Psychopharmacology Algorithms for Major Depressive Disorder: Current Status.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2021 ;1305:429-445

UT Health Center of Excellence on Mood Disorders, Faillace Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, McGovern Medical School, Houston, TX, USA.

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, and a considerable portion of depressed patients does not respond well to available treatment strategies. Algorithm-based treatment may contribute to improving the MDD outcomes and have the potential to homogenize the pharmacological treatment of MDD patients, facilitating outcome research and cost-effectiveness analysis. This chapter provides a critical review of the available literature on the use of treatment algorithms for the management of MDD. Read More

The clinical effectiveness of using a predictive algorithm to guide antidepressant treatment in primary care (PReDicT): an open-label, randomised controlled trial.

Neuropsychopharmacology 2021 Feb 26. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

P1vital Ltd, Howbery Park, Wallingford, UK.

Depressed patients often do not respond to the first antidepressant prescribed, resulting in sequential trials of different medications. Personalised medicine offers a means of reducing this delay; however, the clinical effectiveness of personalised approaches to antidepressant treatment has not previously been tested. We assessed the clinical effectiveness of using a predictive algorithm, based on behavioural tests of affective cognition and subjective symptoms, to guide antidepressant treatment. Read More

Effects of hypoxia on the respiratory and metabolic responses to progressive cooling in newborn rodents that range in heterothermic expression.

Exp Physiol 2021 Apr 8;106(4):1005-1023. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? Adult homeotherms and heterotherms differ in cold and hypoxia tolerance and in how they match O supply and demand in response to these stressors. It has never been ascertained whether these differences reflect different developmental trajectories or whether they are already present at birth. What is the main finding and its importance? When exposed to cold and hypoxia, newborn rodents differed in how they matched O supply and demand, with responses reflecting the degree of heterothermic expression and tolerance. Read More

Larval tolerance to food limitation is stronger in an exotic barnacle than in its native competitor.

Zoology (Jena) 2021 Apr 17;145:125891. Epub 2020 Dec 17.

School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University, Askew Street, LL59 5AB, Anglesey, Wales, United Kingdom; Marine Station of Helgoland, Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Ostkaje 1118, DE-27498, Helgoland, Germany. Electronic address:

A critical question in marine ecology is understanding how organisms will cope with environmental conditions under climate change. Increasing temperatures not only have a direct effect on marine organisms but may also lead to food limitation through for example trophic mismatches, or by the increased metabolic demands imposed by developing at high temperatures. Using barnacles from a population of North Wales, we studied the combined effect of temperature and food density on the survival, settlement success, developmental time and body size of larvae of the native barnacle Semibalanus balanoides and its exotic competitor, the barnacle Austrominius modestus.

Poly(butylene succinate--butylene acetylenedicarboxylate): Copolyester with Novel Nucleation Behavior.

Polymers (Basel) 2021 Jan 24;13(3). Epub 2021 Jan 24.

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, China University of Petroleum, Beijing 102249, China.

Big spherulite structure and high crystallinity are the two main drawbacks of poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) and hinder its application. In this work, a new type of copolyester poly(butylene succinate--butylene acetylenedicarboxylate) (PBSAD) is synthesized. With the incorporation of acetylenedicarboxylate (AD) units into PBS chains, the crystallization temperature and crystallinity are depressed by excluding AD units to the amorphous region. Read More
