Alprazolam was added, under double-blind conditions, to stable fluphenazine hydrochloride regimens in 12 symptomatic, chronically ill inpatients with schizophrenia. The addition of alprazolam was associated with significant, albeit modest, reductions in global psychosis, thought disorder, and paranoia ratings, with a return to pretreatment levels on(More)
Caffeine, 10 mg/kg, was administered to 13 schizophrenic patients in a double-blind placebo-controlled study of its behavioral effects. Some measures of psychopathology were significantly increased: Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS) total, BPRS subscales thought disorder, unusual thought content, and euphoria-activation, and several individual BPRS(More)
This paper describes a prototype of an inertial navigation system for use in mobile land vehicles, such as cars or mobile robots. The complete system is composed by sensors, their mechanical mount and cabling, these connect to a PC card with local processing and memory, based on a Intel 80C196KC micro-controller. The sensors used were a piezoelectric(More)
Cerebrospinal metabolites were measured in 17 patients with borderline personality disorder and 17 normal controls. There were no significant differences between the two groups in levels of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), homovanillic acid (HVA), or 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG). Within the borderline group, lower levels of CSF 5-HIAA were(More)
This retrospective evaluation involved 197 patients from independent clinical investigations of four antidepressant medications. Six variables were analyzed for their discriminative utility in predicting placebo response rates: gender; marital status; age; education; duration of illness; and severity of depressive symptomatology, as measured by Hamilton(More)
Human interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), encoded in Escherichia coli by recombinant human DNA, induces the expression of HLA antigens in the pluripotent hematopoietic stem cell line K-562 grown in serum-free growth medium. Expression was noted in 90% of the cells within 4 days and there was a high density of expression per cell, as determined by(More)
K-562 is described as a pluripotent leukemic cell line which expresses a diversity of hematopoietic cell differentiation antigens. With the use of monoclonal antibodies (MoAb), we show that the expression of these antigens is either "modulated", i.e. they are not expressed in early logarithmic growth but are expressed in late logarithmic growth, or(More)
Rubidium-86, 125I-human serum albumin and 51Cr-labelled red cells have been used to investigate the effects of the anaesthetics Nembutal (pentobarbitone sodium) and urethane on blood perfusion, blood volume and albumin leakage in 5 types of transplanted mouse tumour and in normal organs. Nembutal was found to increase the relative blood perfusion by a(More)
Computed tomographic (CT) scans of brains of patients with borderline personality disorder and normal volunteers were analyzed for ventricle-brain ratios, third ventricular size, and evidence of frontal lobe atrophy. There were no significant differences between the two groups on any of these measures except for a narrower third ventricle in borderline(More)
