"The pilot examined the feasibility of conducting a randomized controlled trial of acupuncture compared with an active control in an inpatient setting, to examine individuals' experience of the interventions, clinical outcomes from the trial, and to integrate data to explain the trial findings," an abstract on www.pubmed.gov noted.. The subjects were 26 patients with anorexia nervosa. Treatment as usual was administered, and the intervention was delivered twice a week for the first three weeks, followed by weekly treatment for three weeks, according to the abstract. The acupuncture group received acupuncture at certain points. The control group received acupressure and massage. Acupressure involved consciously and gradually directing pressure to the ...

In adolescents, anorexia nervosa severely affects physical, emotional, and social development. Despite the seriousness and prevalence of adolescent anorexia nervosa, few studies have focused on the effectiveness of various types of psychotherapy treatment. Family-based therapy may be an effective approach to treating adolescent anorexia nervosa. This study will compare the effectiveness of family-based therapy versus ego-oriented individual psychotherapy for the treatment of adolescent anorexia nervosa. Simultaneously, it will examine potential predictors, mediators, and moderators of weight gain, psychological concerns about weight and shape, and changes in family functioning.. Participants in this open-label study will be randomly assigned to receive one of two types of therapy: family-based therapy or ego-oriented individual psychotherapy. Both types of therapy will be ...

Eating disorder characterized by immoderate food restriction and irrational fear of gaining weight, as well as a distorted body self-perception. Anorexia nervosa is an It typically involves excessive weight loss and is usually found more in females than in males. Due to the fear of gaining weight, people with this disorder restrict the amount of food they consume. This restriction of food intake causes metabolic and hormonal disorders. Outside of medical literature, the terms anorexia nervosa and anorexia are often used interchangeably. However, anorexia is simply a medical term for lack of appetite, and people with anorexia nervosa do not in fact, lose their appetites. Anorexia nervosa has many complicated implications and may be thought of as a lifelong illness that may never be truly cured, but only ...

*  Outcome and prognostic factors for adolescent female in-patients with anorexia nervosa : 9- to 14-year follow-up
Background: Earlier studies have indicated poor long-term outcomes for patients with anorexia nervosa. Aims: To study health and social outcomes of adolescent in-patients with anorexia nervosa in relation to prognostic factors. Method: A register study based on socio-economic and health data was conducted for a national cohort of female residents in Sweden born between 1968 and 1977, including 748 in-patients with anorexia nervosa. Results: At follow-up 9-14 years after hospital admission, 8.7% of patients with anorexia nervosa had persistent psychiatric health problems demanding hospital care and 21.4% were dependent on society for their main income; the stratified relative risks were 5.8 (95% CI 4.7-7.6) and 2.6 (2.3-3.0) respectively, compared with the general female population. The mortality rate for patients with anorexia nervosa was ...

*  Session: Social Brain Function in Anorexia Nervosa: Illness, Recovery, and Identity (iaedp Symposium 2017)
Anorexia nervosa is a severe mental illness that includes problems with self and other perception. Whole-brain neural activations in healthy women, women with anorexia nervosa, and women in long-term weight recovery following anorexia nervosa were compared using three functional magnetic resonance imaging tasks probing different aspects of social perception. The Faces task compared viewing oneself to a stranger. The Social Identity-V2 task involved consideration about oneself and others using socially descriptive adjectives. The Trust Game involved playing an interactive social game. Using these three games, we found that both recovered and ill women with anorexia nervosa showed differences in self-relevance and kindness perception. Only the women currently with disease showed differences related to perceiving negative social behavior and viewing themselves. Most ...

ISSN 1415-4714. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-47142010000200005.. This study of anorexia nervosa from a historical point of view is intended as a contribution to the research on a condition that involves the cultural influence on the origin and maintenance of a clinical reality. The article also questions opinions that consider anorexia nervosa a "modern evil" or the result of a single factor. An analysis of the lives of certain medieval Christian saints, for example, reveals how strongly their persistent behavior, based on asceticism, identifies them with modern anorexic girls, even though, in contrast, their concerns are esthetic.

*  Working with adults with anorexia nervosa in an out-patient setting | BJPsych Advances
There are very few randomised controlled treatment studies of anorexia nervosa and most are very small and unrepresentative. Indeed, this type of evidence may not be the most appropriate measure of efficacy in the treatment of anorexia nervosa, and longitudinal observational study designs may provide equally valuable information (Treasure & Kordy, 1998). The evidence base suggests that 20-24 sessions of out-patient therapy results in recovery in up to one-third of patients. Furthermore, the cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) model has demonstrable advantages over a purely behavioural approach, while CAT may be associated with greater subjective improvement than CBT, although the two are indistinguishable on objective outcome measures (Channon et al, 1989; Treasure et al, 1995; Treasure & Ward, 1997b).. The role of psychoanalytic psychotherapy is limited in anorexia nervosa (Bruch, 1985). Interpretations may ...

When methylation is altered, gene expression is also altered, and when gene expression is altered, the expression of traits that are controlled by those genes is also changed. In other words, altered methylation can produce changes in emotional reactions, physiological functions and behaviors.

There is paucity of information regarding the adverse effects of this tenacious illness on the lungs of adolescents at the hypocaloric stage of their illness. Based on previous clinical observations we postulate that lung function tests would be adversely effected by the hypocaloric nutrition of adolescents with anorexia nervosa and that they may improve during short refeeding in an inpatient setting of a general pediatric ward. To examine our hypothesis we would check lung function by various parameters of adolescents suffering from AN and a control group of adolescents ...
