Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) - a novel clinico-pathological entity with heterogeneous clinical presentations.

Br J Haematol 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

National Coagulation Centre, St. James's Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) is a novel entity that emerged in March 2021 following reports of unusual thrombosis after ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, (AstraZeneca) vaccination. Following the recognition of this syndrome, multiple consensus guidelines have been released to risk stratify patients presenting with possible symptoms after ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccination. All guidelines rapidly identify VITT in patients with the complete triad of thrombocytopenia, thrombosis and elevated D-dimers after ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccination. Read More

Understanding aging and consumer fraud victimization in the Chinese context: A two-stage conceptual approach.

J Elder Abuse Negl 2021 Jun 20;33(3):230-247. Epub 2021 Jun 20.

Department of Family and Consumer University of Utah, Salt Lake City, United States.

The relationship between aging and consumer fraud victimization is mixed in the literature. Most studies based on survey data have found older consumers less likely to be fraud victims, while a few studies have found older consumers more likely to be victimized, especially with certain fraud types. We developed a two-stage conceptual framework to differentiate fraud exposure from fraud victimization once exposed. Read More

Axial elongation of caudalized human organoids mimics aspects of neural tube development.

Development 2021 Jun 18;148(12). Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Gladstone Institutes, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA.

Axial elongation of the neural tube is crucial during mammalian embryogenesis for anterior-posterior body axis establishment and subsequent spinal cord development, but these processes cannot be interrogated directly in humans as they occur post-implantation. Here, we report an organoid model of neural tube extension derived from human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) aggregates that have been caudalized with Wnt agonism, enabling them to recapitulate aspects of the morphological and temporal gene expression patterns of neural tube development. Elongating organoids consist largely of neuroepithelial compartments and contain TBXT+SOX2+ neuro-mesodermal progenitors in addition to PAX6+NES+ neural progenitors. Read More

A single cell characterisation of human embryogenesis identifies pluripotency transitions and putative anterior hypoblast centre.

Nat Commun 2021 06 17;12(1):3679. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, Mammalian Embryo and Stem Cell Group, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.

Following implantation, the human embryo undergoes major morphogenetic transformations that establish the future body plan. While the molecular events underpinning this process are established in mice, they remain unknown in humans. Here we characterise key events of human embryo morphogenesis, in the period between implantation and gastrulation, using single-cell analyses and functional studies. Read More

Can adults discriminate between fraudulent and legitimate e-mails? Examining the role of age and prior fraud experience.

J Elder Abuse Negl 2021 Jun 16;33(3):181-205. Epub 2021 Jun 16.

Psychology Department, Brock University, St. Catharines, Canada.

The present study assessed how accurate adults are at detecting fraudulent e-mail activity. A total of 100 younger (18-26 years) and 96 older adults (60-90 years) categorized a series of e-mails as legitimate or fraudulent phishing schemes and self-reported their fraud experiences. Younger and older adults did not differ in accuracy rates when categorizing the e-mails (72%), but older adults used a "high-suspicion" strategy where they were more likely to mislabel a legitimate e-mail as fraudulent compared to younger adults.
