Abstract: Summary Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) not only have increased risk of hypothyroidism, they also tend to develop a relatively novel mild form of neonatal hypothyroidism. One problem that may predispose those with trisomy 21 to hypothyroidism is the overexpression of the gene

DYRK1A, which may have an affect on the thyroid. While thyroxine supplementation (such as Synthroid) is increasingly being advised for those with DS, this treatment may have both positive and negative effects. Nutritional support for hypothyroidism offers some of the same benefits as drug therapy but without the likely negative long-term effects. Early 20th century practitioners used bovine glandulars for those with DS children, which were believed to help support thyroid function. Some doctors in more recent times have also included iodine, l-tyrosine, selenium, and zinc. As nutrition for those with DS has been safely used by some practitioners for many decades, it is suggested that nutritional thyroid support, and not necessarily thyroxine, should be considered for use as a first line treatment for those with trisomy 21. This paper also hypothesizes that nutritional interventions begun prenatally by the mother, may possibly also be of benefit. R. Bouillon, Thyroid hormones, iodine and antithyroid drugs, In: M.N.G.

Abstract: Intrathecal adenosine reduces allodynia from intradermal capsaicin in human volunteers, and reduces hypersensitivity to mechanical stimuli in animals with nerve injury. Although both intrathecal and intravenous adenosine have been reported to relieve pain in patients with neuropathic pain, there are no controlled trials of this therapy. In order to determine the effect of adenosine, seven patients with chronic neuropathic pain and stable areas of mechanical hyperalgesia and

allodynia were recruited. Using a double-blind, cross-over design, patients were studied on two occasions – once with intrathecal adenosine, 2 mg and once with intravenous adenosine, 2 mg, using saline by the alternate route. Areas of hyperalgesia and allodynia and pain from von Frey stimulation in the area of allodynia were determined up to 24 h after drug injection. Intrathecal, but not intravenous adenosine reduced area of allodynia by approximately 25% (P<0.05) from 2 to 24 h after injection. Intrathecal adenosine reduced pain from von Frey filament stimulation in the area of allodynia by approximately 20% (P<0.05). Ongoing pain was unaffected by adenosine by either route. Intrathecal, but not intravenous adenosine, caused backache in five of seven patients, lasting 6 h. These results indicate that intrathecal adenosine reduces allodynia and pain from stimulation in the area of allodynia, whereas the same dose of adenosine intravenously was ineffective. Given the modest effect and common side effects, the role for intrathecal adenosine as a sole agent for the treatment of neuropathic pain may be limited.

Bowers Jr., Lithium treatment in a very elderly nursing home population, Comprehensive Psychiatry, Volume 24, Issue 4, July-August 1983, Pages 392-396, ISSN 0010-440X, 10.1016/0010-440X(83)90066-4. Abstract: We studied the result of long-term lithium therapy in 12 very elderly nursing home residents. Good treatment results occurred most often when the diagnosis was bipolar disorder-manic or manic episode. Many of the side effects encountered were well known (tremor, ataxia, lethargy, disorientation, and hypothyroidism) and were easily reversible. The development of significant sinus bradycardia in 25% of the group raised a question concerning lithium-induced cardiotoxicity. Nephrotoxicity was not apparent in spite of very advanced age and long duration of therapy. We conclude that the question of cardiotoxicity is important and requires further study. Other side effects were not sufficiently serious to contraindicate the use of lithium therapy in appropriately selected and well-monitored elderly patients. Timothy E. Knight, Craig Y.

Abstract: The most serious side effect of ketoconazole is hepatitis, which has proved fatal in seven reported cases. We present a case of fuhninant hepatic failure in a 45-year-old Oriental woman that probably would have been fatal except for a successful liver transplant, A review of the literature of fatalities associated with ketoconazole is presented.

Abstract: Background: Preliminary reports have suggested that concomitant institution of pindolol and serotonin reuptake inhibitors robustly hastens clinical response; however, contradictory evidence from a randomized double-blind, controlled trial was recently reported by this group in a population of depressed patients who were prescribed fluoxetine and pindolol. Herein, we report final results from an extended sample size. Methods: Drug-free outpatients with a major depressive episode were randomized in a double-blind manner to one of two treatment conditions: fluoxetine (20 mg daily) with pindolol (7.5 to 10 mg daily) or fluoxetine (20 mg daily) with placebo. After 6 weeks, patients were followed for 3 more weeks in a single-blind manner, on fluoxetine and placebo pindolol. Results: Eighty-six patients completed at least 1 or more weeks on protocol, with 45 and 41 patients randomized to the pindolol and placebo groups respectively. After 2 weeks on protocol, partial remission (i.e., at least 50% decrease in depression rating scores from baseline) rates for pindolol (16%) and placebo (19%) groups were comparable. By the study’s end, a partial remission was achieved, at least transiently, for 67% of the pindolol group and 80% of the placebo group. Pindolol treatment was associated with statistically significant reduction in blood pressure and pulse as compared to the control group. The two groups did not have overall differences in rates of attrition, time to response, and side effects. Conclusions: In accord with our previously published findings, these extended results do not support the efficacy of pindolol in hastening clinical response to fluoxetine in a patient population with predominantly chronic and
