- The short allele of the serotonin transporter promoter polymorphism influences relapse in alcohol dependenceEmmanuel Pinto
Department of Psychiatry, University of Liege, CHU Sart Tilman B35, B 4000 Liege, Belgium
Alcohol Alcohol 43:398-400. 2008..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...

- Vasopressin-neurophysin and DST in major depression: relationship with suicidal behaviorWilliam Pitchot
Department of Psychiatry, Psychoneuroendocrinology Unit, University of Liege, CHU of Liege, B 4000 Liege, Belgium
J Psychiatr Res 42:684-8. 2008..29+/-0.13 ng/ml vs 0.36+/-0.21 ng/ml, (F=1.1, df=1, 27, p=0.30). Suicide attempters did not differ from nonattempters for AVP-neurophysins levels. Our results fail to support a role of AVP in the early cortisol escape...

Psychiatric Unit, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sart Tilman, Liege, Belgium
Biol Psychiatry 58:854-8. 2005..Therefore, the aim of our study was to use a neuroendocrine strategy to test the hypothesis of a role for 5-HT1A receptors in the biology of suicidal behavior...
- Event-related potentials to emotional and neutral stimuli in alcoholismMichel Hansenne
Department of Cognitive Sciences, University of Liege, Liege, Belgium
Neuropsychobiology 48:77-81. 2003..Besides, the results imply that information processing was delayed in female alcoholic patients. Therefore this study demonstrates a gender-dependent impact of alcohol-related stimuli on information processing...
