Abstract
One hundred consecutive autologous stem cell transplants are reported: Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma 51 cases, Hodgkin's disease 27 cases, acute leukaemia 14 cases, multiple myeloma seven cases and chronic myeloid leukaemia one case. Most patients were in their second or later remission. The overall three-year survival for all patients was 60% and the three-year disease-free survival was 50% for lymphoma patients and 30% for acute leukaemia patients. The dominant source of stem cells was bone marrow during 1993, but from 1994 it has been peripheral blood, now totalling 33 cases. There were 12 toxic deaths, all among patients who were heavily treated before bone marrow harvest and transplantation. The patients transplanted with blood stem cells had significantly shorter duration of pancytopenia, and hospital stay, but their disease-free survival was not longer than that of a comparable group of bone marrow transplanted patients. Six patients were transplanted with purified CD34+ cells (selected by avidity column (Ceprate (R)), and had duration of thrombocytopenia and hospital stay similar to the patients transplanted with unmanipulated blood stem cells, but slightly longer duration of neutropenia. We conclude that high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplantation in not too heavily pretreated patients is a safe procedure irrespective of the source of stem cells.

Abstract
Impaired emotion perception is documented for schizophrenia, but findings have been mixed for bipolar disorder. In healthy samples females perform better than males. This study compared emotion perception in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and investigated the effects of gender.
Visual (facial pictures) and auditory (sentences) emotional stimuli were presented for identification and discrimination in groups of participants with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and healthy controls.
Visual emotion perception was unimpaired in both clinical groups, but the schizophrenia sample showed reduced auditory emotion perception. Healthy males and male schizophrenia subjects performed worse than their female counterparts, whereas there were no gender differences within the bipolar group.
A disease-specific auditory emotion processing deficit was confirmed in schizophrenia, especially for males. Participants with bipolar disorder performed unimpaired.

Abstract
First-episode psychosis (FEP) patients show structural brain abnormalities. Whether the changes are progressive or not remain under debate, and the results from longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies are mixed. We investigated if FEP patients showed a different pattern of regional brain structural change over a 1-year period compared with healthy controls, and if putative changes correlated with clinical characteristics and outcome.
MRIs of 79 FEP patients [SCID-I-verified diagnoses: schizophrenia, psychotic bipolar disorder, or other psychoses, mean age 27.6 (s.d. = 7.7) years, 66% male] and 82 healthy controls [age 29.3 (s.d. = 7.2) years, 66% male] were acquired from the same 1.5 T scanner at baseline and 1-year follow-up as part of the Thematically Organized Psychosis (TOP) study, Oslo, Norway. Scans were automatically processed with the longitudinal stream in FreeSurfer that creates an unbiased within-subject template image. General linear models were used to analyse longitudinal change in a wide range of subcortical volumes and detailed thickness and surface area estimates across the entire cortex, and associations with clinical characteristics.
FEP patients and controls did not differ significantly in annual percentage change in cortical thickness or area in any cortical region, or in any of the subcortical structures after adjustment for multiple comparisons. Within the FEP group, duration of untreated psychosis, age at illness onset, antipsychotic medication use and remission at follow-up were not related to longitudinal brain change.
We found no significant longitudinal brain changes over a 1-year period in FEP patients. Our results do not support early progressive brain changes in psychotic disorders.

Abstract
During an 11 month period, use of coercion was prospectively registered in a psychiatric department. Of all patients who had been subjected to coercion 36% were (n = 86) interviewed subsequently. Eleven percent of the interviewed patients did not know, that they had been submitted to coercion, 22% did not know the reason and 30% did not agree with the motivation for the decision. Forty-seven percent were satisfied with the information they had been given concerning how to complain of their treatment, 50% were satisfied with their adviser and 70% were satisfied with their overall admission. Sixty-five percent accepted that there should be a law allowing the use of coercion in psychiatry.

Abstract
To investigate potential risk factors for medication non-adherence in patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
A total of 255 patients underwent clinical assessments, neurocognitive testing and blood sampling. The patients were divided into groups of 'No', 'Partial' or 'Full' adherence. Relationships to different risk factors were analyzed.
In schizophrenia, use of illicit substances, alcohol and poor insight were related to worse adherence. Schizophrenia patients with No adherence did better on tests of executive functioning, verbal learning and memory and had higher IQ than patients with better adherence. There were higher levels of autonomic side effects in the non-adherence group, but body mass index was lower in the Partial adherence group than in the Full adherence group. In the bipolar disorder patients, there was an association between the use of illicit substances and alcohol and poor adherence. We found no relationship between adherence behavior and neurocognition in the bipolar disorder group.
Substance use is an important risk factor for non-adherence in patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Poor insight is also a risk factor in schizophrenia. The results suggest that cognitive dysfunction is not a risk factor for non-adherence in these diagnostic groups.

Abstract
The study describes the type and amount of coercion used during 11 months of 1992. Four hundred and fourty-one cases were included. Young patients i.e. 10 to 29 years old, demented patients and patients suffering from organic psychoses were, overall, more often subjected to coercive measures. When looking at each type of coercion separately, it was found that detainment, compulsive treatment and fixation were especially used on the young and on patients suffering from schizophrenia. However, fixation used as a protective measure was mainly used on the demented and the 60 to 79 year-old patients.
