  1. Tobias Haeusermann, Cailin R. Lechner, Kristina Celeste Fong, Alissa Bernstein Sideman, Agnieszka Jaworska, Winston Chiong, Daniel Dohan. Closed-Loop Neuromodulation and Self-Perception in Clinical Treatment of Refractory Epilepsy. AJOB Neuroscience, Sept. 2, 2021; DOI: 10.1080/21507740.2021.1958100

The findings, published in the peer-reviewed journal AJOB Neuroscience,will help alleviate some ethical concerns that have been raised around closed-loop brain stimulation devices which could, in theory, have unintended effects on a person’s sense of self or personality.

“Next-generation brain stimulation devices can modulate brain activity without human intervention, which raises new ethical and policy questions. But while there is a great deal of speculation about the potential consequences of these innovative treatments, very little is currently known about patients’ experiences of any device approved for clinical use,” said lead author Tobias Haeusermann of the University of California.

“This issue is becoming even more pressing, as several similar treatments are currently under development for several common neurological and psychiatric conditions, including depression, anxiety chronic pain, Alzheimer’s disease and ischemic stroke — offering the promise of effective new treatments for these debilitating illnesses.”

Closed-loop brain stimulation systems can monitor and decode brain activity and automatically adjust treatment — delivered through electrical pulses — based on internal software algorithms. These implantable devices may provide more precise and personalized treatment than ‘open loop’ systems, which have been used for decades to treat Parkinson’s disease and other conditions by applying consistent pre-programmed stimulation to targeted brain areas.

Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes seizures and affects around three million US adults. Around one-third of people with the condition will eventually develop refractory epilepsy — which means that current medications don’t work well, or at all, at controlling their seizures. While brain surgery can be helpful, it isn’t suitable for all patients.

In 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a closed-loop brain stimulation system for treating refractory epilepsy. This study followed 12 patients, and their family caregivers, over two years to find out about their experiences of this implant, which is the first clinically approved and commercially available closed-loop brain stimulation device.

“We found that the brain implants did not transform patients’ sense of self or personality. Neither the long-term implantation of the electronic device in their brain, nor the electrical stimulation to modulate their brain function, led to changes in their self-perceptions — or the perceptions of the patient by family members and others around them,” said Haeusermann. “This is reassuring news for more than 3,000 patients with refractory epilepsy implanted with this device to date — as well as the many others who may consider this treatment as a way to prevent their seizures in the future.”

The results also highlighted the importance of evaluating the potential effects of brain stimulation in relation to patients’ previous neurological conditions and medications, which were recognized by both patients and family members as having a profound impact on their personality and self-perception.

The ability of next-generation brain stimulation devices to record, store and display brain data could also offer patients new ways of understanding and making sense of their illness. But the results of the study also indicated that if a patient’s experiences are not corroborated by the technology, they and others around them can begin to question their understanding of their illness.

“While patients generally valued the opportunity to view data collected by these devices, the process could also create uncertainties. Generating what appeared to be objective records of their illness might be interpreted as discrediting a patient’s own reports,” said Haeusermann. “Researchers may need to more carefully consider how patients will make meaning from data that are collected, stored and interpreted by these devices. Design choices such as user interface, options for data use and portability, and the degree of anticipated interaction with clinicians, may have unintended effects on how patients understand their brains and brain conditions.”

However, the authors noted that the brain implant used for these epilepsy patients does not have many of the more advanced functions that are envisioned for future devices. For example, these systems might be designed to exert effects specifically through programmed alterations to patients’ personalities and behaviors for treating psychiatric disorders.

The 32 clubs entered in the Champions League had until Thursday evening, at midnight, to communicate to UEFA their list of the 25 players selected for the competition. PSG had to make choices, while LOSC only put 21 names on the sheet.

21 players for Gourvennec, 25 for Pochettino.

D-11! On September 14, the race to take over from Chelsea will be officially launched when the group stage of the Champions League kicks off.

The 32 participating clubs had until Thursday evening, at midnight, to communicate to UEFA their A list of the 25 players selected to compete in the competition, not to mention the B list reserved for young U21 players. To reach the correct total, Paris Saint-Germain had to make choices, while LOSC only put 21 names on the sheet.

Possible changes in February

The fault of the criteria imposed by UEFA, which requires participants to register at least four players trained at the club and four others trained in France in their list A. Without this, the authorized quota is reduced. And in Lille, it was the Croatian left side Domagoj Bradaric (21), overtaken in the hierarchy by Reinildo (27), who paid the price. We will also note the absence of the right piston Jérémy Pied (32 years old), who could have been qualified, but Jocelyn Gourvennec does not seem to be counting on him.

On the other hand, the northern technician logically summoned all his executives. From Jose Fonte (37 years old) to Burak Yilmaz (36 years old), via Renato Sanches (24 years old). And it will take that to get out of group G, which includes Sevilla FC, Red Bull Salzburg and Wolfsburg. As a reminder, the LOSC list A is not fixed, because Gourvennec will be able to modify it in February if his team qualifies for the knockout stages. And his Parisian counterpart, Mauricio Pochettino, could also take the opportunity to make changes.

Pochettino does without Bernat (for now)

Because, despite a greater depth of staff, the Argentine technician also had to make choices to meet UEFA’s criteria. Players trained at the club are rare but there (Letellier, Kimpembe, Dagba, Dina Ebimbe), not to mention those who come from other French training centers (Diallo, Kurzawa, Gueye, Mbappé). The third goalkeeper will therefore not be Sergio Rico (28 years old), who will watch the C1 on television, just like Rafinha (28 years old) and especially Juan Bernat (28 years old)!

The left side, still in the recovery phase, however retains the hope of joining the list in February. But not the former Barcelona midfielder, who is definitely not in his coach’s plans this season. And, like Gourvennec in Lille, Pochettino has also called all his executives to compete in the competition, and especially all his summer recruits. Including Sergio Ramos (35), also in the recovery phase. Bruges, Manchester City and Leipzig, all members of group A, have been warned: the Parisian armada will be there!

PSG’s A-list for the Champions League:

Guardians : Navas, Donnarumma, Letellier
Defenders : Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Sergio Ramos, Diallo, Hakimi, Kehrer, Dagba, Nuno Mendes, Kurzawa
Environments : Verratti, Paredes, Gueye, Herrera, Draxler, Danilo, Wijnaldum, Dina Ebimbe
Forwards : Mbappé, Messi, Neymar, Di Maria, Icardi

The LOSC A list for the Champions League:

Job by Marc Larcher August 31, 2021

DiCaprio the Magnificent

The sixties had Brando, the seventies had De Niro and since the 2000s, he is another gifted actor who holds the belt of “best actor in the world”. Able to interpret historical figures (King Louis XIV, FBI Director Edgar Hoover, billionaire Howard Hugues), heroes of literature (Fitzgerald’s Gatsby or Romeo the Shakespearean lover), an actor who has gone to the wrong side From celebrity to a slave landowner at Tarantino, DiCaprio moves from role to role over the years with disconcerting ease.

The Oscar winner

In September, he made a new demonstration of it since on TCM Cinéma, we discover him mercenary in search of diamonds in Sierra Leone in BLOOD DIAMOND (Edward Zwick, 2006), high official without mercy in J. EDGAR (Clint Eastwood, 2011) , a night owl millionaire in THE MAGNIFICENT GATSBY (Baz Luhrmann, 2013) and CIA agent in the Middle East in STATE LIES (Ridley Scott, 2008). The actor is not content with being a competitive chameleon, he is building an exemplary career by filming less and less, but better and better. Between 2015 and 2020? Only two shootings but very heavy since his role as a vengeful trapper in THE REVENANT (Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2015) finally allowed him to win an Oscar in 2015 and five years later, he shines in He WAS ONCE IN HOLLYWOOD (Quentin Tarantino, 2019).

In the meantime, he simply devoted himself to the production of a documentary on the dangers of global warming. Before he got so scarce that he only picked up his phone when Scorcese or Tarantino called him, his genius was still being honed. It’s the whole point of seeing him or seeing him again in his films of the 2000s. In GATSBY THE MAGNIFICENT, you have to observe his 10,000-watt smile bewitching his friend Tobey Maguire, lost among the rich, listening to him in LIES OF STATE speak an Arabic which makes him credible as a spy on the ground installed in Jordan. See also his agony on a hill in BLOOD DIAMOND, a passage that prefigures his great survival scene, injured by a bear, in THE REVENANT. Finally, his way of retaining his attraction to his colleague in J. EDGAR, before exploding in anger when the latter confesses his love to him, is worth all the Oscar in the world. If the Academy gave him during his career only a statuette for six nominations, the spectators know them that with these only four films, more people did not reach him already. It makes you wonder if such a talent was not predestined: remember that his pregnant mother named him Leonardo after he kicked her while she was looking at a painting of… Leonardo by Vinci in a museum in Florence. These things cannot be learned in acting lessons.

Netflix love rankings. Since the company launched this feature, not a week goes by without it presenting us with one. The opportunity, sometimes, to come across nuggets that we could have missed otherwise.

And indeed, if you feel like you’re going around in circles, then here are the 10 movies and series that occupy the Top 10 of Netflix this week.

Netflix’s rankings are constantly changing. It is therefore possible that it will not be the same when you consult it.

Read also : Netflix: movies not to miss in September 2021

Top 1 : Good Girls

Good Girls is one of those series which are in line with Breaking Bad, Weeds and others.

She therefore follows the daily lives of three perfectly ordinary women, women who for reasons that concern them will take it into their heads to rob a supermarket. But now, the supermarket in question was used to launder the money of a local boss. And the latter is obviously not going to see the initiative very favorably. Our three girlfriends will then be recruited in spite of themselves to… print false tickets.

Top 2: He is too good

In first position, we find a romantic comedy with an actor who should remind you of something: Tanner Buchanan, who was notably revealed by his role in Cobra Kai.

In this film, therefore, we follow an expert influence in makeover who will set himself the goal of giving a little lost comrade a makeover to make him the king of the ball.

Top 3 : SAS Rise of the Black Swan

Do you like action and big guns? SAS Rise of the Black Swan might be for you.

The story takes place on a train between London and Paris, and as a band of armed mercenaries take control. A special forces agent traveling with his girlfriend will then take it into his head to take action. Big fights in perspective. Note that the leader of the mercenaries is camped by Ruby Rose, whom we have seen in the last seasons of Orange is the New Black.

Top 4 : Clickbait

Clickbait is the hit series right now. A series which recalls in certain aspects Black Mirror and which is therefore fully in line with our current society… and which highlights all the abuses linked to the development of the Internet.

Nick Brewer, an apparently ordinary family man, will be kidnapped after a sordid crime, and integrated into a site. The idea is simple, from 5 million views it will die.

Top 5 : Mr Robot

Mr Robot is for months one of the best series you can find on Netflix today.

The story seems quite simple on the surface. We follow the daily life of an outsider who juggles two lives: cybersecurity engineer by day and hack by night. Except that you have to be wary of appearances. I won’t tell you too much so as not to spoil the surprise, but Mr. Robot really has a unique dimension. A series that is out of the ordinary.

Top 6 : Flash

Flash occupies sixth place in the standings, driven by the arrival of its brand new season.

So this series, you probably already know it. It focuses on the adventures of the superhero, a superhero who will be recruited by the former head of a company who was left paralyzed following the accident that caused the emergence of meta humans.

Flash will then be recruited by the latter to fight against those who have put their powers at the service of crime, but not everything will turn out as prevy.

Top 7: Welcome to the Louds the Movie

The Louds are real stars on Netflix so it only made sense that they were entitled to their movie.

A film which recounts the trip undertaken by Lincoln Loud in Scotland and which will allow him to discover that his family actually has royal blood. A discovery that will of course change everything.

Top 8 : Outer Banks

Outer Banks has been in Netflix’s Top 10 for several weeks and looks set to stay there.

The series takes place on the Outer Banks, an island where the richest rub shoulders with the poorest. She follows a gang of friends born on the wrong side of the fence, a gang who will discover a submerged yacht after a powerful storm and who will find on board an object that seems to be linked to the disappearance of the father of one of them. them.

Top 9: Paw Patrol

And we end this selection with Paw Patrol, a series for the little ones that seems to be a hit on Netflix at the moment.

A series that focuses on a patrol made up of six heroic puppies and placed under the care of a ten-year-old boy.

Top 10: The Meg

No one can do anything against Jason Statham and his budding baldness, not even a megalodon.

Netflix love rankings. Since the company launched this feature, not a week goes by without it presenting us with one. The opportunity, sometimes, to come across nuggets that we could have missed otherwise.

And indeed, if you feel like you’re going around in circles, then here are the 10 movies and series that occupy the Top 10 of Netflix this week.

Netflix’s rankings are constantly changing. It is therefore possible that it will not be the same when you consult it.

Top 1 : Good Girls

Good Girls is one of those series which are in line with Breaking Bad, Weeds and others.

She therefore follows the daily lives of three perfectly ordinary women, women who for reasons that concern them will take it into their heads to rob a supermarket. But now, the supermarket in question was used to launder the money of a local boss. And the latter is obviously not going to see the initiative very favorably. Our three girlfriends will then be recruited in spite of themselves to… print false tickets.

Top 2: He is too good

In first position, we find a romantic comedy with an actor who should remind you of something: Tanner Buchanan, who was notably revealed by his role in Cobra Kai.

In this film, therefore, we follow an expert influence in makeover who will set himself the goal of giving a little lost comrade a makeover to make him the king of the ball.

Top 3 : SAS Rise of the Black Swan

Do you like action and big guns? SAS Rise of the Black Swan might be for you.

The story takes place on a train between London and Paris, and as a band of armed mercenaries take control. A special forces agent traveling with his girlfriend will then take it into his head to take action. Big fights in perspective. Note that the leader of the mercenaries is camped by Ruby Rose, whom we have seen in the last seasons of Orange is the New Black.

Top 4 : Clickbait

Clickbait is the hit series right now. A series which recalls in certain aspects Black Mirror and which is therefore fully in line with our current society… and which highlights all the abuses linked to the development of the Internet.

Nick Brewer, an apparently ordinary family man, will be kidnapped after a sordid crime, and integrated into a site. The idea is simple, from 5 million views it will die.

Top 5 : Mr Robot

Mr Robot is for months one of the best series you can find on Netflix today.

The story seems quite simple on the surface. We follow the daily life of an outsider who juggles two lives: cybersecurity engineer by day and hack by night. Except that you have to be wary of appearances. I won’t tell you too much so as not to spoil the surprise, but Mr. Robot really has a unique dimension. A series that is out of the ordinary.

Top 6 : Flash

Flash occupies sixth place in the standings, driven by the arrival of its brand new season.

So this series, you probably already know it. It focuses on the adventures of the superhero, a superhero who will be recruited by the former head of a company who was left paralyzed following the accident that caused the emergence of meta humans.

Flash will then be recruited by the latter to fight against those who have put their powers at the service of crime, but not everything will turn out as prevy.

Top 7: Welcome to the Louds the Movie

The Louds are real stars on Netflix so it only made sense that they were entitled to their movie.

A film which recounts the trip undertaken by Lincoln Loud in Scotland and which will allow him to discover that his family actually has royal blood. A discovery that will of course change everything.

Top 8 : Outer Banks

Outer Banks has been in Netflix’s Top 10 for several weeks and looks set to stay there.

The series takes place on the Outer Banks, an island where the richest rub shoulders with the poorest. She follows a gang of friends born on the wrong side of the fence, a gang who will discover a submerged yacht after a powerful storm and who will find on board an object that seems to be linked to the disappearance of the father of one of them. them.

Top 9: Paw Patrol

And we end this selection with Paw Patrol, a series for the little ones that seems to be a hit on Netflix at the moment.

A series that focuses on a patrol made up of six heroic puppies and placed under the care of a ten-year-old boy.

Top 10: The Meg

No one can do anything against Jason Statham and his budding baldness, not even a megalodon.

The Meg tells the story of the confrontation between the actor and this creature that we thought had disappeared. And who is, of course. This time, therefore, the British actor plays a broken rescue diver who will put on his fins to fight against the sea monster. Just that.

Preliminary investigations targeting singer Patrick Bruel for assault, exhibition or sexual harassment, as well as a report from the Swiss authorities to French justice, were closed on December 22, 2020, Agence France-Presse (AFP) learned. Friday, September 3 from a source close to the investigation.

This classification, carried out by the public prosecutor’s office of Nanterre (Hauts-de-Seine), where the cases had been disoriented, took place “In the absence of any element making it possible to characterize a criminal offense”, told AFP the same source. The singer’s lawyer, Hervé Temime, declined to comment.

Several complaints and reports

Two investigations had been opened against Patrick Bruel after the separate reports of two masseuses for alleged facts dating from 2019: in Perpignan, for sexual assault, and in Ajaccio, for sexual exhibition and sexual harassment. In Perpignan, a masseuse in her thirties accused Mr. Bruel of sexual assault during a massage session in the hotel where the singer was staying on the occasion of his participation in a music festival in Argelès -sur-Mer, in July 2019.

Patrick Bruel was also targeted by a preliminary investigation for sexual exhibition and sexual harassment after accusations in 2019 of another masseuse at the Radisson Blu hotel in Porticcio. “The young masseuse reports that when she arrives in Patrick Bruel’s dressing room, the door is locked and the light is dimmed. As she begins the massage, the singer also refuses to follow the protocol in this area, in particular to put on clothes, and will therefore remain naked ”, had clarified the prosecutor of the Republic of Ajaccio, Eric Bouillard. The singer acknowledges these facts, “However, specifying that when he lies on his back he covers himself with a towel. (…) The young woman also indicates that Mr. Bruel will have very specific requests for massages in certain areas. There, the singer denies the facts reported by the young woman “, had specified Mr. Bouillard.

During their investigations, the investigators also heard other women accusing Patrick Bruel of sexual assault, sexual exhibition or sexual harassment, for facts dating back to 2008 according to the accusers.

Consistent declines in aquatic biodiversity across diverse domains of life in rivers impacted by surface coal mining. Ecological Applications, 2021; 31 (6) DOI: 10.1002/eap.2389

But this biological diversity is severely threatened by mountaintop coal mining, whose downstream pollution impacts many of these species, according to a study in the September 2021 issue of the journal Ecological Applications.

Researchers found that the effects of mountaintop coal mining are even more widespread than previously reported: Streams from heavily mined watersheds harbor 40% fewer species than streams with cleaner water.

That lost biodiversity includes fish, macro-invertebrates (such as insects, clams and crustaceans), algae, fungi, bacteria, unicellular organisms called protists, and more. In other words: it isn’t just the particularly sensitive species that are being affected.

“The impacts are really distributed across the whole tree of life,” said Marie Simonin, a researcher at France’s National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) and lead author of the study.

Simonin and her team looked at 93 streams along a gradient ranging from heavily mined watersheds to relatively pristine streams across the Appalachian range in West Virginia. They found a clear relationship between the density of mining activities and loss of biodiversity: the more mining there is, the fewer species one finds.

“It was really surprising to see how consistent this decline in biodiversity is across all these really different groups of organisms, starting at really low levels of disturbance,” said Emily Bernhardt, Professor and Chair of biology at Duke University and senior author of the paper.

The results highlight another concerning pattern: significant diversity loss was detected in streams whose water was still far below the maximum disturbance standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“A very small increase in mining activities in the watershed is already too much,” Simonin said.

This means that the detrimental effects of pollutants in aquatic species start at much lower concentrations that previously assumed.

“By the time you get to the EPA’s reference point, you’ve already lost most of the species you’re going to lose,” Bernhardt said.

Although biodiversity loss due to mining had been shown in several groups of species separately, this study stands out by looking at the whole tree of life at once, in the same streams, at the same time. To do this, the team used an innovative method called environmental DNA (eDNA), which measures fragments of genetic materials that organisms leave behind in their environment.

This DNA could originate from excrement, lost bits of skin or scales, or from unicellular organisms. To collect it, researchers gathered water samples from each stream and filtered them through extremely fine filters. DNA stays stuck on the filters, and can then be extracted, sequenced, and sorted.

Groups of organisms, such as algae for example, share common genes, or segments of genes. By comparing the DNA obtained from the filters with DNA known to belong to a certain species or groups of species, scientists can determine what is hanging out in each stream, not unlike CSI agents running samples through their databases (but with far less drama).

This method holds huge promise for biodiversity assessments and water quality impacts.

“eDNA is an inexpensive approach that can provide substantial insights into drivers of biodiversity,” Bernhardt said. “It can open the possibility for monitoring water quality impacts over a much larger number of rivers across the globe.”

The results obtained with eDNA are well in line with those obtained with more traditional methods, with a fraction of the work. As an example, the team detected 28 species of fish in all 93 sampled mined streams by using eDNA. That is comparable with previous studies that had painstakingly collected, counted and identified the fish diversity of the same region. eDNA provided a much quicker and less invasive method of diversity assessment, with similar results.

“You take a very small amount of water and you’re able to see the impact on all those organisms. You don’t need to kill any animals, you don’t need a huge team of people skilled in identifying all of these species, everybody could do the field work,” Simonin said. “This can really change the scale at which we can monitor biodiversity.”

This research was funded by NSF Grant No. EAR-1417405.

The ‘Chicago’ actress and ‘For The Love Of Cars’ host has been training on a date to kick off Labor Day weekend!

Who said a workout couldn’t be romantic? Renée Zellweger, 52, and its beautiful Ant Anstead, 42, burst the biker shorts on Thursday, September 2, as the couple made a date to ride their bikes together in Laguna Beach, Calif. The two looked like they were enjoying a relaxed stroll to kick off their long weekend!

The pair both dressed very casually for the day soaking up the sun, but they still looked fabulous! Renée wore a mostly black outfit, with leggings and a jacket, perfect for working out. She also wore a navy baseball cap, blue shorts and a pair of pink sneakers. Ant opted for a gray outfit with a t-shirt and shorts, as well as black sneakers. It also rocked shades of black – a necessity on a sunny day.

Renee and Ant’s romance is intensifying, and the couple even went official on Instagram in August. After going official, the couple enjoyed more sun at Laguna Beach, as they strolled with the For the love of cars one year old son of the presenter Hudson. The couple reportedly started dating in June, nine months after Ant and his ex-wife Christina Haack to separate.

With nearly the whole of the MCU available to watch on Disney Plus, the Mouse House’s streaming platform is gradually adding other non-Marvel Studios Marvel movies — technically, we’re supposed to call them Marvel Legacy films now, but no one ever does — to its library, too. The latest to join the rest is, unfortunately, one of the weakest around. Namely, 2019’s Dark Phoenix, the final entry in Fox’s X-Men saga.

Dark Phoenix went up on D+ in the United States this Friday, September 3rd. So now is the perfect time to rewatch the movie if you haven’t seen it since it first premiered in theaters two summers ago. Though fans hoped that the last mainstream X-Men movie would be a fitting conclusion to the franchise, it wasn’t to be, as this second cinematic adaptation of the Dark Phoenix saga somehow managed to be just as bad as X-Men: The Last Stand, just in different ways.

The movie sees the action again hop forward another decade without the cast looking any older, this time taking place in the early 1990s. When the film opens, the X-Men are the world’s beloved heroes, being sent on a mission into space by the President himself. However, contact with a mysterious alien entity awakens a sleeping second personality within Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), which leads to the tragic death of one long-running character and the team splitting in two as they disagree on how to handle Jean, who is now a threat to the whole planet.

First-time director Simon Kinberg elected to go with a stripped-down vibe and somber tone for this one, which failed to capture the colorful cosmic melodrama that made the classic Marvel comics storyline such a hit. Not to mention those extensive reshoots that removed any vague similarity to Disney’s Captain Marvel, along with much of the excitement.

But, hey, if approached from the right frame of mind, a certain amount of entertainment value can be gleaned from Dark Phoenix. It’s available to watch now on Disney Plus.

With nearly the whole of the MCU available to watch on Disney Plus, the Mouse House’s streaming platform is gradually adding other non-Marvel Studios Marvel movies — technically, we’re supposed to call them Marvel Legacy films now, but no one ever does — to its library, too. The latest to join the rest is, unfortunately, one of the weakest around. Namely, 2019’s Dark Phoenix, the final entry in Fox’s X-Men saga.

Dark Phoenix went up on D+ in the United States this Friday, September 3rd. So now is the perfect time to rewatch the movie if you haven’t seen it since it first premiered in theaters two summers ago. Though fans hoped that the last mainstream X-Men movie would be a fitting conclusion to the franchise, it wasn’t to be, as this second cinematic adaptation of the Dark Phoenix saga somehow managed to be just as bad as X-Men: The Last Stand, just in different ways.

The movie sees the action again hop forward another decade without the cast looking any older, this time taking place in the early 1990s. When the film opens, the X-Men are the world’s beloved heroes, being sent on a mission into space by the President himself. However, contact with a mysterious alien entity awakens a sleeping second personality within Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), which leads to the tragic death of one long-running character and the team splitting in two as they disagree on how to handle Jean, who is now a threat to the whole planet.

In most cases, MDS is caused by mutations that arise in blood stem cells during a person’s life. These patients experience anemia, fatigue, and other complications, with a typical age of MDS diagnosis at 70 years and beyond. However, about 2% to 5% of people with MDS are born with mutations that predispose them to a form of MDS but even they do not experience symptoms until their 60s.

In 2016, other scientists documented that people with this inherited form of adult MDS share mutations in the DDX41 gene, but it had not been clear what role the mutations played. Now, a study led by experts at Cincinnati Children’s Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute, published Sept. 1, 2021, in Cell Stem Cell explains its significance.

Their discovery was based on extensive work to develop a more accurate mouse model of human MDS caused by mutations in DDX41. An important facet of the disease seems to depend on cells that acquire an additional mutation in their other copy of the DDX41 gene, creating blood stem cells with two DDX41 mutations.

The team reasoned that these cells, which are relatively rare in the patient’s bone marrow, could indirectly affect the rest of the bone marrow and trigger abnormal blood production. In this way, this minor cell population could become a driver of MDS. Their findings suggest that targeting this minor cell population could lead to a treatment to prevent some cases of MDS.

“Basically, these rare cells help create a polluted bone marrow environment that in turn allows other stem cells with MDS-related gene mutations to thrive,” says Daniel Starczynowski, PhD, senior author of the study. “Without the presence of these trigger cells, the bone marrow might go on making blood cells normally as it had throughout the patient’s life.”

While this study focuses on MDS, similar types of crosstalk between cells with different combinations of mutations may play a role in other diseases.

“To our knowledge, this is the first evidence that inherited or de novo forms of MDS can be mediated by a disease-modifying minor clone in the bone marrow,” Starczynowski says.

What is MDS?

Myelodysplastic syndromes include a group of disorders that damage bone marrow function. About 75% of cases occur in people over age 60, but the condition also affects children and young adults. About one in three cases of MDS progresses to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), according to the MDS Foundation.

Sometimes MDS occurs as a side effect of radiation or chemotherapies for cancer. Some cases might be connected to toxic environmental exposures or to rare inherited diseases like Fanconi anemia. However, in most cases, the cause of MDS remains unknown.

Advanced cases of MDS require bone marrow transplantation. The average survival rate without a bone marrow transplant is about six years, but some patients can die within months from rapid bone marrow failure.

Detecting a silent trigger

Starczynowski and his colleagues have been studying MDS for years. After learning from other studies in the field that an inherited mutation in the DDX41 gene had been associated with MDS, the team set out to develop the mouse model in hopes of understanding more about the gene mutation.

“The cells with this additional DDX41 mutation do not comprise a large portion of the bone marrow. In fact, it’s hard to get cells with that combination of mutations to grow at all,” says Tim Chlon, PhD, first author on the study. “Once we realized that the cells were rare in the patient bone marrow, we thought that crosstalk occurring between these cells and the other cells in the bone marrow might play a role in disease onset.”

The mouse experiments reveal that blood stem cells with mutations in both copies of the DDX41 gene have defective machinery (called ribosomes) for making new proteins. This prevents the stem cells from multiplying and forming normal amounts of new blood cells. Since these cells do not multiply efficiently, they do not cause bone marrow failure by themselves, but they influence the other cells in the bone marrow and contribute to ineffective blood cell production.

This process may help explain why this subset of people with MDS can feel totally normal into late adulthood before the condition suddenly sets in.

Next Steps

The research team plans further studies to determine whether targeting cells with the minor clonal DDX41 mutation will change the course of MDS in mouse models, which if successful, could lead to potential human drug development.

The findings may also serve as a springboard for other research to look for similar crosstalk between potentially overlooked minor cell populations and their more abundant henchmen.
