Psychomotricity plays a very important role in children's development, especially for learning involving reading-writing and mathematical calculations. Evaluate motor development in children 3 years old and its relationship with their cognitive abilities at the age of 5 years. Based on a cohort study, we analyzed the information about motor performance evaluated at 3 years old by Peabody Motor Scale and cognitive abilities at 5 years old. The association was estimated using linear regression models adjusted by mother's intelligence quotient, sex, Bayley mental development index at 18 months, and quality of the environment at home (HOME scale)...

Lizbeth Moira Kenny, Franco Orsi, Andreas Adam
Molecular profiling of metastatic disease may greatly influence the systemic therapy recommended by oncologists and chosen by patients, allowing treatment to be more targeted. Comprehensive care of patients with advanced breast cancer now includes percutaneous image-guided biopsy if this has the potential to influence systemic treatment [1]. Interventional radiologists can contribute significantly to the care of patients affected by breast cancer, in diagnostic and supportive procedures and importantly also in treatment...

Epileptic seizures, as a dynamic phenomenon in brain behavior, obey a scale-free behavior, frequently analyzed by electrical activity recording. This recording can be seen as a surface that roughens with time. Dynamic scaling studies roughening processes or growing interfaces. In this theory, a set of exponents -obtained from scale invariance properties- characterize rough interfaces growth. The aim of the present study was to investigate scaling behavior in EEG time series fluctuations of a chemical animal model of temporal lobe epilepsy, with dynamic scaling to detect changes on seizure onset...

Fibroid nonenhancement is considered a relative contraindication to uterine artery embolization (UAE) for symptomatic fibroids. This retrospective study assessed the impact of UAE on nonenhancing fibroids to determine imaging predictors of fibroid shrinkage. All women who underwent UAE for symptomatic fibroids between May 2009 and July 2014 and had follow-up magnetic resonance imaging 6 months after UAE were included. There were 59 fibroids (5 nonenhancing, 54 enhancing) among 18 women aged 40 to 53 (mean 46) years...

Common variable immunodeficiency is characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia and the inability to respond to vaccines. Patients mostly manifest infections, however only less than 5 % have pathological conditions as autoimmunity, granulomatous inflammation, and splenomegaly or lymphoproliferative disease among others, without showing infections. We report the case of a woman who debuted with localized cutaneous affection, facial angioedema, without other early symptoms. After diagnosis splenomegaly and bronchiectasis were documented...

Microbial production of fuels and chemicals from lignocellulosic biomass provides promising biorenewable alternatives to the conventional petroleum-based products. However, heterogeneous sugar composition of lignocellulosic biomass hinders efficient microbial conversion due to carbon catabolite repression. The most abundant sugar monomers in lignocellulosic biomass materials are glucose and xylose. Although industrial Escherichia coli strains efficiently use glucose, their ability to use xylose is often repressed in the presence of glucose...

There is growing evidence that inflammatory responses may help to explain how emotions get "under the skin" to influence disease susceptibility. Moving beyond examination of individuals' average level of emotion, this study examined how the breadth and relative abundance of emotions that individuals experience-emodiversity-is related to systemic inflammation. Using diary data from 175 adults aged 40 to 65 who provided end-of-day reports of their positive and negative emotions over 30 days, we found that greater diversity in day-to-day positive emotions was associated with lower circulating levels of inflammation (indicated by IL-6, CRP, fibrinogen), independent of mean levels of positive and negative emotions, body mass index, anti-inflammatory medications, medical conditions, personality, and demographics...

Cycloclasticus bacteria are ubiquitous in oil-rich regions of the ocean and are known for their ability to degrade polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). In this study, we describe Cycloclasticus that have established a symbiosis with Bathymodiolus heckerae mussels and poecilosclerid sponges from asphalt-rich, deep-sea oil seeps at Campeche Knolls in the southern Gulf of Mexico. Genomic and transcriptomic analyses revealed that, in contrast to all previously known Cycloclasticus, the symbiotic Cycloclasticus appears to lack the genes needed for PAH degradation...

REVIEW
Lizbeth García-Velázquez, Clorinda Arias
Wnt signaling is a highly conserved pathway that participates in multiple aspects of cellular function during development and in adults. In particular, this pathway has been implicated in cell fate determination, proliferation and cell polarity establishment. In the brain, it contributes to synapse formation, axonal remodeling, dendrite outgrowth, synaptic activity, neurogenesis and behavioral plasticity. The expression and distribution of Wnt components in different organs vary with age, which may have important implications for preserving tissue homeostasis...

In recent years clinical and epidemiological research on cysticercosis has gained significant interest in some countries, especially in Latin American countries and some countries in Asia and Africa. For many years it has been proposed that the higher prevalence of epilepsy seen in some regions such as Latin-America could be explained by parasitic infections, particularly neurocysticercosis (NCC). In this review we discussed selected epidemiological topics of the association of NCC and epilepsy, such as global distribution around the world, identification of NCC in developed countries, drug resistant epilepsy and NCC...

BACKGROUND: Obesity leads to olfaction alterations, and this can further impact food choices, appetite, and nutritional status. Bariatric procedures induce weight loss and change in taste and smell perception, but more information is needed, especially using objective olfaction tests. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted during 6 months, with candidates to laparoscopic gastric bypass at a single institution. A preoperative nasofibroscopy and gross smell identification test (The Pocket Smell Test ®) were performed in those meeting the inclusion criteria...

Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and kale have well documented chemopreventative and anticancer effects that are attributed to the presence of isothiocyanates (ITCs). ITCs modulate the levels of many oncogenic proteins, but the molecular mechanisms of ITC action are not understood. We previously reported that phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) inhibits two deubiquitinases (DUBs), USP9x and UCH37. DUBs regulate many cellular processes and DUB dysregulation is linked to the pathogenesis of human diseases including cancer, neurodegeneration, and inflammation...

SIGNIFICANCE Cellular senescence, characterized by a permanent cell cycle arrest, has been extensively studied in mitotic cells such as fibroblasts. However, senescent cells have also been observed in the brain. Even though it is recognized that cellular energetic metabolism and redox homeostasis are perturbed in the aged brain and neurodegenerative diseases, it is still unknown which alterations in the overall physiology can stimulate cellular senescence induction and their relationship with the former events...

A consistent line of investigation proposes that fibromyalgia is a sympathetically maintained neuropathic pain syndrome. Dorsal root ganglia sodium channels may play a major role in fibromyalgia pain transmission. Ambroxol is a secretolytic agent used in the treatment of various airway disorders. Recently, it was discovered that this compound is also an efficient sodium channel blocker with potent anti-neuropathic pain properties. We evaluated the add-on effect of ambroxol to the treatment of fibromyalgia. We studied 25 patients with fibromyalgia...

BACKGROUND: Leukaemia remains the most common type of paediatric cancer and its aetiology remains unknown, but considered to be multifactorial. It is suggested that the initiation in utero by relevant exposures and/or inherited genetic variants and, other promotional postnatal exposures are probably required to develop leukaemia. This study aimed to map the incidence and analyse possible clusters in the geographical distribution of childhood acute leukaemia during the critical periods and to evaluate the factors that may be involved in the aetiology by conducting community and individual risk assessments...
