BackgroundThe World Health Organization (WHO) released new Child Growth Standards in 2006 to replace the current National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) growth reference. We assessed how switching from the NCHS to the newly released WHO Growth Standards affects the estimated prevalence of wasting, underweight and stunting, and the pattern of risk factors identified.Methodology/Principal FindingsData were drawn from a village-informant driven Demographic Surveillance System in Northern Ma...

The molecular heterogeneity of acute leukemias and other tumors constitutes a major obstacle towards understanding disease pathogenesis and developing new targeted-therapies. Aberrant gene regulation is a hallmark of cancer and plays a central role in determining tumor phenotype. We predicted that integration of different genome-wide epigenetic regulatory marks along with gene expression levels would provide greater power in capturing biological differences between leukemia subtypes. Gene exp...

BackgroundOn average, cognition declines with age but this average hides considerable variability, including the chance of improvement. Here, we investigate how exercise is associated with cognitive change and mortality in older people and, particularly, whether exercise might paradoxically increase the risk of dementia by allowing people to live longer.Methods and Principal FindingsIn the Canadian Study of Health and Aging (CSHA), of 8403 people who had baseline cognition measured and exerci...

Data represent means±SD. For statistical analysis, data were log-transformed. Age was adjusted for gender. BMI, body fat, and waist circumference were adjusted for gender and age. Plasma glucose levels and indices of insulin sensitivity were adjusted for gender, age, and BMI. Indices of insulin secretion were adjusted for gender, age, BMI, and ISI (OGTT). p1–p-value, additive model; p2–p-value, dominant model. AUC–area under the curve; HOMA-IR–homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistanc...

These 13 genes both show >4-fold changes in AS ratios during development and >4-fold changes in N2 embryos vs. sym-2 embryos. The “stages with the furthest difference” column indicates the developmental stages with the most extreme alternative splicing differences. AS ratio (log-scale): represents the AS ratio for the stages with the furthest differences. The last column indicates the AS ratios (log-scale) for N2 embryos vs. sym-2 mutant embryos.
