  1. 1. Genetics of Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome: From Genome Wide Linkage Scan and Candidate Genes to Genome Wide Association Studies

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Marketa Sjögren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are major health problems associated with cardiovascular disease. Both diseases are influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The aim of this thesis was to identify genetic risk factors for T2D, particularly T2D associated with obesity, and for MetS. READ MORE

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia resulting from pancreatic dysfunction and insulin resistance. It is a common disorder with a complex pattern of inheritance, likely to reflect the influence of multiple genetic and environmental factors on the diabetes risk. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic studies of stroke in Northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Sofie Nilsson Ardnor; Umeå universitet.; [2006]

    Abstract : Stroke is a common disorder of later life with a complex etiology, including both environmental and genetic risk factors. The inherited predisposition is challenging to study due to the complexity of the stroke phenotype. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic epidemiology of prostate cancer

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; prostate cancer; epidemiology; genetics; linkage analysis; genome-wide scan; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is a major health burden throughout the world, yet the etiology of prostate cancer is poorly understood. Evidence has accumulated supporting the existence of a hereditary form of this disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mapping genetic diseases in northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Elisabet Einarsdottir; Umeå universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : The population of northern Sweden has previously been shown to be well suited for the mapping of monogenic diseases. In this thesis we have tested the hypothesis that this population could also be used for efficient identification of risk genes for common diseases. READ MORE
