The neutrophils of schizophrenic patients taking antipsychotic drugs were evaluated. Neutrophil immaturity was assessed by determining mean nuclear lobe number in peripheral blood smears of patients and controls. Subjects were patients medicated with typical (upenthixol (n 6), uphenazine (n 7), haloperidol (n 23), thioridazine (n 15), and triuoperazine (n(More)
Subclinical abnormality of neutrophil populations of patients suffering from schizophrenia and medicated with antipsychotic drugs was evaluated using cellular immaturity as a criterion. Neutrophil maturity of patients and controls was compared by determining mean nuclear lobularity in peripheral blood smears. White blood cell and neutrophil counts were(More)
An investigation of the relationships between physicochemical features of ten antipsychotic drugs and previously reported influence of these drugs on neutrophil maturity was made. A quantitative structure-activity relations (QSAR) approach was adopted, in which several numerical parameters describing physicochemical characteristics of the antipsychotics(More)
