Darwin against cancer. How evolutionism can help prevention and treatment

This book wants to recapitulate the cellular and molecular mechanism underlying the adaptative and evolutionary nature of cancer and to discuss how we might take advantage from considering cancer an adaptative and evolutionary disease to design new strategies for cancer therapy and prevention.

Schizophrenia Proneness Instrument, Child and Youth (SPI-CY) - Extended English Version

Although psychosis constitutes a terrible disruption in the life of an adolescent, the long term effects can be considerably ameliorated by rapid diagnosis and decisive therapeutic action. The SPI-CY will prove to be a vital piece of equipment in helping us revolutionise the care of young people with early-onset psychosis.

Instrumento de Vulnerabilidad a la Esquizofrenia, Versión para Adultos (SPI-A)

El Instrumento de Propensión a la Esquizofrenia, Versión para Adultos (SPI-A), evalúa un amplio rango de alteraciones auto-vivenciadas sutiles definidas inicialmente como síntomas básicos. Está fundamentalmente diseñado para contribuir en la predicción de primeros episodios psicóticos, así como para facilitar el abordaje de una gran variedad de cuestiones clínicas y de investigación relacionadas con diferentes estadios de la enfermedad. El SPI-A proporciona importantes elementos para comprender los déficits y quejas subclínicas que a menudo preceden episodios psicóticos francos y permanecen durante la remisión. Por tanto, está principalmente dirigido a psiquiatras y psicólogos con un interés clínico y científico en las psicosis, aunque también podría ser relevante para otros profesionales, estudiantes, pacientes y familias implicados en el cuidado de personas con psicosis. Los mismos pacientes podrían sentirse ayudados por el SPI-A a la hora de expresar sus experiencias subjetivas, que a menudo resultan muy difíciles de describir espontáneamente.

Schizophrenia Proneness Instrument, Child and Youth version (SPI-CY)

Language: German

The Schizophrenia Proneness Instrument, Child and Youth version (SPI-CY) has its origin in the basic symptom concept first described by Gerd Huber. Basic Symptoms are subtle, subclinical self-experienced disturbances in drive, stress tolerance, affect, thinking, speech, perception and motor action, which are phenomenologically clearly distinct from (attenuated) psychotic symptoms. They can be present before the first psychotic episode, between and after psychotic episodes, even during psychotic episodes themselves. They are thought to be the most immediate psychological expression of the neurobiological disturbance underlying the development of psychosis – thus the term ‘basic’.
