Genetics of Cystic Fibrosis: A Comprehensive Review By Nadia Arora, ND
eBook (PDF): $5.95

This review article is focused on genetic and clinical characteristics of cystic fibrosis (CF), a hereditary disorder that causes electrolyte and fluid transport imbalances. Cystic fibrosis has been... More > considered primarily a disease of European population. This article provides statistics from the latest studies and explores recent data from WHO to demonstrate an important concept - cystic fibrosis affects all races and ethnic groups, but due to the lack of awareness, it is often unrecognized. This review covers in-depth classification of types of CF and discusses adult, neonatal and prenatal screening, including newest genetic screening. A new concept of evolutionary advantage of some hereditary conditions has been recently introduced in medical sciences. Using the data from latest anthropologic and clinical studies, we provide evidence in support of the hypothesis that gene for cystic fibrosis developed under evolutionary pressure and confers beneficial effect to the gene carriers.< Less
Genetics of Breast Cancer: A Comprehensive Review By Nadia Arora, ND
eBook (PDF): $5.95
Download immediately.
Increasing awareness of a strong influence of heredity on breast cancer has lead to this comprehensive review article, which is focused on genetic factors related to breast cancer. This article... More > discusses mechanism of carcinogenesis, prevalence and mode of inheritance of BRCA1 and BRCA1, as well as involvement of these genes in other types of cancer. It also discusses 8 other oncogenes and one genomic region associated with breast cancer. Male breast cancer, although rare, is strongly associated with the hereditary factors. This article discusses specific genetic mutations and hereditary conditions, which often lead to male breast cancer. Genetic testing and gene profiling, increasingly used in diagnosis and prognosis of breast cancer, are discussed in detail. This review article covers 26 original research studies and includes analysis of these studies in the context of breast cancer genetics.< Less

More > worsening environmental conditions, she tries to change the future by getting her friend Eugene to undertake some genetic engineering for his doctorate. When Concha experiences a glimpse of her great granddaughter Ana’s life nothing has changed - why not? What has happened to Eugene’s project? The question is whether Concha saw ‘the’ future or just ‘a’ future or whether she caused the future she saw. Duplicity and double dealing, greed and lust for wealth and riches at the expense of the world at large may make an exciting story and certainly demand all Gill and Steve’s resourcefulness - breaking into the university genetics department and passing information to an environmental organisation.< Less

More > recurrent neural networks and hidden Markov models into the hybrid architecture. This combination is feasible due to the similarity of the architectural dynamics of the two systems. Initial experiments were done by training recurrent neural networks to behave like finite-state automata using genetic algorithms in order to demonstrate that their structure is sufficiently rich to represent dynamical systems. The results show that hybrid recurrent neural networks can learn and represent dynamical systems such as finite automaton. Finally, the proposed hybrid architecture is applied to automatic speech phoneme recognition. The results show that hybrid recurrent neural networks perform with some conditions and degree of success when applied to difficult real-world problems.< Less

[SOFT COVER] ETHNIC SEPHARDIC JEWS IN THE MEDICAL LITERATURE - The Sephardic Jews make up the second largest division of the Jewish population; they have their historic roots in Spain,... More > Portugal and North Africa, as well as due to migrations, in Mesopotamia and Arabia. Sephardic Jews comprise the second largest group in the Jewish population after Ashkenazic Jews that stem from Eastern Europe. Sephardim have developed and possess a shared relationship based upon unique religious traditions, collective ideals, customs and ethnicity. Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews were geographically and religiously separate populations. Because of this separation, these two populations often display significant differences in the incidence of genetic diseases and medical conditions. ISBN 978-0-9763226-0-3 < Less
