In the above study schizophrenia was linked with many issues including atopic dermatitis and asthma and negatively correlated with several diagnosis, breast cancer, aortic aneurysm, ALS, and acidosis as examples.
Here there was a link with atopic dermatitis and asthma with schizophrenia and an inverse correlation with urticaria and allergic rhinitis.
Back to the COMT val/met gene, there may be a role for that in the schizophrenia connections. As to novelty seeking, it is well studied as to gene linkages so worth looking at but clearly not linked to the NPA system except as a possible modifier. I was hoping to see if sanguine habitancies show different findings for the COMT val/met gene as to personality traits.
