  1. Genetic epidemiology utilizing the adoption method : studies of obesity and of premature death in adults (held as the Ipsen lecture 18th May, 1990).

    Article - En anglais

    The study of subjects separated very early in life from their biologic parents and adopted by unrelated parents provide a strong tool for estimation of genetic and familial environmental influences.

    The degree to which the trait or disease frequency of the adoptees is similar to that seen among the biologic relatives is an indication of the strenght of the genetic influence.

    Similarity to the adoptive relatives suggests influences of the family environment shared between them.
