In general, meningopolyradiculitis (Bannwarth's syndrome, stage 2 of neuroborreliosis) follows a predictable monophasic self-limiting course. In contrast, we report the case of a patient with an untreated meningopolyradiculitis which evolved into acute schizophrenia-like psychosis due to persistent infection with Borrelia burgdorferi. The psychosis resolved(More)
The nucleotide sequence of cytoplasmic phenylalanine tRNA from Euglena gracilis has been elucidated using procedures described previously for the corresponding chloroplastic tRNA [Cell, 9, 717 (1976)]. The sequence is: pG-C-C-G-A-C-U-U-A-m(2)G-C-U-Cm-A-G-D-D-G-G-G-A-G-A-G-C-m(2)2G-psi-psi-A-G-A-Cm(More)
BACKGROUND Standard practice in canine blood banking is to produce fresh frozen plasma (FFP) by separating and freezing plasma produced from blood within 8 hours of collection. Within canine blood donation programs, this can limit the number of units collected. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES The aim was to compare the coagulation factor and hemostatic protein(More)
HEREIN I REVIEW EVIDENCE showing that carotid endarterectomy has not been proved effective in stroke prevention, propose a means for setting up an extensive randomized trial which could rapidly accrue numbers of patients sufficient to definitively resolve the issue, and discuss the implications of such an approach. 1 have expressed their uncertainty as to(More)
This is a non-randomized exploratory study showing the sensitivity of neurophysiological parameters for autonomic side-effects during the application of antidepressant drugs. Inpatients on tricyclic antidepressants (TCA: amitriptyline or doxepine), inpatients on serotonine-reuptake inhibitors (SSRI: fluvoxamine or paroxetin) and a control group of healthy(More)
The background of the present study is a general uncertainty as to what comprises the essence of hysterical (histrionic) personality disorder. Using phenomenological methodology, phenomena observable in the 'classic' hysterical personality are analysed, described, named, and classified according to the basic functions of human experience and behaviour. The(More)
In a longitudinal survey of 122 healthy criminal offenders aged 18 to 37 years, the relationship between intelligence measured by the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), neuropsychological scales and delinquency was investigated. The Benton Test correlates well with the WAIS and moderately with offence data, but not with recidivism in delinquency. The(More)
The association of negative symptoms on one hand and cognitive failures and language and thought disturbances on the other hand was examined in 25 schizophrenics and 22 neurotics over a 2-month period of intensive therapy. Psychopathological negative symptoms were more pronounced in schizophrenics than in neurotics at the first assessment before intensive(More)
