BACKGROUND: Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is widely thought to be characterized by heightened behavioral and limbic reactivity to socio-emotional stimuli. However, although behavioral findings are clear, neural findings are surprisingly mixed. METHODS: Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we examined behavioral and brain responses in a priori emotion generative regions ...

The provision of psychiatric treatment via live interactive videoconferencing, frequently termed telepsychiatry, is a viable option for psychiatrists to provide care to individual patients, populations, and communities faced with limited access and to move the point of care delivery into patients' living environments. Psychiatric providers new to videoconferencing should not ...

Abstract Orbital dermoid cyst is a rare cause of orbital tumor in the adult population. Most of the orbital dermoids are extraconal, arising adjacent to bone suture and occurring in the pediatric patients. Deep orbital dermoid cyst located entirely intraconally is extremely rare. We report a case of intraconal orbital ...

Abstract Background. The diagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is already difficult, and that of AIH with chronic viral hepatitis including hepatitis B (HBV) or hepatitis C (HCV) is even more challenging. To date, only a few case-based studies have described this association. Aims. The aim was to retrospectively assess diagnostic ...

Abstract The neuropeptide Y system is known to be involved in the regulation of many central physiological and pathophysiological processes, such as energy homeostasis, obesity, cancer, mood disorders and epilepsy. Four Y receptor subtypes have been cloned from human tissue (hY1, hY2, hY4 and hY5) which form a multiligand/ multireceptor ...

We recently developed a novel cognitive enhancer, ST101 (spiro[imidazo[1,2-a] pyridine-3,2-indan]-2(3H)-one), that activates T-type voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). Here, we address whether T-type VGCC activation with ST101 mediates its cognitive effects in vivo and the relevance of T-type VGCC activation to acetylcholine (ACh) release in the hippocampus. Acute intraperitoneal administration of ...

The optimum cementing technique for the tibial component in cemented primary total knee replacement (TKR) remains controversial. The technique of cementing, the volume of cement and the penetration are largely dependent on the operator, and hence large variations can occur. Clinical, experimental and computational studies have been performed, with conflicting ...

There is growing evidence that the p53 tumour suppressor downregulates vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear and controversial. Here we provide insights from in vitro experiments and in vivo xenotransplantation assays that highlight a dual role for p53 in regulating VEGF during hypoxia. Unexpectedly, ...

Evidence suggests that brainstem involvement in multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the major predictive factors for future disability. Recent work demonstrates that brainstem pathology is more frequent than can be depicted either clinically or with the use of MRI. Evoked potentials have been shown to reliably predict disability in ...

BACKGROUND: CD133 was recently reported to be a cancer stem cell marker and a prognostic marker for several tumors. However, few studies have investigated CD133 expression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Therefore, we examined whether CD133 could serve as a prognostic marker of ESCC and investigated the correlation between ...

Enhanced survival mechanisms of malignant cells in combination with elevated levels of drug transporters can sustain an undesirable resistance against drug therapy. Short interfering RNA (siRNA) delivery against targets involved in aberrant mechanisms is a promising approach and we hypothesize that simultaneous silencing of multiple targets could prove more advantageous ...

Genomic selection, a breeding method that promises to accelerate rates of genetic gain, requires dense, genome-wide marker data. Genotyping-by-sequencing can generate a large number of markers. However, without a reference genome, these markers are unordered and typically have a large proportion of missing data. Because marker imputation algorithms were developed ...

Anorectal soft tissue tumors are uncommon and often present both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Although many of these tumors are identified with imaging performed for unrelated reasons, most present with nonspecific symptoms that can lead to a delay in diagnosis. Historically, radical surgery (abdominoperineal resection) has been the mainstay of ...
