    Department of Psychogeriatrics, Tampere University Hospital, Pitkäniemi Fin 33380, Finland
    Eur J Pain 8:371-6. 2004
    ..We conclude that ECT is a safe and effective treatment for depression in fibromyalgia patients, but has no effect on the pain or other physical symptoms of these patients...

    Martti Huuhka
    Department of Psychogeriatrics, Tampere University Hospital, Fin 33380 Pitkäniemi, Finland
    J ECT 20:179-85. 2004
    ..The major finding in this study was the relatively high rehospitalization rate, which emphasizes the need for careful follow-up of the elderly patients who have recovered from a depressive episode...

    Sami Anttila
    University of Tampere Medical School, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland

    University of Tampere, Medical School, 33014 Tampere, Finland
    Neurosci Lett 458:122-5. 2009
    ..Distributions of these genotypes or alleles did not differ between patients and controls. The studied ACE genotype was not associated with ECT results but may be associated with age of onset of the illness in patients with MDD...
