Recessive ataxias are a heterogeneous group of diseases. We identified a group of 23 French-Canadian cases belonging to 17 families affected by an autosomal recessive spastic ataxia associated with frequent white matter changes. The fact that 59% of these families have a genealogical relationship to the Portneuf County of Quebec suggests that this is a new(More)
Lynch syndrome is one of the most common autosomal dominantly inherited cancer syndromes. Mutations in MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2 account for greater than 98% of reported mutations in Lynch syndrome families. It has been reported that large genomic deletions in MLH1 and MSH2 are a frequent cause of Lynch syndrome in certain populations. Using a multimodal(More)
BACKGROUND Somatic mutations of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene in nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) may predict responsiveness to tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These mutations are commonly identified using DNA sequencing methods. Although considered the gold standard, this approach is time-consuming. In addition, this approach requires large(More)
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD) are a heterogeneous group of pathologies. We have identified a cohort of 14 French-Canadian patients from eight different families displaying a novel form of LGMD with an autosomal recessive inheritance. These patients share some features with previously described cases of 'quadriceps myopathy' that evolved into an(More)
Congenital muscular dystrophies (CMDS) are a heterogeneous group of disorders. A growing number of CMDS have been found to be associated with joint hyperlaxity. We recruited 14 French-Canadian cases belonging to 11 families affected by a novel autosomal recessive congenital muscular dystrophy with hyperlaxity (CMDH). All cases come from the southwestern(More)
INTRODUCTION Hearing and vision loss among long-term care (LTC) residents with dementia frequently goes unnoticed and untreated. Despite negative consequences for these residents, there is little information available about their sensory abilities and care assessments and practices seldom take these abilities or accessibility needs into account. Without(More)
This is an 11-year survey of molecular analysis of APC germline mutations for the province of Quebec done at the Molecular Pathology Unit of the Jewish General Hospital which offers genetic testing for hereditary forms of colorectal cancer for the whole of Quebec province. We report on 47 unique mutations seen in 66 families affected with familial(More)
