Atypical antipsychotics have been found not only to be beneficial in the treatment of psychotic disorders, but even for depressive symptoms in patients with schizophrenia. Remarkably, preliminary data suggest that the atypical antipsychotic quetiapine has antidepressive properties. Until now, there is limited knowledge concerning the efficacy of quetiapine in major depressive illness and especially in psychotic depression. In our own clinical practice, several patients with psychotic depression were successfully treated with quetiapine as add-on therapy or as monotherapy. On the background of that, the convincing effects of quetiapine in bipolar depression, single-case reports and pilot studies concerning its effectiveness in depressive mood states in psychotic disorders as well as our clinical experiences, it is to assume that a treatment with quetiapine over a 6 weeks period show similar effects in major depressive episode with psychotic features, i.e. psychotic depression. In this pilot study ...
BACKGROUND: The optimal pharmacological treatment of unipolar psychotic depression is uncertain. AIMS: To compare the clinical effectiveness of pharmacological treatments for patients with unipolar psychotic depression. METHOD: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. RESULTS: Ten trials were included in the review. We found no evidence that the combination of an antidepressant with an antipsychotic is more effective than an antidepressant alone. This combination was statistically more effective than an antipsychotic alone. CONCLUSIONS: Antidepressant monotherapy and adding an antipsychotic if the patient does not respond, or starting with the combination of an antidepressant and an antipsychotic, both appear to be appropriate options for patients with unipolar psychotic depression. However, clinically the balance between risks and benefits may suggest the first option should be preferred for many patients. Starting with an antipsychotic alone appears to be inadequate.
A person with psychotic depression has detached from reality. Psychotic depression symptoms can be frightening, but psychotic depression treatment is available.
Major depression with psychotic features (psychotic depression; PD) is a severe, potentially fatal disorder with a high risk of relapse and recurrence [1, 2]. Older adults are at greatest risk of PD, with up to 45% of older inpatients with major depression having psychotic features [3, 4]. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and pharmacotherapy are each efficacious in the treatment of PD [5, 6]. Several factors influence the choice of treatment, including patient preference, clinical acuity, past history of treatment response, side effect profile, and availability of ECT.. When pharmacotherapy is selected, expert guidelines, supported by meta-analytic evidence, recommend a combination of antidepressant and antipsychotic medications for acute treatment [7-9]. However, little is known about the continuation and maintenance treatment of PD. Once an episode of major depression responds to antidepressant medication, the antidepressant needs to be continued to prevent relapse and recurrence of depression ...
Background The association between depression and increased mortality risk in older persons may depend on the severity of the depressive disorder and gender.. Aims To investigate the association between major and mild depressive syndromes and excess mortality in community-living elderly men and women.. Method Depression (Geriatric Mental State AGECAT) was assessed in 4051 older persons, with a 6-year follow-up of community death registers. The mortality risk of neurotic and psychotic depression was calculated after adjustment for demographic variables, physical illness, cognitive decline and functional disabilities.. Results A total of 75% of men and 41% of women with psychotic depression had died at follow-up. Psychotic depression was associated with significant excess mortality in both men and women. Neurotic depression was associated with a 1.67-fold higher mortality risk in men only.. Conclusions In the elderly, major depressive syndromes increase the risk of death in both men and women, but ...

Background: High rates of postpartum relapse occur in women with histories of bipolar or schizoaffective disorder. These relapses may be triggered by the postdelivery fall in circulating estrogen through alteration of central neurotransmitter (especially dopaminergic) systems. This study tested the hypothesis that estrogen administration after childbirth would prevent postpartum relapse and would alter dopamine receptor sensitivity. Method: Twenty-nine pregnant women with a Research Diagnostic Criteria diagnosis of hypomania (bipolar II), mania (bipolar I), or schizoaffective disorder participated in an open clinical trial. Three transdermal dose regimens of estrogen (17beta-estradiol) were tested. Starting doses were 200 (N = 13), 400 (N = 3), and 800 (N = 13) micrograms/day, beginning within 48 hours after delivery and reduced by one half every 4 days for a total of 12 days. On the fourth day after starting estradiol therapy (before relapse occurred), subjects participated in a neuroendocrine ...
Objective: Functional recovery remains the primary goal following treatment of a psychotic disorder, especially after a first episode. Evidence regarding relative contributions of predictors of functional outcome, including symptoms and cognition, remains equivocal. The objective of the study was to determine the relative contribution of cognition, in particular verbal memory, and symptomatic remission to social and occupational functioning while controlling for established predictors of functioning in a large sample of patients presenting with a first episode of a schizophrenia spectrum or affective psychosis.. Method: Patients (aged 14-35 years) met DSM-IV criteria for a first episode of a schizophrenia spectrum or affective psychosis and had been admitted to the Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, between 2003 and 2009 for treatment and follow-up for 2 years. Established predictors (duration of untreated psychosis, medication adherence, age at ...
Psychotic depression is often a difficult illness to diagnose and treat. Consider another common scenario. An elderly woman walks into her kitchen and discovers her husband pointing a shotgun at himself. She convinces him to put the gun down and go to see their doctor. She is completely shocked about the suicidal behavior and did not see it coming. They have been married for 40 years. Her husband had no prior history of suicidal behavior or depression. As they talk with his primary care physician, she corroborates that he seemed to have been sleeping well, but seemed less spontaneous and "happy". She was shocked to find out that he had lost about 15 pounds. He is sent to a local hospital where he talks with a psychiatrist and at one point says: "I just could not go on living anymore." Further questioning leads to a discussion of an event that occurred when he was in high school (over 65 years ago) that he was guilty and embarrassed about. His worries about the event continued to build until he ...

Amish Study of Major Affective Disorders. Two Tiers of Data Access. The NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository has distributed samples from Dr. Janice Egelands studies on bipolar disease in the Old Order Amish since 1982. Samples from approximately 250 subjects have been available with clinical data since the late 1980s. In the last few years Dr. Egeland has collected samples from additional members of the family and submitted additional cell lines prepared by her colleague Dr. Ed Ginns. These cell lines and DNA are now available under limited conditions.. As with any genetic study of a small community or population, there are concerns that the privacy of the extended family might be compromised if the pedigree were openly available on the web catalog. Following discussions with Dr. Egeland and with the input from the NIGMS Scientific Advisory Committee, the Repository has developed a two tier scheme for access to the clinical and pedigree information for the Old Order Amish Major Affective ...
Megalomania is a disorder of mentality at which the consciousness or behavior of the person is seriously broken. It is shown in revaluation of own importance, popularity, wealth, power, significance. The megalomania isnt considered as an individual disease, but as a symptom at maniacal syndrome, paranoia, or as one of inferiority complex types.. Causes of disorder development have not been yet investigated, but it is supposed that megalomania causes are:. - strong stressful situations;. - mental injuries;. - complications of general paralysis;. - affective psychoses;. - paraphrenic schizophrenia.. Symptoms of megalomania:. - revaluation by the patient of the importance, physical and mental abilities;. - narcissism (narcissism);. - hyperactivity, garrulity;. - concentration on own thoughts.. - frequent change of mood;. - lack of interest to the opinion of people around;. - aggression in relation to people around;. - sleeplessness..

The mystical delirium differs in expressed mystical content of patient experiences, his conviction that there is something mysterious, inexplicable. The mystical delirium includes crazy ideas of religious contents, stories of the patient about the other world.. Religious experience requires consideration of religious and mystical states. Naturally, there are differences between not pathological and pathological mystical phenomena. But differences between them arent obvious. Inspirations, revelations, prophecies, apparitions, ecstatic experiences and obsession are known for many millennia. They are understood ambiguously by psychiatrists; isnt found out when they express religious experience and when relate to psychopathology.. The mystical feeling of release and pleasure pulls together religious and mystical states with a maniacal phase of affective psychosis. Voices, orders, feeling of management of the highest forces are similar to a hallucinatory paranoid syndrome. Leaving from the outside ...

Not only are these observations well documented in the scientific literature, but recent observations also suggest that each type of sensitization can show cross-sensitization to the other two types. That is, individuals exposed to repeated stressors are more likely both to experience affective illness episodes and to adopt comorbid substance abuse. In a similar way, episodes of an affective disorder and stressors may also be associated with the relapse into drug administration in those who have been abstinent.. In addition to these mechanisms of illness progression in the recurrent affective disorders, the new article reviews the literature showing that the number of affective episodes or the duration of the illness appear to be associated with a variety of other clinical and neurobiological variables.. The number of affective episodes a patient experiences is associated with the degree of cognitive dysfunction present in their bipolar illness, and experiencing more than 4 episodes of unipolar ...

Objective: The aim of this study was to construct a rating scale to predict long-term outcome on the basis of clinical and sociodemographic characteristics in patients with symptoms of psychosis who seek psychiatric help for the first time. Method: Patients (N = 153) experiencing their first episode of psychosis (DSM-IV schizophrenia, schizophreniform disorder, schizoaffective disorder, brief psychotic episode, delusional disorder, affective psychosis with mood-incongruent delusions, or psychotic disorder not otherwise specified or being actively psychotic) were consecutively recruited from 17 psychiatric clinics in Sweden from January 1996 through December 1997 (24 months). Baseline characteristics were assessed with an extensive battery of psychiatric rating scales; duration of untreated psychosis, premorbid characteristics, and cognitive functioning were also assessed. The relationship between baseline characteristics and the 5-year outcome was analyzed using a stepwise logistic regression ...
We investigated these issues in a group of patients with schizophrenia (n=94), affective psychosis (n=63), other psychosis (n=26); their respective first-degree relatives (total n=183) and a control group (n=85). A narrow definition of mixed-handedness was used corresponding to groups 5 and 6 as defined by the Annett Handedness Questionnaire.. We found an excess of mixed-handedness in the schizophrenic group compared with controls (OR=5.2, 1.4-18.6, p,0.006). There was no difference between the other psychotic groups and controls. There was a trend for an excess of mixed-handedness in the first-degree relatives (n=99) of schizophrenic patients (p=0.055), but not in the relatives of affective or other psychotic patients. There was a striking linear trend in the proportion of mixed-handedness between controls, the relatives and the schizophrenic patients (chi2=7.0, p=0.008). There was no association between mixed-handedness and a history of pregnancy or birth complications in the schizophrenic ...
OBJECTIVE: The authors investigated the structural brain correlates of antisaccade performance. METHOD: Magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure the volumes of the prefrontal, premotor, sensorimotor, and occipitoparietal cortices as well as the caudate, thalamus, cerebellar vermis, and cerebrum in 20 first-episode psychosis patients and 18 healthy comparison subjects. Antisaccades were recorded by using infrared oculography. RESULTS: Groups significantly differed in terms of antisaccade error rate and amplitude gain and tended to differ in terms of latency but not brain region volumes. Premotor cortex volume predicted antisaccade error rate among comparison subjects. In the patient group, caudate volume was related to latency and amplitude gain. Negative symptoms, independent of structural volumes, predicted error rate. CONCLUSIONS: These findings point to altered structure-function relationships in first-episode psychosis.. ...

Heretofore the pathogenesis of schizophrenia and affective disorder have been unclear. Evidence from family, twin and adoption studies indicate that both genetic and environmental factors are involved in the etiology of these diseases. Molecular genetics studies suggest that they may be heterogenous and polygenic diseases. Despite the widely accepted view that schizophrenia and affective disorder represent independent illnesses and have different modes of inheritance, some data in the literature suggest that these diseases may share some genetic susceptibility. Many linkage analyses have suggested that the chromosome 6q region could harbor susceptibility loci to schizophrenia. Recently loci for affective disorder were reported to map in the 6q region. These results suggest that the relationship between chromosome 6q and susceptibility to schizophrenia or affective disorder deserves further study. Craddock et al [4] by meta-analysis and Kohn et al [29] by a topographic approach reviewed all ...
Affective disorders such as for example anxiety, phobia and depression certainly are a leading reason behind disabilities world-wide. al /em ., 2014[61]; Terry em et al /em ., 2013[100]). Searching for an progress within this field of analysis and therapy, we discuss the technological method of affective disorders and their putative human brain correlates. First, we talk about conceptual problems and using equipment as the conceptual space construction (Gardenfors, 2000[32]). Second, we discuss the physical-biological framework (transmitters, modulators, receptors) experimentally linked to the phenomena. Third, we discuss the chance of the integrative style of four simple psychological emotions and related neuromodulators involved with affective disorders. A clarification between neurotransmission and neuromodulation will be to be able before we move forward further. About the neurobiological terminology utilized here, and how exactly we understand it, transmitting of sensory and endogenous ...

Abstract. It is proposed that happiness be classified as a psychiatric disorder and be included in future editions of the major diagnostic manuals under the new name: major affective disorder, pleasant type. In a review of the relevant literature it is shown that happiness is statistically abnormal, consists of a discrete cluster of symptoms, is associated with a range of cognitive abnormalities, and probably reflects the abnormal functioning of the central nervous system. One possible objection to this proposal remains-that happiness is not negatively valued. However, this objection is dismissed as scientifically irrelevant.. PMID: 1619629 ...

Objective: To compare neurological soft signs (NSS) in patients of schizophrenia with onset in childhood (COS), adolescence (AdOS) and adulthood (AOS).. Method: Assessment of NSS in 15 patients of COS and 20 patients each of AdOS and AOS was made using condensed neuropsychiatric examination for NSS.. Results: NSS were significantly more frequent in COS (100%) and AdOS (90%) when compared with AOS (55%) patients. COS patients showed significantly higher scores on temporal and frontal lobe NSS, of which differences between the three groups in temporal lobe NSS disappeared on ancova. Parietal lobe dependent NSS were seen in a few COS patients. The NSS were more in those with lesser IQ, lower education and higher Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale scores.. Conclusion: Findings indicate that earlier onset types may be more strongly associated with a generalized disruption of brain function. Non-suppression of primitive reflexes with cortical maturation in COS point towards disordered ...
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)).

While cognitive impairments are prevalent in first-episode psychosis, the course of these deficits is not fully understood. Most deficits appear to remain stable, however there is uncertainty regarding the trajectory of specific cognitive domains after illness onset. This study investigates the longitudinal course of cognitive deficits four years after a first-episode of psychosis and the relationship of performance with clinical course and response to treatment. Twenty three individuals with psychotic illness, matched with 21 healthy volunteers, were assessed using the MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery at illness onset and 4years later. We also investigated the relationship between cognitive deficits and quality of life and clinical indices. Verbal learning and two measures of processing speed had marked poorer trajectory over four years compared to the remaining cognitive domains. Processing speed performance was found to contribute to the cognitive deficits in psychosis. Poorer clinical ...
SUMMARY. Aims - To assess in a national sample the ability of GPs to detect psychiatric disorders using a clinical vs. a standardized interview and to characterize the patients that were falsely diagnosed with an anxiety or affective disorder. Methods - This is a national, cross-sectional, epidemiological survey, carried out by GPs on a random sample of their patients. The GPs were randomly divided into two groups. Apart from the routine clinical interview, the experimental group (group A) had to administer the Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI). Results - Data was collected by 143 GPs. 17.2% of all patients had a clinical diagnosis of an affective disorder, and 25.4% a clinical diagnosis of an anxiety disorder. In group A, the number of clinical diagnoses was about twice that of MINI diagnoses for affective disorders and one and a half times that for anxiety disorders. The majority of clinical diagnoses were represented by MINI subsyndromal cases (52.3%). Females showed a ...

Background: The gene ANK3 is implicated in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The present study investigated the influence of this gene on cognitive performance and brain structure among individuals with first-episode psychosis (FEP). The brief illness duration of an FEP sample makes it well suited for studying the effects of genetic variation.. Methods: We genotyped 2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs; rs1938526 and rs10994336) in ANK3 in patients with FEP. Multivariate analysis of variance compared risk allele carriers and noncarriers on 6 domains of cognition consistent with MATRICS consensus. A subsample of 82 patients was assessed using magnetic resonance imaging. We compared brain structure between carriers and noncarriers using cortical thickness analysis and voxelbased morphometry on white matter.. Results: In the 173 patients with FEP included in our study, rs1938526 and rs10994336 were in very high linkage disequilibrium (d = 0.95), and analyses were therefore only carried out on ...
Based on limited data, it is generally thought that pregnancy may protect against recurrence of major affective disorders or suicide. The postpartum period, however, is widely considered a high-risk period for recurrence of potentially severe and life-threatening episodes of major affective disorders. Use of antimanic agents (lithium, valproate, carbamazepine) is complicated because of the balance between some fetal teratogenic risk, the risk of untreated psychiatric illness during pregnancy and the early relapse of manic-depressive illness following cessation of medication. Viguera and associates studied whether pregnancy is associated with a greater or lesser risk of recurring mania or bipolar depression, and whether pregnant and nonpregnant women respond differently to treatment cessation.. Women with bipolar illness who discontinued lithium maintenance treatment were evaluated. Forty-two pregnant women were followed throughout pregnancy and for 24 weeks postpartum and compared with 59 ...

METHOD: The Suffolk County Mental Health Project recruited first-admission patients with psychosis from all inpatient units of Suffolk County, New York (response rate, 72%). Participants were assessed in person six times over two decades; 373 completed the 20-year follow-up (68% of survivors); 175 had schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder. Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF), psychotic symptoms, and mood symptoms were rated at each assessment. Month 6, when nearly all participants were discharged from the index hospitalization, was used as a reference. RESULTS: In the schizophrenia group, mean GAF scores declined from 49 at month 6 to 36 at year 20. Negative and ...

Long acting injection versus oral risperidone in first-episode schizophrenia: differential impact on white matter myelination trajectory.
Schizoaffective disorder shows both the psychotic thought problems of schizophrenia and the mood problems of major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.
Schizoaffective disorder is the name of a mental health condition that simultaneously produces some of the symptoms commonly associated with schizophrenia and some of the symptoms commonly associated with mood disorders such as major depression or bipolar disorder.
During childhood and adolescence, a change in residence is likely initiated by guardians. Our results could be explained in that the breakup of social networks when moving disrupts the developing ability to make new friends and maintain friendships. This could lead to increased social isolation, which again makes one vulnerable to mental illness including psychotic disorders. However, past 20 years old, moving is likely a personal choice by the individual. We found that longer distances moved predicted a lower likelihood of being diagnosed with a non-affective psychotic disorder past 20 years old. This could be explained by the fact that the personal choice made reflects health and independence as the individual moves out from their parents house and enters work or attends university. Meanwhile, it would be more difficult for individuals vulnerable to non-affective psychotic disorders to move out and enter work or university, due to symptoms revolved around cognitive deficits as well as the ...

Prodrome or at risk mental state clinics are specialist services for those with subclinical symptoms of psychosis or other indicators of risk of transition to psychosis. The Pace Clinic[22] in Melbourne, Australia, is considered one of the origins of this strategy,[23] but a number of other services and research centers have since developed.[24] [25] These services are able to reliably identify those at high risk of developing psychosis[26] and are beginning to publish encouraging outcomes from randomised controlled trials that reduce the chances of becoming psychotic,[27] including evidence that psychological therapy[28] and high doses of fish oil[29] have a role in the prevention of psychosis. However, a meta-analysis of five trials found that while these interventions reduced risk of psychosis after 1 year (11% conversion to psychosis in intervention groups compared to 32% in control groups), these gains were not maintained over 2-3 years of follow-up.[30] These findings indicate that ...

... is a chronic mental health condition characterized primarily by symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations or delusions, and symptoms of a mood disorder, such as mania and depression. Because schizoaffective disorder is less well-studied than the other two conditions, many interventions are borrowed from their treatment approaches.. Many people with schizoaffective disorder are often incorrectly diagnosed at first with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia because it shares symptoms of multiple mental health conditions.. Schizoaffective disorder is seen in about 0.3% of the population. Men and women experience schizoaffective disorder at the same rate, but men often develop the illness at an earlier age. Schizoaffective disorder can be managed effectively with medication and therapy. Co-occurring substance use disorders are a serious risk and require integrated treatment.. ...

More recently, artificial neural networks and in particular deep learning have set a revolutionary wave in pattern recognition and machine learning. This study proposes a novel machine learning approach based on neural network and deep learning algorithms, to developing highly accurate predictive models for the onset of first-episode psychosis. Our approach is based also on a novel methodology of optimising and post-processing the ...
Patients with schizophrenia have intact ability to experience emotion, but empirical evidence suggests that they fail to translate emotional salience into effortful behavior. Previous research in patients with chronic schizophrenia suggests that working memory is important in integrating emotion and behavior.. Dr. CHAN Raymond and his team from the Institute of Psychology of Chinese Academy of Sciences have examined emotion-behavior coupling in patients with first-episode schizophrenia. This work is based on a joint research-clinical programme of early psychosis intervention between Castle Peak Hospital in Hong Kong and Institute of Psychology. Dr. LUI Simon (a former doctoral graduate of Dr. Chan) is the person in-charge of the early psychosis programme.. Participants were 72 patients with first-episode schizophrenia and 61 healthy controls. All participants completed a sophistical behavioral paradigm which elicited their emotion using IAPS pictures and measured their effortful behavior for ...
Schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorders affect a persons ability to distinguish reality from fantasy. Schizophrenia affects about 1% of the U.S. population and schizoaffective disorders affect about 0.3% of Americans. People with schizoaffective disorders have symptoms of schizophrenia as well as symptoms of mood disorders, such as depression or mania.
Mechanisms underlying the female preponderance in affective disorders are poorly understood. Here we show that hippocampal nitric oxide (NO) plays a role in the sex difference of depression-like behaviors in rodents. Female mice had substantially lower NO production in the hippocampus and were significantly more likely to display negative affective behaviors than their male littermates. Eliminating the difference in the basal hippocampal NO level between male and female mice mended the sex gap of affective behaviors. Estradiol exerted a positive control on hippocampal NO production via estrogen receptor-β-mediated neuronal NO synthase expression. Thus, low estrogen in the female hippocampus accounts for lower local NO than in the male hippocampus. Although estrogen has important significance in modulating affective behaviors, it is not estrogen but NO in the hippocampus that mediates the sex difference of affective behaviors directly, because hippocampal NO was necessary for the behavioral ...

If symptoms are present, the doctor will perform a complete medical history and physical examination. Although there are no laboratory tests to specifically diagnose schizoaffective disorder, the doctor might use various diagnostic tests-such as X-rays or blood tests-to rule out physical illness as the cause of the symptoms.. If the doctor finds no physical reason for the symptoms, he or she might refer the person to a psychiatrist or psychologist, health care professionals who are specially trained to diagnose and treat mental illness.. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed interview and assessment tools to evaluate a person for a psychotic disorder. The doctor or therapist bases his or her diagnosis on the persons report of symptoms, and his or her observation of the persons attitude and behavior.. The doctor or therapist then determines if the persons symptoms point to a specific disorder as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), ...

An apparent suicidal feline attraction and risk behavioural profile among untreated infected individuals was clearly evident here. Under natural conditions, these are all behavioural traits likely to increase predation rate by the definitive host and hence completion of the parasites life cycle (Webster 2001), either through increased risk behaviours (presence in areas with evidence of cat presence), conspicuousness (increased activity or still and exposed), or through decreased attention on predator avoidance (grooming in exposed areas) relative to their untreated uninfected counterparts (figure 2, table 2). Treatment of infected rats with, in order of decreasing efficacy: HAL, PD and VAL, reduced these predator-risk behavioural traits. Therefore, our results lend support to the hypothesis that the anti-psychotic and mood stabilizing activity of some medications used in the treatment of schizophrenia and human affective disorder may be augmented through their inhibitory impact upon T. gondii in ...
