More on the "suicidal feline attraction"

I covered this story earlier, here's a bit more (from Science Blog):

Researchers have found stronger evidence for a link between a parasite in cat faeces and undercooked meat and an increased risk of schizophrenia.
The researchers tested anti-psychotic and mood stabilising medications used for the treatment of schizophrenia on rats infected with T. gondii and found they were as, or more, effective at preventing behaviourial alterations as anti-T. gondii drugs. This led them to believe that T. gondii may have a role in the development of some cases of schizophrenia.

So (here's a reverse) they found that treating the neurological symptoms had the same effect as treating the infection. It reads like another iteration of the H. pylori-gastric ulcer connection, although they are careful to note that it can explain at best a fraction of cases of schizophrenia.

Hopefully the treatment will work on some people. The story says that clinical trials on humans have already begun.
