OBJECTIVE We recently reported that the type-2 cytokine response is increased in schizophrenia. The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of antipsychotic drugs on the serum levels of type-1 (TNF-α, IFN-γ), type-2 (IL-4, IL-10), type-17 (IL-17) and regulatory cytokines (TGF-β, IL-27 and IL-6). METHODS Cytokine measurements in the patients were(More)
Schizophrenia is chronic and debilitating mental disorder. In broad spectrum of possible causes or contributing factors, immune system and cytokines were investigated in the onset and development of schizophrenia. The aim of our study was to analyze the serum concentrations of type-1 cytokines: TNF-α, IFN-γ, type-2 cytokines: IL-4, IL-10, type-17 cytokine:(More)
Inflammation appears to play significant role in schizophrenia. IL-23 is key molecule in mediating IL-17 dependent inflammatory response. Therefore, we analyzed the serum concentrations of IL-23 levels in patients with first episode psychosis (78 subjects), in patients with acute exacerbation of schizophrenia who were already treated with antipsychotics (47(More)
— We present a high-speed low-power 8-channel com-parator tailored for the application of sampling antenna signals in a cross-correlator system for space-borne synthetic aperture radiometer instruments. Features like clock return path, per-channel offset calibration and bias current tuning make the comparator adaptable and gives the possibility to adjust(More)
OBJECTIVE Serum parameters of calcium homeostasis were measured based on previously published evidence linking osteoporotic fractures and/or bone/mineral loss with antipsychotics. METHODS Prospective, four-week, time-series trial was conducted and study population consisted of patients of both genders, aged 35-85 years, admitted within the routine(More)
