The maldevelopmental theory postulates disturbances in neural development as crucial factors in the aetiopathogenesis of schizophrenia. Neurotrophic factors, including ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), play a central role in the regulation of such development. A mutation has been described for the CNTF gene, whereby subjects homozygous for the mutation(More)
The diagnosis of von Willebrand disease (VWD) remains difficult in a significant proportion of patients. A Spanish multicentre study investigated a cohort of 556 patients from 330 families who were analysed centrally. VWD was confirmed in 480. Next generation sequencing (NGS) of the whole coding VWF was carried out in all recruited patients, compared with(More)
Dopamine receptors have long been implicated in the etiology of schizophrenia. It has been reported an association of schizophrenia with homozygosity at the dopamine D3 receptor gene locus. We have investigated the distribution of a D3 receptor gene polymorphism (BalI) in 107 schizophrenic Spanish patients and 100 healthy matched controls. No statistically(More)
Possible associations between schizophrenic psychoses, a ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) null mutation and a neurotrophin in 3 (NT3) bi-allele polymorphism were investigated in a Spanish population. The sample consisted of 107 patients suffering from schizophrenic psychoses and 100 healthy volunteers. There was no statistical difference in the(More)
