Emerging Concepts of the Pathophysiology and Adverse Outcomes of Restless Legs Syndrome.
A better understanding of RLS/WED pathophysiology will allow patients to receive tailored therapy, resulting in an improved quality of life, and international guidelines recommend that whenever possible the initial treatment of choice should be an α2δ ligand, and the avoidance of dopaminergic agents unless absolutely necessary. Expand
TOX3 gene variant could be associated with painful restless legs.
This study might suggest the TOX3 gene variant as a potential genetic substrate for the painful RLS sub-phenotype as well as population-based samples of RLS subjects. Expand
Genetics of restless legs syndrome: An update.
A major role of genetic factors in the risk of developing restless legs syndrome (RLS) is supported by the high frequency of positive family history of RLS in patients affected with this disease, andExpand
Health risks associated with genetic alterations in internal clock system by external factors
This review identifies the major risks and associated factors related with disruption in circadian system and sleep and considers the role of clock genes and environmental factors. Expand
Shiftwork-Mediated Disruptions of Circadian Rhythms and Sleep Homeostasis Cause Serious Health Problems
This review is an attempt to motivate the researchers to conduct advanced studies in this area to identify the risk factors and mechanisms and to make the shift workers aware about the risks associated with shiftwork. Expand
Sleep disturbance by pramipexole is modified by Meis1 in mice
In conclusion, Meis1 haploinsufficiency seems to have only a modest effect on sleep, but the gene may interact with the sleep‐disrupting effect of dopamine agonists. Expand
[Restless legs syndrome from the perspective of psychiatry].
Doctors should be aware of the syndrome since many drugs used by them such as antipsychotics, antidepressants and anxiolytics can worsen the symptoms and the syndrome may be associated with depressive and anxiety diseases. Expand
La médecine du sommeil : 1965-2015
La medecine du sommeil a maintenant 50 ans. A l’Universite de Montreal, le Centre d’etude du sommeil naissait il y a environ 40 ans et a grandi pour devenir en 2012 le Centre d’etudes avancees enExpand
Perioperatives Vorgehen bei Restless-legs-Syndrom
Drugs with dopamine antagonistic, serotonergic and opioid antagonistic effects should be avoided and the long-term medicinal treatment should be terminated as quickly as possible and if necessary bridged non-orally. Expand


TOX3 is a neuronal survival factor that induces transcription depending on the presence of CITED1 or phosphorylated CREB in the transcriptionally active complex
It is suggested that TOX3 can enhance transcriptional activation from different cytoprotective promoters and that this is dependent on the predominance of either phosphorylated CREB or CITED1 within the transcriptionally active complex. Expand
Performance of common genetic variants in breast-cancer risk models.
The inclusion of newly discovered genetic factors modestly improved the performance of risk models for breast cancer, and the level of predicted breast-cancer risk among most women changed little after the addition of currently available genetic information. Expand
Variance component model to account for sample structure in genome-wide association studies
A variance component approach implemented in publicly available software, EMMA eXpedited (EMMAX), that reduces the computational time for analyzing large GWAS data sets from years to hours is reported. Expand
A genome-wide association study identifies three loci associated with mean platelet volume.
In-depth sequence analysis of WDR66 in 382 samples from the extremes revealed 20 new variants and a haplotype with three coding SNPs and one SNP at the transcription start site associated with MPV (p = 6.8 x 10(-5), which may enhance understanding of platelet activation and function. Expand
Burden of sleep apnea: rationale, design, and major findings of the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort study.
The history and need for a population approach to understanding sleep apnea are outlined and a review of the first longitudinal population study of this disorder is provided to illustrate the population burden ofSleep apnea. Expand
Long non-coding RNAs: insights into functions
The rapidly advancing field of long ncRNAs is reviewed, describing their conservation, their organization in the genome and their roles in gene regulation, and the medical implications. Expand
NBN 657del5 heterozygous mutations and colorectal cancer risk in the Czech Republic.
The present results do not provide any evidence that the exceeding risk of CRC in this population is attributable to the high frequency of heterozygous carriage of the NBN 657del5. Expand
TOX3 regulates calcium-dependent transcription in neurons
These observations identify TOX3 as an important regulator of calcium-dependent transcription and suggest that toX3 exerts its effect on CRE-mediated transcription via its association with the CREB–CBP complex. Expand

Assessing the Combined Impact of 18 Common Genetic Variants of Modest Effect Sizes on Type 2 Diabetes Risk
Currently, common risk variants for type 2 diabetes do not provide strong predictive value at a population level, however, the joint effect of risk variants identified subgroups of the population at substantially different risk of disease. Expand
