Platelet monoamine oxidase activity in chronic schizophrenia



Platelet monoamine oxidase activity in chronic schizophrenia



Indian Journal of Medical Research 86: 79-83



Platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity was estimated in 60 male chronic schizophrenic patients and 30 controls matched for age. A significant reduction in MAO activity was found in patients as compared to controls. Enzyme activity was not related to duration or severity of the illness. No significant difference was found in MAO activity of paranoid and non-paranoid groups of schizophrenics, and in patients with or without hallucinatory experience in auditory sense modality.
