Prognosis in dementia praecox

Prognosis in dementia praecox 1. In this hospital only relatively few cases (38 to 49) are admitted each year presenting a favorable outlook as we know it at present for hypoglycemic therapy. 2. With present methods, cases with a duration of less than six months show 50 per cent improvement and 22 per cent recovery. Cases with a duration of from 6 to 18 months show 38 per cent improvement and no recoveries. Cases with a duration of over 18 months show 23 per cent improvement and no recoveries. 3. These results are roughly parallel but only one-half as satis-factory as those reported from hypoglycemic therapy, as far as percentage of improvements is concerned. 4. The recovery rate for hypoglycemic therapy is far above that for other methods, but under the conditions imposed it is exceptionally difficult to reach accurate conclusions as to “recovery.” http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychiatric Quarterly Springer Journals

Abstract

1. In this hospital only relatively few cases (38 to 49) are admitted each year presenting a favorable outlook as we know it at present for hypoglycemic therapy. 2. With present methods, cases with a duration of less than six months show 50 per cent improvement and 22 per cent recovery. Cases with a duration of from 6 to 18 months show 38 per cent improvement and no recoveries. Cases with a duration of over 18 months show 23 per cent improvement and no recoveries. 3. These results are roughly parallel but only one-half as satis-factory as those reported from hypoglycemic therapy, as far as percentage of improvements is concerned. 4. The recovery rate for hypoglycemic therapy is far above that for other methods, but under the conditions imposed it is exceptionally difficult to reach accurate conclusions as to “recovery.”
