      This paper studies the impact of the growth and volatility of commodity terms of trade (CToT) on economic growth, total factor productivity, physical capital accumulation and human capital acquisition. We use the standard ...
    • Common and Distinct Patterns of Grey Matter Volume Alteration in Major Depression and Bipolar Disorder: Evidence from Voxel-Based Meta-Analysis

      Carl, Sarah H.; Russell, Steven (BioMed Central, 2015-04-13)
      Background: Group B Sox proteins are a highly conserved group of transcription factors that act extensively to coordinate nervous system development in higher metazoans while showing both co-expression and functional redundancy ...
    • Common breast cancer susceptibility alleles are associated with tumor subtypes in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers: results from the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2. 

      Mulligan, Anna Marie; Couch, Fergus J.; Barrowdale, Daniel; Domchek, Susan M.; Eccles, Diana; Nevanlinna, Heli; Ramus, Susan J. et al. (2011-11-02)
      Abstract Introduction Previous studies have demonstrated that common breast cancer susceptibility alleles are differentially associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carriers. It is currently ...
    • ‘The Common Camp’: temporary settlements as a spatio-political instrument in Israel-Palestine 

      Katz Feigis, I
      From their emergence in the 19th century to their current global proliferation, camps have been created extensively by and for different populations under the modern state order. Whether employed by national and colonial ...
    • Common envelope ejection for a luminous red nova in M101 

      Blagorodnova, N; Kotak, R; Polshaw, J; Kasliwal, MM; Cao, Y; Cody, AM; Doran, GB et al. (IOP Science, 2017-01-10)
      We present the results of optical, near-infrared, and mid-infrared observations of M101 OT2015-1 (PSN J14021678+5426205), a luminous red transient in the Pinwheel galaxy (M101), spanning a total of 16 years. The light curve ...
    • Common ERBB2polymorphisms and risk of breast cancer in a white British population: a case-control study 

      Benusiglio, Patrick R.; Lesueur, Fabienne; Luccarini, Craig; Conroy, Donald M.; Shah, Mitul; Easton, Douglas F.; Day, Nick E. et al. (2005-01-12)
      Abstract Introduction About two-thirds of the excess familial risk associated with breast cancer is still unaccounted for and may be explained by multiple weakly predisposing alleles. A gene thought to be involved in ...
    • Common genetic variants highlight the role of insulin resistance and body fat distribution in type 2 diabetes, independently of obesity 

      Scott, Robert A.; Fall, Tove; Pasko, Dorota; Barker, Adam; Sharp, Stephen J.; Arriola, Larraitz; Balkau, Beverley et al. (American Diabetes Association, 2014-06-19)
      We aimed to validate genetic variants as instruments for insulin resistance and secretion, to characterise their association with intermediate phenotypes, and to investigate their role in T2D risk among normal-weight, ...
    • Common genetic variation associated with increased susceptibility to prostate cancer does not increase risk of radiotherapy toxicity 

      Ahmed, Mahbubl; Dorling, Leila; Kerns, Sarah; Fachal, Laura; Elliott, Rebecca; Partliament, Matt; Rosenstein, Barry S. et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Background Numerous germline single nucleotide polymorphisms increase susceptibility to prostate cancer, some lying near genes involved in cellular radiation response. This study investigated whether prostate cancer ...
    • Common germline polymorphisms associated with breast cancer specific survival 

      Pirie, A.; Guo, Q.; Kraft, P.; Canisius, S.; Eccles, D. M.; Rahman, N.; Nevanlinna, H. et al. (BioMed Central, 2015-04-22)
      Introduction Previous studies have identified common germline variants nominally associated with breast cancer survival. These associations have not been widely replicated in further studies. The purpose of this study was ...
    • Common non-synonymous SNPs associated with breast cancer susceptibility: findings from the Breast Cancer Association Consortium
