OCD Linked to Brain Inflammation

According to a new study, inflammation in the brain may be a factor with people who have OCD.  Researchers studied brain imaging from patients with and without OCD and found that people with OCD had more inflammation.

The results were clear: in the brain regions associated with OCD, individuals with the disorder had 32 percent more inflammation when compared with people without the condition.

It sounds promising for those with BFRBs since it is believed that BFRBs are related to OCD.
