Underlying Mechanisms of Gene-Environment Interactions in Externalizing Behavior: A Systematic Review and Search for Theoretical Mechanisms.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Clin Child Fam Psychol Rev, Dec 2015
Over the last decade, several candidate genes (i.e., MAOA, DRD4, DRD2, DAT1, 5-HTTLPR, and COMT) have been extensively studied as potential moderators of the detrimental effects of postnatal family adversity on child externalizing behaviors, such as aggression and conduct disorder.
Safinamide for symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Berlin, Germany. In Drugs Today (barc), Nov 2015
Safinamide is a novel instrument for the drug therapy of Parkinson's disease with better safety and tolerability particularly concerning diarrhea than inhibitors of catechol-O-methyltransferase, like entacapone, according to an indirect comparison within a meta-analysis with entacapone.
Analysis of CYP1A1 and COMT polymorphisms in women with cervical cancer.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
The aim of this case-control study was to obtain a comprehensive panel of genetic polymorphisms present only in genes (cytochrome P-450 1A1 - CYP1A1 and catechol-O-methyl transferase - COMT) within the metabolic pathway of sex steroids and determine their possible associations with the presence or absence of cervical cancer.
