It remains controversial that the impacts of individual HLA locus mismatches on clinical outcomes of patients receiving unrelated-donor hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), as compared to HLA allele matched controls. We conducted a meta-analysis to address these issues. Four databases (PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library) were searched to select eligible studies. All donor-recipient pairs were high-resolution typing for HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, DQB1 and DPB1 loci. Multivariate-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) were extracted and pooled using a random-effects model. A total of 36 studies were included, with 100,072 patients receiving HCT. Surprisingly, we found that HLA-DQB1 locus mismatches had no significantly increased risk of multiple outcomes including acute and chronic graftversus- host disease (GVHD), overall mortality and disease relapse (HR, 1.07; P = .153; HR, 1.07; P = .271; HR, 1.09; P = .230; HR, 1.07; P = .142 and HR, 1.02; P = .806, respectively). Mismatched HLA-DPB1 was significantly associated with a reduced risk of disease relapse (HR, 0.74; P < .001) but not with increased risks of transplantrelated mortality (TRM) and overall mortality (HR, 1.09; P = .591; I2= 74.2% and HR, 1.03; P = .460, respectively). In conclusion, HLA-DQB1 locus mismatches is a permissive mismatching. HLA-DPB1 locus mismatches significantly protect against leukemia relapse. Refining effects of individual HLA locus mismatches contributes to predicting prognosis of patients receiving unrelated donor HCT.

Background With the tremendous advances in the field of brain–computer interfaces (BCI), the literature in this field has grown exponentially; examination of highly cited articles is a tool that can help identify outstanding scientific studies and landmark papers. This study examined the characteristics of 100 highly cited BCI papers over the past 10 years. Methods The Web of Science was searched for highly cited papers related to BCI research published from 2006 to 2015. The top 100 highly cited articles were identified. The number of citations and countries, and the corresponding institutions, year of publication, study design, and research area were noted and analyzed. Results The 100 highly cited articles had a mean of 137.1(SE: 15.38) citations. These articles were published in 45 high-impact journals, and mostly in TRANSACTIONS ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (n = 14). Of the 100 articles, 72 were original articles and the rest were review articles. These articles came from 15 countries, with the USA contributing most of the highly cited articles (n = 52). Fifty-seven institutions produced these 100 highly cited articles, led by Duke University (n = 7). Conclusions This study provides a historical perspective on the progress in the field of BCI, allows recognition of the most influential reports, and provides useful information that can indicate areas requiring further investigation. © 2016 Elsevier Ireland Ltd

Object: The aim of this study is to explore the changes of inter-hemispheric functional connectivity in patients with unilateral brachial plexus injury. Methods: Nine patients with five roots of unilateral brachial plexus avulsion injury and 11 healthy controls were recruited in this study. Resting-state functional connectivity magnetic resonance image was used to study the differences of inter-hemispheric functional connectivity between patients and healthy controls. Four areas were defined as regions of interest (ROI): the two primary motor areas (M1 areas) and two supplementary motor areas (SMAs) in the two hemispheres activated when the healthy controls performed unilateral hand grasping movement of the two hands, respectively. Functional connectivity maps were generated by correlating the regional time course of each ROI with that of every voxel in the whole brain. Then, functional connectivity was calculated by correlating the functional magnetic resonance image signal time courses of every two ROIs. Results: Resting-state inter-hemispheric functional connectivity of the primary motor areas was reduced following brachial plexus avulsion injury. The correlation coefficients of the SMAs showed no difference between the brachial plexus patients and healthy volunteers. Conclusions: Our results indicate that brachial plexus injury decreases resting-state inter-hemispheric functional connectivity of the two primary motor areas. These results provide new insight into functional reorganization of the cerebral cortex after brachial plexus injury. © 2013 IBRO.

BACKGROUND: During the spring of 2013, a novel avian-origin influenza A (H7N9) virus emerged and spread among humans in China. Data were lacking on the clinical characteristics of the infections caused by this virus. METHODS: Using medical charts, we collected data on 111 patients with laboratory-confirmed avian-origin influenza A (H7N9) infection through May 10, 2013. RESULTS: Of the 111 patients we studied, 76.6% were admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), and 27.0% died. The median age was 61 years, and 42.3% were 65 years of age or older; 31.5% were female. A total of 61.3% of the patients had at least one underlying medical condition. Fever and cough were the most common presenting symptoms. On admission, 108 patients (97.3%) had findings consistent with pneumonia. Bilateral ground-glass opacities and consolidation were the typical radiologic findings. Lymphocytopenia was observed in 88.3% of patients, and thrombocytopenia in 73.0%. Treatment with antiviral drugs was initiated in 108 patients (97.3%) at a median of 7 days after the onset of illness. The median times from the onset of illness and from the initiation of antiviral therapy to a negative viral test result on real-time reverse-transcriptase-polymerase- chain-reaction assay were 11 days (interquartile range, 9 to 16) and 6 days (interquartile range, 4 to 7), respectively. Multivariate analysis revealed that the presence of a coexisting medical condition was the only independent risk factor for the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) (odds ratio, 3.42; 95% confidence interval, 1.21 to 9.70; P = 0.02). CONCLUSIONS: During the evaluation period, the novel H7N9 virus caused severe illness, including pneumonia and ARDS, with high rates of ICU admission and death.

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common developmental abnormality, and is the leading noninfectious cause of mortality in neonates. Increasing evidence demonstrates that genetic defects play an important role in the pathogenesis of CHD. However, CHD exhibits substantial heterogeneity, and the genetic determinants for CHD remain unknown in the overwhelming majority of cases. In the current study, the coding exons and flanking introns of the HAND2 gene, which encodes a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor essential for normal cardiovascular development, were sequenced in 192 unrelated patients with CHD, and a novel heterozygous mutation, p.S65I, was identified in a patient with congenital ventricular septal defect (VSD). Genetic analysis of the index patients pedigree revealed that the mutation was present in all seven affected family members available, but absent in the 13 unaffected family members examined. Besides, in addition to VSD, five of the probands close relatives also had pulmonary stenosis (PS), and the probands son also had double outlet right ventricle (DORV). The missense mutation, which altered an evolutionarily conserved amino acid, was absent in 300 unrelated, ethnically matched healthy individuals. Biological analyses using a dual-luciferase reporter assay system showed that the mutant HAND2 was associated with significantly diminished transcriptional activity. Furthermore, the mutation abolished the synergistic activation between HAND2 and GATA4, as well as NKX2.5-two other cardiac core transcriptional factors that have been causally linked to CHD. These findings indicate that HAND2 loss-of-function mutation contributes to human CHD, perhaps via its interaction with GATA4 and NKX2.5.

Network meta-analysis may be performed by fitting multivariate meta-analysis models with Stata software mvmeta command; however, there are various challenges such as preprocessing the data, parameterising the model, and making good graphical displays of results. A suite of Stata programs, network, may meet these challenges. In this article, we introduce how to use the network commands to implement network meta-analysis by the example of continuous data. © 2015 Editorial Board of Chin J Evid-based Med.

Object. Contralateral C-7 nerve transfer was developed for the treatment of patients with brachial plexus avulsion injury (BPAI). In the surgical procedure the affected recipient nerve is connected to the ipsilateral motor cortex, and the dramatic peripheral alteration may trigger extensive cortical reorganization. However, little is known about the long-term results after such specific nerve transfers. The purpose of this study was to investigate the long-term cortical adaptive plasticity after BPAI and contralateral C-7 nerve transfer. Methods. In this study, 9 healthy male volunteers and 5 male patients who suffered from right-sided BPAI and had undergone contralateral C-7- transfer more than 5 years earlier were included. Functional MRI studies were used for the investigation of long-term cerebral plasticity. Results. The neuroimaging results suggested that the ongoing cortical remodeling process after contralateral C-7 nerve transfer could last for a long period; at least for 5 years. The motor control of the reinnervated limb may finally transfer from the ipsilateral to the contralateral hemisphere exclusively, instead of the bilateral neural network activation. Conclusions. The authors believe that the cortical remodeling may last for a long period after peripheral rearrangement and that the successful cortical transfer is the foundation of the independent motor recovery. © 2013 AANS.

Objective: We assessed the diagnostic value of triple stimulation technique (TST) in eight patients with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) by revealing the conduction block of the proximal lower trunk of the brachial plexus and locating the compression site. Methods: Eight patients fulfilling the conventional criteria of the lower-trunk neurogenic TOS were enrolled in our study. TST along with the central motor-conduction time was evaluated. The parameters including the TST amplitude ratio and the TST area ratio were compared between patients and controls. Results: The amplitude ratio was significantly lower in the patient group than in the control group (patients: 0.518 ± 0.113; control: 0.954 ± 0.020, P < 0.01), so was the area ratio (patients: 0.453 ± 0.194; control group: 0.955 ± 0.192, P < 0.01). No significant difference of central motor-conduction time (CMCT) was seen between the patient group and the control group (patients: 6.62 ± 0.36 ms; control: 6.54 ± 0.36 ms; P = 0.528). Surgical procedures proved the compression of the lower trunk in all patients. Conclusion: Our results indicated that there was conduction block besides axon loss in neurogenic TOS patients, and the conduction block was located between the nerve root emerging site and the supraclavicular stimulation site. Significance: We first applied TST in diagnosing neurogenic TOS, and we showed that the patient's TST ratio was significantly lower than normal. Combined with clinical manifestations, TOS can be more precisely diagnosed. © 2015 International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology.
