Antidepressants raise risk of suicidal behavior

Antidepressants raise risk of suicidal behavior for young people, FDA says
Posted 12/5/2006 4:20 PM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) — Using antidepressants increases the risk of suicidal behavior among young adults but lessens it for seniors, the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday.

The effects of antidepressants on adults from 25 to 64 were mixed, so much so that the FDA would only conclude the drug had a neutral effect on suicidal behavior for them.
The information from the mass review of 372 drug trials will be discussed during a meeting next week during which the FDA's staff will discuss plans for changing the labels on drugs such as Lexapro, Zoloft and Paxil.

"When results are analyzed by age, it becomes clear that there is an elevated risk for suicidality and suicidal behavior among adults younger than 25 years of age that approaches that seen in the pediatric population," the FDA said in documents that were released ahead of its Dec. 13 meeting on potential labeling changes

Acute Talent Crunch Forces Firms To Set Up Academies, Tie Up With Colleges

T Surendar I TNN

Mumbai: It surely must be one of the greatest ironies facing the country. A nation of over a billion cannot find enough people to run its businesses now bursting at the seams with growth. "The issue is not one of employment, it is one of unemployability" says a leading HR consultant.
Which is why, in Mumbai, accounting firm Ernst & Young (E& Y) is chasing graduates to join its tax academy. The academy promises to train them as tax associates and offers jobs to successful students. In Chennai, India's largest software company TCS will soon launch its own academy to train 2,000 science graduates. They will be absorbed into the company later this year. Fresh

graduates will earn a stipend during the training period. Infosys' new $300 million campus in Mysore can lodge 13,500 trainees at a time--the largest facility of its kind anywhere in the country. ICICI Bank has tied up with Delhi University to offer a certificate course in banking and insurance.
It is also partnering with a few associates to set up an Institute of Banking & Finance. In three years, 25,000 people are expected to pass out of the institute.
Retail giant Pantaloon has seeded MBA programmes in seven business schools. Graduates passing out of these courses are being absorbed by the company. It has also started a three-year BBA program with a focus on retail in association with the MaduraiKarnraj University. Consulting firm Accenture

has tied up with XLRI in Jamshedpur to launch the XLRI-Accenture HR Academy to train people for the booming BPO business.
Thanks to an acute shortage of trained professionals, India's marquee companies are either setting up in-house training institutes to meet their growing demand for talent or tying up with universities to create courses that will meet their requirements. Unlike the common, short duration on-the-job training modules, these new insitutes are conducting structured courses ranging from five months to a year to train science and commerce graduates. In most cases, after the completion of the programmes, the trainees are absorbed as employees by the companies.
