Home Health Wellness Wellness oi-Lekhaka By Lekhaka on December 5, 2016 Survivors of cancer diagnosed before the age of 25 may be at more than two-fold increased risk of suicide compared to their non-cancer peers, a new study has found. The study showed that the risk of suicide is more prevalent in survivors of brain tumours, leukaemia, bone and soft tissue sarcomas and testicular cancer. However, "it is not possible to say whether there is a connection between the cancer diagnosis and suicide on an individual level, but what we see is an association at population level," said Maria Winther Gunnes, researcher and medical doctor at University of Bergen (UiB) in Norway.

A team of scientists from several universities in England investigated the effectiveness of modafinil as a supplemental therapy for depression in patients with two forms of depression: major depressive disorder and bi-polar depression. Researchers examined the results of already completed studies that had included modafinil as a supplemental treatment for depression, used in conjunction with anti-depressant medication. They ultimately evaluated data from 6 clinical trials that included a total of 910 patients, including 568 with major depressive disorder and 342 with bi-polar depression. Their analysis revealed that patients who took modafinil in addition to anti-depressants were more likely to experience significant improvements to their depression, and more likely to enter remission. This was true for both major depressive disorder and for bi-polar depression. In addition to lessening the severity of depression and increasing rates of remission, the use of modafinil also resulted in … [Read more...] about Narcolepsy Drug Shows Promise in Depression Treatment
