OBJECTIVE A genome-wide association study and several replication studies have shown significant association between BTBD9 gene single nucleotide polymorphisms and restless legs syndrome (RLS). The aim of this study is to investigate the association between the BTBD9 gene polymorphisms and antipsychotic-induced RLS in schizophrenic patients. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) insufficiency has been reported to be related to the tardive dyskinesia (TD) susceptibility. Inada et al. (Pharmacogenet Genomics 2008;18:317-23) identified eight genes belonging to GABA receptor signaling pathway that may be involved in TD susceptibility by genome-wide screening and they replicated associations in(More)
PURPOSE To describe clinical findings in a Korean family with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome. METHODS A retrospective review of clinical data about patients with diagnosed Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome. Five affected members of the family underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination. We screened the forkhead box C1 gene and the pituitary homeobox 2 gene in(More)
PURPOSE To determine the corneal biomechanical properties in eyes with glaucoma using a non-contact Scheimpflug-based tonometer. METHODS Corneal biomechanical responses were examined using a non-contact Scheimpflug-based tonometer. The tonometer parameters of the normal control group (n = 75) were compared with those of the glaucoma group (n = 136),(More)
