Abstract Major depressive disorder is a prevalent and serious form of mental illness. While traditional antidepressants ameliorate some of the symptoms associated with depression, the onset of action typically takes several weeks leaving severely depressed individuals vulnerable to self-injurious behavior and possibly suicide. There has been a major unmet need for the development of pharmacological therapies that can quickly alleviate symptoms associated with depression. Clinical data shows that a single sub-psychomimetic dose of ketamine, a noncompetitive glutamatergic N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagon...

Abstract Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a debilitating illness with significant morbidity and mortality, leading to attempted and completed suicides. It affects interpersonal relationships and also contributes to decreased productivity, causing financial burden to individuals and society. Patients often fail to respond to various antidepressant medication trials resulting in treatment-resistant depression (TRD). Current antidepressant medications work by modulating the monoaminergic systems and takes several weeks to establish a clinical response. Ketamine has been used extensively as an anesthetic agent since...

Has anyone else noticed that clinicians seem to be assuming that chronic suicidality equals a definitive diagnosis of BPD more and more, without doing a good differential? I mean, with chronic suicidality, BPD should definitely be on the differential list, but it's not the only disorder that can lead to this (MDD, Persistent Depressive Disorder, PTSD, etc), nor is it sufficient to diagnosis BPD in and of itself. It remains me of the old (and still somewhat prevalent) idea that non-suicidal... Borderline Personality Disorder as a "dumping ground" diagnosis for chronic suicidality?
