Dysfunctional breathing and its impact on asthma control in children and adolescents

Pediatr Allergy Immunol. 2023 Jan;34(1):e13909. doi: 10.1111/pai.13909. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Dysfunctional breathing (DB) has been shown to negatively affect asthma control in adults, but for children and adolescents, the knowledge is scarce. DB is among others characterized by dyspnea and hyperventilation. The Nijmegen Questionnaire (NQ) is often used as a marker for DB. We conducted a …

Comparative effects of kinect-based versus therapist-based constraint-induced movement therapy on motor control and daily motor function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy: a randomized control trial

J Neuroeng Rehabil. 2023 Jan 27;20(1):13. doi: 10.1186/s12984-023-01135-6. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is a prominent neurorehabilitation approach for improving affected upper extremity motor function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP). However, the restraint of the less-affected upper extremity and intensive training protocol during CIMT may decrease children’s motivation and increase the therapist’s …

Whole-exome sequencing identified recurrent and novel variants in benzene-induced leukemia

BMC Med Genomics. 2023 Jan 26;16(1):13. doi: 10.1186/s12920-023-01442-w. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Genome-wide sequencing may extensively identify potential pathogenic variants, which helps to understand mechanisms of tumorigenesis, but such study has not been reported in benzene-induced leukemia (BIL). METHODS: We recruited 10 BIL patients and conducted the whole-exome sequencing on their peripheral blood samples. The obtained sequencing …
