The aim of this work was to investigate if sex, age, family history, season and hypothyroidism have any influence on the type of episodes (manic, depressive, mixed) seen in bipolar patients. This retrospective study concerns a sample of 208 patients with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder (type I or II), who were admitted in one of two psychiatric centers between July 1996 and June 2000. The sex-ratio was 2.8 females for 1 male. Sex, family history and hypothyroidism were not associated with any type of episode. A higher percentage of depressive episodes was observed in the patients who were older than 50 and the average age of depressive patients was higher than that of other patients. There was no seasonal pattern in this study and the season did not influence the type of episode. The results indicate no influence of sex, season, family history and hypothyroidism on the type of episode presented. On the opposite, age seems to favour depression episode. [less ▲]

Validated the results of a previous analysis of 337 Association for Methodology and Documentation in Psychiatry (AMDP)-V system Ss and 388 AMDP-IV system Ss with a sample of 493 Ss. The factorial structure of the French version of the AMDP has 10 psychopathological factors (AMDP-IV) and 3 somatic factors (AMDP-V) independent of the psychopathological factors. 23 rare or inestimable items were found, including neologisms, certain types of hallucinations, self-mutilations, sexual deviations, allergic reactions, tardive dyskinesias, hypersalivation, hypotonia, ataxia, and nystagmus. Minor modifications to the syndromic scale of the AMDP are proposed to standardize its factorial structure, to avoid misunderstandings, and to improve international comprehension of AMDP terminology.

Investigated the influence of methodological conditions (i.e., time-blind evaluation, chronological vs random order, and suppression of the time gap between evaluations) on the objectivity and sensibility of quantitative evaluation of psychopathology. Different evaluations of videotaped interviews did not demonstrate systematic effects of these temporal conditions. It is suggested that other variables (monotony, order of sequences, verbal inertia, contingencies) may play a greater role. Within the methodological limits of the present study, the time-blind evaluation was the most sensitive [less ▲]

The authors have elaborated a micro-computerized program which enables --on the basis of the Psychopathology Form (plus optionally the Somatic Form) of the AMDP-System and of an open-language diagnosis and treatment --to print out instantly a semi-standardized letter and a syndromic profile of 10 or 13 factors. This realization is favorably acknowledged by general practitioners and medical inspectors thanks to its speed of transmission, to its brevity and to the clarity of the syndromic reduction of the clinical picture. Other advantages lie in the greater validity of factor scores as compared to items scores, the standardization and readability of the clinical files, and the extension of the AMDP data bank.
