Reference Statistical Values/Author Comments Result of Statistical Analysis
Brookes K, 2006 UNPHASED TDT P-value=0.0169, global P-value=0.443, WHAP TDT P_sum P-value=0.162; OR=1.24, one or more SNPs with nominal P-value<0.05 located in this gene Significant
Hawi, Z., 2012 Although suggestive evidence of association (nominal p <= 0.05) with the genes SLC6A2, ADRA1A, ADRA1B and ADRA2B was observed, none remained significant after permutation adjustments. These findings provide evidence of a contribution of the noradrenaline system to the genetic aetiology of ADHD. Significant
Barr CL, 2001(c) no evidence was found for biased transmission of either allele of the ADRA1C polymorphism to the probands in this sample of ADHD families Non-significant
