We report a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of major depressive disorder (MDD) in 1221 cases from the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) study and 1636 screened controls. No genome-wide evidence for association was detected. We also carried out a meta-analysis of three European-ancestry MDD GWAS data sets: STAR*D, Genetics(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to determine whether clinical response or tolerance to the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) citalopram is associated with genetic polymorphisms in potentially relevant pharmacokinetic enzymes. METHODOLOGY We used a two-stage case-control study design in which we split the sample of 1,953 subjects from the Sequenced(More)
ABT-925, a selective dopamine D3 receptor (DRD3) antagonist, was tested in schizophrenia. A DRD3 gene polymorphism results in an S9G amino-acid change that has been associated with lower risk of schizophrenia, higher affinity for dopamine and some antipsychotics, and differential response to some antipsychotics. The effect of S9G genotype on response to(More)
