Summarizes a study by P.J. Stasikelis, et al, in the 1996 issue of the periodical `Journal of the Bone Joint Surg. Am.,' volume 78, that examined the increased risk of development of a slip in the contralateral hip, in children with unilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Background on...
- Meta-analysis of gene expression profiles to predict response to biologic agents in rheumatoid arthritis. Lee, Young; Bae, Sang-Cheol; Song, Gwan // Clinical Rheumatology;Jun2014, Vol. 33 Issue 6, p775
Our aim was to identify differentially expressed (DE) genes and biological processes that may help predict patient response to biologic agents for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Using the INMEX (integrative meta-analysis of expression data) software tool, we performed a meta-analysis of publicly...
- Coding and Noncoding Gene Expression Biomarkers in Mood Disorders and Schizophrenia. Mamdani, Firoza; Martin, Maureen V.; Lencz, Todd; Rollins, Brandi; Robinson, Delbert G.; Moon, Emily A.; Malhotra, Anil K.; Vawter, Marquis P. // Disease Markers;2013, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p11
Mood disorders and schizophrenia are common and complex disorders with consistent evidence of genetic and environmental influences on predisposition. It is generally believed that the consequences of disease, gene expression, and allelic heterogeneity may be partly the explanation for the...
