Platelet MAO activity in posttraumatic stress disorder.
Platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity was assessed in 23 patients with posttraumatic stress disorder and 19 age-matched male control subjects. An overall significantly lower MAO activity was observed in the posttraumatic stress disorder group. When the group was divided into those with and those without a history of alcohol abuse, only the former group differed significantly from control subjects. The heuristic importance of these findings is discussed.
