Focus on ECT seizure quality: serum BDNF as a peripheral biomarker in depressed patients.
Authors: Bumb JM, Aksay SS, Janke C, Kranaster L, Geisel O, Gass P, Hellweg R, Sartorius A Abstract Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a well-established, safe and effective treatment in severest or drug-resistant affective disorders. The potential relation between any peripheral biological marker and the seizure quality as a surrogate for treatment efficacy has not been investigated so far. We prospectively examined serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels in 20 patients with major depression before and after electroconvulsive therapy. A seizure quality sum score for every ECT session was build up on ...

Prediction of methylphenidate treatment outcome in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Authors: Retz W, Retz-Junginger P Abstract Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a highly prevalent mental disorder of childhood, which often persists in adulthood. Methylphenidate (MPH) is one of the most effective medications to treat ADHD, but also few adult patients show no sufficient response to this drug. In this paper, we give an overview regarding genetic, neuroimaging, clinical and other studies which have tried to reveal the reasons for non-response in adults with ADHD, based on a systematic literature search. Although MPH is a well-established treatment for adults with ADHD, research regardi...

Exploratory meta-analysis on deep brain stimulation in treatment-resistant depression.

Expressing these findings as patients-needed-to-treat, deep brain electrical stimulation is required by 2.9 patients with long-term treatment-resistant depression in order for one of them to benefit.

[Mania with Psychotic Feature Induced by the use of Pramipexole in Parkinson's Disease: A Case Report].
Abstract Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by movement abnormalities, is frequently complicated by psychiatric syndromes. Psychiatric symptoms may be the direct result of PD, its co-morbid pathologies, or occur as a side effect of its pharmacotherapy. Pramipexole, like other dopamine agonists for treating Parkinson's disease , has a tendency to induce psychotic and manic symptoms due to central dopaminergic stimulation. In this article, mania with psychotic feature induced by the use of dopamine agonists which is not observed frequently in the literature will be discussed. PMID: 2...

[Augmentation strategies in patients with schizophrenia who show partial response to clozapine treatment].
Abstract A significant proportion of patients with schizophrenia receiving clozapine remain with partial response. In this group of patients findings regarding addition of various psychotropics to ongoing clozapine treatment for augmentation are controversial. In this review, literature regarding the efficacy and safety of adjunctive agents in clozapine resistant schizophrenic patients is examined. Augmentation agents added to clozapine in treatment resistant schizophrenic patients consist of antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, other agents (eg. omega 3 fatty acids and glutamatergic agents) and elect...

[A Comparison of T-Scores from MMPI and MMPI-2 in Turkish Adults Turkish Population].

Therefore the results support the idea knowledge of old profiles can be used in new ones. However during the transition from MMPI to MMPI-2, it may be helpful to alert about differences in some subscales for women.
