The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and its hormone receptors, i.e. the angiotensin and mineralocorticoid receptor (MR), have emerged as important targets for central nervous system disorders and in particular for major depression. We have recently characterized baseline MR function as a predictor for treatment outcome with standard antidepressants. The aims of this study are (i) to characterize how strongly an early biomarker change (after 2 weeks) is related to outcome and (ii) whether these biomarke...
To assess the efficacy and safety of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRA) in the treatment of non-resolving central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and identify predictive factors of treatment response.
Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is a disabling and demoralizing phenomenon for patients and clinicians. For many years, treatment for depression has relied on the monoamine theory, with medications limited in efficacy and requiring prolonged use before any therapeutic effects are evident. The current article reviews novel approaches to pharmacological treatment of TRD, including N-methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptor antagonists and other receptor agonists and antagonists beyond serotonin and norepine...
The non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist finerenone (BAY 94-8862) has been used to treat chronic heart failure (CHF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). However, conflicting results were reported for its efficacy and safety. The study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of finerenone versus spironolactone or eplerenone in patients with chronic heart failure.
Current guidelines recommend to withdraw mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) blocker treatment for at least 4 weeks when measuring the aldosterone to renin ratio (ARR) as a screening test for primary aldosteronism (PA). We aimed to evaluate the effect of MR blocker treatment on ARR and its components, plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC), and direct renin concentration (DRC). First, we performed a post-hoc analysis of the effect of eplerenone on parathyroid hormone levels in primary hyperparathyroidism (EPATH...
Hypertension and mineralocorticoid receptor activation cause cerebral parenchymal arteriole remodeling; this can limit cerebral perfusion and contribute to cognitive dysfunction. We utilized a mouse model of angiotensin II-induced hypertension to test the hypothesis that mineralocorticoid receptor activation impairs both TRPV4-mediated dilation of cerebral parenchymal arterioles and cognitive function. 16-18-week-old male C57bl/6 mice were treated with angiotensin II (800ng/kg/min) ± the mineralocorticoid ...
Acute kidney disease (AKD), the transition of acute kidney injury to chronic kidney disease, has major clinical significance. Whether mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist will afford target organ protection during this critical stage remains ill-defined.
Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) improve survival among patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF); however, studies have identified low utilization rates. No study has evaluated the prevalence and predictors of MRA prescribing in a nationally representative outpatient cohort.
Depression is among the 10 major causes of disability in Mexico. Yet, local contextual factors associated to the disorder remain poorly understood. We measured the impact of several factors on severe depression such as demographics, pharmacotherapy, multimorbidity, and unhealthy behaviors in Mexican teachers.
Major depressive disorder (MDD) patients have shown elevated plasma levels of pro-inflammatory biomarkers compared to healthy controls. We hypothesized increased serum tumor necrosis factor-alpha receptor subtype 1 (TNF-α R1) is more associated with impaired brain function in patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) than those without TRD.
Recently, the "conceptual endophenotype" approach has been proposed as a means to identify subgroups of patients affected by stress-related psychiatric disorders. Conceptual endophenotypes consist of patterns of psychological, biological, and symptomatic elements. We studied a sample of patients seeking help for psychosomatic and stress-related disorders (total N = 469), who were evaluated with a diagnostic instrument that integrates psychological and biological data to derive 13 endophenotypes, or Neur...
Depression is associated with uncontrolled diabetes, which indicates a lack of insulin effect, yet the role of the insulin receptor in mediating depression is not clearly established because insulin receptors are not required for glucose entry into the brain. However, insulin receptors are important for brain function since insulin receptor knockout mice have depressive-like activity. Depression and cognitive problems are also associated with low insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in the elderly. Rodent s...
Treatment-resistant depression affects millions of people worldwide and is a leading cause of disability and suicide. Studies of treatment-resistant depression outcomes have traditionally focused on depressive symptoms and functional impairment. Quality of life (QoL) has not been well described. We aimed to measure QoL in individuals with treatment-resistant depression and to determine how QoL was related to traditional measures of symptoms and social functioning.
Many women experience moderate-to-severe depression and anxiety in the postpartum period for which pharmacotherapy is often the first-line treatment. Many breastfeeding mothers are reticent to increase their dose or consider additional medication, despite incomplete response, due to potential adverse effects on their newborn. These mothers are amenable to non-pharmacological intervention for complete symptom remission. The current study evaluated the feasibility of an eight-week mindfulness-based cognitive ...
Obesity is a disease that often co-occurs with depression, and some evidence indicates that chronic stress in the perinatal period, in association with overactive glucocorticoids, can cause permanent changes that increase the risk of the development of both depression and obesity later in life. However, the mechanism responsible for the overly potent action of glucocorticoids in both depression and obesity is not known. The aim of the present study was to determine the expression of glucocorticoid receptors...
Serotonin regulates many physiological processes including sleep, appetite, and mood. Thus, serotonergic system is an important target in the treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as major depression and anxiety. This natural neurotransmitter interacts with 7 families of its receptors (5-HT1-7), which cause a variety of pharmacological effects. Using genetically modified animals and selective or preferential agonists and antagonist, numerous studies demonstrated the involvement of almost all serotonin re...
Pharmacokinetics of the Novel, Selective, Non-steroidal Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonist Finerenone in Healthy Volunteers: Results from an Absolute Bioavailability Study and Drug-Drug Interaction Studies In Vitro and In Vivo.
Finerenone is a selective, non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist. In vivo and in vitro studies were performed to assess absolute bioavailability of finerenone, the effect of metabolic enzyme inhibitors on the pharmacokinetics of finerenone and its metabolites, the quantitative contribution of the involved enzymes cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 and CYP2C8 and the relevance of gut wall versus liver metabolism.
Neurotransmitter substance P (SP) and its preferred neurokinin-1 receptor (NK1R) have been implicated in the treatment of affective and addiction disorders. Despite promising preclinical data on antidepressant action, the clinical trials of NK1R antagonists in major depression have been disappointing. There are no direct in vivo imaging studies on NK1R characteristics in patients with a major depressive disorder (MDD).
Patients with Graves' orbitopathy (GO) often show severe esotropia after decompression surgery, especially in cases with severe enlargement of muscles before decompression. In severely afflicted patients, simple recessions of the medial rectus muscle are not sufficient. In these patients, tendon elongation with bovine pericardium (Tutopatch) is an alternative for simultaneous resection of the lateral rectus muscle. We retrospectively analysed our clinical data of patients who underwent corrective surgery of...
Since their discovery, glucocorticoids (GCs) have been extensively used for the treatment of ocular diseases because of their anti-inflammatory, anti-edematous and angiostatic properties. Various GCs have been synthetized to optimize their beneficial anti-inflammatory effects and reduce their effects on sodium retention, identified as a mineralocorticoid effect, leading to a potency and specificity grading of the different GCs. However, the side effects, specificity and potency of GCs are highly tissue spec...
Use of second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) for treatment of depression has increased, and patients with depression and comorbid diabetes or cardiovascular disease are more likely to use SGAs than those without these conditions. We compared SGA and non-SGA depression pharmacotherapies on the risk of diabetes hospitalization or treatment intensification in adults with depression and preexisting diabetes.
Treatment credibility, expectancy, and preference: Prediction of treatment engagement and outcome in a randomized clinical trial of hatha yoga vs. health education as adjunct treatments for depression.
Hatha yoga may be helpful for alleviating depression symptoms. The purpose of this analysis is to determine whether treatment program preference, credibility, or expectancy predict engagement in depression interventions (yoga or a control class) or depression symptom severity over time.
Clear evidence for a physiological role of the mineralocorticoid-like hormone 11-deoxycorticosterone (DOC) and the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) in fish is still lacking. Efforts to demonstrate an osmoregulatory role for this hormone has so far not been conclusive, while a few scattered studies have indicated a role for DOC in development and reproduction. In this study, we investigate the onset of de novo DOC synthesis in parallel with endogenous corticosteroid receptor mRNA production from fertilization...
