OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate the effects of low doses of clozapine in flexible regime in comparison with haloperidol and chlorpromazine in long term. METHOD The naturalistic study was prospective, active-controlled with 325 adult outpatients of both genders (140 females), with mean year age of 34.8 (range 21-57), suffering from chronic(More)
OBJECTIVE Serum parameters of calcium homeostasis were measured based on previously published evidence linking osteoporotic fractures and/or bone/mineral loss with antipsychotics. METHODS Prospective, four-week, time-series trial was conducted and study population consisted of patients of both genders, aged 35-85 years, admitted within the routine(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of two of the most important functional CYP1A2 variations −3860G > A and −163C > A on carbamazepine pharmacokinetics in Serbian pediatric epileptic patients. The study involved 40 Serbian pediatric epileptic patients on steady-state carbamazepine treatment. Genotyping for −3860G > A and −163C > A was(More)
OBJECTIVE Nandrolone decanoate (ND) is frequently used anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) among the athletes. Despite the health risks, there is significant increase in prevalence of AAS abuse. DESIGN The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of chronic exposure to ND at supraphysiological dose (to mimic the doses for human AAS abusers) on(More)
The most efficient method for amitriptyline dose individualization has not been established as yet. For this purpose the authors developed and clinically assessed the modified Bayesian method supported by original basic computer program. Twenty-one male and 39 female subjects (32-65 years old), with major depressive disorder (International Classification of(More)
Our four-year study, conducted on isolated rat stomach and rectum strips from adult rats of the same brood in five series, demonstrated for the first time notable variations of the responsiveness of the gut smooth muscles to glutamate, the findings that point to strong variability of glutamate contractile action which could lead to inconsistencies and(More)
Although the contractile effects of glutamate and related excitatory amino acids on gut smooth muscle strips have been demonstrated, the mechanisms, and particularly the physiological importance of that action, remain unknown. In this study, glutamate, aspartate, AMPA, quisqualate, cis-ACPD and (2R,4R)-APDC evoked concentration-dependent contraction of(More)
