Cytokine Correlations in Youth with Tic Disorders

E. Carla Parker-Athill, Jared Ehrhart, Jun Tan, Tanya K. Murphy

These findings suggest a role for cytokine dysregulation in the pathogenesis of tic disorders. It also points toward the mechanistic involvement and potential diagnostic utility of cytokine monitoring, particularly TNF-α levels. Larger, systematic studies are necessary to further delineate the role of cytokines and medication influences on immunological profiling in tic disorders.
