25th European Congress of Psychiatry / European Psychiatry 41S (2017) S69–S105

Objectives and methods

In the framework of the EU-funded

project “EU-Madness”, we collected and analysed all the reports

of drug-related fatalities in Ibiza from January 2010 to September

2016, with the aim of characterising the sample, and identifying

the involved substances and the nature of deaths associated with

their consumption.


Overall, 58 drug-related fatalities were registered from

2010 to September 2016 (87.9% males, 12.1% females, mean age

33.16; females were significantly younger than males). Most of the

deceased were Britons (36.2%), followed by Spanish (22.4%), Ital-

ians (6.9%) and Germans (5.2%). In half the cases, the substance

identified in post-mortem analyses was a stimulant; in 24.1% of

the sample it was a depressor a prescription drug or more than two

substances in 22.4%. Most of the fatalities were due to cardiovas-

cular accidents (62%); 22.4% were deaths by drowning, 12% by fall

from heights and 3.4% were due to mechanical asphyxia.


According to the results fromour sample, stimulants

(mainly MDMA and cocaine) are the substances of abuse involved

in most drug-caused fatalities. The number of fatalities per year

has been steadily increasing, but the growing diffusion of novel

psychoactive substances (NPS) does not seem to be a direct cause

(although better methods of their analysis in post-mortem samples

should be designed).

The abnormal bodily phenomena questionnaire

(ABPq) originates from the analysis of clinical files of more than

350 patients with schizophrenia. It consists in a semi-structured

interview created to evaluate the subjective anomalies in feelings,

sensations, perceptions and cognition in the domain of the lived



The present study is aimed at providing preliminary

data for the validation of the Italian version of the ABPq.


The ABPq was translated and adapted into Italian. ABPq

scores were correlated to those obtained by the schizophrenia

proneness instrument, Adult version–body perception distur-

bances (SPI-A E, body) that evaluates the same kind of phenomena,

in order to examine its convergent validity. Moreover, ABPq was

correlated to psychopathological domains assessed by the Positive

and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and by the Brief Negative

Symptom Scale (BNSS).


The experimental sample included 40 clinically stable

patients. Our findings showed a strong correlation between ABPq

and SPI-A E, body. An association of ABPq total score with the pos-

itive and disorganized dimensions was also observed.


Our preliminary data suggest that the Italian version

of ABPq has a good convergent validity. The presence of abnormal

bodily phenomena resulted to be associated to a greater severity

of the disease and therefore it could be hypothesized that they

represent an indicator of clinical severity.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been vastly associated with

the development of depression and it is thus considered that the

mechanisms that underlie this link should be explored. The present

study aimed to examine the longitudinal effects of IBD symp-

toms and a maladaptive emotion regulation process, experiential

avoidance (defined as the tendency to attempt to control inter-

nal experiences), on depression symptoms. The sample comprised

116 IBD patients of both sexes that completed validated self-report

measures on an online platform in three different times (equally

spaced 9 months apart) during an 18-month period. Results

demonstrated that IBD symptomatology at baseline was linked to

experiential avoidance and depressed mood 9 and 18 months later.

The level of experiential avoidance at baseline was also correlated

with the subsequent experience of depression symptoms, 9 and 18

months later. Results also revealed that, although IBD symptomato-

logy at baseline predicted depressive symptomatology 18 months

later (


= 0.24;


= 0.008), when experiential avoidance at baseline

was added to this model, this process became the only predictor

of the outcome (


= 0.60;


< 0.001;



= 0.41). These results corrob-

orate previous literature by indicating that IBD symptomatology

may lead to depression symptomatology. Nevertheless, the current

study additionally revealed that the engagement in experiential

avoidance – that is, in attempts at controlling the frequency, form

or intensity of internal experiences – might have a greater role on

the determination of patients’ depressed mood than the experi-

ence of adverse physical symptomatology. Maladaptive forms of

emotion regulation in IBD patients should be targeted to prevent

depression symptoms.

The Maudsley obsessional-compulsive inventory

(MOCI) is a widely used self-report measure of obsessive-

compulsive symptoms in clinical andnon-clinical populations, both

in research and clinical settings. Nogueira et al. confirmed in 2011

that the MOCI Portuguese version has good psychometric proper-

ties, having a factorial structure that is in accordance with those

reported by other groups.


Based on the previous results of exploratory factor analy-

sis with a Portuguese students sample, the present study aimed to
