Weight-loss interventions generally improve lipid profiles and reduce cardiovascular disease risk, but effects are variable and may depend on genetic factors. We performed a genetic association analysis of data from 2,993 participants in the Diabetes Prevention Program to test the hypotheses that a genetic risk score (GRS) based on deleterious alleles at 32(More)

An electrochemical sensor for the measurement of the superoxide anion produced as a result of the respiratory burst of neutrophils is described. The reduction of cytochrome c by the superoxide ion was monitored using a surface-modified gold electrode. The current produced was shown to be superoxide-specific and proportional to the number of neutrophils in(More)
