The study included 26 people diagnosed with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder. All of them had been referred to the Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses, at the London Health Sciences Centre, in Ontario. The researchers measured brain antioxidant levels before the patients started treatment for psychosis and 6 months later.

Senior author of the study Dr. Lena Palaniyappan, an associate professor at the University of Western Ontario, explains: “This study demonstrates that if we can find a way to boost the number of antioxidants in the brain, we might be able to help patients transition out of hospital more quickly, reduce their suffering more quickly, and help them return earlier to their work and studies.”
