We carried out a genome-wide association study of schizophrenia (479 cases, 2,937 controls) and tested loci with P <10-5 in up to 16,726 additional subjects. Of 12 loci followed up, 3 had strong independent support (P <5 10-4), and the overall pattern of replication was unlikely to occur by chance (P = 9 10-8). Meta-analysis provided strongest evidence for association around ZNF804A (P = 1.61 10-7) and this strengthened when the affected phenotype included bipolar disorder (P = 9.96 10-9).
