We describe reconstructive surgeries, therapy, prostheses, and adaptations for a patient who experienced bilateral amputation of all five fingers of both hands through the proximal phalanges in January 1992. The patient made considerable progress in the use of his hands in the 10 mo after amputation, including nearly a 120% ...

We examined the effect that long-handled shoehorn (LHSH) length and body mass index (BMI) have on hip range of motion (ROM) in female adults. Thirty-eight female participants were asked to don a shoe using 18-, 24-, and 30-in. LHSHs. Significant differences in hip flexion were found between the 18- and ...

A single-subject design was used to assess the effectiveness of therapy ball chairs on classroom participation in 6 boys with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The sensory processing pattern of each participant was assessed using the Sensory Processing Measure. Data on in-seat behavior and engagement were collected using digital video recordings ...

OBJECTIVE. Our objectives were (1) to quantify arm-hand use of older adults without a disability and to determine the effects of hand dominance, gender, and day on hand usage and (2) to determine the factors that predict arm-hand use. This information will enhance understanding of the extent of the client's ...

The BTB domain is a protein-protein interaction motif found throughout eukaryotes. Here we report the identification of two closely related BTB domain-containing proteins, P027BTB CONTAIN ING-PROTEIN 1 (POB1) and POB2, as negative regulators of defense against pathogens. In yeast two-hybrid assays, POB1 and POB2 dimerize through their BTB domains. The ...

We conducted a transplant experiment to address aspects of the contrasting ecological performance of three forest ferns with similar habitat preferences: Dryopteris carthusiana (Vill.) H.P. Fuchs (common in Estonia), Dryopteris expansa (C. Presl) Fraser-Jenkins & Jenny (less common in Estonia), and Dryopteris dilatata (Hoffm.) A. Gray (rare in Estonia). Sporophytes ...

Traits have been widely used in plant ecology to understand the rules governing community assembly, and to characterize primary strategies that define community structure and ecosystem properties. Relatively little is known as to whether the traits that are ecologically important at macroecological scales are either variable, or of consequence at ...

Local skin reactions to subcutaneous injections of interferon beta (IFNB) or glatiramer acetate (GA) in multiple sclerosis (MS) are frequent, while severe cutaneous toxicity is rare. Both IFNB and GA are immunomodulatory drugs that have excellent safety profiles and are currently used for treatment of MS. They are administered by ...
Arnason, B.G.W. - - 2010
At its final meeting, the MS Forum Executive Committee reviewed highlights of where things stood prior to the immunomodulatory era, and how things have evolved subsequently. What the future might hold was discussed in a second session. Prior to 1990: Genetic predisposition to multiple sclerosis (MS), as determined by human ...
Vitali, S.A. - - 2010
The ability to cope emotionally and experience quality of life (QoL) do not appear to be correlated with severity of disease or disability amongst people with multiple sclerosis (MS). An exploration of the health-related literature (trauma, chronic illness, disability, loss) from a resiliency perspective identifies a constellation of variables: personality ...
Das, T. - - 2010
Since multiple sclerosis (MS) has its onset at a young age, it is valuable to know how it affects life plans and future perspectives of patients. Through two narratives, this aspect is discussed in this article. The first is the autobiographical journal: The Journal of a Disappointed Man by WNP ...

The understory shrub Lindera benzoin L. experiences lower rates of herbivory in sun environments than in shade environments. The production of secondary metabolites (e.g., phenolic compounds with known plant defense properties) is one likely contributor to these observed differences in herbivory. This work determined the total phenolic content as well ...
Yoshimura, Kenichi - - 2010
Rhododendron reticulatum D. Don ex G.Don is a common understory shrub in western Japan that exhibits highly plastic crown architecture and occurs in various light environments. I investigated how functional differentiation and spatial distribution of long and short shoots contribute to the plasticity of crown architecture of R. reticulatum. Crown ...

Trees owe their growth in girth to cambial activity that gives rise to secondary conducting tissues. Since cambium originates from the primary vascular meristem, called procambium, the main objective of the present study was to analyse the changes occurring during transition from procambium to cambium in Diospyros lotus L., characterized ...
Reid, J. - - 2010
A new species, Ceratocystis norvegica J. Reid & Hausner sp. nov., is described from Norway. Based on morphological criteria and analyses of rDNA internal transcribed spacer and small subunit rDNA sequences, strains collected from galleries of the bark beetle Ips typographus on Picea abies (L.) H. Karst, were shown to ...

The RET proto-oncogene (REarranged during Transfection; RET] plays an important role in the causation of many thyroid tumours. Germline RET proto-oncogene missense mutations have been clearly linked to medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and the inherited cancer syndrome multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2A, MEN2B).
