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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
The aim of this study was to explore the level of posttraumatic growth (PTG) and its relationship to the level of stress coping strategies, spirituality and social support among rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients (n = 250). The level of PTG was measured by the Polish adaptation of the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory. Stress coping strategies were evaluated(More)
The main goal of the current study was to investigate sex differences in the relationship between the level of trauma symptoms appearing in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and intensity of pain in a sample of 300 Polish patients suffering from chronic pain, specifically rheumatoid arthritis and lower back pain. We also focused on participants' body(More)
This correlational study investigated the relationships between temperament, beliefs about pain control, and pain intensity ratings in a group of 103 women diagnosed with endometriosis. Temperament traits were assessed using the Formal Characteristics of Behaviour-Temperament Inventory. Beliefs about pain control were measured using the Polish version of(More)
