The present report analyzes the agreement between the interview and the self-report formats of the instruments Structured Clinical Interview for Social Anxiety Spectrum (SCI-SHY) and Structured Clinical Interview for Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum (SCI-OBS), already validated, in three psychiatric patient samples and controls. Thirty patients (10 with(More)
A simple reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method enabling the simultaneous analysis in plasma of the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine, its demethylated metabolite, and the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluvoxamine, was developed. The drugs and dibenzepine, the internal standard, were extracted from 1 mL plasma through an automated(More)
Steady-state plasma concentrations of clozapine and norclozapine, its major metabolite, as well as their sum and ratio (norclozapine/clozapine), were evaluated in 50 in- and outpatients taking clozapine and naturalistically recruited. Drug plasma concentrations were measured by means of a reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RPLC) method(More)
This study investigated a series of clinical characteristics, including the level of insight into illness and axis I comorbidity, in 125 patients with bipolar disorder with psychotic features categorized in three groups: 62 patients with mania, 28 patients with mixed mania, and 35 patients with depression. All patients were hospitalized and were assessed in(More)
BACKGROUND DSM-IV identifies three stress response disorders (acute stress (ASD), post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and adjustment disorders (AD)) that derive from specific life events. An additional condition of complicated grief (CG), well described in the literature, is triggered by bereavement. METHODS This paper reports on the reliability and validity of(More)
1. The authors present here a sensitive and rapid reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method which enables the simultaneous analysis in plasma of two different drugs and their metabolites: the atypical neuroleptic clozapine and the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine. 2. Samples and the internal standard (dibenzepine) were extracted through automated(More)
