  • Following is a link to the study write up on the British Cutlass study.  This study came out in 2006 shortly after the CATIE study funded by the US.  It also (as in the CATIE study) found that new antipsychotics were not any better at treating schizophrenia than old antipsychotics.  While the CATIE study got a lot of press here in the US the Cutlass study did not.  I happened across this link to the Cutlass study tonight and thought others might be interested in it.  I had not previously seen the actual write up on the Cutlass study.  It is interesting to note that the British researchers expected to see a significantly better outcome with new antipsychotics than old antipsychotics.
