Prefoveal floaters as a differential diagnosis to optic neuritis: “mouches dormantes”

This case series describes a new optical coherence tomography (OCT) specific observation relevant to the differential diagnosis of patients with suspected optic neuritis. A tiny prefoveal floater, only detectable by OCT, was found responsible for the symptoms in three patients, one of whom had been referred with unilateral delayed visual evoked potentials. This case series suggests ...

A word of advice: how to tailor motivational text messages based on behavior change theory to personality and gender

Developing systems that motivate people to change their behaviors, such as an exercise application for the smartphone, is challenging. One solution is to implement motivational strategies from existing behavior change theory and tailor these strategies to preferences based on personal characteristics, like personality and gender. We operationalized strategies by collecting ...

Trajectories in quality of life of patients with a fracture of the distal radius or ankle using latent class analysis

Purpose This prospective study aimed to identify the different trajectories of quality of life (QOL) in patients with distal radius fractures (DRF) and ankle fractures (AF). Secondly, it was examined if subgroups could be characterized by sociodemographic, clinical, and psychological variables. Methods Patients (n = 543) completed the World Health Organization Quality of Life ...

Rapid Design of Knowledge-Based Scoring Potentials for Enrichment of Near-Native Geometries in Protein-Protein Docking

Protein-protein docking protocols aim to predict the structures of protein-protein complexes based on the structure of individual partners. Docking protocols usually include several steps of sampling, clustering, refinement and re-scoring. The scoring step is one of the bottlenecks in the performance of many state-of-the-art protocols. The performance of scoring functions depends ...

Fragment-based modelling of single stranded RNA bound to RNA recognition motif containing proteins

Protein-RNA complexes are important for many biological processes. However, structural modeling of such complexes is hampered by the high flexibility of RNA. Particularly challenging is the docking of single-stranded RNA (ssRNA). We have developed a fragment-based approach to model the structure of ssRNA bound to a protein, based on only the protein structure, the RNA sequence and ...

Binding Site Identification and Flexible Docking of Single Stranded RNA to Proteins Using a Fragment-Based Approach

Protein-RNA docking is hampered by the high flexibility of RNA, and particularly single-stranded RNA (ssRNA). Yet, ssRNA regions typically carry the specificity of protein recognition. The lack of methodology for modeling such regions limits the accuracy of current protein-RNA docking methods. We developed a fragment-based approach to model protein-bound ssRNA, based on the ...

Differential effects of the pharmacological stressor yohimbine on impulsive decision making and response inhibition

Rationale High levels of impulsivity have been associated with psychiatric disorders such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and substance abuse. In addition, acute stress is known to exacerbate many psychiatric symptoms in impulse control disorders. Objectives The purpose of the current study was to investigate the acute effects of the pharmacological stressor ...

The association between patient’s and partner’s fatigue in couples coping with colorectal cancer: a longitudinal study

Background Couples coping with colorectal cancer were monitored during the first year after diagnosis to evaluate the following: (i) levels of patients’ and partners’ fatigue—hereby comparing their scores to each other and a normative population, (ii) association between patients’ and partners’ fatigue, (iii) the course of partners’ fatigue, and (iv) biopsychosocial predictors of ...

LBD uses the context of design challenges to learn, ...

Ataxia, dystonia and myoclonus in adult patients with Niemann-Pick type C

Background Niemann-Pick type C (NP-C) is a rare autosomal recessive progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the NP-C 1 or 2 gene. Besides visceral symptoms, presentation in adolescent and adult onset variants is often with neurological symptoms. The most frequently reported presenting symptoms of NP-C in adulthood are psychiatric symptoms (38 %), cognitive ...
