A Preliminary Genome-Wide Association Study of Acute Mountain Sickness Susceptibility in a Group of Nepalese Pilgrims Ascending to 4380 m.
To identify genes related to AMS susceptibility, a genome-wide association study was used to simultaneously test associations between genetic variants dispersed throughout the genome and the presence and severity of AMS.
Evidence for and Against Genetic Predispositions to Acute and Chronic Altitude Illnesses.
In the past 5 years, the use of genomic techniques has helped bolster the claim that susceptibility to some altitude illnesses is likely the result of genetic variation.
Free Flight Physiology: Paragliding and the Study of Extreme Altitude.
Equipment for the study was provided by the University of Portsmouth Department of Sports Science, the University of Exeter Link Fund Award and Research QR uplift fund. We gratefully acknowledge the…
