Abstract

BackgroundThere are many studies with different results that examine the association between Catechol-O-MethylTransferase (COMT) gene single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and schizophrenia. In this study, the aim was to conduct a meta-analysis to achieve a pooled effect size of the association between COMT gene rs165599 SNP and schizophrenia.
