Abstract

Objective: A number of different gene polymorphisms have been found to be involved in the predisposition to development of panic disorder (PD). Previous studies showed that progesterone might play an important role in the psychophysiology of PD. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between two different progesterone receptor gene polymorphisms and agoraphobia, nocturnal panic attacks, and respiratory subtype of PD.
