C12orf65 participates in the process of mitochondrial translation and has been shown to be associated with a spectrum of phenotypes, including early onset optic atrophy, progressive encephalomyopathy, peripheral neuropathy, and spastic paraparesis.We used whole-genome homozygosity mapping as well as exome sequencing and targeted gene sequencing to identify(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence demonstrates that both maternal prepregnancy body mass index (mppBMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) are associated with adult offspring adiposity. However, whether these maternal attributes are related to other cardiometabolic risk factors in adulthood has not been comprehensively studied. METHODS AND RESULTS We used a(More)
OBJECTIVES Studies demonstrate associations between changes in obesity-related phenotypes and cardiovascular risk. Although maternal pre-pregnancy BMI (mppBMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) may be associated with adult offspring adiposity, no study has examined associations with obesity changes. Associations of mppBMI and GWG with longitudinal change in(More)
PURPOSE To examine the association between parity and long-term, all-cause mortality and mortality owing to specific causes in women. METHODS This prospective population-based study included 40,454 mothers who gave birth in Western Jerusalem, Israel, to 125,842 children and were followed for an average of 37 years after the birth of their first child. Cox(More)
BACKGROUND Telangiectases are abnormal dilatations of end vessels in the subpapillary plexus of the papillary dermis. Hereditary benign telangiectasia (HBT) (OMIM 187260) is a genetic skin disorder, characterized by multiple cutaneous telangiectases appearing in the first years of life in various locations. Several familial cases of HBT have been described(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the white blood cell (WBC) and neutrophil counts in early puerperium and to investigate their contribution to the diagnosis of puerperal bacterial infection. METHODS A retrospective cohort analysis through which clinical and laboratory data were collected from 67 695 term live births. Total leukocyte and neutrophil blood count(More)
BACKGROUND Although the use of central venous catheters (CVCs) has greatly improved the quality of care of children with cancer, these catheters increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and the potential long-term complication of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). We aimed to study PTS post-CVC removal using physical, functional and health related(More)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have a major impact on human health. Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several genetic loci that are associated with plasma levels of n-3 and n-6 PUFAs in primarily subjects of European ancestry. However, the relevance of these findings has not been evaluated extensively in other ethnic groups.(More)
Introduction—Studies demonstrate associations between changes in obesity-related phenotypes and cardiovascular risk. While maternal pre-pregnancy BMI (mppBMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) may be associated with adult offspring adiposity, no study has examined associations with obesity changes. Objectives—We examined associations of mppBMI and GWG with(More)
PURPOSE The study objective was to investigate whether child loss is related to mortality, cancer incidence, and cancer survival in parents. METHODS We used a population-based birth cohort (1964-1976) in Jerusalem and ascertained mortality (average follow-up of 39.1 years) and any cancer (average follow-up of 35.6 years) among parents who lost a child(More)
