The FTO (Fat mass and obesity associated) locus has recently been associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in humans. To understand the role of the FTO gene in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) we genotyped single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1421085 (C/T) in women with PCOS (n=207) and controls (n=100) from a Central European population. The(More)
This work aimed to prospectively record all primary central nervous system tumor (PCNST) cases in France, for which histological diagnosis is available. The objectives were to (i) create a national registry and a network to perform epidemiological studies; (ii) implement clinical and basic research protocols; and (iii) harmonize the health care of patients(More)
To assess the role of the insulin receptor gene in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) we performed a case-control study in a female population (n=226) from Central Europe by examining the genetic associations of single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs8107575, rs2245648, rs2245649, rs2963, rs2245655, and rs2962) and inferred haplotypes around exon 9 of this gene.(More)
Interleukin 10 (IL10) is associated with maternal immunotolerance. IL10 also down-regulates decidual cell tissue factor expression, the main molecule triggering coagulation activation: this antithrombotic effect may protect the umbilicoplacental vasculature from the 10th wk of gestation onward. IL10 down-regulation may thus dispose to early pregnancy loss(More)
FTO gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been shown to be associated with obesity-related traits and type 2 diabetes. Several small studies have suggested a greater than expected effect of the FTO rs9939609 SNP on weight in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). We therefore aimed to examine the impact of FTO genotype on BMI and weight in PCOS. A(More)
BACKGROUND Variants in the fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene are associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. AIM OF THE STUDY This study aims to assess the association of the rs9939609 variant and haplotypes in FTO gene with metabolic syndrome (MetS) components in a Tunisian population sample. METHODS A total of 685 Tunisian subjects(More)
Recent studies have suggested that calpain-10 (CAPN10) gene polymorphisms play a role in the susceptibility to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible association between three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CAPN10 gene: UCSNP-43 (rs3792267), UCSNP-19 (rs3842570), and UCSNP-63 (rs5030952) and(More)
The FTO (fat mass and obesity associated) gene was associated with different metabolic disorders in populations from different origins but with great difference between African and non-African populations. North-African populations combine many genetic backgrounds, among which African, Berber and Caucasian components, which makes North-Africans a good model(More)
INTRODUCTION Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) results from an atypical immune response with synthesis of IgG antibodies (Abs) to platelet factor 4/heparin complexes (PF4/H), and probably involves both B and T cells. We investigated whether 3 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), rs1800896 (-1082G/A), rs1800871 (-819C/T) and rs1800872 (-592C/A) and(More)
AIMS Variants in the fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO) are associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, the association of FTO variants in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region with MetS is largely unknown. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of FTO gene with MetS and its components in Tunisian population. (More)
