Authors: Dietrich DE, Bode L, Spannhuth CW, Hecker H, Ludwig H, Emrich HM Abstract BACKGROUND: Whether Borna disease virus (BDV-1) is a human pathogen remained controversial until recent encephalitis cases showed BDV-1 infection could even be deadly. This called to mind previous evidence for an infectious contribution of BDV-1 to mental disorders. Pilot open trials suggested that BDV-1 infected depressed patients benefitted from antiviral therapy with a licensed drug (amantadine) which also tested sensitive in vitro. Here, we designed a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial (RCT) which cross-lin...

This correction reports and rectifies errors in several articles published in JAACAP between 2009 and 2011. Incorrect coding of the Suicidal Ideation Questionnaire-Jr resulted in the wrong reporting of the means for this measure and of the rate of participants with clinically significant suicidal ideation. The authors would like to apologize to the editorial staff and the readers for these mistakes.

Authors: Maruta M, Miyoshi T, Matsuo N, Yamashina T, Irie K, Tsuruta M, Tsukada H, Tsuruyama M, Nagano M, Hiraki Y Abstract We administered FOLFOX (oxaliplatin (L-OHP) plus infusional 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin) to an hemodialysis (HD) patient with advanced gastric cancer (AGC), and investigated pharmacokinetics (PKs) and dialyzability of L-OHP. The patient was a 54-year-old Japanese man with a diagnosis of inoperable AGC. FOLFOX was instituted 3 h prior to the start of a 4 h HD period with the L-OHP and 5-FU doses reduced by 50% for the first cycle, and 30% reduced dose was administered for...

This study was aimed to estimate the prevalence of chronic pain in different regions of China. Data on pain and its treatment were collected from 9357 participants using questionnaires and telephone-based interviews, from 31 regions of China. Gathered data were then coded into electronic data acquisition system and descriptive and inferential statistical analysis was performed. Out of 9298 participants, the ratio of chronic pain was 31.54% with the proportion of male having chronic pain (33.86%) was higher than that of female (29.53%). The average age of participants with pain (45.02 ± 15.07 years) was higher than f...

Abstract The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical profiles and treatment outcomes of patients with lung cancer admitted to the Medical Psychiatric Unit (MPU), which is built for patients with physical and severe psychiatric disorders. All medical records of patients with lung cancer admitted to the MPU of Tachikawa hospital were reviewed. The clinical outcomes of these patients were retrospectively evaluated between January 2010 and December 2016. A total of 24 patients in the MPU were histologically or cytologically diagnosed with primary lung cancer. Of these, 20 patients had schizophrenia, ...

In this study, we investigated the expression of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress genes in the lung tissue of obese ovalbumin (OVA)-sensitized male and female rats.Main methodsThe rats were divided into eight groups (n = 5 per group) as follows: female and male rats fed with normal diet (FND and MND, respectively), female and male OVA-sensitized rats fed with normal diet (F-OND and M-OND, respectively), female and male rats fed with high-fat diet (F-HFD and M-HFD, respectively), female and male OVA-sensitized rats fed with high-fat diet (F-OHFD and M-OHFD, respectively). All rats were fed with a high-fat diet or stand...

Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Guo-liang Liu, Yun-feng Cui, Chang Lu, Peng ZhaoAbstractKetamine is gaining ground as a potential treating depression because it has a distinct mode of action than typical drugs that influence monoamine neurotransmitters including noradrenaline, dopamine, or serotonin. Ketamine is thought to act by blocking N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the brain, which interact with the amino acid neurotransmitter glutamate. The resultant chemical changes in the brain caused by ketamine are not yet fully understood but could inv...
