Researchers found a weak signal for persistent ADHD to be more associated with 8-year follow-up of bipolar disorder than remitting ADHD.
Researchers conducted a retrospective review to assess the clinical and demographic characteristics of patients with and without rapid cycling in bipolar disorder.
Researchers assessed the total effect of bipolar disorder and major depression on cognitive function in adults between 40 and 69 years old and measured the effects mediated by psychotropic drug use and cardiometabolic disease.
Investigators compared antibodies to common infectious agents, including cytomegalovirus, Toxoplasma gondii, and measles, as well as the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein, in serum samples in patients with bipolar disorder vs control participants without bipolar disorder.
Investigators analyzed the potential metabolic effects of lurasidone in a sample of patients with bipolar I depression.
Compared with olanzapine and aripiprazole, lurasidone was linked with lower risk for all-cause and psychiatric hospitalization in pediatric patients.
Lithium use was associated with lower intensity of depressive symptoms, reduced clinical severity, and lower benzodiazepine use.
Patients with bipolar disorder may experience elevated cortical androgen activity compared with individuals without bipolar disorder.
Delay discounting may be considered a transdiagnostic process across many psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
Children with pediatric bipolar disorder who had a parent with bipolar disorder showed a greater prevalence of comorbid ADHD compared with children with the same diagnosis but healthy parents.
