A recent study has suggested a possible association of a polymorphism near the dopamine D5 receptor gene (DRD5) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.1 The polymorphism studied was a (CA)n repeat located in the cosmid containing the D5 receptor gene2 and the allele that was reported to be associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was the 148-bp allele. In this study we sought to replicate this finding by testing for biased transmission of the alleles at this same… CONTINUE READING
