The Nordic countries have similar health care and welfare systems, and rather homogenous populations. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect similar use of psychotropic drugs. However, recent studies show marked differences in a range of psychotropic drug classes among children and adolescents in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
To review the literature regarding psychotropic drug use among children and adolescents in the Nordic countries.
We performed a critical systematic literature review according to PRISMA guidelines and registered the study protocol at PROSPERO. Three scientific databases were used: PsycINFO, EMBASE and PubMed. Inclusion criteria were: 1) Age: 3-19 years, 2) Country: Denmark, including Faroe Islands and Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, including Aland, and Iceland, 3) Drug of interest: Psychotropics, including Antidepressants, ADHD medication, antipsychotics, hypnotics, anxiolytics, 4) Population based study sample, 5) Observational study design, 6) Original data, 7) English language, 8) Publication date: 2010-2021. The review process was performed by four reviewers in three steps: 1) title/abstract screening, 2) full text screening, and 3) data extraction, including risk of bias assessment. Before study initiation, acceptable interrater reliability was ensured by pilot tests.
The literature search was conducted October 6th, 2021. The PsycINFO database gave 285 hits, EMBASE 1190 hits and PubMed 2185 hits. In total, the literature search gave 3660 hits, of which 294 were duplicates, leaving us with 3366 references. The first screening phase is in process and results will be presented at the EPA conference.
The results of the systematic review will be interpreted and discussed.
The frequency of the more common patterns of non-disjunction in Neurospora was studied. Detection of these asci was accomplished by the use of pantothenate requiring strains grown on reduced amounts of pantothenate, so that combinations of dark, pale, and aborted spores provided evidence of non-disjunction. The isolates from five non-disjunction asci were examined in detail and an apparently high frequency of mitotic recombination was detected for presumed disomic isolates. An hypothesis concerning a mechanism of non-disjunction is presented.
Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) thin films had been fabricated by a laser deposition technique. Our previous results indicated that the hexagonal structured films could be formed at a substrate temperature of 400 C or higher. Reducing the temperature to 200 C or lower, cubic dominant films had been fabricated. To further understand the effects of other deposition parameters, CdS films were deposited at 30 C in this study. Crystal structures of the films were analyzed by Xray diffraction (XRD) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). It was found that the processing windows for the cubic films were very limited. As revealed by optical transmission measurements, the optical absorption edge of the cubic film was different from that of the hexagonal film.
