Abstract

Six schizophrenic patients had their urinary peptide levels measured before and after 5 weeks of treatment with neuroleptic medications. For two patients, levels were also measured after a reduction in the neuroleptic dose. Because of the heterogeneity of peptide peaks with the same bioactivity, the overall peptide levels were compared to initial levels. A neuroleptic effect on peptide levels was demonstrated. Several research groups have reported enzyme induction caused by neuroleptics in vivo.
