Disclosed herein are methods of expressing UDP-GlcNAc 2-Epimerase/ManNAc Kinase enzyme (GNE) peptide in a cell of a subject comprising: delivering into the cell of the subject an isolated nucleic acid expression construct that comprises a promoter operatively linked to a nucleic acid sequence encoding a GNE peptide or a therapeutically active fragment thereof, wherein the GNE peptide has the amino acid sequence of SEQ ID NO:3, wherein upon the delivering into the cell of the subject, the nucleic acid expression construct initiates expression of the GNE peptide or a therapeutically active fragment thereof. Also disclosed are methods of producing a GNE peptide in a cell comprising infecting the cell with an isolated nucleic acid construct that comprises a promoter operatively linked to a nucleic acid sequence encoding a GNE peptide or a therapeutically active fragment thereof, wherein the GNE peptide has the amino acid sequence of SEQ ID NO:3.

A method for closing a sternum separated into at least a first sternum portion and a second sternum portion includes preparing at least one cut surface of at least one of the first or second sternum portions to have an adhesive applied thereon. The adhesive is applied to at least a portion of the at least one cut surface. The at least one cut surface is approximated to a second cut surface of the other of the first sternum portion or second sternum portion. As the adhesive cures, it bonds with the first cut surface and the second cut surface. Preparing the at least one cut surface may remove contaminants that could inhibit adhesion of the adhesive. The adhesive may be applied through adhesive injection holes formed along an incision separating the first and second sternum portions. Devices for preparing the cut surfaces and applying the adhesive are also provided.

Copper ion treatments and methods of treatment are provided to treat various body conditions affecting the oral, respiratory and/or otic areas of the body. The copper ion treatments contain copper ions which bring about local and systemic therapeutic effects as a result of contacting anatomical tissue of the oral cavity, the nasal passages or ear canal. The copper ion treatments and methods involve copper ion-containing solutions, copper ion toothpaste and copper ion mouthwash. The copper ion-containing solutions can be delivered to the oral cavity by spraying or swabbing, can be delivered to the nostrils as spray, drops, or by swabbing, and can be delivered to the ear canal as spray, drops, or by swabbing. The copper ion toothpaste is used for brushing the teeth, and the copper ion mouthwash is used for rinsing the mouth.
