Ion channel genetic biomarkers: diagnostic capabilities in the assessment of bipolar disorder
Background: Bipolar disorder is a commonly misdiagnosed mood disorder. When misdiagnosis occurs, consequences result from improper treatments. Genetic variants have been associated with bipolar disorder, but those variants have yet to help accurately diagnose individuals with the disorder. Aim: This study examined selected single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) previously associated with bipolar disorder to evaluate the potential to use as a diagnostic biomarker. The selected SNPs were used to create a genetic risk score and offer the potential to help differentiate among mood disorder ...
