Plasma nitrite/nitrate concentrations in patients with schizophrenia.


BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) is known to be a signaling molecule with many physiogical functions including apoptotic process regulation. Since apoptosis may contribute to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, this study was undertaken to determine the plasma concentrations of NO in schizophrenics. METHODS Nitrite/nitrate (NO(2)(-)/NO(3)(-)) concentrations… (More)
