26016498 Meta-analysis results show no significant association between TSPAN18 gene and schizophrenia in the Han Chinese population indicating the gene is unlikely to be a major susceptibility gene for schizophrenia in this population.
23505562 These results confirm the significant association, in Han Chinese populations, of increased SCZ risk and the variant of the TSPAN18 gene containing the 'A' allele of SNP rs835784.
