  1. "Molecular epidemiology" : new pathway or new travelling companion ?

    Article - En anglais

    The term « molecular epidemiology » is coming into general usage, but its implications are ambiguous.

    A simple definition is that it entails the inclusion in epidemiologic research of biologic measurements made at the molecular level-and is thus an extension of the increasing use of biologically based measures in epidemiologic research. « Molecular epidemiologic » measurements typically detect damaged or naturally variant molecular structures, or use immunologically based techniques to detect particular gene-product molecules. (In contrast, the measurement of biochemical concentration, such as of plasma estrogens, does not require information about molecular structure).
