Headaches provoked by triggering factors have been recognized for many decades. In many cases, the development of such headaches is secondary to an underlying pathology. However, in some cases, no abnormality can be identified. Primary headache associated with sexual activity (PHASA) is one of the subgroups of primary headaches. PHASA is a benign form of headache and lifetime prevalence is estimated to be 1% to 1.6% in the general population. A 38-year-old man was admitted to outpatient clinic reporting history of severe headaches during sexual intercourse for the last 2 months...

One of the significant modifications to the Common Rule is the requirement that prospective participants are given information sufficient for a "reasonable person". However, there is limited research on what types of information patients, caregivers, and providers consider "key information". Although certain aspects of informed consent (IC) may be considered standard, considering individualized needs and preferences of patients is necessary for patient-centered consent. In the current study, we qualitatively examined the specific types of information that patients and caregivers involved in hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), as well as their providers, believe are important and necessary as part of the IC process in order to make a decision about participating in clinical research; and further, how these perspectives are aligned...

We report here cryoelectron microscopy reconstructions of type IV pili (T4P) from two important human pathogens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Neisseria gonorrhoeae, at ∼ 8 and 5 Å resolution, respectively. The two structures reveal distinct arrangements of the pilin globular domains on the pilus surfaces, which impart different helical parameters, but similar packing of the conserved N-terminal α helices, α1, in the filament core. In contrast to the continuous α helix seen in the X-ray crystal structures of the P...

GS2 is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by hypopigmentation, variable immunodeficiency with HLH. HSCT is the only curative treatment for GS2. We analyzed the outcome of 10 children with GS2 who underwent HSCT at our center between October 1997 and September 2013. The median age of the patients at transplant was 13.5 months (range, 6-58 months). All of the patients developed HLH before HSCT and received HLH 94 or HLH 2004 protocols. Donors were HLA-identical relatives in 8 patients, HLA-mismatched relatives in 2 patients...

Microcephalic primordial dwarfism (MPD) is a group of autosomal recessive inherited single-gene disorders with intrauterine and postnatal global growth failure. Seckel syndrome is the most common form of the MPD. Ten genes are known with Seckel syndrome. Using genome-wide SNP genotyping and homozygosity mapping we mapped a Seckel syndrome gene to chromosomal region 4q28.1-q28.3 in a Turkish family. Direct sequencing of PLK4 (polo-like kinase 4) revealed a homozygous splicing acceptor site transition (c.31-3 A>G) that results in a premature translation termination (p...
