[Changes in the clinical picture and course of psychoses as a result of massive psychopharmacotherapy and their role in improving treatment services]. Avrutskiĭ G Ia Zhurnal nevropatologii i psikhiatrii imeni S.S. Korsakova (Moscow, Russia : 1952) An analysis of certain regularities in drug pathomorphosis of psychoses in the form of transitions from psychotical states to pseudoneurotic showed a slowing in their progression, changes in the syndrome structure, an increase in the amount of incomplete or reduced conditions. This circumstance prompted reconsideration of some routine therapeutic approaches. The main recommendations include restriction of neuroleptics, expansion of the diagnosis of depressions, the use of methods of intensive psychopharmacology in combination with active rehabilitation, as well as introduction of new forms of organizational aid.
Electrometric measurement of canine pancreatic tissue pH under conditions of preserved circulation and of ischaemia. Farkas S,Lantos L,Halmágyi G,Gecser G,Ezer P Acta medica Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae Canine pancreatic pH was measured by an electrometric method, which is described in detail. 60 measurements carried out in neuroleptanalgesia of the animals gave a mean figure of 7.29 +/- 0.10 for pancreatic pH in situ. For arterial blood pH in the same animals the mean value was 7.22 +/- 0.08. The difference between pancreatic and arterial blood pH is significant. Anaesthesia of 3 hr duration produced no significant change either in pancreatic pH or in arterial blood pH or in the serum amylase and serum lipase levels. Vascular isolation of the pancreas and adjoining duodenal segment was produced in 13 animals. In 10 of these ischaemia induced by clamping of the arterial pathways for 1 hr resulted in a fall of pH by 0.65 +/- 0.21. Restoration of blood-flow at the end of the first hour was followed by a return of pH to the original values. The 3 control animals revealed no significant changes in the pH and enzyme values.
