Conclusions: Through simulations, we determined that among the studied environmental factors, precipitation showed the strongest correlation with the transmission dynamics of influenza. Moreover, the SIR+P+T model is the most efficient for simulating the behavioral dynamics of influenza in the area of interest. PMID: 30788178 [PubMed]

Conclusions: Mutations associated with severe systemic disease result in greater visual morbidity at an earlier age. Those with tissue mosaicism are unlikely to have visually debilitating pathology secondary to NF2. Potentially treatable sources of damage to vision, however, affect all groups and must be identified early and treated effectively to retain useful vision throughout life.

Albatineh, Reza Ghanei GheshlaghAbstractHealth literacy is one of the most important determinants of health. Limited health literacy can leads to reduced adherence to treatment, repeated hospitalizations, and increased diseases complications. Several studies on health literacy among Iranian patients with type 2 diabetes have reported different prevalences of health literacy. The present study is aimed to determ...

Alcaíno, Wendy González, Jonathan G. Canan, Rodrigo Moraga-Amaro, Jimmy Stehberg, Luis Reuss, Guillermo A. AltenbergAbstractUnder normal conditions, connexin (Cx) hemichannels have a low open probability, which can increase under pathological conditions. Since hemichannels are permeable to relatively large molecules, their exacerbated activity has been linked to cell damage. Cx46 is highly expres...

ConclusionsLateral rectus sag in children creates a type of acquired esotropia and overelevation in adduction poorly responsive to standard surgery but correctable with lateral rectus resection and equatorial myopexy that normalizes the lateral rectus path through permanent scleral fixation.

ConclusionThis report of Danish siblings with YHFS serves to expand the presentation of this new syndrome to include features in keeping with a form of microcephalic primordial dwarfism on the severe end of the clinical spectrum, and adds two novel mutations to the TELO2 mutational spectrum. Recently, compound heterozygous loss‐of‐function mutations in TELO2 were shown to underlie You‐Hoover‐Fong syndrome. Patients with mutations in TELO2 present with microcephaly and associated intellectual disability, postnatal growth retardation and dysmorphic features. Here, we describe Danish siblings with two novel mutations...

Conclusions During the past decade the incidence of severe childhood visual impairment and blindness declined in Israel. A continuous decline in consanguineous marriages among the Jewish and Arab populations in Israel may have contributed to the decrease in the rate of vision loss due to retinitis pigmentosa in children.
