This study examines the best way to teach genetics to family medicine residents. First year family medicine residents at the University of Toronto will be taught basic clinical genetics as well as a specific disease in genetics via 3 different educational methods. All participants will undergo an oral examination and written knowledge test 3 months after this education. Results between groups will be compared, and the best way to teach genetics to residents ... Read More

This study will describe the experience of patients with visible physical abnormalities in the genetics clinic when they are involved in teaching others about their condition. Information from this study may be used to enhance educational experiences in genetics clinics. Patients 18 years of age and older with a visible physical anomaly who have been seen by a genetics professional in the past 5 years may be eligible for this study. In a ... Read More

A clinically applicably strategy for molecular screening for Lynch Syndrome is being implemented in Denmark. Based on sequential analysis with immunohistochemistry and methylation analysis, patients with possible hereditary colorectal cancer are identified. These patients are offered genetic risk assessment and counselling. The study hypothesis is that molecular screening will identify more patients with Lynch Syndrome than the family history ...

This study, conducted by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the National Human Genome Research Institute, will characterize family physicians' attitudes and practices related to the genetics of complex disorders. As the front line of care for most Americans, family medicine will have a central role in seeing that new findings in genetics lead to disease prevention and health improvements. The information gained from this study could be ... Read More

The goal of this study is to determine the association between genotypes and diet. The weight and weight loss data are already available from the previously completed study called: A to Z Study - Benefits and Risks of Alternative Weight Loss Strategies - A Clinical Trial, which was performed from 2003-2005 at Stanford University. In the present study, Interleukin Genetics will obtain DNA samples from the previously enrolled study subjects to investigate ... Read More

Kidney disease in diabetes (diabetic nephropathy) tends to run in families. It is likely, therefore, that there are genes that predict or are associated with either getting or not getting diabetic nephropathy. The GoKinD Study will provide clinical information and DNA for investigators to look for these genes. Evaluation will be performed and DNA obtained from approximately 1100 diabetic persons with kidney disease and 1000 diabetic persons without kidney ... Read More

This study will explore how cultural differences influence genetics research in developing countries. Human genetics research is becoming more common in developing countries. However, when research is conducted with people living in developing countries, there is a chance that culture differences can lead to misunderstandings between investigators and participants, resulting in ineffective research. This study will explore challenges facing investigators ... Read More

This study will investigate the cause and natural history (medical problems that appear over time) of certain genetic disorders. It will also try to locate the abnormal genes responsible for these conditions and eventually develop tests to predict who is likely to be affected and to what degree. Patients with known or suspected genetic disorders in certain categories, such as those involving chromosomal or metabolic abnormalities, immune system or blood ... Read More

A clinically applicably strategy for molecular screening for Lynch Syndrome has been implemented in the Region of Southern Denmark. Based on sequential analysis with immunohistochemistry and methylation analysis, patients with possible hereditary colorectal cancer are identified. These patients are offered genetic risk assessment and counselling. The study hypothesis is that molecular screening will identify more patients with Lynch Syndrome than the ... Read More

There is an urgent need for a knowledge translation strategy to facilitate the integration of genetics into family medicine, to improve the low knowledge base of most Canadian family physicians, ensure that the needs are met of those in the population who could benefit from genetic assessment, and facilitate evidence-based decision-making in the face of increasing patient demand. We have developed a multi-faceted intervention incorporating three distinct ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to evaluate individuals with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to learn more about the genetics of the disease. This study is part of other ongoing studies of individuals with ADHD. The study participants have already undergone neurobiological measurements, particularly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, through other research studies. As a follow-up to these studies, participants will next undergo ... Read More

This study is a blinded, prospective, single-center, clinical study conducted in Japanese female subjects between the ages of 20-75 years. This design uses skin biopsy samples from environmentally exposed areas and unexposed (control) areas within the same subjects to assess the gene expression profile from three different age groups.

In many of the patients with cardiomyopathy, the etiology is not clear . In about 30% there is a family history of cardiomyopathy .Our aim is to study the genetics basis for these patients with cardiomyopathy with no clear etiology and who have a first degree family relative with cardiomyopathy as well.

The body's immune response to injury or infection is very complex.Endotoxin is a man-made substance, which causes the body to "mimic" sickness (fever,chills, and achiness)for a few hours. This study is designed to determine whether certain proteins, genetics, or heart rate variability change affects the body's response to endotoxin. Read More
