OCD | Progress Report | Tourette Syndrome/Tic Disorders

Genome-wide association studies of TS and OCD published!

The first genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of Tourette Syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) were published this week in the advance online publications of the journal Molecular Psychiatry.  These studies, which were conducted in parallel, examined the genomes of  thousands of individuals with OCD or TS compared to controls.  Although no statistically significant variants were identified, the studies did identify several potential candidate genes for these related disorders, including some that have been implicated for OCD or TS in previous studies.
