The Kraepelinian classification of psychiatric disorders, in particular the dichotomy of dementia praecox and manic-depressive psychosis is under discussion since a long time. In recent years, not only new research in the fields of psychopathology and clinical outcome, but also findings of biological markers in the areas of neurophysiology, neuroendocrinology, psychoneuroimmunology, genetics, or psychopharmacology show a big overlap between both groups of disorders. This overlap of symptoms and… 

Figures from this paper

[Glutamatergic conception of mood disorders].
TLDR
Glutamatergic conception of mood disorders allows for a new look on the pathogenesis and treatment of unipolar and bipolar affective illness, and a role in the mechanism of action of antidepressant and mood-stabilizing drugs as well as therapeutic activity of drugs modifying glutamatergent system is reviewed.
The Historical Development of Immunoendocrine Concepts of Psychiatric Disorders and Their Therapy
Relationships between the central nervous, immune and endocrine systems are a focus of psychiatric research, particularly in depression and schizophrenia. The field has long antecedents. Observed
Psychoneuroimmunology of Schizophrenia
TLDR
The elucidation of these pathways is critical in psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) research as the common inflammatory networks may be involved in the pathological mechanisms of both depression and schizophrenia.
Effects of Electroconvulsive Therapy on Some Inflammatory Factors in Patients With Treatment-Resistant Schizophrenia
TLDR
Electroconvulsive therapy, while increasing the anti-inflammatory response such as the levels of IL-4 and TGF-&bgr;, it did not affect the Levels of MPO and NF-&kgr;B activation in this study.
Inflammation-associated depression: From serotonin to kynurenine
[Schizophrenic disorders. The development of immunological concepts and therapy in psychiatry].
TLDR
The article exemplarily presents publications of the psychiatrists such as Julius Wagner von Jauregg, Lewis Campbell Bruce and Friedrich Ostmann as well as neuropathologist Hermann Lehmann-Facius and haematologist William Dameshek.
Neuroinflammation in Schizophrenia-Related Psychosis: A PET Study
TLDR
The present study suggests that focal neuroinflammation may play an important role in schizophrenia during psychosis.
Is there a role for the nuclear receptor PPARγ in neuropsychiatric diseases?
TLDR
The role and relevance of inflammatory related lipids (prostanoids) derived from arachidonic acid metabolism are explored by identification of new inflammatory markers and possible pharmacological/dietary modulation of these compounds, with the aim of improving some of the symptoms developed by individuals affected with psychiatric diseases.

The immunological basis of glutamatergic disturbance in schizophrenia: towards an integrated view.
TLDR
The immune-mediated glutamatergic-dopaminergic dysregulation may lead to the clinical symptoms of schizophrenia and the use of antiinflammatory cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, which also are able to directly decrease KYN-A, are discussed.
Fundamentals of Psychoneuroimmunology
TLDR
This chapter discusses the role of the Thymus Gland in Psychoneuroimmunology, animal models of Stress and Psychiatric Disease, and the Effects of Drugs of Abuse on the Immune System.
Cytokines and major depression
T-helper-1 and T-helper-2 Responses in Psychiatric Disorders
TLDR
This article systematically describes alterations of Th1- or Th2-specific parameters in the major psychiatric disorders schizophrenia, major depression, and Alzheimer's disease and hints of associations of these two distinct arms of immune response with subgroups of schizophrenia and major depression.

TLDR
If psychiatry is to translate the opportunities offered by new research methodologies, it must move to a classificatory approach that is worthy of the 21st century, both immediately and for DSM-V and ICD-11.
SOME BIOCHEMICAL STUDIES ON PSILOCYBIN AND PSILOCIN
TLDR
It is suggested that RT may provide a sensitive behavioral measure of relatively early central nervous system involvement in HIV-infected individuals and that QUIN may play an important role in the pathogenesis of HIV-related neurological dysfunction.
Beyond Monoamines: Glutamatergic Function in Mood Disorders
TLDR
A hypothetical model of altered glutamatergic function in mood disorders is proposed in conjunction with potential antidepressant mechanisms of antiglutamater gic agents, likely to provide new targets for the development of novel antidepressant agents.

Quinolinic acid and kynurenine pathway metabolism in inflammatory and non-inflammatory neurological disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that inflammatory diseases are associated with accumulation of QUIN, kynurenic acid and L-kynurenine within the central nervous system, but that the available data do not support a role for QUIN in the aetiology of Huntington's disease or Alzheimer's disease.

TLDR
Whatever the specific nature of their physiological roles, the presence of an endogenous selective agonist and antagonist acting at NMDA receptors must continue to present exciting possibilities for understanding the pathological basis of several CNS disorders as well as developing new therapeutic approaches.
