The aim of the present study was to explore the role of glutamate related amino-acids in drug-naive first episode psychosis patients. The medication naïve patients with first episode psychosis (FEP) (n= 40) and healthy volunteers with no family history of schizophrenia (n= 35) were recruited to the study and followed up for 10 weeks. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry method was used to measure plasma levels of the aminoacids.
