Development of new antipsychotics and their novel applications may be facilitated through the use of physiological markers in clinically normal individuals. Both genetic and neurochemical evidence suggests that reduced prepulse inhibition of startle (PPI) may be a physiological marker for individuals at-risk for schizophrenia, and the ability of(More)
Percutaneous ethanol injection therapy for autonomously functioning thyroid nodules has been performed in 53 patients. 36 patients suffered from hyperthyroidism, and 17 patients had subclinical hyperthyroidism.

Screening subjects with obesity before weight loss for prolonged QTc intervals is an accepted practice, although at present, there are no guidelines for whether subjects should be(More)
Our aim was to investigate the effects of 12-week oral magnesium (Mg) supplementation on the RBC redox system in stable, persistent, moderately asthmatic children (N = 40, 24 boys, 16 girls) aged 4–16 years in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Oxidized (GSSG) and reduced (GSH) glutathione, oxyhaemoglobin, methaemoglobin (metHb),(More)
The authors performed 310 Tenckhoff catheter implantations during the last 17 years. They had 64 complications, and 29 cases the catheter had to be changed. The incidence of peritonitis was 0.22 patients/year. They present the technic of implantation, the complications, and the possible abdominal surgeries with the patients under dialysis treatment.
