The purpose of this study was to compare the cause specific mortality of the U.S. coal miner to the mortality of the total U.S. male population. A 10% sample was taken of those men covered by the United Mine Workers Health and Retirement Funds on January 1, 1959, and the resultant 23,232 miners were followed through December 31, 1971. The overall SMR was 102.1, and there was higher than expected mortality in several categories of nonmalignant respiratory disease, accidents and stomach cancer. The excess in stomach cancer occurred only for those men 70 years of age or older.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
