- Hospitalization risk in pediatric patients with bipolar disorder treated with lurasidone vs. other oral atypical antipsychotics: a real-world retrospective claims database studyby Aditi Kadakia on October 14, 2021
Background: Real-world evidence on atypical antipsychotic (AAP) use in pediatric bipolar disorder is limited.Objective: To assess the risk of all-cause and psychiatric hospitalization among pediatric patients with bipolar disorder when treated with lurasidone versus other atypical antipsychotics (AAPs).Methods: This retrospective cohort study used commercial claims data (January 1, 2011 to June 30, 2017) to identify pediatric patients (age ≤17 years) with bipolar disorder treated with oral...
- Insulin acts as an atypical KCNQ1/KCNE1-current activator and reverses long QT in insulin-resistant aged rats by accelerating the ventricular action potential repolarization through affecting the beta(3) -adrenergic receptor signaling pathwayby Yusuf Olgar on October 11, 2021
Insufficient-heart function is associated with myocardial insulin resistance in the elderly, particularly associated with long-QT, in a dependency on dysfunctional KCNQ1/KCNE1-channels. So, we aimed to examine the contribution of alterations in KCNQ1/KCNE1-current (I(Ks) ) to the aging-related remodeling of the heart as well as the role of insulin treatment on I(Ks) in the aged rats. Prolonged late-phase action potential (AP) repolarization of ventricular cardiomyocytes from insulin-resistant...
- Understanding the health outcomes of the work pattern transformation in the age of gig economy: an investigation of the association between multiple-job holding and health status in the United States and Chinaby Bocong Yuan on October 10, 2021
CONCLUSION: Multiple-job holding, with different structures, has both bright and dark side for health outcomes. To maintain an optimal level of multiple-job holding could benefit individual health.
- The Impact of Brief Interventions on Functioning Among those Demonstrating Anxiety, Depressive, and Adjustment Disorder Symptoms in Primary Care: The Effectiveness of the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) Modelby Kevin M Wilfong on October 9, 2021
Limited scalability combined with limited opportunities for patients to receive evidence-based interventions in traditional behavioral health treatment models for anxiety and depression creates a gap in access to adequate care. Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) is one model of treatment in which behavioral health consultants (BHC) work directly within primary care settings, but there is limited evidence regarding the effectiveness of this model of care. The functional outcomes and...
