BACKGROUND: Optimal functioning of the lower extremities under repeated movements on unstable surfaces is essential for military effectiveness. Intervention training to promote proprioceptive ability should be considered in order to limit the risk for musculoskeletal injuries. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of a proprioceptive intervention programme on static and dynamic postural balance among Israel Defense Forces combat soldiers. METHODS: Twenty-seven male soldiers, aged 18-20 years, from a physical fitness instructor's course, were randomly divided into two groups matched by age and army unit...

Early-onset Parkinson's disease (EOPD) is less common than the typical adult-onset PD and may be associated with a genetic etiology. Mutations in several genes are known to cause autosomal recessive (AR) PD. This study aimed to detect the etiology of EOPD in consanguineous families or families living in a specific small geographic region in Israel. Six families with EOPD affecting more than a single individual were recruited. Homozygous mapping analysis using a single-nucleotide polymorphism-based array was performed in all families, followed by Sanger sequencing of related genes based on the mapping results...

Introduction: Data regarding esophageal cancer (EC) in Israel are limited. The aim of this study was hence to characterize this entity in the Israeli population and to compare it to the literature. Patients/Methods: This is a retrospective study of all consecutive EC patients treated at our institution between 1997-2013. Data were retrieved from patients' medical files. Results: Two hundred patients were included. The median age at diagnosis was 70.5 years; 63.5% were males; 63% were Ashkenazi Jews, 29% were Sephardic Jews, and 0...

Brain abscesses caused by group A Streptococcus (GAS) are infrequently encountered in children. We present two cases of brain abscess (one cerebellar and one located in the temporal lobe) due to GAS infection occurring in close temporal proximity in previously healthy young children living in different geographic areas of southern Israel. The relevant literature since 2000, in the context of recent epidemiological data reporting an increase in the incidence of invasive GAS infections, is reviewed.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been widely used for the treatment of aortic stenosis. Most pivotal studies of TAVI included patients with a mean age of over 80 years old. Many young patients may also be considered for TAVI because of severe co-morbidities. We sought to describe a group of patients undergoing TAVI at an age below 70 and to compare them with older patients undergoing the procedure. This study included 1,324 consecutive patients from a 3-center TAVI registry from 2008 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: In anti-NMDA receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis, antibody-mediated dysfunction of NMDARs causes severe neuropsychiatric symptoms, including psychosis, memory deficits, and movement disorders. However, it remains elusive how antibody-mediated NMDAR dysfunction leads to these symptoms, and whether the symptoms arise from impairment in specific brain regions and the interactions between impaired regions. METHODS: In this observational study, we recruited 43 patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis from a tertiary university hospital and 43 age-matched and sex-matched healthy controls without a history of neurological or psychiatric disorders, who were recruited from the general population of Berlin...

Hemipteran insects of the suborder Sternorrhyncha are plant-sap feeders, where each family is obligately associated with a specific bacterial endosymbiont that produces essential nutrients lacking in the sap. Coccidae (soft scale insects) is the only major sternorrhynchan family in which obligate symbiont(s) have not been identified. We studied the microbiota in seven species from this family from Israel, Spain and Cyprus by high throughput sequencing of ribosomal genes, and found that no specific bacterium was prevalent and abundant in all the tested species...

Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is a systemic disease that can present with cutaneous lesions with or without internal involvement. It is the most common vascular neoplasm. It can involve any skin surface, including the genitalia. (1,2) KS limited to the external genitalia is rare in HIV sero-negative individuals. Kaposi sarcoma became known because of the correlation with AIDS-defining illnesses in the 1980s.(3) This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

OBJECTIVE: We compared performance on a cognitively demanding task, the Weekly Calendar Planning Activity, of participants in three age groups and two countries (United States and Israel). METHOD: A sample of 375 U.S. and 433 Israeli healthy adults participated. During the activity, participants were observed for speed, accuracy, strategy use, and efficiency. RESULTS: Accuracy scores were similar in both countries; however, Israeli participants were slower and less efficient (p < ...

This study investigated ageism among healthcare professionals in various therapeutic settings in Israel. Using a qualitative approach, the current study aimed to examine similarities and differences across healthcare disciplines. Three focus groups were conducted with physicians, nurses, and social workers. Data from each focus group were analyzed separately, and then commonalities and differences across the groups were evaluated. Three main themes relating to older adults emerged from the data. The first theme pertains to perceived difficulties that healthcare professionals experience in working with older adults and their family members; the second focuses on invisibility and discriminatory communication patterns; and the third theme relates to provision of inappropriate care to older adults...

BACKGROUND: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is the most common form of inherited retinal dystrophy, with a worldwide prevalence of 1 in 4000 persons. While in most cases of RP, the disease is limited to the eye (non-syndromic), over 40 forms of syndromic RP have been described. OBJECTIVES: To identify the genetic basis for syndromic RP in three unrelated families from Israel and Spain. METHODS: Whole exome sequencing was conducted in one Israeli and two Spanish families segregating autosomal recessive RP with intellectual disability...

OBJECTIVE: To assess 1-year persistence and adherence rates with drug therapy among patients with fibromyalgia (FM) and to identify factors associated with therapy discontinuation. METHODS: This retrospective, cohort study included members ≥ 21 years old from the Maccabi Healthcare Services, a large health maintenance organization in Israel, who were diagnosed with FM from 2008 through 2011. Medications of interest included the anticonvulsant pregabalin, antidepressants [selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), serotonin/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI)], and tricyclic antidepressants (TCA)...

On March 21, 1973, Israel's Council of Higher Education (CHE) was convened by Yigal Alon, the Council's chair and the Minister of Education, to vote on whether to approve a proposal to establish a school of medicine in the Negev. In the preliminary discussion, Avraham Harman, the president of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem turned to Professor Moshe Prywes, the president of Ben-Gurion University in the Negev and commented: "Be assured, a school of medicine in Beer Sheva won't pass." At the close of the discussion, the twenty members of the CHE were asked to vote...

In this article, we focus on the analysis of dyed textile fragments uncovered at an early Iron Age (11th-10th centuries BCE) copper smelting site during new excavations in the Timna Valley conducted by the Central Timna Valley (CTV) Project, as well as those found by the Arabah Expedition at the Hathor Temple (Site 200), dated to the Late Bronze/early Iron Ages (13th-11th centuries BCE). Analysis by HPLC-DAD identified two organic dyestuffs, Rubia tinctorum L. and indigotin, from a plant source (probably Isatis tinctoria L...

West Nile Virus (WNV) is endemic in Israel, affecting yearly 40-160 individuals. Israel is located on a central migratory path between Africa and Eurasia and most West Nile Fever (WNF) cases reported in recent years were among residents of the coastal plain. The aim of the study was to evaluate the seroprevalence of WNV among the Israeli population and to assess correlates for WNV infection. A cross-sectional nationwide serologic survey was conducted using 3,145 serum samples collected by the national Israeli serum bank during 2011-2014, representing all age and population groups in Israel...
