Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The authors used the family study method to test the hypothesis that sodium lactate response defines two subtypes of panic disorder.

METHOD:

Rates of panic disorder in 142 first-degree relatives of patients who responded to sodium lactate, 88 first-degree relatives of patients who did not respond to sodium lactate, and 231 first-degree relatives of never mentally ill subjects were compared.

RESULTS:

No difference in familial transmission of panic disorder was found between the two patient groups.

CONCLUSIONS:

The findings do not support the notion that panic disorder subtypes are associated with lactate sensitivity.
