Short communication: Genetic association between schizophrenia and cannabis use.

Previous studies have shown a relationship between schizophrenia and cannabis use. As both traits are substantially heritable, a shared genetic liability could explain the association. We use two rece...

A Cross-Validation Design Using Age and HLA Alleles for the Assessment of Clinical Schizophrenia Risk.

Schizophrenia (SCH) is a highly heritable disease that occurs mostly in young adults. Genetic factors usually play important roles in the onset of SCH. Human leukocyte antigen complex (HLA) genes are ...
