In fact, a recent global metabolic profiling study resulted in the identification of ketone bodies and multiple fatty acids as possible schizophrenia markers detectable in the serum of patients [48]. Lipidomics research has also shown that phospholipid n–3 fatty acid deficits might represent markers for early, perhaps even preclinical, stages of schizophrenia, indicating a ‘metabolic vulnerability’ that could at least partly be ‘corrected’ by treatment with antipsychotic medication resulting in a ‘normalization’ of the respective peripheral lipidome markers [49].

In particular, UPLC employing sub-2-μm particles has been demonstrated to be helpful in terms of detecting more metabolites, thanks to the better resolution, which results in higher peak numbers [61–63]. It was shown, for instance, that UPLC has been able to detect about 20% more metabolite features than HPLC in the same sample, using an equivalent run time [62]. LC followed by coulometric array detection has been applied to disclose signatures of amyo- Schizophrenia: Blood-Serum-Plasma Metabolomics trophic lateral sclerosis [48] and, more recently, of Parkinson’s disease [64].

NMR Spectroscopy-Based Metabolomics In contrast to the structural information provided by MRI, NMR spectroscopy allows metabolites to be measured within the brain. NMR is conceptually dependent on the phenomenon of chemical shift in order to differentiate among several cerebral metabolites, whereby the 1H signals from the metabolites display slightly different resonant frequencies based on their specific chemical environment. NMR is sensitive to within-individual alterations in the concentration of metabolites over time on the order of 1 mmol/l, enabling a volume of interest between 1 and 8 cm3 [70].
