These changes were reflected in
discharges from the hospitals and
in a decrease in the amount of
nursing care required.
The study was considered par-
ticularly effective since the 34 hos-
pitals involved had a mental pa-

thousands. At Ann Arbor and

mental patients are currently hos-
Safety Demonstrated
The safety of the drugs was
demonstrated by the fact that al-
though more than 600 patients
were included in the study, the
occurrence of allergic reactions,
drowsiness, and other such com-
plications was neither frequent
nor troublesome.
The five different tranquilizers
and phenobarbital were, adminis-
tered during the latter part of
1958 to a total of 640 schizophrenic
patients in the 34 cooperating hos-
pitals over a period of ,12 weeks.
Clinical teams made three sepa-
rate evaluations, one at the be-

ginning, another after one month,
and a third at the end of the
treatment period.
The study was directed by the
VA central neuropsychiatric re-
search laboratory at Perry Point,

what the student has actually ac-
