The objective of this report is to compare the characteristics of symptoms and differences in the therapeutic responses of them, who had the same mutation. In addition, we aimed to examine the usefulness of cytokine measurement for diagnosis or determination of treatment effect of CAPS. A 5-year-old Japanese boy (proband) came to our hospital because of short stature, reached the diagnosis of Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS) due to a mutation inNLRP3 gene, which had not been reported so far (p.G328E, c.G983A). His mother and grandmother harbored the same mutation ofNLRP3. We measured serum concentrations of cytokines in the pro...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2018Source: Journal of Theoretical BiologyAuthor(s): Peter S. Kim, John S. McQueen, Kristen HawkesAbstractGreat apes, the other living members of our hominid family, become decrepit before the age of forty and rarely outlive their fertile years. In contrast, women – even in high mortality hunter-gatherer populations – usually remain healthy and productive well beyond menopause. The grandmother hypothesis aims to account for the evolution of this distinctive feature of human life history. Our previous mathematical simulations of that hypothesis fixed the end of femal...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPatients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a greatly increased fracture risk compared with the general population. Gonadal hormones have an important influence on bone mineral density (BMD) and fracture risk, and hormone therapies can significantly improve these outcomes. Gonadal dysfunction is a frequent finding in patients with CKD; yet, little is known about the impact of gonadal hormones in the pathogenesis and treatment of bone health in patients with CKD. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to examine the effects of gonadal hormones and hormone therapies on bone outcomes in me...

In this study, we investigated the pathogenic mechanism of deafness-associated 7505A > G variant in the mitochondrial tRNASer(UCN). The m.7505A > G variant affected the highly conserved adenine at position 11 (A11), disrupted the highly conserved A11-U24 base-pairing of DHU stem of tRNASer(UCN) and introduced a tertiary base pairing (G11-C56) with the C56 in the TΨC loop. We therefore hypothesized that the m.7505A > G variant altered both structure and function of tRNASer(UCN). We demonstrated that the m.7505A > G variant perturbed the conformation and stability of tRNASer(UCN), as indicated...

ConclusionCompared with women without adenomyosis, those with histopathologically proven adenomyosis were less likely to report persistent pain following hysterectomy. Retention of the cervix does not appear to increase the risk of symptom persistence or postprocedure patient satisfaction.

(The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)) Only in science fiction novels can scientists predict people's lifespans. However, researchers have advanced the understanding of those risk factors that adversely affect mortality rates. A new study concludes that women who experienced early menopause lived shorter lives and spent fewer years without diabetes than women who experienced normal or late menopause. Study results are published online in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).
