Date:7/1/2009

h schizophrenia are somewhat more likely to get this chronic, debilitating brain disorder. It usually begins in adolescence or early adulthood, and is characterized by hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking and behavior, and loss of interest and initiative. Chronic impairment in social functioning remains the more prevalent disease course, even with treatment.” Dr. Sanders further noted that, “Unlike the European ancestry only samples of the companion papers, the MGS sample also includes an African American (AA) subsample comprised by over 2,200 individuals. The AA GWAS results supported previously reported schizophrenia associations for the genes, ERBB4 on chromosome 2q34 and its ligand, neuregulin (NRG1 on chromosome 8p12).

The NorthShore team expects to continue to generate knowledge aimed at this goal of better therapeutics, such as more specific and effective medications with fewer side effects.
The studies were led, respectively, by Drs. Pablo V. Gejman of NorthShore University HealthSystem (MGS, the Molecular Genetics of Schizophrenia collaboration), Pamela Sklar of the Broad Institute (ISC, the International Schizophrenia Consortium), and Kari Stefansson of deCODE Genetics (SGENE, the Schizophrenia Gene consortium).

The MGS study was supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (multiple grants), the Paul Michael Donovan Charitable Foundation, NorthShore University HealthSystem the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, the Genetic Association Information Network (GAIN, and the National Center for Research Resources
