OBJECTIVE To analyze the biochemical profile and to characterize metabolic syndrome (MS) in patients with cardiologic medical assistance using NCEP-ATPIII and IDF definitions. METHODS Two hundred patients and 140 controls were studied, considering total cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol (HDLc), LDL-cholesterol (LDLc), VLDL-cholesterol (VLDLc),(More)
Infectious agents have been implicated in the induction of antiphospholipid antibodies and the development of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. The objective of this study was to evaluate the association of anticardiolipin antibodies with Chagas' disease antibodies. A total of 45 patients, who were positive for Chagas' disease (American Trypanosomiasis)(More)
BACKGROUND The manifestation of cholelithiasis after bariatric surgery may depend on genetic factors related to lipid metabolism, including apolipoprotein E (APOE) and cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) gene polymorphisms. METHODS We investigated the association between APOE HhaI and CETP TaqIB polymorphisms [PCR-RFLP] and occurrence of(More)
The pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) seems to involve genetic susceptibility to neurodegeneration. APOE gene has been considered a risk factor for PD. This study aimed to evaluate the association of APOE polymorphism with PD and its influence on lipid profile. We studied 232 PD patients (PD) and 169 individuals without the disease. The studied(More)
Anticardiolipin antibodies have been associated as a risk factor of atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between anticardiolipin antibodies and intermittent claudication. Forty consecutive patients (33 men, 7 women; age range: 45-84 years, mean 65.5) who were seen in the angiology and vascular surgery department with(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM We studied the molecular pathogenesis of obesity, involving complex interactions between environmental and genetic factors, with a focus on the leptin gene. It was our aim to characterize the LEP -2548G>A leptin polymorphism and lipid profile in obese and normal-weight individuals. METHODS A total of 212 individuals were divided into the(More)
In this paper, we define and implement the design of an optimized control structure for the activated sludge process given as COST/IWA benchmark simulation model No.1. Emphasis is given to the identification of controlled variables that contribute to minimize economic costs while the effluent requirements are met. This is achieved considering the(More)
