Association of SORL1 Polymorphisms with the Risk of Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment in the Han Chinese Population

Lili Zhang, Xiaowei Liu, Bailing Wang, Qing Xu, Jianzhong Zhu, Feng Zhang and Chunhui Jin

Article Type: Communication | First Published: September 14, 2015

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is defined as the symptomatic predementia stage, characterized by cognitive impairment that is not severe enough to influence the usual activities of daily living. MCI is suggested to be a transitional state between healthy aging and clinically probable Alzheimer's disease (AD). Previous studies have identified that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the sortilin-related receptor, L (DLR class) A repeats containing (SORL1) gene are associated with amnestic ...

Bayesian Survival Analysis of Genetic Variants in PTPRN2 Gene for Age at Onset of Cancer

Ke-Sheng Wang, Yue Pan, Weize Wang and Chun Xu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 9, 2015

The protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type, N polypeptide 2 (PTPRN2) gene may play a role in cancer; however, no study has focused on the associations of genetic variants within the PTPRN2 gene with age at onset (AAO) of cancer. Methods: This study examined 220 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the PTPRN2 gene in the Marshfield sample with 716 cancer cases (any diagnosed cancer, excluding minor skin cancer) and 2,848 non-cancer controls. Multiple logistic regression model and li...

A Review of Graphical Approaches to Common Statistical Analyses. The Omnipresence of Latent Variables in Statistics

Emil N. Coman, L. Suzanne Suggs, Maria Coman and Eugen Iordache and Judith Fifield

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 4, 2015

We provide a comprehensive review of simple and advanced statistical analyses using an intuitive visual approach explicitly modeling Latent Variables (LV), likely to better illuminate what is assumed in each analytical method and what is actually estimated, by translating the causal relationships embedded in the graphical models in equation form. We recommend the graphical display rooted in the century old path analysis, that details all parameters of each statistical model, and suggest labeling...

Drug Treatment Comparison for Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Kevin Soderholm and Rhonda Magel

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 02, 2015

Data from over 2000 patients receiving knee replacement surgery was gathered from a hospital system in the Midwestern United States. The age group that each patient belonged to was noted, under age 65 or 65 years of age and older, as well as their gender. A variety of drugs in each of three drug categories was studied as to their association with total hospital cost, length of stay, prevalence of early readmissions and prevalence of blood transfusions. The drug categories included spinal blocks,...

Coexisting Normal- Tension Glaucoma and Deficiencies of Folic Acid and Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal)

Tetsuya Sugiyama

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 06, 2015

A 43-year-old man presented with bilateral visual field defect. Large disc cupping, retinal nerve fiber layer defect, and normal intraocular pressure were found in both eyes. Although the patient was prescribed an anti-glaucoma eye drop, the visual field defect deteriorated after two months of treatment. The patient was diagnosed with sensory, taste, and hearing impairments, as well as depression, caused by folic acid and vitamin B6 (pyridoxal) deficiencies at an internal medicine department. Th...

Topic: Acute Kidney Injury in Children: 3-Year Data Review from Ghana

Sampson Antwi, Anima Sarfo, Abigail Amoah, Anna Serwaa Appia and Esther Obeng

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 14, 2015

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a relatively common condition encountered in everyday paediatric practice. It remains a significant contributor to preventable deaths especially in resource constraint regions of the world largely due to lack of dialysis services. This 3-year data analysis (2010-2012) was undertaken to determine the aetiology and treatment/mortality outcomes of children with AKI presenting to a Teaching Hospital in Ghana. AKI was defined in this analysis by the RIFLE and KDIGO cri...

Hormonal Therapy for GI Angiodysplasia: Out of Hope After Failure of the Scope?

Ujjwal Kumar, Kevin Cowley and Frederick Weber

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 14, 2015

Angiodysplasia of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract can present both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Despite the recent advances in endoscopy, many patients continue to suffer from recurrent bleeding. We report a remarkable case of a multi-year history of transfusion-requiring obscure overt recurrent GI bleeding, refractory to multiple endoscopic therapies as well as both octreotide and thalidomide. Upon initiation of hormonal therapy, the patient's bleeding completely resolved, with comple...

Effect of Biologics on the Outcomes of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Retrospective Study on a Large Pediatric Cohort

Hoda M. Malatyr, Bincy Abraham, Mina S. Emil, George D. Ferry and Elizabeth A. Garnett

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 11, 2015

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children has increased over the past 20 years and treatment with biologics is increasingly used. Objective: We assessed the associations of biologics to IBD outcomes in children. Methods: A retrospective investigation was conducted on a cohort of children with IBD between 1988/2008 who were enrolled in the Pediatric IBD registry. The diagnosis of IBD was based on clinical, radiological, endoscopic, and/or histological examinations. Clini...

Prognostic Significance of Tumor Regression in Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer after Preoperative Radiochemotherapy

Potisek M, Velenik V and Omejc M

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 06, 2015

Colorectal cancer is one of the most important oncological issues worldwide. It is estimated that in 2012 1.4 millions of colorectal cancer patients were newly discovered, which accounts for 9,7% of newly diagnosed cancers. Almost 700 000 people died because of colorectal cancer in 2012, that is 8,5% of cancer-related deaths. Rectal cancer represents approximately one third of colorectal cancer....

New Onset Nephropathy in a Patient with Psoriatic Skin and Joint Disease

Savvas Psarelis, Sophia Corsava, Kyriakos Polycarpou, Kyriakos Ioannou, Ioanna Zouvani and Elena Nikiphorou

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 05, 2015

We present the case of a 38-year-old male patientwho presented with new onset nephropathy on a background of psoriatic skin and joint disease. The pathogenesis and link between nephropathy with psoriatic disease is discussed, along with potential diagnostic and management challenges. This case highlights that nephropathy in psoriatic skin and joint disease can and does occur and high vigilance is necessary especially in patients taking potentially nephrotoxic drugs. The complexity of these cases...
