Schizophrenic Symptoms Improve with Apomorphine
Tamminga, Carol A.; And Others
Science, 200, 4341, 567-8, May 78
In eighteen chronic schizophrenics, subcutaneous doses of the dopamine reception agonist, apomorphine, improved psychotic symptoms. The results are interpreted as a consequence of presynaptic dopamine receptor activationby apomorphine with a subsequent decrease in dopamine-mediated neural transmission. (Author/BB)
