Suggestive evidence for a potential susceptibility locus for schizophrenia at 5q31 was obtained in two family samples. Sample I consisted of 14 families with schizophrenia and revealed for the marker IL9 a lod score of 1.8 by two point lod score analysis. Sample II comprised 44 families including four from sample I and was ascertained in order to employ(More)
The HILT sensor has been designed to measure heavy ion elemental abundances, energy spectra, and direction of incidence in the mass range from helium to iron and in the energy range 4 to 250 MeV/nucleou. With its large geometric factor of 60 cm'sr the sensor is optimized to provide compositional and spectral measurements for low intensity cosmic rays, Le.(More)
The antipsychotic effects of dopamine D2 receptor antagonists (neuroleptics) and the psychotomimetic effects of dopamine agonists suggest that a defect of the D2 receptor gene might be a factor in the etiology of schizophrenia. Fifteen families that contained several members suffering from schizophrenia were tested for linkage between the D2 receptor gene(More)
The dopamine D4 receptor gene and the closely placed tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) receptor gene are important candidate genes for schizophrenia; both are located on the short arm of chromosome 11. Multipoint linkage analyses excluded linkage of schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder to both candidate genes in a sample of 15 multiplex and systematically(More)
81 women who accessed counseling and case management services at a domestic violence shelter after three sessions reported that abuse decreased, life satisfaction increased, perceived coping ability improved, as did their satisfaction with the services. Shelter users, however, also displayed significant skill deficits in the inability to apprise or respond(More)
Ten pedigrees systematically ascertained in Germany were tested for linkage to chromosome 5q11-q13. In order to replicate the previous report by Sherrington et al (1988), families with a bipolar family member were omitted from the lod score calculations, all diagnoses were based upon Research Diagnostic Criteria, and four different models of the affection(More)
