INTRODUCTION: Non-severe hemophilia (factor VIII concentration (FVIII:C) 2-40 IU/dL) is characterized by a milder bleeding phenotype than severe hemophilia A. However, some patients with non-severe hemophilia A suffer from severe bleeding complications that may result in death. Data on bleeding-related causes of death, such as fatal intracranial bleeding in non-severe patients are scarce. Such data may provide new insight in areas of care that can be improved. AIMS: To describe mortality rates, risk factors and co-morbidities associated with fatal intracranial bleeding in non-severe hemophilia A patients...

A faunistic study of the tribe Brachinini from northern Pakistan was carried out including extensive fieldwork collections and specimens housed in the Insect Repository, Pakistan Museum of Natural History, Islamabad and the National Insect Museum, National Agricultural Research Centre, Islamabad. Ten species belonging to three genera were identified from the study area, including four new records for Pakistan, Brachinus (Brachinus) ejaculans Fischer Von Waldheim, 1828, Brachinus (Neobrachinus) pallidipes Reitter, 1919, Pheropsophus (Stenaptinus) consularis (Schmidt-Goebel, 1846) and Pheropsophus (Stenaptinus) lineifrons Chaudoir, 1850...

A new species of the subgenus Chlaeniellus Reitter, 1908 (Coleoptera: Carabidae), namely Chlaenius (Chlaeniellus) kirschenhoferi sp. n., is described and illustrated from northeast Pakistan. Chlaenius (Chlaeniellus) rapyllii Morvan (1975), is confirmed as a valid species and it is proposed that Chlaenius (Lithochlaenius) asara Kirschenhofer, 2014 is a synonym of Chlaenius (Chlaeniellus) flavipes Menetries, 1832.

During recent expeditions in North and Southwest Iran, 10 species of Kateretidae and Nitidulidae (Coleoptera) were found. One species of Kateretidae, Brachyleptus bicoloratus Reitter, 1896, and three nitidulid species, Afrogethes schilskyi (Reitter, 1897), Stachygethes khnzoriani (Kirejtshuk, 1979), and S. nigerrimus (Rosenhauer, 1856) are recorded for the first time for the Iranian fauna (the latter is also a new record for Asia).

Protein splicing is a post-translational reaction facilitated by an intein, or intervening protein, which involves the removal of the intein and the ligation of the flanking polypeptides, or exteins. A DNA polymerase II intein from Pyrococcus abyssi (Pab PolII intein) can promote protein splicing in vitro on incubation at high temperature. Mutation of active site residues Cys1, Gln185, and Cys+1 to Ala results in an inactive intein precursor, which cannot promote the steps of splicing, including cleavage of the peptide bond linking the N-extein and intein (N-terminal cleavage)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare breech outcomes when mothers delivering vaginally are upright, on their back, or planning cesareans. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was undertaken of all women who presented for singleton breech delivery at a center in Frankfurt, Germany, between January 2004 and June 2011. RESULTS: Of 750 women with term breech delivery, 315 (42.0%) planned and received a cesarean. Of 269 successful vaginal deliveries of neonates, 229 in the upright position were compared with 40 in the dorsal position...

The Australian ciid fauna is revised based on 75 described species (56 of them new) and three undescribed species, placed in 22 genera (nine of them new and nine newly recorded from Australia). The revision is considered preliminary, since about 50 other undescribed Australian species have been seen (usually as uniques or in short series), and it is likely that more will be found with increased intensive collecting. One additional New Caledonian species is also described, and one Cis species is considered to be based on a mislabelled Hawaiian specimen...

Motuotrichius yangi, new genus, new species is described from Motuo, southeastern Tibet. Motuotrichius seems to have a mixture of characters observed in the genera Epitrichius Tagawa, 1941, Indotrichius Krikken, 2009, Lasiotrichius Reitter, 1899, and Trichius Fabricius, 1775, but is separable from all the known Eurasian genera of Trichiina by the presence of a tooth on the inner side of the mesotibia in both sexes. The habitus, external characters, and male genitalia of Motuotrichius yangi are illustrated. The following new combinations are given: Gnorimotrichius albomaculatus (Moser, 1902), Gnorimotrichius signatus (Chûjô, 1940), Gnorimotrichius trilineatus (Ma, 1992), and Gnorimotrichius tronqueti (Antoine, 2002)...

BACKGROUND: Molecular diagnostics in the genetic myopathies often requires testing of the largest and most complex transcript units in the human genome (DMD, TTN, NEB). Iteratively targeting single genes for sequencing has traditionally entailed high costs and long turnaround times. Exome sequencing has begun to supplant single targeted genes, but there are concerns regarding coverage and needed depth of the very large and complex genes that frequently cause myopathies. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficiency of next-generation sequencing technologies to provide molecular diagnostics for patients with previously undiagnosed myopathies...
