The pattern of human growth hormone (HGH) release was studied in depressed patients during sleep under EEG control and employing high temperature exposure. The patients were free of drugs and were compared with corresponding control groups. In the sleep study (6 depressed patients), 2 patients showed no definite increase in HGH plasma concentration, and 3(More)
Twenty schizophrenic patients were treated for a year with long term neuroleptic Penfluridol to test its antipsychotic and re-socializing effect. They underwent a clinical follow up and an evaluation of psychosocial aspects was also performed by a psychiatric social worker. Their social behaviour and reinsertion to work and family were studied by the use of(More)
65 chronic-schizophrenic outpatients were treated with fluphenazinedecanoate for 24 months. Hallucinations and delusions remitted between week 24 and 36, formal disturbances of thinking occurred in 50% of the patients up to the 24th week, mood disorders and disorders and schizophrenic changes in personality could only gradually be controlled. In the first 3(More)
The investigation was designed to study plasma drug concentration and prolactin response determined by two different doses of haloperidol, a standard one and four-fold higher the other, and to explore the relationships between clinical effects and pharmacokinetic and physiological variables in psychotic patients. 24 psychotic patients received haloperidol(More)
The electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) continues to be of use in the management of patients suffering from affective psychosis and some clinical forms of schizophrenia. The use of premedicated anaesthetic and miorelaxant drugs lessens the possibility of complications, but risks the induction of serious cardiorespiratory accidents. The flunitrazepam is a(More)
26 patients with a paranoid-hallucinatory syndrome were treated with a fixed daily dose of haloperidol. Psychopathological symptoms and parkinsonism were studied before and during the treatment. HVA and 5-HIAA concentrations in CSF were determined immediately before and after 5 or 15 days of treatment. After 5 days of treatment a slight effect was observed(More)
The time-course of psychopathological symptoms, of extrapyramidal side effects, and of changes in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentration of homovanillic acid (HVA) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) were simultaneously studied during Haloperidol treatment of 14 psychotic patients with chronic organic brain damage. After 15 days of treatment(More)
Palmomental reflex, glabellar reflex and oral responses were studied in the course of a treatment with Haloperidol in 14 psychotic patients with a chronic organic brain damage. An increase of the three responses was found; maximum intensity and frequency of the primitive reflexes were reached during the first 5 days of treatment. There was no correlation(More)
