The ratio of plasma phenylalanine to other large neutral amino acids is not a risk factor for tardive dyskinesia.

Abstract:

The ratio of the plasma concentration of phenylalanine (PA) to the sum of the plasma concentrations of other large neutral amino acids (LNAA) was calculated in 26 chronic, in-patient schizophrenics who met diagnostic criteria for tardive dyskinesia and 22 patients who did not. No difference in the PA/LNAA ratio was found between the two groups. Small positive correlations were found between age and both PA/LNAA ratio and tardive dyskinesia. Neuroleptic dose correlated negatively with both age...
