Article Abstract

Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

Schizophrenia remains one of the most severe and debilitating of the mental disorders. As clinicians, we are well aware that many of our patients face a lifetime of recurrent psychotic episodes, often with persistent symptoms between acute episodes, together with significant cognitive and functional impairment.

Brought together in this supplement are a series of articles addressing key issues in the treatment of schizophrenia and reviewing the place of atypical antipsychotics, particularly quetiapine (Seroquel), in clinical practice.
