AbstractCohen syndrome (CS) is an autosomal recessive congenital disorder, characterized by hypotonia, intellectual disability, developmental delay, microcephaly, progressive retinopathy, neutropenia, truncal obesity, joint laxity, characteristic facial, ophthalmic, oral and appendage abnormalities, and an over friendly behavior. It has been linked to mutations in theVPS13B gene. The main purpose of this study was to determine the genetic cause of CS in an Indian family. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was used to identify the genetic cause of CS in the family. The WES analysis identified a homozygous novel duplication mutati...

Freud first identified the potential for gains from bein...

In conclusion, sitting for prolonged periods of time without interruption is unfavorably associated with DBP and HDL cholesterol. Exercise Slows Inappropriate Growth of Blood Vessels in a Mouse Model of Macular Degeneration https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/07/exercise-slows-inappropriate-growth-of-blood-vessels-in-a-mouse-model-of-macular-degeneration/ Excessive growth of blood vessels beneath the retina is a proximate cause of blindness in conditions such as macular degeneration. Researchers here provide evidence for physical activity to be influential in the pace at which this process of tissue...

Authors: Gu Y, Yao Q, Xu Y, Zhang H, Wei P, Wang L Abstract BACKGROUND This was a prospective comparative study of mixed reality (MR) technology assisted lumbar pedicle screws placement and traditional lumbar pedicle screws placement. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty cases of lumbar pedicle screws placement were randomly divided into 2 groups: 25 cases with MR technology in group A, and 25 cases without MR technology in group B. All patients had their scores on the Oswestry disability index (ODI) of low back pain and the visual analog scale (VAS) of the affected lower limb recorded at pre-operation. Blood loss, operative...
