Developmental malformations are a major cause of childhood mortality and are typically characterized by lesions that allow survival of the embryo through gestation. The genetics of developmental malformations are powerfully studied by using high-throughput, phenotype-driven screens (e.g., following zebrafish or mouse mutagenesis) or by genotype-driven studies using transgenic or knockout mice. With regard to either approach, the mouse is anatomically and phylogenetically closer to humans than any other genetically tractable model organism. This is particularly important in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, which have unique mammalian features. The identification of murine models of developmental malformations is, however, hindered by the opacity of the late gestational mouse embryo. In this review, we describe recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging that make it possible to rapidly identify malformations in the developing mouse embryo with high efficiency.

Background: Abnormal respiration during exercise is one of the major manifestations and a powerful predictor of survival in chronic heart failure (CHF). There have not been proposed the appropriate animal model to investigate the mechanism of respiratory abnormalities in CHF during exercise. In this study, we developed an experimental model using anesthetized CHF rats to evaluate exercise-induced abnormal respiration and central chemoreflex control function during exercise in CHF.. Methods: We used anesthetized 16 weeks old rats with/without myocardial infarction induced CHF. To mimic exercise, we induced muscle contraction by stimulating bilateral distal sciatic nerves. We recorded the respiratory change in response to sciatic nerve stimulation (SNS) with ramp (5 Hz, 0.01 Volts/sec) and step (5 Hz, 0.5 Volts) protocols. We also evaluated the change of the central chemosensitivity (ventilatory response to partial pressure of carbon dioxide in arterial blood; PaCO2) by CO2 gas inhalation (0, 3 ...

FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes an extracellular matrix protein that appears to function in the regulation of epidermal-basement membrane adhesion and organogenesis during development. Mutations in this gene cause Fraser syndrome, a multisystem malformation that can include craniofacial, urogenital and respiratory system abnormalities. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009 ...
EXPERT CONSENSUS for MANAGEMENT: Surgical morbi-mortality is higher than in the normal population and the risk of anesthetic complications is very high: these patients must therefore be managed in facilities where care of those complications can be taken.. It is why : - a full neurological examination is necessary before general or locoregional anesthesia. - imaging (MRI or CTscan) of the full spine is recommended - a flexion/extension MRI of the cervical spine is necessary if there is any concern about its stability. - polysomnography, respiratory functional tests (restrictive or obstructive syndrome) and cardiac evaluation (echocardiography) must be considered before an anesthesia. - morphological and functional anomalies of the upper airway, a decrease in mobility of the cervical spine and bronchial airway anomalies increase the morbidity and mortality of anesthesia. - a sedative premedication can be administered before anesthesia. - for intubation, a videolaryngoscope and a intubating ...
Excerpt:. The randomized phase II LOTUS trial has shown improved progression-free survival with the addition of the AKT inhibitor ipatasertib to paclitaxel in the first-line treatment of metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. These results were reported by Kim et al in The Lancet Oncology. The PI3K/AKT signaling pathway is frequently activated in triple-negative breast cancer.. In the double-blind trial, 124 patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic disease from 44 sites in South Korea, the United States, France, Spain, Taiwan, Singapore, Italy, and Belgium were randomized between September 2014 and February 2016 to receive paclitaxel at 80 mg/m² on days 1, 8, and 15 with either ipatasertib at 400 mg (n = 62) or placebo (n = 62) once daily on days 1 to 21 every 28 days until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Stratification factors included tumor PTEN status as determined by immunohistochemistry; deficient expression of PTEN is associated with greater AKT pathway ...
Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) results in a heavy burden on healthcare resources, and this burden is increasing due to a number of factors. By the nature of this chronic illness, mathematical modelling is the only method available to investigate the cost-effectiveness of new treatments in T2DM. To help populate and validate a new model of T2DM, this study was undertaken with the objective of quantifying hospital resource use as patients with and without diabetes approach death. Using the Cardiff Diabetes Database, mortality data from the Office of National Stistics for 1996 were linked to existing hospital records using probability matching techniques. Costs were attributed using a statistical costing technique (healthcare resource groups (HRGs)). Costs are UK 2000 prices. There were 4,394 deaths of which 412 (9.4%) were for patients with diabetes. In the year before death 380 (92%) DM+ patients with diabetes were admitted as an inpatient compared with 73% DM-, a relative rate of 1.27. Total inpatient ...
Its been my experience that, all things being equal, girls/women prefer confidence (even assholish OVER confidence) over lack of confidence. Girls get tired of wishy-washy Hamlet types (and in a few years theyre gonna be REALLY tired of em, since geeks/nerds/scottpilgrim-types are being overdone right now, ha ha). I was not confident for the majority of my twenties. Then, one day, I decided to just start faking that I knew what the hell I was all about. And instead of over-thinking and fretting and waffling about shit, I started pretending to not give a fuck. The difference was startling. I had a beautiful, seemingly well-adjusted 20-year-old just randomly start hanging out with me (in my mid-30s). I had a drop-dead gorgeous model (now working in HWood) pretty much ask ME out. Also, (again, all things being equal), and again, just in my experience, most women prefer being ogled over being ignored. It shakes their self-image and self-esteem if guys arent treating them like sex objects. They ...
The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage zooms into the sweet spot between raw performance and drop-dead looks-taking aim at the Porsche 911.
To our knowledge, this is the first multi-institutional study in children with tracheotomy reporting differences in clinical outcomes and hospital resource use based on the childs comorbid clinical conditions. Children with upper airway anomaly experienced lower in-hospital mortality rates at tracheotomy placement. Children with NI experienced both higher in-hospital mortality rates and greater hospital resource use 5 years after tracheotomy. These findings remained significant after controlling for important cofactors including ventilation support, use of postacute care facilities after hospital discharge, age, and gender.. This is the also the first study to document the substantial hospital use of children 5-years after tracheotomy. With an average length of stay exceeding 8 days, admissions for children with tracheotomy rank among the longest hospitalizations experienced by all children, including those with severe sepsis, Kawasaki disease, and hydrocephalus.32, 35-42 The impact of these ...
Paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporally associated with COVID-19 (PIMS-TS) is a novel condition that was first reported in April, 2020. We aimed to develop a national consensus management pathway for the UK to provide guidance for clinicians caring for children with PIMS-TS. A three-phase online Delphi process and virtual consensus meeting sought consensus over the investigation, management, and research priorities from multidisciplinary clinicians caring for children with PIMS-TS. We used 140 consensus statements to derive a consensus management pathway that describes the initial investigation of children with suspected PIMS-TS, including blood markers to help determine the severity of disease, an echocardiogram, and a viral and septic screen to exclude other infectious causes of illness. The importance of a multidisciplinary team in decision making for children with PIMS-TS is highlighted throughout the guidance, along with the recommended treatment options, including supportive care,

Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a well-recognised complication of cirrhosis, which is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Subtle signs of HE are observed in approximately 60%1 and overt HE (OHE) in about 30-45% of patients with cirrhosis.2 After a first OHE episode, the 1-year cumulative probability of recurrence is 40%,3 and the 1-year and 3-year survival probabilities are 42% and 23%, respectively.4 The mortality risk associated with HE is higher than that associated with other major hepatic decompensation events.5 HE can adversely affect patients quality of life (QoL) and cognitive function.6 ,7 Furthermore, because OHE requires hospital management, it places a considerable burden on healthcare resources.8. Treatment for HE aims to resolve OHE episodes and prevent recurrences.9 Rifaximin-α (TARGAXAN, Norgine) is a minimally absorbed, oral antibiotic which has been shown, in clinical trials, to reduce the risk of OHE episodes, HE-related hospitalisations and improve ...
Research by a UConn neurobiologist has demonstrated that a developmental brain disorder that causes a predisposition to seizures can be reversed.. The research, by a team led by Joseph LoTurco, a professor of physiology and neurobiology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, was the cover article in the January issue of the biomedical research journal Nature Medicine.. We showed that adding back a normal gene in a brain that has already developed the wrong way can reverse a previously formed developmental malformation, LoTurco says.. The cerebral cortex is a structure within the brain that plays a key role in memory, attention, perception, thought, and language. Its layered structure is formed during development by the migration of neurons.. The researchers focused on a malformation that happens early in fetal development that is a known risk factor for epilepsy. The malformation is linked to mutations in a certain gene known as Dcx or doublecortin. LoTurco says patients who have a ...
There are four chambers in the cats heart - two top chambers (the atria) and two bottom chambers (the ventricles). There are valves that separate the top chambers from the bottom chambers. These are the atrioventricular (AV) valves. The valve on the right side of the heart is called the tricuspid valve - it has three parts. The valve on the left side of the heart is called the mitral valve - it has two parts. As the heart contracts, the blood is pumped into the lungs from the right ventricle and out to the rest of the body from the left ventricle. When the AV valves are healthy, they act to prevent the backflow of blood from the ventricles to the atria during contraction of the heart.. AV valve dysplasia describes a developmental malformation of the mitral or tricuspid valve, and may be referred to by the specific valve that is affected. Dysplasia may occur in both the mitral and tricuspid valves in the same cat, however this is not a common condition.. ...
The chicken coloboma mutation exhibits features similar to human congenital developmental malformations such as ocular coloboma, cleft-palate, dwarfism, and polydactyly. The coloboma-associated region and encoded genes were investigated using advanced genomic, genetic, and gene expression technologies. Initially, the mutation was linked to a 990 kb region encoding 11 genes; the application of the genetic and genomic tools led to a reduction of the linked region to 176 kb and the elimination of 7 genes. Furthermore, bioinformatics analyses of capture array-next generation sequence data identified genetic elements including SNPs, insertions, deletions, gaps, chromosomal rearrangements, and miRNA binding sites within the introgressed causative region relative to the reference genome sequence. Coloboma-specific variants within exons, UTRs, and splice sites were studied for their contribution to the mutant phenotype. Our compiled results suggest three genes for future studies. The three candidate genes,
Sushi domain containing protein 4 (SUSD4) is a newly discovered, but poorly characterized transmembrane protein. The structure of SUSD4 shows a high degree of homology among species, including 91% identity between mouse and man. SUSD4 is broadly expressed in human and mouse tissues including pancreatic islets. Therefore, in this study, we investigate the possible role of SUSD4 in the major function of pancreatic islets, which is insulin secretion. We found that SUSD4 KO mice displayed significantly impaired blood glucose clearance, which was aggravated with age and by a high fat diet. This defect was not due to increased insulin resistance of SUSD4 KO mice. Isolated islets from SUSD4 KO mice secreted less insulin upon stimulation with glucose and high KCl. No developmental malformation or morphological defect of pancreas or islets in SUSD4 KO mice was detected via Optical Projection Tomography (OPT), which allows the three-dimensional imaging of the spatial and quantitative distribution of the ...

The curve for peak hospital resource use in the Commonwealth of Virginia has shifted again. The estimated peak for resource use in Virginia is April 27. That is 13 days away. Exercise Social Distancing to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in our community. Flattening the curve is the best way to help ensure we will have the beds, ventilators, masks, tests, and supplies necessary on peak resource day. Now is not the time to stop social distancing!. While the peak resource day has moved further into the future, it is important to note that the curve for peak resource use is much flatter than it was a week ago! This indicates that social distancing and the precautions taken by our state and community are having a positive impact on the incidence of COVID-19 in our community! So please stay home.. As a community, we have taken many necessary steps to create social distancing---schools are closed, non-essential services are closed and Governor Northam has issued a Stay-at-Home Order.

The best resource I have seen in all these years is an excellent article written by Dr. Nancy Klimas, published in 2007 in Current Rheumatology Reports, that details all of the known abnormalities in ME/CFS patients immune systems and how these lead to dysfunction in the endocrine and nervous systems. The paper contains dozens and dozens of references to scientific research studies that document these abnormalities. Although much of the article is beyond my understanding, it is an excellent paper to print and hand out to doctors. I especially like to give this article to doctors who dont understand ME/CFS or dont believe it is real because it provides lots and lots of hard scientific facts on the physiological basis of ME/CFS. I think this one article alone can change the minds of skeptical medical professionals! You can look at an abstract of the article online or download a pdf file of the entire article (its 6 pages long ...

Introduction: Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of stridor in newborn constituting 50%-75% of all airway anomalies. It is graded as mild, moderate, and severe on the basis of presenting features. It has been shown that 12%-64% of laryngomalacia present with other associated airway anomalies. Here, we have tried to find out the incidence of associated anomalies with laryngomalacia and their impact on the patients management and prognosis. Materials and Methods: We reviewed patients with laryngomalacia visiting laryngology clinic from January 2014 to January 2019. The incidence and type of associated anomalies; their impact on management protocol and hospital stay; and their association with mild, moderate, and severe grades of laryngomalacia were evaluated. Results: A total of 63 patients were included in the study. Most of the patients presented with severe laryngomalacia (34/63 [53.9%]). Out of them, associated anomalies were present in 23/63 (36%) patients, more common in severe ...
Gastric duplication cyst (GDC) lined by pseudostratified columnar ciliated epithelium (PCCE) is an uncommon lesion stemming from a foregut developmental malformation.Its clinical and radiological presentation is usually nonspecific.In this study,we reported a 76-year-old man who presented with an incidentally found perigastric mass.An exploratory laparotomy revealed a non-communicating cyst below the gastroesophageal junction,measuring 4 cm×4 cm in size.Microscopically,the gastric cyst was lined merely by PCCE.Although rare,GDC lined by PCCE should be included in the differential diagnosis of gastric wall masses.Surgical intervention is warranted in patients who have clinical symptoms,or who are aged more than 50 years.
I am a Pediatric Dentist based at BCCH department of dentistry. I am also the director of the graduate program in Pediatric Dentistry which trains specialists. My research is in the area of developmental malformations that affect the face and teeth. I am particularly focused on the causes of cleft lip with or without cleft palate which affects 1 in 700 babies. Facial clefting is one of the most common birth defects and in the majority of cases, the clefts occur in otherwise healthy babies. Therefore, the causes are complex and difficult to attribute to genetic mutations.
My home, the Point Reyes National Seashore, recently announced plans to control invasive weeds in the park through the use of broad spectrum herbicides, specifically Roundup. They claim that this is the most environmentally appropriate and cost-effective option to restore endangered plants and wildlife.. Roundup, developed by Monsanto, is classified as a pesticide. Heavily used by consumers and industrial agriculture, it is the number one selling weed killer worldwide. For decades Monsanto has insisted that their product is safe, but Roundup has been linked to a host of health problems, including kidney disease, obesity, depression, ADHD, autism, Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, cancer, infertility, celiacs disease, gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, and developmental malformations.. The key ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate. Glyphosate is an antibiotic, destroying gut bacteria and weakening the bodys immune system. It is an endocrine disruptor. It interrupts the bodys ability ...
A hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) is a rare developmental malformation associated with seizures of varying semiology, including Gelastic seizures [1, 2, 3, 4]. The hamartoma is typically located on the ventral portion of the hypothalamus near the mammillary bodies [5]. The presence of a HH is linked with cognitive decline and behavioral issues, as well as the early onset of puberty [1, 5, 6]. Roughly half of all patients with HH have either focal or general cognitive deficits of varying severity (with some ultimately declining to the point of intellectual disability), and around one-third have behavioral difficulties including ADHD, violent outbursts, conduct disorder, and co-morbid psychiatric conditions [5, 7, 8]. The cognitive decline and behavioral disturbances observed in patients with HH are linked with both the size and location of the hamartoma, as well as seizure frequency [5]. As for treatment options, anti-epileptic drugs have poor efficacy in this population and a surgical approach (e.g. ...

Overview: Immunopathogenesis of sepsis, innate immunity Research Interests. We demonstrated that ß2 microglobulin knockout mice that are depleted of natural killer (NK) cells by treatment with anti-asialoGM1 exhibit decreased systemic inflammation, less metabolic acidosis, reduced hypothermia, better hemodynamic function and improved survival compared to control mice following cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). ß2MKO/aAsGM1 mice have multiple immunological defects including an absence of CD8+ T, natural killer (NK) and natural killer T (NKT) cells as well as deficient expression of the class I major histocompatability complex (MHC-I) and CD1 molecules. Our recent ?ndings strongly support the contention that depletion of CD8+ T and NK cells are the primary factors providing protection from CLP-induced injury in ß2MKO/aAsGM1 mice. Most recently, we have focused on the contributions of NK cells to the pathogenesis of septic shock caused by cecal ligation and puncture. Our recent studies ...

Severity of illness (SOI) is defined as the extent of organ system derangement or physiologic decompensation for a patient. It gives a medical classification into minor, moderate, major, and extreme. The SOI class is meant to provide a basis for evaluating hospital resource use or to establish patient care guidelines. Patients are assigned their SOI based on their specific diagnoses and procedures performed during their medical encounter, which is generally an inpatient hospital stay. Patients with higher SOI (e.g. major or extreme) are more likely to consume greater healthcare resources and stay longer in hospitals than patients with lower SOI in the same diagnosis-related group (DRG). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services considered the 3M APR-DRG and SOI system as a potential evolution to the DRG system in 2006, but received such negative feedback from the industry that in March 2007 decided to adopt another internally developed system evolved from the DRG.[1] SOI is still commonly ...

Neogenesis, the differentiation of islet beta cells from progenitor cells present in the pancreas, can continue into postnatal life, and has been reported to occur in several animal models. Recent studies have also demonstrated neogenesis of endocrine cells in vitro from ductal structures or from islet themselves derived from adult human and animals, suggest new possibilities for generating new beta cells in culture. Such strategies might provide models to study the regulation of islet differentiation as well as providing new sources of beta cells for transplantation, but the nature of endocrine progenitors identity and the signals that regulate neogenic activity need to be elucidated. The research focus in my laboratory are: (i) the molecular events controlling pre- and postnatal beta-cell development and maturation, and (ii) the characterization of optimal culture environments for inducing progenitors to differentiate into insulin-producing islet cells, maintaining islet architecture and ...
If the tail of a salamander is amputated then, amazingly, it completely regenerates. But how is a functional central nervous system reconstituted? On p. 2083, Tanaka and colleagues identify the neuronal stem cell population that repopulates the regenerating tail of the urodele amphibian, the axolotl. Using cell fate mapping and transplantation techniques, they show that a 500 μm region of the mature spinal cord that abuts the amputated plane generates the neuronal progenitors required for regeneration. They map the progeny of these precursors as the regenerating spinal cord extends. Most progeny remain close to the dorsoventral (D/V) location of the parent cell, but some migrate to occupy multiple D/V positions, thus acquiring different expression profiles and fates. The most distally localised cells in the regenerating tail are molecularly distinct from those in more proximal regions, perhaps indicating that, in this zone, progenitor identity is destabilised or altered. Surprisingly, ventral ...
