BACKGROUND Quantification and description of patients recently infected by HIV can provide an accurate estimate of the dynamics of HIV transmission. Between 2006 and 2008 in Catalonia, we estimated the prevalence of recent HIV infection among newly diagnosed cases, described the epidemiological characteristics of the infection according to whether it was(More)

OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to assess the prevalence of transmitted HIV-1 drug resistances (TDR) and HIV-1 subtypes in recently infected patients in Catalonia between 2003 and 2005 and to describe the characteristics of these patients according to the presence or absence of TDR and HIV-1 subtype. METHODS After application of the(More)
The p53 gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 17. It encodes a 53-kd nuclear protein (p53) found in scant amounts in normal tissue. Mutations of the p53 gene have been reported in different human tumours. In breast cancer, it has been noted that the overexpression of p53 protein in the nucleus is an indicator of poor prognosis, although there is a(More)
The lower digestive tract, in contrast to the gastroduodenal tract, is infrequently affected by non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAID), and rarely referred to in medical literature. We report the case of a 40-year-old man who presented with bloody diarrhea following treatment with NSAID. The fiber gastroscopy was normal. The fiber colonoscopy showed(More)
Ocular toxoplasmosis is an uncommon complication of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), and it is generally described associated with central nervous system (CNS) lesions. We describe two cases of ocular toxoplasmosis in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected patients, without concurrent CNS infection. Both developed bilateral or unilateral(More)
The infecting pathogens most commonly implicated in prosthetic joint infections are staphylococci, streptococci, and gram-negative rods. Prosthetic infections caused byBrucella spp, are rarely described in the literature. Treatment of prosthetic infections remains complex and controversial, the most accepted course being antibiotic treatment with removal or(More)
