 had showed that neonatal and infant mortality was higher in consanguineous mating. Studies by Nath et al.
Several studies had showed that infant mortality was higher in consanguineous mating and the difference was statistically significant [11,20,23]
In this paper, although the authors did use limited bivariate analysis, yet they could not account for socio-economic status difference and background demographic variables with increased fertility and mortality in consanguineous mating
. That is my major concern before drawing any conclusions.
If consanguineous mating is recurrent, [Mathematical Expression Omitted] reaches an equilibrium state [Mathematical Expression Omitted], which depends on the co-ancestry of mating relatives, the rate of inbreeding, and C.
For the case of consanguineous mating, the genotype of a marker locus is more highly correlated with identity by descent for loci on its own chromosome than those elsewhere in the genome, so loci on large chromosomes should show slightly more heterosis than those on small chromosomes.
I consider a large diploid population with nonoverlapping generations, in which consanguineous matings take place with probability S, and random matings with probability 1 n - S, where S [much less than] 1.
While consanguineous matings
continue to be commonly practiced in several areas of Algeria, their health impact remains underestimated because of the limited number of epidemiological studies.
in the Iraqi urban population and the effect on pregnancy outcome and infant mortality.
The rate and socio-economic factors associated with consanguineous matings
among 4498 Saudi families living in Riyadh have been evaluated.
