SNPs on chromosome 3p24.1 showed an association with a response to lithium at genomewide significance . Two SNPs in particular, rs17026688 and rs17026651, which can be found approximately 7.2 kb apart in the introns of the gene encoding glutamate decarboxylase-like protein 1 , showed the strongest associations, with a cutoff point of 5 to 6 . Subsequently, in the first replication cohort, we genotyped rs17026688 and rs17026651, as well as flanking SNPs in GADL1 that showed genomewide significance in the discovery cohort. Both rs17026688 and rs17026651 showed the strongest associations in the check of replication . Among the 24 sufferers in the next replication cohort , both top SNPs were also in complete linkage disequilibrium. The genomewide association study and the follow-up research reached suitable statistical powers of 85 percent and 95 percent, respectively .You will see the complete Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report, search the archives, or sign up for email delivery of in-depth coverage of health policy developments, debates and discussions.
