“There is a greater proportional incidence of self-condemnatory delusions in schizophrenics who improve or recover than in schizophrenics who remain unimproved. There is a greater proportional incidence of persecutory delusions in schizophrenics who fail to improve than in those who improve or recover. The presence or absence of a certain type of delusion cannot be said to imply a definite prognosis in a specific case, though it has prognostic value for group predictions.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
