Example text

One issue is how to manage the data for large sample sizes in order to achieve high statistical power. This is being addressed through public–private collaboration via a “Big Data” initiative to foster high performance computing applications (Mervis, 2012). A similar approach may be taken with epigenetic profiling data. The larger issue with epigenetic profiling will be obtaining appropriate brain samples. Identification of surrogate cell types for determining function in human brain will remain a challenge.

Thirteen of the TBI patients were diagnosed with moderate TBI on the basis of GCS score, length of unconsciousness, and length of post-traumatic amnesia. Processing speed and cognitive function was measured as independent variables. Nine SNPs (Fig. 3), including the Val66Met variant, were selected and were distributed across the entire human BDNF gene. Analyses were performed using single SNP markers and haplotypes represented by three and six SNP markers. Linkage disequilibrium (LD) across the BDNF gene is high in the Caucasian population.

Genetic and environmental (epigenetic and other nongenetic) factors will interact to influence outcome following TBI. Because clinical outcome is influenced by the heterogeneity of brain trauma, we related genetic influences on recovery to four general domains where genes may act to influence the brain’s response to injury and may be predictive or diagnostic of: (1) injury severity, (2) acute response to CNS injury, (3) long-term response to injury, and (4) potential response to therapy. CANDIDATE GENE APPROACHES APOE Functional variation of apolipoprotein E (apo E) can influence overall patient outcome, as well as cognitive and behavioral functions following TBI.
