Objectives: Our aims were to confirm the relationship between lipid and lipoprotein concentrations and suicidal behaviour in first episode psychosis (FEP) patients. Methods: Suicidal behaviour was explored in a large FEP sample (N = 383). Baseline lipid profile was compared between those who attempted or completed suicide and those who not presented suicidal behaviour. Results: Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) (OR = 0.99, 95% CI= 0.98-1.00) and depressive symptoms (OR = 1.15, 95% CI
more » ... (OR = 1.15, 95% CI = 1.06-1.24) were significantly related with suicidal behaviour. Conclusions: Lipid profile test may be considered in the assessment of suicide risk in psychosis and LDL-c an important biological marker.
