  Aetiology - ABC of Heart Failure British Medical Journal - Find Articles
Recent studies that have allocated aetiology on the basis of non-invasive investigations--such as the Hillingdon heart failure study--have identified coronary artery disease as the primary aetiology in 36% of cases of heart failure.
In the Hillingdon study, however, researchers were not able to identify the primary aetiology in 34% of cases; this methodological failing has been addressed in the current Bromley heart failure study, which uses coronary angiography as well as historical and non-invasive findings.
Recent community based studies that have assessed aetiology using clinical criteria and relevant non-invasive investigations have reported hypertension to be the cause of heart failure in 10-20%.

With the finding of accumulated crystalloid material in bile duct epithelium (paper 2) and episarsasapogenin-0-D-glucuronide and epismilagenin crystals in the bile from lambs with alveld (paper 10), the disease can be grouped with other hepatogenous photosensitivity diseases of sheep that are characterised by the presence of birefringent crystals in and about the bile ducts.

 Etiology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Etiology (alternately aetiology, aitiology) is the study of causation.
It is derived from the Greek meaning 'concerned with causes', and so can refer to myths as well as to medical and philosophical theories.
In Virgil's Aeneid (published circa 17 BC), many places are given mythical histories, but more importantly the then ruling Julian Family are related back to the mythical hero Aeneas through his son Ascanius, whose second name was Iulus (since I and J were interchangeable Iulus become Julus and thence the Julians).

 Aetiology definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms
The word "aetiology" is mainly used in medicine, where it is the science that deals with the causes or origin of disease, the factors which produce or predispose toward a certain disease or disorder.
Today in medicine one hears (or reads) that "the aetiology is unknown." Translation -- we don't know the cause.
Aetiology is the preferred spelling in some countries, including the UK, whereas "etiology" without an "a" has taken over in the US.

 AETIOLOGY AND PATHOGENESIS OF PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
The aetiology and pathogenesis of Pulmonary Emphysema remains unknown, although a great deal of research has been and is carried out.
The reason for that is the lack of a scientific theory which can support its interpretation, since the traditional theory of pulmonary physiology, which considers the Lung a passive organ, does not favour the understanding of a pulmonary physiopathology.
Therefore, the analysis and interpretation of its Aetiology and pathogenesis is my present contribution to the Welfare of Mankind and to Science.
