  1. Data collection strategies in genetic epidemiology : the epilepsy family study of Columbia University.

    Article - En anglais

    A large-scale study of genetic influences on seizure disorders is described here as a primer of tested methods for collection of family history data. 1957 adult probands with epilepsy were ascertained from voluntary organizations.

    Personal and family history data were obtained from probands in semistructured telephone interviews.

    To increase sensitivity, an independent family history was obtained from a second family informant in a similar interview.

    To increase specificity and diagnostic detail, family members reported to be affected were interviewed, and medical records of probands and affected relatives were collected.
