Correlation between Pentraxin-3 and Left Ventricular Diastolic Dysfunction in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Jie-Ru Li, Xiu-Hua Gao, Ju-Qiang Han, Wen-Yan Luo and En-Sheng Ji

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 23, 2018

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of independent dangerous factors for cardiovascular disease including heart failure. Recent studies demonstrated that left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) and pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) are early signs for development of heart failure. The objective of our study was to estimate the relation between OSA severity and LVDD and PTX-3. Sixty-six OSA patients and 2...

HLA DRB1*/DQA1*Alleles and TNF-alpha G308A Polymorphism Protect against Neuromyelitis Optica in the Cuban Population

Fernandez-de-Cossio ME, Cintado A, Nazabal M, Camacho H, Diaz T, Villarreal A, Ale M, Grass D, Cervantes-Llanos M, Pavon-Fuentes N, Benitez JV, Cabrera-Gomez JA, Diaz de la Fe A and Penton-Rol G

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 23, 2018

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a complex immune-mediated disease whose prevalence differs among ethnic groups, most likely due to genetic factors. The presence of the Human Leucocyte Antigens (HLA) extended haplotype is a risk for NMO. The tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) is believed to play a role in NMO pathogenesis. Although single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TNF-a promoter region (pTNF-a) has been shown to influence levels of TNF-a production, such an association is not evident in the Cuban population. The aim of this study was to examine the association between the HLA allele...

Cheryl A Frye, Anton Hardy and Maria Lifrak

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 22, 2018

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) can result in physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms and the constellation of sequelae that can linger for years and is termed post-concussion syndrome (PCS). For these ailments, therapy is available to help individuals recover; however, it is controversial whether cognitive rehabilitation can improve or forestall lost or damaged abilities.

Employing Kinect for Cognitive-Motor Assessment: A Feasibility Study

Uzi Levi, Roni Laslo-Roth and Eyal Rosenstreich

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 21, 2018

This study examined the feasibility of the Microsoft Kinect sensor for assessing mediolateral trunk sway and its associations with cognitive abilities. To this end, young adults and elderlies were sampled and performed various gait and balance tasks under single- and dual-task paradigms. Although reliable, Kinect's ability to assess cognition through movement was not conclusive. Specifically, the ...
