Peter Moore Our laboratory has serially reported on the virologic and immunopathologic features of a cohort of experimental feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)-infected cats for more than eight years. At 8.09 years post infection (PI), one of these animals entered the terminal stage of infection, characterized by undulating hyperthermia, progressive anorexia, weight loss, and pancytopenia; the animal was not responsive to therapeutic interventions, necessitating euthanasia six weeks later (8.20 years PI). Subsequent analyses indicated that neoplastic lymphocytes infiltrated multiple cervical lymph nodes and a band-li...

Eating disorders (EDs) are complex medical and psychiatric illnesses that can have serious consequences for health, relationships and general functioning. A recent review (Waller,  2016) suggests that cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) have consolidated their position for both bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorders in adults. Some evidence suggests that the reach of CBT has been expanded to anorexia nervosa and adolescents with EDs (Pretorius et al., 2009; Dalle Grave , Calugi, Conti, Doll,&Fairburn, 2013; Fairburn et  al., 2009; 2013).

Cortical folding is thought to remain relatively invariant after birth. Therefore, differences seen in psychiatric disorders have been proposed as early biomarkers or used as intermediate phenotypes in imaging genetics studies. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is associated with drastic and rapid structural brain alterations and may thus be an ideal model disorder to study environmental influences on cortical folding.

Publication date: Available online 22 April 2018 Source:Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience Author(s): Yi-Wen Chen, Hannah Actor-Engel, Chiye Aoki Activity-based anorexia (ABA) is an animal model of anorexia nervosa, a mental illness with highest mortality and with onset that is most frequently during adolescence. We questioned whether vulnerability of adolescent mice to ABA differs between sexes and whether individual differences in resilience are causally linked to alpha4betadelta-GABAAR expression. C57BL6/J WT and α4-KO adolescent male and female mice underwent ABA induction by combining wheel access with food re...

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Journal of Psychiatric Research, Volume 103 Author(s): Nadine P.G. Paans, Mariska Bot, Ingeborg A. Brouwer, Marjolein Visser, Brenda W.J.H. Penninx Depression and body mass index (BMI) are known to be associated with body image, however, their independent or joint effects on body image in adults are largely unknown. Therefore, we studied associations of depression diagnosis, severity, and BMI with perceptual body size (PBS) and body image dissatisfaction (BID). Cross-sectional data from 882 remitted depressed patients, 242 currently depressed patients and 325 healthy controls from the ...

Conclusions Reductions in subcortical volume, cortical thickness, and right postcentral LGI were unique to women with acute AN, indicating state-dependence and pointing towards cellular remodeling and sulcal widening as consequences of disease manifestation. Reductions in bilateral frontal LGI were observed in women with acute and remitted AN, suggesting a role of atypical neurodevelopment in disease vulnerability.

Discussion: Although evidence of efficacy was verified in the treatments analyzed, the limited number of studies, the various methodological limitations and the methodological heterogeneity between studies make the findings inconclusive.
