BACKGROUND Internet interventions for depression have shown less than optimal adherence. This study describes the feasibility trial of a multimodal e-mental health intervention designed to enhance adherence and outcomes for depression. The intervention required frequent brief log-ins for self-monitoring and feedback as well as email and brief telephone(More)
The case is presented of an elderly patient who had dementia, axial rigidity, and bradykinesia with limitation of horizontal and vertical gaze. Pathological examination disclosed Lewy and Lewy-like bodies in the substantia nigra, locus ceruleus, and neocortex, leading to a final diagnosis of diffuse Lewy body disease. Similar inclusions were found in areas(More)
A connection between pineal function and several psychiatric diseases has been shown recently. The diurnal and seasonal rhythmicity of melatonin production is associated with affective disorders and several types of endogenous depression. The cortisolmelatonin ratio was significantly higher in depressed individuals than in healthy controls. Alterations in(More)
In bacteria, laterally acquired genes are often concentrated within chromosomal regions known as genomic islands. Using a recently developed zebrafish infection model, we set out to identify unique factors encoded within genomic islands that contribute to the fitness and virulence of a reference urosepsis isolate-extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli(More)
Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) is a non-canonical, mostly cytosolic histone deacetylase that has a variety of interacting partners and substrates. Previous work using cell-culture based assays coupled with pharmacological inhibitors and gene-silencing approaches indicated that HDAC6 promotes the actin- and microtubule-dependent invasion of host cells by(More)
A diagnosis of definite Alzheimer disease (AD) is made when there is a history of progressive dementia combined with the pathologic findings of numerous senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in neocortex. Recent studies have shown, however, that there may be significant interrater variability in the quantitation of these histopathologic lesions. In the(More)
