Previous studies have found that perinatal women have had detriments to sleep and depression during the pandemic; however, all studies to date in the perinatal setting have lacked a comparator group, so robust conclusions about the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic have not been elucidated.
Data for this study were sourced from 4 active treatment arms of 4 randomized, controlled trials conducted by the National Institutes of Health in the United States between 2006 and 2018.
Patients with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder without psychotic symptoms received intravenous infusions of 0.5 mg/kg ketamine 3 times per week for 2 weeks.
In a case-control study, researchers assessed the potential link between late-onset depression and the risk of developing major cognitive disorder.
The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for major depressive disorder (MDD) in adolescents aged 12 to 18 years, and recommends anxiety screening for children aged 8 to 18 years.
Researchers examined the effect of neuropeptides orexin-A, ghrelin, and neuropeptide Y on hypersomnia and hyperphagia. Both symptoms are more common in people with bipolar disorder.
The researchers of this study explored the impact of a blended approach (bCBT) that included both face-to-face CBT and iCBT on patients with major depressive disorder and insomnia.
This retrospective cohort study evaluated patient data from patients aged 50 years or older who received an acute course of ECT between 2011 and 2019 and were evaluated for cognition and depression outcomes on the basis of baseline cognitive function.
From 2016 to 2020, increases were seen in anxiety and depression among children, while decreases were observed in parent or caregiver mental health and coping with parenting demands.
Whether major depressive disorder is a comorbidity of bipolar disorder isn’t really known. Researchers built a predictive model of major depressive disorder to bipolar disorder conversion and with the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership validated the results across a multi-national network of patient databases.
