Rapid Opiate Detoxification under Anesthesia (RODA) involves the use of opiate antagonists combined with anesthesia and pharmacotherapy to reduce withdrawal symptoms. The aim of our study was to measure the plasma concentrations of heroin metabolites and methadone during anesthesia and patient stay at the hospital in order to assess the amount of active substances at each protocol step. Plasma concentrations of antagonists were also quantified and compared to the recommended target values. Blood samples were drawn in 10 patients undergoing RODA at different times of the procedure (during anesthesia, in post-anesthesia care unit and in psychiatry unit). The plasma concentrations of heroin metabolites, methadone and antagonists were measured using a previously described method. Heroin active metabolites were no longer detected in the patient blood when he/she left the hospital; by contrast, methadone was still present at significant concentrations 3 days after the beginning of the detoxification procedure. Naltrexone analysis allowed us to adjust doses to insure opiate receptor blockade. [less ▲]

Introduction Perception of duration has a major impact on the child’s ability to manage everyday life. Usually, the perception of time is considered in its sequential component. To our knowledge, possible semiological markers for the capacity to apprehend temporal duration have not yet been explored. There are thus no existing tools either for its evaluation (in everyday life) or for the description of its development during childhood. We are thus largely in the dark about how the perception of duration develops during childhood. Hypothesis 1) It is possible to track perception of duration using semiological markers in everyday life; 2) Children with developmental disorders can be expected to develop difficulties in this domain. Method We designed a questionnaire for parents using a Likert scale. The questionnaire was administered to 2 samples from 2:6 to 13 years: 827 in a general population and 297 in a mixed-psychopathological population recruited from the Mental Health Services network. We carried out a multinomial logistic regression and used percentiles curves (P5,50,95). Results In the general population, perception of duration is gradually acquired and full competence is attained by 9 years. The apprehension of sequential time is achieved by 4 years. In the psychopathological sample, mean perception of temporal duration is delayed by 18 months and significant difficulties remain even at 13 years. The apprehension of sequential time is also delayed: even at 13 years it remains low (at percentile 95). We have found no sex-related differences. Discussion Perception of duration is an important developmental feature which has not been taken into account until now. Semiological markers can be used to differentiate typically developing children from clinical populations as to their respective capacities to perceive temporal duration. [less ▲]

The interest in sexual dysfunction induced by psychotropic drugs has increased considerably in recent years because of the new-generation antidepressants (AD) and antipsychotics (AP) being put into medical practice. These drugs are widely used to treat not only depression and schizophrenia, but also anxiety and affective disorders. Other, additional indications for the use of antidepressants are appetite disorders, premenstrual syndrome, chronic pain, etc. Neuroleptics are administered to treat resistant depressions, aggressiveness, impulsivity, and alcoholism. Impaired sexual functioning due to AD and AP lowers quality of life in patients and increases the risk of their refusing treatment, the result of which is a phenomenon associated with the occurrence of recurrent mental illnesses. There are few scientific data on the nature and prevalence of sexual dysfunctions induced by these medications. This topic is universally underestimated as it is rarely touched upon by specialists during their consultations. The aim of the review is to show the side effects of AP and AD on the sexual sphere, to compare different classes of the drugs, and to propose possible management strategies to correct these undesirable effects.

Bipolar disorder is a multifactorial disease with a strong genetic component. However, environmental factors also play a role in the onset of the disease and in manic and depressive recurrence. The onset of the disorder is the consequence of a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors. This gene-environment interaction is well illustrated by the influence of childhood trauma on the clinical expression of the disease in terms of age of onset, comorbidity and suicide. The complexity and heterogeneity of bipolar disorder require the identification of homogenous sub-groups with the use of biomarkers that could help reduce the etiological heterogeneity and better target the therapeutical options.

The last decades have demonstrated the value of early interventions after a traumatic event. The purpose of these interventions is to prevent the development of psychological consequences such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Psychological debriefing is clearly the most popular intervention. However, in the literature, it is subject to a real controversy. The objective of the present paper is to define the interest of psychological debriefing, but also alternative therapeutical strategies for people exposed to traumatic events. [less ▲]

Heroin-assisted treatment (HAT) is a solution for improving the condition of treatmentresistant heroin addicts. Since 1994, six randomized controlled trials have concluded that HAT is more efficacious than oral methadone for severe heroin addicts.We visited seven HAT treatment centres in four countries in order to observe diacetylmorphine (DAM) administration and to study the main concerns of the staff. Nurses were concerned by the risk taken if a previously intoxicated patient received his dose of DAM. Another concern was the smuggling of DAM doses. The HAT centres face a dilemma: treating patients while at the same time allowing their risky street habits in the centre. [less ▲]

Despite recent clinical and scientific developments in the psychogeriatric field, depression in old age remains an underdiagnosed and undertreated disorder. However, depressive symptoms are frequent in older people and the impact on patients, their family and the society is very important. Depression is also frequently associated with somatic illnesses, with alcoholism, anxiety and a significant risk of suicide. In this context, a systematic screening of depression and an adequate treatment are a priority. [less ▲]

The article identifies the focus of interest in semiological studies, presents concepts related to semiology, and proposes a refinement of semiological research by means of an “epidemiological approach to the study of developmental semiology”. The article begins by sketching the history of developmental psychopathology. Next, it addresses its theoretical foundations, which hitherto have focused primarily on the semiological study of individual childhood development insofar as it is liable to a maladjustment of one sort or another. Now, in our view, the study of development involves two further challenges. On the one hand, it is necessary to disentangle the semiological elements initially observed as part of a total phenomenon. Meeting this challenge requires the creation of new semiological concepts in order to account of our observations. On the other hand, we need to elaborate epigenetic models for the origin of developmental pathways, models that take account of the multiple, continuously interacting factors that characterize such pathways. With these two desiderata in mind, we proceed to the third stage of our exposition, which presents our own approach to semiology. This approach includes the following distinctive features: comparison with normal populations, establishment of a continuum between normal and pathological development, integration of the dimensional and categorical aspects, and attention to the variation of semiological expression during development. This sets the stage for the concluding part of the article, in which we outline a program of semiological research in order to illustrate what we mean by an “epidemiological approach to the study of developmental semiology”.

A new heroin-assisted treatment, TADAM, has begun in Liège, Belgium. With the number of methadone patients (n=2046) in 2007, we estimated the geographical distribution of methadone treatments in the province of Liège, of heroin addicts and of potential participants for TADAM. The methadone treatments were unequally distributed. Some urban areas showed a signifi cant number of heroin addicts: more than 14/1000 of the population aged 15-64. As a conclusion, the trial is appropriately targeted to those high-density addiction areas. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to document the outcome dimensions that physicians see as important in defining cure from depression. The study also aimed to analyse physicians' attitudes about depression and to find out whether they affect their prescribing practices and/or the outcome dimensions that they view as important in defining cure. METHODS: A 51-item questionnaire based on six validated scales was used to rate the importance of several depression outcome dimensions. Physicians' attitudes about depression were also assessed using the Depression Attitude Scale. Overall, 369 Belgian physicians (264 general practitioners [GPs]; 105 psychiatrists) participated in the DEsCRIBE survey. RESULTS: GPs and psychiatrists strongly agreed that functioning and depressive symptomatology were most important in defining cure; anxious and somatic symptomatology was least important. GPs and psychiatrists differed in their attitudes about depression (p <0.001). Logistic regression revealed that the attitudes of GPs - but not psychiatrists - were significantly associated with their rates of antidepressant prescription (p < 0.001) and that certain attitudes predicted which outcome dimensions were seen as important in defining cure. CONCLUSIONS: Belgian GPs and psychiatrists strongly agreed on which criteria were important in defining cure from depression but differed in their attitudes about depression. The outcome dimensions that were considered important in defining cure were influenced by physicians' attitudes - this was more pronounced in GPs than in psychiatrists. [less ▲]
