    Ten serum proteins are measured by quantitative immunoelectrophoresis in 20 chronic schizophrenic and nine epileptic patients. Results from each group are compared with each other and with normal values and significant differences noted. Schizophrenic patients had higher haemopexin levels and epileptic patients had higher α2 group component levels, both compared with normal subjects. Also schizophrenics had higher αPGp and α1AT levels compared with epileptics.
