Conclusion: The burden of disease (BD) increased by 1.6% from 1990 to 2015. The main causes were migraine, CVD, and NE. ADD and NSC doubled the DALY in this period. These diseases represent a significant cause of disability attributable to the increase in the life expectancy of our population among other factors. Priority actions should be taken to prevent and treat these causes.RESUMEN Introducci ón: Los indicadores de carga de la enfermedad evalúan el impacto que producen las enfermedades en una población. Integran la mortalidad y discapacidad en un solo indicador. Esto permite fijar prioridades para...

When I blogged last month, I thought surely that May would be an improvement over April. I was wrong. Now, with 100k deaths from COVID-19, and after several days of protests across the country in response to the death of George Floyd, I can’t possibly imagine what the summer will be like. I watched two … Continue reading "Justice &George Floyd"

Contributor : Ewelina Bukowska-OlechSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensCraniosynostosis (CS) is the premature fusion of the cranial sutures,occurring either in isolated or syndromic form. CS was described in over 180 genetic syndromes that comprise 15-30% of all CS cases. Syndromic CS usually has a monogenic inheritance and originates in most of the patients from mutations within the FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3, and TWIST1 genes. Causative alterations in other genes, or rarely copy number variations (CNVs) were also reported. In this paper, we describe a patient with Noonan-like facial dysmorphism ac...

Psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, are common conditions that arise as a result of complex and heterogeneous combinations of genetic and environmental factors. In contrast to childhood neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism and intellectual disability, there are no clinical practice guidelines for applying genetic testing in the context of these conditions. But genetic counseling and genetic testing are not synonymous, and people who live with psychiatric disorders and their family members are often interested in what psychiatric genetic counseling can offer. Furt...

Dementia affects nearly 50 million people worldwide, translating into one new case every 3 seconds. Dementia syndrome is one of the leading causes of disability among older adults, yet it remains vastly underdiagnosed. A timely diagnosis of dementia is essential to ensuring optimal care and support of individuals and their loved ones. Although there is no single test for dementia, health care providers can use a structured approach to the workup and management of new cognitive symptoms. Comprehensive MEDLINE and PubMed searches were performed to develop an unbiased, practical diagnostic approach to these symptoms.

The importance of preserving musculoskeletal health into old age is marked by the adverse outcomes sarcopenia (loss of muscle mass and function) and osteoporosis (bone loss) may confer such as an increased risk of falls, fractures, frailty, disability and premature death [1]. The role of these metabolically active tissues also extends beyond maintaining mobility and independence. For instance, skeletal muscle insulin resistance has been identified as the largest defect in type II diabetes [2], and the loss of muscle mass and strength correlates with cardiovascular disease in older adults [3].
