Small molecules that correct the folding defects and enhance surface localization of the F508del mutation in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) comprise an important therapeutic strategy for cystic fibrosis lung disease. However, compounds that rescue the F508del mutant protein to wild type (WT) levels have not been identified. In this report, we consider obstacles to obtaining robust and therapeutically relevant levels of F508del CFTR. For example, markedly diminished steady state amounts of F508del CFTR compared to WT CFTR are present in recombinant bronchial epithelial cell lines, even when much higher levels of mutant transcript are present...

RATIONALE: Transitions to outpatient care are crucial after critical illness, but the documentation practices in discharge documents after critical illness are unknown. OBJECTIVES: To characterize the rates of documentation of various features of critical illness in discharge documents of patients diagnosed with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) during their hospital stay. METHODS: We used natural language processing tools to build a keyword-based classifier that categorizes discharge documents by presence of terms from four groups of keywords related to critical illness...

AIMS: Non-uniform distribution of drug-eluting stent struts may cause uneven drug deposition associated with an adverse neointimal response and clinical events. This study assesses circumferential stent strut distribution in bare-metal (BMS) and paclitaxel-eluting (Taxus) stents post implantation and at 9-month follow-up, as well as its impact on intimal hyperplasia (IH). METHODS AND RESULTS: In the current analysis, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) substudies of the Taxus IV, V, and VI trials were combined...

Hybrid organic/lead halide perovskites are promising materials for solar cell fabrication, resulting in efficiencies up to 18%. The most commonly studied perovskites are CH3NH3PbI3 and CH3NH3PbI3-xClx where x is small. Importantly, in the latter system, the presence of chloride ion source in the starting solutions used for the perovskite deposition results in a strong increase in the overall charge diffusion length. In this work we investigate the crystallization parameters relevant to fabrication of perovskite materials based on CH3NH3PbI3 and CH3NH3PbBr3...

OBJECTIVES: Variation in care within and across geographic areas remains poorly understood. The goal of this article was to examine whether physician social networks-as defined by shared patients-are associated with rates of complications after radical prostatectomy. METHODS: In five cities, we constructed networks of physicians on the basis of their shared patients in 2004-2005 Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare data. From these networks, we identified subgroups of urologists who most frequently shared patients with one another...

We assessed whether intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) can detect evidence of coronary perforation that is not visible by coronary angiography. Approximately 15,000 consecutive percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) performed with IVUS guidance were reviewed retrospectively, pre- and post-PCI IVUS images were compared, and IVUS findings were compared with coronary angiography and in-hospital outcomes. We detected three distinct patterns that were not present pre-PCI and that were suggestive of perforation or perivascular trauma: perivascular blood speckle in 67 % (51/76), perivascular hematoma in 17 % (13/76), and new echolucent perivascular layer in 16 % (12/76)...

Most psychiatric disorders are moderately to highly heritable. The degree to which genetic variation is unique to individual disorders or shared across disorders is unclear. To examine shared genetic etiology, we use genome-wide genotype data from the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC) for cases and controls in schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We apply univariate and bivariate methods for the estimation of genetic variation within and covariation between disorders...

Histocompatibility is the basis by which multicellular organisms of the same species distinguish self from nonself. Relatively little is known about the mechanisms underlying histocompatibility reactions in lower organisms. Botryllus schlosseri is a colonial urochordate, a sister group of vertebrates, that exhibits a genetically determined natural transplantation reaction, whereby self-recognition between colonies leads to formation of parabionts with a common vasculature, whereas rejection occurs between incompatible colonies...

Botryllus schlosseri is a colonial urochordate that follows the chordate plan of development following sexual reproduction, but invokes a stem cell-mediated budding program during subsequent rounds of asexual reproduction. As urochordates are considered to be the closest living invertebrate relatives of vertebrates, they are ideal subjects for whole genome sequence analyses. Using a novel method for high-throughput sequencing of eukaryotic genomes, we sequenced and assembled 580 Mbp of the B. schlosseri genome...

BACKGROUND: Lorcaserin is a selective 5-HT2C agonist evaluated for weight management in clinical trials. Echocardiographic monitoring was conducted to test the hypothesis that selective 5-HT2C agonism would avoid valvular heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Echocardiographic and weight change data from 5249 obese and overweight patients in 3 phase 3 trials were integrated. Treatment duration with 10 mg lorcaserin twice daily or placebo was 52 weeks. The proportions of patients who developed Food and Drug Administration-defined valvulopathy (≥ mild aortic or ≥ moderate mitral regurgitation) and changes in regurgitant grade at each heart valve were evaluated...
