Quantitative and Qualitative Comparison of EEG-Based Neural Network Organization in Two Schizophrenia Groups Differing in the Duration of Illness and Disease Burden: Graph Analysis With Application of the Minimum Spanning Tree

https://doi.org/10.1177/1550059418807372

Clinical EEG and Neuroscience

The aim of this study was to compare neural network topology of 30 patients with first-episode schizophrenia (FES) and 30 multiepisode schizophrenia (mean number of psychotic relapses =4 years, duration of illness >5 years) patients, who were assessed with graph theory methods. This comparison was designed to identify network differences, which might be assigned to the burden of a mental disease. To estimate functional connectivity, we applied the phase lag index algorithm and the minimum spanning tree (MST) for the characterization of network topology. Group comparison revealed significant between-group differences of maximal betweenness centrality and tree hierarchy in the beta-band and hierarchy in the gamma-band. MST results showed that in the beta-band the network of patients with longer duration of illness (LDI) was characterized by more centralized network, while subjects with short duration of illness (FES) showed more decentralized topology. Furthermore, in the gamma-band, our results suggest that illness duration can disturb the balance between overload prevention and large-scale integration in the brain network. A qualitative analysis proved that the topological displacement of hubs also differentiated the FES and LDI groups. Our findings suggest that the duration of illness significantly affects the topology of resting-state functional network, supporting the “disconnectivity hypothesis’ in schizophrenia.

The Food-Specific Serum IgG Reactivity in Major Depressive Disorder Patients, Irritable Bowel Syndrome Patients and Healthy Controls

Nutrients 10(5), DOI: 10.3390/nu10050548

Nutrients

There is an increasing amount of evidence which links the pathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with food IgG hyperreactivity. Some authors have suggested that food IgG hyperreactivity could be also involved in the pathophysiology of major depressive disorder (MDD). The aim of this study was to compare levels of serum IgG against 39 selected food antigens between three groups of participants: patients with MDD (MDD group), patients with IBS (IBS group) and healthy controls (HC group). The study included 65 participants (22 in the MDD group, 22 in the IBS group and 21 in the HC group). Serum IgG levels were examined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Medical records, clinical data and laboratory results were collected for the analysis. IgG food hyperreactivity (interpreted as an average of levels of IgG antibodies above 7.5 µg/mL) was detected in 28 (43%) participants, including 14 (64%) from the MDD group, ten (46%) from the IBS group and four (19%) from the HC group. We found differences between extreme IgG levels in MDD versus HC groups and in IBS versus HC groups. Patients with MDD had significantly higher serum levels of total IgG antibodies and IgG against celery, garlic and gluten compared with healthy controls. The MDD group also had higher serum IgG levels against gluten compared with the IBS group. Our results suggest dissimilarity in immune responses against food proteins between the examined groups, with the highest immunoreactivity in the MDD group. Further studies are needed to repeat and confirm these results in bigger cohorts and also examine clinical utility of IgG-based elimination diet in patients with MDD and IBS.
