NEJM Study: Genetic Anomaly Hidden Behind Late-Onset Common Cerebellar Ataxia

Researchers from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, McGill University and other institutions have found that a well-hidden genetic variation in the FGF14 gene, called DNA tandem repeat expansion, causes a common form of late-onset cerebellar ataxia, a disorder that interferes with coordinated movement. Tandem repeat expansions are only found in 50 conditions, …

Viral protein causing chronic inflammation in people living with HIV: study

JThanks to antiretrovirals, people living with HIV can lead long and relatively healthy lives. But even though the virus is almost undetectable, people living with HIV are more likely to suffer from chronic inflammation than those without it, which can put them at risk for several diseases, including atherosclerosis and various disorders. neurological. Now, a …
