The study, which is still ongoing, also provided support for a separate Phase 2/3 trial of a targeted treatment for the neurodevelopmental disorder.

The international team of researchers also examined the genetic ties between personality traits and psychiatric disorders.

The Geisinger Health System team found 241 genes, including 17 new ones, which could be related to autism, schizophrenia, and other disorders.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Neuropsychiatric molecular diagnostics firm Assurex today said that it has secured a $25 million credit facility and $7 million in investments.
The funds will be used to increase clinical adoption of the Mason, Ohio-based firm's GeneSight products.

AssureRx Launches GeneSightRx ADHD
AssureRx Health this week launched a pharmacogenetic test, called GeneSightRx ADHD, for characterizing patients' response to a variety of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs.

Researchers using exome sequencing to study ADHD found rare mutations they think may be causing a patient's anemia, raising the question of how to handle unrelated findings in sequencing studies.

By sequencing a pair of serotonin biosynthesis genes in hundreds of Norwegian individuals, researchers have identified mutations in mothers' serotonin genes that appear to bump up their children's chances of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms.
