– This paper introduces the logarithmic autoregressive conditional duration (Log-ACD) model and compares it with the ACD model of ENGLE and RUSSELL . The logarithmic version allows to introduce in the model additional variables without sign restrictions on their coefficients. We apply the Log-ACD model to price durations relative to the bid-ask quote… (More)
BACKGROUND The microdeletion of chromosome 22q11.2 is the most common human deletion syndrome. It typically presents early in life and is rarely considered in adult patients. As part of the manifestations of this condition, patients can have parathyroid glandular involvement ranging from hypocalcemic hypoparathyroidism to normocalcemia with normal… (More)
We present a male patient with constitutional ring 1 chromosome and subsequent 6 Mb deletion at 1q43q44. The patient displays overlapping clinical features with reported patients with ring 1 chromosome and 1q43q44 microdeletion syndrome. To our knowledge, this is the first patient with ring 1 chromosome characterized by comparative genomic hybridization.
We report a new case of frontofacionasal dysplasia or dysostosis (FFND) with a 1.5 Mb duplication in the region of 7p15.2-p15.1, and provide a review of the literature to understand the underlying pathogenesis better.
