Role of in-group collectivism in the longevity of family firms

The cultural dimension of in-group collectivism is connected with the concept of social capital, which has been shown in prior research to be a key factor in resource access and longevity of firms. In this paper, we formulate a set of propositions on how the cultural dimension of in-group collectivism moderates the relationship between the characteristics of family businesses and...

Association of Hip Bone Mineral Density and Body Composition in a Rural Indian Population: The Andhra Pradesh Children and Parents Study (APCAPS)

Background Fat mass is variably associated with bone mass, possibly due to differential mechanical and biological effects of fat mass. We examined the association of fat mass with bone mass in a lean population. Objective To investigate association between hip bone mineral density and fat and lean mass in a cross-sectional study from southern India. Design The Andhra Pradesh...

Adolescent undernutrition and early adulthood bone mass in an urbanizing rural community in India

Summary The long-term effects on bone health of nutritional status in adolescence are unclear. The impact of adolescent and current body mass on bone mass in young adulthood in rural India was assessed. Current lean mass was a more important determinant of bone mass than thinness during adolescence in this population. Purpose/introduction Adolescence is a crucial period for...

Association of Common Genetic Variants with Lipid Traits in the Indian Population

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been instrumental in identifying novel genetic variants associated with altered plasma lipid levels. However, these quantitative trait loci have not been tested in the Indian population, where there is a poorly understood and growing burden of cardiometabolic disorders. We present the association of six single nucleotide polymorphisms...

Association Study of 25 Type 2 Diabetes Related Loci with Measures of Obesity in Indian Sib Pairs

Obesity is an established risk factor for type 2 diabetes (T2D) and they are metabolically related through the mechanism of insulin resistance. In order to explore how common genetic variants associated with T2D correlate with body mass index (BMI), we examined the influence of 25 T2D associated loci on obesity risk. We used 5056 individuals (2528 sib-pairs) recruited in Indian...
