INTRODUCTION Severity and outcome assessments are crucial in trauma. Our aim was to describe the role of a group of cytokines (TNFα, IL-6, IL-10, and HMGB-1) and ICAM-1 as severity and outcome assessment tools and their kinetics in the first 72 h after severe trauma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Authors designed a prospective cohort study of severe polytrauma(More)
Aortic dissection is a life-threatening emergency and can present neurological symptoms, mainly associated with a stroke. This represents a challenge to the neurologist because of the necessity to treat the patient with a thrombolytic in a narrow time window, which could have a fatal outcome. A 70-year-old male patient presented in emergency department with(More)
The electrochemical reduction of Cu(II) bis(thiosemicarbazone) complexes [Cu(II)(btsc)] is accompanied by protonation to give an unstable Cu(I) intermediate [Cu(btscH(2))](+). The nature of this intermediate was probed by reaction of bis(thiosemicarbazone) ligands with a Cu(I) precursor which gave a novel helical dimeric dicationic complex. The dependence(More)
Cobalt(II), nickel(II), and copper(II) (1, 2, and 3) complexes of the dianionic form of the bis(phenolate) ligand N,N-bis(3,4-dimethyl-2-hydroxybenzyl)-N',N'-dimethylethylenediamine (H2L) have been synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of the appropriate metal in an acetonitrile solution of the ligand. When copper is used as the anode, the addition of(More)
The spectrum of human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) is changing. New drug treatments have reduced morbidity and mortality of this disease, therefore it is necessary to start treating the HIV infection as a chronical disease. The association of the stroke with the HIV infection was inicially thought to be a result of other opportunistic infeccions(More)
Zn(pymt)2 and Cd(pymt)2 complexes have been obtained by electrochemical oxidation o f anodic zinc or cadmium in acetonitrile solutions o f pyrimidine-2-thione (Hpymt). When 2,2'bipyridine (bipy) or 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) was added to the electrochemical cell, the adducts [M(pymt)2(bipy)], or [M(pymt)2(phen)] (M = Zn or Cd) were obtained. Crystals o f(More)
X-Ray, Zinc, Schiff Bases, Electrochemical Synthesis The electrochemical synthesis and physico-chemical properties of neutral zinc(II) complexes of bidentate Schiff bases derived from salicylaldehydes are presented together with the X-ray structure of bis[N-(4-methylphenyl)salicylaldiminato]zinc(II). The crystal is monoclinic, a = 21.877(3), b = 8.801(2), c(More)
The electrochemical oxidation o f nickel in pyrimidine-2-thione (pym tH) solution yields a compound o f formula [Ni(pymt)-,]. When pyridine (py), 2,2'-bipyridine (bipy) or 1,10-phenan­ throline (phen) are added to the solution phase, the product obtained is a complex [Ni(pymt)2py2] or [Ni(pymt)2L] (L = bipy or phen). The crystal structure o f(More)
This paper presents the first report of an exploratory study involving the use of the software Hyperscore in general music classes as a mean to facilitate musical understanding and conceptual transferability from a technology mediated music learning context to the normal music classroom setting. It was developed in one school in three classes of 26 children(More)
