Diagnosis of Schizophrenia in Latino Populations. A Comparison of Direct Interview and Consensus Based Multi-Source Methods
(Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease 2009;197: 530–535, 2009-07)
We determined the rates of agreement between diagnoses, using the Diagnostic Interview for Genetic Studies (DIGS) and diagnoses arrived at, using additional sources of information, to establish whether there are differences ...
Heritability of Age of Onset of Psychosis in Schizophrenia
(AMERICAN JOURNAL OF MEDICAL GENETICS PART B, 2009-04)
Schizophrenia is a genetically complex illness with heterogeneous clinical presentation, including variable age ofonset. In this study, the heritability, or proportion of variation in age of onset of psychotic symptoms due ...
The serotonin transporter 5-HTTPR polymorphism is associated with current and lifetime depression in persons with chronic psychotic disorders
(Acta Psychiatr Scand 2009: 119: 117–127, 2009-01-11)
Objective: Variation in the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) promoter region has been shown to influence depression in persons who have been exposed to a number of stressful life events. Method: We evaluated whether ...
The epsin 4 gene is associated with psychotic disorders in families of Latin American origin
(Schizophrenia Research vol. 106, num 2 (2008) 253–257, 2008-10-20)
This study attempted to replicate evidence for association of the Epsin 4 gene (which encodes enthoprotin, a protein involved in vesicular transport) to schizophrenia in a new sample of families segregating schizophrenia ...
A schizophrenia gene locus on chromosome 17q21 in a new set of families of mexican and central american ancestry: evidence from the NIMH genetics of schizophrenia in latino populations study
(Am J Psychiatry 2009;166:442-449, 2009-02-02)
The present study investigated a new set of families of Latin American ancestry in order to detect the location of genes predisposing to schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Method: A genome-wide scan was performed ...
