rs11983225 is a SNP in the ABCB1 gene (also known as the MDR1 gene), which encodes a protein that transports certain molecules across the blood-brain barrier. SNPs in ABCB1 may thus influence the intracerebral concentrations of certain drugs and their efficacy or potential for adverse side effects. However, the link between the increased brain concentrations of antidepressants and a clinically significant response is unconfirmed. In clinic, even the lower concentrations of drugs may achieve sufficient antidepressant effect, and the dose of the drug can be adjusted upwards until the patient responds. According to a recent review [PMID 27918249], ten studies reported that ABCB1 SNPs have clinical effect in depression and eight that they do not.


rs11983225 is one of 9 SNPs found within a tight linkage block (r2 >= 0.8 ) such that the minor allele at any one of them predicts (with ~80%+ accuracy) that the other SNPs will also be the minor allele. The list of the 9 SNPs is shown below.

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 rs11983225(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
