- Increased power to detect gene-environment interaction using siblings controlsNadine Andrieu
National Institute of Health and Medical Research EMI00 06, Evry, France
Ann Epidemiol 15:705-11. 2005..To evaluate a more realistic design, we studied the relative efficiency of a 1:0.5 case-sibling-control design compared with a classical 1:1 case-unrelated-control design and examined the effect of the analysis strategy...

J Clin Oncol 24:3361-6. 2006..Because of the role of the BRCA proteins in DNA repair, we hypothesized that BRCA carriers might be more sensitive to ionizing radiation than women in the general population...
