OBJECTIVE To report a case of ziprasidone- and lithium-induced neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). CASE SUMMARY A 47-year-old white male with a history of schizoaffective disorder was admitted to the hospital due to an exacerbation of severe mania. He had been taking lithium 450 mg twice daily and divalproex sodium 750 mg/day. On hospital day 2,(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment with the atypical antipsychotic drug clozapine appears to be associated with an increased incidence of urinary incontinence (UI). We posited that the potent anti-alpha-adrenergic effects of clozapine were involved, and hence that an alpha-adrenergic agonist would reduce UI. We tested this hypothesis by using ephedrine, an approved(More)
A novel alkyl-phospholipid with selective antitumor activity was isolated from an anticancer biopreparation cACPL (crude anticancer phospholipids) and from tissues of degenerating chick embryos. The alkyl-phospholipid was isolated and purified by chromatographic methods using silicic acid column chromatography and thin layer chromatography. The chemical(More)
BACKGROUND Weight gain is a common side effect of clozapine treatment and may expose patients to obesity-associated health risks. We proposed that concomitant treatment with an appetite suppressant such as phenylpropanolamine (PPA) would lead to a decrease in appetite and therefore loss of weight. METHOD This was a 12-week, double-blind, randomized,(More)
The synthesis and properties of spherical radiopaque hydrogel particles designed for endovascular occlusion are reported. These particles were prepared by the hydroxyl acylation of low crosslinked poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) beads with a nontoxic radiopaque compound based on triiodobenzoic acid, without affecting their properties which are advantages(More)
Interoperability is the key concept for approaches on building future-proof EHR systems. Two-level modelling and archetypes methodologies bring this goal one step closer. The challenge lies in fully structuring medical documents as to not leave valuable information hidden when searching. A study for laboratory processes from the IHE was taken and refined(More)
