  2. 2. Bridging immune activation with the kynurenine pathway : implications for psychosis

    Författare :Markus Larsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Kynurenic acid (KYNA), an endogenous N-Methyl-D-aspartic acid receptor (NMDAR) antagonist, is elevated in patients with schizophrenia. In addition, elevated levels of KYNA are associated with activation of the immune system, which also has been implicated in the development and maintenance of psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia.
