Epidemiologic and histologic patterns of Hodgkin's disease in blacks

N J ViannaJ N Davies


The epidemiologic pattern for Hodgkin's disease in blacks from two different communities in the United States was characterized by higher childhood rates and significantly lower rates in the young adult and older age groups than for whites. In addition, a significantly greater number of black patients belonged to low occupational groups. These observations and the different epidemiologic patterns for blacks in Southern Transvaal, South Africa, and other countries suggest that the natural history of Hodgkin's disease might be strongly influenced by social milieu. The variability in Rye subtype distribution, particularly for whites and blacks in the young adult and other age groups raise the possibility that age related environmental factors might be important in the histologic reactivity of the host.

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.
