11/100 patient years in the STEP-BD sample. Further evidence supporting a high mortality related to physical illness in those with BPD comes from the UK GP database (Osborn et al. 2007). 52. 63). B Mitchell et al. respectively). Another recent report found no increase in rates of cancer in those with BPD (Hippisley-Cox et al. 2007). 12 Conclusion How do these studies of course and outcome inform future research into furthering our understanding of the neurobiology of BPD? They highlight the centrality of recurrence and cycling as the core features of this highly disabling condition phenomena that persist despite the development of multiple mood stabilizers since lithium in the late 1940s.
