OUR REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE SUGGESTSTHAT HYPNOSIS IS AN USEFUL OPTION lN THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN.THE EXPLANATIONS FOR ITS EFFECTIVENESS RELIE MAINLY ON THE FINDINGS OF FUNCTIONAL NEUROIMAGING, CLINICAL STUDIES AND EMPIRICAL OBSERVATIONS. THESE DATA SHOWTHAT THROUGH THE DIVERSITY OF ITS EFFECTS, HYPNOSIS CAN MODULATE THE BIO-PSYCHO-SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF CHRONIC PAIN. THE CHOICE OF THIS THERAPEUTIC TECHNIQUE SHOULD BE GUIDED BY THE ESTIMATE OF ITS USEFULNESS. THE EFFICACY IS ASSESSED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE BENEFITS AND LIMITATIONS OF HYPNOSIS FOR EACH PATIENT. [less ▲]

Zolpidem is an imidazopiridine with hypnotic properties. Compared to benzodiazepines, zolpidem has a mechanism of action that is thought to reduce the risk of dependence or abuse. However, in the past 10 years, several cases of zolpidem abuse, dependence and withdrawal reactions have been described in the litterature. Here, we describe a case of dependence and withdrawal seizure. [less ▲]

Cloninger's type II is a severe, early-onset, male-limited, and genetically influenced, impulsive form of alcoholism. Significant association has been reported between the A1 allele of the D2 dopamine receptor (DRD2) gene, substance misuse and personality traits of impulsivity and novelty seeking. We assessed the association between the TaqI A DRD2 gene polymorphism with Cloninger's typology and family history of alcohol abuse, which is thought to be more frequent in type II alcoholics. Fifty-one male alcohol-dependent patients were discriminated between type I and type II according to age at onset of alcohol-related problems and interviewed about family history of alcoholism. The associations between DRD2 (A1 or A2 alleles), family history, and typology were assessed by Pearson's chi-square test. Although typology was not associated with the studied polymorphism, a higher rate of general family history of alcohol abuse was still observed in type II patients (chi(2)(1)=4.53; P=.033). Furthermore, the A1 allele of the DRD2 was significantly associated with paternal history of alcoholism (chi(2)(1)=4.66; P=.031) and male, first-degree, collateral history of alcoholism (chi(2)(1)=4.40; P=.036). Age at onset of alcohol-related problems as main discriminator between type I and type II alcohol dependence does not seem to be associated by the TaqI A DRD2 polymorphism. However, the A1 allele of the DRD2 may be a marker of male familial alcoholism, which has been associated with type II alcohol dependence. [less ▲]

The purpose of the present study was to assess if AVP-neurophysin is associated with hypercortisolemia and suicidal behaviour in depressed patients. The study included 28 patients subgrouped into suicide attempters (n=13) and nonattempters (n=15). We assessed basal AVP-neurophysins concentrations and post-dexamethasone (DST) cortisol levels. Concentrations of AVP-neurophysins did not differ between DST suppressors and nonsuppressors: 0.29+/-0.13ng/ml vs 0.36+/-0.21ng/ml, (F=1.1, df=1, 27, p=0.30). Suicide attempters did not differ from nonattempters for AVP-neurophysins levels. Our results fail to support a role of AVP in the early cortisol escape. [less ▲]

Cerebrospinal fluid and plasmatic levels of oxytocin (OT) have been found to change in mood disorders. In post-mortem studies, the numbers of OT-expressing neurons in the paraventricular nucleus have been reported to be increased. Moreover, OT is considered as an endogenous antistress hormone. It has also revealed antidepressive effects. OT may contribute to the dysregulation of the HPA system in major depression. The aim of the study was to assess a possible relationship between anxiety and plasma oxytocin (OT) Levels in depressive patients. Severity of depression was estimated with the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale and anxiety by using the Spielberger State-Anxiety Inventory. Results showed a significant negative correlation between oxytocin and the scored symptoms depression (r = -0.58, p = 0.003) and anxiety (r = -0.61, p = 0.005). (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
