Rapid-cycling bipolar disorder represents a frequent severe subtype of illness which has been associated with poor response to pharmacological treatment. Aim of the present article is to provide an updated review of biological markers associated with rapid-cycling bipolar disorder. A research in the main database sources has been conducted to identify relevant papers about the topic. Rapid-cycling bipolar disorder patients seem to have a more frequent family history for bipolar spectrum… Expand
Clinical characterization of rapid cycling bipolar disorder: Association with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Clinical characteristics associated to RC in a Latin-American sample and a clinical model generated suggest that ADHD comorbidity, and female gender are risk factors for RC in BD. Expand
A miRNome analysis of drug-free manic psychotic bipolar patients versus healthy controls
TLDR
A signature of circulating miRNA characteristic of manic psychotic bipolar patients is identified, suggesting a possible role in neurodevelopment and metabolic processes regulation. Expand
Malondialdehyde and bipolar disorder: A short comprehensive review of available literature.
TLDR
The hypothesis that MDA may be a promising and potential biomarker to monitor the course of BD is supported, although further studies are needed to confirm this hypothesis. Expand
Correlates of current rapid-cycling bipolar disorder: Results from the Italian multicentric RENDiBi study
TLDR
RC in BD seems to be more prevalent in female gender and associated with some unfavorable clinical features, such as an increased risk of hospitalization, which should be taken in the management and monitoring of RC versus non-RC patients. Expand
Obstetric complications and subsequent risk of mood disorders for offspring in adulthood: a comprehensive overview
TLDR
The most robust evidence is that low birth weight (LBW) and preterm birth may be risk factors for the development of MDD in the future, even if some of the available data come from studies with small sample sizes or a retrospective design. Expand
Current challenges and possible future developments in personalized psychiatry with an emphasis on psychotic disorders
TLDR
This review describes current difficulties in the field of personalized psychiatry and gives several examples of possibly actionable biomarkers of psychotic and other psychiatric disorders, including several example of genetic studies relevant to personalized psychiatry. Expand
DISEASE-MODIFYING EFFECTS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS AND BIPOLAR DISORDER COMORBIDITY
TLDR
A review of the risks and care issues associated with poorly managed type 2 diabetes mellitus, in relation to poor prognosis of bipolar disorder, found association of with the severity of the bipolar disorder. Expand
The use of triiodothyronine (T3) in the treatment of bipolar depression: A review of the literature.
TLDR
Many clues are found suggesting that T3 could augment and accelerate treatment response not only with antidepressants, but also with lithium and perhaps with other treatment options, that it might protect against rapid cycling bipolar disorder, as well as against relapse during the first few years of treatment. Expand
Quetiapine-Induced Hypomania and its Association with Quetiapine/Norquetiapine Plasma Concentrations: A Case Series of Bipolar Type 2 Patients
TLDR
A ratio value <1 is proposed as a predictor of risk for a switch to hypomania in bipolar depressed subjects receiving quetiapine extended-release monotherapy and future research should ascertain the validity of this laboratory parameter to assess the risk of quet iapine-induced hypomanic in large samples of bipolar patients. Expand
The Association Between Personality Traits and Dietary Choices: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
Several studies showed that personality traits can influence both dietary choices and the type of diet, including the preference for healthy or unhealthy food, and personality seems to play a role in food selection and the propensity to change diet. Expand

Rapid cycling bipolar disorder--diagnostic concepts.
TLDR
The evidence does not exist today to refine the DSM-IV definition of rapid cycling in bipolar disorder, so a dimensional approach to episode frequency as a continuum between the extremes of no cycling and continuous cycling may be more appropriate. Expand
Rapid cycling in bipolar disorder: a systematic review.
TLDR
The literature suggests that rapid cycling affects a significant proportion of bipolar patients and is related to a longer course of illness, an earlier age at onset, and more illegal drug and alcohol abuse and increased suicidality. Expand
Rapid cycling bipolar disorder: biology and pathogenesis.
TLDR
Despite the absence of firm empirical data, the possible contribution of the kindling phenomenon on the acceleration of cycles cannot be excluded and there is evidence that RC can be induced by the use of antidepressant drugs, especially for women. Expand
A family history study of rapid-cycling bipolar disorder
TLDR
Family History Research Diagnostic Criteria (FH-RDC) diagnoses were demonstrated to agree reasonably well with best-estimate diagnoses by two psychiatrists/psychologists, based on direct interviews with the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R. Expand
Current research on rapid cycling bipolar disorder and its treatment.
TLDR
Clinical considerations suggest that discontinuing antidepressants may facilitate the recovery process and among clinically available monotherapies, valproate and lamotrigine appear to be the most useful clinically. Expand
Psychiatric and clinical correlates of rapid cycling bipolar disorder: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
Rapid cycling patients had earlier age at onset, longer duration of disease, more lifetime depressive and manic episodes, higher number of suicide attempts, and higher rate antidepressant use. Expand
Rapid switching of mood in families with multiple cases of bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Rapid switching of mood seems to be the core phenomenon behind several variants of non-DSM-IV rapid cycling, DSM-III-R mixed states, and borderline personality disorder and the link connecting comorbidity, suicide, and early onset of bipolar disorder. Expand
Rapid cycling bipolar affective disorder. I. Association with grade I hypothyroidism.
TLDR
It is indicated that hypothyroidism during bipolar illness is a risk factor for the development of rapid cycling and leads to the hypothesis that a relative central thyroid hormone deficit occurring in bipolar patients predisposes to a rapid cycling course. Expand
P2RX7: Expression Responds to Sleep Deprivation and Associates with Rapid Cycling in Bipolar Disorder Type 1
TLDR
Sleep deprivation increased P2RX7 expression in healthy persons and the putatively low-activity P2 RX7 rs2230912 allele A variant was associated with rapid cycling in bipolar disorder, in agreement with that particularly rapid cycling patients have a more vulnerable diurnal system. Expand
Thyroid abnormalities associated with rapid-cycling bipolar illness.
TLDR
Abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis appear to interact with a predisposition to bipolar illness to produce rapid-cycling, and these overt and covert abnormalities may help explain the reported efficacy of thyroid in treating "periodic catatonia" and rapid-Cycling. Expand
