COMT rs4680 and Placebo Response

Postby Matisse » Wed Apr 29, 2015 12:17 pm

From a new study:

"Patients homozygous for the rs4680 low-activity met allele (met/met), known to have high levels of dopamine, had the greatest placebo response. The high-activity val allele homozygous (val/val) patients had the lowest placebo response."

Met/met is AA. Val/val is GG.

Here's a link to the article.
