COVID-19 and psychosis risk: Real or delusional concern?

Cameron J Watson, Rhys H Thomas, Tom Solomon, Benedict Daniel Michael, Timothy R Nicholson, Thomas A Pollak,

Historical epidemiological perspectives from past pandemics and recent neurobiological evidence link infections and psychoses, leading to concerns that COVID-19 will present a significant risk for the development of psychosis. But are these concerns justified, or mere sensationalism? In this article we review the historical associations between viral infection and the ... Read more >>

The Interleukin-1 Balance During Encephalitis Is Associated With Clinical Severity, Blood-Brain Barrier Permeability, Neuroimaging Changes, and Disease Outcome.

Benedict Daniel Michael, Michael J Griffiths, Julia Granerod, David Brown, Geoff Keir, Małgorzata Wnęk, Daniel J Cox, Rishma Vidyasagar, Ray Borrow, Laura M Parkes, Tom Solomon,

<h4>Background</h4>Encephalitis is parenchymal brain inflammation, commonly due to herpes simplex virus (HSV). Key host inflammatory mediators and their relationship to blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability, neuroimaging changes, and disease outcome are poorly understood.<h4>Methods</h4>We measured levels of 38 mediators in serum (n = 78) and cerebrospinal fluid (n = 37) specimens from ...

The evaluation of a tailored intervention to improve the management of suspected viral encephalitis: protocol for a cluster randomised controlled trial.

Ruth Backman, Robbie Foy, Peter J Diggle, Rachel Kneen, Sylviane Defres, Benedict Daniel Michael, Antonieta Medina-Lara, Tom Solomon,

<h4>Background</h4>Viral encephalitis is a devastating condition for which delayed treatment is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Clinical audits indicate substantial scope for improved detection and treatment. Improvement strategies should ideally be tailored according to identified needs and barriers to change. The aim of the study is to evaluate the ... Read more >>

The development of an intervention to promote adherence to national guidelines for suspected viral encephalitis.

Ruth Backman, Robbie Foy, Benedict Daniel Michael, Sylviane Defres, Rachel Kneen, Tom Solomon,

<h4>Background</h4>Central nervous system infections can have devastating clinical outcomes if not diagnosed and treated promptly. There is a documented gap between recommended and actual practice and a limited understanding of its causes. We identified and explored the reasons for this gap, focusing on points in the patient pathway most amenable ... Read more >>

A concise panel of biomarkers identifies neurocognitive functioning changes in HIV-infected individuals.

Thomas D Marcotte, Reena Deutsch, Benedict Daniel Michael, Donald Franklin, Debra Rosario Cookson, Ajay R Bharti, Igor Grant, Scott L Letendre, ,

Neurocognitive (NC) impairment (NCI) occurs commonly in people living with HIV. Despite substantial effort, no biomarkers have been sufficiently validated for diagnosis and prognosis of NCI in the clinic. The goal of this project was to identify diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers for NCI in a comprehensively characterized HIV cohort. Multidisciplinary ... Read more >>
