We found the following results in 30 patients with intraocular cysticercosis: (1) a higher incidence in the first two decades of life compared with neurocysticercosis, (2) living cysticerci concomitant with inflammatory reactions, (3) diseases related to immune dysfunction in 17% of the cases, (4) anticysticercus antibodies in 57% of cases, (5) blindness in(More)
OBJECTIVES: We previously demonstrated that diaspirin crosslinked hemoglobin (DCLHb, Baxter Healthcare Corp.) improves systemic oxygen uptake in sepsis. Therefore, our objective was to study the effects of DCLHb on microcirculatory blood flow in septic rats. DESIGN: Prospective and randomized experimental study in a university-affiliated laboratory.(More)
