ConclusionsThe developed method of analysis indicated that the longest lifetime durations of manifest disability were observed in the areas of socially-useful activities and personal and social relationships, and the proportions of patients with these disabilities rapidly increased at 200 months after diagnosis.

Lopatkina, E.A. Kizilova, S.A. Vasilyev, O.L. Serov, I.N. LebedevAbstractSkin fibroblasts from a patient with intellectual disability and ring chromosome 22 were reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to establish a clonal stem cell lines, IMGTi001-A (iTAF5-29) and IMGTi001-B (iTAF5-32). Because of ring chromosome mitotic instability these cell lines show mosaic karyotypes with 46,XX,r(22) in>83% cells, 45,XX,-22 as min...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Progress in NeurobiologyAuthor(s): Georgia Kaidonis, Anand N. Rao, Yi-Bing Ouyang, Creed M. StaryAbstractCerebral ischemia remains a major cause of death and disability worldwide, yet therapeutic options remain limited. Differences in sex and age play an important role in the final outcome in response to cerebral ischemia in both experimental and clinical studies: males have a higher risk and worse outcome than females at younger ages and this trend reverses in older ages. Although the molecular mechanisms underlying sex dimorphism are complex and are still not well ...

CONCLUSION: Prior to treatment, patients have high expectations of implant therapy. In general, these expectations are met. Most studies revealed that women have higher expectations than men. The variety of applied study designs impaired comparability of results. Thus, standardised methods for measuring expectations of implant-based therapy are eagerly needed.

ConclusionIt is the first COPCORD study in an urban native population living at high altitude in Peru. The population affected by chronic rheumatic disease preferred professional rather than traditional care; this population had access to limited medical services. Impaired functional capacity measured by HAQ was associated with advanced age.ResumenObjetivoEstimar la prevalencia de manifestaciones musculoesqueléticas y discapacidad en la población urbana habitante a gran altura de Juliaca, Puno, Perú; utilizando el cuestionario COPCORD y HAQ-DI.MétodosSe realizó un estudio transversal en m...

Though the organic pollutants DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) were banned in the U.S. and many other countries more than 30 years ago, these toxic compounds can persist in the environment for decades. According to astudy published today inAJP in Advance, maternal exposure to DDT is associated with an increased risk of autism in children, particularly autism with significant intellectual disability. There was no association between maternal exposure to PCBs and autism.While several studies have established a connection between environmental pollutants and autism, “few studies...

This report was the first to establish, beyond dispute, the presence of tuberculosis in the Americas before the arrival of Europeans. Here, we revisit the ‘Nasca Boy’ from a bioarchaeology of care perspective. Contextualising the original study’s results within what is known of contemporary lifeways, we apply the bioarchaeology of care methodology in considering the Nasca Boy’s experience of living with tuberculosis; the type of care he required and how this may have evolved over a period of deteriorating health; and what such caregiving may suggest both about social organisation within his communit...
