Exploring the frequency and clinical background of the "zebra sign" in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple system atrophy.

In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the "zebra sign" in the precentral gyrus on phase difference enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (PADRE) recently has been reported as a possible imaging biomarker for upper motor neuron (UMN) involvement. A previous study has shown that the "zebra sign" allowed us to differentiate patients with ALS from healthy subjects with excellent accuracy. We validated the usefulness of the sign for differentiating patients with ALS from healthy subjects and investigated whether...

Lessons for conservation management: Monitoring temporal changes in genetic diversity of Cape mountain zebra (Equus zebra zebra).

The Cape mountain zebra (Equus zebra zebra) is a subspecies of mountain zebra endemic to South Africa. The Cape mountain zebra experienced near extinction in the early 1900's and their numbers have since recovered to more than 4,800 individuals. However, there are still threats to their long-term persistence. A previous study reported that Cape mountain zebra had low genetic diversity in three relict populations and that urgent conservation management actions were needed to mitigate the risk of further loss...

Non-medical prescribing in the United Kingdom National Health Service: A systematic policy review.

Non-medical prescribing was introduced into the United Kingdom (UK) to improve patient care, through extending healthcare professionals' roles. More recent government health service policy focuses on the increased demand and the need for efficiency. This systematic policy review aimed to describe any changes in government policy position and the role that non-medical prescribing plays in healthcare provision.

Development of a two-photon fluorescent probe to monitor the changes of viscosity in living cells, zebra fish and mice.

The detection of viscosity is of great significance for medical research. Herein, we have developed a two-photon fluorescent probe CB-V for monitoring micro-viscosity changes. The fluorescence emission intensity of CB-V increased 9.6-fold from methanol to glycerol exhibiting an excellent fluorescence response. With excellent properties of CB-V, monitoring the viscosity variations has been achieved not only in living cells but also in zebra fish and mice.

Identification and characterization of primordial germ cells in a vocal learning Neoaves species, the zebra finch.

The zebra finch has been used as a valuable vocal learning animal model for human spoken language. It is representative of vocal learning songbirds specifically, which comprise half of all bird species, and of Neoaves broadly, which comprise 95% of all bird species. Although transgenesis in the zebra finch has been accomplished, it is with a very low efficiency of germ-line transmission and far from the efficiency with a more genetically tractable but vocal nonlearning species, the chicken (a Galloanserifor...

Comparative evaluation of the efficacy of using monocular, binocular and panoramic night vision goggles in successful venous access in darkness.

The use of night vision goggles (NVGs) by medical staff operating in active combat areas may present a tactical advantage in maintaining unit concealment. This study seeks to assess the degree to which NVG use improves speed and ease of intravenous access in comparison to no NVG use, and which NVG system (monocular, binocular or panoramic) provides the best conditions for the clinician.

A Common Approach to Low Vision: Examination and Rehabilitation of the Patient with Low Vision

Due to the increasing age of the global population, rates of visual disability are increasing. Visual rehabilitation is an effective method for increasing quality of life among individuals with low vision or blindness due to unpreventable or untreatable causes. The goal of low vision rehabilitation is to produce people who are independent, have an economically viable profession or skill, and are able to enjoy their lives. The stages of modern low vision rehabilitation include the intake interview, assessmen...

The experience and challenges of healthcare-reform-driven medical consortia and Regional Health Information Technologies in China: A longitudinal study.

To achieve universal access to medical resources-a partial goal of the second ambitious health reform since 2010-the Chinese government aimed to build a regional medical consortium and enhance the efficiency of health information exchange (HIE). We analyzed the experience of constructing a medical consortium in Chinese hospitals, which was based on regional health information technology (RHIT) promoted by HIE.

The Ban on US Government Funding Research Using Human Fetal Tissues: How Does This Fit with the NIH Mission to Advance Medical Science for the Benefit of the Citizenry?

Some have argued that human fetal tissue research is unnecessary and/or immoral. Recently, the Trump administration has taken the drastic--and we believe misguided--step to effectively ban government-funded research on fetal tissue altogether. In this article, we show that entire lines of research and their clinical outcomes would not have progressed had fetal tissue been unavailable. We argue that this research has been carried out in a manner that is ethical and legal, and that it has provided knowledge t...

Medical genetics and genomic medicine in Japan.

Since 1961, all Japanese citizens have belonged to one of the available medical care insurance systems. This "universal care" system has contributed to the maintenance of health: the life expectancy at birth was 84 years in 2016, and the infant mortality rate (the number of infants dying before reaching 1 year of age) was 2.0 per 1,000 live births, which is one of the lowest rates in the world. The Japanese government initiated the National Program on Rare and Intractable Diseases in 1972. This program ha...

A Review of Childhood Vision Screening Laws and Programs Across the United States.

Many organizations recommend childhood vision screenings. Furthermore, 42 out of 50 states in the U.S. have laws requiring these examinations looking for multiple ocular abnormalities that can lead to amblyopia, which has the potential to result in lifelong visual impairment. Currently, South Dakota is not a state with similar aforementioned law. The purpose of this research was to examine vision screening laws and programs across America to potentially provide a framework from which South Dakota could adop...

Generation of Stable Induced Pluripotent Stem-like Cells from Adult Zebra Fish Fibroblasts.

Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells provide a powerful platform for the study of development, regeneration, and disease. Although many stable iPS cell lines have been established for mammals, few attempts have been made to induce iPS cells in nonmammalian species. Because of technical advantages over other vertebrates on stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells from fish could be of value for research. In this paper, stable iPS-like cell lines were generated from adult zebra fish fibroblasts by combining...

gene has a very large effect on feed efficiency in lactating Israeli Holstein Cows.

Improving feed-efficiency (FE) is a major goal for the livestock industry. Previously, we have identified 48 SNP markers distributed over 32 genes, significantly associated with RFI in Israeli Holstein male claves, most significant of which located in the bovine gene. In the present study, we tested associations of 8 of the markers with RFI and FCR, along with other economic traits, in lactating Israeli Holstein cows. The effect of on FE in the Israeli Holstein breed was verified, with very large allele ...
