MRC Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Center, Institute of Psychiatry, King s College London, London, UK
Pharmacogenomics J 9:225-33. 2009..The single marker associations explained only a small proportion of variance in response to antidepressants, indicating a need for a multivariate approach to prediction...

P080 SGDP, Institute of Psychiatry, King s College London, London SE5 8AF, UK
Br J Psychiatry 195:202-10. 2009..Adverse drug reactions are important determinants of non-adherence to antidepressant treatment, but their assessment is complicated by overlap with depressive symptoms and lack of reliable self-report measures...

Department of Psychology, King s College London, Institute of Psychiatry, London SE5 8AF, UK
Am J Psychiatry 166:1156-61. 2009..It appears to be highly prevalent and to run in families. However, this familiality could be due to genetic or environmental factors. This study examined the prevalence and heritability of compulsive hoarding in a large sample of twins...
