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 ...
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 ...
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.. ...

Successful support for the siblings of children who have died should be continuous. Julie Griffiths reports on a hospice in Wales that provides long-lasting and honest therapy for bereaved children. Project details. ● Project name: Tŷ Hafans sibling bereavement groups.. ● Aims and objectives: Children coming to terms with the loss of a sibling.. ● Numbers of service users: About 25 each session, split into three age groups.. ● Cost of project: Several hundred pounds per group including the cost of lunch, materials and equipment for making memory prompts. Sessions are free to participants.. ● Timescale: Sessions run three times per year.. The death of a child is traumatic and overwhelming for parents. Often support is needed to minimise the damage this can cause parents and the dead childs brothers and sisters. Welsh childrens hospice Tŷ Hafan helps families in this situation by running bereaved sibling groups three times a year. Lynne Doyle, sibling support co-ordinator at Tŷ ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

My other favorite scenes are of siblings, and they reminded me of how lucky I am to have been born first. The Mongolian brothers, one a one year-old or so with his older brother of around four, are hilarious. In one scene older brother is swatting younger brother with a towel and younger brother begins to sob until his elder gets in trouble. Younger brother stops sobbing, seeming to listen to his older brother getting chastened, and, when the mother begins to relent, the younger brother starts again to howl. In another scene, we see older brother dragging the stroller in which younger brother is sitting from its place by the door out to the cow pasture to bother the cows. Older brothers clearly had enough of this intruder ...
Events began in 1992 with small symptoms after my fathers sudden death. Mom was always very dependent on dad and didnt do any of the banking or household administration for as long as they were together (approximately 40 years). There are 3 children in my family: sibling1, sibling2 and me, "citygirl". For the first 8 years of the disease, we manage mom as well as we can. Her symptoms are mild enough that its manageable. I sought advice from a counselling centre at school and learned about Alzheimers. I mentioned this to my siblings who shot the idea down with "moms just getting old or missing dad". But I knew mom was facing something much larger and darker than age or heartache ...
