Abstract

Variability in antidepressant response is due to genetic and environmental factors. Among genetic factors, the ones controlling for availability of the drug at the target site are interesting candidates. Rs6295C/G SNP in the 5-HT1A gene (HTR1A) has been found to affect the expression and function of HTR1A. In fact rs6295C/G is in strong linkage disequilibrium with other polymorphisms of HTR1A suggesting that those functional effects could be associated with polymorphisms other than or together with the synonymous rs6295C/G. In the present study we examined the possible association of a panel of markers in strong linkage disequilibrium of HTR1A with SSRI/SNRI response in 137 Japanese major depression subjects followed for 6 weeks. We observed a significant association of better response to antidepressant in rs10042486C/C (P < 0.0001), rs6295G/G (P < 0.0001) and rs1364043T/T (P = 0.018) genotype carriers, independently from clinical variables. Furthermore minor allele homozygous carriers in all these 3 SNPs were associated with treatment response by various assessments such as HAM-D score change over time (P = 0.001), week 2 (P < 0.0001), 4 (P = 0.007), and 6 (P = 0.048) as well as response rate (P = 0.0005) and remission rate (P = 0.004). We also pointed out the genotyping mis-definition of rs6295C/G in the previous four papers.
