|Official Title:||Effects of Reveratrol on Cardiovascular Risk Markers and Cognitive Performance in Patients With Schizophrenia: a Randomized Clinical Trilal|
- Assessment of cardiovascular risk will be realized by measurement of cytokine levels, C-reactive protein and cholesterol levels. [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Assessment of cardiovascular risk will be realized by measurement of cytokine levels (IL-12p70, IL-6, IL-10, IL-1b, IL-8 and TNF-α), C-reactive protein and cholesterol levels (total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides) in patients with schizophrenia before and after supplementation with resveratrol or placebo.
- Cognitive performance will be assessed with a battery of cognitive tests and BPRS (brief psychiatric rating scale) to assess symptoms. [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Cognitive performance will be assessed with a battery of cognitive tests (Hopkins, for verbal memory; Stroop: for executive function; Digits WAIS-III, for attention; and Sequence numbers and letters for verbal memory and attention) and BPRS (brief psychiatric rating scale) to assess symptoms.
- Nutritional evaluation will be conducted by anthropometric data and food intake by 24-hour Recall Survey. [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Nutritional evaluation will be conducted by anthropometric data (weight, height, waist and hip circumference, body fat percentage) and food intake by 24-hour Recall Survey (24HR).
