The short allele of the serotonin transporter promoter polymorphism influences relapse in alcohol dependence.

Abstract

AIMS The short (S) allele of the serotonin transporter gene promoter polymorphism (5-HTTLPR) contributes to the risk of alcohol dependence and co-occurring clinical features. We studied the putative link between this allele and relapse. METHODS 48 alcohol-dependent male patients were recruited and genotyped for the 5-HTTLPR. Relapse to alcohol drinking… (More)
