Genome-wide association study of acute kidney injury after coronary bypass graft surgery identifies susceptibility loci.
(Kidney Int, 2015-10)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common, serious complication of cardiac surgery. Since prior studies have supported a genetic basis for postoperative AKI, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) for AKI following ...
Trade-offs in the effects of the apolipoprotein E polymorphism on risks of diseases of the heart, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders: insights on mechanisms from the Long Life Family Study.
(Rejuvenation Res, 2015-04)
The lack of evolutionary established mechanisms linking genes to age-related traits makes the problem of genetic susceptibility to health span inherently complex. One complicating factor is genetic trade-off. Here we focused ...
HPV16 antibodies as risk factors for oropharyngeal cancer and their association with tumor HPV and smoking status.
(Oral Oncol, 2015-07)
BACKGROUND: Antibodies (Abs) to the HPV16 proteome increase risk for HPV-associated OPC (HPVOPC). The goal of this study was to investigate the association of a panel of HPV16 Abs with risk for OPC as well as the association ...
Polymorphisms in the kinesin-like factor 1 B gene and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer in Eastern Chinese women.
(Tumour Biol, 2015-09)
The kinesin-like factor 1 B (KIF1B) gene plays an important role in the process of apoptosis and the transformation and progression of malignant cells. Genetic variations in KIF1B may contribute to risk of epithelial ovarian ...
Genetic variants in the TEP1 gene are associated with prostate cancer risk and recurrence.
(Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis, 2015-12)
BACKGROUND: Telomere-related genes play an important role in carcinogenesis and progression of prostate cancer (PCa). It is not fully understood whether genetic variations in telomere-related genes are associated with development ...
Genetic variant of PRKAA1 and gastric cancer risk in an eastern Chinese population.
Published data on the association between PRKAA1 rs13361707 T > C polymorphism and gastric cancer (GCa) susceptibility were inconclusive. To derive a more precise estimation of the association, we conducted a large-scale ...
