Glycine is a natural amino acid neurotransmitter that acts as a co-agonist at NMDA receptors in brain. We hypothesize that symptoms of the schizophrenia prodrome will improve with glycine to a greater degree than with placebo.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

This is an open label trial of the NMDA agonist glycine used alone for symptoms that appear to be prodromal for schizophrenia in adolescents and young adults.
This study will determine the effectiveness of treatment with glycine or d-cycloserine in addition to a normal antipsychotic regimen in improving negative symptoms and cognitive impairment...
This is an open-label trial of an omega-3 fatty acid for symptoms of the schizophrenia prodrome.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a dietary supplement on the concentration of a small protein called glycine that is found in the brain in people with schizophrenia. ...
Prodrome based early intervention with an antipsychotic drug vs. benzodiazepine was applied in patients with first episode schizophrenia after one year neuroleptic maintenance treatment. T...
To test the hypothesis that risk factors for BPS/IC in women differ between those with and without the BPS/IC prodrome.
Hypofunction of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) may contribute to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia (SCZ). Recently, the glycine cleavage system (GCS) was shown to affect NMDAR function in ...
We conducted a meta-regression analysis of all double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials (DBRCTs) reporting effects of drug and placebo on negative symptoms in people with stable sc...
The multiple sclerosis (MS) prodrome is poorly characterized.
Serum interleukin (IL)-6 levels in schizophrenia correlate with the severity of negative symptoms. This study aimed to explore the potential immune mechanism of SSRI augmentation in the management of ...
A PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE dependent enzyme that catalyzes the decarboxylation of GLYCINE with the transfer of an aminomethyl group to the LIPOIC ACID moiety of the GLYCINE DECARBOXYLASE COMPLEX H-PROTEIN. Defects in P-protein are the cause of non-ketotic hyperglycinemia. It is one of four subunits of the glycine decarboxylase complex.
A family of sodium chloride-dependent neurotransmitter symporters that transport the amino acid GLYCINE. They differ from GLYCINE RECEPTORS, which signal cellular responses to GLYCINE. They are located primarily on the PLASMA MEMBRANE of NEURONS; GLIAL CELLS; EPITHELIAL CELLS; and RED BLOOD CELLS where they remove inhibitory neurotransmitter glycine from the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE.
Cell surface receptors that bind glycine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glycine receptors in the central nervous system have an intrinsic chloride channel and are usually inhibitory.
An oxidoreductase that catalyzes the oxidative DEAMINATION of GLYCINE to glyoxylate and AMMONIA in the presence of NAD. In BACTERIA lacking transaminating pathways the enzyme can act in the reverse direction to synthesize glycine from glyoxylate and ammonia and NADH.
A chronic form of schizophrenia characterized primarily by the presence of persecutory or grandiose delusions, often associated with hallucination.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Psychiatry is the study of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention. Conditions include schizophrenia, severe depression and panic disorders among others. There are pharmaceutical treatments as well as other therapies to help...
