Abstract

Levels of CSF fluid interleukin-2, but not interleukin-1 alpha, were found to be higher in 10 neuroleptic-free schizophrenic patients than in 10 healthy subjects matched for sex and age. Because interleukin-2 increases dopaminergic neurotransmission and participates in autoimmunity and cell growth, the authors postulate that elevated levels of central interleukin-2 might contribute to the increased dopaminergic neurotransmission, autoimmune phenomena, and abnormal brain morphology described in some patients with schizophrenia.
