The aim of the present study was to investigate the changes of retinal microvascular network in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). A total of fifteen patients (right eye) with CSCR and 15 normal controls (right eye) were recruited. We used optical coherence tomography angiography to scan 6x6 mm macular retinal blood flow images with the application of a series of customized image segmentation processing program software to obtain microvascular and macrovascular density, and compared the superficial microvascular (SMIR), superficial macrovascular ring (SMAR) and the superficial total microvascular (STMI) density between CSCR patients and control group...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic effects of the Sabbagh Universal Spring 2 (SUS 2) fixed functional appliance compared to the premolar extraction method in correcting class II/1 malocclusion in patients who had passed their peak of postpubertal growth (stages 4-6 of Cervical Vertebral Maturation Index). METHODS: In all, 40 class II/1 patients were randomized to receive SUS 2 application (7 males, 13 females, age 15.75 ± 1.02 years) or maxillary premolar extraction (8 males, 12 females, age 15...

Controversy still exists about uric acid as a potential prognostic risk factor for outcomes in patients with acute myocardial infarction. We prospectively assessed, in 856 patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STMI) consecutively admitted to our Intensive Cardiac Care Unit after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) whether uric acid (UA) levels are associated with in-hospital mortality and complications. Killip classes III-IV were more frequent in the 3° UA tertile that was associated with the highest values of peak Tn I (p = 0...

Paragangliomas of the head and neck region, also known as glomus tumours, are mostly benign tumours of neuro-ectodermal origin. We mapped the familial form by linkage analysis in 6 families to chromosome region 11q22-q23, between the markers STMY and CD3D which currently span a 16-cM interval. Here, we performed detailed haplotype analysis of this region in a single Dutch multibranch 7-generation family. A region of 2 cM between the markers D11S938/D11S4122 and D11S1885 was shared between all patients of whom disease haplotypes could be reconstructed...

Paragangliomas of the head and neck are slow-growing tumors that rarely show malignant progression. Familial transmission has been described, consistent with an autosomal dominant gene that is maternally imprinted. Clinical manifestations of hereditary paraganglioma are determined by the sex of the transmitting parent. All affected individuals have inherited the disease gene from their father, expression of the phenotype is not observed in the offspring of an affected female or female gene carrier until subsequent transmittance of the gene through a male gene carrier...

Two breakpoints within chromosome 11q23 were characterized with 29 DNA probes to establish a physical map of the region. This region is notable in that it contains at least 14 functional genes which are also syntenic in the mouse (chromosome 9). Chromosome 11q23 includes these markers: STMY, CLG, NCAM, DRD2, APOA1, APOC3, APOA4, CD3E, CD3D, CD3G, PBGD, THY1, ets-1, and cbl-2. The two breakpoints, herein called "X;11" and "4;11," defined a region of approximately 8 cM containing the APO and CD3 complexes as well as the polymorphic marker D11S29...

We recently mapped the gene for ataxia-telangiectasia group A (ATA) to chromosome 11q22-23 by linkage analysis, using the genetic markers THY1 and pYNB3.12 (D11S144). The most likely order was cent-AT-S144-THY1. The present paper describes further mapping of the AT locus by means of a panel of 10 markers that span approximately 60 cM in the 11q22-23 region centered around S144 and THY1. Location scores indicate that three contiguous subsegments within the [S144-THY1] segment, as well as three contiguous segments telomeric to THY1, are each unlikely to contain the AT locus, while the more centromeric [STMY-S144] segment is most likely to contain the AT locus...

Amplification of several markers which map to chromosome 11q13 was detected by Southern blotting in transitional cell tumours of the urinary bladder. The oncogenes INT2 and HST and the BCL1 locus were co-amplified in 20/97 (20.6%) tumours and the locus-specific minisatellite probe pMS51 (D11S97) detected amplification in 17/97 (17.5%) tumours. The high frequency of heterozygosity (greater than 70%) detected by this latter probe on HaeIII-digested DNAs provided a sensitive means to measure low levels of gene amplification (2-fold) by comparing signals obtained from each allele...

Using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, and a range of different enzyme digests, we have established that both markers of each of the pairs CJ52.208/YNB3.12, NCAM/DRD2, and STMY/CJ52.75, on chromosome 11q22-23, show physical linkage on a single DNA fragment. We have also shown, using genetic linkage and haplotype analyses, that these markers lie within a region of approximately 18cM, which, it has been shown previously, is likely to contain the A-T gene. The relative positions of these marker loci, and the distance between them was determined in order to construct a detailed map which has allowed a more precise localization of the A-T gene...

Linkage of at least two complementation groups of ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) to the chromosomal region 11q23 is now well established. We provide here an 18-point map of the surrounding genomic region, derived from linkage analysis of 40 CEPH families. On the basis of this map, 111 AT families from Turkey, Israel, England, Italy, and the United States were analyzed, localizing the AT gene(s) to an 8-cM sex-averaged interval between the markers STMY and D11S132/NCAM. A new Monte Carlo method for computing approximate location scores estimates this location as being at least 10(8) times more likely than the next most likely interval, with a support interval midway between STMY and D11S132 that is either 5...

To further pinpoint the location of the genes for ataxia-telangiectasia on the long arm of chromosome 11, we performed linkage analysis and analysis of recombinants of genetic haplotypes on 14 Turkish families with ataxia-telangiectasia, 12 of which were consanguineous. These studies used more than 25 polymorphic genetic markers spanning a region of the long arm of chromosome 11 that is larger than 50 cM. Seven markers gave significant LOD scores to AT: CJ5, DRD2, CJ208, S144, CD3E, PBGD, and S147, as did haplotypes created with pairs of markers DRD2/CJ5 and S144/CJ208, giving recombination fractions (theta) of 0...

We have constructed a linkage map of eight RFLP markers located on chromosome 11q in the region of the dopamine D2 receptor gene (DRD2) recognized by probe hD2G1. Abnormalities in dopaminergic neurotransmission mediated by this receptor have been implicated in several psychiatric disorders. The map was generated using six large reference families (from 294 to 419 individuals per locus), which are largely independent of the CEPH families, primarily using the LINKMAP and ILINK programs of the LINKAGE package of Lathrop and Lalouel...
