Association of First- vs. Second-Generation Antipsychotics with Lipid Abnormalities in Individuals with Severe Mental Illness: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Determining the comparative risk of second-generation vs. first-generation antipsychotic drugs as a group of antipsychotics for lipid dysregulation may be of limited clinical utility, as drugs from either group have the potential to cause such adversity to varying degrees. Expand
Evaluation of Different Approaches for Confounding in Nonrandomised Observational Data: A Case-Study of Antipsychotics Treatment
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the propensity score, a predicted probability, has an important balancing property that underscores its value in strengthening the results of nonrandomised observational studies. Expand
Concordance between measured and self-perceived weight status of persons with serious mental illness.
TLDR
People with serious mental illness are more likely than others to have weight problems, which contribute to higher rates of morbidity and mortality, however, they also tend to underestimate their weight. Expand
Association between HTR2C gene polymorphisms and the metabolic syndrome in patients using antipsychotics: a replication study
TLDR
This study confirms previous findings that the variant C-allele of the rs1414334 polymorphism is associated with the metabolic syndrome, and identifies two polymorphisms in the HTR2C gene that are associated with this syndrome. Expand
De associatie tussen HTR2C-polymorfismen en de prevalentie van het metabool syndroom bij patiënten die antipsychotica gebruiken: Een replicatiestudie
TLDR
This study confirms previous findings that the variant C-allele of the rs1414334 polymorphism is associated with the metabolic syndrome. Expand
Frequency of abnormal correlation between leptin and the body mass index during first and second generation antipsychotic drug treatment
TLDR
Longitudinal studies should focus on leptin regulation early on treatment, on the frequency of abnormal leptin receptor sensitivity and/or specific polymorphisms in the leptin allele and on several confounding factors in order to design personalized preventive and therapeutic measures. Expand
