Early-onset late-life depression: Association with body mass index, obesity, and treatment response.

Compr Psychoneuroendocrinol 2021 Nov 23;8:100096. Epub 2021 Oct 23.

Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, And Berlin Institute of Health, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Hindenburgdamm 30, 12203, Berlin, Germany.

Early-onset (EOD) and late-onset (LOD) late-life depression might differ in etiology, clinical features, and treatment response. While EOD is more frequently associated with a family history of affective disorders and personality aspects, LOD is thought to be more strongly driven by acquired cerebrovascular risk factors associated with vascular pathology, executive dysfunction, and poor treatment response. However, in a systematic review, EOD and LOD only differed in the frequency of affective disorders in the family history. Read More

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a common condition that affects the general population over a wide range of ages, regardless of gender and social background. Early-onset of MDD in adulthood, between ages of 18 and 30 years, is associated with worse outcomes and increased years of disability. Stress load and physical health have been associated with age of onset in MDD. Read More

Long term high fat diet induces metabolic disorders and aggravates behavioral disorders and cognitive deficits in MAPT P301L transgenic mice.

Metab Brain Dis 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences, Division of Health Sciences, University of South Australia, Adelaide, SA, Australia.

Most Alzheimer disease (AD) patients present as sporadic late onset AD, with metabolic factors playing an important role in the occurrence and development of AD. Given the link between peripheral insulin resistance and tau pathology in streptozotocin-injected and db/db mouse models of diabetes, we fed high fat diet (HFD) to pR5 mice expressing P301L mutant human tau, with the aim of developing a new model with characteristics of obesity, T2DM and AD to mimic AD patients exacerbated by obesity and T2DM, an increasing trend in modern society. In our study, pR5 and C57BL/6 (WT) mice were randomly allocated to a standard diet (STD) or HFD for 30 weeks starting at 8 weeks of age. Read More

Substance use-related factors and psychosocial characteristics among Turkish adults with early- and late-onset substance use disorder.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2022 Jun 9:1-22. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Bahcesehir University, Istanbul, Turkey.

The onset of substance use is a strong predictor of substance use disorders and related problems. This study examined the differences between early- and late-onset substance use in personality and substance use characteristics, traumatic experiences, and social support with a sample of 100 Turkish adults with substance use disorders. Early onset (<18 years) was associated with more traumatic experiences, increased risk of developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and higher levels of depressive symptoms compared to late onset (≥18 years).

Sleep and Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease: Shared Genetic Risk Factors, Drug Targets, Molecular Mechanisms, and Causal Effects.

Front Genet 2022 17;13:794202. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, Peking University, Beijing, China.

Late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with sleep-related phenotypes (SRPs). The fact that whether they share a common genetic etiology remains largely unknown. We explored the shared genetics and causality between AD and SRPs by using high-definition likelihood (HDL), cross-phenotype association study (CPASSOC), transcriptome-wide association study (TWAS), and bidirectional Mendelian randomization (MR) in summary-level data for AD ( = 455,258) and summary-level data for seven SRPs (sample size ranges from 359,916 to 1,331,010).

J Psychiatry Neurosci 2022 May-Jun;47(3):E186-E193. Epub 2022 May 4.

From the Department of Psychiatry (Tseng, Jeng, Cheng, Chu, Chen, Bai, Tsai, Su, Li), Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan; the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Sciences (Lu), National Yang Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan; the Division of Psychiatry (Cheng, Chen, Bai, Tsai, Su, Li), School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan; the Department of Psychiatry (Su), Cheng Hsin General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan

Background: Frontal asymmetry plays a major role in depression. However, patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) have widespread hypofrontality. We investigated whether patients with TRD have a characteristic frontal activation pattern in functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) findings and how the frontal cortex responds to different levels of cognitive tasks.

Luteolin Enhances Choroid Plexus 5-MTHF Brain Transport to Promote Hippocampal Neurogenesis in LOD Rats.

Front Pharmacol 2022 25;13:826568. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

Research Center for Basic Integrative Medicine, Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou, China.

Folates, provided by food, are commonly used antidepressant synergists in late-onset depression (LOD). However, increased intake of folic acid in the elderly population might lead to the accumulation of unmetabolized folic acid in the systemic circulation, leading to enhanced deterioration of the central nervous system function. In addition, folates cannot access the brain directly because of the blood-brain barrier. Read More

Clinical Approaches to Late-Onset Psychosis.

J Pers Med 2022 Mar 2;12(3). Epub 2022 Mar 2.

Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, Hanyang University, Gyungchun-ro 153, Guri-si 11923, Korea.

Psychosis can include schizophrenia, mood disorders with psychotic features, delusional disorder, active delirium, and neurodegenerative disorders accompanied by various psychotic symptoms. Late-onset psychosis requires careful intervention due to the greater associated risks of secondary psychosis; higher morbidity and mortality rates than early-onset psychosis; and complicated treatment considerations due to the higher incidence of adverse effects, even with the black box warning against antipsychotics. Pharmacological treatment, including antipsychotics, should be carefully initiated with the lowest dosage for short-term efficacy and monitoring of adverse side effects. Read More

Daily mocha coffee intake and psycho-cognitive status in non-demented non-smokers subjects with subcortical ischaemic vascular disease.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2022 Mar 13:1-8. Epub 2022 Mar 13.

Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences and Advanced Technologies, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Coffee intake has been recently associated with better cognition and mood in mild vascular cognitive impairment (mVCI). As tobacco can reduce the caffeine half-life, we excluded smokers from the original sample. Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS), mini-mental state examination (MMSE), Stroop Colour-Word Interference Test (Stroop), activities of daily living (ADL0) and instrumental ADL were the outcome measures.

Depressive and Anxious Temperaments as Predictors of Late Onset Bipolar Disorder? Preliminary Results of a "Real World" Exploratory Study.

Front Psychiatry 2022 17;13:836187. Epub 2022 Feb 17.

Unit of Clinical Psychiatry, Department of Neurosciences/DIMSC, School of Medicine and Surgery, Polytechnic University of Marche, Ancona, Italy.

Introduction: Bipolar disorder (BD) onset typically occurs between 15 and 30 years, being diagnosed under the age of 50 in 90% of cases, named "non-late onset BD" (non-LOBD). However, clinical observation of late-onset BD (LOBD) raised some concern regarding a differential psychopathological pattern, outcomes and treatment, including a specific affective temperament vulnerability. Therefore, an exploratory study in the "real world" was carried out by investigating psychopathological and temperamental features of a psychogeriatric cohort of LOBD and non-LOBD subjects.

Immune Response Is Key to Genetic Mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 Infection With Psychiatric Disorders Based on Differential Gene Expression Pattern Analysis.

Front Immunol 2022 4;13:798538. Epub 2022 Feb 4.

Department of Pharmacognosy, School of Pharmacy, China Medical University, Shenyang, China.

Existing evidence demonstrates that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) leads to psychiatric illness, despite its main clinical manifestations affecting the respiratory system. People with mental disorders are more susceptible to COVID-19 than individuals without coexisting mental health disorders, with significantly higher rates of severe illness and mortality in this population. The incidence of new psychiatric diagnoses after infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is also remarkably high. Read More
