AIM In our study, we evaluated if CART gene A1475G and DeltaA1457 polymorphisms could be associated with obesity. PATIENTS AND METHODS We recruited 133 Italian trios from among 103 (50 males and 53 females) overweight children (mean age 10.5 years, range 6-14 years; mean BMI 26.1 +/- 3.2 kg/m(2)), and 30 (16 males and 14 females) obese children (mean age 9.0 years, range 6-11 years; mean BMI 32.3 +/- 2.0 kg/m(2)). We also selected 187 non-obese unrelated controls. RESULTS The allele… CONTINUE READING
