It has been established that cytokines play a critical role in the regulation of the CNS and recent studies have suggested that dysfunctions of both pro-inflammatory (IL-1beta, IL-6, and TNF-alpha) and anti-inflammatory (IL-1RA and IL-10) cytokines could be involved in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Previous studies have reported that functional polymorphisms in some cytokines genes may have important regulatory effects on such system. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to… CONTINUE READING
