Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) is a stage of the disease that contains morphological and functional disruption of the retinal vasculature and dysfunction of retinal neurons. This study aimed to compare time and time-frequency-domain analysis in the evaluation of electroretinograms (ERGs) in subjects with NPDR. The ERG responses were recorded in 16 eyes from 12 patients with NPDR and 24 eyes from 12 healthy subjects as the control group. The implicit time, amplitude, and time-frequency-domain parameters of photopic and scotopic ERGs were analyzed. The implicit times of b-waves in the dark-adapted 10.0 (P = 0.0513) and light-adapted 3.0 (P = 0.0414) were significantly increased in the NPDR group. The amplitudes of a- and b-wave showed a significantly decreased dark-adapted 10.0 (P = 0.0212; P = 0.0133) and light-adapted 3.0 (P = 0.0517; P = 0.0021) ERG of the NPDR group. The Cohen's d effect size had higher values in the amplitude of dark-adapted 10.0 b-wave (|d|= 1.8058) and amplitude of light-adapted 3.0 b-wave (|d|= 1.9662). The CWT results showed that the frequency ranges of the dominant components in dark-adapted 10.0 and light-adap...Continue Reading

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
