F235. Immune and Infectious Biomarkers in Psychosis and Clinically High-Risk Psychosis Populations

Immune and infectious contributions to psychiatric disease have been increasingly recognized, but mechanisms are poorly understood. Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis frequently presents with psychosis, and many studies have investigated the presence of anti-NMDAR antibodies in those with schizophrenia. Infectious diseases such as Lyme disease can present with neuropsychiatric manifestations, and co-morbid Lyme disease and psychosis has been reported in case reports.

The lifetime risk of dying by suicide in schizophrenia and related psychoses has been estimated to be approximately between 5% and 7%, though some have estimated that the number is closer to 10%. The highest risk for suicide occurs within the first year af...

ConclusionMetformin attenuated the olanzapine- and risperidone-induced metabolic dysfunctions in MK801-induced schizophrenia-like rats without reducing the therapeutic effects of the antipsychotics.

AbstractEvidence indicates that neuroplasticity-based cognitive training can improve cognition in patients with schizophrenia, but the individual response to training varies greatly between subjects. Hence, there is a need to understand the neurological underpinnings of cognitive training to reveal predictors of treatment response.d-serine is a crucial modulator of neuroplasticity, and decreased levels ofd-serine may contribute to deficits in neuroplasticity in schizophrenia. Interestingly, we observed that training mice to identify auditory oddballs increased extracellular levels ofd-serine in the hippocampus during train...

AbstractThe aim of this study was to improve flavivirus field monitoring in Brazil using a reliable probe-based RT-qPCR assay. Standard flavivirus strains were employed to evaluate the performance of the assay, and its applicability was evaluated using 235 stored pools ofCulicidae samples collected between 1993 and 1997 and in 2016. Flavivirus species were identified by sequencing. Sixteen (6.8%) samples tested positive: Ilheus virus, Iguape virus, and Saint Louis encephalitis virus were identified in historical specimens from 1993-1994, while insect-specific flaviviruses were detected in the samples from 2016. This approa...

We report the results of gene expression profiling via RNA-sequencing of primary human choroid plexus epithelial cells in vitro that were infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Epithelial cells were cultured with B. burgdorferi for 48 hours prior to RNA isolation. Following high-throughput sequencing via Illumina HiSeq 4000, a total of 258 differentially expressed genes were identified. Subsequent data analysis indicates an inflammatory and immune response generated by the epithelial cells following infection, marked by chemotactic cytokines and interferon stimulated genes. Several genes a...
