Into the redox control: N-acetyl-cysteine pleiotropic effects from the laboratory to clinical applications
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Acupuncture and Related Therapies
Publication date: February 2014 Source:Acupuncture and Related Therapies, Volume 2, Issue 1 Author(s): Tiziana Parasassi , Roberto Brunelli , Ewa K. Krasnowska , Thomas Lundeberg , Eugenia Pittaluga , Maria Concetta Romano Increasing evidences attribute a central role to oxidation/reduction (redox) homeostasis in controlling cell physiology, with redox transitions of glutathione and sensitive cysteines in protein constituting the major players. Thiol redox control of protein activity and gene expression ultimately extends to the proliferation/differentiation switch. Several diseases, including the highest causes of mortality, have been attributed to a shift toward a more oxidized environment. Interfering with thiol redox transitions in diseases therefore appears a major clinical objectiv...

Trigeminal nerve agenesis with absence of foramina rotunda in Gómez–López–Hernández syndrome
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal of Medical Genetics Part A
In this report, a 10‐month‐old white female born at 37 weeks gestational age with GLHS underwent a contrast‐enhanced CT for the evaluation of craniofacial dysmorphic features. Thin‐section bone algorithm images showed absence of bilateral foramina rotunda and trigeminal nerve fibers. The maxillary branch of the trigeminal nerve passes through the foramen rotundum and carries sensory information from the face. This case is unique because trigeminal nerve absence has not been suggested as a possible etiology for trigeminal anesthesia associated with GLHS. It is not known how many cases of GLHS have agenesis of the trigeminal nerve; however, a review of the literature suggests that this patient is the first. The triad of RS, alopecia, and trigeminal anesthesia is specific to GLHS; the...

Age-Related Hair Changes in Men: Mechanisms and Management of Alopecia and Greying
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Maturitas
The hair follicle is a unique structure in that it undergoes continuous cycles of growth (anagen), resorption (catagen), and rest (telogen) from birth until death. During anagen, each individual hair follicle produces a new hair shaft. The size, length and pigment of the hair shaft vary depending on the location on the body and can change under the influence of biologic signals. The reason for the relative abundance of scalp hair compared to body hair in humans is not completely understood. Perhaps because of this prominence, the appearance of human scalp hair is often tied to perceptions of youth and virility, especially in men. (Source: Maturitas)

First Japanese case of atypical progeroid syndrome/atypical Werner syndrome with heterozygous LMNA mutation
Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Journal of Dermatology
We report the first Japanese case of APS/AWS with a LMNA mutation (p.D300N). A 53‐year‐old Japanese man had a history of recurrent severe cardiovascular diseases as well as brain infarction and hemorrhages. Although our APS/AWS patient had overlapping features with Werner syndrome (WS), such as high‐pitched voice, scleroderma, lipoatrophy and atherosclerosis, several cardinal features of WS, including short stature, premature graying/alopecia, cataract, bird‐like face, flat feet, hyperkeratosis on the soles and diabetes mellitus, were absent. In immunofluorescence staining and electron microscopic analyses of the patient's cultured fibroblasts, abnormal nuclear morphology, an increase in small aggregation of heterochromatin and a decrease in interchromatin granules in nuclei of fib...

Hypothyroid symptoms and the likelihood of overt thyroid failure: a population-based case-control study.
Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:45:05 +0100 | European Journal of Endocrinology
CONCLUSIONS: None of the individual symptoms of hypothyroidism had high LRs or DORs. Thus, neither the presence nor absence of any individual hypothyroidism symptom was reliable in the decision making of who should have their thyroid function tested. Therefore, even minor suspicion should lead to a blood test.
