ACTION project want develop novel diagnostic tools of treatment and prevention strategies for pediatric aggressive behavior. ACTION is built on interrelated work packages with a focus on a) clinical epidemiology and current classification and treatment problems; b) genetic epidemiology, including Genome Wide Association studies and epigenetics; c) gene-environment correlation and interaction; d) biomarkers and metabolomics. ACTION will develop novel with new insights into the effects of gender, age, and comorbidity, will provide guidance in delivering new biological targets to pave the way for novel therapeutic interventions, will provide a decision tree to guide personalised intervention programmes (on the basis of genetic susceptibility and epigenetic factors) and will have sustained impact on reducing paediatric aggression. Gools of the research: collect and examination of the samples with 1H-NMR.
