Gene variant identified for Kawasaki disease susceptibility
Feb 09, 2017
Researchers have conducted novel whole genome sequencing of a family in which 2 of 4 children were affected by Kawasaki disease, and have identified plausible gene variants that predispose some children to developing the disease. The findings are published in the PLOS ONE.
Research identifies a molecular basis for common congenital brain defect
Dec 13, 2016
Scientists have discovered a molecular cause of hydrocephalus. Because the same molecule is also implicated in Down syndrome, the finding, published today in the Journal of Neuroscience, may explain the 10-fold increased risk of hydrocephalus in infants born with Down syndrome.
Most physicians recognize shaken baby syndrome as a medical diagnosis
Aug 16, 2016
A University of Colorado School of Medicine researcher and colleagues have conducted the first-ever survey of physicians on the validity of "abusive head trauma" as a medical diagnosis, due to recent controversy on the subject. The survey results provide empiric data that clearly support the conclusion that shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma are generally accepted as valid medical diagnoses by a broad range of medical specialists.
