Abstract

60 schizophrenics from the area of Lyons treated with tricyclic antidepressants besides the usual neuroleptics, divided into 2 groups on the basis of favorable or unfavorable clinical response, were examined. The 'A' antigen in the so-called 'antidepressant non-responders' schizophrenic group and the 'O' antigen in the 'antidepressant responders' occurred significantly more frequently. The 'O' 'antidepressant responders' were found 3.25 times more frequently than the 'O' 'antidepressant non-responders'. The authors suppose that the 'antidepressant-sensibility' of schizophrenia can be determined genetically.
