OBJECTIVE Several pharmacogenetic studies suggest that response to pharmacotherapy in bipolar disorder may be mediated by genetic factors. The aim of this study was to investigate further the association of the genetic variations of the serotonin transporter (5-HTT) gene with antidepressant-induced mania, already reported in recent studies. We also studied the possible association of these genetic variants with diagnosis expression and treatment response to lithium therapy. METHODS The sample… CONTINUE READING
