  • clinical
  • Although our findings strongly suggest that MMP12 has a role in determining lung function and susceptibility to COPD in high-risk groups, knowledge of the genotype for an MMP12 variant does not add to clinical variables in predicting the onset of COPD. (medpagetoday.com)
  • parental
  • This line of evolutionary argument leads to the prediction that children should vary in their susceptibility to parental rearing and perhaps to environmental influences more generally. (wikipedia.org)
  • Parental history of asthma and child's history of allergic symptoms, sex, and early-life exposure (residence at the same home since 2 years of age) were examined as susceptibility factors. (nih.gov)
  • disease
  • However, during the second half of the 20th century, after radiography became available, it became clear that the extent of disease, radiographic pattern, and individual susceptibility were more important than pregnancy itself in determining the course and prognosis of the disease.

  • This is the first successful analysis of whole genome sequence from a family that revealed a new gene implicated in KD susceptibility," said senior author Jane C. Burns, MD, professor and director of the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. (ucsd.edu)
  • journal
  • The study, "Trends in susceptibility to smoking by race and ethnicity," appears in the journal Pediatrics and was conducted by Dr. El-Toukhy with Melanie Sabado, Ph.D., M.P.H., and Kelvin Choi, Ph.D., M.P.H., all from NIMHD. (nih.gov)
  • study
  • A study of smoking susceptibility among adolescents who had never smoked has found that Hispanics are more susceptible to smoking during their adolescent years than their non-Hispanic White counterparts are. (nih.gov)
  • The susceptibility of Hispanic adolescents peaks at age 12 and again at age 16, according to the study. (nih.gov)
  • The study also found that while there has been a decline in adolescent smoking, susceptibility to smoking has remained steady. (nih.gov)
  • The study focused on youth who had never tried a cigarette and looked at whether there are trends in susceptibility to smoking among different racial and ethnic groups. (nih.gov)
  • common
  • It is widely thought that alleles that influence susceptibility to common diseases, including schizophrenia, will frequently do so through effects on gene expression. (mendeley.com)
  • Investigators have identified a human chromosome containing a specific gene associated with susceptibility to herpes simplex labialis (HSL), the common cold sore. (scienceblog.com)
  • In that report, MS was present in ≈21% of enrolled patients (a number similar to that quoted above for the US population 6 but much higher than previous Japan estimates 2 ), and AF was twice as common in MS patients than in individuals without MS. Similarly, Echahidi et al 10 assessed the relation of MS to AF susceptibility in patients undergoing coronary artery surgery. (ahajournals.org)
  • senior author
  • Remarkably, pharmacologically blocking this immune activation during early life stress prevents the development of the susceptibility to cocaine in adulthood," said senior author Valeria Carola, PhD. Mice who received an antibiotic to prevent activation of immune cells during social stress did not have cellular changes or drug-seeking behavior. (elsevier.com)

  • The differential susceptibility hypothesis proposed by Jay Belsky is another interpretation of psychological findings that are usually discussed according to the diathesis-stress model . (wikipedia.org)
