) ( ). There is very sparse peer review literature comparing impedance and LTA methods and a lack of clinical validation in the diagnosis of heritable platelet function defects. Other tests Platelet alpha granule proteins [e.g. Platelet Factor 4 (PF4) and Beta‐Thromboglobulin (βTG)] can be measured by ELISA, radioimmunoassay or Western blotting and may be helpful for the diagnosis of Quebec platelet disorder ( ). Electron microscopy has also proven very useful for defining ultrastructural abnormalities associated (...) with a variety of platelet defects ( ). The simpler whole mount electron microscopy technique has proven useful for confirming dense granule defects ( ). Molecular genetic diagnosis of heritable platelet disorders may offer valuable confirmation of diagnosis in affected individuals, in family members where phenotypic testing of platelets is impractical and for ante‐natal diagnosis. Molecular diagnosis is most feasible in GT and BSS where the number of candidate genes is small and there are already accessible

from 2000 to 2005 – the boom before the bust these journalists are writing about – antidepressant prescribing also increased, by 36%. This isn’t very different to 43%, so it feels unlikely that the present increase in prescriptions is due to the recession. That’s not the only problem here. It turns out that the number of prescriptions for an SSRI drug is a rubbish way of measuring how many people are being treated for depression: not just because people get prescribed SSRIs for all kinds of other (...) things, like anxiety, PTSD, hot flushes, and more; and not just because doctors have moved away from older types of antidepressants, so would be prescribing more of the newer SSRI drugs even if the number of people with depression had stayed the same. Excitingly, it’s a bit more complicated than that. A looked at prescribing and diagnosis rates in Scotland. Overall, again, the number of prescriptions for antidepressants increased from 1.5 million in 1996 to lion in 2001 (that is, it almost doubled
