BACKGROUND Poorly defined cohorts and weak study designs have hampered cross-cultural comparisons of course and outcome in schizophrenia. AIMS To describe long-term outcome in 18 diverse treated incidence and prevalence cohorts. To compare mortality, 15- and 25-year illness trajectory and the predictive strength of selected baseline and short-term course(More)
This study reports on the findings from a WHO sponsored cross-national investigation of life events and schizophrenia. Data are presented from a series of 386 acutely ill schizophrenic patients selected from nine field research centers located in developing and developed countries (Aarhus, Denmark; Agra, India; Cali, Colombia; Chandigarh, India; Honolulu,(More)
period, the number of tests ordered has increased dramatically. As a result, the cost of clinical laboratory testing has increased considerably [1]. This has prompted the introduction of research and initiatives aimed at controlling clinical laboratory utilization without affecting the continued improvement of the quality of patient care. The solutions that(More)
Earlier virologic studies established that human T-cell lymphotropic virus type II (HTLV-II) is the predominant retrovirus type found among Seminole Indians in southern Florida. We studied 46 members of the Seminole tribe living on 3 reservations to determine the risk factors for HTLV-II and to investigate disease association with the virus. The donors'(More)
The course and outcome at a 13-14-year follow-up of the Agra cases in the International Pilot Study of Schizophrenia (IPSS) was observed by two methods: i) through a mailed questionnaire to assess the key respondents own perception of their state, ii) by a thorough clinical examination and assessment using standard instruments. The results of these two(More)

Ca 2+ transport was examined in isolated Malpighian tubules (MTs) of adult Drosophila melanogaster. All segments of both anterior and posterior MTs have substantial capacity to transport Ca 2+ and to play a role, therefore, in calcium homeostasis and elimination of excess dietary Ca 2+. Approximately 85% of Ca 2+ which enters the tubule is sequestered, and(More)

We study the underlying event in proton-antiproton collisions by examining the behavior of charged particles produced in association with a large transverse momentum jet ($ 2:2 fb À1) or with a Drell-Yan lepton pair ($ 2:7 fb À1) in the Z-boson mass region [70 < MðpairÞ < 110 GeV=c 2 ] as measured by CDF at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy. We use the(More)
