In this study, we integrated data from the literature and related cellular receptors to develop high-resolution mode ls of full-length LDLR at extracellular conditions and use them to predict which VUS alter LDL binding. We believe that the functional effects of LDLR variants can be resolved using a combination of structural bioinformatics and functional assays, leading to a better correlation with clinical presen tation. We have completed modeling of LDLR in two major physiologic conditions, generating detailed hypotheses for how each of the 1007 reported protein variants may affect function.Key messages• Hundreds of...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAtrial arrhythmias cause significant morbidity in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). Catheter ablation remains one of the most effective treatment modalities for atrial arrhythmias. However, patients with congenital heart disease present unique challenges for catheter ablation.Recent FindingsRecent expert consensus guidelines inform physicians about treating arrhythmias in patients with CHD. These guidelines outline appropriate selection criteria for ablation and highlight treatment alternatives. The authors also suggest electrophysiology laboratory and physician standards for performing...

Recently it was suggested to me that even though I’m an occupational therapist, I might “diagnose”. Not so much diagnose disease, but “determine if a patient is depressed, anxious, catastrophising, fear avoidant etc?” The author goes on to say “isn’t that diagnosis too?” The comment was made in the context of a lengthy Twitter discussion about so-called “non-specific” low back pain. Over the course of I think about five weeks now, a large number of highly educated, erudite and passionate clinicians have argued the toss about whether it’s possible to identify...

This study showed that potential vicious cycles underlying ARDs are quite diverse and unique, triggered by diverse and unique factors that do not usually progress with age, thus casting doubts on the possibility of discovering the single molecular cause of aging and developing the single anti-aging pill. Rather, each disease appears to require an individual approach. However, it still cannot be excluded that some or all of these cycles are triggered by fundamental processes of aging, such as chronic inflammation or accumulation of senescent cells. Nevertheless, experimental data showing clear cause and effect relationships...
