Newly emerged enterovirus-A71 C4 isolates may be more virulent than B5 in northern Vietnam
(Kanazawa University) Researchers from Kanazawa University have found a new sublineage of enterovirus A71 (EV-A71) C4 subgenotype with two possible recombinant strains during the 2015-16 outbreak of hand-foot-and-mouth disease in Hanoi, northern Vietnam. Further, they confirmed that the EV-A71-C4 subgenotype may be more virulent than the B5 clinically and experimentally with transgenic mouse model. This has helped elucidate the outbreak and may identify candidate viral strains for developing polyvalent vaccines. (Source: EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases)

Little who described it as “The condition of spastic rigidity of the limbs of newborn children.” The most recent definition is from Rosenbaun et al. in 2007 which states it is “a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain.

Seven lessons I ’ve learned from Rett syndrome
As a mother of a child with Rett syndrome, a disability that affects the brain’s ability to plan or coordinate motor skills, the phrase “take for granted” takes on a whole new meaning.

Trump Is Ruining My Teeth
It shouldn’t have been a shock when my tooth broke off, but of course, it was. For months, my jaw and teeth have been in a constant state of clenching and grinding.
