TABLE 2: Proposed criteria for prioritizing HuGE* review topics
Content
Public health significance of the disease (in terms of morbidity and mortality)
Availability of effective interventions for genes modulating, or thought to modulate, an exposure
Effect on pathways involved in pathogenesis of multiple diseases of public health significance (e.g., methylation, DNA repair)
Relevance to common disease with evidence of gene-environment or gene-gene interactions
High potential population attributable risk, on the basis of at least two studies

TABLE 3: Formats of HuGE* review†
Format Content
Full review
Information on gene(s), variants of gene(s) (defined, effect on function if known, and variation in genotype frequencies), disease(s), associations with disease(s), interactions, laboratory tests, population testing, other potential public health applications (e.g., setting permissible exposure thresholds), conclusions and recommendations for research,‡ references, Internet sites
Gene-disease association review
Similar to above, except that no information on the variation in genotype frequencies presented
Minireview
This is appropriate when the epidemiologic aspects of specific gene(s) have already been reviewed for HuGENet™,* but the associations between the gene and a different disease are being reviewed. In the section on gene variants, a summary (with reference) of the points covered in the full review(s) relating to this gene should be presented
Prevalence review
Information on gene(s), variants of gene(s) (definition and variation in genotype frequency), laboratory tests, conclusions and recommendations for research, references, Internet sites

* HuGE, Human Genome Epidemiology; HuGE Net, Human Genome Epidemiology Network.
