The placebo effect has long been considered a nuisance and numerous controversies have existed. Nowadays it represents a real field of research, as it does not exist in fact one but many placebo effects with different mechanisms. Also genes exist that are involved in the response to the placebo with one gene in particular really studied: the COMT. According to the different studies, the genetic variation in the dopaminergic, opioid, cannabinoid and serotonergic ducts suggest that the variation in the synthesis, the signaling and the metabolism of these neurotransmitters contribute to the variation of the response to the placebo. Analyzing the placebo effect in the population would allow identifying a proportion of responders to the placebo and therefore being able to exclude them during the clinical tests, in order to avoid bias but also to offer a more effective therapeutics
