Effect of stress gene-by-environment interactions on hippocampal volumes and cortisol secretion in adolescent girls.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Feb 13:4867419827649. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

1 Academic Department of Psychiatry, Northern Sydney Local Health District, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Objective:: Adolescence is a time of increased susceptibility to environmental stress and mood disorders, and girls are particularly at risk. Genes interacting with the environment (G × E) are implicated in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis dysregulation, hippocampal volume changes and risk or resilience to mood disorders. In this study, we assessed the effects of stress system G × E interactions on hippocampal volumes and cortisol secretion in adolescent girls. Read More

Disturbed thalamocortical connectivity in unaffected relatives of schizophrenia patients with a high genetic loading.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Feb 6:4867418824020. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

1 Institute of Human Behavioral Medicine, Medical Research Center, Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Objectives:: Alterations in thalamocortical anatomical connectivity, specifically the connection between the orbitofrontal cortex and thalamus, have been frequently reported in schizophrenia and are suggested to contribute to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. The connectivity of the thalamocortical white matter in unaffected relatives of schizophrenia patients was compared to that of healthy controls.

Methods:: The unaffected relative group was defined as asymptomatic family members who had at least one first-degree relative with schizophrenia and one or more other affected first- to third-degree relatives. Read More

The iHOPE-20 study: Relationships between and prospective predictors of remission, clinical recovery, personal recovery and resilience 20 years on from a first episode psychosis.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Feb 6:4867419827648. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

1 DETECT Early Intervention in Psychosis Service, Dublin, Ireland.

Objective:: Knowledge of outcome in psychotic illness is limited by the paucity of very long-term epidemiologically representative studies of incidence first episode psychosis (FEP) cohorts that measure and compare outcomes reflecting modern clinical practice, mental health policy and research agendas. Our study aimed to address this gap.

Method:: iHOPE-20 is a prospective 20-year follow-up study of a FEP incidence cohort ( N = 171) conducted between 2014 and 2017 in Ireland. Read More

The effects of childhood trauma on adolescent hippocampal subfields.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Feb 2:4867418824021. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

1 Department of Psychiatry, Northern Clinical School, Faculty of Medicine and Health, The University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Objective:: Mood disorders are more common among girls and typically emerge during adolescence. The precise reasons for this are unknown, but among the many mechanisms implicated are stress-induced hippocampal structural changes during this developmental stage. The hippocampus is a complex structure comprised of subfields that develop differentially and respond variably to stress and childhood adversity, both of which are risk factors for mood disorders.

Psychotic versus non-psychotic bipolar disorder: Socio-demographic and clinical profiles in an Italian nationwide study.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Jan 18:4867418823268. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

8 Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA.

Objective:: Psychotic versus non-psychotic patients with bipolar disorder have been traditionally associated with different unfavorable clinical features. In this study on bipolar Italian patients, we aimed to compare clinical and demographic differences between psychotic and non-psychotic individuals, exploring clinical factors that may favor early diagnosis and personalized treatment.

Methods:: A total of 1671 patients (males: n = 712 and females: n = 959; bipolar type 1: n = 1038 and bipolar type 2: n = 633) from different psychiatric departments were compared according to the lifetime presence of psychotic symptoms in terms of socio-demographic and clinical variables.

1 Deakin Health Economics, Centre for Population Health Research, Deakin University, Geelong, VIC, Australia.

Background:: Stepped care has been promoted for the management of mental disorders; however, there is no empirical evidence to support the cost-effectiveness of this approach for the treatment of anxiety disorders in youth.

Method:: This economic evaluation was conducted within a randomised controlled trial comparing stepped care to a validated, manualised treatment in 281 young people, aged 7-17, with a diagnosed anxiety disorder. Intervention costs were determined from therapist records. Read More

A national child mental health literacy initiative is needed to reduce childhood mental health disorders.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2019 Jan 17:4867418821440. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

1 School of Psychology, The University of Sydney, Camperdown, NSW, Australia.

Half of all lifetime mental health disorders emerge in childhood, so intervening in the childhood years is critical to prevent chronic trajectories of mental health disorders. The prevalence of child mental health disorders is not decreasing despite the increased availability of evidence-based interventions. One key reason for the high prevalence and low treatment uptake may be low levels of child mental health literacy in the general community. Read More

Structural and metabolic cerebral alterations between elderly bipolar disorder and behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia: A combined MRI-PET study.

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2018 Dec 13:4867418815976. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

1 Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Background:: Elderly bipolar disorder (BD) and behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) may exhibit similar symptoms and both disorders are characterized by selective abnormalities in cortical and subcortical regions that are associated with cognitive and emotional impairments. We aimed to investigate common and distinct neural substrates of BD and bvFTD by coupling, for the first time, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) techniques.

Methods:: 3-Tesla MRI and 18 fluorodeoxyglucose-PET scans were acquired for 16 elderly BD patients, 23 bvFTD patients with mild cognitive impairments and 68 healthy controls (48 for PET and 20 for MRI analyses). Read More

Is the reported increase in young female hospital-treated intentional self-harm real or artefactual?

Aust N Z J Psychiatry 2018 Dec 5:4867418815977. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

1 School of Medicine and Public Health, Faculty of Health and Medicine, University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW, Australia.

Background:: The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has reported an increased rate of hospital-treated intentional self-harm in young females (2000-2012) in Australia. These reported increases arise from institutional data that are acknowledged to underestimate the true rate, although the degree of underestimation is not known.

Objective:: To consider whether the reported increase in young females' hospital-treated intentional self-harm is real or artefactual and specify the degree of institutional underestimation. Read More
