Disease burden of varicella versus other vaccine-preventable diseases before introduction of vaccination into the national immunisation programme in the Netherlands.

ConclusionsWhen considering the introduction of a new vaccine in the NIP, BoD is usually estimated in isolation. The current approach assesses BoD in relation to other vaccine-preventable diseases' BoD, which may help national advisory committees on immunisation and policymakers to set vaccination priorities.

ConclusionsLanguage delays are highly prevalent in HR-sibs and their representation resembles the language profile of children with ASD. Evaluation of language at the level of phonology, grammar, semantics and pragmatics will detect considerably more children experiencing delayed language than holistic approaches.

Authors: Videlefsky AS, Reznik JM, Nodvin JT, Heiman HJ Abstract Adults with developmental disabilities are a growing population that experiences significant health disparities due to unmet health care and social needs. Few standardized health care guidelines are available or broadly accepted as best practices for this population. The Adult Disability Medical Healthcare (ADMH) is a community-based clinic that provides a unique multidisciplinary team-based approach to addressing the social and health care needs of adults with developmental disabilities within the framework of a Patient Centered Medical Home model. A...

ConclusionsThis is the first work describing a cohort of Brazilian individuals with PMS. Our results confirm the impact of 22q13 deletions on ASD and several comorbidities, such as hypotonia. The estimation of a minimal deletion size for developing lymphedema and renal problem can assist prediction of prognosis in PMS individuals, particularly those diagnosed in early infancy. We also identified one atypical individual carryingSHANK3 deletion, suggesting that resilience to such mutations occurs. This case expands the clinical spectrum of variability in PMS and opens perspectives to identify protective mechanisms that can m...

AbstractCryptococcal meningitis is a severe subacute fungal meningoencephalitis. Intracerebroventricular (ICV) injection of antifungal medication and aspiration of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through Ommaya reservoir were reported to be useful cryptococcal meningitis treatment method. We want to evaluate the role of Ommaya reservoir in the treatment of refractory cryptococcal meningitis. We retrospectively analyzed clinical records and data of 15 refractory cryptococcal meningitis patients who were treated with Ommaya reservoir in Sir Run Run Shaw hospital from June 2013 to June 2017. Fifteen patients who underwent Ommaya re...

AbstractA patient diagnosed with developmental delay, intellectual disability, and autistic and obsessive-compulsive symptoms was found to have a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst (PFAC) compressing the cerebellum. The patient was referred to our Ataxia Unit for consideration of surgical drainage of the cyst to improve his clinical constellation. This scenario led to an in-depth analysis including a literature review, functional resting-state MRI analysis of our patient compared to a group of controls, and genetic testing. While it is reasonable to consider that there may be a causal relationship between PFAC and neurodevelop...

AbstractAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common neuropsychiatric condition in childhood and adolescence. Psychoeducation has been recommended by different guidelines as an initial treatment for ADHD, however the effects of the intervention for reducing symptoms and improving other outcomes still need to be established. This systematic review investigated the magnitude of impact that psychoeducation interventions have on various outcomes in children with ADHD. A systematic review of articles published between 1990 and 2018 was conducted of treatment outcome studies that investigated the effects of...

A promising HIV vaccine developed at Oregon Health&Science University is getting closer to human clinical trials. Dr. Louis Picker, a professor at OHSU’s Vaccine&Gene Therapy Institute, said his lab has tested a weakened version of the vaccine in monkeys that provides similar protection to the original, stronger version. Developing a weaker, or “live-attenuated,” version is important to ensure safety for people with weakened immune systems, Picker said. The new version eliminated SIV,…

We present a new database of Dutch word recognition times for a total of 54 thousand words, called the Dutch Crowdsourcing Project. The data were collected with an internet vocabulary test. The database is limited to native Dutch speakers. Participants were asked to indicate which words they knew. Their response times were registered, even though the participants were not asked to respond as fast as possible. Still, the response times correlate around .7 with the response times of the Dutch Lexicon Projects for shared words. Also results of virtual experiments indicate that the new response times are a valid addition to th...
