    Genealogy: The Tree Where History Meets Genetics
    (MDPI, 2021-11-12) Gomes, Cláudia; Palomo Díez, Sara; López Parra, Ana María; Arroyo Pardo, Eduardo
    Although biological relationships are a universal reality for all human beings, the concepts of “family” and “family bond” depend on both the geographic region and the historical moment to which they refer. However, the concept of “family” can be determinant in a large variety of societies, since it can influence the lines of succession, inheritances and social relationships, as well as where and with whom an individual is buried. The relation between a deceased person and other members of a community, other individuals of the same necropolis, or even with those who are buried in the same tomb can be analysed from the genetic point of view, considering different perspectives: archaeological, historical, and forensic. In the present work, the concepts of “family” and “kinship” are discussed, explaining the relevance of genetic analysis, such as nuclear and lineage markers, and their contribution to genealogical research, for example in the heritage of surnames and Y-chromosome, as well as those cases where some discrepancies with historical record are detected, such as cases of adoption. Finally, we explain how genetic genealogical analyses can help to solve some cold cases, through the analysis of biologically related relatives.

    El objeto del proyecto es realizar una reflexión conjunta de profesores en diferentes departamentos, con el fin de identificar aquellos ítems, planteados por Docentia-UCM, que han arrojado resultados mejorables. Posteriormente serán contrastados con un panel de docentes calificados como “excelentes” (de los que algunos ya forman parte del presente proyecto), en base al programa, con excelencia en una jornada de reflexión, abierta a todos los profesores de cada departamento implicado, y a los delegados de las asignaturas impartidas por dicho departamento. Se busca la mejora de las evaluaciones de los profesores.

    Influence of Diet, Menstruation and Genetic Factors on Iron Status: A Cross-Sectional Study in Spanish Women of Childbearing Age
    (MDPI, 2014-03-06) Blanco-Rojo, Ruth; Toxqui, Laura; López Parra, Ana María; Baeza Richer, Carlos Ignacio; Pérez-Granados, Ana; Arroyo Pardo, Eduardo; Vaquero, M.
    The aim of this study was to investigate the combined influence of diet, menstruation and genetic factors on iron status in Spanish menstruating women (n = 142). Dietary intake was assessed by a 72-h detailed dietary report and menstrual blood loss by a questionnaire, to determine a Menstrual Blood Loss Coefficient (MBLC). Five selected SNPs were genotyped: rs3811647, rs1799852 (Tf gene); rs1375515 (CACNA2D3 gene); and rs1800562 and rs1799945 (HFE gene, mutations C282Y and H63D, respectively). Iron biomarkers were determined and cluster analysis was performed. Differences among clusters in dietary intake, menstrual blood loss parameters and genotype frequencies distribution were studied. A categorical regression was performed to identify factors associated with cluster belonging. Three clusters were identified: women with poor iron status close to developing iron deficiency anemia (Cluster 1, n = 26); women with mild iron deficiency (Cluster 2, n = 59) and women with normal iron status (Cluster 3, n = 57). Three independent factors, red meat consumption, MBLC and mutation C282Y, were included in the model that better explained cluster belonging (R2 = 0.142, p < 0.001). In conclusion, the combination of high red meat consumption, low menstrual blood loss and the HFE C282Y mutation may protect from iron deficiency in women of childbearing age. These findings could be useful to implement adequate strategies to prevent iron deficiency anemia.

    Acenocoumarol Pharmacogenetic Dosing Algorithm versus Usual Care in Patients with Venous Thromboembolism: A Randomised Clinical Trial
    (MDPI, 2021-06-30) Tong, Hoi Yan; Borobia, Alberto; Quintana Díaz, Manuel; Fabra, Sara; González Viñolis, Manuel; Fernández Capitán, Carmen; Rodriguez Dávila, María; Lorenzo, Alicia; López Parra, Ana María; Ruiz Giménez, Nuria; Abad Santos, Francisco; Suarez, Carmen; Madridano, Olga; Gómez Cerezo, Jorge; Llamas, Pilar; Baeza Richer, Carlos Ignacio; Arroyo Pardo, Eduardo; Carcas, Antonio J.
    Patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) require immediate treatment with anticoagulants such as acenocoumarol. This multicentre randomised clinical trial evaluated the effectiveness of a dosing pharmacogenetic algorithm versus a standard-of-care dose adjustment at the beginning of acenocoumarol treatment. We included 144 patients with VTE. On the day of recruitment, a blood sample was obtained for genotyping (CYP2C9*2, CYP2C9*3, VKORC1, CYP4F2, APOE). Dose adjustment was performed on day 3 or 4 after the start of treatment according to the assigned group and the follow-up was at 12 weeks. The principal variable was the percentage of patients with an international normalised ratio (INR) within the therapeutic range on day 7. Thirty-four (47.2%) patients had an INR within the therapeutic range at day 7 after the start of treatment in the genotype-guided group compared with 14 (21.9%) in the control group (p = 0.0023). There were no significant differences in the time to achieve a stable INR, the number of INRs within the range in the first 6 weeks and at the end of study. Our results suggest the use of a pharmacogenetic algorithm for patients with VTE could be useful in achieving target INR control in the first days of treatment.

    A study of the identification and authenticity of three trophy heads
    (Romanian Society of Legal Medicine, 2021-03) Arráez Aybar, Luis Alfonso; Arroyo Pardo, Eduardo; Minaya Bernedo, Angel; Fuentes Redondo, Talía; Carvalho De Moraes, Luís Otávio; Mérida Velasco, José Ramón
    Abstract: Trophy heads are human heads that have been removed from the rest of the body at the time of death or later. They present varied elaborations, to a greater or lesser degree: Basically the skull can be preserved (skull trophy) or not (shrunken head). We present here a morphological study that allows us to study the authenticity and possible cultural background of three trophy-heads belonging to the Complutense University’s patrimony (Madrid, Spain) and rediscovered by serendipity. The aim/goal of this paper is twofold. First, study and identify of these trophy heads. Second, to assess their authenticity. We conclude that two out of the three heads are shrunken heads, suggesting that their objective/goal was different and that can be clearly distinguished from the false or commercial shrunken heads, that emerged mainly in the nineteenth century. Also, their morphological and ornamental characteristics indicate that one is authentic or ceremonial tsantsa and the other is commercial. The other head was a skull trophy with the ornamental decorative features compatible to a trophy head by the Mundurucu tribe. Keywords: Anthropology, authenticity evaluation, ceremonial tsantsa, commercial shrunken head, ethnobotany.

    “Inhibiting inhibitors”: Preliminary results of a new “DNA extractionamplification” disinhibition technique in critical human samples
    (Elsevier, 2017) Gomes, Cláudia; Alonso Conde, Alejandro; Marquina Díaz, Domingo; Guardià, Marc; López Matayoshi, César Yoshi; Palomo Díez, Sara; Perea Pérez, Bernardo; Gibaja, Juan F.; Arroyo Pardo, Eduardo
    The present study focused on the genetic analysis of a presumptive Bronze Age family burial, with at least six skeletons (Plana Castell, Barcelona, Spain). In order to investigate the individuals’ biological affiliation, a molecular study was undertaken, but it was impossible to obtain a positive DNA amplification. The excavation data indicated that the skeletons were buried in an old location used as a dumping ground, being very likely the presence of biological and/or chemical contaminants. To overcome this difficulty, we undertook several modifications both in the extraction as in the amplification protocol, like MgCl2concentration, or the inclusion of Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA). Despite their antiquity, the preliminary results indicate that all samples were effectively inhibited, and for the first time we were able to obtain mtDNA results, specifically, for the Hypervariable mitochondrial region 1. It also allowed us to infer that our protocol performance increased considerable, mainly the amplification modifications. In general, the best results were obtained with MgCl2 0,6 μL (20 mM) and BSA 2 mg/mL per sample. Our result is quite important in a forensic analysis, mainly in cases where corpse/s is/are buried directly in the soil.
