Evidence has supported a role for serotonin system dysfunction in the pathogenesis of the obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Many studies examined the association between OCD and a functional polymorphism of the serotonin transporter gene promoter (5-HTTLPR) but yielded inconsistent results. Current study aimed to determine conclusively whether there is an association by using a meta-analytic method. Over 3000 subjects from 13 independent case-control association studies were included in the… Expand
