic etiology that may involve multiple susceptibility genes and an environmental component. To identify chromosomal loci contributing to vulnerability, we have conducted a genome-wide scan on approximately 396 individuals from 22 multiplex pedigrees by using 607 microsatellite markers. Multipoint nonparametric analysis detected the strongest evidence for linkage at 13q32 with a maximal logarithm of odds (lod) score of 3.5 (P = 0. 000028) under a phenotype model that included bipolar I, bipolar II with major depression, schizoaffective disorder, and recurrent unipolar disorder. Suggestive linkage was found on 1q31-q32 (lod = 2. 67; P = 0.00022) and 18p11.2 (lod = 2.32; P = 0.00054). Recent reports have linked schizophrenia to 13q32 and 18p11.2. Our genome scan identified other interesting regions, 7q31 (lod = 2.08; P = 0. 00099) and 22q11-q13 (lod = 2.1; P = 0.00094), and also confirmed reported linkages on 4p16, 12q23-q24, and 21q22. By comprehensive screening of the entire genome, we detected unreported loci for bipolar disorder, found support for proposed linkages, and gained evidence for the overlap of susceptibility regions for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.  (+info)

Plasma catecholamine metabolites as markers for psychosis and antipsychotic response in schizophrenia. (7/2554)

The objective of this study was to determine the association between the patterns of change in the dopaminergic metabolite plasma homovanillic acid (HVA), the noradrenergic metabolite 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG), and psychosis following haloperidol withdrawal in schizophrenic patients. Weekly plasma measurements were obtained in 107 subjects with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. Random regression was used to control for individual variance while modeling metabolite changes over time and relationships with psychosis. Changes in plasma MHPG were not significantly associated with relapse or psychosis, while increased plasma HVA was found to be associated with relapse. Psychosis was correlated negatively with plasma HVA levels. The current analysis, controlling for individual variance, indicates that there is evidence for pharmacological effects on plasma HVA, but not plasma MHPG. In addition, these metabolites do not appear to be direct markers of psychosis, but may be associated with a compensatory response by the system to return to the steady state.  (+info)

Assessing the feasibility of linkage disequilibrium methods for mapping complex traits: an initial screen for bipolar disorder loci on chromosome 18. (8/2554)

Linkage disequilibrium (LD) analysis has been promoted as a method of mapping disease genes, particularly in isolated populations, but has not yet been used for genome-screening studies of complex disorders. We present results of a study to investigate the feasibility of LD methods for genome screening using a sample of individuals affected with severe bipolar mood disorder (BP-I), from an isolated population of the Costa Rican central valley. Forty-eight patients with BP-I were genotyped for markers spaced at approximately 6-cM intervals across chromosome 18. Chromosome 18 was chosen because a previous genome-screening linkage study of two Costa Rican families had suggested a BP-I locus on this chromosome. Results of the current study suggest that LD methods will be useful for mapping BP-I in a larger sample. The results also support previously reported possible localizations (obtained from a separate collection of patients) of BP-I-susceptibility genes at two distinct sites on this chromosome. Current limitations of LD screening for identifying loci for complex traits are discussed, and recommendations are made for future research with these methods.  (+info)

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. They are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. Bipolar disorder symptoms can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. But bipolar disorder can be treated, and people with this illness can lead full and productive lives.. Causes. Scientists are studying the possible causes of bipolar disorder. Most scientists agree that there is no single cause. Rather, many factors likely act together to produce the illness or increase risk.. Genetics. Bipolar disorder tends to run in families. Some research has suggested that people with certain genes are more likely to develop bipolar disorder than others. Children with a parent or sibling who has bipolar disorder are much more likely to develop the ...
After reviewing numerous clinical trials, the American Heart Association issued a scientific statement that mentioned children and adolescents with major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder are at increased risk for cardiovascular diseases later in life. The statement was published online in Circulation on Aug. 10.
OBJECTIVE: Little is known about how often bipolar depressive episodes are accompanied by subsyndromal manic symptoms in bipolar I and II disorders. The authors sought to determine the frequency and clinical correlates of manic symptoms during episodes of bipolar depression. METHOD: From among 4,107 enrollees in the National Institute of Mental Healths Systematic Treatment Enhancement Program for Bipolar Disorder (STEP-BD), 1,380 individuals met criteria for bipolar I or II depressive syndromes at the time of enrollment and were assessed for concomitant manic symptoms. Illness characteristics were compared in patients with pure bipolar depressed episodes and those with mixed depressive presentations. RESULTS: Two-thirds of the subjects with bipolar depressed episodes had concomitant manic symptoms, most often distractibility, flight of ideas or racing thoughts, and psychomotor agitation.

Unipolar and bipolar disorder combined account for nearly half of all morbidity and mortality due to mental and substance use disorders, and burden society with the highest health care costs of all psychiatric and neurological disorders. Among these, costs due to psychiatric hospitalization are a major burden. Smartphones comprise an innovative and unique platform for the monitoring and treatment of depression and mania. No prior trial has investigated whether the use of a smartphone-based system can prevent re-admission among patients discharged from hospital. The present RADMIS trials aim to investigate whether using a smartphone-based monitoring and treatment system, including an integrated clinical feedback loop, reduces the rate and duration of re-admissions more than standard treatment in unipolar disorder and bipolar disorder. The RADMIS trials use a randomized controlled, single-blind, parallel-group design. Patients with unipolar disorder and patients with bipolar disorder are invited to
Bipolar disorder exists. Now, here is the hoax, actually many, many hoaxes. For now, we will provide you with just four of the major hoaxes.. Major Hoax #1: Bipolar disorder is a mental illness.. The fact is that bipolar disorder is a basket name; that is, bipolar disorder is the name of a group of mental illnesses. Some of them are extremely mild and one of them is extremely severe.. Major Hoax #2: Many people have bipolar disorder.. The fact is that only a few people have bipolar disorder, about one (1) in two hundred thousand (200,000) people.. Major Hoax #3: Bipolar disorder is a diseased condition of the brain.. The fact is that 99% of bipolar disorder cases are psychogenic (not physical).. Major Hoax #4 Bipolar disorder can only be cured with medications.. The fact is that 99% of bipolar disorder cases can be cured without medication.. For more information, see:. ...
Appropriate medication depends on the stage of the bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive illness (MDI), the patient is experiencing. Thus, a number of drugs are indicated for an acute manic episode, p... more
Myth: Bipolar disorder can not be diagnosed as easily as physical illness.. Fact: Bipolar disorder might be diagnosed similarly to physical illnesses. While there are no physical tests that can reveal the disorder, the diagnosis of bipolar illness is based on standard criteria. An accurate diagnosis of a bipolar illness is made by using the tools (or psychiatric laboratory tests) of a medical and psychiatric history, self-reported symptoms, observable behavior, input from loved ones, family medical history and specific psychiatric rating scales.. Myth: Children do not get bipolar disorder.. Fact: Bipolar disorder can occur in children as young as age six. It is much more likely to affect children of parents who have bipolar disorder. Children tend to have very fast mood swings between depression and mania often times during the day whereas adults tend to experience intense moods for weeks or months each time. Note- Bipolar disorder can best be diagnosed after examination of historical behaviour ...
Both Schizophrenia and bipolar disorders are problems in the thought processes of a human being. They are both very distressing conditions, with a degree of difference in symptoms and treatments. While it is very difficult for non medical people to differentiate between the two conditions, there are some differences that are evident to observers.. The most obvious differences between Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are evident during the initial onset of the condition. Almost 30% of people who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder report that their condition started off with depression. A similar number of people also report that they had manic symptoms when their disease first started off. Only 9% of those surveyed remember psychotic experiences at the start of the disease ...
OBJECTIVE: The Systematic Treatment Enhancement Program for Bipolar Disorder (STEP-BD) is designed to evaluate the longitudinal outcome of patients with bipolar disorder. The STEP-BD disease-management model is built on evidence-based practices and a collaborative care approach designed to maximize specific and nonspecific treatment mechanisms. This prospective study examined the longitudinal relationships between patients satisfaction with care, levels of hope, and life functioning in the first 1000 patients to enter STEP-BD. METHODS: The study used scores from the Care Satisfaction Questionnaire, Beck Hopelessness Scale, Range of Impaired Functioning Tool, Young Mania Rating Scale, and Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale at 5 time points during a 1-year interval. Analyses tested mediational pathways between care satisfaction, hope, and life functioning, depression, and mania using mixed-effects (random and fixed) regression models. RESULTS: Increases in care satisfaction were associated with
Bipolar disorder is a complex mental health condition that affects millions of adults each year. In many people, the complications of bipolar disorder are acquired from a familial connection in which a parent most likely suffered from the mental health complication as well. If you are an adult with bipolar disorder, and if you are concerned about your childs potential risk for developing bipolar disorder, it is important to become familiar with treatment and medications that may help to delay onset.. In many children who are pre-disposed to have bipolar disorder as adults, there are typically early warning signs and the onset of mental health complications in childhood. For most of these children, the complications of mental health will manifest, first, as a depressive disorder. Understanding this may be the beginning of a lifelong battle with mental health, parents are often skeptical to begin medication therapy at such a young age.. For children who are pre-disposed for bipolar disorder, and ...

OBJECTIVES: Conventional descriptions of bipolar disorder tend to treat the mixed state as something of an afterthought. There is no scale that specifically measures the phenomena of the mixed state. This study aimed to test a novel scale for mixed state in a clinical and community population of bipolar patients. METHODS: The scale included clinically relevant symptoms of both mania and depression in a bivariate scale. Recovered respondents were asked to recall their last manic episode. The scale allowed endorsement of one or more of the manic and depressive symptoms. Internal consistency analyses were carried out using Cronbach alpha. Factor analysis was carried out using a standard Principal Components Analysis followed by Varimax Rotation. A confirmatory factor analytic method was used to validate the scale structure in a representative clinical sample. RESULTS: The reliability analysis gave a Cronbach alpha value of 0.950, with a range of corrected-item-total-scale correlations from 0.546 (weight
Bipolar affective disorder is a chronic and complex disorder of mood that is characterized by a combination of manic (bipolar mania), hypomanic and depressive (bipolar depression) episodes, with substantial subsyndromal symptoms that commonly present between major mood episodes. It is one of the top causes of worldwide disability. Bipolar 1 disorder has been frequently associated with serious medical and psychiatric comorbidity, early mortality, high levels of functional disability, and compromised quality of life. The necessary feature of bipolar 1 disorder involves the occurrence of at least one lifetime manic episode, although depressive episodes are common. Bipolar 2 disorder needs the occurrence of at least one hypomanic episode and one major depressive episode. This activity reviews the etiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, and management of bipolar affective disorder and highlights the role of the interprofessional team in managing and improving care for patients with this condition. ...
We aimed to establish a bipolar disorder biobank to serve as a resource for clinical and biomarker studies of disease risk and treatment response. Here, we describe the aims, design, infrastructure, and research uses of the biobank, along with demographics and clinical features of the first participants enrolled. Patients were recruited for the Mayo Clinic Bipolar Biobank beginning in July 2009. The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV was used to confirm bipolar diagnosis. The Bipolar Biobank Clinical Questionnaire and Participant Questionnaire were designed to collect detailed demographic and clinical data, including clinical course of illness measures that would delineate differential phenotypes for subsequent analyses. Blood specimens were obtained from participants, and various aliquots were stored for future research. As of September 2014, 1363 participants have been enrolled in the bipolar biobank. Among these first participants, 69.0 % had a diagnosis of bipolar disorder type I. The group
Bipolar disorder dates back to the time of Hippocrates (Healy). Hippocrates was the first to put mania and melancholia on our cultural radar (Healy). The symptoms he used to diagnose mania were that of nausea, shivering, insomnia, and lack of thirst (Healy). Until recently, bipolar II disorder has been virtually unknown and highly underdiagnosed. DSM-IV has separated bipolar disorders into two types, bipolar II and I. (Chengappa, Levine, Gershon, Kupfer). These two disorders may have differing genetic, biological, phenomenological attributes and course of illness characteristics (Chengappa, Levine, Gershon, Kupfer). There are many reasons for this. A lack of education regarding the disorder, misdiagnosis, and improper treatments are the number one reason for misdiagnosis. Physicians and mental health clinicians are just now learning the symptoms of bipolar II disorder. During a 2005 chart review, 37% of 90 bipolar II disorder patients were misdiagnosed as having unipolar depression. Bipolar II ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of cognitive functioning on longitudinal 6-month functional and clinical outcome in recently diagnosed clinically stable patients with bipolar disorder. Method A total of 53 recently diagnosed patients with DSM-IV bipolar disorder type I were assessed within 3 months of their first manic episode using a neuropsychological battery measuring ...
Bipolar disorder not otherwise specified (BD-NOS) is a diagnosis for bipolar disorder (BD) when it does not fall within the other established sub-types. Bipolar disorder NOS is sometimes referred to as subthreshold bipolar disorder. BD-NOS is a mood disorder and one of three subtypes on the bipolar spectrum, which also includes bipolar I disorder and bipolar II disorder. BD-NOS was a classification in the DSM-IV and has since been changed to Bipolar Other Specified and Unspecified in the 2013 released DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Bipolar disorder is difficult to diagnose. If a person displays some symptoms of bipolar disorder but not others, the clinician may diagnose bipolar NOS. The diagnosis of bipolar NOS is indicated when there is a rapid change (days) between manic and depressive symptoms and can also include recurring episodes of hypomania. Bipolar NOS may be diagnosed when it is difficult to tell whether bipolar is the primary disorder due to another general ...
BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that social support can influence relapse rates, functioning and various clinical outcomes in people with bipolar disorder. Yet social support is a poorly defined construct, and the mechanisms by which it affects illness course in bipolar disorder remain largely unknown. Key aims of this study were to ascertain which facets of social interaction affect mood management in bipolar disorder, and how symptoms of bipolar disorder can influence the level of support received. METHOD: Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with 20 individuals with bipolar disorder. Questions were designed to elicit: the effects of social interaction upon the management and course of bipolar disorder; and the impact of bipolar disorder upon social relationships. An inductive thematic analysis was used to analyse the data. RESULTS: Empathy and understanding from another person can make it easier to cope with bipolar disorder. Social interaction can also provide opportunities ...
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a persons mood, energy, and ability to function. Different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. They can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and suicide. Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings-from overly high and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood.. The precise neural basis of BD is unknown. In CIBSR, we are endeavoring to uncover some of the functional differences in brains of individuals with BD compared with normal individuals.. For ongoing research at Stanford click here..

The clinical presentation of bipolar disorder can vary substantially from patient to patient. However, in all cases, there is impaired functioning in one or more area of life; for example, disruption to school, work, and/or relationships. And in most cases, the affective episodes of bipolar disorder (eg, mania or hypomania, depression, mixed states) are recurrent in nature.. While medication plays a primary role in the management of symptoms, psychotherapy can also be a crucial tool for recovery. This article discusses pertinent features of bipolar disorder and describes an evidence-based form of psychotherapy, called interpersonal and social rhythm therapy (IPSRT).. Individuals with what is classified as bipolar I disorder have experienced at least one episode of mania. It is common for individuals with bipolar I disorder to have also experienced at least one major depressive episode. Major depressive episodes in bipolar disorder have the same features as unipolar major depressive episodes. ...

According to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance , more than five and a half million Americans are affected by bipolar disorder every year. Most individuals that suffer from bipolar disorder develop the condition in their late teens or early twenties, but it can occur at any age. Diagnoses for bipolar disorder are made using theDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) , and in order to be diagnosed, a persons symptoms must represent a major change from their usual mood or behavior.. The fluctuations between the emotionally high episodes (manic or hypomanic mood episodes) and emotionally low (depressive mood episodes) make it difficult for individuals with bipolarism and their families to recognize their symptoms. They may be able identify singular symptoms, but they are not always able to recognize the larger underlying issue. Consequently, some people with bipolar disorder will suffer for years before being properly diagnosed and treated.. The longer the ...

Manic-depressive illnesses (Manic-depressive psychoses). These disorders are marked by severe mood swings and a tendency to remission and recurrence. Patients may be given this diagnosis in the absence of a previous history of affective psychosis if there is no obvious precipitating event. This disorder is divided into three major subtypes: manic type, depressed type, and circular type.. 296.1 Manic-depressive illness, manic type ((Manic-depressive psychosis, manic type)). This disorder consists exclusively of manic episodes. These episodes are characterized by excessive elation, irritability, talkativeness, flight of ideas, and accelerated speech and motor activity. Brief periods of depression sometimes occur, but they are never true depressive epi- sodes.. 296.2 Manic-depressive illness, depressed type ((Manic-depressive psychosis, depressed type)). This disorder consists exclusively of depressive episodes. These episodes are characterized by severely depressed mood and by mental and motor ...
Schizoaffective disorder and bipolar disorder share several similarities. Learn more about how these mental health problems are related.
Introduction. Bipolar disorder is a recurrent and chronic disorder with significant morbidity and mortality. It is characterized by a long-term episodic cyclical course of extreme fluctuations in mood that manifest as repeated manic, depressed, or mixed episodes with complete inter-episode recovery but high rates of chronicity that impact social and occupational development (Angst & Sellaro, 2000). According to the Systematic Treatment Enhancement Program for Bipolar Disorder, 5% of patients who fulfill the criteria for recovery suffer relapses each month (Baldassano, 2006). Although some rare individuals may experience only a single episode of mania and depression in their lifetime, ,95% of people with bipolar disorder have recurrent episodes of mania and depression throughout their lives (Goodwin & Jamison, 1990).. Bipolar disorder is a common disorder that affects 1% of the population. This prevalence may increase according to the diagnostic criteria used in each study (Judd & Akiskal, 2003). ...
Bipolar affective disorder is a severe, heritable condition affecting about one percent of. the population. The mode of inheritance is poorly understood and probably involves multiple loci of small to moderate effect. In this project, we use genetic mapping and sequencing methods to identify genetic markers and variations that contribute to the risk of bipolar disorder. Individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder are studied, along with their relatives. Phenotypic information obtained from clinical interviews and family history is correlated with genotypic information obtained from genetic marker and sequencing methods. The goal is to identify genes involved in bipolar disorder and related conditions so that better methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention can be developed. ...

People with bipolar disorder are highly vulnerable to risky sexual behaviors (RSBs). The magnitude of RSBs among bipolar disorders was not studied in our population. The present study aimed to explore the prevalence of RSBs and associated factors among patients with bipolar disorder. An institution based cross-sectional study was conducted from 1 April to 30 May 2017 among people living with bipolar disorder at outpatient departments of Amanuel Mental Health Hospital, Addis Ababa. Systematic random sampling was used to select participants. Risky sexual behavior was defined as having sex with two or more sexual partners, having unprotected sexual intercourse, sex after alcohol consumption, exchanged money for sex in a previous 12 months. Data collection was conducted through face-to-face interview by a structured questionnaire adopted from behavioral surveillance survey. Binary logistic regression was conducted to identify factors associated with RSBs. A total of 424 participants were enrolled in the
Children whose mother or father is affected by bipolar disorder may need to keep their stress levels in check. A new international study, led by Concordia University, suggests the stress hormone cortisol is a key player in the mood disorder. The findings published in Psychological Medicine, are the first to show children whose mother or father is affected by bipolar disorder are more easily affected by stress. When faced with normal everyday stress, their cortisol levels peak sooner ...
Bipolar disorder is a form of mental illness characterized by extreme mood changes from mania to depression. It is also known as manic depression. Mood swings are dramatic, and are much different that the normal ups and downs people typically go through.. Bipolar disorder usually develops before the age of 25 and affects people of all ages and backgrounds. Many people with bipolar disorder are misdiagnosed as suffering from depression. The reason for this is that a person who experiences these extreme mood changes is only likely to seek help when feeling depressed.. When patients are in the manic phase, they are energetic, talkative, restless, and euphoric. They experience racing thoughts and a decreased need for sleep. Many people with this disorder will try to cope with mania through drug or alcohol abuse and should seek drug treatment or alcohol rehabilitation if necessary. The depressive phase consists of lack of energy, hopelessness, and extreme sadness. Phases of mania or depression ...
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a persons mood, energy, and ability to function.. The mood episodes associated with the disorder persist from days to weeks or longer, and can be dramatic, with periods of being overly high and/or irritable to periods of persistent sadness and hopelessness.. Severe changes in behavior go along with the mood changes. These periods of highs and lows, called episodes of mania and depression, can be distinct episodes often recurring over time, or they may occur together in a so-called mixed state. Often people with bipolar disorder experience periods of normal mood in between mood episodes.. A manic episode is diagnosed if an elevated mood occurs with three or more primary symptoms most of the day, nearly every day, for at least one week. With an irritable mood, four additional symptoms must be present for a diagnosis.. Signs and symptoms of a manic episode can include the following:. ...

In 2017 the US Food and Drug Administration approved a monthly injectable form of the atypical antipsychotic drug aripiprazole, Abilify Maintena, for the prevention of manic and mixed episodes in bipolar I disorder. The intramuscular injections are available for monotherapy in preparations of 300 mg or 400 mg. Maintena did not prevent depressive episodes.. Maintena is already FDA-approved for the treatment of schizophrenia and Tourettes syndrome in adults.. The approval for bipolar I disorder follows a 52-week phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial. Participants were experiencing a manic episode during screening for the study, met the criteria for bipolar I disorder, and had had at least one prior manic or mixed episode severe enough to require treatment.. Compared to placebo, Maintena in once-a-month injections delayed the recurrence of any mood episode following the initial manic episode at screening. When the researchers separated their analysis based on type of episode, ...
Bipolar Disorder or Bipolar Affective Disorder, formerly known as manic-depression, is a disorder affecting the mental health of an individual and is characterized by severe mood swings, affecting the daily life of that individual. Patients of bipolar disorder experience periods of high energy and extremely elated behavior, called manic episodes accompanied by an extremely low and hopeless period, known as depressive episodes. In the interim between the two episodes, may lie a period of normal mood. Sometimes the manic episodes are less severe and are referred to as hypomanic episodes. The frequency and severity of the episodes vary from person to person. Thus, drastic change in mood, which are poles apart, is suggestive of a bipolar disorder.. The exact cause of the disease is unknown and genetic and environmental factors have been implicated in causing the disease.. As per recent statistics by National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 4.4% of American adults are affected by bipolar ...
Children who have a parent with bipolar disorder are at risk for bipolar illness, but it may first present as depression. Treating these children with antidepressants has the risk of bringing on manic episodes. Researchers are looking for treatment options for youth at risk for bipolar disorder.. Robert McNamara and colleagues found that 12 weeks of omega-3 fatty acids (2,100 mg/day) significantly improved response rates in medication-free youth ages 9-20 years compared to placebo (64% versus 36%). Omega-3 fatty acids but not placebo also reduced the activation of limbic structures in the brain (the left parahippocampal gyrus) in response to emotional stimuli.. Editors Note: These data add to the literature on the positive effects of 1-2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids in depression. Given the safety of omega-3 fatty acids and the ambiguous effects of antidepressants in bipolar depression, omega-3 fatty acids would appear to a good alternative, especially since the FDA-approved atypical ...
Levy B. Autonomic nervous system arousal and cognitive functioning in bipolar disorder. Bipolar Disord 2012: 00: 000-000. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.Published by Blackwell Publishing Ltd.. Objective: Previous theories about the etiology of cognitive dysfunction in bipolar disorder (BD) emphasized trait factors such as neurological impairment. State factors, other than mood symptoms, that may exacerbate functional deficits have not yet been considered. The purpose of this study was to examine autonomic nervous system (ANS) arousal following cognitive challenge. The study compared patients with BD and healthy controls (HC) in physiological measures and neuropsychological test scores.. Methods: Thirty euthymic patients with BD and 22 HC completed the study. Participants completed mood [Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) and Young Mania Rating Scale (YMRS)], anxiety (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory), and substance abuse (Drug Abuse Screening Test-20 item and Alcohol Use Disorders Identification ...
The anesthetic ketamine (sometimes illicitly-used as a recreational drug) produced rapid alleviation of severe depression in patients with treatment-resistant bipolar illness in a small clinic trial.
The results of the meta-analysis suggest that individuals with bipolar disorder are 2.6 times more likely to experience childhood adversity when compared with a non-clinical control group. This effect did not appear to be the result of study design or bias, and remained robust and significant even after controlling for hypothetically missing studies. The findings should be interpreted in the context of relatively few longitudinal studies and none with a prospective cohort design, limiting the ability to make causal inferences. Nevertheless, there appears to be a strong and significant association between childhood adversity and bipolar disorder.. We found some variances in this association when specific types of exposure were analysed separately. Emotional abuse was four times more likely to have occurred in bipolar disorder groups than in healthy controls, an effect seemingly larger than for other types of adversity. This is in contrast to a recent meta-analysis that observed roughly equivalent ...
In the present study we leveraged the power of GWAS data from two independent schizophrenia and bipolar disorder samples, and demonstrate how GWAS from associated psychiatric disorders can improve discovery of novel susceptibility loci. Using standard GWAS analytical methods, we identified only one significant locus. By applying traditional FDR methods in the separate GWAS samples, we found an additional 6 loci (2 in bipolar disorder, 4 in schizophrenia). Combining the independent schizophrenia and bipolar disorder GWAS samples, we identified a total of 58 loci in schizophrenia and 35 in bipolar disorders, with conditional FDR,0.05 as a threshold. Nine of the current loci have been identified earlier in larger samples using standard GWAS analytical methods (7 in schizophrenia, 5 in bipolar disorder, and 3 in combined samples), while 10 other loci have been reported to show borderline association with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia (Table S1). These results demonstrate the feasibility of using ...
BACKGROUND: North American studies show bipolar disorder is associated with elevated rates of problem gambling; however, little is known about rates in the different presentations of bipolar illness. AIMS: To determine the prevalence and distribution of problem gambling in people with bipolar disorder in the UK. METHOD: The Problem Gambling Severity Index was used to measure gambling problems in 635 participants with bipolar disorder. RESULTS: Moderate to severe gambling problems were four times higher in people with bipolar disorder than in the general population, and were associated with type 2 disorder (OR = 1.74, P = 0.036), history of suicidal ideation or attempt (OR = 3.44, P = 0.02) and rapid cycling (OR = 2.63, P = 0.008). CONCLUSIONS: Approximately 1 in 10 patients with bipolar disorder may be at moderate to severe risk of problem gambling, possibly associated with suicidal behaviour and a rapid cycling course. Elevated rates of gambling problems in type 2 disorder highlight the probable
Objective: To determine if medication plays a major role in cognitive impairment in bipolar disorder and if regular treatment with lithium influences the cognitive performance of a group of euthymic patients with bipolar I disorder.. Method: Cognitive performance was assessed using neuropsychological tests of attention, memory, and executive function on 60 subjects: 20 euthymic bipolar I patients with no medication intake, 20 euthymic bipolar I patients who were following regular treatment with lithium carbonate monotherapy, and a third group of 20 control healthy subjects. The subjects were evaluated from January 2005 to October 2006. Patients were diagnosed using DSM-IV criteria for bipolar disorder. Results: Compared to the healthy group, bipolar I patients had significantly lower performance on episodic verbal and visual-verbal memory regardless of their medication status. No significant cognitive performance differences were found between the two groups of patients with bipolar disorder, ...
Although both bipolar disorder and chronic depression have multiple similarities, they also have some key differences. Plagued by extreme sadness or profound emptiness, depression can make even the most cheerful person feel hopeless and restless, taking away his zeal for life. Whereas, people suffering from bipolar disorder are known to oscillate between manic episodes and severe depression. No wonder, both the conditions are often misdiagnosed as major depression.. Now, a study by researchers from Illinois Loyola University suggests that both depression and bipolar disorder can be distinguished from each other by monitoring the patients heartbeat. For the study published recently in the World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, the researchers examined 64 adults suffering from severe depression and 37 others grappling with bipolar disorder. All the 101 subjects were made to undergo electrocardiograms for a duration of 15 minutes, the results of which were analyzed subsequently using ...
Bipolar affective disorder is a condition where there are periodic swings of mood periods of months or years between manic episodes and depressed episodes (1). Bipolar disorder is a potentially lifelong and disabling condition characterised by episodes of mania (abnormally elevated mood or irritability and related symptoms with severe functional impairment or psychotic symptoms for 7 days or more) or hypomania (abnormally elevated mood or irritability and related symptoms with decreased or increased function for 4 days or more) and episodes of depressed mood. It is often comorbid with other disorders such as anxiety disorders, substance misuse, personality disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (2). The American Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-V) distinguishes between bipolar I and bipolar II disorder - includes the category bipolar and related disorders, which encompasses bipolar II, bipolar I, and cyclothymic disorders. ...

FEIER, Gustavo et al. Creatine kinase levels in patients with bipolar disorder: depressive, manic, and euthymic phases. Rev. Bras. Psiquiatr. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.2, pp.171-175. Epub Mar 18, 2011. ISSN 1516-4446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-44462011005000005.. OBJECTIVE: Bipolar disorder is a severe, recurrent, and often chronic psychiatric illness associated with significant functional impairment, morbidity, and mortality. Creatine kinase is an important enzyme, particularly for cells with high and fluctuating energy requirements, such as neurons, and is a potential marker of brain injury. The aim of the present study was to compare serum creatine kinase levels between bipolar disorder patients, in the various phases (depressive, manic, and euthymic), and healthy volunteers. METHOD: Forty-eight bipolar patients were recruited: 18 in the euthymic phase; 17 in the manic phase; and 13 in the depressive phase. The control group comprised 41 healthy volunteers. The phases of bipolar ...
Bipolar disorder is a mental health diagnosis that is characterized by mood swings that usually include emotional highs, classified as mania, and emotional lows, classified as depressive episodes. Depressive episodes occur when one feels down, hopeless, or loses interest in activities. On the other hand, manic episodes occur when one feels full of energy, erratic, and is easily irritated. This swing from depressive to manic episodes can disrupt daily functioning such as sleep, eating, judgment, and productivity. There are a few types of Bipolar disorders: Bipolar I, Bipolar II, and cyclothymic disorder. Bipolar I is classified as one manic episode followed or preceded by a depressive disorder. On the other hand, bipolar II is when one has a hypomanic episode, which is when the symptoms are less severe, and one depressive episode. Cyclothymic disorder is classified as periods of hypomania and depression that span over two years. These episodes can occur multiple times a year or rarely. Bipolar ...

Sarah is a 42-year-old married woman who has a long history of both depressive and hypomanic episodes. Across the years she has been variable diagnoses as having major depression, borderline personality disorder, and most recently, bipolar disorder. Review of symptoms indicates that she indeed have multiple episodes of depression beginning in her late teens, but that clear hypomanic episodes later emerged. Her elevated interpersonal conflict, hyper-sexuality and alcohol use during her hypomanic episodes led to the provisional borderline diagnosis, but in the context of her full history, bipolar disorder appears the best diagnosis. Sarah notes that she is not currently in a relationship and that she feels alienated from her family. She has been taking mood stabilizers for the last year, but continues to have low level symptoms of depression. In the past, she has gone off her medication multiple times, but at present she says she is tired of being in trouble all the time and wants to try ...

Data from the United States on lifetime prevalence varies; but it indicates a rate of around 1% for bipolar I, 0.5%-1% for bipolar II or cyclothymia, and 2%-5% for sub-threshold cases meeting some, but not all, criteria. The onset of full symptoms generally occurs in late adolescence or young adulthood. Diagnosis is based on the persons self-reported experiences, as well as observed behavior.. Bipolar Disorder is a serious problem for the individual and their relationship with their loved ones. There are several different diagnoses that are included in the bipolar disorders category, including Bipolar Disorder I, Bipolar Disorder II, and Cyclothymia. These disorders have a common experience of intense mood swings that significantly interfere with life. These mood swings range in intensity and duration. They include prolonged periods of depression as well as extended periods of mania or hypomania where a person may feel unusually energetic, or revved up, a decreased need for sleep, changes in ...
Bipolar disorder in children, or pediatric bipolar disorder (PBD), is a mental disorder in children and adolescents that, like bipolar disorder (BD) in adults, is characterized by extreme changes in mood and behavior accompanying periods of depressed or irritable moods and periods of elevated moods called manic or hypomanic episodes. These shifts are sometimes quick, but usually they are gradual. The average age of onset of PBD is unclear, but the risk increases with the onset of puberty. PBD is typically more severe and has a poorer prognosis than BD with onset in late-adolescence or adulthood. The DSM has specified that the criteria for BD can be applied to children since 1980. However, the exact criteria for diagnosing PBD remains controversial and heavily debated. There are big differences in how commonly it is diagnosed across clinics and in different countries. There has been a rapid increase in research on the topic, but training and clinical practice lag behind.[citation needed] ...
This analysis of individual patient data across the 31 studies provides further evidence that euthymic bipolar patients exhibit moderate cognitive impairments on a range of standard neuropsychological tests. Cognitive deficits remain significant even after controlling for key baseline factors such as age, IQ and gender that are known to affect neuropsychological test performance. The current level of minor depressive symptoms and the effects of some drug treatments may contribute to these effects but cannot explain them. Thus, there is significant residual cognitive impairment associated with bipolar disorder over and above the known confounding factors.. The effect sizes for such deficits were lower (0.26-0.63) than those reported in prior meta-analyses [6-8, 10] (ds = 0.5-1.0). This reduction in observed effect sizes is in part due to controlling better for the effect of age, IQ and gender. However, we were also able to include unpublished studies which often had the lowest effect sizes [e.g. ...
Comedy, the saying goes, is tragedy plus time. For Carrie Fischer, the actress and author best known for her role as Princess Leia, this maxim is a golden rule. On Saturday, April 20, Fischer spoke at the Sarasota Opera House about growing up in Hollywood, her struggle with substance addiction and life with bipolar disorder.. Known for her caustic humor and wit, Fischer candidly detailed her experiences with substance abuse and bipolar disorder, two issues that she believes to be interrelated.. When youre bipolar, using is very appealing, Fischer said. It helps you get away from your emotions.. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about 2.6 percent of American adults have bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is characterized by two distinct phases: mania - which causes feelings of euphoria, restlessness and high energy levels - and depression.. Fischer said that, in her experience, seeking and adhering to treatment plans can be complicated by the symptoms of the disorder ...
I assume that, having been recently diagnosed with ADHD and Bipolar Disorders, that you are now on medication, especially for Bipolar Disorder. However, medication is not enough. My recommendation is that you see a clinical psychologist or licensed clinical social worker whose expertise is in treating Bipolar Disorder.. In particular, I recommend that you find a psychotherapist who uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT will help you identify those situations that cause you to become symptomatic and it will help you learn healthy strategies to reduce your Bipolar symptoms.. Please understand that I do not doubt the Doctor who diagnosed you with both disorders and that does happen. At the same time, it is difficult to distinguish between the two disorders when making a diagnosis. I am just asking if, maybe, its possible that you have Bipolar Disorder instead of ADHD I do not know and, in fact, it is possible that its the reverse. I raise the question because medication and psychotherapy are ...
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder. About 1 percent of Americans have this illness. Symptoms people with schizophrenia have include: hearing voices, believing other people are reading their minds or controlling thoughts, and being suspicious or withdrawn.. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. The symptoms of bipolar disorder include alternating periods of depression and high or irritable mood, increased activity and restlessness, racing thoughts, talking fast, impulsive behavior, and a decreased need for sleep.. The approval of generic olanzapine offers greater access to a widely used treatment for mental illnesses, said Keith Webber, Ph.D., deputy director of the Office of Pharmaceutical Science in the FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.

NIMH expert Mary Rooney, Ph.D., discussed the signs and symptoms, proper diagnosis, and treatments for bipolar disorder in adolescents and young adults. Also, Dr. Rooney discussed some of the challenges that the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has presented for individuals living with bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses.
Bipolar disorder usually is diagnosed and treated by a psychiatrist and/or a psychologist. In addition to an interview with the child and her parents, several clinical inventories or scales may be used to assess the patients mental status and determine the presence of bipolar symptoms. These include the Childrens Global Assessment Scale (C-GAS), General Behavior Inventory (GBI), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory Adolescent (MMPI-A), the Youth Inventory (YI-4), and the Young Mania Rating Scale (YMRS). The tests are verbal and/or written and are administered in both hospital and outpatient settings. Bipolar symptoms often present differently in children and adolescents. Manic episodes in these age groups are typically characterized by more psychotic features than in adults, which may lead to a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia. Children and adolescents also tend to demonstrate irritability and aggressiveness instead of the elation of mania in adults. ...

Journal compilation © 2010 John Wiley & Sons A/S.. Objectives: We examined a nationwide population-based dataset of patients with bipolar disorder (BD) hospitalized in Taiwan, with our analyses focusing on one-year medical costs and relapse rates.. Methods: The data for this study, covering the years 2006 and 2007, were obtained from the Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI) claims database. The study sample comprised BD patients who were discharged from hospitals between January 1 and December 31, 2006. Annual medical costs and relapse rates were described; the Kaplan-Meier method and the generalized linear models were carried out to examine the risk factors associated with cases of relapse.. Results: The annual medical costs associated with relapses among the study sample were found to be approximately 7.6 times the average per-capita NHI expenditure in Taiwan in 2006 (US$4,354 versus US$574), with a one-year relapse rate of 55%. Those patients between 20 and 60 years old with a medication ...
Oxcarbazepine in the maintenance treatment of bipolar disorder: Some studies have suggested that oxcarbazepine, an anti-convulsant, may have a role in preventing episode recurrence in bipolar affective disorder. This systematic review investigated the efficacy and acceptability of oxcarbazepine compared to placebo and other agents in the maintenance treatment of bipolar disorder. Two randomised controlled trials were found that met the methodological inclusion criteria. However, in both cases, data were reported with insufficient clarity to be confidently extracted for inclusion in a meta-analysis. Currently, there is insufficient evidence on which to base any recommendations on the use of oxcarbazepine in the maintenance treatment of bipolar illness, either in monotherapy or as an adjunctive treatment. There is need for good quality randomised controlled trials examining the efficacy and acceptability of oxcarbazepine in the maintenance treatment of bipolar disorder...... ...
Data about treatment of schizoaffective and bipolar disorders are summarised. In both disorders the frequent first choice is the combination of mood stabilizers and antipsychotics, respective antidepressants. In th 70s lithium was very popular, in the 80s anticonvulsants appeared and in the 90s atypical antipsychotics started to bi in the focus of attention. It is not clear whether atypical antipsychotics are mood stabilizers, because there is a lack of adequate studies. The authors data about the treatment of schizoffective disorders are presented. The authors, using retrospective chart analysis, found taht in this indication antipsychotics were preferred. On admission mood stabilizers were used in 20/64 (31%), only in 3/20 (15%) as monotherapy and in combination, in 46/64 (72%) antipsychotics were used. Atypical antipsychotics were preferre(33/46, 72%)to conventional antipsychotics (21/46, 46%). This ratio persisted on discharge. On discharge a higher number of patients were treated with ...
A 40-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with epigastric pain and agitation. She recently separated from her husband and was consuming 30 units of alcohol daily for 5 days. She had a history of bipolar affective disorder, borderline personality disorder and alcohol dependence syndrome. Investigations revealed the following: elevated troponin I levels, ST elevation, early Q waves and prolonged QTc. Emergency angiogram confirmed Takotsubos appearance. Medications with QTc prolongation propensity were held. A multidisciplinary apporach was required. She was discharged 10 days later when medically stabilised. It was later discovered that she died unexpectedly the following month. Takotsubo syndrome is a rare but unique cause of cardiac failure. This case highlights the need to consider the differential of Takotsubo syndrome in people presenting with possible acute ischaemic events, particularly in those with a history of combined emotional and physical stressors and a background ...

Bipolar Disorder is a serious mental illness characterized by recurrent episodes of depression, mania, and/or mixed symptom states. These episodes cause unusual and extreme shifts in mood, energy, and behavior that interfere significantly with normal, healthy functioning. Manic symptoms include: Severe changes in mood - either extremely irritable or overly silly and elated Overly-inflated self-esteem; grandiosity Increased energy Decreased need for sleep - able to go with very little or no sleep for days without tiring Increased talking - talks too much, too fast; changes topics too quickly; cannot be interrupted Distractibility - attention moves constantly from one thing to the next Hypersexuality - increased sexual thoughts, feelings, or behaviors; use of explicit sexual language Increased goal-directed activity of physical agitation Disregard of risk - excessive involvement in risky behaviors or activities. Depressive symptoms include: Persistent sad or irritable mood Loss of interest in ...
MITTAL, P K et al. A cross-sectional study of factors affecting seasonality in bipolar disorder. S. Afr. j. psyc. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.58-59. ISSN 2078-6786. http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAJP.491.. BACKGROUND: Researchers have evinced interest in the effect of seasonal variations on mood and behavioural patterns in affective disorders. OBJECTIVE: To study seasonality in bipolar disorder (BD) patients and also the factors affecting this seasonality. METHOD: Forty-nine patients with BD in euthymic phase were recruited and analysed using the Seasonal Pattern Assessment Questionnaire and Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire. RESULTS: Most of the patients were morning types but chronotype had no influence on seasonality. Age of patient and number of episodes were the most important factors affecting seasonality in BD. CONCLUSION: Seasonality and its influencing factors must be considered while managing bipolar disorder.. ...

A new study provides fascinating insight into the genetic basis of bipolar disorder, a highly heritable mood disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of mania and depression. The research, published by Cell Press online February 24 in the American Journal of Human Genetics, identifies a previously unrecognized susceptibility factor for bipolar disorder.. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) provide a way to systematically sort through all the DNA of many individuals in order to identify genetic variations associated with a particular disease. However, thus far these studies have not been as successful in bipolar disorder as they have been for several other common diseases, such as type II diabetes, Crohn disease, and schizophrenia. ...
Yoga is a truly wonderful system of exercise for conditioning the body and the mind too. It can definitely help the average person gain in body strength and flexibility, and as well, it is an effective means of stress reduction and relaxation. While all these things are true, Yoga is not a medicine in of itself (at least as it is likely to be practiced by the average American), and it is not a match for a true case of Bipolar Disorder or any other serious illness, for that matter. The only truly effective treatments Im aware of for impacting Bipolar Disorder are psychiatric medications such as Lithium and Valproic Acid (e.g., the mood stabilizing medications). Standard SSRI and SNRI antidepressants are used for bipolar conditions as well sometimes, but cautiously as they can precipitate mania. By all means, pursue yoga training, and as vigorously as you feel you safely can. So long as you do not injure yourself (which is a real possibility!) the practice will probably be very helpful and ...
View more ,We previously demonstrated that olfactory cultures from individuals with schizophrenia had increased cell proliferation compared to cultures from healthy controls. The aims of this study were to (a) replicate this observation in a new group of individuals with schizophrenia, (b) examine the specificity of these findings by including individuals with bipolar I disorder and (c) explore gene expression differences that may underlie cell cycle differences in these diseases. Compared to controls (n=10), there was significantly more mitosis in schizophrenia patient cultures (n=8) and significantly more cell death in the bipolar I disorder patient cultures (n=8). Microarray data showed alterations to the cell cycle and phosphatidylinositol signalling pathways in schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder, respectively. Whilst caution is required in the interpretation of the array results, the study provides evidence indicating that cell proliferation and cell death in olfactory neuroepithelial ...

We previously reported genome-wide significant evidence for linkage between chromosome 6q and bipolar I disorder (BPI) by performing a meta-analysis of original genotype data from 11 genome scan linkage studies. We now present follow-up linkage disequilibrium mapping of the linked region utilizing 3,047 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers in a case-control sample (N = 530 cases, 534 controls) and family-based sample (N = 256 nuclear families, 1,301 individuals). The strongest single SNP result (rs6938431, P = 6.72 x 10(-5)) was observed in the case-control sample, near the solute carrier family 22, member 16 gene (SLC22A16). In a replication study, we genotyped 151 SNPs in an independent sample (N = 622 cases, 1,181 controls) and observed further evidence of association between variants at SLC22A16 and BPI. Although consistent evidence of association with any single variant was not seen across samples, SNP-wise and gene-based test results in the three samples provided convergent evidence for
