The Effect of Nasalance on Vocal Fold Oscillation Patterns During the Male PassaggioIt is generally assumed that when singing across the region where registration events for untrained voices occur (the passaggio), singers modify the voice production system in order to avoid changes of voice quality. In this context, it has been postulated that nasalance could be used to stabilize vocal function throughout the passaggio. However, whether nasalance is frequently used by professional singers and if...

Broadly Protective Antibodies Could Lead to Better Flu Treatments and Vaccines , Most flu vaccines work by teaching the immune system to attack hemagglutinin (HA) proteins on the surface of the flu virus. However, neuraminidase (NA) surface proteins could also be a good target for flu vaccines and treatments. NIAID-supported researchers have discovered three new antibodies which bind to influenza NA proteins. These antibodies appear to provide broad, robust protection against many different kinds...

MicroRNA-200a-3p is a positive regulator in cardiac hypertrophy through directly targeting WDR1 as well as modulating PTEN/PI3K/AKT/CREB/WDR1 signalingCardiac hypertrophy is an adaptive expansion of the myocardium due to the overloaded stress of heart. Recently, emerging studies have drawn a conclusion that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in myocardial hypertrophy and even heart failure. To figure out the role of microRNA-200a-3p (miR-200a-3p) in cardiac hypertrophy, the in vitro cardiac hypertrophy...

Mechanisms and treatment of bone pain in multiple myelomaPurpose of review Multiple myeloma is a haematological malignancy of differentiated B lymphocytes, known as plasma cells. The disease is common in the UK (incidence of 9 cases per 100 000 people) and the most frequent presentation is bone pain caused by skeletal damage. Patients with myeloma also experience neuropathic pain induced by chemotherapy. The management of pain in multiple myeloma is frequently demanding and often sub-optimally addressed....

Laryngeal amyloidosisPurpose of review Laryngeal amyloidosis is a rare hematological disorder of plasma cells. The cause is still considered idiopathic. The otolaryngology literature predominantly comprises case reports and short series. The present review summarizes the amyloid literature more generally in order to assist the otolaryngologist managing this disorder. Recent findings Distinguishing localized amyloidosis from systemic disease continues to be challenging. Both radiological and hematological...
