    Investigators at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have been studying the genetic determinants of cardiometabolic health in this population since To date, over 7, Amish adults have participated in one or more of our studies. The genetic problems come down to something called the "founder effect" because the nearly , Amish in America can trace their roots back to a few hundred German-Swiss settlers who brought.

    Protocol Description. Through this study, researchers will be collecting and analyzing data about people from the Plain Communities (Old Order Amish and Mennonite), which have inherited medical conditions that are unique to their population groups due to geographic and social isolation. While the Amish are at an increased risk for some genetic disorders, researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC-James) have found their tendency for clean living can lead to better health.

    Shortly after my arrival at Johns Hopkins in September , as the Director of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Victor McKusick presented me with a copy of his book Medical Genetic Studies of the Amish: Selected Papers [1].Cited by: 1. Since at least , with the publication of the essay “Genetic Studies of the Amish,” by Victor McKusick, John Hostetler, and Janice Egeland, scholars have identified the unique contribution that Amish communities play in advancing medical knowledge.

There is a high degree of inbreeding, resulting in a high frequency of recessive disorders, many of which are seen rarely or are unknown outside of this population. Complex and colorful Amish quilts are the highlight of the items that will be sold.
