Today we will be touching upon associatation between physical activity and depression, prevention and treatment of addiction, long term effects of antidepressants, effect of pharmacogenetic testing tools on depression treatment and more!

1) Physical Activity and Incident Depression: A Meta-Analysis of Prospective Cohort Studies

Available evidence supports the notion that physical activity can confer protection against the emergence of depression regardless of age and geographical region.

2) Neuroscience of Addiction: Relevance to Prevention and Treatment

Addiction, the most severe form of substance use disorder, is a chronic brain disorder molded by strong biosocial factors that has devastating consequences to individuals and to society.

3) Anxiety About Antidepressants

With the rise of large-scale electronic health records, health registries, and biobanks, we are better positioned than ever before to investigate long-term effects of antidepressants on health.

4) Clinical Implementation of Pharmacogenetic Decision Support Tools for Antidepressant Drug Prescribing

At present, there are insufficient data to support the widespread use of combinatorial pharmacogenetic testing in clinical practice, although there are clinical situations in which the technology may be informative, particularly in predicting side effects.

5) Fracture Type Varies for Women With Anorexia and Oligo-Amenorrheic Athletes

Women with anorexia nervosa (AN) and oligo-amenorrheic athletes (OA) have been reported to have low bone mineral density (BMD) and an increased fracture risk. But when the 2 groups were compared, the prevalence of stress fracture was highest in OA, and nonstress fracture was greater in AN, according to new findings.
