Exome Sequencing Identified Pathogenic Variants in Cerebral Palsy Patients

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people and over time. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors. More...

TFP Inhibitor Levels Elevated in Bleeding Tendency Patients

Mild to moderate bleeding disorders (MBDs) are characterized by symptoms such as epistaxis, easy bruising, or menorrhagia, but bleeding can also be severe under certain circumstances such as hemorrhage after surgery or birth. More...

Early Plasma Biomarkers Discovered for Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the predominant form of dementia and the most common neurodegenerative disorder. Advanced age and the presence of the ε4 allele of the apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) are the most relevant late‐onset sporadic AD‐promoting factors as they interact with the core mechanisms of this neurologic disorder. More...

TAP1 Gene Polymorphisms Associated with Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis

Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is a respiratory tract disease that affects children and adults and is characterized by the recurrent proliferation of multiple papillomas. The proliferation of multiple papillomas within the airway in RRP primarily affects the larynx. More...
