Thanks to the development of molecular genetics methods it is now possible to look for the genes which may contribute to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Polymorphism located in exon III of dopamine receptor type 4 (DRD4) gene was related to maladaptive stress responses as well as temperament traits related to PTSD. This study analyzed the association(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the average HIV infection duration and the level of quantitatively rated post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and social support dimensions in a sample of 562 Polish HIV+ adults. Possible moderating effects of social support on the relationship between the average HIV infection(More)
This article presents a study of relations between temperament traits and coping style, and intensity of trauma symptoms in HIV+ men and women. The study was run on 310 HIV + individuals (157 men and 153 women) in or not in the AIDS phase. Temperament traits were assessed with the Formal characteristics of behaviour - temperament inventory. Coping styles(More)
Results obtained in earlier studies indicate that 5-HTT gene polymorphisms may have a certain impact on individual differences with respect to temperamental traits. The aim of our study was to determine whether the occurrence of various alleles of the serotonin transporter gene is related to the variability of two temperamental traits postulated in the(More)
INTRODUCTION This article studies the relationship between emotional reactivity and coping style on the one hand and intensity of symptoms of trauma in adult patients with cancer on the other hand. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted on 150 patients, 55 women and 95 men, hospitalized for diagnosed cancer. Temperament was assessed with the Formal(More)
The aim of our study was to determine whether the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism is related to temperamental traits measured using the Formal Characteristics of Behavior - Temperament Inventory (FCB-TI) and personality traits assessed by the NEO Five-Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) questionnaire. The sample comprised 200 unrelated females, aged 18-29 years. DNA of the(More)
OBJECTIVES This is a study of the association between DRD4 exon III VNTR and DAT1 3'-untranslated region polymorphisms on the one hand and temperament assessed with the Formal Characteristics of Behaviour-Temperament Inventory on the other hand. METHODS The study was run on 418 participants (314 women and 104 men) aged 18 to 55 years sampled from healthy(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to identify relations between several polymorphisms in dopamine genes (DRD2, DRD3, DRD4, SNAP-25, ANKKland DATI) and temperamental traits distinguished in the EAS theory. In this study the family-based method was used. METHOD The study was run on 149 biological families with one or two children aged 3-12. Temperamental(More)
Behavioral genetic research has been conducted at the University of Warsaw for the past 20 years. The work done at the University focuses primarily on the origins of individual differences in temperament and other personality traits. In particular, research is directed toward the traits postulated in the Regulative Theory of Temperament. We also focused on(More)
AIM The main goal of our study was to investigate the relationship between age, duration of pain, pain intensity, temperament traits as postulated by the Regulative Theory of Temperament (RTT), social support dimensions and the level of trauma symptoms, as appear in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a sample of 300 patients suffering from chronic(More)
