The authors stated that, in a logistic regression model, "panic disorder and anxiety measures together, with adjustment for aggression, were significant predictors of attempter status" (p. 1615), with greater anxiety associated with a lower likelihood of suicide attempts. The details of the multivariate analysis used to reach those conclusions were not made clear. Not all of the unadjusted Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale and Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale anxiety scores were significantly associated with attempter status, and it is unclear which anxiety scores were included in the model. This is particularly important given the likely distinct etiologies of cognitive and somatic anxiety. Moreover, it would be advantageous to know the quantitative relationships between the anxiety scores and attempter status and how those relationships might translate into clinically observable phenomena. It is particularly surprising that the Beck Depression Inventory score was not considered in the multivariate analyses given that the differences between the attempters and nonattempters in the Beck Depression Inventory scores were more significant than differences in any of the Hamilton anxiety scale scores.
