The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health will oversee a study in 2019 to determine the feasibility of establishing the first national mesothelioma patient registry. The $100,000 feasibility study was part of the $1.2 million Congress allocated in 2019 to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention for mesothelioma research. The bulk of the funding goes toward the National Mesothelioma Virtual Bank, which is a biospecimen registry first established in 2006. It is the only federally funded program designed exclusively for the research of mesothelioma, the rare and aggressive cancer caused by asbestos expos...

CONCLUSIONS: Corticospinal tract lesions play a crucial role in motor impairment related to spastic cerebral palsy in infants with periventricular white matter injury. Fractional anisotropy in the corticospinal tract at the internal capsule level could aid in the early diagnosis of spastic cerebral palsy with high diagnostic accuracy.

ConclusionsResting state fMRI measures of sensorimotor connectivity are associated with clinical sensorimotor function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy secondary to PVI. Greater insight into understanding reorganization of brain networks following perinatal stroke may facilitate personalized rehabilitation.

CONCLUSIONS: The HDD and E-link system are usable measurement instruments for cross-sectional muscle strength measurements in children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy. It is not clear if both instruments are usable to measure changes in muscle strength within an individual, especially if a child with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy has low muscle strength. Caution in the interpretation of changes in muscle strength is therefore necessary. Implications for Rehabilitation The hand-held dynamometer and E-Link Evaluation System are reliable measurement instruments to measure muscle strength of the arm and hand in chil...
