Major Ice Cream Recalls Raise Questions About Listeria Contamination
WASHINGTON (AP) — Major recalls from two well-known ice cream companies due to the discovery of listeria bacteria raise questions about how the pathogen could have contaminated multiple ice cream manufacturing plants — and whether the discoveries are related. Blue Bell Creameries of Texas and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams of Ohio — extremely popular brands in their home states — took all their products off shelves this week. Blue Bell ice cream is linked to 10 illnesses in four states, including three deaths. There are no known illnesses linked to the Jeni's recall, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Pr...

MicroRNAs Promote Granule Cell Expansion in the Cerebellum Through Gli2
Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of cerebellar function and homeostasis. Their deregulation results in cerebellar neuronal degeneration and spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 and contributes to medulloblastoma. Canonical miRNA processing involves Dicer, which cleaves precursor miRNAs into mature double-stranded RNA duplexes. In order to address the role of miRNAs in cerebellar granule cell precursor development, loxP-flanked exons of Dicer1 were conditionally inactivated using the granule cell precursor-specific Atoh1-Cre recombinase. A reduction of 87 % in Dicer1 transcript was achieved in this co...

Prenatal diagnosis of giant cardiac rhabdomyoma in tuberous sclerosis complex: a new therapeutic option with everolimus
We describe a prenatally diagnosed case of giant rhabdomyoma, due to right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, which presented as a duct‐dependent lesion. Postnatal treatment with the mTOR inhibitor everolimus initiated significant regression of the cardiac tumor. This finding suggests that mTOR inhibitor therapy is an option for giant rhabdomyomas that develop in the neonatal period. Copyright © 2014 ISUOG. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Thoracoscopic repair of a large neonatal congenital diaphragmatic hernia using Gerota's fascia
Abstract A large congenital diaphragmatic hernia needing patch repair has a high risk of recurrence. Thus, managing these large congenital diaphragmatic hernias under thoracoscopy has become a problem. Here, a large congenital diaphragmatic hernia that was repaired using Gerota's fascia under thoracoscopy is reported. In the present case, it was impossible to close the hernia directly under thoracoscopy because the hernia was too large. Gerota's fascia was raised up by the left kidney and used for the repair. The left colon adhering to Gerota's fascia was mobilized, and a large space was made under thoracoscopy. Gerota's f...

Carrey , Elke Zameitat It is timely to consider the many facets of the small molecule orotic acid (OA), which is well-known as an essential intermediate of pyrimidine de novo synthesis. In addition, it can be taken up by erythrocytes and hepatocytes for conversion into uridine and for use in the pyrimidine recycling pathway. We discuss the link between dietary orotate and fatty liver in rats, and the potential for the alleviation of neonatal bilirubinaemia. We address the development of orota...

Physiology of the fetal and transitional circulation
The fetal circulation is an entirely transient event, not replicated at any point in later life, and functionally distinct from the pediatric and adult circulations. Understanding of the physiology of the fetal circulation is vital for accurate interpretation of hemodynamic assessments in utero, but also for management of circulatory compromise in premature infants, who begin extrauterine life before the fetal circulation has finished its maturation. This review summarizes the key classical components of circulatory physiology, as well as some of the newer concepts of physiology that have been appreciated in recent years. ...

Neurodevelopmental outcome at 36 months in very low birth weight premature infants with MR diffuse excessive high signal intensity (DEHSI) of cerebral white matter
Conclusions DEHSI in VLBW infants is a MR finding poorly defined with conventional T2 MRI. The presence of T2 hyperintensities weakly correlates with ADC, and ADC values are not associated with the neurological long-term outcome at 3 years, demonstrating that DEHSI should not be considered as a WM disease.

Flaxseed mitigates brain mass loss, improving motor hyperactivity and spatial memory, in a rodent model of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy
This study aimed to investigate the possible neuroprotective effect of maternal intake of flaxseed, rich in DHA׳s precursor α-linolenic acid, in the young male offspring subjected to perinatal HI. Wistar rats were divided in six groups, according to maternal diet and offspring treatment at day 7: Control HI (CHI) and Flaxseed HI (FHI); Control Sham and Flaxseed Sham; Control Control and Flaxseed Control. Flaxseed diet increased offspring׳s hippocampal DHA content and lowered depressive behavior. CHI pups presented brain mass loss, motor hyperactivity and poor spatial memory, which were improved in FHI rats. Maternal fla...

Hyperoxia Depletes (6)-5,6,7,8-Tetrahydrobiopterin Levels in the Neonatal Retina
Retinopathy of prematurity is a sight-threatening complication of premature birth caused by nitro-oxidative insult to the developing retinal vasculature during therapeutic hyperoxia exposure and later ischemia-induced neovascularization on supplemental oxygen withdrawal. In the vasodegenerative phase, during hyperoxia, defective endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS) produces reactive oxygen and nitrogen free radicals rather than vasoprotective nitric oxide for unclear reasons. More important, NOS critically depends on the availability of the cofactor (6R)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4). (Source: American Journal of Pathology)

Phylogenetic Analysis of the Spike (S) Gene of the New Variants of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea Virus in Taiwan
Summary New variants of porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV), which emerged in Taiwan in late 2013, have caused a high morbidity and mortality in neonatal piglets. To investigate the molecular characteristics of the spike (S) gene of the emerging Taiwan PEDV strains for a better understanding of the genetic diversity and relationship among the Taiwan new variants and the global PEDVs, full‐length S genes of PEDVs from nine 1–7 day‐old piglets from three pig farms in the central and southern Taiwan were sequenced and analysed. The result of phylogenetic analysis of the S gene showed that all the Taiwan PEDV strain...
