The incidence of diagnosed coeliac disease increased steeply in Swedish children born after 1982, when a change in infant feeding recommendations was made. READ MORE

  2. 2. The genetic basis for adaptation in natural populations

    Author : Sangeet Lamichhaney; Leif Andersson; Carl-Johan Rubin; Alvaro Martinez Barrio; Henrik Kaessmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Adaptive evolution; Atlantic herring; ecological adaptation; seasonal reproduction; TSHR; Darwin’s finches; natural selection; beak; ALX1; HMGA2; ruff; lek; inversion; HSD17B2; MC1R;

    Abstract : Many previous studies in evolutionary genetics have been based on few model organisms that can be reared at ease in the laboratory. In contrast, genetic studies of non-model, natural populations are desirable as they provide a wider range of adaptive phenotypes throughout evolutionary timescales and allow a more realistic understanding of how natural selection drives adaptive evolution.

    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is one of the most fatal diseases in the world today, and the most important worldwide infectious disease in terms of mortality.

  4. 4. Exploring health-seeking behaviour of disadvantaged populations in rural Bangladesh

    Author : Syed Masud Ahmed; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Bangladesh; disadvantaged populations; health-seeking behaviour; health-system; self-care;

    Abstract : Background: Improving ability of the health system to reach the poor/disadvantaged populations is important for health and essential to mitigate the income-erosion consequences of ill- health in Bangladesh. This study examined the health-seeking behaviour of some identified disadvantaged population groups, including the effect of poverty focused non-governmental development interventions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies on autoimmune diabetes in Latvians and other populations

    Author : Aija Shtauvere-Braméus; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : IDDM is an autoimmune disease, characterized by autoimmune mediated loss of insulin secreting B- cells. GAD65 and IA-2 are major B-cell specific autoantibodies and are not found in healthy population. IDDM is associated with certain HLA class II alleles. IDDM is positively associated with HLA DR3 and DR4 in Caucasians. READ MORE
