- We investigated whether the clinical response to aripiprazole differed according to the Taq1A polymorphism in the dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) gene. In this 26-week, prospective, open-label, double-blind, parallel-group study, 90 patients with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or schizophreniform disorder were recruited and divided into two groups according to their DRD2 genotype (A1A1, n=14; A1A2+A2A2, n=76). The efficacy assessment included Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) scores and Clinical Global Impression (CGI) scores. Extrapyramidal symptoms were assessed using the Simpson-Angus Scale (SAS), Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS), and Barnes Akathisia Rating Scale (BAS). Plasma prolactin levels were also measured. Patients with the A1A1 genotype showed a more favorable therapeutic response to aripiprazole when assessed using the PANSS ratio. The changes in the SAS score from baseline to week 4 also differed according to the genotype group. There were no significant differences in the changes in the CGI, AIMS, and BAS scores or plasma prolactin level between the two genotype groups. The results suggest an association between the DRD2 Taq1A polymorphism status and the variation in the clinical response to aripiprazole.
