This issue of the Seminar Series is devoted to reviewing the state-of-the-art for treatment of non-metabolic genetic disorders. We begin with a primer on the design of studies in rare diseases. We then review a broad spectrum of disorders to reflect many different genetic mechanisms, including disorders stemming from a chromosomal basis as well as those due to single gene aberrations; those demonstrating principles of imprinting and mosaicism; and single organ as well as multisystem disorders. In doing so, a wide variety of treatment approaches are explained in this issue, including cell therapy, chromosome therapy, gene therapy, strategies for gene regulation with exon skipping and anti-sense oligonucleotides, stem cell modification and reintroduction, and use of genetic editing tools...

The majority of medical students and medical healthcare providers do not feel comfortable when addressing sexual problems. It was suggested that more courses in sexual health are needed at medical schools to overcome this shortcoming. To assess medical students' interest in and attitude about sexual health education at medical schools in Germany, a 13-item online questionnaire was developed. The link to the questionnaire was distributed at all medical schools in Germany. In total, 3264 medical students (69...

To date, there are few published decision support tools, also known as decision aids, to guide patients in making ongoing choices for symptom management and quality of life. This protocol is to develop and validate decision support tools for patients and families to use in conjunction with health professionals in MND multidisciplinary care...

Rapid growing cells like tumor cells need a vast amount of energy to match their high metabolic demand. Guanine triphosphate (GTP) is one of major cellular metabolites and served as a building block for RNA and DNA as well as an energy source to drive cellular activities such as intracellular trafficking, the cell migration and translation. However, how cancer cells regulate GTP energy levels to adapt for their high demand remain largely unknown yet. In addition, how cells detect GTP levels remains unknown...
