Development of the zebrafish hypothalamus
TLDR
It is concluded that the zebrafish has proved itself a valuable vertebrate model for understanding the patterning, specification, morphogenesis, and subsequent function of the hypothalamus. Expand
CD74 induces TAp63 expression leading to B-cell survival.
TLDR
The CD74/NF-kappaB/TAp63 axis defines a novel antiapoptotic pathway in mature B cells, resulting in the shaping of both the B-cell repertoire and the immune response. Expand
Amblyopia and strabismus: trends in prevalence and risk factors among young adults in Israel
TLDR
The establishment of the national screening programme for children and the improved utility of treatment for amblyopia and strabismus coincide with these trends, and it is possible that these early interventions resulted in modification of the ‘natural history’ of these conditions and their prevalence in adolescence. Expand
Integrating bioinformatics into senior high school: design principles and implications
TLDR
A new approach for characterizing the questions embedded in bioinformatics teaching and learning units is presented, based on three criteria: the type of domain-specific knowledge required to answer each question, the scientific approach from which each question stems and the associated cognitive process dimension. Expand
Quality control and quality assurance of medical committee performance in the Israel Defense Forces.
TLDR
Methods that can be used to assess disability screening, sports medicine committees and primary care setting procedures are highlighted. Expand
Adolescent BMI at Northern Israel: From Trends, to Associated Variables and Comorbidities, and to Medical Signatures
TLDR
A downward trend in the prevalence of normal BMI among both male and female adolescents was obtained, while trends of overweight and obesity (in both genders) and underweight (only among females) rose, and Hierarchical clustering analysis revealed the intricate relations between gender, BMI, and medical signatures. Expand
Coordinated computerized systems aimed at management, control, and quality assurance of medical processes and informatics.
TLDR
The combined computerized system improves the control and management of the medical processes and informatics from the point-of-view of both the patients and system operators, and becomes a component of the decision making by the system operators and the administrative staff. Expand
Quality-assuring intervention for technical medical staff at medical committees.
TLDR
The model of the intervention program could be modified and adopted by medical committees, sports medicine examinations, periodic screening procedures, and primary care medicine in order to improve the quality of medical records and medical care. Expand
Visualization of mRNA expression in the zebrafish embryo.
TLDR
A standard protocol for visualizing the precise expression pattern of a single transcript or multiple gene products is described, which employs fixation and permeabilization of embryos, followed by hybridization with tagged antisense riboprobes. Expand
From a Quality Assurance and Control System for Medical Processes, Through Epidemiological Trends of Medical Conditions, to a Nationwide Health Project
TLDR
This book aims to provide a chronology of key events and researchers' activities leading to and after the establishment of the Israel Health Ministry in 1993. Expand
