In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

A class of statistical methods applicable to a large set of probability distributions used to test for correlation, location, independence, etc. In most nonparametric statistical tests, the original scores or observations are replaced by another variable containing less information. An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data.

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.
A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)
Behavior which may be manifested by destructive and attacking action which is verbal or physical, by covert attitudes of hostility or by obstructionism.

Disease patterns of the homeless in Tokyo. (1/29)

In recent years, homelessness has been recognized as a growing urban social problem in various countries throughout the world. The health problems of the homeless are considerable. The purpose of this study was to elicit, with sociodemographic profiles, the disease patterns among Tokyo's homeless. The subjects were 1,938 men who stayed at a welfare institution from 1992 to 1996. Diagnosed diseases/injuries and sociodemographic profiles were analyzed. The disease patterns of the homeless were compared to those of the male general population. Of the subjects, 8.3% were admitted to the hospital; 64.0% received outpatient care. Their observed morbidity rates by disease category were greater than those of the male general population in both Japan and Tokyo. Comorbidity of alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependent syndrome to both liver disease and pulmonary tuberculosis were greater than the average (P < .01). Construction work brought a higher risk of pulmonary tuberculosis (odds ratio = 2.0) and dorsopathies (odds ratio = 1.4) than did other jobs (P < .05). Disease patterns among the homeless in Tokyo were characterized by alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependence syndrome; liver disease; pulmonary tuberculosis; diabetes mellitus; fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains; hypertension; and cerebrovascular disease. Although the sociodemographic backgrounds of Tokyo's homeless have become more diverse, the principal occupation of the homeless was unskilled daily construction work, which underlay the characteristics of their disease patterns.  (+info)

Utilising survey data to inform public policy: comparison of the cost-effectiveness of treatment of ten mental disorders. (2/29)

BACKGROUND: Mental health survey data are now being used proactively to decide how the burden of disease might best be reduced. AIMS: To study the cost-effectiveness of current and optimal treatments for mental disorders and the proportion of burden avertable by each. METHOD: Data for three affective, four anxiety and two alcohol use disorders and for schizophrenia were compared interms of cost, burden averted and efficiency of current and optimal treatment. We then calculated the burden unavertable given current knowledge. The unit of health gain was a reduction in the years lived with disability (YLDs). RESULTS: Summing across all disorders, current treatment averted 13% of the burden, at an average cost of 30,000 Australian dollars per YLD gained. Optimal treatment at current coverage could avert 20% of the burden, at an average cost of 18,000 Australian dollars per YLD gained. Optimal treatment at optimal coverage could avert 28% of the burden, at 16,000 Australian dollars per YLD gained. Sixty per cent of the burden of mental disorders was deemed to be unavertable. CONCLUSIONS: The efficiency of treatment varied more than tenfold across disorders. Although coverage of some of the more efficient treatments should be extended, other factors justify continued use of less-efficient treatments for some disorders.  (+info)

Rehabilitation during alcohol detoxication in comorbid neuropsychiatric patients. (3/29)

For this study, we evaluated the effectiveness of a cognitive training program in improving cognitive function in patients with alcoholism comorbid with another neuropsychiatric disorder and going through the subacute phase of detoxication. We employed a randomized clinical trial design in which 20 subjects were assigned to a five-session cognitive rehabilitation program and 20 subjects were assigned to an attention placebo control condition. All subjects received a battery of cognitive tests for reasoning, attention, and visual-spatial abilities. These tests were repeated at the completion of the study. The training consisted of a number of component tasks designed to improve attention, speed of information processing, perceptual analysis, and visual-spatial cognition. We plotted performance on training results across sessions to detect evidence of learning effects. Comparisons of the cognitive tests revealed greater improvement in the training as compared to the attention placebo group on measures of attention and conceptual flexibility. We concluded that the training produced significant improvement over and above natural recovery during detoxication.  (+info)

Meaning of hemispheric disconnection syndrome medical term. What does hemispheric disconnection syndrome mean?
Diagnostic assessment of alcohol-induced psychotic disorders and delirium followed the guidelines of DSM-IV: a diagnosis of primary psychotic disorder was given if there was no evidence of heavy substance use or withdrawal, or if the psychotic symptoms were established before heavy substance use, or if the symptoms persisted for more than a month during a substance-free period. Alcohol-induced psychotic disorder was diagnosed only if a primary psychotic disorder had been ruled out. In alcohol-induced psychotic disorder, prominent psychotic symptoms occurred during or shortly after periods of heavy alcohol use. During these periods the psychotic symptoms were in excess of those usually associated with alcohol intoxication or withdrawal with perceptual disturbances, and severe enough to warrant clinical attention. To improve reliability the psychotic symptoms had to last at least 1 day, which is the minimum duration of brief psychotic disorder. The minimum duration of psychotic symptoms in ...
Excessive drinking can damage the brain, especially the frontal and parietal cortices. Some of this damage is reversible with abstinence from alcohol. New findings show that chronic cigarette smoking is associated with poor recovery of brain blood flow during abstinence from long-term heavy drinking.

PANDAS stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep, and refers to a syndrome of neuropsychiatric symptoms that results from a disordered immune response triggered by Group A Strep infection. It is essentially rheumatic fever of the brain. Since its discovery, it has been found that actually pretty much any pathogen can trigger this syndrome, so the broader term for this disorder- PANS- is now often used instead (although the two tend to be used interchangeably). PANS stands for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. From the PANDAS network site PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) is when an infectious trigger, environmental factors, and other possible triggers create a misdirected immune response (which) results in inflammation on a childs brain. In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life changing symptoms such as OCD, severe restrictive eating, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting ...

Neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) such as depression, apathy, aggression, and psychosis are now recognized as core features of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and there is a general consensus that greater symptom severity is predictive of faster cognitive decline, loss of independence, and even shorter survival. Whether these symptoms result from the same pathogenic processes responsible for cognitive decline or have unique etiologies independent of AD-associated neurodegeneration is unclear. Many structural and metabolic features of the AD brain are associated with individual neuropsychiatric symptoms or symptom clusters. In addition, many genes have been identified and confirmed that are associated with symptom risk in a few cases. However, there are no single genes strongly predictive of individual neuropsychiatric syndromes, while functional and structural brain changes unique to specific symptoms may reflect variability in progression of the same pathological processes. Unfortunately, treatment

Winni. PANS stands for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. Researchers are only beginning to study and understand this syndrome, so there are a lot of unanswered questions about what it is and what causes it.. What we do know is that kids with PANS have severe symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that come on very suddenly. They also may have sudden and severe anxiety, mood swings, irritability, or uncontrollable movements. School performance might suffer, and some kids have sleep problems or a sudden case of bedwetting.. Its unclear why these symptoms happen. One theory is that an earlier infection may have led to the development of antibodies that - besides attacking the infecting germs - mistakenly targeted an area of the brain that controls behavior.. In the past, some kids with these symptoms were diagnosed as having PANDAS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcus). This name was given because it seemed that symptoms were ...
When children suddenly develop full-blown OCD and these associated symptoms, it may be whats called PANS - pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome. Its called acute onset because the behavior changes come on suddenly, reaching full-scale intensity within 24 to 48 hours. Its a syndrome because there are quite a few other symptoms that appear alongside the intense anxiety.. If the onset of these symptoms is linked to a strep infection, its called PANDAS - pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococcal infections - which is a subgroup of PANS. Some 86 percent of acute onset OCD cases are linked to strep. Children especially at risk are those who have what doctors call occult or hidden strep infections - that is, children who can be carriers of the infection but dont get symptoms themselves, and hence dont get treatment.. PANS cases have also been linked to other infections, including Lyme disease, mononucleosis, mycoplasma (walking pneumonia) and ...

Description of disease Delirium tremens. Treatment Delirium tremens. Symptoms and causes Delirium tremens Prophylaxis Delirium tremens
Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating. People may also see or hear things other people do not. Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs from which to withdraw. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month. A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment ...

Delirium tremens can occur when you stop drinking alcohol after a period of heavy drinking, especially if you do not eat enough food. Delirium tremens may also be.
The main symptoms of delirium tremens are nightmares, agitation, global confusion, disorientation, visual and[9] auditory hallucinations, tactile hallucinations, fever, high blood pressure, heavy sweating, and other signs of autonomic hyperactivity (fast heart rate and high blood pressure). These symptoms may appear suddenly, but typically develop two to three days after the stopping of heavy drinking, being worst on the fourth or fifth day.[10] Also, these symptoms are characteristically worse at night.[11] In general, DT is considered the most severe manifestation of alcohol withdrawal and occurs 3-10 days following the last drink.[9] Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, or rats. These may be hallucinations, or illusions related to the environment, e.g., patterns on the wallpaper or in the peripheral vision that the patient falsely perceives as a resemblance to the morphology of an insect, and are also associated with tactile ...
It seldom occurs until the abuser has been drinking heavily for at least the past ten years. The syndrome follows within a few days (until a maximum of two weeks) after stopping drinking. The mortality rate for delirium tremens improved from the last century from 37% to 2-7% of patients with the disorder due to advances in intensive care medicine. The etiology of delirium tremens is due to functional changes in the GABA neurotransmitter and NMDA receptors, which lead to unbalanced effects of excitatory transmitters. One of the best descriptions of delirium tremens in literature was given by Charles Jackson in the novel The Lost Weekend (1944), and Mark Twain gave a superb description of the disease with the alcoholic and abusive father in Huckleberry Finn. Edgar Allan Poe probably died because of delirium tremens (even if there is some controversy on this issue), calling out the name Reynolds (perhaps the explorer Jeremiah N. Reynolds) and repeating for hours Lord help my poor soul ...
Delirium tremens (DTs) are a consequence of chronic alcoholism. With prolonged and excessive use of alcohol, the secretion and functioning of different neurotransmitters in the brain are affected. Neurotransmitters, commonly referred to as brain hormones, are chemical messengers that are released from one nerve cell (neuron) to stimulate or inhibit another nerve cell. These neurotransmitters are in play throughout the day and night. However, its secretion and duration of action needs to be controlled to prevent overactivity of underactivity of the nervous system. The complex interaction between the electrical impulses along the nerves, the neurotransmitters at the nerve endings and the receptors on the other nerves which it acts upon is an integral component of the complexity of the human nervous system.. ...

Alcohol is a powerfully addictive drug that is associated with severely debilitating, even dangerous, withdrawal symptoms, including delirium tremens.
Delirium tremens (DTs) is the most severe form of ethanol withdrawal manifested by altered mental status (global confusion) and sympathetic overdrive (autonomic hyperactivity), which can progress to cardiovascular collapse. DTs is a medical emergency with a high mortality rate, making early recognition and treatment essential.

Chronic excessive alcohol intoxications evoke cumulative damage to tissues and organs. We examined prefrontal cortex (Brodmanns area (BA) 9) from 20 human alcoholics and 20 age, gender, and postmortem delay matched control subjects. H & E staining and light microscopy of prefrontal cortex tissue revealed a reduction in the levels of cytoskeleton surrounding the nuclei of cortical and subcortical neurons, and a disruption of subcortical neuron patterning in alcoholic subjects. BA 9 tissue homogenisation and one dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) proteomics of cytosolic proteins identified dramatic reductions in the protein levels of spectrin beta II, and alpha- and beta-tubulins in alcoholics, and these were validated and quantitated by Western blotting. We detected a significant increase in a-tubulin acetylation in alcoholics, a non-significant increase in isoaspartate protein damage, but a significant increase in protein isoaspartyl methyltransferase protein levels, the ...

BACKGROUND: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative disease of motor neurons that causes progressive paralysis and eventually results in death from respiratory failure. Environmental factors that trigger ALS might result in a pattern of geographical clustering of cases. We tested this hypothesis using the South-East England ALS population register, which covers south-east London, Kent and parts of neighbouring counties. METHODS: The registers catchment area was divided into postcode districts and sectors. The expected rates of ALS (adjusted for age and sex) were compared with the observed rates using a standardised residuals method and the SaTScan programme. RESULTS: There were 406 cases of ALS identified in the catchment area during the study period. Four of the 126 postcode districts, all in Greater London, had residuals |2.5 SDs from the mean. Similarly, there were 15 postcode sectors (out of 420) that had residuals |1.96 SDs from the mean. Nine of these were in Greater London. SaTScan

The present study reports for the first time on the experience of infliximab in the clinical setting of IBD in a strictly population based cohort. The study comprised all IBD patients treated in Stockholm County between 1999 and 2001. This enabled us to assess infliximab therapy in an epidemiological context with regard to severe adverse events, including postoperative complications, serious infections, malignancies, and deaths. In our clinical experience with infliximab in an unselected IBD population, we encountered more severe adverse events than expected from earlier reports.18-20 A total of six deaths were seen; all of those patients had received a single dose (5 mg/kg) of infliximab. The annual mortality rate among IBD patients in Stockholm County has been historically low, with a standardised mortality ratio of 1.51 for CD and 1.37 for UC.21 Two of the fatalities occurred postoperatively, giving a mortality rate of 4.9%, which is higher than that previously reported from St Marks ...
Michael E. Hoffer et al. reported in the journal PLosOne in 2013 that veterans with blast-induced mild traumatic brain injury had a better acute outcome when they were given the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC) within the first 24 hours after the trauma versus when they were given placebo during the same period. Forty-two percent of those receiving placebo had a good acute outcome, while 86% of those receiving N-acetylcysteine had a good acute outcome. Memory loss, sleep disturbance, dizziness, and headaches all improved more in the N-acetylcysteine group. NACs benefits diminished when it was given 3 or 7 days after the trauma.. Editors Note: These data add to the growing list of neuropsychiatric syndromes in which NAC has shown efficacy. These include schizophrenia, bipolar depression, unipolar depression, cocaine and heroin addiction, gambling addiction, trichotillomania (compulsive hair-pulling), obsessive-compulsive disorder (as an adjunctive treatment to SSRIs), and improvement in ...
Gary Heiman, PhD, focuses on research at the intersection of genetics, psychiatry, and neurology. Many neurological disorders are highly comorbid with psychiatric disorders, but the cause of this comorbidity is unknown. Using genetic information, he is testing the hypothesis that the comorbidity is due, in part, to a shared genetic susceptibility. Dr. Heiman is conducting a number of studies including the genetic relationship between epilepsy and depression; psychiatric manifestations of the DYT1 dystonia gene; various clinical manifestations, including psychiatric symptoms, in a genetic form of Parkinsons disease; and the long-term clinical course of DYT1 dystonia carriers to determine if any other signs or symptoms appear later in life. He is investigating genetics of Tourettes Disorder (TD). TD is a developmental neuropsychiatric syndrome characterized by persistent vocal and motor tics. He is the PI on the Tourette International Collaborative Genetics, the largest sharing cell and DNA repository

Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome, or PANS, describes a condition in which a child develops acute onset of psychiatric symptoms following an infection. At the 2015 meeting of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, researcher Tanya K. Murphy reported on symptoms that differentiate PANS from other childhood-onset illnesses. Kids with PANS are more likely to have:. ...
TUESDAY, May 12, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Researchers may have gained new insights into a mystifying condition that causes childrens behavior to change so severely and abruptly, it can be like they woke up as a different person.. The condition is known as pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome, or PANS. It is diagnosed when a child has a dramatic -- sometimes overnight -- onset of psychiatric and neurological symptoms.. The primary ones are obsessive-compulsive behaviors and fears over food that cause the child to stop eating. But affected children also have issues ranging from depression and dramatic mood swings, to difficulty with school work, sleep disturbances, bedwetting and behavioral regression -- reverting to preschool temper tantrums and separation anxiety, for example.. PANS is still a mystery, but researchers suspect it begins with an infection, which causes a misguided immune system attack on the brain.. But while a PANS diagnosis is sometimes made, it is also ...
Now that genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are dominating the landscape of genetic research on neuropsychiatric syndromes, investigators are being faced with complexity on an unprecedented scale. It is now clear that phenomics, the systematic study of phenotypes on a genome-wide scale, comprise …
Tail biting in pigs is a widespread problem in intensive pig farming. The tendency to develop this damaging behaviour has been suggested to relate to serotonergic functioning and personality characteristics of pigs. We investigated whether tail biting in pigs can be associated with blood serotonin and with their behavioural and physiological responses to novelty. Pigs (n = 480) were born in conventional farrowing pens and after weaning at four weeks of age they were either housed barren (B) or in straw-enriched (E) pens. Individual pigs were exposed to a back test and novel environment test before weaning, and after weaning to a novel object (i.e. bucket) test in an unfamiliar arena. A Principal Component Analysis on behaviours during the tests and salivary cortisol (novel object test only) revealed five factors for both housing systems, labeled Early life exploration, Near bucket, Cortisol, Vocalizations & standing alert, and Back test activity. Blood samples were taken at 8, 9 and 22 weeks

Vitamin B complex consists of diverse B vitamins that are often called the energy vitamins. B vitamins work as a key to lock and unlock energy production. These vitamins help fight fatigue, poor concentration and irritability. If you are deficient in B vitamins (most people are not), this can affect your energy levels. Symptoms of B vitamin deficiency include: fatigue, anemia, weakness, memory loss, and digestive problems.
If you live a relatively healthy lifestyle but feel more fatigued than usual‚ or notice that your nails or hair are brittle‚ you may be suffering from a B vitamin deficiency. A wide variety of foods contain B vitamins that are essential for good health; these essential nutrients are grouped together in the B-complex family. Certain digestive disorders‚ other diseases‚ and medications can make it difficult for your body to properly absorb these vitamins through your diet. (You may be especially at risk of insufficient intake of vitamin B-12.) If thats the case‚ you may need to take a multivitamin or B complex supplement to assist absorption. DaVinci Labs B Complex-75 contains all 11 vitamins in the B complex family. Together‚ these vitamins support growth and development. Each one also provides additional benefits‚ such as: ...
