Authors: Fountoulakis KN, Gonda X, Siamouli M, Panagiotidis P, Moutou K, Nimatoudis I, Kasper S Abstract OBJECTIVE: Advanced parental age might constitute a risk factor for various disorders. We tested whether this concerns also mood disorder patients. METHODS: The study included 314 subjects (42 bipolar-BD patients; 21 manics and 21 depressives, 68 unipolar-UD, and 204 normal controls-NC). Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and the calculation of the Relative Risk (RR) and the Odds Ratio (OR) were used for the analysis. RESULTS: Paternal age differed between NC and UD patients (29.42 ± 6....

Authors: Eisele L, Köchli L, Städele P, Welter J, Fehr-Kuhn M, Fehr MK Abstract Introduction The study's objectives were to determine the success rate following radiofrequency endometrial ablation to treat abnormal menstrual bleeding and to assess risk factors for failure of the method. Materials and Methods 195 women who were treated with bipolar radiofrequency endometrial ablation between 01/2009 and 06/2016 were included in this prospective cohort study. Postoperative data from 187 women were collected at a median of 17.5 months (IQR 4.5-34.9; 1-82). Multivariate analyses of risk factors were performed...

It seems like you’ve been ill forever. For weeks, maybe months, it has felt like a major effort to do life. On a good day, you might muddle through. On not so good days, it’s hard to get out of bed, much less shower or get to work. Major mental illness has knocked you down and out. Worse, it seems like you aren’t getting any better. Hold onto the fact that long term studies have shown that most people diagnosed with even the most severe forms of mental illness at least get relief from symptoms. The NIMH Collaborative Depression Study of people diagnosed with major depression found that the recovery rate...

This research investigated the stability of two guanidinium-based cations as anion exchange functional groups under conditions relevant to bipolar membrane electrodialysis. Density functional theory simulations were performed to investigate reaction energies and activation barriers for reactions of hydroxide ions with pentamethylguanidinium (PMG...

 Most people understand how doctors and therapists work, but many people can’t quite wrap their minds around support groups – especially peer-led ones. In this episode, our hosts dissect different types of support groups to make them better understood and more accessible.

Retinal degeneration causes blindness by destroying the photoreceptor cells in the retina. Some forms of degenerative blindness leave intact other cell populations, however. What if those populations could be granted some of the same mechanisms used by photoreceptor cells to pass signals to the optic nerve? Researchers here demonstrate a gene therapy that does just this, a most interesting feat of engineering. It is still a poor alternative to prevention of the condition, or restoration of lost photoreceptor cells, but it is no less impressive for it. This is truly an age of biotechnology. Scientists inserted a ge...

uying Hao A class of bipolar electrostatically actuated micro-resonators is presented in this paper. Two parametric equations are proposed for changing the microbeam shape of the upper and lower sections. The mechanical properties of a micro-resonator can be enhanced by optimizing the two section parameters. The electrostatic force nonlinearity, neutral surface tension, and neutral surface bending are considered in the model. First, the theoretical results are verified with finite element results from COMSOL Multiphysics simulations. The influence of section variation on the electrostatic force, pull-in behaviors and s...

As transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) emerges as an investigational noninvasive approach for the treatment of major depressive disorder, there is increasing interest in its safety profile [1]. Several studies and case reports suggest that tDCS may be associated with increased risk of treatment-emergent mania or hypomania (TEM) when used to treat depression [2-4]. In 2017, Brunoni et al. [3] conducted a meta-analysis of TEM in ten randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating antidepressant effects of active tDCS (n=226) and sham tDCS (n=190) in unipolar and bipolar depression and failed to demonstrate group differences [3].
