There are no plans to publish any papers regarding this study but a brief analysis has been completed. Each of the four participants who enrolled in the study had a different diagnosis: autism with co-morbid psychosis; major depressive disorder with psychotic features, autistic disorder and psychosis-NOS. All participants were antipsychotic (AP) naïve and were assessed prior to AP treatment and at follow up time points. All participants were prescribed risperidone (Risperdal®) for the duration of study participation and doses ranged from 0.25 mg to 6 mg daily. The duration of the study was 52 weeks, however only one participant completed a week 52 visit. Two participants completed week 36 visits (lost to follow up) and one participant completed a week 12 visit (moved to a different state). The following is the data that was collected on these for subjects for the above referenced visits (one week 12, one week 52 and two week 36).
