English abstract
In this study, we investigated how adversities related to past and present morbidity, and genotype. Forty-two, suicide attempters and 22 matched control patients were followed-up after 13 years. Life-time adversities were explored in an interview, and the patients were reassessed psychiatrically. The serotonin-transporter-linked promotor region (5-HTTLPR) was typed. More adversities were reported by suicide attempters than controls, and by still-ill than recovered suicide attempters. Adversities reported at follow-up were related to psychiatric morbidity at follow-up, but not to morbidity 13 years earlier. The 5-HTTLPR, genotype was associated with reported adversities, but not chances of recovery. Adversities potentially affected chronic morbidity. 5-HTTLPR genotype did not affect long-term recovery.
