A genetic epidemiological study of hereditary diseases of the nervous system (HDNS) was conducted in the cities of Volgograd and Volzhsky for the first time. In total, 1 323 500 individuals were examined including the populations of Volgograd and Volzhsky (1 012 800 and 310 700 persons, respectively). The prevalence of neurological diseases with autosomal dominant (AD), autosomal recessive (AR), and X-linked recessive inheritance was estimated. These data were compared with the estimates previously obtained for different population of the Russian Federation. A decrease was found in general HDNS load in Volgograd and Volzhsky. The compared populations were shown to differ in a contribution of AD, AR, and X-linked recessive diseases into the HDNS load formation.

Abstract

A genetic epidemiological study of hereditary diseases of the nervous system (HDNS) was conducted in the cities of Volgograd and Volzhsky for the first time. In total, 1 323 500 individuals were examined including the populations of Volgograd and Volzhsky (1 012 800 and 310 700 persons, respectively). The prevalence of neurological diseases with autosomal dominant (AD), autosomal recessive (AR), and X-linked recessive inheritance was estimated. These data were compared with the estimates previously obtained for different population of the Russian Federation. A decrease was found in general HDNS load in Volgograd and Volzhsky. The compared populations were shown to differ in a contribution of AD, AR, and X-linked recessive diseases into the HDNS load formation. The possible effect of population dynamics factors on the HDNS load structure is discussed.
