PURPOSE: Using effect estimates from genome-wide association studies (GWAS), we identified a genetic risk score (GRS) that has the strongest association with type 2 diabetes (T2D) status in a population-based cohort and investigated its potential for prospective T2D risk assessment. METHODS: By varying the number of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and their respective weights, alternative versions of GRS can be computed. They were tested in 1,181 T2D cases and 9,092 controls of the Estonian Biobank cohort...

Designs that involve families (the traditional strength of genetic epidemiology) and population-based sampling (the traditional strength of environmental epidemiology) allow investigation of both genes and environment, separately or together, and allow valid inference to the population. These case-control-family designs (including those involving twin pairs), can be regarded as retrospective cohort studies of relatives, and can be used for: determining familial risks and genetic models; estimating risk (penetrance) for measured genotypes; genetic association studies; stratifying risks by family history and known mutation status; and studying modifiers of risk in genetically susceptible individuals...

This article is the first in a series of seven that will provide an overview of central concepts and topical issues in modern genetic epidemiology. In this article, we provide an overall framework for investigating the role of familial factors, especially genetic determinants, in the causation of complex diseases such as diabetes. The discrete steps of the framework to be outlined integrate the biological science underlying modern genetics and the population science underpinning mainstream epidemiology. In keeping with the broad readership of The Lancet and the diverse background of today's genetic epidemiologists, we provide introductory sections to equip readers with basic concepts and vocabulary...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
