Many well known genetic loci are also known by common names that are associated with a genetic function or HEREDITARY DISEASE.
An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

Genetic polymorphism and interethnic variability of plasma paroxonase activity. (1/8027)

A method for determining plasma paroxonase activity using an auto-analyser is described. Frequency distributions for British and Indian subjects show bimodality. A study of 40 British families confirms the presence of a genetic polymorphism with regard to plasma paroxonase activity. Two phenotypes can be defined, controlled by two alleles at one autosomal locus. The frequency of the low activity phenotype is less in the Indian population than in the British population. Malay, Chinese, and African subjects fail to show obvious bimodality.  (+info)

Cephalometric abnormalities in non-obese and obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. (2/8027)

The aim of this work was to comprehensively evaluate the cephalometric features in Japanese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and to elucidate the relationship between cephalometric variables and severity of apnoea. Forty-eight cephalometric variables were measured in 37 healthy males and 114 male OSA patients, who were classed into 54 non-obese (body mass index (BMI) <27 kg x m(-2), apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI)=25.3+/-16.1 events x h(-1)) and 60 obese (BMI > or = 27 kg x m(-2), AHI=45.6+/-28.0 events h(-1)) groups. Diagnostic polysomnography was carried out in all of the OSA patients and in 19 of the normal controls. The non-obese OSA patients showed several cephalometric defects compared with their BMI-matched normal controls: 1) decreased facial A-P distance at cranial base, maxilla and mandible levels and decreased bony pharynx width; 2) enlarged tongue and inferior shift of the tongue volume; 3) enlarged soft palate; 4) inferiorly positioned hyoid bone; and 5) decreased upper airway width at four different levels. More extensive and severe soft tissue abnormalities with a few defects in craniofacial bony structures were found in the obese OSA group. For the non-obese OSA group, the stepwise regression model on AHI was significant with two bony structure variables as determinants: anterior cranial base length (S-N) and mandibular length (Me-Go). Although the regression model retained only linear distance between anterior vertebra and hyoid bone (H-VL) as an explainable determinant for AHI in the obese OSA group, H-VL was significantly correlated with soft tissue measurements such as overall tongue area (Ton), inferior tongue area (Ton2) and pharyngeal airway length (PNS-V). In conclusion, Japanese obstructive sleep apnoea patients have a series of cephalometric abnormalities similar to those described in Caucasian patients, and that the aetiology of obstructive sleep apnoea in obese patients may be different from that in non-obese patients. In obese patients, upper airway soft tissue enlargement may play a more important role in the development of obstructive sleep apnoea, whereas in non-obese patients, bony structure discrepancies may be the dominant contributing factors for obstructive sleep apnoea.  (+info)

Laboratory assay reproducibility of serum estrogens in umbilical cord blood samples. (3/8027)

We evaluated the reproducibility of laboratory assays for umbilical cord blood estrogen levels and its implications on sample size estimation. Specifically, we examined correlation between duplicate measurements of the same blood samples and estimated the relative contribution of variability due to study subject and assay batch to the overall variation in measured hormone levels. Cord blood was collected from a total of 25 female babies (15 Caucasian and 10 Chinese-American) from full-term deliveries at two study sites between March and December 1997. Two serum aliquots per blood sample were assayed, either at the same time or 4 months apart, for estrone, total estradiol, weakly bound estradiol, and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Correlation coefficients (Pearson's r) between duplicate measurements were calculated. We also estimated the components of variance for each hormone or protein associated with variation among subjects and variation between assay batches. Pearson's correlation coefficients were >0.90 for all of the compounds except for total estradiol when all of the subjects were included. The intraclass correlation coefficient, defined as a proportion of the total variance due to between-subject variation, for estrone, total estradiol, weakly bound estradiol, and SHBG were 92, 80, 85, and 97%, respectively. The magnitude of measurement error found in this study would increase the sample size required for detecting a difference between two populations for total estradiol and SHBG by 25 and 3%, respectively.  (+info)

A case-control study of risk factors for Haemophilus influenzae type B disease in Navajo children. (4/8027)

To understand the potential risk factors and protective factors for invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease, we conducted a case-control study among Navajo children less than two years of age resident on the Navajo Nation. We analyzed household interview data for 60 cases that occurred between August 1988 and February 1991, and for 116 controls matched by age, gender, and geographic location. The Hib vaccine recipients were excluded from the analyses. Conditional logistic regression models were fit to examine many variables relating to social and environmental conditions. Risk factors determined to be important were never breast fed (odds ratio [OR] = 3.55, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.52, 8.26), shared care with more than one child less than two years of age (OR = 2.32, 95% CI = 0.91, 5.96); wood heating (OR = 2.14, 95% CI = 0.91, 5.05); rodents in the home (OR = 8.18, 95% CI = 0.83, 80.7); and any livestock near the home (OR = 2.18, 95% CI = 0.94, 5.04).  (+info)

Relationship of plasmin generation to cardiovascular disease risk factors in elderly men and women. (5/8027)

Plasmin-alpha2-antiplasmin complex (PAP) marks plasmin generation and fibrinolytic balance. We recently observed that elevated levels of PAP predict acute myocardial infarction in the elderly, yet little is known about the correlates of PAP. We measured PAP in 800 elderly subjects who were free of clinical cardiovascular disease in 2 cohort studies: the Cardiovascular Health Study and the Honolulu Heart Program. Median PAP levels did not differ between the Cardiovascular Health Study (6.05+/-1.46 nmol/L) and the Honolulu Heart Program (6.11+/-1.44 nmol/L), and correlates of PAP were similar in both cohorts. In CHS, PAP levels increased with age (r=0. 30), procoagulant factors (eg, factor VIIc, r=0.15), thrombin activity (prothrombin fragment F1+2, r=0.29), and inflammation-sensitive proteins (eg, fibrinogen, r=0.44; factor VIIIc, r=0.37). PAP was associated with increased atherosclerosis as measured by the ankle-arm index (AAI) (P for trend, +info)

Relative contribution of insulin and its precursors to fibrinogen and PAI-1 in a large population with different states of glucose tolerance. The Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS). (6/8027)

Hyperinsulinemia is associated with the development of coronary heart disease. However, the underlying mechanisms are still poorly understood. Hypercoagulability and impaired fibrinolysis are possible candidates linking hyperinsulinism with atherosclerotic disease, and it has been suggested that proinsulin rather than insulin is the crucial pathophysiological agent. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of insulin and its precursors to markers of coagulation and fibrinolysis in a large triethnic population. A strong and independent relationship between plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) antigen and insulin and its precursors (proinsulin, 32-33 split proinsulin) was found consistently across varying states of glucose tolerance (PAI-1 versus fasting insulin [proinsulin], r=0.38 [r=0.34] in normal glucose tolerance; r=0.42 [r=0.43] in impaired glucose tolerance; and r=0.38 [r=0.26] in type 2 diabetes; all P<0.001). The relationship remained highly significant even after accounting for insulin sensitivity as measured by a frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test. In a stepwise multiple regression model after adjusting for age, sex, ethnicity, and clinic, both insulin and its precursors were significantly associated with PAI-1 levels. The relationship between fibrinogen and insulin and its precursors was significant in the overall population (r=0.20 for insulin and proinsulin; each P<0.001) but showed a more inconsistent pattern in subgroup analysis and after adjustments for demographic and metabolic variables. Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that proinsulin (split products) but not fasting insulin significantly contributed to fibrinogen levels after adjustment for age, sex, clinic, and ethnicity. Decreased insulin sensitivity was independently associated with higher PAI-1 and fibrinogen levels. In summary, we were able to demonstrate an independent relationship of 2 crucial factors of hemostasis, fibrinogen and PAI-1, to insulin and its precursors. These findings may have important clinical implications in the risk assessment and prevention of macrovascular disease, not only in patients with overt diabetes but also in nondiabetic subjects who are hyperinsulinemic.  (+info)

Low-density lipoprotein particle size is inversely related to plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 levels. The Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study. (7/8027)

High levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and preponderance of small dense low-density lipoproteins (LDL) have both been associated with atherosclerotic disease and with the insulin resistance syndrome (IRS). In vitro studies have shown a stimulatory effect of various lipoproteins on PAI-1 release from different cells, including endothelial cells and adipocytes. The authors sought to investigate the relation of PAI-1 to LDL particle size in a large tri-ethnic population (n=1549) across different states of glucose tolerance. LDL size was determined by gradient gel electrophoresis, and PAI-1 was measured by a 2-site immunoassay, sensitive to free PAI-1. PAI-1 was inversely related to LDL size in the overall population (r=-0.21, P<0.0001), independent of gender and ethnicity. However, the authors found a significant interaction with glucose tolerance status (P=0.035). In univariate analysis, the association between PAI-1 and LDL size was most pronounced in subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT, r=-0.22, P<0.0001) and weaker in impaired glucose tolerance (IGT, r=-0.12, P=0.03) and type-2 diabetes (r=-0.10, P=0.02). After adjustment for demographic variables and metabolic variables known to influence PAI-1 levels (triglyceride and insulin sensitivity), a significant inverse relation of LDL size to PAI-1 levels was only present in NGT (P=0. 023). In subjects with IGT or overt diabetes, who usually have elevated PAI-1 levels, additional factors other than LDL size seem to contribute more importantly to PAI-1 levels. The demonstrated inverse relation of LDL size and PAI-1 levels provides one possible explanation for the atherogeneity of small dense LDL particles.  (+info)

Influence of ethnic background on clinical and serologic features in patients with systemic sclerosis and anti-DNA topoisomerase I antibody. (8/8027)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of ethnicity on clinical and serologic expression in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and anti-DNA topoisomerase I (anti-topo I) antibody. METHODS: Clinical and serologic features, as well as HLA class II allele frequencies, were compared among 47 North American white, 15 North American black, 43 Japanese, and 12 Choctaw Native American SSc patients with anti-topo I antibody. RESULTS: The frequency of progressive pulmonary interstitial fibrosis was lower, and cumulative survival rates were better in white compared with black and Japanese patients. Sera of white and black patients frequently recognized the portion adjacent to the carboxyl terminus of topo I, sera of Japanese patients preferentially recognized the portion adjacent to the amino terminus of topo I, and sera of Choctaw patients recognized both portions of topo I. Anti-RNA polymerase II and anti-SSA/Ro antibodies were present together with anti-topo I antibody more frequently in sera of Japanese patients than in sera of white patients. The HLA-DRB1 alleles associated with anti-topo I antibody differed; i.e., DRB1*1101-*1104 in whites and blacks, DRB1*1502 in Japanese, and DRB1*1602 in Choctaws. Multivariate analysis showed that ethnic background was an independent determinant affecting development of severe lung disease as well as survival. CONCLUSION: Clinical and serologic features in SSc patients were strongly influenced by ethnic background. The variability of disease expression in the 4 ethnic groups suggests that multiple factors linked to ethnicity, including genetic and environmental factors, modulate clinical manifestations, disease course, and autoantibody status in SSc.  (+info)

The 9p21 locus, a strong risk locus for coronary arterial disease, has been also associated with other cardiovascular disease including ischemic stroke (IS) in Caucasians. However, the association between 9p21 locus and IS in Chinese Han population is still debatable because of ambiguous results reported previously. Genetic heterogeneity between Southern and Northern Chinese Han populations could be one of the reasons for this uncertainty. Four genetic variants selected from the three conjunctional LD blocks within the 44 kb candidate region on chromosome 9p21 were genotyped in 1,429 IS patients and 1,191 healthy controls from the Northern Chinese Han population. Among the four studied variants, the G allele of the SNP rs2383207 was significantly associated with IS with allele frequency 66.8% in patients and 63.4% in controls. This association appears to be dominant with an OR of 1.417 (p=0.003) for people with either GG or AG genotypes. We did not find any association for the other three SNPs
This study suggests that the APOB polymorphism rs679899 is associated with type 2 diabetes and GGT levels, while the LIPC polymorphism rs6083 may influence CHOL, TG, and LDL levels in Chinese Han population.

The JAK2-STAT3 pathway is a signaling target of a multitude of cytokines that are thought to play significant biological roles in immune-mediated diseases. This pathway is essential in Th1 cell differentiation and proliferation. Additionally, it is also important for the development of Th17 cells. 12 Both Th1 and Th17 cells play critical roles in immune-mediated diseases such as BD. 26 The JAK2 and STAT3 signaling pathway may thus exert its influence on immune-mediated diseases, including BD, by modulating the Th1 and Th17 response. Recently, genetics polymorphisms of JAK2 and STAT3 have been investigated for their association with a number of autoimmune diseases including Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. 20,27 -32 All these results prompted us to examine whether the polymorphisms of the JAK2 and STAT3 genes could possibly also contribute to the development of BD in a Han Chinese population. To ensure the results, we made the following efforts. First, we strictly selected the patients ...

Objective: Our objective was to compare total body fat to lean mass ratio (F:LM) in Aboriginal, Chinese, European, and South Asian individuals with differences in insulin resistance.. …. Results: After adjustment for confounders and at a given body fat, South Asian men had less lean mass than Aboriginal [3.42 kg less; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.55-5.29], Chinese (3.01 kg less; 95% CI = 1.33-4.70), and European (3.57 kg less; 95% CI = 1.82-5.33) men, whereas South Asian women had less lean mass than Aboriginal (1.98 kg less; 95% CI = 0.45-3.50), Chinese (2.24 kg less; 95% CI = 0.81-3.68), and European (2.97 kg less; 95% CI = 1.67-4.27) women. In adjusted models, F:LM was higher in South Asian compared with Chinese and European men and higher in South Asian compared with Aboriginal, Chinese, and European women (P < 0.01 for all). Insulin and HOMA were greatest in South Asians after adjustment; however, these differences were no longer apparent when F:LM was considered.. Conclusions: South ...

Heart attacks strike South Asian men and women at younger ages and are more deadly compared to people from other world regions. [...] last month, Stanford Health Care opened the Stanford South Asian Translational Heart Initiative, a program that will treat existing heart patients, screen potential ones and conduct research. Dr. Rajesh Dash, medical and scientific director for the Stanford initiative, explained that genetics seem to put South Asians in harms way, even when their cholesterol and blood glucose levels and body mass index measurements are just a little elevated. 4 times South Asians risk of heart disease is four times greater than the general world populations, according to statistics provided by the South Asian Heart Center at El Camino Hospital.
A mongoloid baby is crying on the subway and so now everyone is a hostage. Everyone is either sitting next to or across from the baby or standing up and away from it but we might as well be bound and gagged in the back of a gas station.

Impacts of Cytochrome P450 2D6*10 Allele and a High-Fat Meal on the Pharmacokinetics of Dapoxetine in Healthy Chinese Men: A Single-Dose, Two-Treatment Study
The reason why, the researchers said, is because their bodies store extra fat differently. Rather than distributing it throughout the body under the skin, as is the case with people from most ethnic groups, the bodies of individuals of South Asian descent store the fat around the internal organs of the abdomen. This is known as visceral fat ...
Evolutionary biologists call it the r-K scale of reproductive strategies. At one end of this scale are r-strategies that rely on high reproductive rates. At the other end are K-strategies that rely on high levels of parental care. This scale is generally used to compare the life histories of different species of animals. I have used it to explain the smaller but real differences between the human races.. On this scale, Orientals are more K-selected than Whites, while Whites are more K-selected than Blacks. Highly K-selected women produce fewer eggs (and have bigger brains) than r-selected women. Highly K-selected men invest time and energy in their children rather than the pursuit of sexual thrills. They are dads rather than cads.. Chapter 7 shows that the race differences in reproductive strategies make sense in terms of human evolution. Modern humans evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago. Africans and non-Africans then split about 100,000 years ago. Orientals and Whites split about ...

In total 18 alleles were detected at the HLA-A locus, 46 alleles at the HLA-B locus and 14 alleles at the HLA-DRB1 locus. HLA-A02 was the most common HLA-A allele ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. Few gene studies of the Chinese population have focused on COPD. We investigated candidate genes associated with susceptibility to COPD in the Chinese Han population. A total of 331 COPD patients and 213 control subjects were recruited for this study. Nighty-seven single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of 46 genes were selected for genotyping. Genotypes were determined using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Significant differences between patients and healthy controls were observed in the allele frequencies of seven SNPs: rs1205 C, rs2353397 C, rs20541 T, rs2070600 G, rs10947233 G, rs1800629 G, and rs2241712 A. After Bonferroni correction, rs2353397 C was most strongly associated with susceptibility to COPD. Haplotype analysis showed that the frequencies of the GC, GT haplotypes of rs2241718 (TGF-β1 gene), and rs6957 (CDC97 gene) were significantly higher in the control group than in the COPD
Aims: To describe the prevalence and causes of decreased visual acuity (VA) in Singaporean Chinese children. Methods: A population-based survey of Singaporean Chinese children aged 6 to 72 months was conducted. Participants underwent an orthoptic evaluation, cycloplegic refraction and biometric measurements. A sub-group of children aged 30 to 72 months with presenting logMAR VA were included in this analysis. Retesting was performed on the same day or another day by predefined criteria with best refractive correction. Decreased VA was defined as worse than 20/50 (0.4 logMAR) for ages 30 to 47 months and worse than 20/40 (0.3 logMAR) for ages 48 to 72 months. Results: The study examined 3009 children (participation rate 72.3%) of which 2017 children aged 30 to 72 months were eligible for VA testing and completed in 1684 (83.5%). In children aged 30-47 months, the prevalence of decreased presenting VA was 2.1%, and in children 48-72 months, it was 2.05%, with no significant difference between boys ...
Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are assumed to be prognostic factors in many diseases such as inflammatory diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. However, NLR and PLR are race specific, it is important to determine the reference values of NLR and PLR in different races. The study aimed to investigate the reference range of NLR and PLR in Chinese Han population from Chaoshan region in South China. A retrospective study was conducted in the First Affiliated Hospital of Shantou University Medical College in South China. Five thousand healthy adults aged 20-69 years were included. NLR and PLR were determined. Of 5000 healthy adults, 2500 men and 2500 women were included. The mean NLR and PLR across all ages for men and women were 1.59 ± 0.59, 92.88 ± 28.70, 1.62 ± 0.64 and 108.02 ± 32.99, respectively. The 95% reference range of NLR in normal male and female are 0.43~2.75 and 0.37~2.87, PLR are 36.63~149.13 and 43.36~172.68, respectively. The female had
The present study was performed to investigate the association of IL23R polymorphisms with Fuchs syndrome in a Chinese Han population. The results showed that the AA genotype of the rs11209032 SNP was associated with an increased susceptibility to Fuchs syndrome. However, there was no difference with regard to the genotypes and alleles of rs7517847 and rs17375018 between patients with Fuchs syndrome and normal controls. Fuchs syndrome is a relatively rare uveitis entity [2]. Although the etiology and pathogenesis of Fuchs syndrome are not fully understood, several hypotheses including sympathetic lesions, association with ocular toxoplasmosis, vascular abnormalities, viral infections and autoimmunity have been proposed [15,16]. Among these presumptions, a viral infection has been accepted, as supported by the demonstration of local intraocular antiviral antibody production [16-18],Elevatedγ-interferon and interleukin 10, an increased number of CD8+ T cells in the aqueous humor and a ...
For this study, 461 Chinese Han patients with depressive disorder were recruited. The AKT1 genotype and allele distribution were determined by PCR amplification and direct sequencing. UNPHASED software was used to analyze associations between the 17-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, total score, four factors and the AKT1 rs2494746 and rs3001371 polymorphisms. The results indicate that there is a significant association between suicidal ideation and anxiety symptoms in depressed patients and the rs2494746 polymorphism. The other AKT1 polymorphism, rs3001371, was significantly associated with work and activities. Patients with the rs3001371-A allele had a significantly more severe illness compared to patients with the rs3001371-G allele. Thus, AKT1 polymorphisms appear to be associated with depression severity, anxiety symptoms, work and activities, and suicide attempts in patients with depressive disorder.
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in White Europeans have shown that genetic variation rs10830963 in melatonin receptor 1B gene (MTNR1B) is associated with fasting glucose and type 2 diabetes, which has also been replicated in several Asian populations. As a variant in the gene involved in the regulation of circadian rhythms, the effect of the variant on sleep status remains unknown. This study aimed to investigate the effects of MTNR1B rs10830963 on fasting glucose, type 2 diabetes and sleep status in Chinese Hans. MTNR1B rs10830963 was genotyped in a population-based cohort including 3,210 unrelated Chinese Hans from Beijing and Shanghai, and tested for associations with risk of type 2 diabetes, diabetes-related traits and sleep status. We confirmed the associations of MTNR1B rs10830963 with fasting glucose (beta = 0.11 mmol/l, 95%CI [0.03, 0.18], P = 0.005), glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) (beta = 0.07%, 95%CI [0.02,0.12], P = 0.004) and homeostasis model assessment of beta-cell function (HOMA-B)
In a prospective study of a general Japanese population, we clearly demonstrated that elevated HbA1c levels, even in the prediabetic range, were a significant risk factor for the development of CVD, especially for CHD and ischaemic stroke, in a general Japanese population. These associations remained robust even after controlling for comprehensive confounding factors. Furthermore, adding the HbA1c value to the confounding factors significantly improved the predictive ability for total CVD. These findings are important in that they indicate HbA1cs value for predicting the long-term risk of CVD in Japanese.. Some clinical and population-based cohort studies have shown that increased HbA1c levels were positively associated with the risks of CVDs and mortality [6-11, 20-25]. In the present study, the risks of CHD and ischaemic stroke were significantly or marginally higher even in the subjects with HbA1c levels of ≥5.5% compared with those with HbA1c levels of ≤5.0%. There has been controversy ...
GSK2190915 is currently in development for the treatment of asthma. This study aims to assess the safety and tolerability of single doses of GSK2190915 in healthy Japanese subjects. The study will also look at the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of single doses of GSK2190915 and aims to characterise the PK/PD relationship in healthy Japanese subjects. Twelve healthy Japanese subjects will take part in this single escalating dose study and subjects will receive one of five possible treatments, 10 mg, 50 mg, 150 mg, 450 mg GSK2190915 or placebo in each treatment period. Blood samples (for safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics), urine samples (for safety and pharmacodynamics) and ECGs, blood pressure readings, physical examinations and a review of adverse events will take place at a number of timepoints pre and post each dose. A minimum 7 day washout between treatment periods will be required. Regardless if a subject completes or prematurely withdraws from the study, a ...
The principal function of NILTs is to identify patients with high probability of having advanced fibrosis at the time of testing. Currently, decisions such as management in primary or secondary care or consideration for clinical trials are largely based on the results of these NILTs. As with any clinical test, there is a danger that if applied or interpreted inappropriately, wrong decisions can be made and, ultimately, harm may come to a patient. Despite the relatively small sample size, our data show that the sensitivity of commonly used NILTs is lower in patients of South Asian ethnicity suggesting that large numbers of South Asian patients may be inappropriately reassured that they do not have advanced disease. We recorded self-reported ethnicity and not first or subsequent generation immigration. Nevertheless, our data suggest that NASH may be more aggressive in South Asian patients who are almost a decade younger, have lower BMI and less severe BMI category than white patients with ...
Excerpts from the Abstract: [...] A total of 13 HLA-A, 24 HLA-B, 22 HLA-C, and 18 HLA-DRB1 were identified in 104 Zhuang individuals. The frequencies of HLA-A*11:01, A*02:07, A*24:02, A*02:03, and A*33:03 on A loci, B*15:02, B*58:01, B*46:01, and B*13:01 on B loci, C*03:04, C*08:01, C*01:02, C*03:02, and C*07:02 on C loci, and DRB1*15:01, DRB1*16:02, DRB1*14:01, DRB1*15:02, and DRB1*03:01 on the DRB1 loci were S,10%. The A*33:03-C*03:02-B*58:01-DRB1*03:01 and A*02:07-C*01:02-B*46:01-DRB1*14:01 haplotypes were predominant in the Zhuang. The phylogenetic tree, as well as the analysis of haplotypes, suggested that the Zhuang are genetically similar to southern Chinese populations, especially the Zhuang-Dong language-speaking populations, such as the Bouyei, Dai, and Maonan. Even though the Zhuang and southern Chinese populations shared common alleles and haplotypes, the Zhuang has maintained its unique genetic characteristics.

Objective: A novel functional cis-regulatory element (CRE) located at SNCA intron 4 has recently been identified in association with Parkinsons disease (PD) risk in European descendants. We aimed to investigate whether this CRE is associated with PD in Han Chinese ethnicity.Methods: A Chinese cohort comprising 513 sporadic PD patients and 517 controls was recruited. CRE variants were identified by sequencing and then analyzed.Results: A total of nine variants were detected, namely eight single nucleotide variants and one new insertion variant. Two variants, rs17016188 and rs7684892, had minor allele frequency greater than 5%. A difference of rs17016188 was observed in males with the C allele serving as a recessive risk factor (p = 0.001, OR = 2.349, 95% CI = 1.414-3.901) following Bonferroni correction. Haplotypes of rs17016188 and rs7684892 showed distribution differences in the total and the male populations (p = 0.002 and 4.08 × 10−5, respectively). Among the haplotypes, rs17016188/T-rs7684892/G

To identify the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the regulatory and coding regions of human SCN7A (sodium channel, voltage-gated, type VII, alpha polypeptide) gene and to investigate the association of some of these SNPs with essential hypertension (EH) in Chinese.The promoter region, exons, as well as part of the introns of SCN7A gene were sequenced by a fluorescent labeling automatic sequencing method to identify and characterize the SNPs in Chinese population. SNP genotyping was performed by PCR-RFLP or direct DNA sequencing in unrelated EH patients and normotensive controls from a Chinese Han population residing in Shanghai area. Case-control studies on seven SNPs were first carried out in 96 patients and 96 normotensive controls. The positive finding was further verified in an extended study containing 288 patients and 288 controls.Thirty-two SNPs were identified through a 13,132 bp sequencing of SCN7A gene. Among them, seven were in regulatory region, ten in coding regions, one in ...
With increasing number of epidemiological studies about BLL in China in recent years, it is now possible to obtain direct evidence of lead poisoning situation of Chinese population aged 0-18 years old. Based on strict inclusion criteria, eliminated relative low-quality studies by quality assessment of cross-sectional study, we identified 55 articles in this meta-analysis including 200,002 subjects, covering 19 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, thus the large population guaranteed the reliability of this study.. In this study, pooled rate of BLL ≥10 μg/dL in the 0-18 year old Chinese population during 1990-2012 was 25.1 % and corrected pooled rate under trim and fill method was 9 %, both much higher than all levels during 1991-1994 (4.4 %), 1999-2002 (1.6 %) and 2007-2010 (0.8 %) in US [8-10].. Considering high heterogeneity, subgroup analysis of different study year ranges showed overall decreasing trend of the rate with time. The decline appears to be attributed to government ...

Consistent with previous descriptions, our results show that the African population is the most diverse in terms of the number of variants expected to exist, the Asian populations the least diverse, with the European population in-between. In addition, our results show a clear distinction between the Chinese and the Japanese populations, with the Japanese population being the less diverse. To find all common variants (frequency at least 1%) the number of individuals that need to be sequenced is small (∼350) and does not differ much among the different populations; our data show that, subject to sequence accuracy, the 1000 Genomes Project is likely to find most of these common variants and a high proportion of the rarer ones (frequency between 0.1 and 1%). The data reveal a rule of diminishing returns: a small number of individuals (∼150) is sufficient to identify 80% of variants with a frequency of at least 0.1%, while a much larger number (> 3,000 individuals) is necessary to find all of ...
