Treatment of Premenstrual Breakthrough of Depression With Adjunctive Oral Contraceptive Pills Compared With Placebo

Conclusions: Findings from this small randomized trial suggest that OCP augmentation of antidepressants may not be effective for treating premenstrual breakthrough of depression. Future studies should target women established to have hormonal sensitivity prior to antidepressant therapy and those with fewer lifetime depressive episodes.

Behavioral health (BH) complaints, including suicidal ideation (SI) and alcohol, are common in US Emergency Departments (EDs), [1-3]. The CDC published data in 2018 demonstrating a 25% overall increase in ED visits for SI and/or self-directed violence [4]. Additionally, the CDC reported that 24.5% of the population  > 12 years old engaged in binge alcohol use in 2017 [5]. A public health crisis occurred with the onset of novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). Current “stay at home” orders have reduced human contact through social distancing [6].

ConclusionsThe grades of BPD-specific symptom severity derived from the distribution of the BSL-23 scores received consistent empirical validation from established assessments for psychopathology. Future studies should expand this validation by including additional instruments e.g., to assess self-esteem, loneliness, connectedness, and quality of life.

CONCLUSIONS: This unprecedented crisis may interact with certain dimensions of the suicidal process. However, it is time to innovate. Several suicide prevention tools all have their place in new modes of care and should be tested on a large scale. PMID: 32471707 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

miR‑205 suppresses cell migration, invasion and EMT of colon cancer by targeting mouse double minute 4. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 18;: Authors: Fan Y, Wang K Abstract Colon cancer is one of the most frequent malignant tumors, and microRNA (miR)‑205 is involved in the tumor progression. The present study aimed to explore the effects of miR‑205 on human colon cancer and its targeting mechanism. The levels of miR‑205 and mouse double minute 4 (MDM4) were determined via reverse transcription‑quantitative (RT‑q)PCR and western blot analysis. A luciferase activity assay was performed t...
