Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is a common microdeletion syndrome associated with a markedly elevated risk of schizophrenia in adulthood. Cognitive impairments such as a low IQ and deficits in attention and executive function are common in childhood. The catechol O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene maps within the deleted region and is involved(More)
This article reviews the use of Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) with depressed youth living in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps in North Uganda. This youth has been exposed to severe losses and disruptions in relationships with caregivers, family, and community members; limited access to formal education; exposure to malnutrition and infections;(More)
Dissemination of innovations is widely considered the sine qua non for system improvement. At least two dozen states are rolling out evidence-based mental health practices targeted at children and families using trainings, consultations, webinars, and learning collaboratives to improve quality and outcomes. In New York State (NYS) a group of researchers,(More)
CCL21 chemokine binds the G protein-coupled receptor CCR7, aiding not only in immune response but also in cancer metastasis. Compared with other chemokines, CCL21 has a unique extended unstructured C-terminus that is truncated in some naturally occurring variants. We have determined the X-ray crystallographic structure of a truncated CCL21 (residues 1-79)(More)
Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is presently being employed in clinical trials for the therapy of various neurological disorders. The toxicity of BH4 in mice was analyzed by acute and subchronic intraperitoneal and acute oral survival studies. Organ weight analysis and histopathology were performed after acute and subchronic i.p. administration. The effect of(More)
We have determined a 1.18 Å resolution X-ray crystal structure of a novel ruthenocenyle-6-aminopenicillinic acid in complex with CTX-M β-lactamase, showing unprecedented details of interactions between ruthenocene and protein. As the first product complex with an intact catalytic serine, the structure also offers insights into β-lactamase catalysis and(More)
Doxorubicin is an anthracycline antibiotic with a very wide spectrum of anticancer activity. It has a great potential for clinical cardiotoxicity, however. One mechanism suggested for the cardiotoxicity is inhibition of ubiquinone-dependent enzymes. It was our purpose to study this possible mechanism using ubiquinone antagonists as probes. The effect on(More)
The literature establishes a potential link between the function of tetrahydroisoquinolines in the biological actions of alcohol and the reduced pterin cofactor needed for synthesis of certain neurotransmitters. The effect of the administration of 6-methyltetrahydropterin and tetrahydrobiopterin upon alcohol withdrawal in mice was tested. Dependence was(More)
BACKGROUND Since 2001, the French hospital stay databases (Programme de médicalisation des systèmes d'information, PMSI) have included a unique and anonymous identifier in order to cross-link discharge abstracts from a given patient, within and across hospitals. These data could be used to estimate prevalence for some diseases at a territorial level(More)
