OBJECTIVE The present study was to examine serum levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), folate, homocysteine (Hcy), and their relationships with hippocampal volume and psychopathology in drug naïve, first episode schizophrenia. METHOD Drug naïve, first episode schizophrenia patients and healthy controls were enrolled in the study. Serum(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was to examine the relationship between serum levels of prolactin and the inflammatory status in drug-naïve, first-episode schizophrenia patients with normal weight. METHODS Patients with normal weight, drug-naïve, first-episode schizophrenia and healthy controls were enrolled in the study. Serum levels of prolactin (PRL) were(More)
In this paper the averaged cortical evoked potential (C-CEP) induced by stimulating the C-fibers of the splanchnic nerve was used as an index of visceral pain to further study the effects of acupuncture and morphine on it. Experiments were carried out on 35 cats anesthetized with chloralose and immobilized with flaxedil. The splanchnic nerve was stimulated(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the changes in the serum Dickkopf-1 (DKK-1) and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b (TRACP-5b) levels in preschoolers with nephrotic syndrome (NS). A total of 50 preschoolers (3-5 years old) with NS and 20 healthy preschoolers (control group) were enrolled in the prospective single-center study. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was to examine the levels of adiponectin (APN) and other cytokines, and body metabolism in drug naïve, first episode schizophrenia patients with normal weight. METHODS Ninety-six drug naïve, first episode schizophrenia patients with normal weight (SZ group), 60 healthy individuals with normal weight (control group), and 60 overweight(More)
Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a small-vessel disease in children that is often accompanied by kidney damage.
