Press Briefing Challenges and Clues: The Genetics of Bipolar Disorder Why hasn't a gene for bipolar disorder been identified when clearly the illness affects some families more than others? What is science telling us about who is most vulnerable and how onset of the illness can be prevented? A European study zeros in on the most likely candidate genes, while another study finds an association between an abnormal thyroid condition and bipolar disorder, pointing to the possibility of a simple blood test to identify those who may be at risk.

Participants: J.Raymond DePaulo, Jr., M.D., Johns Hopkins University,
Marion Leboyer, M.D., Ph.D., Paris University Faculty of Medicine, France
