Salugen to Present Research on Generational Associations of Reward Deficiency Syndrome at XVth World Congress on Psychiatric Genetics

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Salugen, Inc., a personalized health and wellness company will present its research entitled: Generational Association Studies of Dopaminergic Genes (DRD1, DRD2, DAT1, & DBH) In Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS): A Paradigm Shift In Selecting Appropriate Phenotypes For Reward Dependence Behaviors at the XVth World Congress on Psychiatric Genetics October 7 - 11, 2007 in New York City, NY.

Dr. Kenneth Blum, Chief Scientific Officer of Salugen will discuss the generational association of genes associated with Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS). Numerous studies have revealed an association between certain dopaminergic gene polymorphisms and a number of reward dependent behaviors including addictive, compulsive and impulsive tendencies. These interrelated reward-dependent behaviors involving dopaminergic genes have been classified as RDS.

Additionally, he will present findings corresponding to multi-factorial phenotypes associated with the genes including ADHA, alcoholism, cocaine dependence, intravenous drug dependence, carbohydrate binging, smoking, hyperactivity, sex addiction, pathological violence, Tourette Syndrome, autism, and other personality disorders in an experimental group of 55 subjects derived from up to five generations of two independent multiple- affected families.

Salugen CEO Brian Meshkin states, "We are pleased to present Salugen's continued research on RDS. These findings aid us in furthering the clinical application of the research to assist those with a genetic predisposition to conditions associated with RDS."

Salugen currently markets DNA-customized nutritional solutions under three brands, GenoTrim(TM) for weight management (, SpaGen(TM) for optimal health and wellness ( and Haveos(TM) for substance abuse attenuation.
