Focal facial dermal dysplasia (FFDD) Type IV is a rare syndrome characterized by facial lesions resembling aplasia cutis in a preauricular distribution along the line of fusion of the maxillary and mandibular prominences. To identify the causative gene(s), exome sequencing was performed in a family with two affected siblings. Assuming autosomal recessive(More)
Activation of the immune system in the central nervous system and oxidative stress play important roles in traumatic brain injury (TBI)-induced cognitive impairment. Rhamnetin possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. This study aimed to detect the possible effects of rhamnetin on cognitive deficit, hippocampal inflammatory factors, and(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) represents one of most common tumors in humans. However, the biological processes and molecular mechanisms of GBM are still unclear. It is known that microRNA-520b (miR-520b) participates in the development of various tumor progressions. The present study was to evaluate the level of miR-520b in GBM tissues and cells. We further(More)
Engineering T cells with chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) is proving to be an effective method for directing T cells to attack tumors in an MHC-independent manner. Current generation CARs aim to recapitulate T cell signal-ing by incorporating modular functional components of the TCR and costimulatory molecules. Development of next generation CARs has(More)
We present a case of intraparenchymal hemorrhage in a neonate with cleidocranial dysostosis, a skeletal dysplasia that leads to delayed skull ossification. The patient's details are reported, including neuroimaging, photographs of classic dysmorphic features, and genetic testing. After spontaneous vaginal birth, the patient was hypotonic and(More)
