Immune dysfunction possibly linked to schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a complex illness; among other characteristics, sufferers often find it difficult to tell the difference between what is real and not real and have trouble thinking clearly.
Its symptoms could develop over months or years and mental health experts are still not entirely sure what causes it, though it is suspected that genes play a role.
A new study has discovered that a region of the genome involved in immune system function, called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), is involved in the genetic susceptibility to schizophrenia.
