These patients were compared to two control groups: normal subjects and brain-damaged institutionalized patients. No relationship was found between platelet MAO activity and(More)

Platelet MAO activity was found to be elevated in primary depressive illness, and the severity to correlate positively with MAO activity. The reactive depression subgroup's mean platelet MAO activity was not significantly different from that of the controls. The endogenous group's unipolar and bipolar subgroups had significantly different platelet MAO(More)
Several psychosocial variables were investigated as predictors of 4-year survival in a sample of 97 end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing treatment by hemodialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, or renal transplantation.

OBJECTIVE We sought to compare the feasibility and accuracy of transthoracic real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography (RT-3DE) with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for the preoperative functional assessment of patients with mitral valve prolapse. METHODS In 44 patients with severe mitral regurgitation caused by type 2 valve dysfunction, TEE and(More)
The sensory gating deficits in schizophrenia have been theorized to associate with increased distractibility. We explore the potential associations between sensory and sensorimotor gating and subjective and objective indices of distraction in healthy subjects. Forty healthy males were assessed with the P50 suppression and pre-pulse inhibition of the startle(More)
