We report the case of an 8-year-old patient with a history of nephrotic syndrome (NS), who presented to the emergency department (ED) with right foot pain. The patient's mother described intermittent pain that woke her son from sleep and was accompanied by the foot turning purple and becoming cold to touch. Physical exam revealed capillary refill of over ten seconds in the right and less than two seconds in the left foot. Ankle-brachial indices (ABI) were 0.0 on the right and 0.96 on the left. The patient was admitted and started on therapeutic intravenous heparin...

Robotically-driven orthoses (RDO) are promising for treating gait impairment in children with hemiplegia after acquired brain injury (ABI). Despite this, existing literature on the employment of RDO in ABI is scanty, and cohorts' age spans throughout the adult age, with no specific focus on the developmental age. We aim to compare a treatment solely based on conventional physiotherapy (CP) with a program combining RDO training with CP, and to examine the effect of time following ABI on recovery. A prospective two-cohorts study was conducted in a rehabilitation hospital...

CD8+ cytolytic T lymphocytes are essential players of anti-tumor immune responses. On tumors, they recognize peptides of about 8-to-10 amino acids that generally result from the degradation of cellular proteins by the proteasome. Until a decade ago, these peptides were thought to solely correspond to linear fragments of proteins that were liberated after the hydrolysis of the peptide bonds located at their extremities. However, several examples of peptides containing two fragments originally distant in the protein sequence challenged this concept and demonstrated that proteasome could also splice peptides together by creating a new peptide bond between two distant fragments...

Ber-EP4 has been the traditional immunostain used for the detection of basaloid skin tumors. Recently, MOC-31 has shown be superior to Ber-EP4 in the detection of basosquamous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and many centers are now using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 antibodies together to detect these lesions. The objective of this study was to compare the utility of using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 immunostains in the detection of basaloid skin tumors and to better characterize the previously unknown staining properties of MOC-31 in cutaneous lesions...

Cyclodextrins nanosponges (CD-NSPs) are highly microporous crosslinked polymers with potential applications in the delivery of small and macro-molecular therapeutic agents. Despite the potent host-guest inclusion property, their inherent lack of cellular binding ability has limited applications in drug delivery. Herein, we functionalized the surface of β-cyclodextrin nanosponge (β-CD-NSP) with cholesterol, which is endogenous physiological molecules, widely distributed in all cells, and responsible for cell interactions and protein binding...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is associated with poor mobility and fatigue, but the relationship between preclinical ankle-brachial index (ABI) and early markers of fatigue and functional decline has not been defined. METHODS: 570 adults, 50 and older, from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (N = 570), with normal values of ABI (1-1.39), were classified into ABI tertiles. Perceived fatigability was assessed after a 5-min, treadmill walk (1...

Quantitative gene expression assays are increasingly used for diagnosis and research, but are often restricted to specific instrumentation. We propose a robust technical and statistical framework that enables transferring of established RT-qPCR assays across qPCR platforms without compromising analytical and clinical validity. The feasibility of our approach on MammaTyper®, an in vitro diagnostic assay which quantifies breast cancer biomarkers and dichotomizes results according to cut-off points, was tested...

Several agents are under investigation for potential neuroprotective effects including acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC). OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether low carnitine levels and mutations in the SLC22A5 gene encoding the carnitine transporter are associates with Parkinson's disease (PD) risk in the Faroe Islands where the prevalence of both PD and carnitine transporter deficiency is high...

BACKGROUND: Current primary prevention guidelines for cardiovascular disease (CVD) prioritize risk identification, risk stratification using clinical and risk scores, and risk reduction with lifestyle interventions and pharmacotherapy. Subclinical atherosclerosis is an early indicator of atherosclerotic burden and its timely recognition can slow or prevent progression to CVD. Thus, individuals with subclinical atherosclerosis are a priority for primary prevention. This study takes a practical approach to answering a challenge commonly faced by primary care practitioners: in patients with no known CVD, how can individuals likely to have subclinical atherosclerosis be easily identified using existing clinical data and/or information provided by the patient? METHODS: Using NHANES (1999-2004), 6091 men and women aged ≥40 years without any CVD comprised the primary prevention population for this study...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral artery disease (PAD), an important component of the cardiovascular triad, has been linked with obesity as one of the risk factors for its development. The risk posed by obesity however varies depending on the indices measured. METHODS: We compared the relationship of measures of central and visceral obesity (waist circumference (WC) and waist-hip ratio (WHR) versus that of general obesity (body mass index (BMI) in the development of PAD among Nigerians with hypertension and/or diabetes mellitus...
