Abstract The inflammatory response is an immune defense engaged immediately after injury or infection. Chronic inflammation can be deleterious for various health outcomes and is characterized by high levels of pro-inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP), cytokines interleukin 6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α). A large body… read more →
Abstract Background: Childhood hearing impairment affects language and cognitive development. Profound congenital sensorineural hearing impairment can be due to an abnormal cochleovestibular nerve (CVN) and cochleovestibular malformations, however, the etiology of these conditions remains unclear. Methods: We used a trio‐based exome sequencing approach to unravel the underlying molecular etiology of… read more →
Article Abstract Recent studies of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) have resulted in conflicting conclusions regarding the comorbidity of these disorders on phenotypic grounds. In a nuclear family with two dually affected and one unaffected offspring, whole-exome sequences were evaluated for single nucleotide and indel… read more →
Article Abstract Within the over 70 reported transforming growth factor-beta–induced (TGFBI) corneal dystrophy mutations,1more than 40 are associated with lattice corneal dystrophy (LCD), subtypes I, III, IIIA, and IIIB according to the Human Gene Mutation Database (QIAGEN, Hilden, Germany). This is a follow-up investigation to a study we published in… read more →
