Criteria for symptom remission revisited: a study of patients affected by schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorders

The use of more restrictive severity criteria of remission seems to be associated with improved identification of truly remitted patients.

Optimizing the early prediction model for symptomatic remission with short-term treatment for schizophrenia.

The most influential predictors for ultimate remission were percentage of Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale score reduction at week 2 and BPRS remission-items score atweek 2, which seemed to be the optimal cutoff points for remission.

What are residual symptoms in schizophrenia spectrum disorder? Clinical description and 1-year persistence within a naturalistic trial

A significant association was found between the presence of residual Symptoms and the severity of side effects and functioning at discharge as well as between residual symptoms and the risk of relapse and chance of remission one year after discharge.

Remission and Recovery and their Predictors in Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder: Results from a 1-Year Follow-Up Naturalistic Trial

The remission status at discharge was found to significantly influence remission and recovery at follow-up and a higher SOFAS score as well as a positive attitude towards treatment at discharge were identified to be significant predictors of remission at 1-year follow- up.



On the concept of remission in schizophrenia

The new remission criteria proved to be an achievable goal for clinical trials and a consensus on the application of their time component is still needed.

Statistical validation of the criteria for symptom remission in schizophrenia: Preliminary findings

Results indicate that the remission criteria are both and specific indicators of clinical status, and additional analyses are required to determine if remission status predicts other outcomes, such as employment, independent living, and prognosis.

Logistic regression analysis revealed that the global functioning in the year before admission, the total score of the Strauss–Carpenter Prognostic Scale and the PANSS negative subscore at admission were predictive for symptom remission and explained 36% of the observed variance.

Symptomatic remission in previously untreated patients with schizophrenia: 2-year results from the SOHO study

A high proportion of patients with schizophrenia who start antipsychotic treatment achieve remission after 2 years of treatment, and type of medication, symptom severity and previous functioning are important predictors of outcome.

Remission in schizophrenia: proposed criteria and rationale for consensus.

The first consensus-based operational criteria for symptomatic remission in schizophrenia are based on distinct thresholds for reaching and maintaining improvement, as opposed to change criteria, allowing for alignment with traditional concepts of remission in both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric illness.
