Abstergo’s contribution to medical neuroscience research has led to a discovery that a certain molecule made by the gene SAT1 may be linked to suicide. Subjects with a higher tendency to exhibit suicidal behavior showed elevated levels of the gene SAT1, a gene involved with cell death. During testing, several biological molecules in the blood of our subjects changed including the SAT1 gene.
Right now doctors rely on people telling them their feelings and symptoms to detect suicide. With the development of a blood test doctors will be able to detect clients in immediate danger. See the full research, published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.
