The renal function of 74 children with malignant mesenchymal tumors in complete remission and who have received the same ifosfamide chemotherapy protocol (International Society of Pediatric Oncology Malignant Mesenchymal Tumor Study 84 [SIOP MMT 84]) were studied 1 year after the completion of treatment. Total cumulative doses were 36 or 60 g/m2 of(More)
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, escalating dose study, 44 children receiving cancer chemotherapy of various degrees of emetogenicity were randomly allocated to once-daily treatment with tropisetron 0.05 mg/kg (6 patients), 0.10 mg/kg (5 patients), 0.20 mg/kg (6 patients), 0.33 mg/kg (6 patients), 0.50 mg/kg (6 patients) or placebo (15 patients).

This study was designed to determine whether the measurement of interleukin (IL)-6 in urine is useful for distinguishing between acute pyelonephritis and lower urinary tract infection. This observational study was carried out at León Hospital (Spain) on 35 patients (ten boys) aged between 0 and 14 years with urinary tract infection. Urinary levels of IL-6(More)
Between January 1982 and December 1987, of 283 children with neuroblastoma treated in the Pediatric Department of Institut Gustave Roussy, 34 were stage IV-S. Two groups were distinguished according to the initial clinical presentation: 16/34 patients had life-threatening symptoms and needed immediate treatment, and 18/34 had no life-threatening symptoms.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate if serum C-reactive protein (s-CRP) and interleukin 6 (s-IL6) provide information for predicting renal damage and for DMSA patient selection in children with urinary tract infection (UTI). METHODS This observational study was carried out in children with UTI. s-CRP and s-IL6 were measured at UTI diagnosis. Patients forming renal(More)
Physical exercise is often terminated not due to muscle fatigue but because of inadequate neural drive in the serotonergic system. Modifications in activity levels of the serotonergic system, induced by variations in the availability of L-tryptophan (a serotonin precursor) may alter neural drive. We examined the effect of L-tryptophan supplementation on(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the experience of a renal transplantation unit in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS A prospective study was performed between 2005 and 2010 among 23 patients with ESRD. RESULTS In this study 83% of HIV-infected patients(More)
The aim of this study was to inform best evidence-based practice by collating and disseminating the experiences of members of the International Pediatric Peritoneal Dialysis Network with children having concurrent ventriculoperitoneal shunts (VPS) and peritoneal dialysis catheters (PDC).
