  • Wilson disease (WD), an inherited disorder affecting copper metabolism, is characterized by hepatic cirrhosis and neuronal degeneration, which result from toxic levels of copper that accumulate in the liver and brain, respectively. We reported previously that the  1.3-kb promoter of the WD gene contains four metal response elements (MREs). Among the four MREs, MREa plays the most important role in the transcriptional activation of the WD promoter.

  • ZntA, a bacterial zinc-transporting P-type ATPase, is homologous to two human ATPases mutated in Menkes and Wilson diseases. To explore the roles of the bacterial ATPase residues homologous to those involved in the humandiseases, we have introduced several pointmutations into ZntA. The mutants P401L, D628A and P634L corres-pond to the Wilson disease mutations P992L, D1267A and P1273L, respectively.

  • In writing An Atlas of Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders, I have been conscious of the need to find an appropriate match between the text and the illustrative material. The text is designed to provide a basic overview of the conditions discussed, inevitably concentrating on those areas which lend themselves best to photographic illustration. Some movement disorders, by their very nature, do not lend themselves to still photography whereas others, characterized by sustained postures, are ideally suited to the technique.

  • Eugene “Bill” Wilson (1900–1981) was Dean of Admission at Amherst College. He was known for his sense of humor and his genuine interest in the welfare of each student. This quote attributed to him, published in Reader’s Digest in April of 1968, summarizes education to me, that is, it is learning itself that is most exciting, not the knowledge per se that one gathers from it. It is truly the lifelong ride of learning, not the final destination, that makes us what we are.

  • There are a lot of references of rickettsioses acquired by travellers and considered imported diseases (McDonald et al., 1988; Bottieau et al. 2006; Freedman et al., 2006; Askling et al. 2009; Chen & Wilson, 2009; Jensenius et al., 2009; Stokes & Walters, 2009). Nowadays ticks cause most travel-associated rickettsioses. Ticks are considered to be one of the most important vectors of infectious diseases in the world, preceded only by mosquitoes. Therefore, tick-borne rickettsioses are endemic all over the world (Hechemy et al., 2006).

  • Hepatocellular Conditions Hepatocellular diseases that can cause jaundice include viral hepatitis, drug or environmental toxicity, alcohol, and end-stage cirrhosis from any cause (Table 43-2). Wilson's disease, once believed to occur primarily in young adults, should be considered in all adults if no other cause of jaundice is found. Autoimmune hepatitis is typically seen in young to middle-aged women but may affect men and women of any age. Alcoholic hepatitis can be differentiated from viral and toxin-related hepatitis by the pattern of the aminotransferases.

  • In recent years, in other disciplines as well, countries worldwide have been conducting large national studies targeting people. It is thought that each country intends to collect information about the people in these studies as part of its national strategy and accumulate it as intellectual property for the health and medical care of future generations. The United Kingdom, for example, is conducting research to determine the effects of lifestyle, the environment, and genetics, targeting 500,000 adults.
