Cardiovascular disease in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus: similar rates but different risk factors in the US compared with Europe. (1/5966)

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) has been linked to renal disease. However, little is known concerning international variation in the correlations with hyperglycaemia and standard CVD risk factors. METHODS: A cross-sectional comparison was made of prevalence rates and risk factor associations in two large studies of IDDM subjects: the Pittsburgh Epidemiology of Diabetes Complications Study (EDC) and the EURODIAB IDDM Complications Study from 31 centres in Europe. Subgroups of each were chosen to be comparable by age and duration of diabetes. The EDC population comprises 286 men (mean duration 20.1 years) and 281 women (mean duration 19.9 years); EURODIAB 608 men (mean duration 18.1 years) and 607 women (mean duration 18.9 years). The mean age of both populations was 28 years. Cardiovascular disease was defined by a past medical history of myocardial infarction, angina, and/or the Minnesota ECG codes (1.1-1.3, 4.1-4.3, 5.1-5.3, 7.1). RESULTS: Overall prevalence of CVD was similar in the two populations (i.e. men 8.6% versus 8.0%, women 7.4% versus 8.5%, EURODIAB versus EDC respectively), although EDC women had a higher prevalence of angina (3.9% versus 0.5%, P < 0.001). Multivariate modelling suggests that glycaemic control (HbA1c) is not related to CVD in men. Age and high density lipoprotein cholesterol predict CVD in EURODIAB, while triglycerides and hypertension predict CVD in EDC. For women in both populations, age and hypertension (or renal disease) are independent predictors. HbA1c is also an independent predictor-inversely in EURODIAB women (P < 0.008) and positively in EDC women (P = 0.03). Renal disease was more strongly linked to CVD in EDC than in EURODIAB. CONCLUSIONS: Despite a similar prevalence of CVD, risk factor associations appear to differ in the two study populations. Glycaemic control (HbA1c) does not show a consistent or strong relationship to CVD.  (+info)

Hereditary juvenile haemochromatosis: a genetically heterogeneous life-threatening iron-storage disease. (2/5966)

Juvenile haemochromatosis is a rare inborn error of iron metabolism with clinical manifestations before 30 years of age. Unlike adult haemochromatosis which principally affects men, juvenile haemochromatosis affects the sexes equally; it causes early endocrine failure, dilated cardiomyopathy and joint disease. We report four patients (two of each sex) from three pedigrees affected by juvenile haemochromatosis with a mean onset at 22 years (range 14-30). All had endocrine deficiency with postpubertal gonadal failure secondary to pituitary disease; two suffered near-fatal cardiomyopathy with heart failure. Mean time to diagnosis from the first clinical signs of disease was 9.8 years (range 0.5-20) but general health and parameters of iron storage responded favourably to iron-depletion therapy. A 24-year-old man listed for heart transplantation because of cardiomyopathy [left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction 16%] responded to intravenous iron chelation with desferrioxamine combined with phlebotomy (ejection fraction 31%). A 27-year-old woman with subacute biventricular heart failure refractory to medication required orthotopic cardiac transplantation before the diagnosis was established (LV ejection fraction 25%). Genetic studies showed that these two patients with cardiomyopathy from unrelated families were heterozygous for the HFE 845G-->A (C282Y) mutation and wild-type at the H63D locus: complete sequencing of the intron-exon boundaries and entire coding sequence of the HFE gene failed to identify additional lesions. Two siblings in a pedigree without cardiomyopathy were wild-type at the HFE C282Y locus; although the brother harboured a single copy of the 187C-->G (H63D) allele, segregation analysis showed that in neither sibling was the iron-storage disease linked to MHC Class I markers on chromosome 6p. Juvenile haemochromatosis is thus a genetically heterogenous disorder distinct from the common adult variant.  (+info)

Constitutional genetic variation at the human aromatase gene (Cyp19) and breast cancer risk. (3/5966)

The activity of the aromatase enzyme, which converts androgens into oestrogens and has a major role in regulating oestrogen levels in the breast, is thought to be a contributing factor in the development of breast cancer. We undertook this study to assess the role of constitutional genetic variation in the human aromatase gene (Cyp19) in the development of this disease. Our genotyping of 348 cases with breast cancer and 145 controls (all Caucasian women) for a published tetranucleotide repeat polymorphism at intron 4 of the Cyp19 gene revealed the presence of six common and two rare alleles. Contingency table analysis revealed a significant difference in allelic distribution between cases and controls (chi2 5df = 13.52, P = 0.019). The allele measuring 171 bp was over-represented in cases; of 14 individuals homozygous for this allele, 13 were cases. These individuals had a higher incidence of cancer in family members and an earlier age at diagnosis than other cases. In sequencing Cyp19's coding exons and regulatory regions, we discovered a perfect association between a silent polymorphism (G-->A at Val80) and the high-risk genotype. Our conclusion is that constitutional genetic variation at the Cyp19 locus is associated with the risk of developing breast cancer, with the 171-bp allele serving as the high-risk allele.  (+info)

Cancer risk in close relatives of women with early-onset breast cancer--a population-based incidence study. (4/5966)

Inherited susceptibility to breast cancer is associated with an early onset and bilateral disease. The extent of familial risks has not, however, been fully assessed in population-based incidence studies. The purpose of the study was to quantify the risks for cancers of the breast, ovary and other sites of close relatives of women in whom breast cancer was diagnosed at an early age. Records collected between 1943 and 1990 at the Danish Cancer Registry were searched, and 2860 women were found in whom breast cancer was diagnosed before age 40. Population registers and parish records were used to identify 14 973 parents, siblings and offspring of these women. Cancer occurrence through to 31 December 1993 was determined within the Cancer Registry's files and compared with national incidence rates. Women with early-onset breast cancer were at a nearly fourfold increased risk of developing a new cancer later in life (268 observed vs. 68.9 expected). The excess risk was most evident for second cancer of the breast (181 vs. 24.5) and for ovarian cancer (20 vs. 3.3). For mothers and sisters, risks for cancers of the breast and ovary were significantly increased by two- to threefold. Bilateral breast cancer and breast-ovarian cancer were very strong predictors of familial risks, with one in four female relatives predicted to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer by age 75. Mothers had a slightly increased risk of colon cancer, but not endometrial cancer. The risk for breast cancer was also increased among fathers (standardized incidence ratio 2.5; 95% CI 0.5-7.4) and especially brothers (29; 7.7-74), although based on small numbers. The risk for prostatic cancer was unremarkable. In this large population-based survey, the first-degree relatives of women who developed breast cancer before age 40 were prone to ovarian cancer as well as male and female breast cancer, but not other tumours that may share susceptibility genes with breast cancer.  (+info)

Age of onset in Huntington disease: sex specific influence of apolipoprotein E genotype and normal CAG repeat length. (5/5966)

Age of onset (AO) of Huntington disease (HD) is known to be correlated with the length of an expanded CAG repeat in the HD gene. Apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype, in turn, is known to influence AO in Alzheimer disease, rendering the APOE gene a likely candidate to affect AO in other neurological diseases too. We therefore determined APOE genotype and normal CAG repeat length in the HD gene for 138 HD patients who were previously analysed with respect to CAG repeat length. Genotyping for APOE was performed blind to clinical information. In addition to highlighting the effect of the normal repeat length upon AO in maternally inherited HD and in male patients, we show that the APOE epsilon2epsilon3 genotype is associated with significantly earlier AO in males than in females. Such a sex difference in AO was not apparent for any of the other APOE genotypes. Our findings suggest that subtle differences in the course of the neurodegeneration in HD may allow interacting genes to exert gender specific effects upon AO.  (+info)

Multipoint oligogenic analysis of age-at-onset data with applications to Alzheimer disease pedigrees. (6/5966)

It is usually difficult to localize genes that cause diseases with late ages at onset. These diseases frequently exhibit complex modes of inheritance, and only recent generations are available to be genotyped and phenotyped. In this situation, multipoint analysis using traditional exact linkage analysis methods, with many markers and full pedigree information, is a computationally intractable problem. Fortunately, Monte Carlo Markov chain sampling provides a tool to address this issue. By treating age at onset as a right-censored quantitative trait, we expand the methods used by Heath (1997) and illustrate them using an Alzheimer disease (AD) data set. This approach estimates the number, sizes, allele frequencies, and positions of quantitative trait loci (QTLs). In this simultaneous multipoint linkage and segregation analysis method, the QTLs are assumed to be diallelic and to interact additively. In the AD data set, we were able to localize correctly, quickly, and accurately two known genes, despite the existence of substantial genetic heterogeneity, thus demonstrating the great promise of these methods for the dissection of late-onset oligogenic diseases.  (+info)

Analysis of affected sib pairs, with covariates--with and without constraints. (7/5966)

Covariate models have previously been developed as an extension to affected-sib-pair methods in which the covariate effects are jointly estimated with the degree of excess allele sharing. These models can estimate the differences in sib-pair allele sharing that are associated with measurable environment or genes. When there are no covariates, the pattern of identical-by-descent allele sharing in affected sib pairs is expected to fall within a small triangular region of the potential parameter space, under most genetic models. By restriction of the estimated allele sharing to this triangle, improved power is obtained in tests for genetic linkage. When the affected-sib-pair model is generalized to allow for covariates that affect allele sharing, however, new constraints and new methods for the application of constraints are required. Three generalized constraint methods are proposed and evaluated by use of simulated data. The results compare the power of the different methods, with and without covariates, for a single-gene model with age-dependent onset and for quantitative and qualitative gene-environment and gene-gene interaction models. Covariates can improve the power to detect linkage and can be particularly valuable when there are qualitative gene-environment interactions. In most situations, the best strategy is to assume that there is no dominance variance and to obtain constrained estimates for covariate models under this assumption.  (+info)

Identification of a C/G polymorphism in the promoter region of the BRCA1 gene and its use as a marker for rapid detection of promoter deletions. (8/5966)

Reduced expression of BRCA1 has been implicated in sporadic breast cancer, although the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon remain unclear. To determine whether regulatory mutations could account for the reduced expression, we screened the promoter region by sequencing in 20 patients with sporadic disease. No mutations were detected; however, a new polymorphism consisting of a C-to-G base change within the beta-promoter was identified, with the frequency of the G allele being 0.34. Close to complete linkage disequilibrium was found between this marker and the Pro871 Leu polymorphism, situated in exon 11, which has previously been shown not to be associated with breast or ovarian cancer. This indicates that the C/G polymorphism is also unlikely to play a role in either disease. However, the strength of linkage disequilibrium between these markers permitted their use for rapid screening for genomic deletions within BRCA1. A series of 214 cases with familial breast cancer were analysed using this approach; 88/214 were heterozygous for the promoter polymorphism, thereby excluding a deletion in this region. Among the remaining patients, one hemizygous case reflecting a promoter deletion was successfully identified. Therefore, this study indicates that deletions within the beta-promoter region of BRCA1 are an uncommon event in familial breast cancer. Furthermore, it suggests that mutations within the BRCA1 promoter are unlikely to account for the reported decreased expression of BRCA1 in sporadic disease.  (+info)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves immune attacks on the CNS, leading to demyelination, axonal injury and increasing neurological dysfunction. Though T cells are implicated, the particular subsets and their antigenic targets remain unknown. In adult-onset MS, distinguishing immune responses that are consequences of, rather than cause of, injury, is difficult. In contrast, pediatric-onset MS offers an early window into disease mechanisms given the narrower gap from biological onset. We aim to identify and characterize disease-relevant antigen-specific effector T cell responses to traditional and novel antigenic targets involved early in the MS disease process.. Our group has implicated target antigens and T cell subsets in pediatric-onset MS, by following patients from time of an initial presentation with acquired demyelinating syndrome and comparing those confirmed to have MS with those who remain monophasic. A CSF proteomic study implicated novel axo-glial apparatus molecules as early injury ...
Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALXN) today announced that it has reached a national funding agreement with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the National Health Service (NHS) England based on a Managed Access Agreement (MAA), which provides access to Strensiq® (asfotase alfa) for patients in England with pediatric-onset hypophosphatasia (HPP), regardless of their current age. The funding agreement was announced today in a positive final evaluation determination (FED) issued by the NICE Highly Specialised Technologies (HST) Evaluation Committee to recommend Strensiq according to the MAA. The MAA has been developed in collaboration between physician thought-leaders, patient groups, NHS England, and Alexion. The MAA ensures access to Strensiq for infants, children and adult patients with pediatric-onset HPP who experience the most disabling symptoms and are expected to benefit most from therapy.
Cancer is in essence a genetic disease, brought about by an accumulation of alterations in genes that encode proteins responsible for the control of cell growth, cell death and the maintenance of genomic integrity. Recent years have seen the unravelling of numerous genes that are targeted in carcinogenesis. Although several genes implicated in breast cancer have been identified, a substantial proportion of breast cancer cases is not linked to any definite gene, implying that more gene targets remain to be discovered. Based on clinicopathological differences observed between early and late onset breast cancers, it has been proposed that they may be biologically different with separate genetic origins and/or development. The work included in this thesis was initiated with the intent to identify some of the genetic aberrations that characterise early onset breast cancer.. The p53 protein is central in cell cycle control and alterations in its gene sequence are among the most commonly observed ...

Abstract Background Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS) is a well-recognized functional gastrointestinal disorder in children but its presentation is poorly understood in adults. Genetic differences in pediatric-onset (presentation before age 18) and adult-onset CVS have been reported recently but their clinical features and possible differences in response to therapy have not been well studied. Methods This was a retrospective review of 101 CVS patients seen at the Medical College of Wisconsin between 2006 and 2008. Rome III criteria were utilized to make the diagnosis of CVS. Results Our study population comprised of 29(29%) pediatric-onset and 72 (71%) adult-onset CVS patients. Pediatric-onset CVS patients were more likely to be female (86% vs. 57%, p = 0.005) and had a higher prevalence of CVS plus (CVS + neurocognitive disorders) as compared to adult-onset CVS patients (14% vs. 3%, p = 0.05). There was a longer delay in diagnosis (10 ± 7 years) in the pediatric-onset group when compared to (5 ± 7
The salient findings of our study are that both adult- and pediatric-onset CVS patients have a similar demographic profile and disease characteristics except that pediatric-onset patients were more likely to be female and had a higher prevalence of CVS-plus with concomitant neurological disorders. This finding may be explained by the genetic differences that have been elucidated in previous studies [2, 10, 11]. The pediatric-onset group also had a lower incidence of tobacco and opiate use and a significantly longer delay in diagnosis of CVS. This longer delay in diagnosis is an unexpected finding given that CVS is fairly well-recognized condition in children. It should be noted that though our center attracts both children and adults with CVS, the majority of the patients with pediatric-onset CVS were not transitioned from the Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin, which is also a tertiary center for pediatric CVS. Dysautonomia was diagnosed in 64 % of our CVS patients which we recently reported to ...

Introduction In an attempt to have more accurate information on the epidemiology of psychiatric disorders in different cultures, the WHO launched the World Mental Health (WMH) Surveys Initiative,1 with over 30 participating countries, using an extended and expanded version of the WHO-Composite International Diagnostic Interview (WMH-CIDI),2 based on diagnostic criteria from the International Classification of Diseases and Injuries 10th Revision (ICD-10)3 and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition (DSMIV).4 This manuscript is based on the São Paulo Megacity Mental Health Survey (SPMHS),5 carried out in conjunction with the WMH Surveys Initiative,5 which assessed the general population living in the São Paulo Metropolitan Area (SPMA). So far, few population-based surveys assessing psychiatric morbidity in the community have been conducted in Brazil. In the early 90s, the Brazilian Multicentric Study of Psychiatric Morbidity was carried out in three cities, using ...
Our aim was to characterize and validate that the location and age of onset of the tumor are both important criteria to classify colorectal cancer (CRC). We analyzed clinical and molecular characteristics of early-onset CRC (EOCRC) and late-onset CRC (LOCRC), and we compared each tumor location between both ages-of-onset. In right-sided colon tumors, early-onset cases showed extensive Lynch syndrome (LS) features, with a relatively low frequency of chromosomal instability (CIN), but a high CpG island methylation phenotype. Nevertheless, late-onset cases showed predominantly sporadic features and microsatellite instability cases due to BRAF mutations. In left colon cancers, the most reliable clinical features were the tendency to develop polyps as well as multiple primary CRC associated with the late-onset subset. Apart from the higher degree of CIN in left-sided early-onset cancers, differential copy number alterations were also observed. Differences among rectal cancers showed that early-onset ...
A new study led by scientists at the University of Southampton has found that inherited variation in a particular gene may be to blame for the lower survival rate of patients diagnosed with early-onset breast cancer.
We conducted a systematic review of the risk of pancreatic cancer in people with type I and young-onset diabetes. In three cohort and six case-control studies, the relative risk for pancreatic cancer in people with (vs without) diabetes was 2.00 (95% confidence interval 1.37-3.01) based on 39 cases with diabetes.
In a population-based cohort study, adults with young-onset diabetes (YOD) experienced excess hospitalizations across their lifespan compared with those with usual-onset type 2 diabetes (T2D), including a large burden of mental illness in young adulthood. Adults aged 20-75 years in population-based (2002 to 2014; n=422,908) and registry-based (200 to 2014; n=20,886) T2D cohorts were included.

Compared to the childhood-onset sort, less impairment in several cognitive and psychological capabilities are present, plus the adolescent-onset variety could remit by adulthood.[eighteen] In addition to this differentiation, the DSM-5 supplies a specifier for just a callous and unemotional interpersonal design, which demonstrates properties observed in psychopathy and so are thought being a childhood precursor to this disorder. As compared to the adolescent-onset subtype, the childhood onset subtype, especially if callous and unemotional attributes are existing, tend to possess a even worse treatment final result.[19 ...
Researchers from McGill University have revealed that an enzyme called the focal adhesion kinase (FAK) plays a pivotal role in the onset of breast cancer
We found by analysis of cross-sectional data that LADA was four times more common in subjects with FHD. In addition, prospective data showed that subjects who had siblings with diabetes were twice as likely to develop LADA during the 11-year follow-up compared with those without FHD. Together, these findings demonstrate that FHD is a risk factor for LADA of the same magnitude as for type 2 diabetes.. With regard to type 2 diabetes, our study confirms previous findings indicating a four times increased prevalence in subjects with FHD (6-8). For type 1 diabetes, the association with FHD was weak compared with previous data (2). One reason may be that the majority of our type 1 diabetic subjects (66%) had onset at age ≥20. The genetic background may be stronger in subjects with early-onset type 1 diabetes (15). Accordingly, we found that 40% of subjects with onset of type 1 diabetes before the age of 20 had FHD compared with 25% of those with onset during adulthood.. Previous reports have shown ...

A recent scan of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the region 40-107 Mb on chromosome 10q in a large Japanese case-control cohort identified six SNPs in or near the dynamin-binding protein gene (DNMBP) that were associated with late onset Alzheimers disease (LOAD) in individuals lacking the APOE ε4 allele [Kuwano et al. (2006); Hum Mol Genet 15:2170-2182]. We genotyped these six SNPs in 1,212 unrelated Caucasian patients of UK origin with LOAD and 1,389 ethnically, gender and age matched control subjects. We did not observe a statistically significant association with the risk of LOAD for any of the six SNPs in the sample as a whole. When stratifying the sample by APOE one SNP (intergenic SNP rs11190302) was associated with LOAD in individuals lacking the ε4 allele (genotypic P = 0.027, allelic P = 0.066). However this association was in the opposite direction to that detected in the Japanese population. It remains to be determined whether DNMBP is associated with LOAD. © 2008 ...
Meta-analyses in adult-onset schizophrenia report loss of normal planum temporale (PT) asymmetry, posited to relate to language and symptoms, but are inconclusive regarding global cerebral torque. PT asymmetry has been reported unchanged in childhood onset schizophrenia. Here the discrepancy is examined in adolescence. Unbiased PT asymmetry and torque measures were obtained on 35 adolescents with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder and 31 adolescent controls. Patients had less PT asymmetry than controls, but torque was unchanged. Taken with previous reports, these results in adolescent onset psychosis suggest that local disturbance of cerebral asymmetry increases with patient age; it could indicate that differential rate of change at the cortical surface in the two hemispheres is the mechanism of symptom generation.

What is early onset Parkinsons disease, and how is it different? Learn how Parkinsons can affect younger individuals how their experience may differ.
Background: There is wide variation in the phenotypic expression of Parkinsons disease (PD) which is driven by both genetic and epidemiological influences. for young onset PD. We present here baseline clinical data from this large and demographically representative cohort. Results: 2247 PD cases were recruited (1987 recent onset 260 young onset). Recent onset cases had a mean (standard deviation SD) age of 67.6 years (9.3) at study entry 65.7% PKI-402 males with disease duration 1.3 years (0.9) MDS-UPDRS 3 scores 22.9 (12.3) LEDD 295?mg/day (211) and PDQ-8 score 5.9 (4.8). Young onset cases were 53.5 years old (7.8) at study entry 66.9% male with disease duration 10.2 years (6.7) MDS-UPDRS 3 scores 27.4 (15.3) LEDD 926?mg/day (567) and PDQ-8 score 11.6 (6.1). Conclusions: We have established a large clinical PD cohort consisting of young onset and recent onset cases which was created to assess variation in medical expression with regards to hereditary influences and that provides a system for ...

Breast cancer is increasing in the industrialised countries. Due to early detection and adjuvaut treatment with radiotherapy, hormones and chemotherapy, mortality has decreased. The different adjuvant treatments have adverse effects. It is an important task is to estimate the risk of recurrence for the individual patient in order to tailor her individual treatment. This thesis aims at identifying predictors for disease development in primary and disseminated breast cancer.. Histologic grade was strongly correlated to breast cancer mortality in 630 patients with primary breast cancer. The combination of grade, tumour size and lymph node status in the Nottingham Prognostic Index provides a powerful instrument separating patients in groups with excellent, good, intermediate and poor prognosis.. Grade was more sensitive than S-phase fraction in identifying high risk patients and patients with very good prognosis.. Presence of cancer cells in blood- and lymph vessels close to the tumour in patients ...
Although there are similarities between patients with Parkinsons, there are some unique challenges that those with young-onset Parkinsons disease face.
A new study led by scientists at the University of Southampton has found that inherited variation in a particular gene may be to blame for the lower survival rate of patients diagnosed with early-onset breast cancer.. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women, with nearly 450,000 deaths per year from the disease worldwide. However, women aged 15-39 at diagnosis have a poorer chance of surviving their cancer than older women* (although survival rates for the disease are generally high).. This difference is partly due to the higher incidence of adverse tumour types that occur in younger women, but age is an independent risk factor even after accounting for differences in tumour type and treatment.. The Southampton study - one of the largest ever undertaken into the link between genes and breast cancer survival in women aged 40 or under at diagnosis - looked at which factors, other than the features of the cancer tissue, might contribute to the poorer survival rate ...
Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is a genetically and phenotypically complex disease that is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Previously we completed a genome-wide scan for early-onset POAG that identified a locus on 9q22 (GLC1J). To identify potential causative variants underlying GLC1J, we used targeted DNA capture followed by high throughput sequencing of individuals from four GLC1J pedigrees, followed by Sanger sequencing to screen candidate variants in additional pedigrees. A mutation likely to cause early-onset glaucoma was not identified, however COL15A1 variants were found in the youngest affected members of 7 of 15 pedigrees with variable disease onset. In addition, the most common COL15A1 variant, R163H, influenced the age of onset in adult POAG cases. RNA in situ hybridization of mouse eyes shows that Col15a1 is expressed in the multiple ocular structures including ciliary body, astrocytes of the optic nerve and cells in the ganglion cell layer. Sanger sequencing of COL18A1, a

Background The major determinant of age-at-onset (AAO) in Huntington disease (HD) is the length of the causative polyglutamine expansion in the huntingtin protein, which is inversely correlated with the AAO and the course of the disease. However, both environmental and genetic factors are thought to modify the disease. Here, genetic factors are proposed to have an essential influence and especially polymorphism in genes associated with HD pathogenesis are thought to act as genetic modifiers. One characteristic feature in HD pathogenesis is mitochondrial dysfunction, which is marked by an impairment of mitochondrial integrity and trafficking leading to a disruption of mitochondrial function and an inhibition of energy supply in the cell. Amongst others, mutant huntingtin was shown to lead to oxidative stress, increased fragmentation of mitochondria and reduced ATP levels. A regulated expression of proteins, involved in mitochondrial fission and fusion (eg, Mfn1, Mfn2) antagonises the pathogenic ...

Parkinsons isnt thought of as a young persons disease. Yet, those with young onset PD have different symptoms & side effects. Learn more.
A common misconception about Parkinsons is that it only affects older people. Although the average age of onset is 65, Parkinsons can affect adults of any age. It is estimated that 1 in 5 people living with Parkinsons are of working age. This is known as Young Onset Parkinsons.

So during the next 6 months I tried to get my life together again. I was invited to attend a "Parkinsons Disease Study Day" at the NDDH where one of the speakers was the Chairman of YAPP&Rs (Mrs Emma Bennion) plus 3 consultants and a premier of the video "The Uninvited Guest" a video about young onset Parkinsons Disease. This study day was aimed at Nurses, Practice Nurses, Community nurses, physio`s, OT`s and Hospital GPs, GPRs and junior Doctors and other Health care staff. The most astonishing aspect to me that day was the lack of knowledge of professionals in dealing with PWP`s and how Parkinsons affects their daily lives. Also to realise how the symptom of PD can change so rapidly from one extreme to another and that PWPs each have their own brand of "Parkinsons". As a result of this day I was ask to appear on a Radio Devon phone in program about Parkinsons with Janet Stanley PD nurse specialist and a fellow sufferer Joe Chappell from North Devon. A very good program but as always too ...

Admixture analysis of age at onset (AAO) has helped delineating the clinical profile of early onset (EO) bipolar disorder (BD). However, there is scarce evidence comparing the distributional properties of AAO as well as the clinical features of EO BD type 1 (BD1) with EO BD type 2 (BD2). To this end, we studied 515 BD patients (224 BD1, 279 BD2, and 12 BD not otherwise specified [NOS]) diagnosed according to DSM-IV-TR criteria. AAO was defined as the first reliably diagnosed hypo/manic or depressive episode according to diagnostic criteria. We used normal distribution mixture analysis to identify subgroups of patients according to AAO. Models were chosen according to the Schwarzs Bayesian information criteria (BIC). Clinical correlates of EO were analysed using univariate tests and multivariate logistic regression models. A two normal components model best fitted the observed distribution of AAO in BD1 (BIC = −1599.3), BD2 (BIC = −2158.4), and in the whole sample (BIC = −3854.9). A higher number

The ideal patient for laser hair removal has a low Fitzpatrick skin type and dark hair, thereby minimizing the competition between the melanin of the epidermis and the melanin of the hair. In order to minimize unwanted laser energy absorption by epidermal melanin in SOC (Fitzpatrick Skin Types V-VI), a wavelength should be chosen that minimizes the epidermal melanins absorption. The epidermal melanin absorbs less light as one progresses towards longer wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Thus, the long pulsed 1064 nm Nd:YAG is able to safely pass through the epidermal melanin while still allowing sufficient absorption of the follicular melanin to be an effective tool for LHR.. Unfortunately, the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser is not quite as effective as the 755 nm alexandrite laser, which can be safely used in lighter skin types, because just as there is less epidermal melanin absorption, there is also less follicular melanin absorption.7 It is better to carry out more treatment sessions with ...
The contribution of genetic factors to the age at onset in multiple sclerosis is poorly understood. Our objective was to investigate the disease modifying effects of HLA-DRB1 alleles and allele interactions on age at onset of multiple sclerosis. High-resolution four-digit HLA-DRB1 genotyping was performed in a cohort of 461 multiple sclerosis patients from the Perth Demyelinating Diseases Database. Carriage of the HLA-DRB1*1501 risk allele was not significantly associated with age at onset but HLA-DRB1*0801 was associated with a later onset of the disease. The HLA-DRB1*0401 allele was associated with a reduced age at onset when combined with DRB1*1501 but may delay age at onset when combined with DRB1*0801. These findings indicate that epistatic interactions at the HLA-DRB1 locus have significant modifying effects on age at onset of multiple sclerosis and demonstrate the value of high-resolution genotyping in detecting such associations.. ...
The progression and symptoms of early-onset Alzheimers Disease, typically identified in patients in their 40s or 50s, can vary dramatically depending on the individual. According to the Alzheimers Association,
Our data comparing late onset, necropsy confirmed AD cases to non-demented controls (matched for age and sex) are consistent with those of Lambert et al,3 in that the A allele of the 3′UTR polymorphism was associated with a reduction in the risk of AD. The rare A allele, found in 8% of controls, appears to confer a protective effect. The magnitude of this effect (OR=0.59 for A allele) is similar to that described in the combined samples of Lambert et al 3 (OR=0.60). It is also reassuring that the allele and genotype frequencies in our cases and controls were similar to those reported by Lambert et al.3 For instance, the A allele was found in 4% of the pooled cases and 7% of the pooled controls described previously,3 and in 5% of our cases and 8% of our controls. We observed no significant differences between the genotype frequencies in the cases and controls. This is probably because there are twice as many alleles as genotypes, which therefore results in a greater power to detect an effect. ...
Results IFI were recorded in 33/852 (3.9%) cSLE patients. Proven IFI was evidenced in 22 cSLE patients, probable IFI in 5 and possible IFI in 6. The most frequent types of IFI were candidiasis (n=20) and aspergillosis (n=9). The median of disease duration was lower (1.0 vs. 4.7 years, p,0.0001), with a higher current SLEDAI-2K [19.5 (0-44) vs. 2 (0-45), p,0.0001] and current prednisone dose [50 (10-60) vs. 10 (2-90) mg/day, p,0.0001] in patients with IFI compared to those without IFI. The frequency of death was higher in the former group (51% vs. 6%, p,0.0001). Logistic regression analysis revealed that SLEDAI-2K (OR=1.108; 95%CI=1.057-1.163; p,0.0001), current prednisone dose (OR=1.046; 95%CI=1.021-1.071; p,0.0001) and disease duration (OR=0.984; 95%CI=0.969-0.998; p=0.030) were independent risk factors for IFI (R2 Nagelkerke 0.425). ...
Strong evidence of linkage to late-onset Alzheimer disease (LOAD) has been observed on chromosome 10, which implicates a wide region and at least one disease-susceptibility locus. Although significant associations with several biological candidate genes on chromosome 10 have been reported, these findings have not been consistently replicated, and they remain controversial. We performed a chromosome 10-specific association study with 1,412 gene-based single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), to identify susceptibility genes for developing LOAD. The scan included SNPs in 677 of 1,270 known or predicted genes; each gene contained one or more markers, about half (48%) of which represented putative functional mutations. In general, the initial testing was performed in a white case-control sample from the St. Louis area, with 419 LOAD cases and 377 age-matched controls. Markers that showed significant association in the exploratory analysis were followed up in several other white case-control sample sets to
Prust et al, characterized 30 patients with Alexander disease and reviewed 185 previously reported cases in an effort to better determine the disease’s phenotypes and correlations with age at onset and genetic mutation. Based on their results, they propose to revise the Alexander’s disease subtypes from three to only two. Type I is characterized by early age at onset, seizures, encephalopathy, paroxysmal deterioration, failure to thrive, developmental delay and hallmark radiological features. In contrast, type II manifests across the lifespan and is characterized by autonomic dysfunction, bulbar symptoms, ocular movement abnormalities and palatal myoclonus and is largely without neurocognitive or developmental deficits..

Results Patients with VP had a higher age at symptom onset and lower disease duration than patients with PD. The most frequent symptom at onset was gait disorder in VP and tremor in PD. Gait disorder, postural instability and falls were more frequent in VP. Rest and mixed tremor were more prevalent in PD. Of the patients who received levodopa treatment in the VP group, only about half had a good response. Qualitatively 123I-FP-CIT SPECT images were normal in 32.5% of patients with VP and abnormal in all patients with PD. The use of different visual score patterns showed higher ability to differentiate VP from PD. Semi-quantitative analysis showed significantly higher uptake in the striatum, caudate and putamen in VP. The asymmetry index was higher in patients with PD. Among patients with VP, falls were the only clinical feature that demonstrated a correlation with the SPECT visual pattern.. ...
Mutations in the ABCA3 gene can result in fatal surfactant deficiency in term newborn infants and chronic interstitial lung disease in older children. Previous studies on ABCA3 mutations have focused primarily on the genetic abnormalities and reported limited clinical information about the resultant disease. A study was undertaken to analyse systematically the clinical presentation, pulmonary function, diagnostic imaging, pathological features and outcomes of children with ABCA3 mutations. The records of nine children with ABCA3 mutations evaluated at Texas Childrens Hospital between 1992 and 2005 were reviewed and their current clinical status updated. Previous diagnostic imaging studies and lung biopsy specimens were re-examined. The results of DNA analyses were confirmed. Age at symptom onset ranged from birth to 4 years. Cough, crackles, failure to thrive and clubbing were frequent findings. Mean lung function was low but tended to remain static. CT scans commonly revealed ground-glass ...

The aim of this study was to analyse the effect of age at onset on the long-term clinical, social and global outcomes of schizophrenia through a systematic review and a meta-analysis. Original studies were searched from Web of Science, PsycINFO, Pubmed and Scopus, as well as manually. Naturalistic studies with at least a 2-year follow-up were included. Of the 3509 search results, 81 articles fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The meta-analysis was performed in Stata as a random-effect analysis with correlation coefficients between age at onset and the outcomes (categorized into remission, relapse, hospitalization, positive symptoms, negative symptoms, total symptoms, general clinical outcome, employment, social/occupational functioning and global outcome). There was a statistically significant (P , .05) correlation between younger age at onset and more hospitalizations (number of studies, n = 9; correlation, r = 0.17; 95% confidence interval, CI 0.09-0.25), more negative symptoms (n = 7; r = ...
The type and number of copies a person has of the APOE (apolipoprotein E) allele is associated with the risk of developing late-onset Alzheimers. The APOE gene has several functions, including carrying blood cholesterol through the body. APOE is found in neurons and brain cells in healthy brains and in plaques in the Alzheimers brain. Three common alleles are E2, E3, and E4. E2 is thought to protect from Alzheimers, E3 (the most common) is thought to be neutral, and E4 is linked to an increased risk of Alzheimers. People with two E4 alleles, have a greater risk of developing Alzheimers, but may not develop the disease, just as people without any of the E4 variant may develop the disease ...

This mutation was identified in a Japanese family known as OS-2, which was affected by early onset Alzheimers disease (Kamino et al., 1996). The reported pedigree shows four affected individuals over two generations. The mean age of onset in this family was 45.0 ± 4.24 (range: 42-48). Further clinical details were not reported. The mutation was found in one affected family member by direct sequencing. Segregation with disease could not be determined due to lack of DNA from other family members.. ...
Internationally known for her research in the molecular genetics of cancer, Olufunmilayo I. Olopade, MD, FACP, first became interested in oncology during medical school in Nigeria, where she cared for patients with Burkitts lymphoma. After moving to Chicago in 1983 to continue her medical education, Dr. Olopade became interested in the fundamental biology of cancer, especially solid tumors, and in finding ways to translate research in genetics to the development of more effective therapies for patients.. In the early 1980s, Dr. Olopade was the recipient of ASCOs Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award, which she used to study chromosomal abnormalities in brain tumors. She later concentrated her research on the molecular genetics of breast cancer in diverse populations, cancer risk assessment, personalized approaches to prevention, and disparities in health outcomes. In 2005, she received a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant, and the following year, was the recipient of the American ...
Author Terry Pratchett recently announced that he has early onset Alzheimers disease, a form of the brain disorder that strikes before the age of 65.

I loved being able to see and hear Jim tell his corny jokes, tall tales, but most of all, I loved to hear him sing. I watched the tapes of him singing through blurred eyes. He and his brother Billy sang several songs, and the song "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" was almost prophetic. It told of comfort, friends, dreams, and having that person to hold you up when times are rough. More important it told the kind of man Jim was. He was always on my side. He was my husband, my friend, my bridge. He encouraged me to shine ...
Health care transition (HCT) is a process that requires preparation as a continuum from pediatric- to adult-focused services. For adolescents and young adults with chronic or ESRD, this process can be prolonged due to their physical, psychological, family, or ecological factors. HCT preparation is a matter of patient safety and patient rights as the consequences of poor preparation at the time of transfer to adult-focused services are great, including rejection of organs, disease relapse, or even death. We present a case to illustrate important points of HCT preparation, with suggestions for intervention by the interdisciplinary team members who serve (and will serve) these survivors of pediatric-onset health conditions ...
OBJECTIVE-To examine academic achievement in children with diabetes and to identify predictors of achievement.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-Participants were 244 children, ages 8-18 years, with type 1 diabetes. Measures included school-administered standardized achievement tests (Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and Iowa Tests of Educational Development [ITBS/ITED]), grade point averages (GPAs), school absences, behavioral assessment, age at disease onset, hospitalizations, and HbA1c. Statistical differences between subgroups of children were evaluated using t test and ANOVA, statistically controlling for socioeconomic status. Regression analyses were carried out to examine predictors of academic performance.. RESULTS-Reading scores and GPA were lower for children with poor metabolic control than for children with average control. Children with hospitalizations for hyperglycemia had lower overall achievement scores than children with better metabolic control and fewer hospitalizations for ...
Side views of the structure of a Flak protein, a member of the same family of proteins that include presenilin, which is implicated in the onset of Alzheimers. Understanding the structure of these proteins is an early step in the development of drugs that can combat dementia.. The technical tour de force was published online July 17 in the journal Nature.. The Yale team described the crystal structure of a protease - a protein that acts like molecular scissors, cutting up proteins into component parts - found in membranes of an a single-celled organism. This membrane protein belongs to the GxGD membrane protease family. The most "famous" member of the family is a human protein called presenilin, which has been implicated in the production of amyloid beta, peptides that cause Alzheimers disease. Presenilin carries more than 100 mutations that can lead to familial and early-onset Alzheimers disease.. "Some of the key structural elements that allow the (archaea) protein to do its job are very ...
Pearse, PhD, confirmed what had long been observed in mouse models-that the mutations associated with early-onset Alzheimers disease are directly related to protein cleavage errors that cause a rise in amyloid-beta (Aβ) protein 42, which all people produce but somehow clump together to form plaques in Alzheimers patients.
How is age at illness onset important to people with schizophrenia? Differences are observed in the age of onset of psychotic symptoms, which may be influenced by genetic or environmental risk factors, or sex. For example, although schizophrenia typically has an onset during late adolescence or early adulthood, research has shown that males generally display a younger age of onset than females. Understanding the factors that impact on age at the onset of symptoms could lead to better understanding of the risk factors for the disorder and earlier and improved intervention strategies for patients.. What is the evidence relating to age at onset?. Moderate to high quality evidence suggests the incidence (new cases) of schizophrenia is higher in males up until 40 years of age, then higher in females after 50 years of age. Moderate to low quality evidence suggests there are more males than females in first-episode psychosis samples, and a younger age at first contact with services for males compared ...
Although genetic Aβ variants cause early-onset Alzheimers disease, literature reports on Aβ properties are heterogeneous, obscuring molecular mechanisms, as illustrated by recent failures of Aβ-level targeting trials. Thus, we combined available data on Aβ levels and ratios, aggregation propensities, toxicities, and patient data for Aβ variants and correlated these data Read & Research Alzheimers More. ...
People with early-onset or young-onset Alzheimer's make up about 5 percent, or 250,000, of the roughly 5 million sufferers of Alzheimer's across the nation. Symptoms for young-onset sufferers can include memory loss and an inability to solve problems and poor judgment.
My husband Mike was diagnosed at the age of 36 with Young Onset Alzheimers Disease. For almost 11 years, my children & I took care of Mike at home - until he passed away on February 28, 2012 at the age of 47. When Mike was first diagnosed, he gave me permission to place him in a nursing home, but I chose not to do that. With the help of my children, family &aides, I kept the promise to myself that I would keep him home until the end. I began this blog about 5 years ago to keep family and friends updated on Mikes condition as he weathered some difficult health issues and hospitalizations. During the process, it became a method for me to vent about issues that directly effected us as a family caring for someone with AD. Nothing along this journey has been easy & I will continue to advocate & be the voice for all those patients who have been silenced by Alzheimers Disease. NO ONE SURVIVES ALZHEIMERS, the disease does not discriminate and I will do all I can to make a difference. My faith ...

Systemic scleroderma in children is very rare and is considered similar to adult-onset disease. In adults, new etiopathogenetic and therapeutic approaches have emerged in recent years. For instance, i
A number of factors identified in our microarray analysis were shown to be important for monocyte extravasation. Monocyte migration plays a key role in the pathogenesis of RA since the number of monocyte derived macrophages is higher in RA compared to normal joints and is well correlated with radiological damage, joint pain and inflammation. Macrophages play a central role in RA pathogenesis by producing proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines, matrix metalloproteinases(MMPs), proangiogenic factors and differentiating to osteoclasts. Hence, factors modulating monocyte ingression can mediate inflammation and bone erosion. Therefore, one of the main objectives of our laboratory is to determine the molecular mechanism(s) responsible for enhanced recruitment of monocytes into the RA synovial joint space.. Another research interest in our laboratory is to inhibit angiogenesis in the early disease onset since angiogenesis is an early and a critical event in the pathogenesis of RA that promotes ...

DEMENTIA is more common in older people. However the condition can affect people under the age of 65 - and these people are considered to have young-onset, or early-onset dementia.
There is adequate evidence that schizophrenia may have its onset at any age in childhood as well as past middle age although the vast majority of onsets indisputably fall within the interval 15 to 54 years of age. Onsets in men peak steeply in the age group 20 to 24 years thereafter the rate of inception remains more or less constant at a lower level. In women, a less prominent peak in the age group 20 to 24 years is followed by another increase in incidence in age groups older than 35. While.... ...

Founder - Katherine Swift. "The motivation behind NatuRem was initially because I wanted to see my family and friends live long, happy and healthy lives.". In 2010 my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Watching my mother fight the disease made me realise that the most important thing in life is family, friends and health and so I decided that I wanted to do something positive to help the fight against breast cancer and other age related diseases. I became involved in supporting the ground breaking research of the world-renowned Professor Michael Lisanti.. Professor Lisanti has been making giant strides in identifying treatments that can slow down the ageing process which will have a knock on effect on all age related diseases such as cancer, Alzheimers, dementia, osteoporosis and diabetes to name a few and in doing so extend our health span.. The research has shown that many processes underpin the onsets on these diseases, oxidative stress, inflammation and dysfunctional ...
With the progress of medical care in recent years, the prognosis of intractable diseases of childhood onset has markedly improved. Young adults with special health care needs require continuous medical support throughout their lifetimes. To provide them with optimal health care services, a smooth transition from the pediatric medical system to the adult one is essential. However, in Japan many adult health providers are not sufficiently prepared to care for these patients, due both to limited opportunities to gain up-to-date medical knowledge on transitional health care and a lack of familiarity with the medical treatment of childhood-onset chronic diseases ...
Blood donors of the Madrid area show a 6% frequency of apolipoprotein E genotype carrying allele epsilon 4. This frequency is smaller than other populations of Caucasian origin. This proportion decreases to 4% in a selected sample of healthy individuals of ages | 60 years. The frequency (34%) of the allele epsilon 4 was significantly increased in patients of late onset Alzheimers disease, similarly to other populations. An earlier age of onset of the dementia is observed in the patients of late-onset Alzheimers disease carrying the allele epsilon 4. No increased frequency in allele epsilon 4 frequency was found in patients of early-onset Alzheimers disease. Patients of Parkinsons disease do not show any differences in the frequency of the alleles of apolipoprotein E when compared with healthy individuals.
Early-onset Alzheimers disease, also known as younger-onset affects people younger than 65, many people with this diagnosis are in their 40s and 50s, they have families and careers when Alzheimers disease strikes. In the United State it is estimated that approximately 200,000 people have early onset Alzheimers.. Getting a diagnosis for this dementia presents serious problems for people under 65. Health care providers generally dont look for the disease in younger patients and it is not uncommon for doctors to say that the symptoms may be related to stress menopause or depression. It can therefore be months or years before the right diagnosis is made and proper treatment can begin.. Although Early-onset Alzheimers disease (EOD) currently has no cure doctors have had some success in helping people maintain function, control behavior and slow the progression of the disease, in addition researchers are learning new things about Alzheimers disease every day.. The medical community does not ...
The CLU gene is located on p21-p12 of human chromosome 8, with CLU as its encoded product, which has various physiological functions, including participating in lipid metabolism (28), oxidative stress reaction (29), and cell cycle regulation (30). CLU is highly expressed in cerebrospinal fluid and amyloid plaques in brain tissues, and is involved in the pathogenesis of AD (4,5,31). Yerbury et al (32) demonstrated that the deposition of CLU in senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of AD. Howlett et al (33) further reported a correlation between CLU and senile plaque Aβ40 in the brain cortex of patients with AD. Martin-Rehrmann et al (34) demonstrated the presence of dysfunctional neurons with phosphorylated tau protein surrounding the senile plaques in 71% of CLU-positive patients with AD. Furthermore, they also showed that the tau and phosphorylated tau protein were significantly increased in the rat hippocampus, following the injection of a CLU-rich solution (34). It was suggested that ...
The project RHAPSODY analyzes European health and social care systems for the underserved group of people with young onset dementia. Results will be used to build and probe an educational, interactive e-learning programme for carers.. A multidisciplinary team of investigators from academia, industry and patient and carer organisations are joining their efforts in the RHAPSODY project (Research to Assess Policies and Strategies for Dementia in the Young). While dementia is commonly viewed as a health and social problem of old age, young onset dementia is defined by symptoms occurring before the age of 65 years.. Professor Alexander Kurz, project coordinator, mentions: When dementia strikes at a young age it is associated with specific and particularly severe problems for patients, family carers, and healthcare professionals. Young onset dementia has a profound impact on marital relationships and family structures, often involving children. Typically it leads to premature retirement and reduced ...

The majority of newborns screening positive for Krabbe disease have not exhibited the expected early infantile phenotype, with most clinically normal despite low galactocerebrosidase activity and two mutations. Most are expected to develop the later onset phenotypes. The World-Wide Krabbe Registry was developed in part to expand our understanding of the natural history of these rare variants. As of June 2011, 122 patients were enrolled in the registry: 62% manifested early infantile onset (previously reported), 10% manifested onset at 7-12 months (late infantile), 22% manifested onset at 13 months to 10 years (later onset), and 5% manifested adolescent/adult onset. Data on disease course, galactocerebrosidase activity, DNA mutations, and results of neurodiagnostic studies were obtained from questionnaires and medical records. Initial signs (late infantile) included loss of milestones and poor feeding, whereas later onset and adolescent/adult phenotypes presented with changes in gait. Elevated
Previous research has found that adolescent ethanol (EtOH) exposure alters drug seeking behaviors, cognition and neuroplasticity. Using male Sprague Dawley rats, differences in spatial working memory, non-spatial discrimination learning and behavioral flexibility were explored as a function of age at the onset (mid-adolescent vs. adult) of chronic EtOH exposure (CET). Concentrations of mature brain-derived neurotrophic factor (mBDNF) and betanerve growth factor (beta-NGF) in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus were also assessed at different time-points: during CET, following acute abstinence (48-hrs), and after protracted abstinence (6-8 wks). Our results revealed that an adolescent onset of CET leads to increased EtOH consumption that persisted into adulthood. In both adult and adolescent onset CET groups, there were significant long-term reductions in prefrontal cortical mBDNF and beta-NGF levels. However, only adult onset CET rats displayed decreased hippocampal BDNF levels. Spatial memory,
Monocular form deprivation was induced in all subjects with full-field, white translucent hemispheric diffusers (also called occluders) identical with that used in several studies of myopia in chicks. 1 10 27 The contralateral eye was left untreated and served as a control in all animals. The marmosets were randomly sorted into three groups by their age at onset of form deprivation: Group 1 (n = 6) began visual deprivation between 0 and 39 days of age (mean age at onset, 27 ± 10 days), for a mean duration of 32 ± 3 days. Group 2 (n = 10) began the deprivation between 40 and 99 days of age (mean age at onset, 58 ± 19 days), for a mean duration of 56 ± 14 days. Group 3 (n = 8) began the deprivation between 100 and 200 days (mean age at onset, 158 ± 32 days), for a mean duration of 51 ± 19 days. Figure 1shows the axial lengths of eyes in 181 binocularly untreated marmosets as a function of age (both eyes plotted with some repeated measures at different ages) and illustrates the axial growth ...
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope. Romans 5:3-4. Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. As a concentration camp inmate, he discovered the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most brutal ones, and thus, a reason to continue living in spite of all the evil surrounding him. Viktor Frankl later wrote about the patients he served after the Holocaust and declared, "I would say that our patients never really despair because of any suffering in itself! Instead, their despair stems in each instance from a doubt as to whether suffering is meaningful. Man is ready and willing to shoulder any suffering as soon and as long as he can see a meaning in it.". In todays passage, the Apostle Paul must have provided the genesis for the words of Viktor Frankl. Paul reminds his brothers and sisters in Rome that he and ...
Results Rheumatological manifestations were seen in 27.4% patients of XLA. Thirteen out of 17 patients had a proven mutation in Btk gene. Mean age at symptom onset was 3.3 years (range 6 months - 13 years) and mean age at diagnosis of XLA was 5.6 years (range 1.5- 10 years). Rheumatological manifestations were seen at a mean age of 8.7 years (range 1.5- 20 years). In 2 patients, arthritis preceded the diagnosis of XLA while 10 patients developed rheumatological manifestations after the diagnosis of XLA. Arthritis as an initial presentation of XLA was seen in 5 patients.. Oligoarthritis was the most common presentation seen in 15 patients. Knee was the most commonly involved joint (11 patients) followed by ankle joint in 5 patients and shoulder, wrist and hip arthritis in 2 patients each. One patient each had arthritis involving proximal interphalangeal joints of both hands, clinical evidence of sacroiliitis and spondylodiscitis involving L4-5 and L5-S1 vertebrae. Three patients manifested as ...
This paper evaluates how emergent age-based factors may impact upon the experience of dementia. A review of selected literature is undertaken to explore how personhood has been conceptualised in relation to dementia. It is then highlighted that very little literature explicitly addresses personhood with reference to young onset dementia. Young onset dementia is defined, and evaluation is then undertaken of the distinctive age-based factors that might shape the experience of the condition. It is noted that whilst there are separate literatures on both personhood and young onset dementia, there appears to be little endeavour to draw these two strands of thought together. The distinctive factors that shape young onset dementia suggest that a more heterogeneous perspective should be developed that accounts more appropriately for how personal characteristics shape the lived experience of dementia. The paper concludes that further research should be undertaken that has an explicit focus on personhood ...

Environmental compounds can promote epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult-onset disease in subsequent generations following ancestral exposure during fetal gonadal sex determination. The current study examined the ability of dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo[p]dioxin, TCDD) to promote epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of disease and DNA methylation epimutations in sperm. Gestating F0 generation females were exposed to dioxin during fetal day 8 to 14 and adult-onset disease was evaluated in F1 and F3 generation rats. The incidences of total disease and multiple disease increased in F1 and F3 generations. Prostate disease, ovarian primordial follicle loss and polycystic ovary disease were increased in F1 generation dioxin lineage. Kidney disease in males, pubertal abnormalities in females, ovarian primordial follicle loss and polycystic ovary disease were increased in F3 generation dioxin lineage animals. Analysis of the F3 generation sperm epigenome identified 50 differentially DNA
Late-onset Alzheimers disease (LOAD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder, with a complex etiology. APOE is the only confirmed susceptibility gene for LOAD. Others remain yet to be found. Evidence from linkage studies suggests that a gene (or genes) conferring susceptibility for LOAD resides on chromosome 10. We studied 23 positional/functional candidate genes from our linkage region on chromosome 10 (APBB1IP, ALOX5, AD037, SLC18A3, DKK1, ZWINT, ANK3, UBE2D1, CDC2, SIRT1, JDP1, NET7, SUPV3L1, NEN3, SAR1, SGPL1, SEC24C, CAMK2G, PP3CB, SNCG, CH25H, PLCE1, ANXV111) in the MRC genetic resource for LOAD. These candidates were screened for sequence polymorphisms in a sample of 14 LOAD subjects and detected polymorphisms tested for association with LOAD in a three-stage design involving two stages of genotyping pooled DNA samples followed by a third stage in which markers showing evidence for association in the first stages were subjected to individual genotyping. One hundred and twenty polymorphisms were
