Objective To evaluate the changes in plasma levels of interleukin-2(IL-2),soluble interlekin-2 receptor (sIL-2 R),interleukin-6(IL-6) and soluble interleukin-6 receptor (sIL-6 R) in first-episode schizophrenics before and after treatment.
Objective To examine the serum levels of interleukin-4 (IL-4) , IL-10, IL-12 and interferon-γ ( IFN-γ) in patients with first episode schizophrenia and their correlation with the psychopathology and illness duration.
Methods 136 first episode schizophrenic inpatients were randomly assigned into two groups of 68 cases each: clozapine therapy group(control group) and psychological education combined with clozapine therapy group (study group) .
It is shown that the first episode of star formation was characterized by an initial mass function shifted toward massive stars (M ≥ 8M⊙).
Patients whose first episode was paranoid or positive had the highest age at onset.
It was expected that ApoE ε4 allele frequencies would be elevated not only in Alzheimer's disease and dementia in general, but also in first episode, late-life depression accompanied by subtle cognitive impairment (possibly organic depression).
The initial signs consisted mainly of negative and affective symptoms, which accumulated exponentially until the first episode, as did the later emerging positive symptoms.
Method: The Multidimensional Health Locus of Control scale was used in a sample of 50 people with schizophrenia during the first episode and at 18-month follow-up, 51 diabetic controls and 51 normal controls.
Free quotients and the first betti number of some hyperbolic manifolds
In this note we present a very simple method of proving that some hyperbolic manifoldsM have finite sheeted covers with positive first Betti number.
The first one is a conjecture of Ian Hughes which states that iff1, ..., fn are primary invariants of a finite linear groupG, then the least common multiple of the degrees of thefi is a multiple of the exponent ofG.
First appeared in passing in the basic paper of O.
To prove this, we first state and prove a general result which gives a criterion for checking whether a variety of dimensionN≥3 is a (compactification of a) ball quotient.
