Although in the early course of schizophrenia relapse prevention is of paramount importance, there is an increasing emphasis on establishing and maintaining sustained periods of symptom remission. Recovery in the early course of illness is also possible, although the rates of recovery are lower than for symptom remission. Symptom remission and recovery rates vary considerably across recent-onset schizophrenia studies because of a lack of consistency in treatment interventions and in applying operational outcome criteria.
