## Association of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) null with numbers of basal cell carcinomas: use of a multivariate model to rank the relative importance of this polymorphism and those at other relevant loci. (1/133)

Glutathione S-transferase GSTM1 B and GSTT1 null, and cytochrome P450 CYP2D6 EM have been associated with cutaneous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) numbers, although their quantitative effects show that predisposition to many BCC is determined by an unknown number of further loci. We speculate that other loci that determine response to oxidative stress, such as NAD(H):quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) are candidates. Accordingly, we assessed the association between NQO1 null and BCC numbers primarily to rank NQO1 null in a model that included genotypes already associated with BCC numbers. We found that only 14 out of 457 cases (3.1%) were NQO1 null. This frequency did not increase in cases with characteristics linked with BCC numbers including gender, skin type, a truncal lesion or more than one new BCC at any presentation (MPP). However, the mean number of BCC in NQO1*0 homozygotes was greater than in wild-type allele homozygotes and heterozygotes, although the difference was not quite significant (P = 0.06). These data reflect the link between NQO1 null and BCC numbers in the 42 MPP cases rather than the whole case group. We identified an interaction between NQO1 null and GSTT1 null that was associated with more BCC (P = 0.04), although only four cases had this combination. The relative influence of NQO1 null was studied in a multivariate model that included: (i) 241 patients in whom GSTM1 B, GSTT1 null and CYP2D6 EM genotype data were available, and (ii) 101 patients in whom these genotypes, as well as data on GSTM3, CYP1A1 and melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor (MC1R) genotypes were available. NQO1 null (P = 0.001) and MC1R asp294/asp294 (P = 0.03) were linked with BCC numbers, and the association with CYP2D6 EM approached significance (P = 0.08). In a stepwise regression model only these genotypes were significantly associated with BCC numbers with NQO1 null being the most powerful predictor. (+info)## A likelihood-based method of identifying contaminated lots of blood product. (2/133)

BACKGROUND: In 1994 a small cluster of hepatitis-C cases in Rhesus-negative women in Ireland prompted a nationwide screening programme for hepatitis-C antibodies in all anti-D recipients. A total of 55 386 women presented for screening and a history of exposure to anti-D was sought from all those testing positive and a sample of those testing negative. The resulting data comprised 620 antibody-positive and 1708 antibody-negative women with known exposure history, and interest was focused on using these data to estimate the infectivity of anti-D in the period 1970-1993. METHODS: Any exposure to anti-D provides an opportunity for infection, but the infection status at each exposure time is not observed. Instead, the available data from antibody testing only indicate whether at least one of the exposures resulted in infection. Using a simple Bernoulli model to describe the risk of infection in each year, the absence of information regarding which exposure(s) led to infection fits neatly into the framework of 'incomplete data'. Hence the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm provides estimates of the infectiousness of anti-D in each of the 24 years studied. RESULTS: The analysis highlighted the 1977 anti-D as a source of infection, a fact which was confirmed by laboratory investigation. Other suspect batches were also identified, helping to direct the efforts of laboratory investigators. CONCLUSIONS: We have presented a method to estimate the risk of infection at each exposure time from multiple exposure data. The method can also be used to estimate transmission rates and the risk associated with different sources of infection in a range of infectious disease applications. (+info)## A priori estimation of accuracy and of the number of wells to be employed in limiting dilution assays. (3/133)

The use of limiting dilution assay (LDA) for assessing the frequency of responders in a cell population is a method extensively used by immunologists. A series of studies addressing the statistical method of choice in an LDA have been published. However, none of these studies has addressed the point of how many wells should be employed in a given assay. The objective of this study was to demonstrate how a researcher can predict the number of wells that should be employed in order to obtain results with a given accuracy, and, therefore, to help in choosing a better experimental design to fulfill one's expectations. We present the rationale underlying the expected relative error computation based on simple binomial distributions. A series of simulated in machina experiments were performed to test the validity of the a priori computation of expected errors, thus confirming the predictions. The step-by-step procedure of the relative error estimation is given. We also discuss the constraints under which an LDA must be performed. (+info)## Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and liver-related mortality: a population-based cohort study in southern Italy. The Association for the Study of Liver Disease in Puglia. (4/133)

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a common cause of chronic liver diseases but the degree to which these diseases contribute to liver-related mortality is not well established. The aim of this study was to estimate the absolute and relative effects of HCV infection on liver-related mortality. METHODS: A population random sample of 2472 subjects aged > or = 30 years was enrolled and followed up from 1985 to 1996. At enrollment, a structured interview and a clinical evaluation were performed. Serum samples were tested using HCV ELISA and RIBA HCV. Outcomes were overall and liver-related mortality and tracing procedures included review of office and hospital records, death certificates, and interviews with general practitioners, attending hospital and next of kin. Statistical analysis was performed using Poisson and binomial prospective data regression. RESULTS: Crude overall and liver-related mortality rates were 7.66 (95% CI : 6.68-8.79) and 0.9 (95% CI : 0.3-2.2) per 10(3) person-years, respectively. For HCV infection effect, incidence rate ratio and difference (per 10(3) person-year), risk ratio and difference were 27.5 (95% CI : 6.5-115.6), 4 (95% CI : 3-7), 33.1 (95% CI : 7.8- 139.3) and 0.06 (95% CI : 0.04-0.08), respectively; all measures were adjusted for age at death, sex and daily alcohol intake. CONCLUSIONS: The results show a strong relative but weak absolute effect of HCV infection on liver-related mortality in the 10-year period considered. Poisson and binomial models are virtually equivalent, but the choice of the summarizing measure of effect may have a different impact on health policy. (+info)## Molecular genetic maps in wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides: genome-wide coverage, massive negative interference, and putative quasi-linkage. (5/133)

The main objectives of the study reported here were to construct a molecular map of wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides, to characterize the marker-related anatomy of the genome, and to evaluate segregation and recombination patterns upon crossing T. dicoccoides with its domesticated descendant Triticum durum (cultivar Langdon). The total map length exceeded 3000 cM and possibly covered the entire tetraploid genome (AABB). Clusters of molecular markers were observed on most of the 14 chromosomes. AFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism) markers manifested a random distribution among homologous groups, but not among genomes and chromosomes. Genetic differentiation between T. dicoccoides and T. durum was attributed mainly to the B genome as revealed by AFLP markers. The segregation-distorted markers were mainly clustered on 4A, 5A, and 5B chromosomes. Homeoalleles, differentially conferring the vigor of gametes, might be responsible for the distortion on 5A and 5B chromosomes. Quasilinkage, deviation from free recombination between markers of nonhomologous chromosomes, was discovered. Massive negative interference was observed in most of the chromosomes (an excess of double crossovers in adjacent intervals relative to the expected rates on the assumption of no interference). The general pattern of distribution of islands of negative interference included near-centromeric location, spanning the centromere, and median/subterminal location. [An appendix describing the molecular marker loci is available as an online supplement at http://www.genome.org.] (+info)## The targeting of somatic hypermutation closely resembles that of meiotic mutation. (6/133)

We have compared the microsequence specificity of mutations introduced during somatic hypermutation (SH) and those introduced meiotically during neutral evolution. We have minimized the effects of selection by studying nonproductive (hence unselected) Ig V region genes for somatic mutations and processed pseudogenes for meiotic mutations. We find that the two sets of patterns are very similar: the mutabilities of nucleotide triplets are positively correlated between the somatic and meiotic sets. The major differences that do exist fall into three distinct categories: 1) The mutability is sharply higher at CG dinucleotides under meiotic but not somatic mutation. 2) The complementary triplets AGC and GCT are much more mutable under somatic than under meiotic mutation. 3) Triplets of the form WAN (W = T or A) are uniformly more mutable under somatic than under meiotic mutation. Nevertheless, the relative mutabilities both within this set and within the SAN (S = G or C) triplets are highly correlated with those under meiotic mutation. We also find that the somatic triplet specificity is strongly symmetric under strand exchange for A/T triplets as well as for G/C triplets in spite of the strong predominance of A over T mutations. Thus, we suggest that somatic mutation has at least two distinct components: one that specifically targets AGC/GCT triplets and another that acts as true catalysis of meiotic mutation. (+info)## Allelic imbalance on chromosomes 13 and 17 and mutation analysis of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in monozygotic twins concordant for breast cancer. (7/133)

To study genetic changes associated with the development of breast cancer and the extent of its hereditary predisposition, paraffin-embedded tissue samples were obtained from monozygotic twin pairs concordant for breast cancer through the linked Swedish Twin and Cancer Registries. DNA samples extracted from the matched tumour and normal tissues of nine twin pairs were analysed for allelic imbalance using a series of microsatellite markers on chromosomes 13 and 17, containing loci with known tumour suppressor genes. Multiple losses of constitutional heterozygosity (LOH), consistent with a loss of large genomic region, the whole chromosome or chromosome arm, was found in at least three pairs of twins. One double mitotic crossover was identified in one tumour sample in a pair concordant for LOH at multiple loci on both chromosomes. Recombination breakpoints were mapped to regions delineated by D13S218 and D13S263, and D13S155 and D13S279, respectively. In general, no genetic effect of losing the same allele within a twin pair was found. However, for one marker at chromosome 13 (D13S328, between the BRCA2 and the RB-1 loci) and two markers on chromosome 17 (D17S786, distal to the p53 locus, and D17S855, an intragenic BRCA1 marker) the proportion of twin pairs with the same LOH was significantly higher than expected. These regions may reflect hereditary genomic changes in our sample set. In addition, tumour DNA samples from a subset of 12 twin pairs were analysed for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations using exon-by-exon single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis. Two unclassified BRCA2 variants, with a putative pathogenic effect, were identified, but no pathogenic alterations were found in the BRCA1 gene. (+info)## Incidence, aetiology, and outcome of non-traumatic coma: a population based study. (8/133)

AIM: To determine the incidence, presentation, aetiology, and outcome of non-traumatic coma in children aged between 1 month and 16 years. METHODS: In this prospective, population based, epidemiological study in the former Northern NHS region of the UK, cases were notified following any hospital admission or community death associated with non-traumatic coma. Coma was defined as a Glasgow Coma Score below 12 for more than six hours. RESULTS: The incidence of non-traumatic coma was 30.8 per 100 000 children under 16 per year (6.0 per 100 000 general population per year). The age specific incidence was notably higher in the first year of life (160 per 100 000 children per year). CNS specific presentations became commoner with increasing age. In infants, nearly two thirds of presentations were with non-specific, systemic signs. Infection was the commonest overall aetiology. Aetiology remained unknown in 14% despite extensive investigation and/or autopsy. Mortality was highly dependent on aetiology, with aetiology specific mortality rates varying from 3% to 84%. With follow up to approximately 12 months, overall series mortality was 46%. (+info)Discrete Probability

By it overbooks a 240 seat airplane by 5%, does that mean that 5% of the people booked are extras (i.e. 95% of the people booked = 240 people --, 252.63 people are booked) or that it books an extra 5% on top of the 240 people (i.e. 240 + 5% of 240 = the number of people booked = 252). Now, if its the first one, then the answer is clearly zero. 5% of the people booked are extra, and 5% of the people do not show up, so chances are the people that have to be bumped off a flight is zero, so they have to payout $0. However, the problem with the first one is that it doesnt make sense to say they book 252.63 people. However, perhaps they mean that in total, of all their, say, 1000000 customers, 5% are overbooked, i.e. not 5% of 252.63, but 5% in general. If we go with the second option, then the answer is still zero. If they overbook by 5% as per the second definition, they book 252 people. 5% of them dont show, thats 12.6 people, so in total only 239.4 ...
