A remarkable discovery was made by Dr. Sawa and his colleagues while testing an experimental anticancer medication on mice. Their findings revealed that the drug reversed symptoms of schizophrenia and restored some lost brain function in the animal. Compound FRAX486 halted the out of control biological process in the brain that destroys connections of brain cells in schizophrenia.
