  1. Bradley’s Benzedrine Studies on Children with Behavioral Disorders


    Strohl, Madeleine P.


    In 1937, psychiatrist Charles Bradley administered Benzedrine sulfate, an amphetamine, to “problem” children at the Emma Pendleton Bradley Home in Providence, Rhode Island, in an attempt to alleviate headaches; however, Bradley noticed an unexpected effect upon the behavior of the children: improved school performance, social interactions, and emotional responses. Drawing on Bradley’s published articles on his experiments, this paper explores the historical context of his experiments and the ...

  3. What's new in cerebral palsy. (United States)

    JONES, M H


    epileptogenic foci in the cortex is also being done in young patients if drug control of seizures fails. Frontal topectomy, cingulate gyrectomy or prefrontal labotomy may be advisable in cases in which proper response to drug therapy is not obtained. Improvement in behavior as well as control of seizures may follow the use of Benzedrine,(R) Dexedrine,(R) Dilantin(R) sodium, Mebaral(R) and phenobarbital. Alcohol, paraldehyde and chloral hydrate have been effective as relaxants. PMID:13106711

    Suvorexant is a dual orexin receptor antagonist approved in the United States and Japan for the treatment of insomnia at a maximum dose of 20 mg. This randomized double-blind crossover study evaluated the abuse potential of suvorexant in 36 healthy recreational polydrug users with a history of sedative and psychedelic drug use. Single doses of suvorexant (40, 80, and 150 mg: 2-7.5 × maximum dose), zolpidem (15 and 30 mg: 1.5-3 × maximum dose), and placebo were administered, with a 10-day washout between treatments. Subjective and objective measures, including visual analog scales (VASs), Addiction Research Center Inventory, and cognitive/psychomotor tests, were evaluated for 24-hour postdose. Suvorexant had significantly greater peak effects on "drug liking" VAS (primary endpoint) than placebo. Although effects of suvorexant on abuse potential measures were generally similar to zolpidem, they remained constant across doses, whereas zolpidem often had greater effects at higher doses. Suvorexant (all doses) had significantly fewer effects than zolpidem 30 mg on secondary measures, such as "high" VAS, Bowdle VAS, and Addiction Research Center Inventory morphine-benzedrine group. The overall incidence of abuse-related adverse events, such as euphoric mood and hallucination, was numerically lower with suvorexant than zolpidem. In agreement with its classification as a schedule IV drug, suvorexant demonstrated abuse potential, compared with placebo. The abuse potential was similar to zolpidem using certain measures, but with a reduced incidence of abuse-related adverse events. Although this suggests that the overall abuse liability of suvorexant may be lower than zolpidem, the actual abuse rates will be assessed with the postmarketing experience. PMID:27253658

    目的:探讨影响梅毒患者治疗后血清学转归的因素。方法:对2010年1月至2013年1月期间我院接收治疗的128例梅毒患者进行回顾性分析,观察患者在驱梅治疗后1年的血清固定和血清转阴的情况。对影响血清固定的患者的年龄、性别、病期、治疗药物和 RPR 初始滴度等因素进行多因素 Logistic 分析。结果:128例患者中有89例(69.5%)患者发生血清转阴,39例(30.5%)患者发生血清固定,且血清固定的发生率随着患者病期的增长而增多。多因素 Logistic 分析结果显示,驱梅治疗后与血清转阴相关的临床特征包括:一期梅毒、二期梅毒患者以及年龄≤25岁的年轻患者。驱梅治疗后患者发生血清固定的因素包括:女性患者、非苄星青霉素治疗和初始 RPR 滴度≤1∶16。结论:梅毒患者经过驱梅治疗后血清学固定和转阴与患者的性别、年龄、病期、治疗药物和 RPR 基线滴度有关。%Objectives:To investigate the influencing factors on the posttreatment serologic outcome of syphilis patients.Methods:128 syphilis patients received treatment in our hospital from January 2010 to January 2013 were retrospectively analyzed,to observe the serologic outcome one year after treatment.Logistic analysis on the patient's age,gender multivariate,stage of disease,treatment,medications,RPR initial titers and other factors was conducted.Results:Of the 128 patients,89 (69.5%)patients seroconverted,and 39 (30.5%)patients had sero -resistance,whose incidence increased with the growth of disease.Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the seroconverted clinical features after treatment included:primary syphilis,secondary syphilis patients aged ≤ 25 years of age.Influencing factors of sero -resistance included:female patients,non -Benzedrine peni-cillin treatment and initial RPR titer ≤ 1:16.Conclusion:The influencing factors on the posttreatment serologic
