SILVA I, Hernán et al. Fluoxetine response and serotonin transporter polymorphism in borderline personality disorders. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2010, vol.48, n.1, pp.29-37. ISSN 0717-9227.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-92272010000200004.

Introduction: Impulsiveness and aggressiveness are characteristics of borderline personality disorders. Aggressive and impulsive behaviors are associated to a serotoninergic system dysfunction and are treated with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRJs). The short (S) allele of the serotonin transporter promoter (5-HTTPR) gene is associated to a worse response to SSRI in major depression. The objective of this work is to study the anti-impulsive effect of fluoxetine and his relation with short and long alleles of 5-HTTPR gene in borderline personality disordered patients. Method: 59 patients with DSM-IV borderline personality disorder were treated with fluoxetine for 12 weeks. Impulsivity was evaluated with the Overt Aggression Scale Modified (OAS-M). Polymorphisms L and S of the 5-HTTPR gene were determined. Results: S carriers (LS and SS) had a significantly minor response on OAS-M and Aggression subscale than LL carriers. Conclusions: S allele of the 5-HTTPR gene predicts poor response to anti-impulsive effect of fluoxetine in borderline personality disorder. It is likely that multiple genes contribute to a SSRI response.
