Reference Statistical Values/Author Comments Result of Statistical Analysis
Brookes K, 2006 UNPHASED TDT P-value=0.039, global P-value=0.389, WHAP TDT P_sum P-value=0.798; OR=1.2, one or more SNPs with nominal P-value<0.05 located in this gene Significant
Brookes KJ, 2006(a) 1 SNP showed significant association in both case-control and within-family analyses, which are suggestive of an association between FADS2 and ADHD Significant
Mick E, 2010 Gene-based set test P-value=0.047. Significant gene-based set tests of association with selected candidates, but contains no significant or Trend associated SNPs. Significant
