Psychosis is associated with an elevated risk for cardiovascular disease. We reviewed evidence for a causal association between experimentally controlled antipsychotic drug exposure and a change in the expression of genes relevant to cardiovascular disease in human cell lines. Reports from SCOPUS - V.4 (Elsevier) and MEDLINE (ISI) were assessed for global or candidate gene expression analysis, tissue and cell type, tissue source or cell line, antipsychotic drug and dosage, length of drug exposure and statistically significant fold change in gene expression after drug exposure; 29 eligible studies analysed gene expression in the brain, eye (as a model of neuronal cells), heart, kidney (as a m..
