AbstractOxidative stress toxicity (OSTOX), as well as lowered antioxidant defenses (ANTIOX), plays a role in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Nevertheless, the associations between OSTOX/ANTIOX and psychiatric comorbidities in TLE are largely unknown. Thus, this study examines plasma malondialdehyde (MDA), lipid hydroperoxides (LOOH), advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), nitric oxide metabolites (NOx), total radical-trapping antioxidant parameter (TRAP), and sulfhydryl (-SH) groups in depression due to TLE (n = 25); anxiety disorders due to TLE (n = 27); psychotic disorder due to TLE (n&thinsp...

Knowing the benefits of and barriers for transition programs opens the opportunity to move further this strategy in the region considering local specificities. Education, communication skills, team working, and advocacy for adolescents with epilepsy could be initial starting points. PMID: 32516745 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Suicide accounts for 1.4% of all deaths worldwide, and was reported to be the 18th leading cause of death in 2016 [1]. In Korea, the estimated total suicide mortality was 24.3 per 100,000 in 2017, which was 2.3 times higher than the global rate [2] and the second highest rate among member states of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development [3]. For many years, there were few discussions of suicide as it relates to epilepsy, partly because of concerns about further increasing the stigma associated with epilepsy.

Considering the high prevalence of depression among people with epilepsy (PWE), routine and periodic screening of all PWE for early detection and appropriate management of depression is recommended. PWE should be screened for suicidal ideation regularly and whe...
