Eczema Plus Family History Can Mean a Longer Hospital Stay for Kids with Asthma

Asthma and allergies are related, and many people who suffer from asthma have allergies that trigger their asthma. Research being presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology’s (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting examines the relationship between medical history and allergic reactionsin children, and how long they stayed in the hospital after an asthma attack.

Case Western Reserve Research Advance May Prevent a Form of Hereditary Hearing Loss

A research advance co-led by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine’s Kumar Alagramam, PhD, may stop the progression of hearing loss and lead to significant preservation of hearing in people with Usher syndrome type III, a form of hereditary hearing loss linked to defects in the sensory “hair” cells in the inner ear. USH3 is caused by a mutation in the clarin-1 gene.

Mistakes in How Proteins of the Ear are Built Contribute to Early Hearing Loss

EpsteinDougDevCellHairCellsOct2017.jpg

Researchers found mutations in a master-switch protein called Epithelial Splicing Regulatory Protein 1 in individuals with a type of congenital hearing loss. In general, what connects most of the unexplained hearing-loss cases is that protein building in the cochlea during development goes awry. The cochlea has the all-important job of transforming mechanical energy in the form of sound waves into electrical signals that run along auditory nerves to the brain.

Blood Flow in the Developing Heart Guides Maturation of Heart Valves

Congenital heart valve defects are the most common type of birth defect, the majority of which have no clear genetic cause, suggesting that epigenetic factors play an important role. Now, researchers have found that the shear force of blood flow against the cells lining the early heart valve sends signals for heart “cushion” cells to become fully formed valves.
