  1. 11. Multiple sclerosis linkage analysis and DNA variation in a complex trait

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Occupational Therapy and Elderly Care Research (NEUROTEC)

    Author : Helena Modin; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]

    Abstract : Multiple sclerosis is a life-long disease affecting approximately 11.000 individuals in Sweden today. It is the second most common cause of neurological disability amongst young adults, only outnumbered by traffic accidents. Genetic epidemiological studies indicate that genetic factors contribute to the susceptibility of MS. READ MORE

  2. 12. Prevalence and Inheritance of Hip Osteoarthritis in Iceland

    University dissertation from Thorvaldur Ingvarsson FSA Central Hospital, 600 Akureyri Iceland

    Author : Thorvaldur Ingvarsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; gene; inheritance; age standardiation; prevalence; THR; Hip; OA; traumatologi; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatology; orthopaedics;

    Abstract : Hereditary factors are suggested to contribute to osteoarthritis (OA), but their relative importance is uncertain. Moreover, the underlying specific variations at the genome level remain unknown. The prevalence of hip OA in Iceland was assessed by examining colon radiographs and was found to be at least 5-fold higher compared to Sweden and Denmark. READ MORE

  3. 13. Identification of Candidate Genes in Four Human Disorders

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malin Melin; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Genetics; Ichthyosis; Leukodystrophy; Kostmann disease; Autism; Genetic disorders; Candidate gene; Genetik;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis has been to identify genes and gene regions underlying four different disorders. In papers I-IV, positional cloning methods, such as linkage, association and haplotype analysis have been used for the identification of genomic regions associated with the ichthyosis prematurity syndrome (IPS), adult-onset autosomal dominant leukodystrophy (ADLD) and Kostmann disease.

    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. 15. Clinical and Genetic Studies of Hearing Impairment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carina Frykholm; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Otorhinolaryngology; NF2; array-CGH; Meniere’s disease; PIK3C2G; X-linked; progressive; hearing impairment; Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Monogenic disorders offer a possibility for studies of genetic disturbances in hearing impairment—a knowledge which could be essential for development of future treatment options. In this thesis, the underlying genetic disturbances in neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) and familial Meniere’s disease (FMD) were evaluated, and familial X-linked hearing impairment was described from a clinical point of view.
