Feb 4th, 2023 - Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a serious eye disease in preterm infants. Generally, the progression of this disease can be detected by screening infants regularly. In case of progression, treatment can be instituted to stop the progression. In Indonesia, however, not all infants are screened because the number of pediatric ophthalmologists trained to screen for ROP and provide treatment is...

Feb 4th, 2023 - Optimal donor selection is fundamental to successful allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), and donor age influences survival after both matched unrelated donor (MUD) and haploidentical donor HCT. Though recent studies have shown similar outcomes between MUD and haploidentical HCT, it is unknown if outcomes differ following HCT with younger haploidentical donors compared to HCT wi...

Feb 4th, 2023 - Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is acquired early in life as asymptomatic or symptomatic infectious mononucleosis (IM) and remains latent in a few B cells in most individuals. Pathologic EBV-reactivation affects immunosuppressed individuals and manifests as IM-like syndromes, polyclonal lymphoproliferative disorders, EBV-related lymphomas, and carcinomas. EBV-associated gastritis is an underrecognized...

Feb 4th, 2023 - Filamin A, encoded by the X-linked gene FLNA, links the cell membrane with the cytoskeleton and acts as a regulator of the actin cytoskeleton. Mutations in FLNA cause a large spectrum of congenital malformations during embryonic development, including Melnick-Needles syndrome (MNS). However, reports of MNS, especially in males, are rare, and the pathogenesis molecular mechanisms are not well un...

Feb 4th, 2023 - Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a hereditary skeletal disorder that is mainly caused by variants in COL1A1/2. So far, no specific treatment has been developed to correct its underlying etiology. We aimed to gain a better understanding of the pathological mechanisms of OI and develop gene editing techniques to correct OI-causing variants. A de novel cis-double-variant c.[175C>T;187T>A] in COL1A1...

Feb 4th, 2023 - Cardiomyopathy is a progressive disease of the myocardium leading to impaired contractility. Genotoxic cancer therapies are known to be potent drivers of cardiomyopathy, whereas causes of spontaneous disease remain unclear. To test the hypothesis that endogenous genotoxic stress contributes to cardiomyopathy, we deleted the DNA repair gene Ercc1 specifically in striated muscle using a floxed al...
