Mild hypomania (the highs) can be a feature of the first postpartum week. Association with later depression.
TLDR
It is suggested that the 'highs' followed by depression may be a mild and common form of bipolar disorder. Expand
Links between early post-partum mood and post-natal depression.
The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) was used to rate 217 patients at five days and six weeks post-partum. There was a highly significant positive correlation between the two scores,Expand
A benzylamine oxidase distinct from monoamine oxidase B--widespread distribution in man and rat.
TLDR
In the rat, phenylethylamine and dopamine are both substrates for a deprenyl-resistant enzyme with a distribution similar to BzAO, but in man these amines are solely oxidized by MAO, and Semicarbazide, procarbazine and carbidopa are potent inhibitors of BzO and inhibit it selectively, leaving MAO substantially unaffected. Expand
Dopamine is a monoamine oxidase B substrate in man
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, as far as DA oxidation is concerned, man may be different from rat: in two sites the authors have investigated, platelet and brain, DA is preferentially deaminated by an enzyme with the characteristics of MAOB. Expand
Anxiolytic Activity of Intraventricularly Administered Atrial Natriuretic Peptide in the Rat
TLDR
The data indicate that ANP may function as an endogenous anximodulator, which may act in conjunction with isatin independently of benzodiazepine receptors, and strengthen the evidence for links between physiological systems involved in anxiety and those in natriuresis. Expand
Human platelet monoamine oxidase activity in health and disease: a review.
The most readily available source of monoamine oxidase in man is the platelet, although only the B form of the enzyme is represented in this site. Platelet activity is higher in women than in men.Expand
Links between early post-partum mood and post-natal depression.
TLDR
A recollection of low mood after a previous birth was also associated with post-natal depression after the current birth, and this, together with an EPDS score of 13 or more at five days post-partum, increased the risk of post- newborn depression at six weeks 85-fold. Expand
Dietary Migraine: Recent Progress in the Red (And White) Wine Story
TLDR
Red wine, in particular, is commonly alleged to initiate attacks in susceptible individuals and it is discussed how some of its recently described pharmacological properties might trigger off the sequence of events leading to migrainous headache. Expand
Prostaglandin secretion by medullary carcinoma of the thyroid. A possible cause of the associated idarrhoea.
Abstract Appreciable amounts of prostaglandins were present in tumour tissue from 4 out of 7 cases of medullary carcinoma of the thyroid. Raised blood-levels were detected in 2; concentrations wereExpand
