Hey, I was just wondering if theres a list somewhere with high yield (as well as some of the middle/lower yield) conditions to know for each system e.g. immuno --> stuff like Digeorge Syndrome etc . I know some med schools give out lists of conditions students have to know for their rotations but i was wondering if theres something like this available (for free or paid). Any help is really appreciated!!! (I know First Aid has conditions in there too but I'd like a more extensive list if... Medical Conditions List

Conclusions In the last decade, several efforts have been made to shed light into the molecular mechanisms driving the inflammatory response, in all its facets. miRNAs have been demonstrated to be pivotal players actively participating in the modulation of the early phase as well as the resolution of inflammation. Recent findings on their involvement in chronic inflammatory conditions, sepsis, and tumors strongly encourage the development of new miRNA-based therapeutic strategies. Author Contributions All authors listed have made a substantial, direct and intellectual contribution to the work, and approved it for public...

NiendamAbstractBullying is an adverse childhood experience that is more common among youth with special needs and is associated with increased psychopathology throughout the lifespan. Individuals with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q) represent one group of special needs youth who are at increased risk for bullying due to co-occurring genetically-mediated developmental, physical, and learning difficulties. Furthermore, individuals with 22q are at increased risk f...

Discussion In this section, we discuss the mechanisms responsible for lymphomagenesis in the various inborn errors of immunity and provide an overview of the treatment. Defects in Immune Responses That Predispose to Lymphomagenesis in PIDDs The complex immune mechanisms and their interplay that predisposes to neoplastic transformation of B or T cells and development of lymphomas in PIDD patients has not been fully elucidated. However, it is expected that the etiology in most cases is multifactorial and related to a dynamic regulation of immune response and environmental triggers (Figure 3). An underlying intrinsic susce...

In addition to pronounced intellectual disability, seizures, and delayed growth, WHS presents with a characteristic facial dysmorphism and varying prevalence of microcephaly, micrognathia, cartilage malformation in the ear and nose, and facial asymmetr...

This study assessed whether neurocognition, functional capacity and metacognitive ability in FEP predicted functional outcome three years later. Methods: Eighty individuals with First Episode Psychosis were re-contacted after an average 3 years (range: 26–45 month follow-up) from baseline. Twenty-six participants (33%) completed completed measures of neurocognition, metacognition, functional capacity, functional outcome (hours spent in structured activity per week) and psychopathology at baseline and at follow-up. Results: Individual regression analyses demonstrated neurocognition, functional capacity, and metacogn...
