Additive effect between quinine oxidoreductase gene (NQO1: Pro187Ser) and manganese superoxide dismutase gene (MnSOD: Ala-9Val) polymorphisms on tardive dyskinesia in patients with schizophrenia.Psychiatry Res. 2008 Dec 15; 161(3):336-8.PR
This study investigated whether there was an interaction between the NQO1 Pro187Ser and MnSOD Ala-9Val gene polymorphisms in the development of tardive dyskinesia (TD). The combined genotypes of T/T in NQO1 Pro187Ser and Val/Val in MnSOD Ala-9Val polymorphisms were found to be independently associated with a significantly higher risk of TD. However, further adequately powered studies will be needed to confirm these preliminary findings.
