Intronic CRISPR Repair in a Preclinical Model of Noonan Syndrome-Associated Cardiomyopathy.

Conclusions: Our study revealed the human cardiac pathogenesis in patient-specific iPSC-CMs from NS patients carrying biallelic variants in LZTR1 and identified a unique disease-specific proteome signature. In addition, we identified the intronic CRISPR repair as a personalized and in our view clinically translatable therapeutic strategy to treat NS-associated HCM.

Today's open access paper outlines an investigation into how the aging of hematopoietic stem cell populations in bone marrow, responsible for producing blood and immune cells, can contribute to age-related dysfunction in the brain. The authors find that detrimental effects are mediated by circulating levels of CyPA, a signaling factor that is a part of the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), an inflammatory mix of signal molecules produced by senescent cells. The focus here is on direct inhibition of CyPA as an approach to therapy, but senolytic treatments to clear senescent cells may be the more useful appro...

Credit: Unsplash / Lynda Hinton By Kaveh Zahedi and Van NguyenBANGKOK, Thailand, Aug 4 2020 (IPS) After decades of impressive growth, for the first time, Southeast Asia is experiencing a drop in measured human development. The economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic will likely take months to reveal itself and years to put right. Yet, a legacy of mobilizing under constraints is leading Southeast Asia’s pandemic response. During the first two months of COVID-19 lockdown, the once bustling streets of Bangkok were unusually quiet. In the alley nested between two high-end shopping malls in downtown Bangkok, an elder...

This article is adapted from Jessica Helfand’s book “Face,” an elaborately illustrated A to Z of the face, from historical mugshots to Instagram posts. Hardly the first to postulate on the graphic evidence of the grimace, Darwin hoped to introduce a system by which facial expressions might be properly evaluated. He shared with many of his generation a predisposition toward history: simply put, the idea that certain facial traits might have a basis in evolution. Empirically, the idea itself is not unreasonable. We are, after all, genetically predisposed to share traits with those in our familial line, occa...

Conclusions: CMS may misvalue payment and wRVU rates of hospital-based hand procedures due to inaccurate operative time estimates. By identifying which procedures are misvalued in terms of payment and wRVU per operative time, providers and payors may be able to address these imbalances and maximize appropriate care delivery incentives.Level of Evidence: III.

Conclusion: Sarcopenia is an independent risk factor for fracture nonunion following operative fixation of open tibia or ankle fracture, but is not predictive of surgical site infection. Gustilo Anderson classification is strongly associated with SSI risk. Psoas index is a straightforward and objective method of identifying sarcopenia in patients with open fractures. Diagnosing sarcopenia in these individuals can inform medical decision making and patient counseling regarding risk for nonunion. Further work is needed to identify effective interventions to improve outcomes in these patients.Level of Evidence: III. PMID:...
