The precondition is that individuals at incipient risk seek help, diagnosis can be given early and the time of onset of the psychotic episode EARLY DETECTION OF SCHIZOPHRENIA _________________________________________________ 39 and the future illness course are predicted with sufficient accuracy. Three quarters of all cases of schizophrenia experience a prodromal stage without specific psychotic symptoms. We must find ways of detecting and recognizing the illness and of predicting its further course earlier than is currently the case, by using appropriate instruments and designs at earlyintervention centres and by increasing awareness and knowledge in the population at risk.

In the efforts to validate such early recognition inventories, which have to be practical and economic to use and produce favourable results, biological tests may follow at a third level of risk identification. Designs of that type are being pursued in the Edinburgh high-risk study [89] and in a multicentre study in Germany [145]. An early recognition inventory successfully validated and fulfilling all the requirements mentioned is not yet available. To achieve an acceptable number needed to treat (NNT) and, hence, to meet the main economic and ethical requirements, risk predictions in early recognition instruments (state criteria) will be supplemented by ‘‘longstanding biobehavioural markers’’ [146].

Of the 81 patients who did not develop a DSMIV schizophrenia during the study period, 33 had presented at least one basic symptom and 48 no basic symptoms. 59. On the whole, however, a remarkably high proportion of the predicted outcomes were classified correctly (78%). Klosterko¨tter et al. 77). Information on the probands’ diagnoses and other characteristics of this highly selected group at entry into the study is lacking. Therefore, it is unclear to what type of at-risk population the results are applicable.
