Bipolar disorder is a neuropsychiatric disorder that is characterized by fluctuations between manic and depressive phases. Lithium is the original and best mood stabilizing treatment for bipolar disorder. While its mechanism is not well understood, it is believed to have a strong genetic component, as several studies suggest that lithium responsiveness, in bipolar disorder, is heritable. In this study we aimed to identify genetic variants that are associated with lithium responsiveness in bipolar disorder.
At least half of the cases of bipolar disorder begin in childhood or adolescence. How do you decide whether a young patient's symptoms indicate bipolar disorder? Read this CME Brief Report to learn about reliable tools and methods to identify bipolar disorder in pediatric patients.
It has been suggested that agitated depression (AD) is a common, severe feature in bipolar disorder. We aimed to estimate the prevalence of AD and investigate whether presence of AD was associated with episodic and lifetime clinical features in a large well-characterised bipolar disorder sample.
Evidence has shown a significant association between bipolar disorder and prevalence of risky sexual behaviors. However, the relationship between bipolar disorder and risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) requires further investigation, as do the effects of bipolar disorder medications on STI risk.
Metacognition is an important factor in the development and persistence of bipolar disorder. One of the most striking examples of impairment in metacognitive functioning in bipolar disorder is the lack of insight these patients have in their disorder. Despite its importance, research regarding metacognition in bipolar disorder is scarce. Furthermore, the neurocognitive basis of metacognitive functioning is unknown.
To clarify the clinical features preceding the onset of Bipolar disorder (BD) has become a public health priority for the prevention of high morbidity and mortality. BD remains frequently under- or misdiagnosed, and under- or mistreated, often for years.
Women with bipolar disorder have a high risk of illness relapse postpartum, including psychosis. The aim of the study was to explore how perinatal women with bipolar disorder relate to the risk. What are their concerns? How do they prepare for the dual demands of mood episodes and motherhood?
Subjects fulfilling DSM 5 criteria of Bipolar I disorder with onset before 18 years on Lithium prophylaxis were included. A total of 575 subjects with Bipolar Disorder were screened, 141 had early-onset Bipolar disorder, 72 patients were on Lithium and 52 provided informed consent and entered the study. Thirty-four were in the prospective group, and 18 were in the retrospective arm. Mean age at onset was 16.13 (1.40) years. About 31% (n = 16) were initiated on Lithium following first episode. Mean age a...
Bipolar disorder (BPD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder with a complex pattern of inheritance. Although many genetic studies have been conducted on BPD, its genetic correlates remain uncertain. This study aimed to identify the genetic cause of the disorder in an Indian family, which is comprehensively evaluated clinically and is under follow-up for over 12 years.
The purpose of this article is to provide psychiatrists and other health care professionals who treat patients with major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder a set of best practices, tools, and other methods to improve their ability to make a more accurate diagnosis between major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder and to reach this diagnosis sooner, given a particular set of patient-related circumstances and comorbidities..
The association between older-age bipolar disorder and cognitive impairments may be mediated by vascular burden. The aim of the study was to examine the difference of cognitive function between older people with late-onset bipolar disorder (LOBD) and early-onset bipolar disorder (EOBD) by considering rigorous vascular risk burden evaluation, comprehensive cognitive tests, and relevant biochemistry data.
Little is known about potential differences in the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder (BD) across development. The present study aimed to characterize age-related neural mechanisms of BD.
In the last five years, the debate around the comorbidity between bipolar disorder (BD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has flourished within the international psychiatric community and several studies have been published on therapeutic strategies.
There is a dearth of research about the aging process among individuals with bipolar disorder (BD). One potential strategy to overcome the challenge of interpreting findings from existing limited older-age bipolar disorder (OABD) research studies is to pool or integrate data, taking advantage of potential overlap or similarities in assessment methods and harmonizing or cross-walking measurements where different measurement tools are used to evaluate overlapping construct domains. This report describes the m...
Bipolar disorder is a common, severe mental health condition and a major financial burden for healthcare systems across the globe. There is some evidence that unrecognized bipolar disorder is prevalent amongst patients with depression in primary care which can lead to non-optimal treatment. However, a systematic synthesis of this literature is lacking. We aimed to determine the percentage of primary care patients who are diagnosed with depression that have unrecognized bipolar disorder.
Multiple lines of evidence suggest that the onset and course of bipolar disorder is influenced by environmental light conditions. Increased suppression of melatonin by light (supersensitivity) in patients with bipolar disorder has been postulated as an endophenotype by several studies. However, due to methodological shortcomings, the results of these studies remain inconclusive. This study investigated melatonin suppression in euthymic patients with bipolar I disorder using evening blue light specifically t...
The recent conceptualisation of bipolar disorder as a neuroprogressive illness has highlighted the potential importance of prevention and early intervention in high-risk populations. Undiagnosed bipolar disorder early in the disease course is associated with adverse clinical outcomes and impaired functioning for patients, which in turn has economic consequences. Despite the mounting evidence that childbirth is one of the most potent and specific triggers of manic symptoms, studies are not available on the e...
We read with great interest the review article by Olivia M Dean and colleagues on the updated adjunctive treatment options for bipolar disorder. In the article, they summarized the pharmacotherapeutic, psychological, and neuromodulation treatment options including re-purposed agents, nutraceuticals, hormone treatments, psychotherapy, interpersonal and social rhythm therapy, mindfulness, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, and e-health approaches. However, they have not made any mention about light...
Despite abundant literature demonstrating increased metabolic syndrome (MetS) prevalence and important clinical correlates of MetS among middle-age adults with bipolar disorder, little is known about this topic among adolescents and young adults early in their course of bipolar disorder. We therefore examined this topic in the Course and Outcome of Bipolar Youth (COBY) study.
The influence of gender on bipolar disorder is controversial and it is unclear if inpatient care differs between men and women. Here, we investigate for gender differences in the inpatient length of stay for Swedes admitted for bipolar disorder and explore other factors that could explain any observed association.
Childhood trauma is a complex experience, much reported by subjects with bipolar disorder. There are still few studies that assess its consequences in a community sample of bipolar in early stage. The aim of the present study is to assess the association between childhood trauma and clinical outcomes, including the global functioning, in a community sample of young adults with bipolar disorder. This is a cross-sectional study with a community sample of subjects with bipolar disorder, from 23 to 30 years old...
Schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type (SAD) and bipolar disorder I (BD) present a large clinical overlap. In a 1-year follow-up, we aimed to evaluate days to hospitalization (DTH) and predictors of relapse in a SAD-BD cohort of patients.
The systematic review by Duffy et al. documents the paucity of data supporting the therapeutic use of lithium in children (people under 18 years of age) with bipolar disorder. The lack of clear-cut evidence of efficacy is a notable discrepancy between children and adults in current psychopharmacology. In adults, lithium is a standard treatment of bipolar disorder, with proven efficacy for both acute symptom control and prevention of recurrence. In children, only four randomized controlled clinical trials h...
Cognitive dysfunction affects a significant proportion of people with bipolar disorder (BD), but the cause, trajectory and correlates of such dysfunction is unclear. Increased understanding of these factors is required to progress treatment development for this symptom dimension.
Cardiometabolic diseases are suggested to be associated with bipolar disorder. However, the risk of metabolic disorders in unaffected siblings of patients with bipolar disorder remains unclear.
