Currently, existing OACs, such as warfarin, are suboptimal due to their propensity to interact negatively with commonly prescribed drugs, and due to widespread genetic variability
Deer as wildlife are often exposed to extensive loss of genetic variability
as a result of increasing isolation and subdivision of wild populations by alteration of the landscape and constant slaughtering by humans for venison, hides and antlers, and for sports.
To that end, this study will seek to expand and improve an understanding of how genetic variability
affects response to prescribed medications to help improve medication choices and efficacy, and minimize side effects - potentially resulting in improved patient care.
The number of partners was predicted by genetic variability
, said Simmons.
The cattle sample (Mongolian) showed significantly higher genetic variability
in human immunodeficiency viruses.
But in the western swath, the genetic variability
in the chipmunks is telling, and it's lower at southern sites than at northern ones.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is interested in projects that can potentially lead to meaningful improvements in clinical and survival endpoints, and in studies of genetic variability
in human populations that may influence risk of preneoplastic conditions or primary and secondary malignancies after exposure to medications, including cancer therapies.
Genizon conducts genome-wide association studies involving more than 40,000 members of the Quebec Founder Population, whose extensive genetic sharing and low genetic variability
are ideally suited for the discovery of genes affecting people worldwide in the many common diseases with strong genetic components.
29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A new genetic substudy of PLATO (A Study of PLATelet Inhibition and Patient Outcomes) showed that the effects on a combined primary endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke seen in Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) patients who received the investigational oral antiplatelet treatment, ticagrelor (BRILINTA(TM)), were maintained, whether or not they had the genetic variability
that has been previously shown to affect a patient's response to clopidogrel.
In addition, genetically important individuals for the maintenance of genetic variability
of the sub-breed were also identified through the core set method.
We tested for HCoV-NL63 in children with acute respiratory tract infection hospitalized in Caen from November 2002 to April 2003, described symptoms associated with this infection, and examined local strains for the genetic variability
