Science has been covering the area of behavior with people that have schizophrenia. Findings are that immune function may play an important role in psychiatry and behavior. Researchers have been working with groups and have found that serum CRP levels were elevated in the schizophrenia group. They also were taking into account that genetics are potentially affecting levels of CRP.

“CPR may be linked to schizophrenia”.

Researchers has found that CRP is testable and quantifiable to measure and potentially can be acted upon. Their finding suggests that CRP levels are associated with both late- and very-late-onset schizophrenia and also general schizophrenia. There may be ways to reduce higher levels of CRP, but CRP is just one facet of a lot more schizophrenia.

Key Takeaways:

Elevated C-reactive protein may increase risk of schizophrenia.
C-reactive protein elevates with increased inflammation in the body.
C-reactive protein is merely one factor in the risk for schizophrenia.
