Replacing CFTR Sanger Sequencing in the Clinical Lab with a Reliable, Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing Assay

Shela Lee, Joy Radecki, Hsiao-Mei Lu, and Aaron M. Elliott

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 05, 2014

The clinical implementation of new target enrichment methods and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has rapidly transformed genetic testing. Diagnostic labs can now offer a wide variety of large comprehensive multi-gene panels or even full exome sequencing to help clinicians diagnose and treat patients. The unmatched sensitivity, accuracy and throughput of NGS compared to traditional Sanger sequencing make it an ideal technology not only for panels but also high volume single gene assay...

Correlation of Killer Immunoglobulin like Receptor Genes with the Rate of Cytomegalovirus Infection in Renal Transplantation Cases

Tejendra Singh Chauhan, Swayam Prakash, Raj Kumar Sharma and Suraksha Agrawal

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 04, 2014

Aim: Immune mechanisms of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection suggest a possible relationship between CMV with development of acute graft rejection. Current immune suppression impairs antiviral specifi T-cell immunity in solid organ transplantation. Inhibitory/ activating NK receptor bindings activated by self HLA antigens confront allogeneic cells that lack a ligand for specifi receptor. KIR ligand incompatibility caused due to presence/absence of KIR receptor in recipient and corresponding HLA lig...

Status of Bilateral Cochlear Implantation in Malaysia

Tan SN and Saim L

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 22, 2014

Advantages of bilateral Cochlear Implantation (CI) over unilateral implantation in individuals with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss are well established. In most developed countries, cochlear implant recipients receive full funding for bilateral implantation. In Malaysia, we have been advocating bilateral implantation since 2003.Our objective is to review all cases of unilateral & bilateral implantation that used the Cochlear Nucleus implants (Cochlear Ltd. Australia) and determine...

Expanding Access to Higher Education for Rural, Latina/o Students: Lessons from a Pilot Distance Degree Program in Family Science

Morteza Alibakhshi Kenari

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 12, 2014

Latina/o students in rural communities face unique challenges in their efforts to pursue a 4-year college degree. I describe a 2+2 pilot program in which a large land grant university partnered with a rural community college to offer a distance Bachelor of Science degree in family studies and human development. In this program, students located near the community college attend courses both on that campus and virtually at the partnering university. I address specific experiences and lessons lear...

Involvement of Regucalcin in Lipid Metabolic Disorder and Diabetes

Masayoshi Yamaguchi

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: October 03, 2014

Obesity and diabetes are currently a major health problem worldwide with growing in prevalence. The incidence of metabolic disease, including type 2 diabetes with obesity, is increased to epidemic levels. Obesity and diabetes induce secondary diseases with various pathophysiologic states, which are important in clinical aspects including cardiovascular disease, neural disturbance, kidney disease, osteoporosis and cancer. Obesity is based on stimulation of adipogenesis. Bone marrow mesenchymal st...

Heterogeneity and Diversity of Cancer Stem Cells in Glioblastoma

N. Sumru Bayin and Dimitris G. Placantonakis

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: August 13, 2014

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and deadly primary brain malignancy, with an annual incidence of over 10,000 new cases in the US and a median survival of 14-16 months. The current standard of care includes surgical resection followed by postoperative radiotherapy and treatment with the alkylating agent temozolamide. Sadly, prognosis for GBM patients has increased only incrementally and rather marginally over the past half century. The fact that GBM has lagged behind other solid malignancie...

Association of XmnI (-158 γG) Polymorphism and Response to Hydroxyurea in Omani S/S and S/β Patients

Hassan SM, Al Muslahi M, Al Riyami M, Bakker E, Harteveld CL and Giordano PC

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 26, 2014

Objective: To describe the effect of Hydroxyurea (HU) treatment in Omani Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) patients with different beta-globin gene cluster haplotypes. Materials and methods: A total of 52 cases treated with HU were enrolled in this study. Response to the drug was compared between patients with and without the XmnI polymorphism in the different betaglobin gene cluster haplotypes. We have classified our cohort into three categories: good responders to HU for those patients who had no cr...

Therapeutic Significance of Frequency of Deep Brain Stimulation in Intractable Epilepsy

Alok Gupta and Harinder Jaseja

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: September 30, 2014

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is emerging as a viable alternative therapy in intractable epilepsy (IE), and although the exact mechanism and electrophysiology of its action remain elusive, some neuroscientists even believe that DBS may in near future become a first line treatment for the patients with IE who are not suitable candidates for epilepsy brain surgery. In addition to the exact placement of electrodes in the target site, the successful outcome of DBS depends largely upon correct choice ...

Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease: An Inherited Leukodystrophy Natural History Studies in Understanding Neurogenetic Disorders

Jeremy J. Laukka

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: September 29, 2014

More than a century ago, in 1885 Friedrich Pelizaeus, a German Physician first identified a genetic disorder in five boys in a single family with nystagmus, spasticity of the limbs and developmental delay. Twenty-five years later in 1910, Ludwig Merzbacher independently reexamined this family and described further the neuropathology of 14 affected individuals and found that all affected members shared a common ancestor. Together, Pelizaeus and Merzbacher identified the exclusive X-linked inherit...

Objectives: To investigate the impact of variant histologic patterns of urothelialcarcinoma of the bladder on oncological outcomes of patients treated with Radical Cystectomy (RC). Three histologic patterns were evaluated: Urothelial Carcinoma (UC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), and urothelial carcinoma with Squamous Differentiation (SqD). Materials and methods: Retrospective archival study included 258 patients treated with RCfor muscle-invasive carcinoma. Data were reviewed in demographic a...
