This study investigated the phenotypic manifestations of interstitial duplications of chromosome 15 that involve the Prader-Willi/Angelman syndrome critical region (PWACR). Twenty-one affected individuals from six families were evaluated in detail, using standardized and semi-standardized measures of intelligence, psychopathology, and physical anomalies.(More)
Recent reports suggest that women with FRAXA premutations have an increased likelihood of having premature ovarian failure (POF). We screened 147 women with idiopathic POF for the number of trinucleotide repeats at the FRAXA and FRAXE loci. We found six women with FRAXA premutations, including four familial and two sporadic cases, but no women with FRAXA(More)
We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 11 944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011 matching the topics ‘global climate change’ or ‘global warming’. We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3%(More)
Two hundred and eleven patients with a clinical diagnosis of Turner syndrome were studied. We report (i) the cytogenetic results, (ii) the frequency of cryptic mosaicism and (iii) the parental age and the parental origin of the abnormality. We scored 100 cells from blood cultures and found 97 patients to have a 45,X constitution, 15 to be 45,X/46,XX or(More)
Preliminary results on a large population-based molecular survey of FRAXA and FRAXE are reported. All boys with unexplained learning difficulties are eligible for inclusion in the study and data are presented on the first 1013 tested. Individuals were tested for the number of trinucleotide repeats at FRAXA and FRAXE and typed for four flanking(More)
We report the first measurement of charged particle elliptic flow in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[S(NN)] =2.76 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurement is performed in the central pseudorapidity region (|η|<0.8) and transverse momentum range 0.2<p t<5.0 GeV/c. The elliptic flow signal v₂, measured using the 4-particle(More)
In our experience, severe pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is often complicated by deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Because of the association between inflammation and haemostatic changes that can result in a hypercoagulable state, we have prospectively examined such predisposing factors in representative patients. Sequential analyses in a control group with(More)
The first measurement of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair √ S NN = 2.76 TeV is presented. For an event sample corresponding to the most central 5% of the hadronic cross section, the pseudorapidity density of primary charged particles at midrapidity is 1584 ± 4(stat) ±(More)
