Brain and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of homovanillic acid (HVA) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) were simultaneously measured in 48 individuals at autopsy. Concentrations of 5-HIAA and HVA in the cerebral cortex were positively correlated with their levels in the CSF for the same individual. Additionally a positive correlation was observed between postmortem CSF levels of 5-HIAA and HVA and a significant concentration gradient for both metabolites was observed in serial fractions… CONTINUE READING
