When treated for depression with substrates of the protein encoded by ABCB1, carriers of one or two minor alleles at these ABCB1 SNPs have been reported to respond better than non-carriers. The antidepressant drugs that are known to be substrates include citalopram, paroxetine, amitriptyline, and venlafaxine. The relative odds of better response for rs2032583(C) carriers is 7.72 (CI: 2.8-21.3, p=0.000065) based on a study of ~400 primarily Caucasian patients.10.1016/j.neuron.2007.11.017
The 9 SNPs in the linkage block identified are 10.1016/j.neuron.2007.11.017:
[PMID 25487678] Finds that the 6-9 SNPs originally reported as usually being co-inherited showed more independence from one another, with rs2235040 and rs9282564 showing the most power to influence time to remission. Remission rate was higher (69-87%) and achieved sooner for carriers of the minor alleles of these SNPs, yet 43% of major allele homozygotes (i.e. rs2235040(G;G) and rs9282564(A;A) individuals) still achieved remission. Study (97 patients total) primarily involved patients prescribed sertraline but also included some prescribed venlafaxine or escitalopram, which like sertraline are thought to be P-gp substrates.
