Disease relevance of Tonga


High impact information on Tonga

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of diabetes, impaired glucose metabolism, and related risk factors in Tonga [2].
  • The distribution of ABO and Rh(D) and selected high- and low-frequency antigens in the people in the Kingdom of Tonga [3].
  • A random sample of 1022 individuals from Tonga were genotyped for the Gln(27)Glu polymorphism in the beta 2 adrenoceptor gene [4].
  • Among patients with non-multiresistant MRSA, 29% (7/24) were born in New Zealand, Samoa or Tonga, a higher proportion than among those with multiresistant MRSA or methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (P= 0.03) [5].
  • In this paper we describe the results of 6 months of intensive interviews in Tonga regarding the second type of treatment called vai haka [6].
