Intimate Partner Relationship Stress and Suicidality in a Psychiatrically Hospitalized Military Sample

Suicide among United States service members is a significant public health concern. Intimate partner relationship stress may contribute to suicide risk, as a failed or failing relationship is the most commonly documented stressor preceding military suicide attempts and deaths. However, little is known about the manner by which relationship stressors are associated with the experience of military suicidality.

The majority of perinatal loss research has focused on miscarriage and stillbirth, necessitating investigation into the impact of lethal congenital anomalies.

Depression is a common pediatric problem affecting approximately 25% of U.S. adolescents and up to 35% of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Suicide is associated with mood disorders and is a leading cause of death for youth ages 10-25. Despite known risks of depression, up to 75% of depressed youth go unrecognized. Recently published guidelines recommend annual screening for youth 12 and older diagnosed with IBD (Mackner et  al., 2019). We sought to implement these guidelines in a large outpatient pediatric gastroenterology practice.

AbstractNeutrophils play a major role in tumor biology. Among other functions, neutrophils can release extracellular traps (NETs), mesh-like structures of decondensed chromatin fibers, in a process termed NETosis. Originally characterized as an antimicrobial mechanism, NETosis has been described in cancer, but cancer-related predisposition is not clear. In the current study, we investigated  the predisposition of circulating neutrophils to release NETs in lung cancer and the impact of G-CSF on this function, comparing circulating neutrophils isolated from cancer patients to the LLC and AB12 mouse models. We find that ...
