19. Genetics play key role in risk for schizophrenia

from Psych Central

From Oct. 10: New research suggests as much as 79 percent of schizophrenia risk may be explained by genetic factors. Investigators at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark discovered the strong link between genetics and risk for the disorder from the largest study of twins in schizophrenia research to date. The study used a new statistical approach to address a major factor that contributes to inconsistencies across previous studies. That is, studies of heritability usually require that people be classified as either having schizophrenia or not, but this presumption is not totally correct as some people at risk could still develop the disease after the study ends. more
