Background : The human homologue of the mouse progressive ankylosis (ANKH) gene is one of the key genetic factors involved in bone mineralization. Previous studies have shown that plasma levels of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) are associated with the distal region of the...
The rate of weight gain of malnourished children in realimentation programmes varies substantially; however, predictors of variation are infrequently reported. The aim of this study was to assess a set of hypothesized predictors to the rate of weight gain of a sample of children attending a...
Objective : Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a long-term complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Genetic studies on DN have been of little help so far, since several genetic association studies have shown conflicting results. Here we report the findings of a case-control study on five SNPs...
Background : Childhood environment is known to affect stature in childhood and adulthood. Peak growth for different anthropometric measures occurs at different times and so associations with childhood conditions that vary across different components of stature may indicate periods of growth that...
Background : The present study examines genomic variation among three tribal (Nayakpod, Thoti and Kolam) and a caste (Niyogi Brahmin) population groups of Andhra Pradesh, south India. Aim : The present study examined the genomic diversity of the populations in relation to other population groups...
Background : Populations in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico are at high risk for malnutrition and marginalization. Aim : The study compared secular changes in the growth status of urban and rural schoolchildren in the Valley of Oaxaca between the 1970s and 2000. Subjects and methods :...
This report presents allele frequency and absolute genotype data of the short tandem repeat (STR) loci HUMTH01, HUMVWA31A, HUMCSF1PO and HUMTPOX for three autochthonous Amerindian populations living in the Beni Department of Bolivia. These related groups are the Quechua, Aymara and Beni...
Background : There is strong evidence of a positive secular trend in physical growth and body mass index (BMI) in most of the world over the last 20 years. However, no studies on this trend have been reported in Shandong Province, China. Aim : The present study assessed the secular trend in BMI...
