    Hum Mol Genet 21:1504-12. 2012
    ..However, by 7 years, no associations were observed with the maternal genotype. This suggested that the children's FA levels were related only to their own metabolism with no apparent lasting influences of the in utero environment...
  2. ncbi request reprint Socio-demographic characteristics of UK families using pesticides and weed-killers
    Colin D Steer
    Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    J Expo Sci Environ Epidemiol 16:251-63. 2006
    ..They have also helped in identifying the important confounders for adjusting future analyses on the potential health consequences of pesticides and weed-killers...
  3. pmc Traits contributing to the autistic spectrum
    Colin D Steer
    Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 5:e12633. 2010
    ..It is increasingly recognised that traits associated with autism reflect a spectrum with no clear boundary between typical and atypical behaviour. Dimensional traits are needed to investigate the broader autism phenotype...
  4. doi request reprint The variation in stool patterns from 1 to 42 months: a population-based observational study
    C D Steer
    Department of Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    Arch Dis Child 94:231-3. 2009
    ..To document the normal stool patterns of young children...
  5. pmc Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism is associated with spinal BMD in 9-year-old children
    Colin D Steer
    Department of Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    J Bone Miner Res 24:117-24. 2009
    ..To the extent that these findings reflect known influences of C677T MTHFR genotype on plasma homocysteine levels, our results suggest that the latter is an important regulator of spinal BMD in childhood...
  6. pmc FADS2 polymorphisms modify the effect of breastfeeding on child IQ
    Colin D Steer
    Centre for Child and Adolescent Health, Department of Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    PLoS ONE 5:e11570. 2010
    ..A study by Caspi et al has suggested that rs174575 within the FADS2 gene moderates this effect so that children homozygous in the minor allele (GG genotype) have similar IQs irrespective of feeding method...
  7. pmc Dependence of deodorant usage on ABCC11 genotype: scope for personalized genetics in personal hygiene
    Santiago Rodriguez
    MRC Centre for Causal Analyses in Translational Epidemiology CAiTE, and Bristol Genetic Epidemiology Laboratories BGEL, School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    J Invest Dermatol 133:1760-7. 2013
    ..It also indicates potential cost saving to the nonodorous and scope for personalized genetics usage in personal hygiene choices, with consequent reduction of inappropriate chemical exposures for some...

    Colin D Steer
    Centre for Child and Adolescent Health and Academic Rheumatology, Southmead Hospital, University of Bristol, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 94:1861S-1864S. 2011
    ..Together, these results confirm that there is a relation between bone development in childhood and several proxy measures for nutritional status in utero...

    Imogen S Rogers
    Department of Social Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 84:739-47. 2006
    ..Birth weight has been positively associated with risk of overweight in later life. However, little information exists on how weight and length at birth are associated with subsequent lean and total body fat...

    Jon H Tobias
    University of Bristol, UK
    J Bone Miner Res 22:101-9. 2007
    ..Physical activity was positively related to both BMD and bone size in fully adjusted models. However, further exploration revealed that this effect on bone size was modified by fat mass...
