Facebook has bowed to public pressure and agreed to take down some versions of a video showing a baby being dunked in water and swung by its head. Facebook last night said the two-minute clip showed 'baby yoga' but today backtracked and confirmed it will remove any reported instances of the clip appearing on the site where people encourage dangerous behaviour. But it will not remove cases where users are 'raising awareness or condemning the practice'. The video shows a 'terrified, sobbing baby' being repeatedly swung by its head and immersed in a bucket of water. The video shows a naked newborn baby being flung around by the head and dunked in water.
FOXN1 deficient nude severe combined immunodeficiency
Gale Academic OneFile - Document - FOXN1 deficient nude severe combined immunodeficiency
Nude severe combined immunodeficiency SCID is a rare inherited syndrome caused by a functional deficiency of FOXN1, a transcription factor essential for the development and function of thymic epithelial cells TECs . The thymus is the primary lymphoid organ responsible for the development of T lymphocytes from bone marrow derived haematopoietic precursors . The unique three-dimensional structure of TECs forms the appropriate physiological microenvironment for the generation T-cells able to effect immune responses against foreign pathogens whilst being tolerant to the body's own proteins designated "self" . The study of loss-of-function mutations in Foxn1 in animal models has shown its critical importance in TEC differentiation, homeostatic maintenance and T-cell lymphopoiesis [3, ]. Absent thymus athymia , alopecia universalis AU and nail dystrophy were first noted in in a spontaneously occurring phenotype in the so-called nude mouse .
