- Study on the possible association of brain-derived neurotrophic factor polymorphism with the developmental course of symptoms of attention deficit and hyperactivityOlle Bergman
Department of Pharmacology, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden
Int J Neuropsychopharmacol 14:1367-76. 2011..The results highlight the importance of distinguishing between hyperactivity-impulsivity and inattention, respectively, and demonstrate the value of using a longitudinal approach in genetic studies of ADHD symptoms...
- Preliminary evidence that polymorphisms in dopamine-related transcription factors LMX1A, LMX1B and PITX3 are associated with schizophreniaOlle Bergman
Department of Pharmacology, The Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden
Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry 34:1094-7. 2010..Preliminary evidence that genetic variation in LMX1A (rs6668493, rs4657411), LMX1B (rs10987386) and PITX3 (rs4919621) may increase the risk of developing schizophrenia is presented...
- Cyclooxygenase-2 polymorphisms in Parkinson's diseaseAnna Håkansson
Department of Pharmacology, Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, The Sahlgrenska Academy at Goteborg University, Goteborg, Sweden
Am J Med Genet B Neuropsychiatr Genet 144:367-9. 2007..007). In females no difference could be seen between PD-patients and controls. In conclusion, the results suggest a possible influence of the COX-2 C8473T SNP in PD, although it only seems to be of importance in men...
