WZRD1 GENE, A POSSIBLE MARKER FOR SQUIBIDITY DISORDER IN HOMO SAPIENS

Annals of Praetachoral Mechanics (2016). Vol 2. Advanced online publication. download pdf ABSTRACT From the limited number of studies previously done on Squibidity, there is great potential for advancements that would further our understanding of this disorder, and which would benefit both magical and non-magical people. Squibidity, is one of the most mysterious conditions to affect the Wizarding world. It is estimated that approximately 1 out of every 1200 individuals, who are born into a Wizarding family, are affected. The severity of this condition varies, but most individuals with this phenotype lack the ability to perform magic of any kind,…

THE EFFECT OF NOVEL TELOMERASE REVERSE-TRANSCRIPTASE wTERT2 ON THE PATHOGENESIS OF WOOKIEE IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS

Annals of Praetachoral Mechanics (2015). Vol 1. pp81 download pdf ABSTRACT The Wookiee population on Kashyyyk is responsible for a majority of the labour workforce in the Mid Rim. Maintaining and improving Wookiee lifespan and productivity is vital for Imperial operations in the area. The long Wookiee natural lifespan of 400 standard galactic years is truncated in approximately 3% of the popula- tion. These Wookiees are afflicted with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and show early-onset leukocyte se- nescence. Once diagnosed, Wookiees live for an average of 30 more years before death. This translates into a 70% reduction of life for…

FORCING THE WOOKIEE. HOW TO BE BOLD BEING BALD.

Annals of Praetachoral Mechanics (2014). Vol 1. pp79-87 download pdf ABSTRACT The lack of scientific findings in the biological relationship with the Force has limited the therapies available against Force hypersensitivity to psychological therapy. Our lab has unearthed the first link between the Force-enabling midi-chlorians and a regulated biological process, hair growth. Alopecia areata (AA) is a hair condition depicted by hair loss with varying degrees of severity. A recent study has revealed a strong correlation of AA with enhanced connection to the Force. Exome sequencing has revealed two hot spot mutations in the transmembrane protein “so much hair” hormone…

CHARACTERIZATION OF KASHA-MEDIATED SUSCEPTIBILITY AND HISTOPATHOLOGICAL HALLMARKS OF EARLY-ONSET CHEWHEIMER’S DISEASE

Don’t forget, this paper is part of a collection of Wookiee scientific reports that will be published in the print edition of the SCQ. More details can be found here. Annals of Praetachoral Mechanics. (2014). Vol 1. pp71-88 pdf download ABSTRACT Since the rise of Force-vector injections (FVIs), the incidence of early-onset CD (eCD) has escalated significantly, with a large impact on quality of life in the wookiee community. However, while a large number of wookiees became afflicted with eCD, a small number remained healthy. This study first aimed to discover any genetic discrepancies between wookiees who developed eCD following…

WOOKIEE FOREPLAY: TRANSGENERATIONAL EPIGENETIC REGULATION OF FORCE-SENSITIVITY BY ELABORATE DUET SONG

Vol 1. pp59-69 pdf download ABSTRACT Wookiees (W. wookiee) are monogamous, sentient mammals that have traditionally produced long and elaborate duet songs. It has been repeatedly proposed that duet mating songs for Wookiees might function to improve the fitness of…
