(2/5457) Analysis of affected sib pairs, with covariates--with and without constraints.

Covariate models have previously been developed as an extension to affected-sib-pair methods in which the covariate effects are jointly estimated with the degree of excess allele sharing. These models can estimate the differences in sib-pair allele sharing that are associated with measurable environment or genes. When there are no covariates, the pattern of identical-by-descent allele sharing in affected sib pairs is expected to fall within a small triangular region of the potential parameter space, under most genetic models. By restriction of the estimated allele sharing to this triangle, improved power is obtained in tests for genetic linkage. When the affected-sib-pair model is generalized to allow for covariates that affect allele sharing, however, new constraints and new methods for the application of constraints are required. Three generalized constraint methods are proposed and evaluated by use of simulated data. The results compare the power of the different methods, with and without covariates, for a single-gene model with age-dependent onset and for quantitative and qualitative gene-environment and gene-gene interaction models. Covariates can improve the power to detect linkage and can be particularly valuable when there are qualitative gene-environment interactions. In most situations, the best strategy is to assume that there is no dominance variance and to obtain constrained estimates for covariate models under this assumption.  (+info)

(3/5457) Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model.

A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed.  (+info)

(4/5457) Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications.

A conceptual framework showing the household and social implications of food insecurity was elicited from a qualitative and quantitative study of 98 households from a heterogeneous low income population of Quebec city and rural surroundings; the study was designed to increase understanding of the experience of food insecurity in order to contribute to its prevention. According to the respondents' description, the experience of food insecurity is characterized by two categories of manifestations, i.e., the core characteristics of the phenomenon and a related set of actions and reactions by the household. This second category of manifestations is considered here as a first level of consequences of food insecurity. These consequences at the household level often interact with the larger environment to which the household belongs. On a chronic basis, the resulting interactions have certain implications that are tentatively labeled "social implications" in this paper. Their examination suggests that important aspects of human development depend on food security. It also raises questions concerning the nature of socially acceptable practices of food acquisition and food management, and how such acceptability can be assessed. Guidelines to that effect are proposed. Findings underline the relevance and urgency of working toward the realization of the right to food.  (+info)

(5/5457) Identification of a C/G polymorphism in the promoter region of the BRCA1 gene and its use as a marker for rapid detection of promoter deletions.

Reduced expression of BRCA1 has been implicated in sporadic breast cancer, although the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon remain unclear. To determine whether regulatory mutations could account for the reduced expression, we screened the promoter region by sequencing in 20 patients with sporadic disease. No mutations were detected; however, a new polymorphism consisting of a C-to-G base change within the beta-promoter was identified, with the frequency of the G allele being 0.34. Close to complete linkage disequilibrium was found between this marker and the Pro871 Leu polymorphism, situated in exon 11, which has previously been shown not to be associated with breast or ovarian cancer. This indicates that the C/G polymorphism is also unlikely to play a role in either disease. However, the strength of linkage disequilibrium between these markers permitted their use for rapid screening for genomic deletions within BRCA1. A series of 214 cases with familial breast cancer were analysed using this approach; 88/214 were heterozygous for the promoter polymorphism, thereby excluding a deletion in this region. Among the remaining patients, one hemizygous case reflecting a promoter deletion was successfully identified. Therefore, this study indicates that deletions within the beta-promoter region of BRCA1 are an uncommon event in familial breast cancer. Furthermore, it suggests that mutations within the BRCA1 promoter are unlikely to account for the reported decreased expression of BRCA1 in sporadic disease.  (+info)

(6/5457) High frequency of germ-line BRCA2 mutations among Hungarian male breast cancer patients without family history.

To determine the contribution of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations to the pathogenesis of male breast cancer in Hungary, the country with the highest male breast cancer mortality rates in continental Europe, a series of 18 male breast cancer patients and three patients with gynecomastia was analyzed for germ-line mutations in both BRCA1 and BRCA2. Although no germ-line BRCA1 mutation was observed, 6 of the 18 male breast cancer cases (33%) carried truncating mutations in the BRCA2 gene. Unexpectedly, none of them reported a family history for breast/ovarian cancer. Four of six truncating mutations were novel, and two mutations were recurrent. Four patients (22%) had a family history of breast/ovarian cancer in at least one first- or second-degree relative; however, no BRCA2 mutation was identified among them. No mutation was identified in either of the genes in the gynecomastias. These results provide evidence for a strong genetic component of male breast cancer in Hungary.  (+info)

(7/5457) Attitudes, knowledge, and risk perceptions of women with breast and/or ovarian cancer considering testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2.

PURPOSE: This study examined baseline knowledge, beliefs, and risk perceptions among a group of 200 women with breast and/or ovarian cancer who participated in a trial designed to improve decision making about genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Women were identified by self-referral, physician referral, and tumor registry extraction and invited to participate in a randomized trial in which testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 was offered free of charge. Subjects completed baseline questionnaires and interviews that assessed knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of risk of having an alteration in BRCA1 or BRCA2. RESULTS: Sixty percent of women overestimated their chances of having a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation compared with estimates from a BRCA1/BRCA2 risk model. Women who have at least three relatives with breast or ovarian cancer were one third (95% confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.6) as likely to overestimate their risk of having a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation compared with women who have two or fewer affected relatives. Knowledge was limited about BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations and cancer risk associated with gene mutations. Eighty-four percent of the women indicated a probable or definite interest in testing. CONCLUSION: A high proportion of the high-risk women in this study had knowledge deficits about BRCA1 and BRCA2 and overestimated their risk of having a mutation. Although some degree of caution should be used in generalizing the results of this study to practice settings, the data provide insight into the challenges clinicians will face in communicating with patients about cancer genetics.  (+info)

(8/5457) Awareness of and attitude of elderly subjects regarding health care and welfare in rapidly ageing population in Japan.

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to obtain information on the degree of knowledge and understanding about the current systems of health care and welfare held by the elderly, in order to achieve comprehensiveness in family practice. METHOD: We conducted a study on the awareness of healthy elderly persons by direct interview. The study was carried out in Kuni Village in a remote mountainous region in Japan, where the elderly population accounts for 24.8% of the total population. The subjects were self-dependent in their daily living activities and were aged 65 years and older. RESULTS: The subjects' knowledge of health care and welfare systems was generally good, and the degree of their utilization of these systems was also good. But 83.3% of those who did not want to utilize the welfare system indicated their preference to depend on their family for support. CONCLUSION: Family physicians must endeavour to offer comprehensive care to their patients by including these systems for rapidly ageing communities.  (+info)

family! :)?

  • My big sister's recently had a gorgeous baby Isabelle Prairie (we call her Elsie) and her and her current boyfriend (not Elsie's father) are considering having more children...which has made me get all excited and start thinking about all the names which could sound so cute together! What names do you think go best with Isabelle Prairie (Elsie)? I like: Coralie Rosemary (Romey for short) Isla Maisy Claire Mary Ophelia Hero Scarlett Harry Aaron Penn Joseph Connor Theo If you could pick like a family of 3 or 4 ish out of those names or any others like that what would they be? (((Also if you want to add what you think of each of the names I've mentioned that would be helpful??)))
  • Isabelle Prairie is very nice, and I love the nickname Elsie! There are some very nice names on that list, too. As siblings I like: Isabelle Prairie "Elsie" Theodore Joseph "Theo" Scarlett Isla "Lettie" Henry Connor "Harry" Ophelia Claire "Phelie" - My cousin's name Margaret Coralie "Maisy" That would be a beautifully named family! I prefer Theo, Harry and Maisy as nicknames, so I've done full names there. I also think Adelaide "Addie", Matilda "Tildie", Florence "Flo", Beatrix "Bea", Arthur "Artie", August "Gus", Archibald "Archie", Millicent "Millie", Eleanora "Nell/Nora", Emmeline "Emmie" and Benjamin "Benji" would go nicely.

My family is against abortion and i am considering getting one what to do?

  • I am planning on making an appointment for an abortion but my family is against abortion. I was going to get the abortion and tell my family i had a miscourage. However, my sister is a sergical tech and is very familiar with hospitals and the things that go on and being she knows so much pertaining to medical things i think she will know i got an abortion.
  • Hello, I just want to share with you what the effects of having an abortion are, and what can truly happen. I know, as I have had one. I regret this decision more than anything, and I wish I could go back and undo it. I didn't listen to my heart, and or what I wanted to do. I let others influence me, and my choice. I want to tell you, please consider all of the aspects before you commit to doing this. I never thought I would regret it, and or that it would affect my life. It did and still does to this very day. I just recently had to seek help for it, as I couldn't deal with it anymore. I didn't realize why my life had kept on turning to a downward spiral for 6 years. I know now it was because of my abortion. I went into a deep hidden depression. I became angry, bitter, hateful, sad, ashamed, embarassed etc. I literally almost died because of my actions. I truly went through a rough time. And I am still to this day struggling to forgive myself. Abortion to me, won't fix anything or take anything away, it will only make things worse, and when I say worse, I truly mean worse. Do not by any means let anyone influence you or your decision. Whatever you choose to do, it has to be soley up to you. I had people tell me that it was nothing but a bunch of cells. Well, that's not true, it is indeed a child, and it is real. I have done numerous researches on this, and finally learned the truth. The earlier you do it, does not mean the better! I wish that I could go back and undo what I did. It is truly a regret, and it did not help me or my life. It destroyed me. No matter how angry, upset, irritated people act, or say around you, the decision has to be yours and yours alone. I'm sorry to say that, but it's true. If you and your husband for whatever reason don't want another child, maybe you could consider the option of adoption. That's what I wanted, but my bf at the time left me no choice. He wasn't for adoption and we were in no place to raise a baby, and I tried to go for adoption, and in the end, I let others infuence me, and I hate myself for it. You can't listen to other people. You have to follow your heart. I am not going to tell you what to do one way or the other, I am just trying to let you know what happens on the other side. Please take the time and consider these things. Abortion is real, and the group I'm in for help, we've all had abortions and every one of us regrets our decisions. My guilt and that didn't come out to a head until years later, and the turmoil hell that I went through, well, lets just say I could have prevented it. I wish more than anything I could have given my baby up for adoption. And that talk about it just being a bunch of cells, no! Don't believe that. Ask any doctor. It's not true. The baby's do feel pain, and my baby had a heart beat when he or she passed. I didn't know, and I am deeply angry for being uneducated. Just thought I'd share, I'd hate to see another woman go through what I have been through. It's not worth it. I live sure, but my life will never be the same, and I will never forget my baby!

How much does your family spend on food and household supplies?

  • I am wondering how much other families spend on food and household supplies, where they shop, and how big there family is? I have a family of 5 its Me, My hubby, 2 Sons who are 9 and 6, and my little girl who is 20 months old. I shop at Bj's wholesale club, Bi lo, and Dollar General for food. I shop at Bj's and Dollar General for household supplies.I spend 500 a month on food and 140 a month on household supplies.
  • I spend about 650 for both food and household supplies for a family with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Some months I do spend more - for instance, that budget does not include special holiday treats like baby back ribs that we are having tomorrow. I eliminated a lot of 'conveniences' in both food and household supplies as they just keep sucking on the budget. I shop at Cub and Target for most things.

What should I make for family dinner, for my inlaws and my family?

  • My family is very health conscience. My husband's family likes the greasy southern food. Fried chicken, collard greens kind of things. How can I come up with a menu that makes everyone happy? Without me being in the kitchen forever.
  • How about a little something for everyone? A scrumptious salad? Bean salads? I do not know just what makes up Southern cuisine besides grits n stuff so forgive my ignorance. But methinks pork innards are not something you should be dealing with! A good old barbeque with ribs n sauce. Let them have their greasy meats, you stick to what pleases you. Let the guys bond over the fire, they love to do that stuff. Let your man give you some clues, and perhaps offer to do this part. Potatoes in any way shape or form but fried. Is fresh corn available yet? With so much summer goodness available, celebrate the season with good summer foods that are seasonal. Remember, carrying a grandbaby can get you a LOT of brownie points! You might be able to even serve them a healthy meal if you remind them that you are concerned about what you eat considering your "condition". To be honest, in the summer, how can one NOT just live off the best fresh produce around? As for a desert, something that will go over big like a big old barrel of ice cream and sauce or fruit or pie or something special that his momma or poppa is extra fond of? Good luck!

What family planning methods did you use after your first baby?

  • What type of family planning method did you use after you had your first baby. After being on the pill and going off for a while because you wanted to get pregnant, and then you finally got pregnant, what methods of birth control should/would/did you chose after having the baby? How long should you wait to have another baby?
  • I was not on the pill before I got pregnant with my first child, my husband and I had used condoms. After I had my son I got the depo shot. It worked well, I didn't get any periods and didn't get pregnant either. I went off the depo when my son was about 18 or 19 months old, but was not able to get pregnant again until he was 3 yrs old. After I had my daughter I have not gone on any birth control, once again my husband and I use condoms. My kids are 7 and 3. I like the almost 4 yrs apart in age with my kids. I want another child now, but hubby wants to wait which is fine with me. You really shouldn't get pregnant too soon after having your child, it is very hard on your body. And breast feeding is NOT a reliable form of birth control, I have a friend who had a baby in Jan, then one again in Dec of the same year. All because she belived that if she was breast feeding she could not get pregnant. Good Luck!!!

What family friendly dishes do you put on your Thanksgiving table?

  • Thanksgiving is a time for family, entertaining and great food! Tell us what you prepare for your kids and do they help you in the kitchen?
  • Some kid favorites: 1. Sweet potatoes prepared with marshmallows, butter, and brown sugar. They can even help make these... and they are definitely a favorite for kids in my family. Another option would be sweet potato french fries. 2. You could also do a mac and cheese as a side.... if you want to give it more of a Thanksgiving feel, you could add some butternut squash to the mac and cheese. The kids won't even notice the squash. 3. For dessert... most kids (that I know) stay away from pumpkin pie..... but you can fool them into loving pumpkin with some pumpkin cupcakes with a maple cream cheese frosting. Apple cupcakes work here too with a . Give the kids butter knives or spoons and let them frost their own cupcakes! 4. You can include apple cider "spiked" for the adults and "virgin" for the kids, as long as you remember which is which! 5. Put some raw veggie platters with ranch dip to keep your kids busy during appetizers. Deviled eggs are also yummy for the kids. Spinach dip as well, and the kids can help mix this. And I've never met a child that didn't love mashed potatoes (let them help mash) or stuffing! (Add some bacon to either and your kids will love you even more) My family is Italian, and before the turkey we always eat homemade manicotti. And what kid doesn't love pasta stuffed with cheese!
