Skin Test plus DNA Testing To Detect Mental Illness

According to the recent study it is said that researchers are going to improve the already available test kits to detect mental illness by DNA profiling. They are going to develop test kits which can help the physicians to detect illness such as schizophrenia and autism. The skin tests are to be developed at the first genetics laboratory in the Highlands, which opened near Inverness.

By the end of 2008 these kits can be used in remote areas, many miles from specialist psychiatric help. As a progenitor test kit the Ness Foundation has already developed skin and breath tests that aid in the diagnosis of symptoms of schizophrenia. Douglas Mundie, foundation chairman, said that with the help of these kits trained psychiatrists can diagnose the early symptoms of schizophrenia.
