A literature search, in addition to expert survey, was performed to estimate the size and burden of panic disorder in the European Union (EU). Epidemiologic data from EU countries were critically reviewed to determine the consistency of prevalence estimates across studies and to identify the most pressing questions for future research. A comprehensive literature search focusing on epidemiological studies in community and clinical settings in European countries since 1980 was conducted (Medline… Expand
Panic disorder and subthreshold panic in the UK general population: Epidemiology, comorbidity and functional limitation
TLDR
The findings show that efforts to reduce the disability associated with psychiatric disorders should include detection and management of panic disorder, and that panic-related conditions are important public health problems, even in subthreshold status. Expand
Size and burden of mental disorders in Europe—a critical review and appraisal of 27 studies
TLDR
Epidemiological data on a wide range of mental disorders from community studies conducted in European countries are presented to determine the availability and consistency of prevalence, disability and treatment findings for the EU, highlighting considerable future research needs for coordinated EU studies across all disorders and age groups. Expand
Panic Disorder and Personality Disorder Comorbidity
TLDR
Comorbidity between panic disorder and personality disorders is common, and Cluster C was the most frequent personality disorder subtype related to panic disorder. Expand
The Burden of Agoraphobia in Worsening Quality of Life in a Community Survey in Italy
TLDR
The attributable burden in terms of HR-QoL is substantial and comparable to the one observed for chronic mental disorders such as major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Expand
The 2-year prognosis of panic episodes in the general population
TLDR
The results suggest that the course of panic is diverse in the general population, thereby underlining the need for accurate predictors and given the large proportion with a relapse, relapse prevention should be part of any treatment programme. Expand
Longitudinal course of panic disorder with and without agoraphobia using the national epidemiologic survey on alcohol and related conditions (NESARC)
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the relapsing-remitting nature of PD and PDA and take caution to not reduce or eliminate effective treatments prematurely, and pay particular attention to concurrent factors relevant to relapse in PD/PDA that may also be clinically addressed. Expand

TLDR
The prevalence of panic disorder decreased with age among older adults, and was significantly lower among widowed respondents and in multivariate models. Expand
The prevalence and burden of subthreshold generalized anxiety disorder: a systematic review
TLDR
Subthreshold GAD is a common, recurrent and impairing disease with verifiable morbidity that claims significant healthcare resources and should receive additional research and clinical attention. Expand
