    Psychiatry Res 225:395-401. 2015
    ..Furthermore, substance use in schizophrenia was not related to a family history of psychosis. The results suggest that substance use in schizophrenia is an independent risk factor for disease severity and onset. ..

    Berit Kerner
    Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA
    Front Psychiatry 4:154. 2013
    ..Our results support a new model for psychiatric disorders, in which multiple rare, damaging mutations in genes functionally related to a common signaling pathway contribute to the manifestation of bipolar disorder. ..

    ..Linkage disequilibrium (LD) between the two FTO SNPs was strong (D' = 0.997, r2 = 0.875) but their haplotype was not significantly associated with either weight or BMI. The two SNPs near MC4R were in weak LD (D' = 0.487, r2 = 0.166)...
