The present invention relates to medicine, namely to psychiatry, and can be used to predict the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis.

The study of psychotic disorders in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis represents an actual problem of modern health care. This is because in recent years, in parallel with the increase in the share of older age groups in the human population, an increasing number of elderly patients with psychotic disorders cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis. The significance of this problem is determined also by the diversity of clinical manifestations of psychotic disorders in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis, providentially their current high level of hospitalization and disability of patients and, accordingly, a significant economic burden to society. Therefore, the development of modern methods for predicting psychotic disorders cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis, in particular hallucinatory psychosis-crazy case, as in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis and healthy people is extremely important. Application of the developed method will enable identification of people with a high likelihood of galls Naturno-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis for the formation of groups at high risk of occurrence of this pathology and timely, targeted interventions for the prevention of predicted violations.

A known method for predicting the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis on the basis of determining the severity of cardiac and cerebral atherosclerosis and abnormalities in the hemostatic system [Gorodilova H.E. Mental disorders in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis and some indicators of the system of coagulation: author. dis.... Kida. the honey. Sciences. - Kazan, 1975. - 20 C.]. However, this method of predicting cerebral atherosclerotic hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis is used in patients with already developed atherosclerotic changes and may not be used among healthy people.

The prototype of the present invention is a method for predicting the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis on the basis of the evaluation of the whole complex of risk factors (corresponding to gender, age, family history of vascular disease atherosclerotic Genesis and various mental illnesses, current and long-standing exogenous hazards, such as alcoholism, craniocerebral trauma, infection, psychogenic, somatogen, complications of the atherosclerotic process and others)found among obledo the most of persons through a survey and analysis of medical documentation [Grigoriev BC The ratio of endogenous and exogenous factors in the origin and course of psychotic disorders in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis. // Ukr. neuropathol. and the psychiatrist. - 1992. No. 3. - Pp.96-98. Grigor'ev V.S. Prevalence, clinical variants and for neuropsychiatric disorders in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis (clinical-epidemiological analysis): author. dis.... Kida. the honey. Sciences. - SPb., 1992. - 31 S.]. The disadvantage of the presented method is its bias and inaccuracy, because the process of collecting and interpreting historical information in order to identify the listed risk factors is subjective and is determined by the personal characteristics of the subject and the level of professionalism of the doctor.

The objective of the invention was to develop an objective, informative predictor of the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis, allowing to estimate the risk of them as in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis and healthy people.

The technical result when using the invention - improving forecast accuracy. This technical result is achieved that selected by the method of phenol-chloroform extraction of genomic DNA from lymphocytes of 10 ml of peripheral venous blood of conduct Ana is from polymorphic locus hSERT gene vector serotonin by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) DNA synthesis. After amplification, the DNA fragments separated by electrophoresis in 6% nondenatured polyacrylamide gel and analyzed under UV light on a UV-transilluminator. When detecting genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene carrier of serotonin in the surveyed person's risk of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis increases 2.98 times.

The method is as follows. Amplification of polymorphic gene vector serotonin (hSERT) is carried out in the reaction mixture, containing about 0.1-1.0 microgram of genomic DNA with 0.1 units of Taq polymerase, 0.25 μm of the appropriate oligonucleotide primers: 5’-GTCAGTATCAACAGGCTGCGAG-3’ and 5’-TGTTCGTAGTCTTACGCCAGTG-3' and 250 μm of each deoxynucleotide in 25 ál single PCR buffer containing 67 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.8; 6,7 mM MgCl2; 16,6 mM (NH4)2SO4; 0,01% Tween-20. Mode the following amplification: initial denaturation at 95°C for 3 min, 30 cycles including annealing of primers at 58°C - 30 sec, DNA synthesis at 72°C - 1 min, denaturation at 95°C - 30 sec. Amplificatoare DNA fragments separated by electrophoresis in 6% polyacrylamide gel, stained with the bromide Aditya and identify under ultraviolet light. Electrophoresis of DNA fragments is carried out in 1*Tris-borate buffer (1*TBE) (0,089 M Tris-HCl pH 7.8; 0,089 M boric acid is the same; of 0.002 M EDTA with pH 8.0) in a vertical plates at a constant voltage of 300 volts for 1.5 hours after a 20-minute Preparata. Before application to the gel samples are mixed in a ratio of 1:5 with paint containing 0.25% bromophenol blue, 0.25% of xylazine, 15% pecola. As a marker of molecular weight using DNA phage λ, restricion > PST, or plasmid pBR322, restricion Nae. After electrophoresis the gel is stained with a solution of bromide Aditya (0.1 ág/ml in 1*TBE) for 10 minutes, washed with water and examine in ultraviolet light on a UV-transilluminator at a wavelength of 312 nm.

Set significantly higher frequency of genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene vector serotonin in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis with hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis (N=41), compared with patients with cerebral atherosclerosis with nonpsychotic forms of mental disorders (N=50)and control group (N=96): 71%; 26% and 45% (respectively, X2=16,382, RF=0,0001 and X2=6,748, RF=0,0084). Calculating genetic risk of hallucinatory-delusional psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis in the presence of genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene vector serotonin is performed on the basis of the calculation of the odds ratio is the Odds ratio (OR), reflecting on the relative risk of developing specified psychotic pathology formula OR=(a+0,5)(d+0,5)/(b+0,5)(c+0.5), and where a is the frequency of the genotype in a sample of patients; b - frequency of the genotype in the control sample; C=1 as the sum of the frequencies of other genotypes in a sample of patients; d=1-b is the sum of the frequencies of other genotypes in the control sample; the parameter of 0.5 in the formula is used when one of the numbers a, b, C, d is zero or is less than three. High risk of developing psychotic disorders ascertain when OR>1. In our study, OR=2,98 (CI=1,36-6,52) in the presence of genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene vector serotonin. Genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene vector serotonin is a diagnostic genetic marker hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis and can be used to identify groups of individuals with high risk of cerebral-atherosclerotic hallucinatory psychosis-crazy case as among patients with cerebral atherosclerosis in the early stages of this disease, and among healthy individuals in order to conduct effective preventive measures.

Health complaints were not filed. The burdened heredity as cardiovascular disease and mental illness. The mother suffers from ischemic heart disease and hypertension, the father of atherosclerosis of the coronary and cerebral vessels, complicated hallucinatory-delusional psychosis. Born in the family of an employee, developed normally. He graduated from high school, then medical school, works as a medical assistant. Married. Has a daughter. By nature reserved, sensitive, easily vulnerable, touchy. Of illness celebrates children's infections, colds, inosinic, felon. When clinical and paraclinical examination pathology of the internal organs was not found.

The results of genotyping. To define one of the possible genotypes locus hSERT gene vector serotonin in the examined was taken 8 ml of venous blood with subsequent DNA isolation and amplification of polymorphic gene vector serotonin (hSERT) in the reaction mixture, which contains Asa about 0.1-1 µg genomic DNA, of 0.1 units of Taq polymerase, 0.25 μm of the appropriate oligonucleotide primers: 5-GTCAGTATCAACAGGCTGCGAG-3’ and 5’-TGTTCGTAGTCTTACGCCAGTG-3’ and 250 μm of each deoxynucleotide in 25 ál single PCR buffer. Electrophoresis of DNA fragments were performed at a constant voltage of 300 volts for 1.5 hours after a 20-minute dielectrophoresis. After electrophoresis the gel was stained with a solution of bromide Aditya for 10 minutes and analyzed under ultraviolet light on a UV-transilluminator. A study of locus of hSERT gene vector serotonin in the examined women revealed genotype 12/10.

Conclusion: due to the fact that the carrier genotype 12/10 locus hSERT gene vector serotonin increases the risk of hallucinatory-delusional psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis in 2,98 times, the subject must take preventive measures against cerebral atherosclerosis, which in turn will contribute to preventing the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis complicating the disease.

The proposed method is modern and allows a high degree of accuracy to predict the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis as in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis, in the early stages of the cerebral and the of erosclerosis, and healthy people.

A method for predicting the development of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis, characterized in that secrete DNA from lymphocytes of peripheral venous blood by polymerase chain reaction of DNA synthesis, amplified fragments locus hSERT gene vector serotonin and identifying genotype 12/10 predict the risk of hallucinatory-delusional forms of psychosis cerebral atherosclerotic Genesis in the subject.
