To determine whether neurite outgrowth depends upon the mevalonate pathway, we blocked mevalonate synthesis in nerve growth factor-treated PC12 cells or primary cortical neurones with atorvastatin, a 3-hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor, and substituted different intermediates of the mevalonate pathway. We show that HMG-CoA(More)
After humans were treated at therapeutic doses with the trichomonacide metronidazole (Flagyl) and the antischistosomal agent niridazole mutagenic activity was demonstrable in their urines when tested with the histidine auxotroph of Salmonella typhimurium. Both compounds were active in the host-mediated assay in mice, and evidence of activity was found in(More)
The urine of two patients receiving therapeutic doses of the trichomonacide, metronidazole, was analyzed for mutagenic activity using the histidine auxotroph TA1535 of Salmonella typhimurium. The activity detected in the urine was significantly higher than could be accounted for by the presence of the administered drug. Chromatographic analysis of the urine(More)
Analysis of the prescribing of psychotropic drugs in the psychiatric hospital of the Free University of Berlin revealed a slight decrease in the mean number of prescriptions to our patients over recent years. As a response to intensified psychopharmacological pretreatment the proportion of patients who had initially been treated drug-free (up to the 10th(More)
The psychopathological and somatic symptoms documented by the AMDP-system on the admission of 1654 patients to the Psychiatric Clinics of the Universities in München und 659 patients in Berlin were factor analyzed. Eight factors could be extracted which describe the psychopathology on eight syndrome-scales. These factors could be cross-validated by factor(More)
