Macrophage migration inhibitory factor as a potential novel biomarker for cognitive function in patients with first-episode schizophrenia
This study investigated the pre- and post-risperidone treatment correlations between serum macrophage migration inhibitory factor levels and cognitive function in first-episode schizophrenia patients.METHODS: A total of 83 first-episode schizophrenia patients who received risperidone monotherapy and 57 healthy controls - matched for sex, age, smoking status, education (years), marital status and waist-to-hip ratio - were included. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor levels were measured before and 10 weeks after treatment in the patient group and at baseline in the controls. Pre- and post-treatment cognitive functions i...

Is the response to rTMS largely the result of non-specific effects?
Aust N Z J Psychiatry. 2021 May;55(5):445-450. doi: 10.1177/00048674211016043.ABSTRACTThe efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in the treatment of depression is disputed. This is partly because, to date, insufficient good-quality studies have been conducted, and a definitive clinical profile for which rTMS is best suited is yet to be determined. However, another equally important reason for questioning the efficacy of rTMS is that the clinical response to its application is thought to be the result of predominantly non-specific and placebo effects. Therefore, in this viewpoint we examine this pos...

Post-diagnosis young-onset dementia care in the National Disability Insurance Scheme
CONCLUSIONS: While people with young-onset dementia and their care partners strongly agree with their inclusion in the National Disability Insurance Scheme, a relatively low level of experience with dementia in the disability workforce and a lack of integration with the healthcare and aged care systems continue to create important barriers for accessing the services they need.PMID:33982630 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211011699 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

Comparison of accredited person and medical officer discharge decisions under the Mental Health Act of NSW: A cohort study of deliberate self-poisoning patients
CONCLUSIONS: The Accredited Person assessed more clinically complex patients than the Medical Officers. After adjusting for clinical complexity and propensity score, the likelihood of referral for involuntary psychiatric hospital care was similar for Accredited Person and Medical Officers. Our evaluation of the Accredited Person programme in the general hospital was favourable, and wider implementation and evaluation is warranted.PMID:33951922 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211009613 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

Monitoring of metabolic side-effects in children and adolescents prescribed antipsychotic medication: A systematic review
CONCLUSION: Despite widespread awareness and concern regarding metabolic side-effects, monitoring occurred inconsistently and infrequently, particularly for biochemical parameters requiring venesection. Monitoring of anthropometric measures (weight, body mass index and waist circumference) with escalation to more laboratory testing where metabolic concerns are identified may improve monitoring. Minimising iatrogenic harm, through reduced antipsychotic prescription where possible, is a clinical priority in this population.PMID:33951933 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211009620 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

A growing number of studies have focused on obsessive beliefs and impulsivity which could be involved in the occurrence and maintenance of OCD symptoms. The present study aimed to examine whether there are distinct brain structural changes in patients with different OCD subgroups.METHODS: Eighty-nine patients with OCD and 42 healthy controls w...

Comparison of accredited person and medical officer discharge decisions under the Mental Health Act of NSW: A cohort study of deliberate self-poisoning patients
CONCLUSIONS: The Accredited Person assessed more clinically complex patients than the Medical Officers. After adjusting for clinical complexity and propensity score, the likelihood of referral for involuntary psychiatric hospital care was similar for Accredited Person and Medical Officers. Our evaluation of the Accredited Person programme in the general hospital was favourable, and wider implementation and evaluation is warranted.PMID:33951922 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211009613 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

Monitoring of metabolic side-effects in children and adolescents prescribed antipsychotic medication: A systematic review
CONCLUSION: Despite widespread awareness and concern regarding metabolic side-effects, monitoring occurred inconsistently and infrequently, particularly for biochemical parameters requiring venesection. Monitoring of anthropometric measures (weight, body mass index and waist circumference) with escalation to more laboratory testing where metabolic concerns are identified may improve monitoring. Minimising iatrogenic harm, through reduced antipsychotic prescription where possible, is a clinical priority in this population.PMID:33951933 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211009620 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

Aust N Z J Psychiatry. 2021 May 5:48674211009623. doi: 10.1177/00048674211009623. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Although brain structural changes have been reported in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), results from previous studies have been inconsistent. A growing number of studies have focused on obsessive beliefs and impulsivity which could be involved in the occurrence and maintenance of OCD symptoms. The present study aimed to examine whether there are distinct brain structural changes in patients with different OCD subgroups.METHODS: Eighty-nine patients with OCD and 42 healthy controls w...
