Plasma Androgens in Male Schizophrenics

TL;DR: Both chronic schizophrenic groups have a significantly lower level of dehydroandrosterone, which suggests the possibility of reduced adrenal cortical functioning in chronic schizophrenia.
Journal ArticleDOI

Biochemical Identification of Schizophrenia

TL;DR: By utilizing radioactive glucose labeled at the 1carbon and the 6 carbon, it was found that the insulin stress decreased the rate of incorporation of the 1 carbon of glucose into CO2 by blood from control subjects, but such a drop did not occur with blood from schizophrenic patients.
Journal ArticleDOI
