We conducted genome-wide association analyses in 1578 European Americans (EAs), including 300 PTSD cases, and 2766 African Americans, including 444 PTSD cases, to find novel common risk alleles for PTSD. We used the Illumina Omni1-Quad microarray, which yielded approximately 870,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) suitable for analysis.
This meta-analysis aimed to estimate the mean prevalence of current MDD co-occurrence among individuals with PTSD and examine potential moderating variables (U.S. nationality, gender, trauma type, military service, referral type) that may influence the rate of PTSD and MDD co-occurrence.
Community-based social workers need to be familiar with the needs of this growing population to serve them effectively. Use of empirically supported assessment instruments and screening for military sexual trauma are recommended.
Diffusion tensor imaging evidence of brain disruption associated with loss versus alteration of consciousness in combat veterans
The objective of this study was to examine the effects of LOC, MDD, and PTSD on white matter integrity in individuals who reported experiencing mTBI during combat in Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.
Objective We explore preliminary clinical effectiveness and feasibility of an intervention utilizing collaborative care components and behavioral activation (BA) to treat comorbid chronic pain and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
In this review we have analyzed the state of the art of GH administration in several neural diseases.
Role of Optical Coherence Tomography Raster Imaging as a Valuable Diagnostic Tool in the Differential Between Optic Disc Hemorrhage and Vitreopapillary Traction
This article highlights the use of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) 5 line raster (5LR) in differentiating true optic disc hemorrhages from those as a result of tractional forces.
To describe the experience of internal qigong practice in service members diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
Influence of Trauma Exposure and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Severity on Intimate Partner Aggression
This study investigated the association of cumulative TBIs with suicide risk in a clinical sample of deployed military personnel referred for a TBI evaluation.
Objective: To determine whether suicide risk is more frequent and heightened among military personnel with multiple lifetime TBIs than among those with no TBIs or a single TBI.
