..53 (0.89, 2.61) and 1.42 (0.79, 2.53), respectively. Our results suggest that favourable IFNL3 genotypes are more common among Aboriginals than Caucasians, and may partly explain the higher HCV clearance rates seen among Aboriginals. ..

. Absence of association of thrombophilia polymorphisms with intrauterine growth restriction. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:19-25 pubmed
..Our findings do not indicate that there are associations between maternal or newborn polymorphisms associated with thrombophilia and an increased risk of intrauterine growth restriction. ..

..Some results were suggestive of interactions between genes. Overall, there seems to be little or no indication that thrombophilic genes, at least individually, have an effect on intrauterine growth restriction. ..

..03), XRCC3 (P = 0.03), and newborn GSTT1 (P = 0.01). Certain genetic variants involved in the metabolism of xenobiotics increase the risk of SGA, as well as modify the effects of maternal smoking by increasing or decreasing its risk. ..

..The studied polymorphisms did not modify the effect of caffeine. Caffeine consumption is unlikely to be a major risk factor for SGA or low birthweight in pregnant women. ..
