The activities of antioxidant defence enzymes were determined in erythrocytes isolated from types I and II schizophrenic male patients and from healthy controls. Significant differences in superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity (type I: 3284+/-577; type II: 2959+/-697 compared with controls: 3778+/-577; analysis of variance (ANOVA) P<0.001), catalase (CAT)(More)
The selective kappa opioid receptor agonist MR 2034 exerted pronounced suppression of plaque-forming cell (PFC) response following intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration in the rat. Pretreatment with preferential kappa and mu opioid receptor antagonists MR 2266 and naloxone, respectively, revealed that this effect was mediated mainly by kappa, and to a low(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite clozapine's unique effectiveness in patients with schizophrenia, a number of adverse effects have been recognised including abnormalities in lipid and glucose metabolisms. A high clozapine level in red blood cells (RBCs) and disturbed anti-oxidant enzyme activities in blood from schizophrenic patients prompted us to investigate lipid(More)
Although severe gynaecological pathology during delivery and negative outcome have been shown to be related with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) little is known about traumatic experiences following regular delivery, at the expected time and with a healthy child. The objective of our study was to determine the prevalence of PTSD during postpartum(More)
The present study deals with the influence of preferential kappa-opioid agonist MR 2034 on experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE). For this purpose, 9-week-old male Dark August rats were treated intraperitoneally with 0.2 mg/kg of MR 2034 as follows: (a) from the day of EAE induction until sacrifice; (b) from the day of EAE induction until the(More)
Pregabalin, or S-(+)-3-isobutylgaba, is a lipophilic analogue of GABA. Although pregabalin is structurally related to GABA, it is inactive at GABA receptors and does not appear to mimic GABA physiologically. Pregabalin is a potent ligand for the alpha-2-delta subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels in the central nervous system. It is currently being(More)
OBJECTIVE Trazodone is an effective antidepressant. The present study was designed as a non-interventional open-label, multi-centre, post-marketing study. The aim of the study was to evaluate the therapeutic effectiveness and tolerability of trazodone retard formulation (Trittico(®) retard) in everyday clinical practice. METHODS Two hundred and forty-two(More)
Preclinical Research After the identification of the schizophrenia as an illness over a century ago, treatment of affected individuals included unspecific, mostly very robust methods including deep insulin coma and lobectomy/leucotomy. The first relatively specific treatment of schizophrenia started about 60 years ago with the antipsychotic chlorpromazine.(More)
