Strategies for in-flight physiological events such as hypoxia

A new Research using a new skill, Navy Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI), a detachment of Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) investigated that could potentially become an early-warning signal to military pilots who are experiencing inflight physiologic events such as hypoxia.The senior medical officer of Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC), who coordinates all NAMI research, is working with new Electroencephalogram (EEG) technology for use in hypoxia detection. 

A Cluster of Mutations in Neurofibromatosis

Ludwine Messiaen led the research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, shows that missense mutations in a cluster of just five codons in the NF1 gene are an important risk factor for severe symptoms of the genetic disease neurofibromatosis type 1.The study was published in the American Journal of Human Genetics . It shows a potential need for increased disease surveillance of patients with missense mutations in that cluster.
