At the Thrombophilia Clinic of the Hospital Federal dos Servidores do Estado do Rio de Janeiro there is a high prevalence of acute psychotic episodes, which allows the investigators to raise the suspicion that the thrombotic tendency or hypofibrinolysis play a role in the onset of the disease. It is striking that most of these patients, after some time on anticoagulants, no longer need to take psychiatric medication.
Description: The investigators' hypothesis is that a high prevalence of hypofibrinolysis markers will be probably found in psychotic patients.Measure: Prevalence of hypofibrinolysis markers in psychotic patients Time: One year
Description: The investigators are assessing clinical and laboratory markers of plasminogen activator imbalance in psychiatric patients who require electroconvulsive therapy, specifically patients with major depressive disorders and schizophrenia.Measure: Prevalence of Clinical and Laboratory Markers of Hypofibrinolysis in Patients who Need Electroconvulsive Therapy Time: 2013-2014
There is one SNP
This study intents to investigate the prevalence of hypofibrinolysis markers, such as PAI-1 4G/5G and 4G/4G, protein S deficiency, antiphospholipid antibodies and prothrombin G20210A, in psychotic patients. --- G20210A ---
