The major topic of this e-book concems the connection, if any, among and addietion. Are they associated biochemieally? Is there a schizophrenia universal issue for all addietions? we have to comprehend even if the chemis­ try out of habit might help make clear the biochemistry of schizophrenia and vice versa. there's a lot anecdotal proof that many victims from schizophrenia are addieted to smoking, are adversely plagued by even small quantities of alcohol and do have their schizophrenie disorder wor­ sened through highway medications. we might urge our readers to attempt to discover correla­ tions among a few of the findings defined right here at the biology of schizophrenia and what they learn within the updated chapters on addie­ tions. we wish to thank the entire authors for the distinction in their paintings and for his or her cooperation and figuring out of our wishes and likewise, for the second one time this 12 months, to thank MTP Press for his or her willingness to pub­ lish a probably slightly provocative booklet. We thank them for his or her humanity.

For these reasons as weH as because dopamine receptor blockade appears to be of value in treatment it is of interest to know whether there is any abnormality of dopaminergic transmission in schizophrenia. The first approach to this question was by assessment of dopamine metabolites in cerebrospinal fluid after administration of probenecid, which blocks the egress of the acid metabolites of monoamines. These studies yielded no evidence of increased dopamine turnover (Bowers, 1974; Post et al. , 1975).
