Delusions and other manifestations of psychotic behavior are common side effects in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients chronically treated with dopaminergic drugs. Clozapine, a dibenzodiazepine derivative, is an antipsychotic drug largely devoid of extrapyramidal side effects. We evaluated the effects of low doses of clozapine on the mental and motor(More)
Twenty patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), who developed delusions and psychotic behavior, underwent electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings before and during treatment with low-dose clozapine. Resolution of the psychotic features was observed in all cases. The EEG was unaltered in 15, whereas five patients exhibited increased generalized or focal slowing(More)
In the present study we compared the efficacy and safety of the new dopamine agonist cabergoline (CBG) with bromocriptine (BCR) in Parkinson's disease (PD). CBG has a very long half-life and can be administered as a single daily dose. Forty-four PD patients with uncontrolled motor fluctuations participated in the study. Patients were randomly and blindly(More)
BACKGROUND The unique, black, hypersaline mud mined from the Dead Sea shores is extensively used in mud packs, masks, and topical body and facial treatments in spas surrounding the lake, and in cosmetic preparations marketed worldwide, but little is known about its antimicrobiological properties. METHODS We performed detailed microbial and chemical(More)
The results of the validation of identification nanoparticle colloidal silver and gold on the polyester fibers on the background component of the Raman spectra in the control based on the polarization characteristics. The accuracy of identification of nanoparticles was evaluated by the joint probability of crossing normal scatter intensity distributions(More)
