any development in gene therapy for schizophrenia?
Posted by patricia on August 02, 1999 at 17:39:17
my son is schizophrenic, he lives in a group compound and is functional,with the right meds. he could be a viable assest
to society. As yet nothing has helped him well enough for him to be able to function outside the foundation that is caring for him. Since this disease is a chemical imbalance and he is not brain damaged, will gene therapy be of benefit and is there anything on the horizon on this type of therapy?
