Developing the Regulatory Utility of the Exposome: Mapping Exposures for Risk Assessment through Lifestage Exposome Snapshots (LEnS)

Conclusions: The LEnS concept is a practical refinement to the exposome that accounts for total exposures during particular windows of susceptibility in target organ systems. Application of the LEnS framework in risk assessment and regulation will improve protection of children’s health by enhancing protection of sensitive developing organ systems that are critical for lifelong health and well-being.

Notch signaling is a highly conserved intercellular pathway with tightly regulated and pleiotropic roles in normal tissue development and homeostasis. Dysregulated Notch signaling has also been implicated in human disease, including multiple forms of cancer, and represents an emerging therapeutic target. Successful development of such therapeutics requires a detailed understanding of potential on-target toxicities. Here, we identify autosomal dominant mutations of the canonical Notch ligand Jagged1 (or JAG1) as a cause of peripheral nerve disease in 2 unrelated families with the hereditary axonal neuropathy Charcot-Marie-T...

Some epileptic spasms are classified into focal-onset seizures. However, the cortical network underlying this kind of spasm seizure is not yet clear. Four patients with epileptic spasms who underwent intracranial electrode implantation and focal resection surgery were studied. All the patients had good outcomes, and three of them with intellectual disability showed improved intelligence after surgery. The power spectra characteristics of electrocorticography and the dynamic functional network changes of epileptic spasms were investigated. Electrocorticography power in the resected zone peaked 0.5 seconds before the clinica...
