    African-Americans have a significantly lower response rate to treatment for chronic hepatitis C than non-Hispanic whites, according to a new study led by Duke University Medical Center researchers. The study showed the difference in infection rates between the two groups is not responsible for...

    Several variants at DBH are significantly associated with plasma DβH activity (pDβH). However, the overwhelming majority of data on this genotype–phenotype relationship has been gathered in samples from Europeans and European Americans (EAs). In this study, we examined the...

    Background The expense of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) allele genotyping has motivated the development of imputation methods that use dense single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotype data and the region's haplotype structure, but the performance of these methods in admixed populations (such...

    Most studies comparing the response of African American (AA) patients to other groups for treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) have been performed in academic centers in the setting of clinical trials. In general, AA patients have lower response rates that are only partially explained by...

    Racial disparity in spontaneous preterm birth (PTB) between African Americans and Caucasians in the US is unexplained, but is probably related to differences in amniotic fluid (AF) inflammatory cytokine profiles. Therefore, this study analyzed the association of 34 single nucleotide...

    Studies of recombination and how it varies depend crucially on accurate recombination maps. We propose a new approach for constructing high-resolution maps of relative recombination rates based on the observation of ancestry switch points among admixed individuals. We show the utility of this...

    Evidence shows that an elevated pulse pressure (PP) may lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. There is also evidence that PP is a sexually dimorphic trait, and that genetic factors influence inter-individual variation in PP. The aim of this project was to assess...

    Two genome-wide association studies for meningococcal disease and tuberculosis identify new loci associated with susceptibility to these infectious diseases. They highlight a role for the acquired and innate immune systems in host control of several human pathogens and demonstrate that denser...
