BACKGROUND: Many of the world's population have hearing loss in one ear; current statistics indicate that up to 10% of the population may be affected. Although the detrimental impact of bilateral hearing loss, hearing aids, and cochlear implants upon music appreciation is well recognized, studies on the influence of single-sided deafness (SSD) are sparse. PURPOSE: We sought to investigate whether a single-sided hearing loss can cause problems with music appreciation, despite normal hearing in the other ear...

OBJECTIVES: Usher syndrome type IIa (USH2a) is characterized by congenital moderate to severe hearing impairment and retinitis pigmentosa. Hearing rehabilitation starts in early childhood with the application of hearing aids. In some patients with USH2a, severe progression of hearing impairment leads to insufficient speech intelligibility with hearing aids and issues with adequate communication and safety. Cochlear implantation (CI) is the next step in rehabilitation of such patients...

BACKGROUND: The ongoing mobilization of mammalian transposable elements (TEs) contributes to natural genetic variation. To survey the epigenetic control and expression of reporter genes inserted by L1 retrotransposition in diverse cellular and genomic contexts, we engineered highly sensitive, real-time L1 retrotransposon reporter constructs. RESULTS: Here we describe different patterns of expression and epigenetic controls of newly inserted sequences retrotransposed by L1 in various somatic cells and tissues including cultured human cancer cells, mouse embryonic stem cells, and tissues of pseudofounder transgenic mice and their progeny...

H Grundei, A Timmermann
INTRODUCTION: Transcutaneous, bone anchored prostheses have proved to be an alternative for amputees. In addition to the safe osseointegration of the implant, the correct prosthetic alignment is also important. Therefore, the interaction between prosthesis components and the prosthesis wearer is significant and the role of the certified prosthetist should not be underestimated. AIM: The aim of treatment is the best possible compensation of disability after limb loss with increase of physical abilities and comfort of the prosthesis wearer by means of bone anchored prosthesis...
