BACKGROUND The lactase persistent (LP) or lactase non-persistent (LNP) state in European adults is genetically determined by a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) located 13.9 kb upstream of the lactase (LCT) gene, known as LCT C>T(-13910) (rs4988235). The LNP condition leads to an inability to digest the milk sugar lactose leading to gastrointestinal(More)
We estimated the allele frequencies for the 15 autosomal STR loci included in the AmpFlSTR(®) Identifiler (Applied Biosystems, USA) in a sample of 986 unrelated non-Native American individuals collected at five different localities from Chile, namely, Iquique, Santiago, Concepción, Temuco and Punta Arenas. Frequency distributions and several forensic(More)
BACKGROUND This study analyzes the biochemical, serological, and virological efficacy and the safety of adefovir dipivoxil in patients with renal disturbances. METHODS Twelve patients with lamivudine-resistant hepatitis B virus (HBV) chronic infection were treated for a median time of 15 (3-19) months. The daily dosage was 10 mg initially and then(More)
We analyzed the Y chromosome haplotypes (Yfiler) of 978 non-related Chilean males grouped in five sampling regions (Iquique, Santiago de Chile, Concepción, Temuco and Punta Arenas) covering main geo-political regions. Overall, 803 different haplotypes and 688 singletons were observed. Molecular diversity was moderately lower than in other neighboring(More)
