Interactive effects of corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 1 gene and work stress on burnout in medical professionals in a Chinese Han population.

J Affect Disord 2019 Mar 30;252:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

The Affiliated Brain Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University (Guangzhou Huiai Hospital), Guangzhou, China; CAS Key Laboratory of Mental Health, Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Background: Burnout is a worked-related stress syndrome caused by long-term exposure to a stressful environment. Dysregulation of the hypothalamic- pituitary- adrenal (HPA) axis may be involved in both stress and burnout; an evaluation of genetic polymorphisms which alter activity in the HPA may be predictive of how likely an environment is to produce burnout.

Methods: Using a cross-sectional design, this study examined whether corticotrophin-releasing hormone receptor 1 (CRHR1) gene polymorphism rs110402 is a risk factor for burnout; further, it explores whether the interaction of stress × CRHR1 gene predicts burnout in the healthcare workers in a Chinese Han population.

Author Affiliations: Healthcare Administration Program, Lewis College of Business, Marshall University (Mrs Bakhamis); Department of Marketing and International Business, Monmouth University (Dr Paul); and Lewis College of Business, Marshall University (Drs Smith and Coustasse), South Charleston, West Virginia.

The number of registered nurses (RNs) in the United States is roughly 3 times the number of physicians and surgeons, making RNs a critically important component of the US health care system. Registered nurse burnout-the state of emotional exhaustion in which the individual feels overwhelmed by work to the point of feeling fatigued, unable to face the demands of the job, and unable to engage with others-is a real concern, having been reported in many hospitals. The purpose of this research was to examine the causes and consequences of burnout syndrome among RNs in US hospitals and its role in the RN shortage in hospitals. Read More

Introduction: Metabolic Syndrome is a set of interrelated risk factors for the emergence and progression of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, such as central obesity (abdominal), elevated blood pressure and disorders of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Peri- and postmenopausal women are particularly at risk of developing MS, by aging and the loss of protective effect of estrogen on the body, additionally by intellectual work associated with a sedentary lifestyle and job stress. The aim of our study was to analyze the frequency of MS and its criteria in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women doing intellectual work, as well as selected factors on which metabolic syndrome depend.

Primary immunodeficiency (PID) diseases result from genetic defects of the immune system that increase a patient's susceptibility to infections. The types of infections that occur in patients with PID diseases are dictated largely by the nature of the immunodeficiency, which can be defined by dysfunction of cellular or humoral defenses. An increasing number of PID diseases, including those with both cellular and humoral defects, have antibody deficiency as a major feature, and as a result can benefit from immunoglobulin replacement therapy.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2018 12 2;15(12). Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Psychology, Faculty of Psychology, University of Almería, 04120 Almería, Spain.

One of the consequences associated with the exposure to chronic stress is the development of burnout syndrome. Given that evaluating this syndrome requires addressing the context in which they are to be used, the purpose of this work was to analyze the psychometric properties and structure of the Burnout Brief Questionnaire (CBB), and to propose a more suitable version for its application to health professionals, and more specifically nurses.

Neuroimaging Research Unit, Institute of Experimental Neurology, Division of Neuroscience, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic inflammatory, demyelinating and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system in young adults. This disorder is a heterogeneous, multifactorial, immune-mediated disease that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. In most patients, reversible episodes of neurological dysfunction lasting several days or weeks characterize the initial stages of the disease (that is, clinically isolated syndrome and relapsing-remitting MS).

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2018 8;17:43. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Research and Training Department, Amanuel Mental Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Introduction: There is a cultural variability around the perception of what causes the syndrome of schizophrenia. As far as the cause of schizophrenia by the general public concerned, people living in western countries focus mainly on biological and social risk factors such as genetic vulnerability, disease of the brain, infection or stressful social conditions or personal weakness, but the predominant views held by people living in non-western countries focus mainly on supernatural and religious factors. Awareness and beliefs about the causes of mental illnesses influence the preferred treatments. Read More
