The determinants of increased psychosis risk among immigrants remain unclear. Given ethnic density may be protective, we investigated whether the presence of immediate family, or "family networks", at time of immigration was associated with risk of non-affective psychosis.

Positive psychotic experiences are associated with increased rate of white noise speech illusions in patients and their relatives. However, findings have been conflicting to what degree speech illusio...
Certain migrant groups are more likely to develop a psychotic disorder compared to the native-born populations and a younger age at migration is associated with greater risk. However, it is not known ...
Gender differences in symptomatology in chronic schizophrenia and first episode psychosis patients have often been reported. However, little is known about gender differences in those at risk of psych...
High rates of suicidal behaviour (SB) have been found in first episode psychosis (FEP) patients. It has been suggested that the presence of multiple suicide attempts (mSA) increases the risk of later ...
Early psychosis programs treat high ratios of migrants, given they display higher rates of psychosis. Studies on this topic are limited and less is known about outcomes. The aim of this study was to c...
This study aims to evaluate, at long-term, the occurrence of liver disease and cardio-vascular risk, in a sample of patients diagnosed with first episode of non-affective psychosis.
"Multimodal Prevention of Psychosis - a Randomized Trial Investigating the Efficacy of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) and Integrated Preventive Psychological Intervention (IPPI) in Subjects Clinically at High Risk for Psychosis"
Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder associated with significant impairments in affective, cognitive and social functioning. Consequently, a special interest in the prevention of schi...
The overall purpose of this study is to determine whether a family history of psychosis is associated with an altered cannabinoid system. This will be tested by studying individuals with a...
The purpose of this study is to learn whether a new family therapy using computer games with biofeedback might help people at clinical high risk for psychosis and their family members lear...
This study aims to evaluate the presence of lung function impairment in a sample of patients diagnosed with non-affective psychosis.
The change in gene frequency in a population due to migration of gametes or individuals (ANIMAL MIGRATION) across population barriers. In contrast, in GENETIC DRIFT the cause of gene frequency changes are not a result of population or gamete movement.
The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.
Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
Any system which allows payors to share some of the financial risk associated with a particular patient population with providers. Providers agree to adhere to fixed fee schedules in exchange for an increase in their payor base and a chance to benefit from cost containment measures. Common risk-sharing methods are prospective payment schedules (PROSPECTIVE PAYMENT SYSTEM), capitation (CAPITATION FEES), diagnosis-related fees (DIAGNOSIS-RELATED GROUPS), and pre-negotiated fees.
Phenomenon of cell-mediated immunity measured by in vitro inhibition of the migration or phagocytosis of antigen-stimulated LEUKOCYTES or MACROPHAGES. Specific CELL MIGRATION ASSAYS have been developed to estimate levels of migration inhibitory factors, immune reactivity against tumor-associated antigens, and immunosuppressive effects of infectious microorganisms.
