The endogenous circadian clock of mammals retains synchrony with the external light:dark cycle through ocular photoreceptors. To date the identity of the photoreceptors responsible for mediating this response is unknown. This review outlines attempts using transgenic mouse models to address this deficit. Mice bearing specific inherited lesions of both rod(More)
In previous studies, fully functional rod and long-wavelength-sensitive (LWS) cone photopigments have been isolated from the eye of the subterranean blind mole rat (Spalax ehrenbergi superspecies). Spalax possesses subcutaneous atrophied eyes and lacks any ability to respond to visual images. By contrast this animal retains the ability to entrain circadian(More)
Congenital nystagmus may occur in a manifest or latent form. Since most patients with latent nystagmus also have nystagmus with both eyes open (manifest latent nystagmus), differentiation between these two entities frequently requires electronystagmographic wave form analysis. Such analysis shows distinctive characteristics for manifest and latent or(More)
Known antiretroviral restriction factors are encoded by genes that are under positive selection pressure, induced during HIV-1 infection, up-regulated by interferons, and/or interact with viral proteins. To identify potential novel restriction factors, we performed genome-wide scans for human genes sharing molecular and evolutionary signatures of known(More)
Severe adenovirus infection in children can manifest with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and respiratory failure, leading to the need for prolonged mechanical support in the form of either mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal life support. Early extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) intervention for children with ARDS should be(More)

In typical hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) approximately 25% of patients show central nervous system (CNS) involvement often leading to serious long-term disabilities. We used the C5-complement inhibitor Eculizumab as rescue therapy. From 2011 to 2014, 11 children (median age 22 months, range 11-175) with enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli-positive HUS(More)

In the context of structural reliability, a small probability to be assessed, a high computational time model and a relatively large input dimension are typical constraints which brought together lead to an interesting challenge. Indeed, in this framework many existing stochastic methods fail in estimating the failure probability with ro-bustness.(More)
