In this issue of the Journal, Meltzer et al.1 present provocative results from a randomized, double-blind I study showing that larger-than-typically-prescribed doses of olanzapine appear to be equivalent to conventional doses of clozapine in treatment-resistant schizophrenia. Although the sample size is relatively small (total N = 40), the data are consistent with the notion that highdose olanzapine might be effective in treatment-resistant schizophrenia. These findings are important because they open up the possibility of a new approach to treatmentresistant schizophrenia.​​
