Exclusion criteria included a positive clinical history of REM sleep behavior disorder , an identical parasomnia which involves violent dream-related behaviors emerging during REM rest. Age the sleepwalkers ranged from 18 to 58 years with a median age group of 30. Outcomes were compared with 100 healthy control topics. Triggering elements that increased both the severity and regularity of episodes had been reported in 59 %, related mainly to stressful events, strong positive emotions, rest deprivation, and less often to drug or alcohol intake or intense evening physical activity. All of these elements promote increased slow wave rest and NREM sleep instability.Phylogenetic evaluation of the SNPs was completed also, by using maximum-likelihood methods and Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo strategies. A subgroup of SNPs, not including those from repetitive genes, was also analyzed. Further details are given in the Supplementary Appendix. Outcomes Epidemiologic and Clinical Features of the Patients Between May 2006 and December 2008, a total of 41 cases of tuberculosis were diagnosed in the outbreak community , elevating the annual incidence rate for the region by a factor of more than 10.
