- Analysis of transmission of novel polymorphisms in the somatostatin receptor 5 (SSTR5) gene in patients with autismMarlene B Lauritsen
Department of Psychiatric Demography, Institute for Basic Psychiatric Research, Psychiatric Hospital in Aarhus, Risskov, Denmark
Am J Med Genet B Neuropsychiatr Genet 121:100-4. 2003..No significant preferential transmission of the alleles and haplotypes of the twelve SNPs was found. Our results do not suggest the SSTR5 gene as a susceptibility gene for autism...
- The incidence and prevalence of pervasive developmental disorders: a Danish population-based studyM B Lauritsen
Department of Psychiatric Demography, Psychiatric Hospital in Aarhus, Denmark
Psychol Med 34:1339-46. 2004..Based on prevalence studies and the few incidence studies of pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) the prevalence and incidence of these disorders have been claimed to be increasing...
- Effects of familial risk factors and place of birth on the risk of autism: a nationwide register-based studyMarlene Briciet Lauritsen
Centre for Basic Psychiatric Research, Psychiatric Hospital in Aarhus, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark
J Child Psychol Psychiatry 46:963-71. 2005..The etiology of autism is unknown. A strong genetic component has been detected but non-genetic factors may also be involved in the etiology...
- A population-based association study of glutamate decarboxylase 1 as a candidate gene for autismHenriette Nørmølle Buttenschøn
Centre for Psychiatric Research, Aarhus University Hospital, Risskov, Denmark
J Neural Transm 116:381-8. 2009..However, a rare nine-marker haplotype was associated with childhood autism. We cannot exclude neither GAD1 as a susceptibility gene nor the possibility of another susceptibility gene for autism to be located on chromosome 2q31...
- A genome-wide search for alleles and haplotypes associated with autism and related pervasive developmental disorders on the Faroe IslandsM B Lauritsen
Centre for Basic Psychiatric Research, Psychiatric Hospital in Aarhus, Aarhus University Hospital, Shovagervej 2, DK 8240 Risskov, Denmark
Mol Psychiatry 11:37-46. 2006..Our data suggest that markers in these regions are in linkage disequilibrium with genes involved in the etiology of autism, and we hypothesize susceptibility genes for autism and related PDDs to be localized within these regions...
- A 3.2 Mb deletion on 18q12 in a patient with childhood autism and high-grade myopiaMette Gilling
Department of Medical Genetics, Wilhelm Johannsen Centre for Functional Genome Research, Institute of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen N, Denmark
Eur J Hum Genet 16:312-9. 2008..Identification of multiple genetic changes in this patient with childhood autism agrees with the most frequently suggested genetic model of ASDs as complex, polygenic disorders...
