    摘要: Assessing familial aggregation of a disease or its underlying quantitative traits is often undertaken as the first step in the investigation of possible genetic causes. When some major confounding variables are known and difficult to be quantified, the matched case–control family design provides an opportunity to eliminate biased results. In such a design, cases and matched controls are ascertained first, with subsequent recruitment of other members in their families. For the study of complex diseases, many continuously distributed quantitative traits or biomedical evaluations are of primary clinical and health significance, and distributions of these continuous outcomes are frequently skewed or non-normal. A non-normal distributed outcome may lead some standard statistical methods to suffer from loss of substantial power. To deal with the problem, in this study, we thus propose a rank-based test for detecting familial aggregation of a quantitative trait with the use of a within-cluster resampling process. According to our simulation studies, the proposed test expresses qualified and robust power performance. Specifically, the proposed test is slightly less powerful than the generalized estimating equations approach if the trait is normally distributed, and it is apparently more powerful if the trait distribution is essentially skewed or heavy-tailed. A user-friendly R-script and an executable file to perform the proposed test are available online to allow its implementation on ordinary research.
