(4) Given this diagnostic shift, one might wonder about the difference between PCBD and depression, particularly if the patient is a grieving individual with a current diagnosis of depression.
Other differences between PCBD and major depression involve the constructs of guilt and yearning.
As with many mental health diagnoses, major depression and PCBD are not mutually exclusive.
As mentioned, DSM-5 has criteria for PCBD that providers can use in determining a patient's grief status.
Also keep in mind that no measure can make a diagnosis of PCBD, as it is a clinical judgment, not a score on a scale.
The literature base emphasizes that PCBD treatment requires a different focus than that applied to uncomplicated grief.
Across species, the intron hmgn2 (mean length of 347 nt) had a mean of 15.4 haplotypes and 17.4 polymorphic sites; irf2 (540 nt) averaged 12.2 haplotypes and 15.5 polymorphic sites; mb (689 nt) had the smallest number of haplotypes (7.4) and polymorphic sites (6.5); nat15 (528 nt) had a mean of 14.1 haplotypes and 17.5 polymorphic sites; pcbd (538 nt) had the highest mean number of haplotypes (15.7) and polymorphic sites (19.5); and finally, rho (434 nt) had a mean of 9.7 haplotypes and 9.6 polymorphic sites.
Haplotype reconstruction was more difficult for some genes (pcbd, nat15, and hmgn2), but the number of significantly negative Fu's F values did not differ in these genes compared to the other three genes.
