This study was conducted to detect a possible association of MAOA and/or MAOB genes with pathological gambling (PG). DNA polymorphisms in MAOA and MAOB genes were screened by molecular analysis in 68 individuals (47 males and 21 females) meeting ICD-10 and DSM-IV criteria for pathological gambling and 68 healthy comparison controls matched for age and sex. There were no significant differences between pathological gamblers and healthy volunteers in overall allele distribution at the MAOA gene… CONTINUE READING
