    Verbal autopsy can quantify SCD burden

    Verbal autopsy tools have strong agreement with hospital diagnoses in identifying sickle cell disease (SCD) as a cause of death in children, suggesting they will be useful to quantify the contribution of SCD to childhood mortality in Africa.

    Understanding retinal regeneration

    Following injury of the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE), dedifferentiation and increased FGF2 expression initiate repair, but Del Rio-Tsonis and colleagues identify the importance of the RNA binding factor Lin28, which can direct the complete reprogramming of the RPE in this regeneration process in the chick eye.

  • Genetics of eye disorders in the dog

    Cathryn Mellersh looks at the mutations that have been associated with inherited eye disorders in the dog. Similarities between eye structure and disease in humans and dogs point to an increased role for dogs in helping us to understand and treat eye disorders in both species.

    Nuclear Receptor Signaling is now open for submissions

    BioMed Central is pleased to announce that Nuclear Receptor Signaling is now open for submissions. The journal has published reviews and commentaries with the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) since 2004, but will now also consider primary research articles following its transfer.  The goal of NURSA is to accrue, develop, and communicate information that advances our understanding of the roles of nuclear receptors in human diseases and conditions in which they play an integral role. for further information please visit the journal.
