We examined relationships among alcohol intake, dietary fat composition, and total body fat (TBF) and central abdominal fat (CAF), independent of genetic confounders, and evaluated the modulating effect of genetic suscep...
A major weakness in many high-throughput genomic studies is the lack of consideration of a clinical environment where one patient at a time must be evaluated. We examined generalizable and platform-specific sources of va...
Virtual reality surgical simulators have proven value in the acquisition and assessment of laparoscopic skills. In this study, we investigated skill transfer from a virtual reality laparoscopic simulator into the operati...
Use of a briefer incubation interval in several steroid radioimmunoassays markedly increases cross reactions with some closely related steroids. The dissociation rates of the various steroid/antibody complexes play a cri...
In the context of islet transplantation, experimental models show that induction of islet intrinsic NF-kappaB-dependent pro-inflammatory genes can contribute to islet graft rejection. Isolation of human islets triggers a...
We conducted a genome-wide association study of low bone mineral density (BMD) at the hip and spine utilizing sequence variants found through whole-genome sequencing of 2636 Icelanders. We found two rare missense mutatio...
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and noradrenaline are commonly co-expressed in sympathetic neurons. Both are key regulators of energy homeostasis and critical for stress-coping. However, little is known about the specific function ...
The genetic determinants of osteoporosis remain poorly understood and there is a large unmet need for new treatments in our aging society. Thus, new approaches for gene discovery in skeletal disease are required to compl...
Bone mass and its mineral content are under genetic control. The vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene has been shown to be a major locus for genetic effects on bone mineral density (BMD), and polymorphisms in this gene accounte...
