NCT00319904
First received: April 27, 2006
Last updated: March 16, 2016

  Purpose
We will collect DNA from 500 rigorously diagnosed patients with schizophrenia to allow us in the future to examine phenotypic subtypes in relation to genetic variants. Phenotypes will include subgroups based on clinical symptoms, medication response, or other biological markers including neuroimaging or pharmacologic challenges.

Condition
Schizophrenia

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • phenotypic subtypes in relation to genetic variants [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will collect DNA from 500 patients with schizophrenia to examine phenotypic subtypes in relation to genetic variants. Phenotypes will include subgroups based on clinical symptoms, medication response, or other biological markers including neuroimaging or pharmacologic challenges.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
DNA is extracted and stored for future anaysis of genes that may be associated with schizophrenia
