Impact of KMN network genes on progression and prognosis of non-small cell lung cancer.

Anticancer Drugs 2021 Aug 19. Epub 2021 Aug 19.

Department of Respiratory, The First Affiliated Hospital, Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, Guangxi, People's Republic of China.

The Knl1-Mis12-Ndc80 (KMN) network genes (including KNL, MIS12 and NDC80 complexes) encode a highly conserved network of protein complexes that act in cell mitosis. In recent years, multiple studies revealed that KMN network genes also play a vital role in tumor appearance and growth. However, the role of the KMN gene network in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains unknown. Read More

Pattern recognition of magnetic resonance imaging-based gray matter volume measurements classifies bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder.

J Affect Disord 2018 02 13;227:498-505. Epub 2017 Nov 13.

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA; Molecular Imaging and Neuropathology Division, New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York, NY, USA; Department of Radiology, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Bipolar Disorder (BD) cannot be reliably distinguished from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) until the first manic or hypomanic episode. Consequently, many patients with BD are treated with antidepressants without mood stabilizers, a strategy that is often ineffective and carries a risk of inducing a manic episode. We previously reported reduced cortical thickness in right precuneus, right caudal middle-frontal cortex and left inferior parietal cortex in BD compared with MDD. Read More

Psychol Med 2017 Apr 19;47(6):1013-1029. Epub 2016 Dec 19.

Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics,Virginia Commonwealth University,Richmond,VA,USA.

This review seeks to determine the degree to which modern operationalized diagnostic criteria for mania reflect the clinical features of mania described historically by expert textbook authors. Clinical descriptions of mania appearing in 18 textbooks published between 1899 and 1956 were reviewed and compared to the criteria for mania from six modern operationalized diagnostic systems. Twenty-two prominent symptoms and signs were reported by five or more authors. Read More

The manic phase of Bipolar disorder significantly impairs theory of mind decoding.

Psychiatry Res 2016 05 29;239:275-80. Epub 2016 Mar 29.

Department of Psychiatry, Queen's University, Kingston Ontario, Canada; Department of Psychology, Queen's University, Kingston Ontario, Canada; Centre for Neuroscience, Queen's University, Kingston Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Bipolar disorder is associated with significant deficits in the decoding of others' mental states in comparison to healthy participants. However, differences in theory of mind decoding ability among patients in manic, depressed, and euthymic phases of bipolar disorder is currently unknown. Fifty-nine patients with bipolar I or II disorder (13 manic, 25 depressed, 20 euthymic) completed the "Reading the Mind in the Eyes" Task (Eyes task) and the Animals Task developed to control for non-mentalistic response demands of the Eyes Task.

Depression: discrete or continuous?

Brad Bowins

Psychopathology 2015 13;48(2):69-78. Epub 2014 Dec 13.

Centre for Theoretical Research in Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology, Toronto, Ont., Canada.

Elucidating the true structure of depression is necessary if we are to advance our understanding and treatment options. Central to the issue of structure is whether depression represents discrete types or occurs on a continuum. Nature almost universally operates on the basis of continuums, whereas human perception favors discrete categories. Read More

Neurofunctional effects of quetiapine in patients with bipolar mania.

Bipolar Disord 2015 Jun 31;17(4):444-9. Epub 2014 Oct 31.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, Division of Bipolar Disorders Research, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Objectives: Several lines of evidence suggest that abnormalities within portions of the extended limbic network involved in affective regulation and expression contribute to the neuropathophysiology of bipolar disorder. In particular, portions of the prefrontal cortex have been implicated in the appearance of manic symptomatology. The effect of atypical antipsychotics on activation of these regions, however, remains poorly understood. Read More

Am J Psychiatry 2013 Jan;170(1):31-42

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, USA.

Objective: Episodes of bipolar disorder are defined as depressive or manic, but depressive and manic symptoms can combine in the same episode. Coexistence or rapid alternation of depressive and manic symptoms in the same episode may indicate a more severe form of bipolar disorder and may pose diagnostic and treatment challenges. However, definitions of mixed states, especially those with prominent depression, are not well established. Read More

[The difference between depression and melancholia: two distinct conditions that were combined into a single category in DSM-III].

Susumu Ohmae

Seishin Shinkeigaku Zasshi 2012 ;114(8):886-905

Department of Psychiatry, Toranomon Hospital.

In DSM-III (1980), depressive states of neurosis and those of manic-depressive illness (melancholia or endogenous depression) were combined into the single category "major depression," which is the progenitor of "major depressive disorder" in DSM-IV-TR (2000). According to Hamilton, the word "depression" is used in three different ways. In common speech, it is used to describe the state of sadness that all persons experience when they lose something of importance to them. Read More

Aneta Lakić

Vojnosanit Pregl 2012 Feb;69(2):201-4

Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Clinic for Neurology and Psychiatry for Children and Adolescents, Belgrade, Serbia.

Introduction: Hyperkinetic disorder or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a clinical entity consisting of a cluster of symptoms including hyperactivity, attention disorder and impulse control disorder group. In the context of ADHD etiology we may say that genetic, clinical and imaging studies point out a disruption of the brain dopamine system, which is corroborated by the clinical effectiveness of stimulant drugs, which increase extracellular dopamine in the brain. Basically, it is a biological and not psychological disorder, which is important both for the comprehension and therapeutical approach to this problem. Read More

Medical College of Soochow University, Suzhou 215123, People’s Republic of China.

Lithium is the first line of therapeutic drugs used to treat both mania and depression in bipolar disorder.Although a body of research suggests that lithium acts as a cognitive enhancer, other animal studies suggest that lithium induces cognitive deficits. Comparatively, the effects of lithium on cognitive behaviour in these studies are inconsistent and contradictory. Read More

Bipolar and ADHD Comorbidity: Both Artifact and Outgrowth of Shared Mechanisms.

Clin Psychol (New York) 2010 Dec;17(4):350-359

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Published rates of comorbidity between pediatric bipolar disorder (PBD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been higher than would be expected if they were independent conditions, but also dramatically different across different studies. This review examines processes that could artificially create the appearance of comorbidity or substantially bias estimates of the ADHD-BPD comorbidity rate, including: categorization of dimensional constructs, overlap among diagnostic criteria, over-splitting, developmental sequencing, and referral or surveillance biases. Evidence also suggests some mechanisms for "true" BPD-ADHD comorbidity, including shared risk factors, distinct subtypes, and weak causal relationships. Read More

Biological Psychiatry Laboratory, McLean Hospital, Belmont, and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02478, USA.

The anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) are a family of hormones that includes testosterone and its derivatives. These substances have been used by elite athletes since the 1950s, but they did not become widespread drugs of abuse in the general population until the 1980s. Thus, knowledge of the medical and behavioral effects of illicit AAS use is still evolving. Read More
