PURPOSE Retinal capillary pericytes underwent apoptosis in vitro after they had been exposed long-term to high levels of glucose followed by a rapid glucose reduction. The present work was designed to study the expression of bcl-2 family members and apoptosis regulatory genes and to determine the status of oxidative stress induced by high concentrations of(More)
BACKGROUND China is the most populated country and has one of the highest prevalences of oral clefting. The present study reports the epidemiology and surgical procedures performed on the largest reported cohort of individuals with clefting in China. METHODS A retrospective review of patients who received cleft repair through Smile Train in China from(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypodontia, hypohidrosis, sparse hair and characteristic faces are the main characters of X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED) which is caused by genetic ectodysplasin A (EDA) deficiency. Heterozygous female carriers tend to have mild to moderate XLHED phenotype, even though 30% of them present no obvious symptom. METHODS A(More)
ROS1 rearrangement has recently emerged as a new molecular subtype in non-small cell lung cancer, and is predominantly found in lung adenocarcinomas compared with other oncogenes such as EGFR, KRAS, or ALK. Patients who have both mutations are extremely rare. Here we report a 50-year-old female diagnosed with adenocarcinoma with sarcomatoid differentiation,(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the cyclic adenosine 3',5'‑monophosphate (cAMP)/protein kinase A(PKA)/cAMP‑responsive element binding protein (CREB) signal transduction pathway triggered by γ‑aminobutyric acid class B (GABA(B)) receptor activation is involved in neuroprotection against ischemia and behavioral recovery induced by(More)
Ellis–van Creveld syndrome (EvC) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by disproportionate chondrodysplasia, postaxial polydactyly, nail dystrophy, dental abnormalities and in a proportion of patients, congenital cardiac malformations. Weyers acrofacial dysostosis (Weyers) is another dominantly inherited disorder allelic to EvC syndrome but(More)
We performed an association analysis of Fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) CGG repeats in 321 essential tremor (ET) cases and 296 controls at Columbia University. In addition to analyzing the allele distribution (10-49 CGG repeats) in the entire sample, we also performed a screen for ET cases with the FMR1 premutation allele (55-200 CGG repeats), and(More)
