Photoreceptor neuronal degenerations are common and incurable causes of human blindness with one in 2000 affected. Approximately, half of all patients are associated with known mutations in more than 200 disease genes. Most retinal degenerations are restricted to the retina (primary retinal degeneration) but photoreceptor degeneration can also be found in a(More)
PURPOSE Photoreceptor neuronal degenerations are common, incurable causes of human blindness affecting 1 in 2000 patients worldwide. Only half of all patients are associated with known mutations in over 250 disease genes, prompting our research program to identify the remaining new genes. Most retinal degenerations are restricted to the retina, but(More)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients are at increased risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC). Vitamin D (vD) induces NOD2 gene expression, enhancing immunity, while deficiency impairs intestinal epithelial integrity, increasing inflammation. This study investigated the effect of vD on CRC in colitis, and if preventive benefits are mediated via(More)
