Markers of Defective Membrane Remodelling in Scott-like Syndromes

2014-08-27 03:32:51 | BioPortfolio


Purpose: Identification of the gene(s) involved in plasma membrane remodelling. Identification of the circulating markers affected by the defective membrane remodelling in a collection of families with unexplained provoked hemorrhages and evaluation of their prognosis value in the assessment of the hemostatic cellular response.Hypothesis: Scott syndrome is rare a familial disorder characterized by provoked haemorrages in homozygous-type patients due to isolated membrane remodelling deficiency. Membrane remodelling is necessary for cellular hemostatic responses.

Idiopathic isolated fibrotic atrial cardiomyopathy underlies unexplained scar-related atrial tachycardia in younger patients.

Unexplained scar-related atrial tachycardia (AT) has been frequently encountered in clinical practice. We hypothesized that idiopathic, isolated fibrotic atrial cardiomyopathy (ACM) underlies this rhy...

Increased insulin resistance in men with unexplained infertility.

This prospective case-control study aimed to test the presence of insulin resistance (IR) in men with unexplained infertility. We included two groups: the study group including 160 infertile men with ...

Is this blood? An ERP study on the visual identification of red fluids in patients with blood phobia.

Blood can be easily recognized in situations involving injury. However, very little is known about the ability of humans to identify blood without such context information. We investigated the blood d...

Using the Sophia Observational Withdrawal Scale improved the assessment of paediatric iatrogenic withdrawal symptoms.

Analgesia and sedation are standard practice when paediatric intensive care patients receive mechanical ventilation. Prolonged exposure to opioid and benzodiazepine leads to an increased risk of withd...

Reversibility of peripheral blood leukocyte phenotypic and functional changes after exposure to and withdrawal from tofacitinib, a Janus kinase inhibitor, in healthy volunteers.

This study evaluated the short-term effects of tofacitinib treatment on peripheral blood leukocyte phenotype and function, and the reversibility of any such effects following treatment withdrawal in h...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persistent health symptoms which remain unexplained after a complete medical evaluation. A cluster of symptoms that consistently appear together but without a known cause are referred to as a MEDICALLY UNEXPLAINED SYNDROME (MUS).

Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.

Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.

The abrupt and unexplained death of an apparently healthy infant under one year of age, remaining unexplained after a thorough case investigation, including performance of a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene, and review of the clinical history. (Pediatr Pathol 1991 Sep-Oct;11(5):677-84)

Repetitive withdrawal of small amounts of blood and replacement with donor blood until a large proportion of the blood volume has been exchanged. Used in treatment of fetal erythroblastosis, hepatic coma, sickle cell anemia, disseminated intravascular coagulation, septicemia, burns, thrombotic thrombopenic purpura, and fulminant malaria.
