    Abstract : Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age. On a global level, iodine deficiency is still the most common cause of hypothyroidism. Also genetic variations, in particular SNP rs4704397 in the PDE8B gene, are responsible for a significant proportion of TSH variations. READ MORE

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; genome-wide association studies;

    Abstract : SummaryCancer is a multifactorial inheritance disorder caused by a combination of small variations in genes, often acting together with environmental factors. GWASs provide a potential method to investigate the genetic basis of such complex diseases, but they are limited to two main classes of cancer susceptibility variants with different levels of risk and prevalence in the general population: rare moderate­penetrance variants or common low­penetrance alleles.
