an·tic·i·pa·tion

(an-tis'i-pā'shŭn),
1. Appearance before the appointed time of a periodic symptom or sign.
2. Progressively earlier age of manifestation of a hereditary disease in successive generations; may be factitious (because of heightened awareness of early signs of the disease or because these signs are more conspicuous in the young) or authentic (because of progressive loss of epistatic and modifier genes by recombination and segregation, or because of expansion of unstable alleles in successive generations).
3. An increase in the severity of a phenotype in successive generations of a family, often associated with an increase in the number of trinucleotide repeats in a causative gene (e.g., fragile X syndrome, myotonic dystrophy, Huntington disease).

anticipation

[antis′ipā′shən]
an appearance before the expected time of a periodic sign or symptom. Examples are a malarial paroxysm or a hereditary disorder.

anticipation

An anomalous pattern of inheritance, first identified by researcher Stephanie Sherman, in which the manifestations of a particular inherited disorder (Sherman studied Fragile X syndrome) are more marked with each passing generation of patients who are at risk of a certain mutation. Anticipation results from two genetic events; a premutation (e.g., insertion of increasing number of the trinucleotide repeat CGG), which eventually passes a threshold and becomes an active mutation in the progeny.

an·tic·i·pa·tion

(ăn-tis'i-pā'shŭn)
Foreknowledge or expectation.
[L. anticipatio, fr. anticipo, to take before]

The occurrence of a hereditary disease at progressively earlier ages, and in progressively more severe form, in successive generations. This is a feature of a range of conditions that includes myotonic dystrophy, the fragile X syndrome and Huntington's disease.

Patient discussion about anticipation

Q. Can anyone help us by giving some dietary information to reduce on her stress? Thank you in anticipation. My aunt is suffering from breast cancer for the past 3 years. She lives in a village. She feels good after the treatment. She is having poor immunity due to which she gets cold easily. She often gets sick. This has to a great extent affected her sleep pattern also. Doctor has advised her to control the stress and also to reduce on barbeques, as she takes them a lot. We are helping her to find different ways to reduce the stress.

A. what we eat has an immense effect on our mood, and the other way around...
