In the past few years there has been a resurgence of interest in the protein composition of human milk. Up to now the influence of maternal diet and of the mothers' nutritional status on the protein composition of human milk have not been fully clarified. We have evaluated the relationship between the mothers' socioeconomic status and weight and the protein(More)
The fatty acid profile of red blood cell phospholipids and the total phospholipid and cholesterol contents of erythrocyte membrane in preterm infants in the first month of life were studied. Influences of human milk and adapted formula and dietary nucleotides supplementation at a level similar to that found in human milk were evaluated. Nineteen preterm(More)
To report an uncommon case of hand, foot and mouth disease, (HFMD) in an immunocompetent adult; a highly infectious disease, characterized by the appearance of vesicles on the mouth, hands and feet, associated with coxsackieviruses and enteroviruses; including a literature review.

Cytarabine (Cyt) is an antimetabolite used primarily in the treatment of leukemia, and both immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. We studied a 9-year-old girl with lymphoblastic leukemia, who developed three anaphylactoid reactions during Cyt treatment courses over a 1-year period. Three years later, Cyt was required again.(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of dietary nucleotide supplementation in preterm infants during the first month of life on the intestinal permeability to lactulose, mannitol and to beta-lactoglobulin and on the development of circulating antibodies to beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-casein. Twenty-seven preterm infants were enrolled(More)
Dietary nucleotides ( NTs) are considered nonessential nutrients, but under certain conditions may behave as semi-essential. This means that they may become essential when the exogenous supply is insufficient for normal function, even though their absence from the diet does not lead to a classic clinical deficiency syndrome.’ Recent studies have examined(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis is an allergic T-cell mediated skin inflammation. Staphylococcus aureus colonization is very common in cutaneous atopic dermatitis lesions. The cutaneous lymphocyte-associated antigen (CLA) is a T cell skin homing receptor that defines T lymphocytes associated with the cutaneous immune response. OBJECTIVE To study whether CLA+(More)
