In a study of new applicants for recent vision loss rehabilitative services, 7% had current major depression and 26.9% met the criteria for subthreshold depression.
Background: Many studies have established that a large percentage of patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have comorbid major depressive disorder. Other studies have found that patients with PTSD or a history of childhood trauma have an increased rate of psychotic symptoms. In the present report from the Rhode Island Methods to Improve Diagnosis and Services project, we examine whether an association exists between psychotic subtyping of major depressive disorder and PTSD.. Method: Five hundred psychiatric outpatients were interviewed with the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV. Results: Almost half of the 500 patients had nonbipolar major depressive disorder (N = 235, 47.0%), 45 (19.1%) of whom had PTSD. Nineteen patients had psychotic depression, 216 had nonpsychotic depression. Compared with patients with nonpsychotic depression, the patients with psychotic depression were nearly 4 times more likely to have PTSD (57.9% vs. 15.7%, Fisher exact test, p = .0001). Conclusion: ...
Title:Catechol-O-Methyltransferase (COMT) Pharmacogenetics in the Treatment Response Phenotypes of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). VOLUME: 11 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Neslihan Aygun Kocabas. Affiliation:Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Laboratoire de Neurologie Experimentale, Campus Hopital Erasme C2.124, 808 Route de Lennik, 1070 Bruxelles, Belgium.. Keywords:COMT gene, pharmacogenetics, antidepressant, treatment response, snp, Catechol O Methyl Transferase, Major Depressive disorder , COMT, MDD, rs4680, Antidepressant treatment, Dopamine. Abstract:Psychiatry is a specialty where the application of pharmacogenomics approaches is made to the study of interindividual differences in response to antidepressants. It is highly applied for improving patient treatment. Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a common and complex disorder resulting from genetic and environmental interactions. Less than 40% of patients with MDD achieve remission, and even after several treatment trials, one in three patients do not ...
This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter proof-of-principle trial of adjunctive minocycline for patients with unipolar major depressive disorder (MDD). The study tests the antidepressant efficacy of minocycline as an adjunct to an antidepressant standard treatment with es-/citalopram, venlafaxine or mirtazapine monotherapy (AD-ST), for patients with unipolar major depressive disorder (MDD). The respective AD, for which non-response has been documented, must be on a stable regimen for at least 14 days prior to inclusion. AD-ST will then be continued throughout the trial. Trial medication is adjunct oral minocycline 200 mg/day or placebo. Response to treatment will be measured via the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS). The total study duration for each patient will be 6 weeks ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine the associations between diabetes, disability, and the likelihood of comorbid major depressive disorder (MDD) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).METHODS: Data were obtained from the 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey - Mental Health (N=17 623). Diabetes assessment consisted of a self-reported diagnosis of diabetes made by a health care professional. Disability was assessed via self-report. 12-Month and lifetime MDD and GAD were assessed with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview 3.0.RESULTS: In multinomial logistic regression models adjusted for sociodemographic and health-related factors, having diabetes was associated with a greater likelihood of 12-month comorbid MDD and GAD (OR=1.99, 95% CI [1.22, 3.25], p=.006), compared with those with neither MDD nor GAD. No significant associations were found for MDD without GAD or GAD without MDD. This pattern of effects held when lifetime diagnoses of MDD and GAD were considered. For individuals with diabetes ...
Objective: Differences in dosing may influence results of pharmaceutical industry-sponsored medication trials. This study aims to determine the relationship between sponsorship and antidepressant dosing and efficacy in randomized controlled trials for major depressive disorder.. Data Sources: Trials were identified through English-language searches of MEDLINE and PsycINFO (January 1996-June 2010) using specific drug names and classes and depressive disorder or major depression and double blind or double-blind method. Other limitations included human subjects and treatment study designs using the clinical queries option. Other sources were also searched following a strict set of inclusion and exclusion criteria.. Study Selection: Randomized controlled trials were included if they examined antidepressant treatment for major depressive disorder, reported mean final medication dosages, acknowledged an association with industry, and included study arms of medications produced by the associated ...
121 outpatients ≥ 65 years of age (mean age 75 y, 77% women) with unipolar major depression (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition [DSM-IV], 296.2x or 296.3x and Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale [MADRS] score ≥ 22) who responded to acute and continuation treatment with citalopram (20 to 40 mg) for 8 and 16 weeks, respectively. Response to both phases of treatment was defined by a MADRS score ≤ 11. Exclusion criteria included an index episode that lasted , 12 months; a history of schizophrenia, mania, hypomania, epilepsy, or drug or alcohol misuse; and a score of ≥ 5 on MADRS item 10 (suicidality). Follow-up was 100 ...
The word depression is often used by people to describe feelings of sadness or unhappiness, which all people experience at sometime in their lives. These meanings of depression can be confused with the word depression used to denote a serious mental disorder.. Clinical depression is not just feeling sad, it is a medical condition that affects the way mood is controlled by the brain. This leads to a variety of signs and symptoms that result in many problems in a persons life. This guide provides an overview of adolescent major depressive disorder, providing the reader with an understanding of the brain and mood control, what happens in depression and information about a wide variety of areas including: symptoms, treatment, why depression happens, myths and facts, resources and a glossary of terms.. ...
Background:. - Drugs and talk therapy help treat depression, but these treatments usually take quite a bit of time to work. Ketamine is a fast-acting antidepressant, but it has side effects like unusual dreams and experiences. The drug AV-101 may have the same antidepressant effects but fewer side effects. Researchers want to see if it is effective and safe for people with major depressive disorder.. Objective:. - To see if the drug, AV-101 is safe and if it treats symptoms of major depressive disorder.. Eligibility:. - Adults ages 18 65 with major depression without psychotic features.. Design:. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Regional brain volume reductions in major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. T2 - An analysis by voxel-based morphometry. AU - Niida, Richi. AU - Yamagata, Bun. AU - Matsuda, Hiroshi. AU - Niida, Akira. AU - Uechi, Akihiko. AU - Kito, Shinsuke. AU - Mimura, Masaru. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Objectives: The present study investigated the usefulness of evaluating the existence of volume reduction in brain regions using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) to dissociate major depressive disorder (MDD) from bipolar disorder (BD). Methods/Design: This study enrolled 92 individuals with MDD, 32 individuals with BD, and 43 healthy controls (HCs). We focused on gray matter volume (GMV) of the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC), subcallosal area (SCA), and hippocampus. The degree of volume reduction in these brain regions was calculated as the z score, and the differences of z scores in these regions were investigated among the MDD, BD, and HC groups. We then performed a ...
This is to our knowledge the first study investigating the impact of brain white-matter hyperintensities on antidepressant treatment outcome in a non-geriatric study sample. There are several important findings in this study. First, although we found no correlation between global white-matter hyperintensity measures and clinical outcome, subcortical hyperintensities in the left hemisphere were associated with poor outcome of antidepressant treatment. Previous studies in geriatric populations have described an association between subcortical and basal ganglia white-matter hyperintensity (and not periventricular hyperintensity) and poor treatment outcome in major depressive disorder (Hickie et al, 1997; OBrien et al, 1998; Simpson et al, 1998; Steffens et al, 2002). However, to our knowledge there is no other report indicating a differential impact of left-hemisphere subcortical white-matter hyperintensity on treatment outcome in major depressive disorder. Further studies will be needed to ...
Increasing amounts of data suggest that affective disorders might be related to dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, one of the stress-response systems. Arginine vasopressin (AVP) influences several symptoms, relevant to affective disorders, notable memory processes, pain sensitivity, synchronization of biological rhythms and the timing and quality of REM sleep. We examined whether genetic variations in the AVP receptor 1b gene (AVPR1b) could be associated with increased susceptibility to affective disorders using a gene-based association analysis of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Five SNPs were identified in AVPR1b and genotyped in two well-diagnosed samples of patients with recurrent major depression and matched controls. In the Swedish sample, we observed significant allele (P=0.02) and genotype (P=0.01) association with SNP AVPR1b-s3, and in the Belgian sample, a borderline significant association with SNP AVPR1b-s5 (P=0.04). In both patient-control ...
Definition: a pervasive and persistent low mood, accompanied by low self-esteem, and a loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities for more than two weeks. Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a disabling condition that adversely affects a persons family, work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health. Long-term substance abuse may worsen the symptoms of major depression.. Symptoms: Five or more of the following symptoms need to be present in order to diagnose Major Depressive Disorder: depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day as indicated by a subjective report or observation by others; diminished interest or pleasure in all or almost all activities most of the day; significant weight loss (when not dieting) or weight gain (5% in a month) or increase/decrease in appetite; inability to sleep or sleep too much; restlessness or purposeless activity or physical movement slows down; fatigue or loss of energy; feelings of worthlessness or ...
Mental disorders are a major cause of long-term disability and are a direct cause of mortality, with approximately 800.000 individuals dying from suicide every year worldwide ? a high proportion of them related to major depressive disorder (MDD)1. Healthy relatives of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) are at risk to develop the disease. This higher vulnerability is associated with structural2-4 and functional brain changes5. However, we found using high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) with 61 diffusion directions that neuron tracts between frontal cortices and limbic as well as temporal and parietal brain regions are characterized by better diffusion coefficients in unaffected relatives (UHR), who managed to stay healthy, compared to healthy volunteers without any family history for a psychiatric disease (HC). Moreover, those UHR with stronger fibre connections better managed incidences of adversity in early life without later developing depression, while in HC axonal ...
The aetiology of suicidal behaviour is complex, and knowledge about its neurobiological mechanisms is limited. Neuroimaging methods provide a noninvasive approach to explore the neural correlates of suicide vulnerability in vivo. The ENIGMA-MDD Working Group is an international collaboration evaluating neuroimaging and clinical data from thousands of individuals collected by research groups from around the world. Here we present analyses in a subset sample (n=3097) for whom suicidality data were available. Prevalence of suicidal symptoms among major depressive disorder (MDD) cases ranged between 29 and 69% across cohorts. We compared mean subcortical grey matter volumes, lateral ventricle volumes and total intracranial volume (ICV) in MDD patients with suicidal symptoms (N=451) vs healthy controls (N=1996) or MDD patients with no suicidal symptoms (N=650). MDD patients reporting suicidal plans or attempts showed a smaller ICV (P=4.12 × 10−3) or a 2.87% smaller volume compared with controls (Cohens d

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a debilitating mental disease with a pronounced impact on the quality of life of many people; however, it is still difficult to diagnose MDD accurately. In this study, a nontargeted metabolomics approach based on ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography equipped with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-Q-TOF/MS) was used to find the differential metabolites in plasma samples from patients with MDD and healthy controls. Furthermore, a validation analysis focusing on the differential metabolites was performed in another batch of samples using a targeted approach based on the dynamic multiple reactions monitoring method. Levels of acyl carnitines, ether lipids, and tryptophan pronouncedly decreased, whereas LPCs, LPEs, and PEs markedly increased in MDD subjects as compared with the healthy controls. Disturbed pathways, mainly located in acyl carnitine metabolism, lipid metabolism, and tryptophan metabolism, were clearly brought to light in MDD ...
In adults with major depressive disorder, adding aripiprazole to antidepressant therapy (ADT) resulted in significant improvement in the primary endpoint, the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score.
Abstract Despite the heterogeneous symptom presentation and complex etiology of major depressive disorder (MDD), functional neuroimaging studies have shown with remarkable consistency that dysfunction in mesocorticolimbic brain systems are central to the disorder. Relatively less research has focused on the identification of biological markers of response to antidepressant treatment that would serve to improve the personalized delivery of empirically supported antidepressant interventions. In the present study, we investigated whether resting-state functional brain connectivity (rs-fcMRI) predicted response to Behavioral Activation Treatment for Depression, an empirically validated psychotherapy modality designed to increase engagement with rewarding stimuli and reduce avoidance behaviors. Twenty-three unmedicated outpatients with MDD and 20 matched nondepressed controls completed rs-fcMRI scans after which the MDD group received an average of 12 sessions of psychotherapy. The mean change in ...
One barrier to interpreting past studies of cognition and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) has been the failure in many studies to adequately dissociate the effects of MDD from the potential cognitive side effects of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) use. To better understand how remediation of depressive symptoms affects cognitive function in MDD, we evaluated three groups of subjects: medication-naïve patients with MDD, medicated patients with MDD receiving the SSRI paroxetine and healthy control subjects. All were administered a category-learning task that allows for dissociation between learning from positive feedback (reward) versus learning from negative feedback (punishment). Healthy subjects learned significantly better from positive feedback than medication-naïve and medicated MDD groups, whose learning accuracy did not differ significantly. In contrast, medicated patients with MDD learned significantly less from negative feedback than medication-naïve patients with MDD and
Objective To investigate the risk factors that contribute to smoking in female patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and the clinical features in depressed smokers. Methods We examined the smoking status and clinical features in 6120 Han Chinese women with MDD (DSM-IV) between 30 and 60 years of age across China. Logistic regression was used to determine the association between clinical features of MDD and smoking status and between risk factors for MDD and smoking status. Results Among the recurrent MDD patients there were 216(3.6%) current smokers, 117 (2.0%) former smokers and 333(5.6%) lifetime smokers. Lifetime smokers had a slightly more severe illness, characterized by more episodes, longer duration, more comorbid illness (panic and phobias), with more DSM-IV A criteria and reported more symptoms of fatigue and suicidal ideation or attempts than never smokers. Some known risk factors for MDD were also differentially represented among smokers compared to non-smokers. Smokers reported
Summary Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the most common psychiatric diseases worldwide. It is characterized by single or recurrent major depressive episodes (MDEs), where patients can typically experience periods of depressed mood, loss of energy, abnormal cognition, anxiety and suicidal ideation. Similar to other neuropsychiatric disorders, MDD has a multifaceted and varied etiology, a
Background: Major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder are among the most commonly diagnosed mental illnesses in Canada; both are associated with a high societal and economic burden. Treatment for major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder consists of pharmacological and psychological interventions. Three commonly used psychological interventions are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, and supportive therapy. The objectives of this report were to assess the effectiveness and safety of these types of therapy for the treatment of adults with major depressive disorder and/or generalized anxiety disorder, to assess the cost-effectiveness of structured psychotherapy (CBT or interpersonal therapy), to calculate the budget impact of publicly funding structured psychotherapy, and to gain a greater understanding of the experiences of people with major depressive disorder and/or generalized anxiety disorder ...

AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate heart rate variability (HRV) in a clinical sample of female adolescents with anxiety disorders (AD) and/or major depressive disorder (MDD) compared with healthy controls and to assess the effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) on HRV.. METHODS: Heart rate variability was measured in adolescent female psychiatric patients with AD and/or MDD (n = 69), mean age 16.8 years (range: 14.5-18.4), from 13 out-patient clinics and in healthy controls (n = 65), mean age 16.5 years (range: 15.9-17.7). HRV was registered in the sitting position during 4 min with no interventions.. RESULTS: Logarithmically transformed high frequency HRV (HF), low frequency HRV (LF) and standard deviation of inter beat intervals (SDNN) were lower in the clinical sample compared with the controls (Cohens d for HF = 0.57, LF = 0.55, SDNN = 0.60). This was not explained by body mass index, blood pressure or physical activity. Medication with SSRI explained 15.5% of ...

We investigated the influence of detached mindfulness (DM) in treating symptoms of depression and anxiety among elderly women. Thirty-four elderly females (mean age: 69.23 years) suffering from moderate major depressive disorders (MDD) and treated with a standard medication (citalopram) at therapeutic doses were randomly assigned either to an intervention condition (DM; group treatment, twice weekly) or to a control condition (with leisure activities, twice weekly). At baseline (BL), four weeks later at study completion (SC), and four weeks after that at follow-up (FU), participants completed ratings for symptoms of depression and anxiety; experts blind to patients group assignments rated patients symptoms of depression. Symptoms of depression (self and experts ratings) and anxiety declined significantly over time in the DM, but not in the control condition. Effects remained stable at FU. The pattern of results suggests that, compared to a control condition, a specific psychotherapeutic ...
A study presented today at the 160th Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association showed that, in adults with major depressive disorder, adding ABILIFY(R)(aripiprazole) to antidepressant therapy resulted in significant improvement in the primary endpoint, the MADRS Total Score. A reduction in MADRS Total Score represents improvement in depressive symptoms.

BACKGROUND: There is increasing evidence for a link between cerebrovascular disease and depression in the elderly but the mechanisms are still unknown. This study examines the longitudinal relationship between depression and white matter lesions (WML) in a sample of elderly aged 65 years and older. METHODS: Three City (3C)-Dijon is a 4-year follow-up population-based prospective study of 1658 subjects. At baseline, lifetime major depressive episode diagnosis was established using the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview. At each study wave, severity of depressive symptoms was assessed using Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression (CES-D), and antidepressants intake was recorded. At baseline, lifetime major depression (LMD) was defined as lifetime major depressive episode or antidepressant medication intake. At follow-up, subjects were classified incident depression if scoring high at CES-D or antidepressant users. At baseline, cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed to
After a year of treatment with minimal improvement, I suggested Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. The patient agreed and within three weeks she was back doing crossword puzzles and cooking. Within four weeks she was spending more time with her grandchildren - she looked forward to going to work, her concentration was much better, she reconnected with her friends, enjoyed going out to dinner with family, gained back weight she had lost and felt her life was meaningful again.. TMS is the latest non-pharmaceutical treatment modality for major depressive disorder that does not respond to other treatments. In a large clinical trial done by the National Institute of Mental Health involving more than 4,000 patients, it was found that only 30 percent of patients treated with antidepressants were totally free of any symptoms of depression.. TMS works by stimulating key neurons in the brain believed to be involved in the pathophysiology of depression. Unlike antidepressants that are swallowed and ...

We expected DES subjects to show greater lifetime psychopathology and poorer social functioning than controls. Both groups showed high rates of lifetime depression, lifetime alcoholism, and current psychiatric symptoms in excess of community norms.. The only diagnosis on which DES subjects exceeded their unexposed brothers was Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). DES-exposed men had almost twice the prevalence of at least one episode of MDD and had significantly more recurrent episodes.. The relatively small number of subjects with concomitant lack of statistical power may have contributed to the difficulty obtaining significant effects. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of neuroinflammation and neurovascular dysfunction in major depressive disorder. AU - Jeon, Sang Won. AU - Kim, Yong Ku. PY - 2018/5/8. Y1 - 2018/5/8. N2 - Although depression has generally been explained with monoamine theory, it is far more multifactorial, and therapies that address the diseases pathway have not been developed. In this context, an understanding of neuroinflammation and neurovascular dysfunction would enable a more comprehensive approach to depression. Inflammation is in a sense a type of allostatic load involving the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems. Neuroinflammation is involved in the pathophysiology of depression by increasing proinflammatory cytokines, activating the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, increasing glucocorticoid resistance, and affecting serotonin synthesis and metabolism, neuronal apoptosis and neurogenesis, and neuroplasticity. In future, identifying the subtypes of depression with increased vulnerability to inflammation ...
