Abstract Purpose Patients with dissociative (non-epileptic) seizures typically receive their diagnosis from neurologists, but are often referred to psychiatrists, whom they may be reluctant to go and see. We aimed to assess which factors were associated with first attendance at psychiatric services. Methods A cohort study of 698 participants involved in the pre-randomisation phase of the CODES trial, a randomised controlled trial assessing the benefit of cognitive behavioural therapy for dissoci...

Abstract Background : Several diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder (MDE) overlap with those of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Furthermore, atypical MDE (A-MDE), a subtype of MDE characterised by profound fatigue and which has frequently been linked with CFS, exhibits similar low cortisol levels to CFS. However, this result has been only found in specimens designed for measuring acute cortisol levels. In this study, we measure cortisol levels in subjects with CFS and in subjects wit...

Background Delay to start antiretroviral therapy (ART) and nonadherence compromise the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV (PLWH), raise the cost of care and increase risk of transmission to sexual partners. To date, interventions to improve adherence to ART have had limited success, perhaps because they have failed to systematically elicit and address both perceptual and practical barriers to adherence. The primary aim of this study is to determine the efficacy of the Supporting UPta...

Persistent physical symptoms (PPS), also known as medically unexplained symptoms (MUS), affect approximately 50% of patients in secondary care and are often associated with disability, psychological distress and increased health care costs. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has demonstrated both short- and long-term efficacy with small to medium effect sizes for PPS, with larger treatment effects for specific PPS syndromes, including non-cardiac chest pain, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and c...

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is chronic disabling illness characterized by severe disabling fatigue, typically made worse by exertion. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is thought by some to be the same disorder (then referred to as CFS/ME) and by others to be different. There is an urgent need to find effective treatments for CFS. The UK Medical Research Council PACE trial published in 2011 compared available treatments and concluded that when added to specialist medical care, cognitive behaviou...

Summary Background Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is common, affecting 10–20% of the adult population worldwide, with many people reporting ongoing symptoms despite first-line therapies. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is recommended in guidelines for refractory IBS but there is insufficient access to CBT for IBS and uncertainty about whether benefits last in the longer term. Assessing Cognitive behavioural Therapy for IBS (ACTIB) was a large, randomised, controlled trial of two forms of CBT...

Objective: We aimed to characterise the demographics of adults with dissociative (non-epileptic) seizures, placing emphasis on distribution of age at onset, male:female ratio, levels of deprivation and dissociative seizure semiology. Methods: We collected demographic and clinical data from 698 adults with dissociative seizures recruited to the screening phase of the CODES Trial, from 27 neurology/specialist epilepsy clinics in the United Kingdom. We described the cohort in terms of age, age at o...
