Urine sample was collected from a 29-year-old male patient with an early onset form of DSM-5 obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), comorbid body dysmorphic and excoriation (skin-picking) disorders, and a positive family history for OCD. Urine cell line was established and expanded for the reprogramming procedure. Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells were derived using the integration-free CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit, which includes Sendai virus particles of the four Yamanaka factors Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4 and c-Myc.
