Human pi, mu and alpha class glutathione S transferases (GST) have been localized immunohistologically in normal skin, naevi and melanoma. Pi GSTs were found principally in the stratum basalis and, to a lesser extent, in the superficial layers. Normal melanocytes showed strong nuclear and cytoplasmatic staining. Distribution of GST mu in the epidermis(More)

BACKGROUND Current treatment of malignant melanoma of the leg includes ilioinguinal lymphadenectomy (IIL). Standard open IIL (open IIL) includes sectioning of the inguinal ligament to gain access to the iliac nodes. Extraperitoneal laparoscopic IIL (lap IIL) is a feasible, less aggressive approach. It can be combined with standard superficial(More)
In a prospective study of 72 patients with stroke and atrial fibrillation, we classified strokes as cardioembolic or noncardioembolic based on arterial assessment using Doppler sonography and angiography. We analyzed and cross-tabulated 18 clinical characteristics and found four to be significantly associated with a cardioembolic mechanism: stroke with(More)
INTRODUCTION We want to detect the prevalence of cognitive prevalence deterioration in the elderly population of 80-years-old or older, their grade of deterioration and the causal pathogenic entity. METHOD DESIGN a cross-sectional population study, including a first phase of screening and a second one of diagnosis confirmation. STUDY SUBJECTS a total(More)
BACKGROUND There is very little evidence of the similarity of the mechanics of maternal and bottle feeding. We assessed the mechanics of sucking in exclusive breastfeeding, exclusive bottle feeding, and mixed feeding.

Kawasaki disease is an acute self-limited systemic vasculitis common in childhood. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is an effective treatment, and it reduces the incidence of cardiac complications. Egami score has been validated to identify IVIG non-responder patients in Japanese population, and it has shown high sensitivity and specificity to identify(More)
UNLABELLED The success of laparoscopic cholecystectomy has prompted the application of laparoscopic techniques to other abdominal procedures. Laparoscopic splenectomy poses certain specific difficulties for the control of the vascular pedicle, handling and mobilisation of a parenchymatous organ and the retrieval of the specimen.
