Neurodegenerative processes may be involved in the pathogenesis of tardive dyskinesia (TD). Accumulating evidence suggests that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays a critical role in the maintenance of functional neurons. The present study was to examine plasma BDNF levels and the relationship among BDNF level, psychopathological and tardive dyskinesia symptoms in schizophrenic patients with TD. Eighty schizophrenic patients with TD were compared with 45 schizophrenic patients… CONTINUE READING
