Medicine Ji Y, Kang C et. al.

Jun 24th, 2021 - Autosomal dominant hypocalcaemia type 1 (ADH1) is a genetic disease characterized by benign hypocalcemia, inappropriately low parathyroid hormone levels and mostly hypercalciuria. It is caused by the activating mutations of the calcium-sensing receptor gene (CASR), which produces a left-shift in the set point for extracellular calcium. A 50-year-old man presenting with muscle spasms was admitte...

Jun 9th, 2021 - Congenital factor XIII (FXIII) deficiency is one of the rarest bleeding disorders, with an incidence of one per 2 million persons. Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), a major cause of mortality in FXIII deficiency, is reported to be associated with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1). Therefore, we investigated the association of VEGF and TSP-1 expression and methy...
