Abstract Histories of the diathesis-stress model trace its origins to the 1950s. However, of 26 psychiatric texts published between 1800 and 1910, 17 noted that causes of insanity could be usefully divided into those that predispose to illness and those that excite onset. In this "predisposition-excitation framework" (PEF) for the etiology of insanity, hereditary or constitutional factors were critical predisposing causes, but education, occupation, sex, and marital status were typically included as well. Psychological traumas were key exciting causes, but so were somatic diseases, pregnancy, and substan...

The medical diagnostics industry has been moving steadily from centralized testing toward a decentralized model that brings testing ever closer to the patient. The benefits of point-of-care (POC) interventions are significant, and new technologies have expanded the options of home testing, while new generations of testing kits offer enhanced accuracy, reliability, and speed. Detection and monitoring are especially critical for diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis C (HVC), and colon cancer, and POC technologies can encourage early detection and better testing compliance as they are more accessible for patients. They are also les...

There are few longitudinal follow-up studies of patients in opioid maintenance treatment (OMT). For this reason we performed a follow-up study of a cohort of 67 women who had used medications in OMT during pregnancy an average of ten years earlier. The aim of our study was to explore how the women were doing over time regarding OMT medication adherence and use of other legal and illegal substances, as well as to evaluate the mortality for the women and custody situation for the children in the cohort.

RECENT FINDINGS The incidence of ischemic stroke in young adults has been increasing since the 1980s, which has occurred in parallel with increasing prevalence of vascular risk factors and substance abuse among the younger population. Young adults have a considerably wider range of risk factors than older patients, including age-specific factors such as pregnancy/puerperium and oral contraceptive use. Behavioral risk fac...

Abstract This systematic review seeks to evaluate the efficacy of interventions aimed at preventing unintended pregnancies in women using psychoactive substances. Seven electronic databases (Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, Web of Science Core Collection, PsycINFO, Cochrane CENTRAL database) were searched in October 2017. Twenty-two articles met our inclusion criteria. Interventions based on behavior change theory yielded an increase in the initiation of effective contraception as compared with provision of written information materials. The effect was more pronounced when the intervention provided on-site contraceptive c...
