CONCLUSION: This case highlights the rare co-occurrence of cardiac rhabdomyomas with Möbius syndrome and new segmental loss at 21q21.2 on genetic testing. Findings could indicate not a "suggestion of Möbius", but rather the syndrome itself in association with cardiac defects. PMID: 29336632 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Our data highlight pupillary parameters within a population of MFS patients under scotopic conditions. Constriction and dilation velocities were slower in the pediatric MFS patients compared to age- and gender-matched controls, and dilation velocities were slower in the adult MFS patients compared to age-matched controls. These findings, for the first time, quantitatively demonstrated differences in pupillary function in patients with MFS. PMID: 29336629 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Roelofs K, Shaikh F, Astle W, Gallie BL, Soliman SE Abstract A child with bilateral familial retinoblastoma underwent staging MRI brain and orbit which identified subtle leptomeningeal enhancement, thus prompting an MRI whole body, which revealed a retroperitoneal mass, confirmed on laparoscopic biopsy to be neuroblastoma. This is the first reported case of these two rare embryonal non-central nervous system tumors occurring concurrently. The cause of this concurrence is unknown despite their pathogenic similarities with a chance of 4 cases per 10 billion children aged 1-4 years. Incidental neuroblast...

Authors: Yang L, Zhao S, Xia P, Zheng HC Abstract REIC (Reduced Expression in Immortalized Cells) gene is down-regulated in immortalized cells, compared with the normal parental counterparts. Its encoding protein could inhibit colony formation, tumor growth, and induce apoptosis. To investigate the roles of REIC expression in lung cancer, we examined REIC expression in lung cancer cells and tissues by RT-PCR or Western blot, and observed the effects of both recombinant REIC exposure and REIC overexpression on the aggressive phenotypes of lung cancer cells. It was found that the demethylation of REIC promoter by 5-A...

Authors: Reyes-Resina I, Aguinaga D, Labandeira-García JL, Lanciego JL, Navarro G, Franco R Abstract Immunochemical detection of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in cells and tissues was a technical challenge for years. After the discovery of formation of GPCR dimers/trimers/tetramers in transfected cells, a most recent challenge has been to confirm receptor-receptor interactions in natural sources. The occurrence of dimers or higher order oligomers is important from a therapeutic point of view, mainly because their physiology/pharmacology is different from those of individual receptors. On the one hand, ...

Authors: Rahmatnejad K, Myers JS, Falls ME, Myers SR, Waisbourd M, Hark LA Abstract PURPOSE: To determine what metrics might impact satisfaction survey responses. METHODS: A 37-question survey was administered to 249 participants. Responses were correlated to demographics, clinical factors, weather conditions, and examination timing. RESULTS: Sample consists of 55.4% female and 73.9% white, and mean age was 65.1 years. Participants were assigned to: completely satisfied (77.9%) or not completely satisfied (22.1%) groups based on their rating of glaucoma specialist on a scale of 1-10, while 10 considere...

CONCLUSIONS: Our pilot study demonstrated that the postoperative CDVA was significantly correlated with OSI and corneal HOAs, but not with backward scattering in post-PK eyes, suggesting that OSI as well as corneal HOAs plays an essential role in postoperative visual performance after PK.

Authors: Stewart TM, Hunter SC, Rhodes SM Abstract The CaR-FA-X model (Williams et al., 2007), or capture and rumination (CaR), functional avoidance (FA), and impaired executive control (X), is a model of overgeneral autobiographical memory (OGM). Two mechanisms of the model, rumination and executive control, were examined in isolation and in interaction in order to investigate OGM over time. Across two time points, six months apart, a total of 149 adolescents (13-16 years) completed the minimal-instruction autobiographical memory test, a measure of executive control with both emotional and nonemotional stimuli, an...

CONCLUSION: Social support, gratitude and resilience are associated with higher satisfaction with life and fewer symptoms of depression. Targeting and building these factors may improve an officer's ability to address symptoms of depression. PMID: 29334848 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Feasibility and sustainability of the program are affected by a number of factors. Low referral rate of clinicians, limited resources of the hospital, issues related to stigma and logistic issues are barriers in implementation of these services. Administrators' and clinicians' understanding of the importance of patient and family psychoeducation seems to be crucial in sustainability of such programs in routine service delivery.
