15. 25 (McGuffin et al. 1983; Chadda et al. 1986; Goldin et al. 1987; Andrew et al. 1987). Negative results were also obtained when 'model free' affected sib-pair methods were employed to analyse the data. This suggests that misspecification of the mode of inheritance of the main trait did not account for the negative results. In addition further statistical analysis of the pooled data provided no support for the suggestion that there may be two forms of schizophrenia, one linked and the other unlinked to HLA (McGuffin 1988).

The approach then is simply to investigate whether a particular marker allele is more common in a sample of schizophrenic individuals than in healthy controls. We will return to consider association studies later but for the most part we will concentrate on linkage studies of schizophrenia. These are more difficult to perform since they require the study of families rather than of unrelated individuals; however, it may be argued that they are easier to interpret than association studies and they certainly offer greater prospects for rapid advance since the aim is to detect genes of major effect.
