Electroencephalogram studies of hypoxic ischemia in fetal and neonatal animal models.

Hamid Abbasi, Charles P Unsworth,

Alongside clinical achievements, experiments conducted on animal models (including primate or non-primate) have been effective in the understanding of various pathophysiological aspects of perinatal hypoxic/ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). Due to the reasonably fair degree of flexibility with experiments, most of the research around HIE in the literature has been largely concerned ... Read more >>

Shenali Anne Amaratunga, Tara Hussein Tayeb, Klara Rozenkova, Petra Kucerova, Stepanka Pruhova, Jan Lebl,

INTRODUCTION:Neonatal hypoglycemia due to congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a potentially life-threatening condition. Biallelic pathogenic variants in KATP channel subunit genes (ABCC8, KCNJ11), causing severe forms of CHI, are more prevalent in regions with a significant rate of consanguinity and may lead to unexplained neonatal deaths. We hypothesized that KATP channel ... Read more >>
