Associations between polymorphisms in the T102C and A-1438G loci of the 5-HTR2A and the P1763 and P1578 markers of the DTNBP1 gene with the overall productivity and individual subprocesses of shortterm verbal memory were studied in 4-5 patients with schizophrenia and 290 healthy subjects. Subjects were asked to reproduce immediately two lists of 10 words.(More)
The antihypertensive activity and the influence of adrenal cortex hormones of benazepril versus captopril were studied in 30 essential hypertensives in a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial during eight weeks of treatment. Patients started with 50 mg of captopril or 10 mg of benazepril once daily; if normotension had not been obtained after(More)
Whether endothelial dysfunction in essential hypertension is a cause or a consequence of structural vessel wall alterations is not known. The purpose of the present study was to compare flow-mediated vasodilation and mechanical vessel wall properties of large arteries between never treated mild essential hypertensive patients with normal intima-media(More)
NRG1 is one of the most likely candidate genes for schizophrenia, though the pathway of its influences on the development of the disease is unknown. One approach to seeking the mechanisms of the association between NRG1 and schizophrenia consists of investigating the relationship between the gene and the endophenotype of the disease, which includes(More)
An association study of variations in the DTNBP1 (P1763 and P1578) and 5-HTR2A (T102C and A-1438G) genes with short-term verbal memory efficiency and its component process variables was carried out in 405 patients with schizophrenia and 290 healthy controls. All subjects were asked to recall immediately two sets of 10 words. Total recall, List 1 recall,(More)
Changes in arterial hypertension, heart rate and adrenocortical hormones (11-OCS, aldosteron, progestins) in the blood and 24-h urine were followed up in the course of 24-week use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor benazepril (10-20 mg once a day) in 24 patients with mild and moderate essential hypertension (EH) included in a placebo-controlled(More)
NRG1 is a strong candidate for schizophrenia though its role in the pathogenesis of the disease remains unknown. One of the approaches to study mechanisms underlying the association between NRG1 and schizophrenia is to investigate the association between a gene and an endophenotype of schizophrenia, e.g., cognitive dysfunctions. Authors looked for the(More)
The dynamics of neuropsychological and neurophysiological markers of cognitive functions was analyzed in the groups of the first-episode young male patients. Totally 90 patients have been studied. At the early stage of remission, the improvement of the processes associated with voluntary regulation of cognition caused by the activity of the wide circuit of(More)
A double blind placebo-controlled trial was performed to evaluate antihypertension efficacy and tolerance of a new inhibitor of angiotensin-converting enzyme benazepril (a single daily dose 10-20 mg) versus captopril (50 mg 1-2 times daily) in 30 patients with mild and moderate hypertension. Monotherapy with benazepril continued 8 weeks. Antihypertension(More)
