Prevalence of Capsular Serotype, Pilus Island Distribution, and Antibiotic Resistance in Pediatric and Adult Invasive Group B Streptococcus Isolates: Data From a Nationwide Prospective Surveillance Study in Germany.

Florens Lohrmann, Angela Berg, Esther Wicker, Anita Imm, Gérard Krause, Katharina Zürn, Reinhard Berner, Markus Hufnagel, Fabian Lander,

For neonates, group B Streptococcus is life threatening. Current prevention strategies remain insufficient, especially for cases of late-onset sepsis, where intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis has demonstrated no benefit. One promising approach is the vaccination of pregnant women, which offers protective immunity via transplacental transmission of neutralizing antibodies. Our nationwide, prospective surveillance ...

Pseudodominant inheritance of nephronophthisis caused by a homozygous NPHP1 deletion.

Julia Hoefele, Ahmet Nayir, Moumita Chaki, Anita Imm, Susan J Allen, Edgar A Otto, Friedhelm Hildebrandt,

Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is an autosomal recessive kidney disease characterized by tubular basement membrane disruption, interstitial infiltration, and tubular cysts. NPHP leads to end-stage renal failure (ESRD) in the first three decades of life and is the most frequent genetic cause of chronic renal failure in children and young adults. Extrarenal ...

Nephrocystin-5, a ciliary IQ domain protein, is mutated in Senior-Loken syndrome and interacts with RPGR and calmodulin.

Edgar A Otto, Bart Loeys, Hemant Khanna, Jan Hellemans, Ralf Sudbrak, Shuling Fan, Ulla Muerb, John F O'Toole, Juliana Helou, Massimo Attanasio, Boris Utsch, John A Sayer, Concepcion Lillo, David Jimeno, Paul Coucke, Anne De Paepe, Richard Reinhardt, Sven Klages, Motoyuki Tsuda, Isao Kawakami, Takehiro Kusakabe, Heymut Omran, Anita Imm, Melissa Tippens, Pamela A Raymond, Jo Hill, Phil Beales, Shirley He, Andreas Kispert, Benjamin Margolis, David S Williams, Anand Swaroop, Friedhelm Hildebrandt,

Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is the most frequent genetic cause of chronic renal failure in children. Identification of four genes mutated in NPHP subtypes 1-4 (refs. 4-9) has linked the pathogenesis of NPHP to ciliary functions. Ten percent of affected individuals have retinitis pigmentosa, constituting the renal-retinal Senior-Loken syndrome (SLSN). Here we ... Read more >>

Mutational analysis of the NPHP4 gene in 250 patients with nephronophthisis.

Julia Hoefele, Ralf Sudbrak, Richard Reinhardt, Silvia Lehrack, Steffen Hennig, Anita Imm, Ulla Muerb, Boris Utsch, Massimo Attanasio, John F O'Toole, Edgar Otto, Friedhelm Hildebrandt,

Nephronophthisis (NPH), a recessive cystic kidney disease, is the most frequent genetic cause for end-stage renal disease in the first two decades of life. Mutations in three genes (NPHP1, 2, and 3) were identified as causative. Extrarenal manifestations are known, such as retinitis pigmentosa (Senior-Loken syndrome, SLS) and ocular motor ...

Mapping a new suggestive gene locus for autosomal dominant nephrolithiasis to chromosome 9q33.2-q34.2 by total genome search for linkage.

Matthias T F Wolf, Isabella Zalewski, Félix Claverie Martin, Rainer Ruf, Dominik Müller, Hans C Hennies, Stella Schwarz, Franziska Panther, Massimo Attanasio, Hilaria G Acosta, Anita Imm, Barbara Lucke, Boris Utsch, Edgar Otto, Peter Nurnberg, Victor Garcia Nieto, Friedhelm Hildebrandt,

<h4>Background</h4>Nephrolithiasis is a complex, multifactorial disease resulting from genetic and environmental interaction. The pathogenesis of nephrolithiasis is far from being understood. So far, no gene locus for autosomal dominant nephrolithiasis only has been described. We here identified a new suggestive gene locus for autosomal dominant nephrolithiasis by a genome-wide search ...

Prevalence of WT1 mutations in a large cohort of patients with steroid-resistant and steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome.

Rainer G Ruf, Michael Schultheiss, Anne Lichtenberger, Stephanie M Karle, Isabella Zalewski, Bettina Mucha, Anne Schulze Everding, Thomas Neuhaus, Ludwig Patzer, Christian Plank, Johannes P Haas, Fatih Ozaltin, Anita Imm, Arno Fuchshuber, Aysin Bakkaloglu, Friedhelm Hildebrandt, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Nephrotic syndrome (NS) represents the association of proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, edema, and hyperlipidemia. Steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) is defined by primary resistance to standard steroid therapy. It remains one of the most intractable causes for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the first two decades of life. Sporadic mutations in the Wilms' ... Read more >>

A gene locus for steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome with deafness maps to chromosome 14q24.2.

Rainer G Ruf, Matthias T F Wolf, Hans C Hennies, Barbara Lucke, Christina Zinn, Verena Varnholt, Anne Lichtenberger, Andreas Pasch, Anita Imm, Sonia Briese, Thomas Lennert, Arno Fuchshuber, Peter Nurnberg, Friedhelm Hildebrandt,

Steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) leads to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in childhood or young adulthood. Positional cloning for genes causing SRNS has opened the first insights into the understanding of its pathogenesis. This study reports a genome-wide search for linkage in a consanguineous Palestinian kindred with SRNS and deafness and ... Read more >>
