Abstract
Of 3 1 6 patients with a major depressive disorder who were followed for between 6 months and 2 years, 80 (25%) had a preexisting chronic minor depression of at least 2 years’ duration. The chronic minor depression reduced the apparent effect of the known predictors of recovery and relapse from the major depressive disorder and predicted a very pernicious course for the chronic depression. Furthermore, the longer the patient continued to suffer from a chronic minor depression after recovering from the major depression, the greater the probability that relapse into another major depression would preempt recovery from the chronic depression.

• For several years the Research Diagnostic Criteria (RDC) have been used widely by investigators to select and describe research subjects. These criteria were used as the initial basis for the specified diagnostic criteria for the major diagnostic categories of DSM-III . With the availability of DSM-III in early 1980, research investigators involved in ongoing studies using the RDC and those planning future studies need to understand the relationship between these two systems so that they can m...

We report on the treatment received by 217 patients in the community with a diagnosis of major depressive disorder of at least one month's duration. Only a low proportion of subjects received intensive treatment with antidepressant medication or electroconvulsive therapy, as judged by research standards and current clinical teaching. Specific associations emerge between treatment and several clinical, sociodemographic, and diagnostic variables; however, taken together these variables account for...

Although ‘ ‘double depression ‘ ‘-major depressive disorder superimposed on an underlying chronic depression-is a f requent phenomenon, the concept has not been well formulated clinically and has rarely been described in the research literature. The authors found that 1) 26% of 101 patients who met the criteria for major depressive disorder had an underlying chronic depressive disorder of at least 2 years’ duration, 2) “recovery” ratesfor patients with superimposed depression differed greatly de...

• Investigators who wish to use new procedures usually wish to relate their results to those already in the literature. This often results in the use of both old and new measures. The Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia Regular and Change Versions (SADS and SADS-C) have advantages over the widely used Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS). A procedure was developed to extract the HDRS score from the SADS and SADS-C. The comparative reliability and the validity of the extracted H...

• Early-onset characterological depressions are distinguished from late-onset chronic depressions that complicate the longterm course of unipolar and nonaffective illnesses. In turn, characterological depressions are divisible into at least two subtypes: (1) "Subaffective dysthymias" have even sex distribution, are often complicated by superimposed depressive episodes, rapid eye movement latency is shortened, and they tend to respond to tricyclics or lithium carbonate. In brief, they share many ...

Summarizing recent work on the relationship between character disorder, neurosis, and primary depression, the authors acknowledge that the “neurotic depression” of DSM II is too vague and heterogenous a diagnostic term for clinical utility. The DSM III concept of dysthymia, which replaces it, retains the useful concept of characterological propensity to dysphoria, but may also be unnecessarily broad. Noting that chronic depressions may occur in the context of a variety of affective and nonaffect...

• This is a report on the history and implications of the collaborative effort that evolved from the 1969 National Institute of Mental Health conference on the psychobiology of depression. The major issues identified at that time were the need to (1) assess relative validities of current systems of nosology and (2) retest critical biological hypotheses concerning the etiology and nature of the depressive disorders. Research was required that would be multidisciplinary and involve clinical settin...

Abstract Background The episodic nature of major depressive disorder (MDD) in clinically referred adults has been well-characterized, particularly by the NIMH Collaborative Depression Study. Previous work has established that MDD also is episodic prior to adulthood, but no study has yet provided comprehensive information on the actual course of MDD in clinically referred juveniles. Thus, the present investigation sought to characterize recovery, recurrence, and their predictors across multiple e...

has diagnos¬ tic, prognostic, and etiologic importance. Many studies of outcome in bipolar disorder were carried out before the era when well-defined diagnostic criteria were applied in the selection of such study populations or outcome measures were systematically defined.1"6 In many studies, the proportion of subjects with missing data because of unavailability for fol¬ low-up is not specified or unavailability for follow-up has not been evaluated critically as a source of bias.2,3 There are n...

Abstract Background In this post-hoc analysis, rates of remission and recovery were evaluated in patients with bipolar depression treated with lurasidone. Methods Outpatients meeting DSM-IV-TR criteria for bipolar I depression, were randomized to 6 weeks of once-daily, double-blind treatment with lurasidone 20–60 mg, lurasidone 80–120 mg or placebo, followed by a 6-month, open-label, flexible-dose, lurasidone continuation study. Recovery was defined as meeting criteria for combined symptomatic r...

This is a single case study utilizing time-series analysis for a young adult man with major depressive disorder and dysthymic disorder (i.e., double depression [DD]) and intermittent explosive disorder (IED). Treatment consisted of long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy (LTPP) with an emphasis on facilitating emotional expression and fostering autonomy. During 13 months of therapy, the patient completed daily measures related to his presenting complaint, including overall distress and episodes of...

Abstract Background Previous studies have shown that major depressive patients may differ in several features according to gender, but the existence of a specific male depressive syndrome remains controversial. Methods As part of the EPIDEP National Multisite French Study of 493 consecutive DSM-IV major depressive patients evaluated in at least two semi-structured interviews 1 month apart, 125 (27.7%) were of male gender, whereas 317 (72.3%) were female, after exclusion of bipolar I patients.

Affective disorders are a group of psychiatric diseases that can affect an individual at any given age. Also called mood disorders, they can be distinguished into two different types: major depressive disorder, also called major depression, and bipolar disorder, which is known as manic depression. People affected by major depression most often have a low mood, and are consistently in a state of unhappiness. Although it was shown that genetics play a role in the predisposition of depression, this...
