The Research article to this article has been published in BMC Psychiatry 2005 5:5

The comment in the introduction of our article [1] suggesting that "quetiapine is the only available antipsychotic with significant 5-HT1D effects," is misleading. The affinity of quetiapine for this receptor is low and probably insignificant when compared with some other second generation antipsychotics [2].
