A Narrative Review on the Use of Eye-Tracking in Rett Syndrome: Implications for Diagnosis and Treatment

Received: 27 January 2024;  Published: 05 July 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2403250


Rett syndrome (RTT) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder primarily affecting females, characterized by a spectrum of debilitating symptoms that impact neurological, cognitive, and motor functions. Eye-tracking technology (ETT) has emerged as a prominent tool in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, particularly for neurological patients with motor and verbal impairments. This narrative review aimed to evaluate stu [...]

Causes of Chromosome Breakage and Mis-segregation Affecting Pregnancy and Newborn Health: An Insight into Developing Reproductive Health Preventive Strategies

Received: 19 February 2024;  Published: 05 July 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2403249


Chromosome abnormalities are a leading cause of pregnancy loss, developmental delays, and birth defects. These abnormalities arise from errors in chromosome structure (breakage) or number (missegregation) during cell division. Understanding the causes of these errors is crucial for developing effective preventive strategies to improve reproductive health. This paper aims to review the known causes of chromosome breakage and mis-segregation, emphasizing their impact on pregnancy and n [...]

Hormonal and Physiological Manipulation Methods to Induce Polycystic Ovary in Rodents: A Review of the New Findings

Received: 06 February 2024;  Published: 04 July 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2403248


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy causing non-ovulation infertility in women. Women with PCOS have higher levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), testosterone, cholesterol and triglycerides but, in contrast, lower levels of follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) compared with healthy counterparts. Because of the limitations of human studies, animal models of PCOS have been developed to identify appropriate therapeutics and to exp [...]
