The geographic variation patterns of vascular mortality and their major risk factors from 68 samples in Eurasia are described in this work. The goodness-of-fit tests and analysis of variance indicate significant differences in incidence of mortality from the studied diseases, as well as in risk factors among the various geographic regions in four age(More)
A sample of 681 Israeli boys and girls, including 355 regular siblings (SB), 112 pairs of dizygotic (DZ) and 51 pairs of monozygotic (MZ) twins, was measured for body weight (WT), length (HT) and head circumference (HC) at birth and during the first year of life. The Count model with three parameters was chosen as the best fitting and most parsimonious(More)
The age of attainment for four motor developmental traits, such as turning over, sitting up without support, pulling up to a standing position and walking without support, was examined in 822 children, including 626 siblings from families with 2 to 6 children, 68 pairs of dizygotic twins and 30 pairs of monozygotic twins. Correlation analysis, carried out(More)
This study was carried out to determine the seroprevalence of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) antibodies in camels presented for slaughter at the Maiduguri abattoir using a BVDV specific indirect enzyme-linkedimmunosorbent assay (ELISA). Ninety (90) serum samples collected from adult male and female camels were tested for BVDV antibodies. From the(More)
Serum calcitonin has become a very sensitive and specific marker for medullary thyroid carcinoma that should be determined in patients with nodular thyroid disease. However, a few earlier reports indicated that tumors other than medullary thyroid carcinoma including insulinomas arising from pancreatic islet cells may also produce calcitonin. Of the few(More)
To determine the association of the Apolipoprotein E (APOE) E4 gene polymorphism with bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures we conducted a meta-analysis of 17 reports. Despite lower trochanteric and lumbar BMD in APOE4 carriers, there is insufficient evidence to support a consistent association of APOE with bone health. APOE has been studied for its(More)
A sample of 1931 Israeli infants was measured for body weight (WT), length (HT) and head circumference (HC) for approximately 2 years. The Count model with 3 parameters was chosen as the best fitting and most parsimonious function to approximate growth of all 3 studied traits. In the model parameter a relates to birth indices, b--to velocity of growth, and(More)
