BACKGROUND Orofacial clefts (OFCs) are one of the most common birth defects in humans. Maternal use of folate antagonists including dihydrofolate reductase inhibitors has been associated with a higher risk of OFCs thus suggesting that folate-related metabolism and associated genes may be involved in pathogenesis of OFC. The association between folate intake(More)
BACKGROUND First-rank symptoms (FRS) in schizophrenia have been found to be associated with various cognitive and biological markers. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been shown to modulate such factors. We hypothesized that rTMS adjunctive to antipsychotics will be safe and effective in treatment of FRS in schizophrenia. METHODS(More)
