Renal and hepatotoxicity of diglycolic acid (DGA) has been described with in vitro cellular models as well as in vivo animal and human systems. The possibility of diglycolic acid (DGA) being toxic to other organs, such as the heart, has not been well investigated. A human case report identified the heart as a potential target organ of DGA, but an in-house in vivo rat study neither found gross nor microscopic pathological changes following repeated oral DGA exposure.

In the current study, researchers examined sex differences in cortical and subcortical neuroanatomy in individuals at clinical high risk (CHR) for psychosis and healthy controls (CTL), and the association between anatomy and clinical symptoms in males at CHR. However, little is known about sex differences in the high-risk stages for psychosis.
