Posted on Dec 22, 2016.   Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to measure the higher levels of oxidative stress present in patients with schizophrenia, according to a new study.
The researchers found a 53% elevation in NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydrogen )  in the chronic schizophrenia patients, as compared to healthy individuals of similar age. A similar degree of NADH elevation was also seen in newly diagnosed schizophrenia, suggesting that oxidation imbalance is present even in the early stages of illness. Modest NADH increases were also seen in bipolar disorder, which shares some genetic and clinical overlap with schizophrenia
