Brief Summary:
We plan to examine genetic polymorphism of catechol-O-methyltransferase in panic disorder and neurobiological changes of panic disorder patients after 12 weeks of pharmacotherapy with paroxetine. We plan to include 40 panic disorder patients and 40 normal control subjects in this study for 3 years.
