We examined the occurrence of the -141C Ins/Del polymorphism in 93 Finnish patients with schizophrenia. In comparison with previous studies with Japanese and Caucasian populations, the incidence of this polymorphism was unexpectedly low. The findings suggest that the frequency of the -141C Ins/Del polymorphism is lower in Northern Europe compared to other Caucasian and Japanese populations.
