Abstract

Precision medicine in psychiatry is on the rise, and depression and obesity - two highly prevalent, comorbid and well-characterised phenotypes - are optimal targets for the approach. Add the bedrock susceptibility gene, FTO, and Riviera et al have identified a constellation of factors that could enhance clinical treatment of both disorders.
