Abstract

The antipsychotic drug olanzapine may be subject to postmortem redistribution. This complicates the toxicological evaluation in postmortem cases and a supplementary analysis of brain tissue may be an advantage. We report reference brain and blood concentrations of olanzapine from 40 forensic autopsy cases. Each case was assigned to one of three groups according to the cause of death: (A) fatal intoxication by olanzapine alone; (B) fatal intoxication by olanzapine in combination with other drugs and (C) olanzapine was not related to the cause of death.
