    It has been hypothesized that rare variants may hold the key to unraveling the genetic transmission mechanism of many common complex traits. Currently, there is a dearth of statistical methods that are powerful enough to detect association with rare haplotypes. One of the recently proposed...

    Background: Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most frequent cause of motor handicap among children. Aim of the study: We aim to study the relation of epilepsy in children with CP to various risk factors that affect the development of seizures. Patients and methods: In a cross-sectional, descriptive,...

    Background: Standard logistic regression with or without stepwise selection has the disadvantage of not incorporating model uncertainty and the dependency of estimates on the underlying model into the final inference. We explore the use of a Bayes Model Averaging approach as an alternative to...

Wendy; Ursin, Giske // Carcinogenesis;Aug2010, Vol. 31 Issue 8, p1392 

    Background: It is well established that estrogen increases endometrial cancer risk, whereas progesterone opposes the estrogen effects. The PROGINS allele of the progesterone receptor (PGR) gene reduces the function of PGR and has been associated with increased risk of the endometrioid type...
