An RGS-Containing Sorting Nexin Controls Drosophila Lifespan

The pursuit of eternal youth has existed for centuries and recent data indicate that fat-storing tissues control lifespan. In a D. melanogaster fat body insertional mutagenic enhancer trap screen designed to isolate genes that control longevity, we identified a regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) domain containing sorting nexin, termed snazarus (sorting nexin lazarus, snz...

Unsuspected, Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis without Maternofetal Morbidity Diagnosed by Placental Examination: Case Report and Review of the Literature

Historically, untreated disseminated coccidioidomycosis during pregnancy was thought to be associated with 100% maternal fatality and 50% fetal mortality and was the leading cause of maternal deaths in areas of endemicity. As recently as 1995, therapeutic abortions and early deliveries were advocated in certain contexts. This report describes an unrecognized case of disseminated...

Leukemia Risk and Occupational Electric Field Exposure County, California in Los Angeles

The authors analyzed data on electric fields from a prior study of occupational magnetic field exposure and leukemia risk conducted in Los Angeles County, California, in 1972–1990. Ranking of exposure differed somewhat for magnetic and electric fields. The odds ratios were 1.22 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.80–1.86) and 1.15 (95% confidence interval 0.78–1.72) for medium and...

Obesity and the Risk of Newly Diagnosed Asthma in School-age Children

To determine the relation between obesity and new-onset asthma among school-age children, the authors examined longitudinal data from 3,792 participants in the Children’s Health Study (Southern California) who were asthma-free at enrollment. New cases of physician-diagnosed asthma, height, weight, lung function, and risk factors for asthma were assessed annually at five school...

Residential Magnetic Field Exposure and Breast Cancer Risk: A Nested Case-Control Study from a Multiethnic Cohort in Los Angeles County, California

Some experimental and epidemiologic evidence suggests that residential exposure to power-frequency magnetic fields can increase breast cancer risk. This association was investigated in a nested case-control study of female breast cancer within a cohort of African Americans, Latinas, and Caucasians in Los Angeles County, California. Incident breast cancer was ascertained from 1993...
