6081. Depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: clinical and biochemical correlates. (Abstract)

) and higher body mass index (P=0.05). Women receiving oral contraceptives for the treatment of PCOS were less depressed than patients not receiving treatment (P=0.03).Possible selection bias, use of a screening tool alone without further diagnostic evaluation of depression, small samples size and lack of direct comparison with an age matched control group, should be considered in interpretation of these results.Findings suggest a high prevalence of depression among women with PCOS, and an association (...) Depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: clinical and biochemical correlates. We assessed the prevalence of mood disturbance among women with prospectively documented polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).Thirty-two women with PCOS completed the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Rating Scale (CES-D).

6082. The Vulnerable Attachment Style Questionnaire (VASQ): an interview-based measure of attachment styles that predict depressive disorder. (Abstract)

The Vulnerable Attachment Style Questionnaire (VASQ): an interview-based measure of attachment styles that predict depressive disorder. The Vulnerable Attachment Style Questionnaire (VASQ) was developed to provide a brief self-report tool to assess adult attachment style in relation to depression and validated against an existing investigator-based interview (Attachment Style Interview--ASI). This paper describes the development and scoring of the VASQ and its relationship to poor support (...) . This was not the case for the proximity-seeking subscale.The VASQ is a brief self-report measure that distinguishes individuals with attachment styles vulnerable for depressive disorder. The use of the measure for screening in research and clinical contexts is discussed.

6094. A review of screening tools for psychiatric comorbidity in headache patients. (Abstract)

A review of screening tools for psychiatric comorbidity in headache patients. Psychiatric comorbidity, especially depression and anxiety, has been well documented in patients with primary headache disorders. The presence of psychiatric comorbidity in headache patients is associated with decreased quality-of-life, poorer prognosis, chronification of disease, poorer response to treatment, and increased medical costs. Despite the prevalence and impact, screening for psychiatric disorders (...) in headache patients is not systematically performed, either clinically or in research studies, and there are no guidelines to suggest which patients should be screened or in what manner. We review a variety of screening methods and instruments, focusing primarily on self-report measures and those available in the public domain. Informal verbal screening may be sufficient in a primary care setting, but should include screening for both anxiety and depression. Explicit screening for anxiety is important

6095. A downscaled practical measure of mood lability as a screening tool for bipolar II. (Abstract)

A downscaled practical measure of mood lability as a screening tool for bipolar II. Current data indicate a strong association between Cyclothymic temperament (and its more ultradian counterpart of mood lability) and Bipolar II (BPII). Administration of elaborate measures of temperament are cumbersome in routine practice. Accordingly, the aim of the present analyses was to test if a practical measure of mood lability was unique to BPII, in comparison with major depressive disorder (MDD).Using (...) swings were still significantly associated with BP-II. Sensitivity and specificity of mood swings for predicting BPII were 62.9% and 62.7%, respectively.The low specificity of trait mood lability for BPII diagnosis is probably due to the fact that we used a downscaled simplified measure of this trait.On the other hand, the relatively high sensitivity of our downscaled measure of mood lability for predicting BPII supports its usefulness as a screening tool for this diagnosis. The lack of association

Estimation of the risk for nutritional state degradation in patients with cancer: development of a screening tool based on results from a cross-sectional survey. In routine practice, the evaluation of the nutritional status of patients with cancer is not always performed although there is frequent modification as disease progresses.

In this study we analysed factors that could be used to identify (...) ) and professional status (OR = 2.08; P = 0.02). Using a logistic model, we calculated the risk of weight loss as a function of the presence of the identified predictive factors.We report a simple screening tool, which will not replace the available evaluation methods but will enable targeting of the patients most likely, after a specific evaluation, to benefit from nutritional intervention. This remains to be validated in further prospective studies.

Threshold Amsler grid as a screening tool for asymptomatic patients on hydroxychloroquine therapy. Patients taking hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) are at risk of developing classic bull's eye maculopathy. Currently, the standard Amsler grid (AG) is one of the most useful methods to identify such lesions. However, AG is a suprathreshold target and may not detect relative central scotomas. The aim of this study was to determine if the threshold Amsler grid (TAG) test, which varies light transmission (...) , the average area of each scotoma detected by all three methods expanded from 34.5 square degrees of central field loss on AG testing to 71 square degrees on RAG and 117 on TAG.By decreasing the perceived luminance of the suprathreshold AG, TAG testing provides a novel alternative to detect shallow scotomas and areas of depressed retinal activity secondary to HCQ toxicity.
