 Project objective

Identifying factors contributing to treatment-resistance in psychiatric disorders could uncover shared aetiology or used to develop predictive tests to identify patients at risk of poor outcomes. Severe psychiatric disorders–here schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and anorexia nervosa–have an enormous impact on morbidity. Up to 60% have poor outcomes despite adequate treatment. Those with treatment-resistant psychiatric disorders have high rates of mortality, higher health care costs, and are hospitalized longer. Further knowledge on how clinical, demographic, and genomic factors effect treatment-resistance in psychiatry is urgently needed. To date, I am unaware of any systematic assessment of genetic, clinical, and demographic factors associated with treatment-resistance across the 4 previously mentioned disorders simultaneously. Previous genomic studies investigating these disorders evaluated treatment-resistance for one disorder, were limited by small sample sizes, and did not consider a range of risk factors. First, I will investigate whether clinical and demographic factors are associated with treatment-resistant psychiatric disorders using Swedish National register data and whether they differ between disorders (N=20K). Second, I will examine whether different forms of genetic variation are associated with treatment-resistance, using existing samples (N=20K) with genome-wide genotyping, copy number variant, and exome data. Here, I will uncover knowledge about how genetic variation effects treatment-resistance, including shared genetic correlation. Third, I will examine the confounding effects of genetics on clinical and demographic factors for treatment-resistance. Completion of the proposed work could highly impact our understanding of treatment-resistance in psychiatry, and has the potential to reduce morbidity, mortality, and suffering in individuals with these disorders.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "CLINGEN-PSYCHTX" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
