Schizophrenia Therapies

JAMA. 2010;304(1):32. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.866

A new study in the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans shows that all major classes of antipsychotic drugs used to treat schizophrenia increase signaling in the Akt signaling pathway.

ACS Chem Neurosci. doi:10.1021/cn100010p [published online March 25, 2010]).
