Recent studies establish VG5Q (angiogenic factor) as a susceptibility gene for KTW syndrome and show that increased angiogenesis is a molecular pathogenic mechanism of KTW syndrome .
Diagnosis of KTW syndrome is mainly clinical (Table 1).
A multidisciplinary approach to management of KTW syndrome is warranted .
With the addition of KTW moulds, Husky says it will become the closure industry's only provider of complete injection moulding systems, including mould, machine, hot runner and temperature controller, as well as a range of consulting and after-sales services.
The management of KTW, including managing directors Anja and Claus Ziegler, will continue to be closely involved in leading the business after the completion of the transaction.
In a related development, Husky is planning a strategic review for KTW's custom injection moulding division, Injectoplast.
