Pontes, João G. M.

|Abstract:||Psychiatric disorders are some of the most impairing human diseases. Among them, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are the most common. Both have complicated diagnostics due to their phenotypic, biological, and genetic heterogeneity, unknown etiology, and the underlying biological pathways, and molecular mechanisms are still not completely understood. Given the multifactorial complexity of these disorders, identification and implementation of metabolic biomarkers would assist in their early detection and diagnosis and facilitate disease monitoring and treatment responses. To date, numerous studies have utilized metabolomics to better understand psychiatric disorders, and findings from these studies have begun to converge. In this chapter, we briefly describe some of the metabolomic biomarkers found in these two disorders|
