Title of study: 
Adjunctive hormone treatment for men and women with schizophrenia
Brief outline of the study: 

Men and women who are 18+, with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, are invited to take part in a 12-week adjunctive treatment study that is underway in Melbourne. Hormones are known to play a role in the expression of schizophrenia and related disorders. The Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre is investigating whether a medication that targets hormone receptors in the brain, when taken in combination with regular antipsychotic medication, can better improve psychotic symptoms, mood and cognitive functioning. Participants will be reimbursed for their time and travel can be negotiated.
