University of Melbourne finds fainting may be genetic

A new University of Melbourne-led study has revealed further insight into fainting, showing the phenomenon may be genetic and, in some families, only one gene may be responsible, the university is reporting. However, a predisposition to certain triggers, such as emotional distress or the sight of blood, may not be inherited a new study has found.

Fainting, a brief loss of loss of consciousness when your body reacts to certain triggers, affects at least one out of four people, the University of Melbourne noted. The study, published in the prestigious journal Neurology last week and led by Professor Samuel Berkovic from the University of Melbourne’s Department of Medicine, based at Austin Health, shows fainting may run in families while triggers may not, the university said.

“Our study strengthens the evidence that fainting may be commonly genetic,” Berkovic told Melbourne. “Our hope is to uncover the mystery of this phenomenon so that we can recognize the risk or reduce the occurrence in people as fainting may be a safety issue.”

Melbourne said researchers interviewed 44 families with a history of fainting and reviewed their medical records. Of those, six families had a large number of affected people, suggesting that a single gene was running through the family. The first family consisted of 30 affected people over three generations with an average fainting onset of eight to nine years, the University of Melbourne’s Department of Medicine found.

The other families were made up of four to 14 affected family members, Melbourne said. Affected family members reported typical triggers, such as the sight of blood, injury, medical procedures, prolonged standing, pain and frightening thoughts. However, the triggers varied greatly within the families, Melbourne reports.

Genotyping of the largest family showed significant links to a specific region on chromosome 15, known as 15q26. Linkage to this region was excluded in two medium-sized families but not in the two smaller families, the university stated.

The study was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia, the German Research Foundation, the University of Melbourne and the Australian Research Council.

Renowned for global leadership in health research, policy and practice, the University of Melbourne educates more health professionals than any other university in Australia.

OzTREKK Funny Friday

This guy goes into a doctor’s office. The doctor says, “Oh, Mr. Jones! We have the results of your test. Do you want the bad news first or the very bad news?”

The guy shrugs and says, “Well I guess I’ll have the bad news first.”

“Well the bad news is, you have twenty-four hours to live,” the doctor replies.

The man is distraught, “Twenty-four hours to live? That’s horrible! What could be worse than that? What’s the VERY bad news?”

The doctor folds his hands and sighs. “The very bad news is…I’ve been trying to contact you since yesterday.”
