Idaho Must Allow Gender Changes on Birth Certificates, Judge Rules

(BOISE, Idaho) — A federal judge says Idaho can’t bar transgender people from changing the sex listed on their birth certificates.In a ruling issued Monday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale said the rules by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, served no rational government purpose and put transgender people at risk by forcing them to disclose their status when they present identification documents. “A rule providing an avenue to obtain a birth certificate with a listed sex that aligns with an individual’s gender identity promotes the health, well-being, and safety of transgender people without impacting the rights of others,” Dale wrote. Dale gave Idaho until April 6 to begin considering applications to change the sex listed on birth certificates under new, constitutionally sound rules. The ruling also says reissued birth certificates can’t include a record of the gender having been changed. Most states already allow such changes. But Idaho was one of four — including Kansas, Ohio and Tennessee — that prohibited transgender people from changing their birth certificates to reflect their gender identity. The ruling was a response to a lawsuit brought by two transgender women last year who said they faced hostility and harassment at places like grocery stores and government offices because they had to present identification that did not reflect their gender iden...

This study aimed to investigate the combined effect of oral citicoline and DHA treatment on improvement of cognitive deficits following cerebral ischemia using a 20-min bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO) mouse model. BCCAO ischemic mice were treated for a total of 11 days with a combination of citicoline (40 mg/kg body weight/day) and DHA (300 mg/kg body weight/day) or each alone. Combined citicoline and DHA synergistically and significantly improved learning and memory ability of ischemic mice compared with either alone. Further, citicoline and DHA treatment significantly prevented neuronal cell death, and ...

ConclusionInfection by the weakly aggressive I. robusta led to the upregulation of ginsenoside production and biosynthesis, probably because only a low level of ROS was induced. In contrast, the more aggressive I. mors-panacis suppressed ginsenoside biosynthesis, probably because of higher ROS levels and subsequent induction of programmed cell death pathways. Furthermore, I. mors-panacis may have increased its virulence by resisting the cytotoxicity of ROS.

Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC) is a rare, poorly differentiated and aggressive malignancy of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses first reported by Frierson et al. in 1986 with less than 300 known cases reported since then. Due to the rarity and aggressive nature of the disease, there is a lack of consensus regarding optimal management in these patients. Treatment decisions have mostly been guided by a small number of cases series and can vary widely between institutions. In this unique case presentation, we review a case of sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma in a young Hispanic male reviewing the literatu...
