This is the first study to show that a pre-existing panic is an independent risk aspect for subsequent onset of suicidal ideation [thoughts] and efforts, the authors conclude. Moreover, the data obviously demonstrate that co-morbid panic disorders amplify the risk of suicide attempts in persons with mood disorders.

Anxiety disorders increase risk of suicidal thoughts A pre-existing panic significantly increases the threat of a subsequent onset of suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts, according to a study in the November issue of Archives of General Psychiatry.Thus, the research by Neiker-Tecnalia provides aimed to discover antimicrobial alternatives to growth-promoting antibiotics. Chitosan has turned out to be a viable alternative given that, apart from its proven antimicrobial activity, it has particular advantages being, since it is certainly, a biodegradable, non-toxic and renewable compound. This antimicrobial activity enables putting forwards the hypothesis that chitosan specifically affects some of the microorganisms of the rumen -the largest pre-stomach of the ruminants-, and in a beneficial way for rumen digestion.
