Record type: Article


Investigation of the co-occurrence of panic and phobic disorders with joint laxity led to the identification of various forms of interstitial duplications involving human chromosome 15q24-q26 (named "DUP25") in a Spanish population. DUP25 was observed in 68 of 70 (97%) patients assigned the diagnosis panic disorder/agoraphobia. DUP25 was also found in 14 of 189 (7%) control individuals. In the present study, we replicated the experimental conditions described by Gratacòs and colleagues in which fluorescence in situ hybridization was used to examine metaphase chromosomes of patients with panic disorder/social phobia and of control individuals from a southern region of the United Kingdom, the primary aim being to determine the prevalence of this chromosomal rearrangement in a geographically and ethnically distinct population. DUP25 was not observed in any of our 16 patients or 40 control samples or in three previously reported DUP25-positive control (Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Humain) cell lines, indicating a highly significant difference in the frequency of DUP25 between the study by Gratacòs and colleagues and the present investigation.
