The bidirectional impact of perceived and enacted support on mood in bipolar outpatients: A two-year prospective study
Bipolar disorder (BD) is a chronic illness, and a great need has been expressed to elucidate factors affecting the course of the disease. Social support is one of the psychosocial factors that is assumed to play an important role in the course of BD, but it is largely unknown whether the depressive and/or manic symptoms also affect the patients’ support system. Further, the perception of one’s social support appears to have stronger effects on disease outcomes than one’s enacted or received support, but whether this also applies to BD has not been investigated.

Clinically related or predictive factors and impacts on long-term treatment outcomes of involvement behaviors in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder
Patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) frequently exhibit involvement behaviors (IBs) in which they accommodate their caregivers to their OCD symptoms by 1) asking them for reassurance, 2) forcing them to participate in their rituals, or 3) forcing them to assist in avoidance according to the patients’ rules or demands. Such behaviors correspond to those of their caregivers, and are referred to as family accommodation (FA). (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

The analysis of BDNF gene polymorphism haplotypes and impulsivity in methamphetamine abusers
An increasing number of evidence showed that genetic factors might contribute to drug abuse vulnerability. Data from genetic scans in humans suggest that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophic factor family, may be associated with substance abuse or dependence. To test the hypothesis that the BDNF gene polymorphism is involved in methamphetamine abuse, we compared three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, rs16917204, rs16917234, and rs2030324)of the BDNF gene in 200 methamphetamine abusers and 219 healthy individuals.

Impulsivity in Bipolar and Substance Use Disorders
Bipolar disorder (BD) is commonly associated with increased impulsivity, particularly during manic and depressed episodes also impulsivity remains elevated during euthymic phases. Impulsivity is also a factor in the initiation and maintenance of substance use disorders (SUD). Impulsivity can predispose to substance abuse or can result from it. Impulsivity appears to be relatively independent of mood state and is higher in individuals with past substance use. So we wanted to compare in terms of impulsivity of BD and SUD closely associated with impulsivity and determine if any differences. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

The Postdisaster Prevalence of Major Depression Relative to PTSD in Survivors of the 9/11 Attacks on the World Trade Center Selected from Affected Workplaces
Studies of survivors of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City suggest that postdisaster depressive disorders may be at least as prevalent, or even more prevalent, than posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), unlike findings from most other disaster studies.
