Associations of Biological Psychiatry with chemical compounds

  • Cooperation between researchers in biological psychiatry and nephrologists has resulted in the suggestion that lithium may be used as an indicator of proximal sodium and water reabsorption, which has later led to the suggestion that the renal lithium clearance is an indicator of proximal renal tubular function [7].
  • Comments on "can stress cause depression?" b H.M. van Praag. Progress in Neuro-psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry 28, 2004, 891-907 [8].
  • Pharmacological challenge with fenfluramine may prove to be a useful tool for the investigation of serotonergic mechanisms in biological psychiatry [9].

Gene context of Biological Psychiatry

  • A previous study has shown an association between the *2236T > C allele polymorphism of the dihydropyrimidinase-related protein 2 (DRP-2) gene and schizophrenia in a Japanese sample [Nakata et al. (2003); Biological Psychiatry 53:571-576] [10].
  • The finding of a diminished TSH response to exogenously administered TRH in a significant proportion of depressed patients has now been established as one of the most reproducible findings in biological psychiatry [11].
  • The 5HT transporter complex in platelets is similar to that in the brain and thus widely used in biological psychiatry as a peripheral marker of the 5HT system [12].
  • Perspectives in biological psychiatry. Part 3: schizophrenia and organic brain syndrome [13].
  • The increasing knowledge in this area facilitates the physiological interpretation of P300 findings as well as the link between P300 research and other research findings in biological psychiatry [14].
