BACKGROUND: We describe a case of severe and progressive lumbar hyperlordosis (160°) in a 28-year-old female university student with cerebral palsy. Her main complaints were abdominal wall pain and increasing inability to sit in her custom wheelchair. METHOD: When deciding on our opinion about the most promising treatment strategy, we contemplated slow continued correction by means of percutaneously expandable magnetic rods (MAGEC) after the index surgery as a key component of a satisfactory correction in this severe and rigid curve...

BACKGROUND: In Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, fluctuations in symptoms commonly occur after many years of dopamine replacement therapy. The so-called wearing-off phenomenon exists of both motor and non-motor symptoms, such as rigidity and anxiety. Current treatment options are limited and an integrated approach is needed to address the complex interactions between motor and non-motor symptoms. Since wearing-off is eventually inevitable, treatment needs to focus on coping, acceptance and self-efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Fractured vertebral bodies are a common and wide spread health issue. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop a standardized method to experimentally generate compression fractures in vertebral bodies. The influence of the pedicles has been investigated with regards to the fracture behavior. The correlation between bone mineral density (BMD), the cause of fractures and the fracture behavior was investigated. METHODS: Twenty-one fresh frozen human lumbar spines were examined for bone mineral density (BMD) by means of quantitative computed tomography (qCT)...

The bed bug Cimex lectularius is a globally distributed human ectoparasite with fascinating biology. It has recently acquired resistance against a broad range of insecticides, causing a worldwide increase in bed bug infestations. The recent annotation of the bed bug genome revealed a full complement of neuropeptide and neuropeptide receptor genes in this species. With regard to the biology of C. lectularius, neuropeptide signalling is especially interesting since it regulates feeding, diuresis, digestion as well as reproduction, and also provides potential new targets for chemical control...

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), previously known as Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), is a rare systemic disease characterized by necrotizing granulomas and vasculitis that usually presents in the respiratory tract and renal system. Here, we report a case of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-negative GPA with diagnostic difficulties. Neurologic involvement in GPA is not uncommon, with up to 50% of patients manifesting with neurologic defects; however, it is usually a late event. This patient was a 50-year-old man whose first manifestation was multiple neurologic defects without respiratory or renal symptoms...

The field of photopharmacology aims to introduce smart drugs that, through the incorporation of molecular photoswitches, allow for the remote spatial and temporal control of bioactivity by light. This concept could be particularly beneficial in the treatment of bacterial infections, by reducing the systemic and environmental side-effects of antibiotics. A major concern in the realization of such light-responsive drugs is the wavelength of the light that is applied. Studies on the photocontrol of biologically active agents mostly rely on UV light, which is cytotoxic and poorly suited for tissue penetration...

Thiol-amine mixtures are an attractive medium for the solution processing of semiconducting thin films because of their remarkable ability to dissolve a variety of metals, metal chalcogenides, metal salts, and chalcogens. However, very little is known about their dissolution chemistry. Electrospray ionization high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry and X-ray absorption spectroscopy were employed to identify the species formed upon dissolution of CuCl and CuCl2 in 1-propanethiol and n-butylamine. Copper was found to be present exclusively in the 1+ oxidation state for both solutions...

Kelp forest ecosystems are biodiversity hotspots, providing habitat for dense assemblages of marine organisms and nutrients for marine and terrestrial food webs. The surfaces of kelps support diverse microbial communities that facilitate the transfer of carbon from algal primary production to higher trophic levels. We quantified the diversity of bacteria on the surfaces of eight sympatric kelp species from four sites in British Columbia. Kelp-associated bacterial communities are significantly different from their environment, even though 86% of their bacterial taxa are shared with seawater and 97% are shared with rocky substrate...

CONTEXT: We have previously shown that an antidepressant-like effect of probiotics in rats was associated with a higher plasma level of the microbial tryptophan metabolite indole-3-propionic acid (IPA). OBJECTIVE: We therefore wanted to study the isolated effect of IPA on behaviour and glucose metabolism in rats. METHODS: Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed control or IPA-enriched diet for six weeks (n = 12 per group) and assessed in the elevated plus maze, open field and forced swim test...

REVIEW
Marius Wegener, Michaela Müller-McNicoll
Nuclear retention of incompletely spliced or mature mRNAs emerges as a novel, previously underappreciated layer of gene regulation, which enables the cell to rapidly respond to stress, viral infection, differentiation cues or changing environmental conditions. Focusing on mammalian cells, we discuss recent insights into the mechanisms and functions of nuclear retention, describe retention-promoting features in protein-coding transcripts and propose mechanisms for their regulated release into the cytoplasm. Moreover, we discuss examples of how aberrant nuclear retention of mRNAs may lead to human diseases...

BACKGROUND: Making an accurate diagnosis of optic disc drusen (ODD) is important as part of the work-up for possible life-threatening optic disc edema. It also is important to follow the slowly progressive visual field defects many patients with ODD experience. The introduction of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) has improved the visualization of more deeply buried ODD. There is, however, no consensus regarding the diagnosis of ODD using OCT. The purpose of this study was to develop a consensus recommendation for diagnosing ODD using OCT...

Outbreaks of infectious diseases may occur in animal and human populations; this underlines the need for suitable One Health approaches. During outbreak situations, straightforward identification of etiological agents is indispensable for taking countermeasures. A recently published protocol for metagenomic virus detection in clinical specimens (TUViD-VM) was developed for snap-frozen tissues which can be challenging to obtain. Here, we describe the use of RNALater(®) -treated tissue at ambient temperatures for virome sequencing...
