Cannabidiol (CBD) use in psychiatric disorders: A systematic.

Cannabidiol (CBD) use in psychiatric disorders: A systematic. Neurotoxicology. 2019 Aug 11;: Authors: Bonaccorso S, Ricciardi A, Zangani C, Chiappini S, Schifano F Abstract Cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most represented phytocannabinoids in Cannabis sativa plants. However, CBD may present with a different activity compared with the psychotomimetic THC. Most typically, CBD is reported to be used in some medical conditions, including chronic pain. Conversely, the main aim of this systematic review is to assess and summarise the available body of evidence relating to both efficacy and safety of CBD as a treatment for psychiatric disorders, alone and/or in combination with other treatments. Eligible studies included randomized controlled trials (RCT) assessing the effect of CBD in a range of psychopathological conditions, such as substance use; psychosis, anxiety, mood disturbances, and other psychiatric (e.g., cognitive impairment; sleep; personality; eating; obsessive-compulsive; post-traumatic stress/PTSD; dissociative; and somatic) disorders. For data gathering purposes, the PRISMA guidelines were followed. The initial search strategy identified some n = 1301 papers; n = 190 studies were included after the abstract's screening and n = 27 articles met the inclusion criteria. There is currently limited evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of CBD for the treatment of psychia...

Just wanted to give a shout out to the members of the anesthesia and pain management team at Cook County. Completed a rotation with them last month (August) and it was by far the best rotation experience I've had to date. The hands on experience and one-on-one with the residents had me feeling like I was a part of the team and actually useful (a feeling most of us can probably agree we don't often have as a medical student). Hours were good, team was great, and the experience overall was... Cook County Anesthesia elective

ScarpaAbstractYouth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience depression and anxiety at higher rates than typically developing (TD) youth. The current study examined how restricted and repetitive behaviors or interests (RRBs) may be related to symptoms of depression and anxiety. Participants included 35 children with ASD (29 male, 6 female) between 3 and 14 years. Youth who met clinical cut-off for depression and anxiety demonstrated increased self-injurious be...

Basic neurobiology in preclinical animal models implicates enhanced sensory processing in the central nervous system, acting through N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors, as an important mechanism underpinning persistent pain. The non-receptor tyrosine...

ConclusionCRS is associated with an increased incidence of asthma, AMI, stroke, anxiety disorder, and depression. Therefore, we suggest that clinicians should monitor CRS patients carefully, and optimize management as a means to potentially decrease these other associated comorbid conditions.
