This study aimed to assess the construct validity of 2 new measures of the Reasons for Antipsychotic Discontinuation/Continuation (RAD): RAD-I (a structured interview assessing the patient's perspective) and(More)
Previous studies of autonomic nervous system (ANS) function in panic disorder (PD) patients have yielded conflicting results. We speculate that these differences might result from the variety of clinical stages of PD. In order to investigate this, we compared ANS activity in untreated patients in the early stage of PD with control subjects using power(More)
The antidepressive effect of an anticonvulsant clonazepam was studied with maximum daily dose of 1.5 to 6.0 mg (mean 3.4 mg) in 27 patients with major depression (n = 18) or bipolar disorder (n = 9). Two of them dropped out at an early stage of the treatment, and the antidepressive effect of clonazepam was evaluated for the remaining 25 patients. A marked(More)
Adherence and persistence with osteoporosis treatments are essential for reducing fracture risk. Once-daily teriparatide is available in Japan for treating osteoporosis in patients with a high risk of fracture. The study objective was to describe real-world adherence and persistence with once-daily teriparatide 20 μg during the first year of treatment for(More)
While prior research has provided important information about readmission rates following percutaneous coronary intervention, reports regarding charges and length of stay for readmission beyond 30 days post-discharge for patients in a large cohort are limited. The objective of this study was to characterize the rehospitalization of patients with acute(More)
We analyzed the medical records of nine patients with severe rapid cycling affective disorders (RCAD), and determined the cycle of mania occurrences by calculating the period between two successive onsets of mania for each patient. Using the cycle as the index we devised a cycle-oriented diagram by dividing the observation period by the index cycle, and(More)
BACKGROUND Osteoporosis, osteoporosis-related fractures, and diabetes are considerable health burdens in Japan. Diabetes in patients with osteoporosis has been reported to be associated with increased fracture risk. This retrospective analysis of a Japanese hospital claims database investigated the real-world effect of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) on the(More)
