Topics from this paper

Paget's disease of bone--a clinical and genetic study.
There is evidence to suggest that the degree of severity of Paget's disease does not vary, once it has developed in any particular individual, and that the more severe and extensive forms may have a stronger genetic basis. Expand
ABO and rhesus blood group distribution among patients attending veneral diseases clinics.
  • C. Schofield

  • Journal of medical genetics
  • 1966
This investigation was planned to find out if there were any differences in the commoner conditions for which patients attend a venereal diseases clinic, as well as investigating malignancy in Dundee. Expand
A population genetic study in the Ochamchir region, Abkhazia, SSR.
The results suggest that the population of the Ochamchir Region is relatively homogeneous and not distinctly different from its geographical neighbors. Expand
Paget's disease ofbone-aclinical andgenetic study
There is evidence to suggest that this disease isusually not ofmuchclinical significance but that it may be possible toidentify agroup of patients with moreextensive, and moreactive, symptomatic disease, and the moresevere andextensive forms may haveastronger genetic basis. Expand
Family Patterns of Mortality and Life Span
  • B. Cohen

  • The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1964
It is concluded that at present, despite all the recorded information and presumptive evidence, the problem of the genetic aspects of mortality and life span remains to be resolved. Expand
Evolutionary aspects of ABO blood group in humans.
This narrative review aims to elucidate the particularly intriguing issue of the possible role of ABO system in successful aging, with focus on studies evaluating the ABO phenotype in centenarians, the best human model of longevity. Expand
Distribution of ABO blood groups in patients with pernicious anemia, gastric carcinoma and gastric carcinoma associated with pernicious anemia.
The distribution of ABO blood groups is determined for 158 patients with pernicious anemia, 337 patients with gastric carcinoma and 32 patients with each of the two groups in whom gastric cancer is diagnosed. Expand
ABO blood group polymorphism has an impact on prostate, kidney and bladder cancer in association with longevity.
The results of the present study indicated that blood type B was associated with the risk of prostate and bladder cancer, and could be evaluated as a determinant in the negative assocation with longevity. Expand
Possible role of ABO system in age-related diseases and longevity: a narrative review
This review will suggest the possible association of ABO group with age-related diseases and longevity taking into account the biological role of the ABO glycosyltransferases on some inflammatory mediators as adhesion molecules. Expand
Blood group does not appear to affect longevity a pilot study in centenarians from Western Sicily
The present study shows no significant differences between allelic variations of ABO blood groups among a group of centenarians from Western Sicily. Expand


Blood Groups in Man
This stimulating book on hydrogen-ion regulation and biochemistry in anaesthesia is well presented; the printing and paper are good, but the price will not encourage widespread use of the book among the younger members of the authors' specialty. Expand
