The right to be treated against her will. (1/1632)

... My sister's inconsistent and intermittent treatment over the past eight years is largely a result of her own indecision and the inconsistencies of her abnormal mental state. The professionals who might have taken control of the situation as her health and functioning deteriorated have not done so and I must presume that they believe they cannot do so. I do not think her case is unique. There are many more people living in the community who are severely ill and are being deprived of treatment they need.  (+info)

Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for thalassaemia major in Hong Kong: prognostic factors and outcome. (2/1632)

From August 1992 to August 1999, 44 patients received allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in a single institution. The donors were HLA-identical siblings except for one who was a phenotypically matched father. Thirty-eight patients received bone marrow stem cells and the others received peripheral blood stem cells or umbilical cord blood (UCB). The mean age at transplant was 10.7+/-5.1 years, ranging from 1.8 to 21 years. Patients received busulphan (16 mg/kg) and cyclophosphamide (150 to 200 mg/kg) as conditioning, and antithymocyte globulin was given to 42 patients to prevent graft rejection. All had engraftment except a patient who received a UCB transplant. Four patients died from early treatment-related mortality, and one died from interstitial pneumonitis 3 months after transplant. Two patients developed secondary graft rejection and both received a second transplant. Thirty-eight patients survived and all except one were transfusion independent. The 5-year overall and event-free survival rates were 86% and 82%, respectively. By multivariate stepwise Cox proportional hazard analyses, severe veno-occlusive disease (VOD) of liver and Pesaro class 3 features were the significant factors associated with survival. Patients aged more than 11 years were more inclined to develop VOD. In conclusion, haematopoietic stem cell transplantation should be performed early if an HLA identical sibling is available.  (+info)

Healthy sibling donor anxiety and pain during bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell harvesting for allogeneic transplantation: results of a randomised study. (3/1632)

This study reports the first comparison of healthy donor subjective well-being during two alternative procedures of hematopoietic stem cells harvesting for allogeneic transplantation. Among the 105 donors included between September 1996 and October 1998 in the SFGM French randomised trial aiming to compare allogeneic bone marrow (BM) transplantation and blood cell (BC) transplantation, 64 donors (33 in BC and 31 in BM groups) were relevant for the analysis. They had received a set of self-administered questionnaires to complete during the collection process, aiming to measure anxiety (assessed using the Spielberger's State-Trait Anxiety Inventory) and pain induced by the procedure (evaluated using a visual analogical scale). Results showed that no harvest procedure is free from pain even if none was more painful than the other. Levels of anxiety before the collection procedure were high in both groups and significantly so for BC donors. Although BC collection induces at least similar levels of pain and anxiety as does BM collection, they were of a different kind, and the short-term impact of G-CSF stimulation on the well-being of BC donors has to be taken into account in improving quality of care in the allogeneic setting.  (+info)

Myocarditis in sibling boxer puppies associated with Citrobacter koseri infection. (4/1632)

Two sibling Boxer puppies presented with severe suppurative myocarditis in the absence of additional disseminated suppurative foci. The identification of gram-negative bacteria within areas of myocarditis in both puppies and the pure growth of large numbers of Citrobacter koseri from the myocardial lesions in one of the dogs were consistent with a bacterial etiology. The fact that C. koseri is an opportunist pathogen suggested intercurrent immunosuppression. The finding of a concomitant bacterial myocarditis in two canine siblings is novel. The case is also unusual in that syncope could be related to the myocardial injury.  (+info)

Familial risk of preeclampsia in Newfoundland: a population-based study. (5/1632)

This study sought to quantify the familial risk of preeclampsia (proteinuric hypertension) in Newfoundland and to identify characteristics in probands that predict increased familial risk. Reviewed were 5173 obstetric charts from 10 hospitals, representing 99% of deliveries on the island of Newfoundland for a 1-yr period from April 1996 to March 1997; pregnancy-induced hypertension was diagnosed according to strict criteria. Family obstetric histories were obtained from identified probands with preeclampsia, and sisters and mothers of probands were interviewed. In addition, the obstetric charts from sisters and mothers were reviewed to identify preeclampsia. The incidence of preeclampsia in the population was 5.6% (n = 292), and in primiparous women it was 7.9%. Factors independently associated with increased risk of preeclampsia included primiparous delivery, multiple gestation, pregestational and gestational diabetes, maternal age of more than 35 yr, and region of the province. Of 330 sisters identified, 217 had 445 pregnancies, with 331 charts located for review. The incidence of preeclampsia (based on chart review) in 163 primiparous sisters was 20.2%. The relative risk of preeclampsia in primiparous sisters of probands with preeclampsia compared with primiparous women in the population was 2.6 (95% confidence interval, 1.8 to 3.6). Factors in probands independently associated with a higher risk of preeclampsia in sisters included at least 2+ proteinuria and region of the province. This population-based study, which used unbiased ascertainment and strict diagnostic criteria, demonstrated a significantly higher risk of preeclampsia in sisters of probands with preeclampsia, particularly when probands were defined by severity of preeclampsia and by geographic region.  (+info)

Genetic heterogeneity in schizophrenia II: conditional analyses of affected schizophrenia sibling pairs provide evidence for an interaction between markers on chromosome 8p and 14q. (6/1632)

Information from multiple genome scans and collaborative efforts suggests that schizophrenia is a heterogeneous, complex disorder with polygenic and environmental antecedents. In a previous paper we demonstrated that stratification of families on the basis of co-segregating phenotypes (psychotic affective disorders (PAD) and schizophrenia spectrum personality disorders (SSPD) in first-degree relatives of schizophrenic probands increased linkage evidence in the chromosome 8p21 region (D8S1771) among families with co-segregating SSPD. We have now applied a method of conditional analysis of sib-pairs affected with schizophrenia, examining shared alleles identical-by-descent (IBD) at multiple loci. The method yields enhanced evidence for linkage to the chromosome 8p21 region conditioned upon increased allele sharing at a chromosome 14 region. The method produces a more refined estimate of the putative disease locus on chromosome 8p21, narrowing the region from 18 cM (95% confidence interval) in our previous genome scan, to approximately 9.6 cM. We have also shown that the affected siblings sharing two alleles IBD at the chromosome 8p21 region and one allele IBD at the chromosome 14 region differ significantly in clinical symptoms from non-sharing affected siblings. Thus the analysis of allele sharing at a putative schizophrenia susceptibility locus conditioned on allele sharing at other loci provides another important method for dealing with heterogeneity.  (+info)

Reciprocal bone marrow transplantation between brother and sister. (7/1632)

A child with AML underwent allogeneic BMT from an HLA-identical sister donor. Prompt and stable triline-age engraftment occurred and after few months he returned to a normal life. Eight years later a primary NHL of bone developed in his sister. A partial remission was obtained by means of standard NHL treatment, but 3 months later rapid disease progression occurred with complete bone marrow invasion (ALL-L3). She was treated with a leukemia relapse protocol, obtaining a second partial remission. Unpurged bone marrow harvested from the brother, transplanted for AML 8 years earlier, was infused after conditioning with TBI and thiothepa. No GVHD prophylaxis was given. Neutrophil engraftment occurred by 14 days and platelet engraftment by 20 days after BMT. No acute GVHD was observed, but unexpectedly she developed skin and liver GVHD-like symptoms 80 days after BMT. Since the liver biopsy was suggestive of liver GVHD and in the absence of any other evidence as a possible cause of the hepatic damage, the patient started mycophenolate. Two months later serum hepatitis B markers were detectable.  (+info)

Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism associates with graft-versus-host disease and survival in HLA-matched sibling allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (8/1632)

We investigated the role of polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene in HLA-matched sibling BMT for polymorphisms previously associated with human disease pathology. In intron 8 of the VDR gene, the B and A alleles of the BsmI and ApaI RFLPs were found to associate with reduced aGVHD when present in the patient's genotype. Logistic regression analysis demonstrated that patient VDR genotype, along with previously identified IL-10(-1064) and IFN-gamma genotype to be risk factors for severe acute GVHD. The A allele also associates with increased likelihood of death when present in the donor genotype (AA vs Aa or aa, hazard ratio 2.03, P = 0.0232). In patients who received increased prophylaxis with multi-agent therapy, patients whose graft was from a donor with an AA genotype had a substantially worse survival than patients whose graft was from a donor with a non-AA genotype (hazard ratio 12.93, P < 0.0001). Analysis of VDR genotype in prospective BMT recipients could indicate patients at risk of severe aGVHD. Analysis of VDR genotype in prospective BMT donors may identify individuals who have greater transplant-related mortality, and also allow appropriately restricted use of increased immunosuppressive prophylaxis.  (+info)

article{8f5afdd6-2e14-4ef4-96cb-5c36a054b52b, abstract = {,p,Background: There is a lack of theoretical framework supporting stem cell transplant nurses in their assessment, judgment and caring interventions of sibling stem cell donors. Objective: The purpose of this study was to explore sibling stem cell donors main concerns and how they deal with them before and after donation. Method: Ten healthy sibling donors, 5 men and 5 women, with a median age of 54 years were included in this study when they were due to donate stem cells to a brother or sister. Data were collected prospectively on three occasions (before the donation and three and twelve months after it) through in-depth interviews, which were recorded and transcribed verbatim for analysis by the Grounded Theory method according to Charmaz. Results: This study describes the efforts of the ten donors to fulfil their duty as a sibling by doing what they considered necessary in order to help. Their efforts were summarised in a process ...
The role of antithymocyte globulin (ATG) in preventing acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) after HLA-matched sibling donor transplantation (MSDT) is still controversial.We performed a prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial (RCT) across 23 transplantation centers in China. Patients ages 40-60 years with standard-risk hematologic malignancies with an HLA-matched sibling donor were randomly assigned to an ATG group (4.5 mg/kg thymoglobulin plus cyclosporine [CsA], methotrexate [MTX], and mycophenolate mofetil [MMF]) and a control group (CsA, MTX, and MMF). The primary end point of this study was grade 2-4 aGVHD on day 100.From November 2013 to April 2018, 263 patients were enrolled. The cumulative incidence rate of grade 2-4 aGVHD was significantly reduced in the ATG group (13.7%; 95% CI, 13.5% to 13.9%) compared with the control group (27.0%; 95% CI, 26.7% to 27.3%; P = .007). The ATG group had significantly lower incidences of 2-year overall chronic GVHD (27.9% [95% ...
Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is an effective postremission strategy for patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in first complete remission (CR). The value of administering consolidation chemotherapy before human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical sibling transplantation is not established. Outcomes of patients with AML in first CR receiving no consolidation therapy, standard-dose cytarabine consolidation therapy, and high-dose cytarabine consolidation therapy before HLA-identical sibling transplantation were compared. Five-year treatment-related mortality rates were 30% (95% confidence interval [CI], 18% to 42%) in patients receiving no consolidation chemotherapy, 22% (95% CI, 17% to 28%) in those receiving standard-dose cytarabine consolidation, and 24% (95% CI, 17% to 31%) in those receiving high-dose cytarabine (P = NS). Five-year cumulative incidences of relapse were 19% (10% to 30%), 21% (16% to 27%), and 17% (11% to 24%), respectively (P = NS). Five-year probabilities of ...
Abstract A case-control study was conducted to examine whether physical activity, sibling history of heart disease (HHD), and length of residence in an area endemic for Chagas' disease were associated with the risk of developing Chagas' cardiopathy. Two hundred forty-seven cases of Chagas' heart disease and 345 seropositive subjects with normal ECG (controls) were selected in a population survey in Goiânia, Brazil. Prevalence ratios for exposure variables were estimated for cases in relation to controls and for subgroups of seropositives with selected ECG abnormalities in relation to controls. Increasing age and male sex were consistently and significantly related to an increased risk of ECG abnormalities. HHD was significantly associated with ECG alterations in 3 of the 5 comparison subgroups (any ECG alteration, right bundle branch block, and left anterior hemiblock). No association was found between length of residence in an area endemic, physical activity, and ECG abnormalities. A
New York, Aug 6 (IANS) The risk of younger siblings developing an autism spectrum disorder is 14 times higher if an older sibling has the disorder, says a study. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder defined by impairments in social interaction and communication, as well as restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour. The findings showed that children with older siblings who had autism had the disease rate of 11.3 per cent compared to 0.92 per cent for those with unaffected older siblings.. The risk level was found consistent across gestational age at birth.. Younger siblings who were born at preterm (28-36 gestational weeks) and had an older sibling diagnosed with autism were at 10 times increased risk for developing the developmental disorder.. Our study provides additional insights into how autism affects siblings, said Darios Getahun, Scientist at Kaiser Permanente - a US-based health care company.. Further, younger boys with Autism who had older brothers were much more likely to be ...
By creating artificial selection lines divergent for male T and measuring subsequent reproductive fitness of F1 full siblings, we demonstrated several important elements of intralocus sexual conflict in the small mammal M. glareolus. First, we show that inheritance patterns of paternal T reveal a negative correlation on the fitness of opposite-sex progeny (father-daughter, mother-son; table 1 and figure 1). Second, we show a selection line by sex interaction between reproductive fitness estimates in male and female bank voles (figure 2). Third, the fitness of full siblings is negatively correlated (figure 3). Accordingly, our study indicates that sexually antagonistic selection is probably acting on the steroid hormone T, which has importance implications for sexual selection.. Could the negative correlation in fitness between F1 full siblings be owing to mechanisms other than intralocus conflict? Differential non-genetic investment by mothers may produce such a result. However, bank vole ...
The Sister Study is prospectively examining environmental and familial risk factors for breast cancer and other diseases in a cohort of 50,884 sisters of women who have had breast cancer. Such sisters have about twice the risk of developing breast cancer as other women. The frequency of any relevant genes and shared risk factors will also be higher. Studying sisters enhances our ability to understand the interplay of genes and environment in breast cancer risk and to identify potentially preventable risk factors. We assess exposures before the onset of disease, thus avoiding biases common to retrospective studies. The assembled cohort has created a framework from which to test new hypotheses as they emerge.. Cancer-free sisters aged 35-74 were recruited nationally. Enrollment was completed July 2009 with 50,884 women fully enrolled. Participants have enrolled from all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The cohort is now being followed actively. Cohort members are occasionally invited to participate in ...
With our synthesis, we found that siblings alter their behavior to meet their own needs and those of the family, taking on tasks and skills that include them in the current caring goals of the family. With time and positive feedback, the behaviors that are reinforced become roles within the family and an internalized positive characteristic of their identity. These characteristics are synonymous with prosocial characteristics listed in the clinical and research literature.2,27,40,44,45. However, this combination of emotional self-sufficiency and increase in prosocial behaviors may lead parents and professionals to perceive the sibling as functioning and thriving. Parents underestimate the emotional responses and needs of healthy siblings,2 which may explain why healthy siblings are frequently overlooked, and why there is a lack of professional guidance regarding the treatment of siblings through the care process.41,46 For example, the policy statement from the American Association of Pediatrics ...
A siblings DNA test is an accurate and reliable way of determining whether siblings are full siblings, half siblings or unrelated.
A few words of caution, DNA testing isnt for the faint of heart. During the early 1950s, my wife was adopted at birth. Last year out of curiosity she wanted to determine her ethnic origins so she sent her sample to Ancestry DNA. The results showed she was basically Irish but also indicated she had two first cousins. This February one of the cousins contacted her and they have become good email friends. A few weeks later Ancestry showed my wife had a full sibling match. At first blush this would seem like a great commercial for Ancestry but alas things havent worked out too well. Since there are over 100 first, second and third cousin relatives to both my wife and her biological sibling she decided it would be best to email the sib and explain she was adopted. He never responded but there has been some communication with another brother, an attorney. As things currently stand the full sibling match has caused problems in the biological family while causing my wife extreme guilt for even ...
Obtaining seed sibling control siRNAs can be accomplished with a lookup tool as part of the Dharmacon Cherry-pick Plater. When a researcher provides a list of experimental siRNAs to validate (either a Dharmacon catalog number or the sense/target sequence), the tool will return a list of catalog siRNAs that have the same seed region as the indicated experimental siRNA, but with no perfect match target in the species of interest. See Figure 3 for an example. Since this approach uses existing Dharmacon catalog products, these reagents are immediately available as there is no custom synthesis required.. The selected seed sibling siRNAs can then be automatically loaded into the Cherry-pick Plater to generate an arrayed plate with the desired quantity per well, catalog controls, and plate layout.. ...

Participants were drawn from the Quebec Newborn Twin Study, an ongoing longitudinal study of twins born between 1995 and 1998 in the greater Montreal area. Data for this study were collected at ages 13 (seventh grade), 14 (eighth grade), and 15 (ninth grade). By examining the spread of problems between twins, the researchers were able to rule out alternative explanations for increases in alcohol misuse, such as parent modeling and an inherited susceptibility to alcohol abuse that can emerge with puberty. The hypothesis that we were testing is that somehow bad behavior on the part of one sibling - the bad apple - spreads not just between siblings but also across domains, so that one siblings delinquency seems to spoil everything the other sibling does, increasing problems in a host of other areas. In other words, the more delinquent one sibling is the more different problems the other sibling has, said Brett Laursen, Ph.D., lead author, professor, and graduate studies coordinator in FAUs ...
Not necessarily! This month, we presented findings from our sibling study at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Scientific Meeting. Our research demonstrated that while 53% of siblings had a sensitivity to some allergens, only 13% had a true allergy. Testing for food allergies if a reaction hasnt taken place can lead to false-positives. Results from this study indicated that screening siblings for allergies should be limited..

Sibling Identity and relationships asks what it means to be a sister or brother, a relationship which has tended to be sidelined in foregrounding parental-child relations. It charts the emotional and social facets to their ongoing constructions, shifts and changes. The authors interestingly combine social constructionist and psychodynamic perspectives as a means of discussing complex, shared, emotions, such as sibling projective identification, connection and separation. Such emotions are seen to be shaped by and respond to varying social conditions and circumstances. In answering the question why siblings? the authors point to the significance of siblings for our sense of self, whether that self be constructed as similar to or vastly different from our sisters and brothers.. Each author positions herself by disciplinary background as well as by sibling status: in the rehearsal and displacement of oldest, middle and youngest child syndrome myths, many other readers may well consider ...
The bully on the playground can cause lasting harm, both physical and psychological, to your children. But even more dangerous is the bully in the backyard, the one who shares your childs DNA.. Up to 40 percent of children are being bullied by their siblings, and the torment can have long-lasting consequences, including depression, anxiety, inflammation, obesity and self-harm, a recent study says. In fact, sibling bullying can be worse than bullying by peers because the child has no way to escape, experts say.. Yet parents often dismiss the behavior as natural and dont intervene, rationalizing that all siblings fight to some degree.. Conflict is normal and natural and necessary. But bullying is not something you resolve; its something you stop, said bullying expert Barbara Coloroso, author of The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander.. If allowed to continue, the abuse can harm the bullied child not only as it occurs, but long after she and her sibling are adults. One study in England ...
This large nationwide familial study of hospitalized cases of VTE in Sweden highlights the value of sibling history as a predictor of the risk of VTE. The family history of siblings appears to be an important risk factor for VTE with a higher relative risk than for many identified genetic risk factors.19-21,32-35 For many complex diseases, the average familial risks in first-degree relatives is ≈2, which is in agreement with the present study.36 Although a familial risk of ≈2 might appear modest, it suggests that uncovering genetic and nongenetic sources of familial aggregation might be worthwhile.36 Moreover, the dissected underlying familial risk factors (genetic or nongenetic) are likely to have a magnitude that is stronger than the familial risk itself.36 The 5 major identified genetic risk factors contribute to only ≈30% of the family history.15 The newly identified common, but much weaker, alleles probably contribute to only a small fraction of the familial risks.19-21,32-35 It has ...

When I was first diagnosed with cancer several weeks ago, I didnt have much time to think. I was just trying to survive after getting punch to the gut after punch to the gut of bad news.. First I went to the ER thinking I had pneumonia, and was told that no, I had cancer. Then I was told instead of it being a more common, more relatively easy-to-treat type of cancer like Hodgkins or B-Cell Lymphoma, it was a more rare type of lymphoma (T-cell), with a worse prognosis, worse survival rates, and a much harder chemotherapy regimen that would last two and a half years instead of the six months I was expecting.. Then I was told the chemotherapy would make me infertile and menopausal, at 31.. Then I was told I might need a bone marrow transplant. The doctors asked me, Do you have any full siblings? I told them no, I didnt, because Im adopted. Oh hmm… they trailed off. Well worry about that later.. But then, a few days later, I got my first piece of good news. The bone marrow biopsy was ...
Number of full siblings in database: 8. The COI (Coefficient of Inbreeding) is calculated up to a maximum of 12 generations. However, if a generation is found where fewer than 75% of the dogs in that generation are known, the calculation stops just short of that generation. So if all dogs are known in the 5th generation but only half of them are known in the 6th generation, a 5-generation COI will be calculated. For dogs with more than 10 generations of pedigree information available, a 10-generation COI is also calculated for comparison and statistical purposes.. The COI is calculated entirely from the pedigree information present in the database, so if there are inaccuracies in the pedigree, there will also be inaccuracies in the COI. COIs are calculated in batches about once a month, so the current COI may not reflect recent pedigree changes. Accuracy of the COI is not guaranteed.. ...
As I said it could be that the AIMs arent quite as accurate as they should be, and are underestimating the ancestral fractions on the individuals at the extremes (e.g., someone who is 100% European is estimated to be 95% European, because the marker set lacks precision). So you might bump up the proportion of variance explained a bit, but likely this still seems way too low to you intuitively. There are a few things going on here. First, skin color is controlled between populations by a relatively small set of genetic loci. This means that in admixed populations the sample variance, the random draw of genotypes across the loci, is going to vary a lot even in individuals with the same ancestry. Because of the relatively small number of large effect loci skin color is a trait which shows a lot of variation within families where ancestry is geographically diverse. And within families, or at least across full siblings, total ancestry is not going to vary that much. Second, for some of the traits ...
In Malecots system two genes at the same locus, in the same or different individuals, are defined as Identical by Descent (IBD) if they are both descended from the very same individual ancestral gene, without either of them undergoing mutation in the interim. The relatedness between two individuals can be measured, roughly speaking, by calculating the probability that two genes at the same locus in the two individuals are IBD. To do this it is necessary first to identify all the distinct paths of descent connecting the two individuals through a common ancestor, and then to calculate the probability that the same gene will have descended to both individuals from that ancestor along any given path. Since all such paths of descent are mutually exclusive (though portions of them may overlap), the resulting probabilities can be added together to give the total probability that a given gene in the two individuals is IBD. To take a simple case, consider two individuals (full siblings) who have both ...

Hi Dr. Ben,. Ive been following your blog for many years now and have found so much comfort in similar experiences that weve had with family and friends. Im writing with hope that you can tell me your opinion on an issue that has been gnawing away at me since I was a teenager. I have an older brother who Ill call Sam. Im too exhausted to dance around this so let me just say that hes the worst person I know. He is a real creep. Please allow me to explain why.. As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be close to Sam. Wanted to have that family bond that I grew up seeing between siblings on Happy Days, The Cosby Show, and Family Ties. Sam wanted none of it. All he cared about was money and trying to show the world that he had made it. For years, I wrote his coldness and apathy off to toxic younger sibling syndrome where older siblings just want space to do their own thing without their kid brother or sister tailing along all the time. But after a while it became clear that Sam is just a ...

I am incredibly blessed to have two siblings, my brother who is 2 1/2 years younger than me and my sister who is about 7 years younger than me. Im the big, bossy, older sister!! My brothers nickname for me FOREVER has been Lucy Van Pelt (yes, like the Peanuts character). Thats okay, I call him Linus!! I have a great relationship with both of my siblings. My baby brother came to visit us back in December. Since we live ten hours away from each other we dont get to see his family as much as I would like. My brother got married before I did and had children before I did. He married his high school sweetheart. He has two amazing daughters and I have become really close to them in the past year. My brother already has a daughter in college. When he came to visit us, I picked his brain about all of the preparations for college that he went through with his older daughter. He gave me a boatload of advice and I have tucked it away for future reference for my daughter. Growing up my brother and I ...

BACKGROUND The association of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tic disorder (TD) is frequent and clinically important. Very few and inconclusive attempts have been made to clarify if and how the combination of ADHD+TD runs in families. AIM To determine the first time in a large-scale ADHD sample whether ADHD+TD increases the risk of ADHD+TD in siblings and, also the first time, if this is independent of their psychopathological vulnerability in general. METHODS The study is based on the International Multicenter ADHD Genetics (IMAGE) study. The present sub-sample of 2815 individuals included ADHD-index patients with co-existing TD (ADHD+TD, n = 262) and without TD (ADHD-TD, n = 947) as well as their 1606 full siblings (n = 358 of the ADHD+TD index patients and n = 1248 of the ADHD-TD index patients). We assessed psychopathological symptoms in index patients and siblings by using the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the parent and teacher Conners long version ...
Abstract: BACKGROUND: The broad autism phenotype includes subclinical autistic characteristics found to have a higher prevalence in unaffected family members of individuals with autism. These characteristics primarily affect the social aspects of language, communication, and human interaction. The current research focuses on possible neurobehavioral characteristics associated with the broad autism phenotype. METHODS: We used a face-processing task associated with atypical patterns of gaze fixation and brain function in autism while collecting brain functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and eye tracking in unaffected siblings of individuals with autism. RESULTS: We found robust differences in gaze fixation and brain function in response to images of human faces in unaffected siblings compared with typically developing control individuals. The siblings gaze fixations and brain activation patterns during the face processing task were similar to that of the autism group and showed decreased ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ischemic stroke has a strong familial component to risk. The Siblings With Ischemic Stroke Study (SWISS) is a genome-wide, family-based analysis that included use of imputed genotypes. The Siblings With Ischemic Stroke Study was conducted to examine the associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and risk of stroke and stroke subtypes within pairs. METHODS The Siblings With Ischemic Stroke Study enrolled 312 probands with ischemic stroke from 70 US and Canadian centers. Affected siblings were ascertained by centers and confirmed by central record review; unaffected siblings were ascertained by telephone contact. Ischemic stroke was subtyped according to Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment criteria. Genotyping was performed with an Illumina 610 quad array (probands) and an Illumina linkage V array (affected siblings). SNPs were imputed by using 1000 Genomes Project data and MACH software. Family-based association analyses were conducted by using the
Support and Information: Presentations and trainings about sibling support have reached audiences across the country to increase awareness of the importance of supporting siblings. Peer support and information sharing happens at the SLNs national conference as well as at state chapter conferences and events. Sibshops are hosted by a number of SLN chapters to provide a fun space for young siblings to meet one another and receive information and peer support in a highly recreational setting. SibNet is the largest online community for adult brothers and sisters of people with disabilities from around the world to connect with each other, with over 4,500 members on Facebook. The Sibling Survival Guide is a book edited by the Sibling Support Project with many contributions from SLN members. The book provides detailed information, resources, and strategies to navigate the journey as a sibling. The SLN website has a wealth of information and resources for people to use across the lifespan. Finally, ...
Background. Transplantation from an HLA-identical sibling is the treatment of choice for young patients with acquired severe aplastic anemia. For the older patient, the acceptable upper age limit for transplantation as first-line treatment varies. So the current analysis sought to identify age or ages at transplantation at which survival differed. Design and Methods. We studied the effect of patient age, adjusting for other significant factors affecting outcomes in 1543 patients with severe aplastic anemia after HLA-identical sibling transplantation using logistic and Cox regression. Age categories (,20 years, 20-40 years ,40 years) were determined using Martingale residual plots for overall survival and categories based on differences in overall survival. Results. Patients aged ,40 years were more likely to have had immunosuppressive therapy, to have a poor performance score and a longer interval from diagnosis to transplant. Neutrophil recovery was similar in all age groups but patients aged ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - . Cognitive alterations in patients with non-affective psychotic disorder and their unaffected siblings and parents. AU - Meijer, J.H.. AU - Simons, C.J.P.. AU - Quee, P.J.. AU - Verweij, K.. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine a range of cognitive measures as candidate phenotypic liability markers for psychosis in a uniquely large sample of patients with psychosis, their unaffected relatives and control subjects. Method: Patients with non-affective psychosis (n=1093), their unaffected siblings (n=1044), parents (n=911), and controls (n=587) completed a comprehensive cognitive test battery. Cognitive functioning was compared using tests of verbal learning and memory, attention/vigilance, working memory, processing speed, reasoning and problem solving, acquired knowledge, and social cognition. Age- and gender-adjusted z-scores were compared between groups using mixed-model analyses of covariance. Clinically relevant impairment (-1 and -2 ...

This is the first study, to our knowledge, to analyze a large number of SCD recipients of HLA-identical sibling transplantation. Five-year survival is excellent, considering that these transplants were performed worldwide and reported to observational registries and that the majority of patients were not enrolled on clinical trials.22⇓⇓⇓⇓-27 Further, we were able to interrogate for risk factors associated with survival and identified important factors: age, graft type, and transplant period. In the context of SCD, HSCT is an elective intervention. Our data support early referral for transplantation when an indication is identified, so that donor search and transplantation of BM, PB, or banked CB from an HLA-identical sibling can be initiated in a timely manner. Further, better supportive care during the immediate and later periods after transplantation has also improved survival. Concurrently, advances in caring for children and adolescents with SCD has also improved substantially to an ...
On a more personal level, while I share the White female identity that we find in the majority of sibling research participants, I am also Queer. As I started thinking about the possible variations in sibling experiences based on different identities, I wondered if there were other Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer siblings out there and if any of them had similar experiences as mine. For many LGBTQ people, coming out to family and friends is something we anticipate and worry about, sometimes for decades. We know that many parents struggle with the news, and in the worst cases, LGBTQ people are completely disowned by family. For many siblings of people with disabilities, we feel pressure to never make waves and to avoid doing or saying anything that might cause our parents to worry. Coming out as LGBTQ can be hard for anyone, and for me, the biggest challenge was in knowing that I would be rocking the boat in my family. Some advice from Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) ...
There has always been some type of differences between siblings, especially different sex siblings. Often, different sex sibling may consider things to be unfair because his/her brother/sister is allowed to do certain things just because of his or her gender, while he or she gets to do something less amusing or just plain different. McHale and her colleague conducted a longitudinal study using middle age children and observed the way in which the parents contributed to stereotypical attitudes in their kids.[38] In their study the experimenters analysed two different types of families, one with the same sex siblings, and the other with different sex siblings, as well as the childrens birth order.[39] The experiment was conducted over phone interviews, in which the experimenters would ask the children about the activities they performed throughout their day outside of school.[40] Surprisingly, the experimenters found that in the homes where there were mixed gender kids, and the father held ...

The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS), funded by the National Cancer Institute, was launched in 1993. The current review involved 1,426 survivors and 384 healthy siblings, including patients treated for brain or central nervous system tumors, leukemia, or lymphoma when they were 20 years of age or younger.. Participants completed several validated tests to evaluate memory, organization, task efficiency, and emotional regulation-all indicators of neurocognitive functioning, as well as answering questionnaires within a three-year period, designed to measure fatigue, sleep quality, daytime sleepiness, and overall vitality. Results were then compared with those of their healthy siblings.. More than 20% of the survivors had neurocognitive problems, with a two-fold greater risk of memory problems among those with sleep problems, daytime sleepiness, and decreased vitality. Patients taking antidepressants were especially prone to cognitive problems, the study found, with a 70% higher risk of memory ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Author(s): Tennille J. Checkovich & Steven Stern. 2002 Abstract: This paper uses a nonstructural, ordered discrete choice model to measure the effects of various parent and child characteristics upon the independent caregiving decisions of the adult children of elderly parents sampled in the 1982 and 1984 National Long Term Care Survey (NLTCS). While significant effects are noted, emphasis is placed on test statistics constructed to measure the independence of caregiving decisions. The test statistic results are conclusive: The caregiving decisions of adult children are dependent across time and family members. Structural models taking dependencies among family members into account note effects similar to those in the nonstructural model.
Kristensen and his colleagues, reporting in Thursdays online version of the journal Science, also concluded it doesnt matter if you arent really the first child. [...] he added with a chuckle, his sister, an FBI intelligence analyst with a degree in literature, reads mostly trashy romance novels. Frank Sulloway, a UC Berkeley professor and birth order expert who wrote an accompanying commentary for Science, noted that the difference in IQ between the oldest child and siblings was a measly 2.3 points. Sulloway said the findings dont really mean much for individual families, but they do have larger implications for the overall population in that older siblings who do better on standardized tests, in fact, tend to get into better colleges. The results put to rest one theory among researchers that a difference in IQ is due to some adverse effects during subsequent pregnancies, Kristensen said. San Rafael psychologist and first-born child Ann Buscho theorized that older siblings might do better on
A prolonged outbreak of pertussis occurred in Australia, including south metropolitan Perth, between 2008 and 2012. This report demonstrates high proportions of siblings as infant pertussis sources in the 2011-2012 period, in line with a higher risk of infection in children over this period.
[...] while comprehending whos with whom when two sisters marry two brothers can leave outsiders bewildered, families involved say the tangle of kin can make life more convenient and brings them closer together. Some marriage experts hypothesize the relationship occurs less in the United States than it did years ago because Americans are more mobile; brothers and sisters are more likely to settle in cities far from one another, and the ease of travel gives them more choices for spouses. Double couples and people who study them say its logical that siblings would share traits that siblings from another family might find desirable. If you think about either the biological draw that we have toward another person or the attraction we have toward another person because of our own roots and how we were raised, it does make sense that youre going to be attracted to someone who comes from the same home and the same genetic pool, said Scott Haltzman, a psychiatrist at Brown University who specializes in
Siblings who donate bone marrow to their brothers or sisters are more adaptive at school, their teachers tell researchers, but the children themselves arent so sure. These same sibling-donors report more anxiety and lower self-esteem than do non-donor siblings of transplant patients.
Im so glad to read Im not alone in this hope for equality. My brother and I had a relationship for almost 3 years. It wasnt planned, but just kind of happened when we started living together. We didnt know each other for 12 years of our life. We never grew up together. We remembered each other and knew that we were biologically siblings but after one night of talking about it we couldnt fully see us as such. I fell in love and so did he. We were always so careful about being safe but we suspect that my daughter...my first child...is his as well. It once again wasnt planned as much as I had been trying to become pregnant. I knew I had to be careful...but she was the best accident of my life. Unfortunately he has given up...and I have been married to a man I care about and am pregnant with my husbands and my second son (2 kids total between us) but its not the same love I feel for my brother. A siblings love is so pure because its your sibling...you know they will always be there. We still ...
If you have even a marginal interest in evolutionary biology you will probably have heard of Hamiltons Rule, a simple formal representation of the logic whereby a gene which favors altruism may spread through a population: rB , C, where r = coefficient of relatedness on the gene in question, B = benefit to those related, and C = cost to oneself. The idea is almost trivially obvious. Consider that you are in a situation where you are faced with the possibility of aiding your full sibling at a cost to yourself. Now imagine that you carry a single allele which favors altruism toward close relations. Your sibling has a 50% probability of carrying that allele identical by descent (lets stay haploid for simplicity). From a genes eye view it benefits the allele to predispose you to helping your kin in direct proportion to the probability that your kin carry that allele. In other words the logic underlying inclusive fitness isnt really that abstract, it is ordered around the benefits and costs to ...

Background: In many societies, growing up in a large family is associated with receiving less parental time, attention, and financial support. As a result, children with a large number of siblings may have worse physical and mental health outcomes than children with fewer siblings.. Objective: Our objective is to examine the long-term causal effects of sibship size on physical and mental health in modern Sweden.. Methods: We employ longitudinal data covering the entire Swedish population from the Multigenerational Register and the Medical Birth Register. This data includes information on family size and on potential confounders such as parental background. We use the Prescribed Drug Register to identify the medicines that have been prescribed and dispensed. We use instrumental variable models with multiple births as instruments to examine the causal effects of family size on the health outcomes of children, as measured by receiving medicines at age 45.. Results: Our results indicate that in ...
Roy and Gretchen Jacksons La Ville Rouge, dam of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, foaled the latest full sibling to the ill-fated classic winner when she delivered a colt by Dynaformer on Wednesday at Lexingtons Mill Ridge Farm.
We examined associations of maternal age at childbearing (MAC) with gestational age and fetal growth (i.e., birth weight adjusting for gestational age), using two genetically informed designs (cousin and sibling comparisons) and data from two cohorts, a population-based Swedish sample and a nationally representative United States sample. We also conducted sensitivity analyses to test limitations of the designs. The findings were consistent across samples and suggested that, associations observed in the population between younger MAC and shorter gestational age were confounded by shared familial factors; however, associations of advanced MAC with shorter gestational age remained robust after accounting for shared familial factors. In contrast to the gestational age findings, neither early nor advanced MAC was associated with lower fetal growth after accounting for shared familial factors. Given certain assumptions, these findings provide support for a causal association between advanced MAC and ...

OBJECTIVE: To study the impact of maternal smoking during pregnancy on fractures in offspring during different developmental stages of life. DESIGN: National register based birth cohort study with a sibling comparison design. SETTING: Sweden. PARTICIPANTS: 1 680 307 people born in Sweden between 1983 and 2000 to women who smoked (n=377 367, 22.5%) and did not smoke (n=1 302 940) in early pregnancy. Follow-up was until 31 December 2014. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Fractures by attained age up to 32 years. RESULTS: During a median follow-up of 21.1 years, 377 970 fractures were observed (the overall incidence rate for fracture standardised by calendar year of birth was 11.8 per 1000 person years). The association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and risk of fracture in offspring differed by attained age. Maternal smoking was associated with a higher rate of fractures in offspring before 1 year of age in the entire cohort (birth year standardised fracture rates in those exposed and unexposed to ...
Our study of placental weight in the offspring with and without heterozygous mutations in the GCK gene supports the hypothesis that fetal insulin may directly or indirectly regulate placental growth. We found significant correlations of placental weight with umbilical cord insulin concentrations and birth weight, confirming relationships seen in previous studies (7,8) and in agreement with data from diabetic pregnancies (12-14). The GCK study gives us more insight into the direction of the causal relationship. In the GCK mutation pregnancies, the weight of the placenta, like birth weight, depended on the mutation status of the fetus. We have shown that the babies who inherited the mutation had a lighter placenta than the babies without the mutation. This finding was demonstrated most clearly in the discordant sibling analysis (Fig. 1), but a significant difference was also seen when all babies were compared with all controls, showing that the presence of the mutation results in a smaller ...
We test a variety of polygenic predictors using tens of thousands of genetic siblings for whom we have SNP genotypes, health status, and phenotype information in late adulthood. Siblings have typically experienced similar environments during childhood, and exhibit negligible population stratification relative to each other. Therefore, the ability to predict differences in disease risk or complex trait values between siblings is a strong test of genomic prediction in humans. We compare validation results obtained using non-sibling subjects to those obtained among siblings and find that typically most of the predictive power persists in within-family designs. In the case of disease risk we test the extent to which higher polygenic risk score (PRS) identifies the affected sibling, and also compute Relative Risk Reduction as a function of risk score threshold. For quantitative traits we examine between-sibling differences in trait values as a function of predicted differences, and compare to ...

About 20% of younger siblings of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will develop the condition by age 3. A new study by Yale School of Medicine researchers has found that 57% of these younger siblings who later develop the condition already showed symptoms at age 18 months.
We believe that siblings of children (and adults) with disability have much to contribute but also need support themselves. We also recognise that it can be difficult juggling the needs of your whole family - and you might be dealing with a range of mixed emotions yourself about the changes that have occurred in your family. It is very likely that the brothers and sisters of your child with disability will also have a mix of feelings and experiences, but they are unlikely to have the understanding and emotional maturity to deal with what is happening around them. Support can make all the difference.. The disability is only one factor in how your family functions. If you are able to communicate effectively and support each other, you will be more able to manage the challenges together. There is probably much you are already doing to support siblings and it is hoped that the resources in the left menu and below will give you some new ideas.. ...

TUESDAY, Nov. 7, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Sibling rivalry -- the jealousy and competition between your children -- can start even before baby number two is born, according to experts at the C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital of Michigan Medicine.. How siblings relate to each other and to parents can change as they go through the stages of childhood. Toddlers starting to assert themselves may squawk when a sibling grabs one of their toys. Elementary school kids who have learned about sharing may act out if they think a younger sibling -- such as a newborn -- is getting a greater share of attention than they are. Teens longing for independence may resent having to babysit for a sibling and show displeasure by snubbing the child or mom and dad.. To tamp down the misbehaviors of sibling rivalry, give each child one-on-one attention thats meaningful to him or her. That could be playing a board game with one and curling up to watch a movie with another. Its also important to have quality family time, ...
