Reference Statistical Values/Author Comments Result of Statistical Analysis
Choudhry, Z.,2013 In the total sample, FTO SNP rs8050136 was marginally associated with ADHD diagnosis (P=0.05).This study also shows a stronger association of the A allele of FTO rs8050136 polymorphism with ADHD-relevant traits in the subgroup of ADHD children whose mothers did not smoke during pregnancy. Significant
Albayrak O., 2013 No significant association was reported in this study. Non-significant
