The percentage reduction on psychopathology measures after four weeks of treatment with respect to baseline was 46% for BPRS
and 66% for CGI-S, 57% for the PANSS Positive score, 39% for the PANSS General Psychopathology score, and 48% for the PANSS Total Score.
Pretreatment, posttreatment, and four-month posttreatment washout assessments included the PANSS, BPRS
, Heinrichs Quality of Life (QOL), and the General Psychiatry Cluster Score (GTOT).

total, CGI-I, and CGI-S scores.
17] Also, using BPRS
, 10 of these patients demonstrated significant improvement in psychotic symptoms during a four-week follow-up.
found that there was no correlation between serum neopterin levels and level of psychopathology in pretreatment period and after clinical improvement; the neopterin level was found to be negatively correlated with PANNS positive subscale and BPRS
total scores and positively correlated with Global Assesment of Functioning (GAF) score (16).
Exceptions include the anxiety-depression subscale of the BPRS
, which correlates at--0.
Part interview, part standardized test and part behavioral observation, mental health professionals and researchers have now amassed more than 40 years experience with the BPRS
since its inception in 1962 (Overall and Gorham, 1962).
Iloperidone demonstrated generally significant improvements over placebo in doses ranging from 4-8 mg/day to 20-24 mg/day; similar reductions in BPRS
scores were observed at six weeks for iloperidone in doses of 20-24 mg/day, as compared to the active comparators risperidone and haloperidol.
The initial BPRS
evaluation indicated that all patients were severely or extremely ill, with a mean score of 86 for those with schizophrenia, 81 for those with schizoaffective disorder, and 78 for those with bipolar disorder.
In order to gain more information about how differential attrition might have biased the analyses, we correlated attrition rates with subject demographic variables and the baseline measures of BPRS
and Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF).
In a 4-week, double-blind, crossover study of 31 nonsmoking people with schizophrenia, significant improvements over placebo were seen with a higher dose (150 mg twice daily) of the agent DMXBA (3-[2,4-dimethoxybenzylidene]-anabaseine) on SANS (Scale for the Assessment of Negative Symptoms) and BPRS
(Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale) scores (Am.
