    J Neural Transm 110:1401-11. 2003
    ..9+/-3.8 micromol/l), especially in elderly subjects. We thus suggest that homocysteinemia, at least in females, is an unspecific risk factor for organic brain disorders, but not endogenous psychoses...

    S Fritzen
    Department of Psychiatry, Julius Maximilians University Würzburg, Germany
    Eur Neuropsychopharmacol 17:595-9. 2007
    ..Our results suggest that striatal nitrinergic interneurons are involved in the pathophysiology of at least some forms of schizophrenia, such as e.g. catatonic schizophrenia...

    Eur J Neurol 15:637-9. 2008
    ..However, no significant differences were observed between patients and controls. Bearing in mind the caveat of the small patient sample size, our data nevertheless argue against a major genetic role of MAO-A polymorphism in FTD...
