Ivanka Trump reveals struggles with postpartum depression on ‘ Dr. Oz ’
Ivanka Trump revealed in a television interview that she struggled with postpartum depression after the births of her three children. During an interview with Mehmet Oz, better known as Dr. Oz, President Trump's eldest daughter, who also serves as his senior adviser, described the period after the birth of each of her three children as a "very challenging […]Related:Could ADHD be a type of sleep disorder?

Authors: Braukhaus C, Jahnke U, Zimmermann T Abstract A Parkinson's disease is attended by high strain for the patients and an obvious loss of relationship functioning. Partners of patients (N=110) were evaluated via self-assessment in terms of own depression (PHQ-9), own fear of progression (PA-F-P-KF), relationship quality (PFB) as well as perceived deficits in everyday life and nonverbal communication. 26% of women and 11% of men showed depression scores, 51% of women and 41% of men dysfunctional fear of progression and about 60% were unsatisfied with their relationship. Gender-specific differences regarding the...

For a depressed patient, a single day without symptom improvement means yet another day of suffering. The currently available antidepressants require weeks or months to achieve appreciable symptom remission and remain ineffective in a large number of patients. Severely depressed patients are at high risk of suicide, making delayed symptom improvement a life-threatening unresolved problem in psychiatry. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop new strategies to treat depression more rapidly and more effectively to achieve fast and sustained symptom relief.
A number of placebo-controlled trials have provided evidence of rapid and sustained antidepressant actions after the administration of a single, subanesthetic dose of the noncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) antagonist ketamine in treatment-refractory depressed patients. Ketamine is a racemic mixture comprised of the (S)- and (R)-ketamine enantiomers, with (S)-ketamine being approximately fourfold more potent at inhibiting the NMDAR. Similar to racemic ketamine, clinical studies in depressed patients have indicated that a 40-minute intravenous infusion of (S)-ketamine exerts rapid antidepressant actions (1).
A range of evidence points to increased inflammation in stress-related and mood disorders (1,2). Relevant data have emerged from both animal models and clinical research (3) and include work on alterations in inflammatory markers and responses of such biomarkers to treatments with anti-inflammatory agents and other psychiatric interventions (4,5). Indeed, exciting advances in psychoneuroimmunology have raised hopes of improving the diagnosis and treatment of stress-related and mood disorders.
In this issue of Biological Psychiatry, Scifo et al. (1) follow a reasonable clinical and epidemiologic classification to separate biological traits and states. They base their hypothesis on existing strong findings that patients often have lifelong recurring episodes of major depression of increasing severity, shorter remission periods, and red uced therapeutic response. Based on these observations, they reason that patients with differing clinical courses (single episodes, single episodes in remission, recurrent episodes, recurrent episodes in remission, and control subjects) should show differing biological traits and states.
