(Public Library of Science, 2009-12-14)
    BACKGROUND. The strong familiality of living to extreme ages suggests that human longevity is genetically regulated. The majority of genes found thus far to be associated with longevity primarily function in lipoprotein ...
  • McDonnell, Sharon M; Bolton, Paul; Sunderland, Nadine; Bellows, Ben; White, Mark; Noji, Eric (BioMed Central, 2004-10-7)
    BACKGROUND: Applied epidemiologists are increasingly working in areas of insecurity and active conflict to define the health risks, suggest feasible means to reduce these risks and, monitor the capacity and reconstruction ...
  • Feldman, R G; White, R F (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 1996-04)
    This review describes strategies used by a clinical neurologist in the investigation of neurotoxic disease. It emphasizes the need for a high level of suspicion that environmental substances are capable of producing ...
