A recent UCL study has highlighted the genes in schizophrenia and obesity to help understand DNA variants that affect the risk of developing both conditions. The researchers analyzed over one million gene variants in over 2,000 research subjects who either had schizophrenia or were obese. Researchers highlighted gene variants which commonly occurred in both schizophrenia and obesity.

Lead researcher, Professor David Curtis, said, “Schizophrenia and obesity represent huge public health problems. Both conditions have a substantial genetic contribution, which is at present poorly understood. This study illustrates the way that genetic sequencing technology can help us to make progress in this area.”
