    ..Corticotropin should be relatively contraindicated for use when a patient has a history of HSV infection, or intravenous acyclovir should be administered concurrently. ..

    ..Our results suggest that diagnostic testing is a relatively modest contributor to the overall health care costs in patients with leukodystrophy, and offer insights into the diagnostic odyssey of children with neurologic impairment. ..

    ..Neurological evaluation during hospitalization for a first apparent life-threatening event is of low yield, but close follow-up is essential. ..

    Bonkowsky J, Chien C. Molecular cloning and developmental expression of foxP2 in zebrafish. Dev Dyn. 2005;234:740-6 pubmed
    ..Thus, in addition to specific roles in language development, foxP2 likely has a more general conserved role in nervous system development. ..

    ..This approach is rapid, sensitive, and inexpensive, with lower risk of contamination artifacts. Genotyping by PCR with HRMA can be used for embryos or adult fish, including in high-throughput screening protocols. ..

    ..The observed dysynchrony of gene expression could impair the development of normal CNS connectivity maps. ..

    ..Overall population incidence is higher than generally appreciated (1 in 7,663 live births). Most leukodystrophies remain undiagnosed, but a logical algorithm based on prevalence could aid testing. ..
