#1
Maju Mathew Koola
Preclinical evidence shows that the minocycline and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) combination synergistically improved cognition. Meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with minocycline and NAC have shown some efficacy signal for positive, cognitive, and negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Hence, the combination may be more effective than either medication alone. The objective of this article is to highlight the potential role of the minocycline-NAC combination for the treatment of schizophrenia. The antipsychotic-minocycline-NAC combination is promising and has the potential to concurrently treat positive, cognitive, and primary negative symptoms...

REVIEW
Shreeya Gyawali, Bichitra Nanda Patra
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by persistent deficits in social communication, social interaction and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities. The concept of autism has changed since its inception, from childhood schizophrenia to neuro-variation. These changes in concept have been accompanied by changes in the diagnostic threshold through which the 'case' of autism is identified. The occurrence of multiple changes in its diagnostic criteria over last 80 odd years opens up the possibility of challenges being posed to the existence of the disorder as it is today, with a possibility of newer conceptualization of autism coming up in the future...

REVIEW
Tamonud Modak, Tamonud Modak, Siddharth Sarkar
Despite proven clinical utility, use of sublinugual buprenorphine is fraught with issues of potential diversion among patients with opioid dependence. Transdermal buprenorphine patches provide an alternative delivery model that can be utilized to reduce such diversion. This narrative review discusses the transdermal buprenorphine formulations, and its pharmacology, drug interaction and tolerability profile. The studies utilizing buprenorphine transdermal patches in the treatment of opioid dependence are examined, while the potential of using such patches for maintenance treatment of opioid dependence is examined...

PURPOSE: The effectiveness of antipsychotic treatments in the acute phase of schizophrenia in actual clinical practice remains somewhat unclear. Therefore, the purpose of the present naturalistic, multi-center study conducted from 1 year starting in September 2017 was to examine the response rate to an initial or second antipsychotic in newly admitted patients with acute-phase schizophrenia, as well as the response rate and quality of augmentation with two antipsychotics in patients who failed to respond to both the initial and second antipsychotics...

Transcription factor 4 (TCF4) gene plays an important role in nervous system development and it always associated with the risk of schizophrenia. Since miRNAs regulate targetgenes by binding to 3'UTRs of target mRNAs, the functional variants located in 3'UTR of TCF4 are highly suggested to affect the gene expressions in schizophrenia. To test the hypothesis regarding the effects of the variants located in 3'UTR of TCF4, we conducted an in silico analysis to identify the functional variants and their predicted functions...

REVIEW
Fady Rachid
Major depressive disorder is a highly prevalent and profoundly disabling psychiatric disorder with significant morbidity and mortality and it is very often resistant to antidepressants, electroconvulsive therapy and psychotherapy. Therapeutic alternatives include repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation which may be an effective choice for treatment-resistant depression but requires prolonged treatments for at least four to six weeks. Shorter exposure to this technique might be more advantageous for certain cases...

BACKGROUND: Difficulties in parenting and Facial Emotion Recognition deficits (FERD) in persons with schizophrenia have been demonstrated independently. However, the relationship between parenting deficits and FERD in mothers with schizophrenia is yet to be explored. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aims of the study were to assess parenting in mothers with schizophrenia, to examine the clinical correlates of parenting and to examine if facial emotion recognition deficits had an association with parenting...

INTRODUCTION: Studies have shown the adverse impact of exposure to community violence on adolescent health. However, most of the studies were conducted in high-income countries. This study aimed at assessing the community violence exposure and the determinants of mental health problems among adolescents in Ambon, a post-conflict area in Indonesia. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional, school-based study involving 511 of 10th-graders from six randomly selected high schools in Kotamadya Ambon...

BACKGROUND: The Postpartum Bonding Questionnaire was developed in English for the purpose of screening for bonding disorders among postpartum mothers. There was a felt need for a Tamil translation of the self-rated instrument. METHODS: The Postpartum Bonding Questionnaire was translated into Tamil (PBQ-T). Two hundred and fifty mother-infant dyads were administered the PBQ-T along with the Stafford Interview. The Stafford Interview was studied by two independent psychiatrists to arrive at a diagnosis of bonding disorders in the mothers...

Internet Addiction Disorder is characterized by excessive or poorly controlled obsessions, cravings, or manners regarding Internet use that lead to real life conflicts. In this study assessed psychometric properties of Internet Addiction Scale in Urdu. Data were collected from 506 participants and were analyzed using SPSS v23. We found 4 factors which were named; salience, conflict, tolerance and mood modification. These factors showed strong correlation among them. Further the items in the factors are comparable to other studies...
