This study performed in collaboration with Singapore's Novartis Institute of Tropical Illnesses and Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology is published in the PlosPathogens journal, and is also supported by Singapore STOP Dengue Translational and Clinical Analysis Programme grant. However, through the years of vaccine development, scientists possess learnt that the path to finding a virus of appropriate power is fraught with problems. This hurdle is normally compounded by the complexity of the dengue virus.At age 15, individuals gave info on self-harm, depressive mood and any Goth identification. These were also asked if they identified with various other subcultures, such as sporty, well-known, skateboarders, antisocial, loners, ‘keeners’ and ‘bimbos.’ At age 18, they answered queries about depression and self-harm. Weighed against teens who didn’t identify as Goth in 15, those that ‘quite definitely’ identified as Goth were more than three times as likely to have clinical depression at 18. Even children who ‘somewhat’ identified as Goth were 1.6 times much more likely to be depressed at 18. Skaters and loners also had an increased risk for unhappiness and self-harm, but the association was strongest for Goths, the researchers found. Teenagers who regarded themselves sporty had been least likely to be depressed or harm themselves at 18.
