Scientists Developed a Blood Test that Detects Schizophrenia

Researchers from the US developed a method for diagnosing schizophrenia. A report about their work can be found in the journal Analytical Chemistry.

Scientists offer diagnosising chizophrenia to pay attention to oxidative stress - cell damage due to oxidation. In their view, this mechanism is closely associated with many diseases, including schizophrenia and other mental disorders.

The new approach has been tested on a cohort of patients with schizophrenia and healthy individuals. As a result, researchers were able to correctly separate the blood samples of sick people from healthy one. For the detection of oxidative stress they used iridium salt as for the evaluation of the process in the food products. The researchers hope that their technique will be used for the diagnosis of schizophrenia: the sooner the disease is found, the more successful it is treated. Now the diagnosis is sometimes stretched for a year.
