Genetic test for the efficacy of antidepressants in individual patients
Added: 29th Mar 2010

Comment from Marjorie Wallace, chief executive of the mental health charity SANE, on a genetic test for the efficacy of antidepressants in individual patients:

"It would be marvellous if there were a way of identifying those people who responded well to certain psychotropic drugs, while avoiding giving particular drugs to those for whom they might not be effective or cause distressing side effects.

"SANE would encourage any research into finding such a Holy Grail - an effective way of targeting medication to an individual's biochemistry."
