OBJECTIVE:Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified some common variants associated with obesity risk in European descents. However, their influences on obesity-related indices for the Chinese children at puberty are not widely clear yet. To address this question, we conducted a study that aims to examine effects of eight previously reported GWAS single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on four obesity-related indices in a sample of Chinese children aged 10–12 years.METHODS… CONTINUE READING
