Mania Associated with the Use of Bortezomib and Dexamethasone.

[Mania Associated with the Use of Bortezomib and Dexamethasone]. Turk Psikiyatri Derg. 2018;29(3):209-215 Authors: Geniş B, Coşar B Abstract Bortezomib, an antineoplastic agent used in Multiple Myeloma, is a modified dipeptidyl boronic acid that is selectively and reversibly attached to the 26S proteasome. Bortezomib may be combined with corticosteroids in treatment-resistant multiple myeloma patients. Corticosteroids can cause many psychiatric disorders ncluding mania, depression, psychosis, delirium, suicide and aggression. To date only one case of mania associated with the use of bortezomib was reported in which the patient responded to the treatment with olanzapine and valproic acid. In this article, we present a 57-year-old female with multiple myeloma in whom mania developed after the use of bortezomib combined with dexamethasone.Psychiatric symptoms such as sleep deprivation, increased self-esteem and excessive speech appeared within the first week of bortezomib and dexamethasone treatment. Quetiapine was administered for the treatment of psychiatric symptoms. A gradual improvement was noted in manic symptoms after treatment. Bortezomib is a relatively new drug and there are only a few reports with respect to its psychiatric side effects. While using antineoplastic drugs such as bortezomib, caution should be exercised with regards to the psychiatric symptoms. PMID: 30260467 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we used an ex-vivo model to investigate the recovery pattern of both the train-of-four (TOF) ratio and first twitch tension of TOF (T1), and determined their relationship during recovery from rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade at various concentrations of sugammadex. Methods: Tissue specimens of the phrenic nerve-diaphragm were obtained in 60 adult Sprague-Dawley rats. Each specimen was immersed in an organ bath filled with Krebs buffer solution and stimulated with the TOF pattern using indirect supramaximal stimulation at 20-second intervals. After a 30-minute stabilization period, rocuronium loa...

CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence and comorbidity of major MH conditions is high in veterans referred for geriatric MH services. Future work will examine challenges faced by non-specialty providers in caring for older veterans, with the goal of developing targeted educational and clinical interventions to better address aging veterans' MH needs.

Authors: Macomb CV, Evans MO, Dockstater JE, Montgomery JR, Beakes DE Abstract Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA) is defined as "shoulder pain with limited range of motion within 48 hours after vaccine receipt in individuals with no prior history of pain, inflammation, or dysfunction of the affected shoulder before vaccine administration." Corticosteroid injections (CSIs) have been proposed as a reasonable treatment modality for SIRVA, although evidence regarding efficacy is scanty. In this case series, we present two patients diagnosed with SIRVA who received CSI within 5 days of s...

We aim to evaluate the influence of T1DM on male sexual function, quality of sexual life, and sex hormone levels. A total of 57 male patients aged 18 to 50 years (mean = 33) with T1DM (duration mean = 15 years) had a medical examination and completed a set of questionnaires - International Index of Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Sexual quality of life questionnaire male (SQoL-M). The prev...

Authors: Manabe H, Tezuka F, Yamashita K, Sugiura K, Ishihama Y, Takata Y, Sakai T, Maeda T, Sairyo K Abstract For full-endoscopic lumbar discectomy, operating costs are also important because expensive equipment are necessary. We surveyed the operating costs of surgical equipment necessary for full-endoscopic surgery together with surgical procedure reimbursement fees. A total of 295 cases of full-endoscopic surgery via a transforaminal approach were retrospectively analyzed. We calculated the frequency of damage and the unit purchase price of devices such as endoscopes, and surgical instruments such as grasping f...

Abstract Although doctoral students in the biomedical sciences have been recognized as a population at particular risk for mental health problems such as burnout and depression, little research has been conducted to identify candidate targets for intervention. To this end, we used the stress process model to evaluate potential mediators of stress-burnout and stress-depression relationships in biomedical doctoral students. A cross-sectional sample (n = 69) completed validated self-report measures of stress; symptoms of burnout and depression; and perceptions of mastery, social support, and advisor support. In linea...

Lovelock, Terrence DeakAbstractAdolescence is a developmental epoch marked by maturation of stress-responsive systems including the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis. Emerging evidence has found sex-specificity in the long term behavioral and neural effects of stressors experienced during this sensitive period, though most studies have utilized chronic stress exposures that span much of the adolescent period. Using Sprague-Dawley rats, we examined how a single exposure to inescapable footshock (80 shocks, 5s, 1.0 ...
