Bisphosphonates have been associated with a serious adverse reaction known as bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ). The aim of this study was to describe its clinical characteristics in patients with dental implants who were taking bisphosphonates orally. We made a retrospective multicentre study in 3 hospitals in Galicia, Spain. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the effect of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status and other variables on the outcome of tuberculosis treatment in Spain. PATIENTS AND METHODS Multicenter retrospective cohort study in 6 autonomous communities of Spain (from May 1996 to April 1997).

Renal lymphangiectasia is a rare renal entity. Symptoms and radiologic findings are well defined, but its clinical evolution is not totally well known. We report a severe case of renal lymphangiectasia with a large right perirenal collection and ascites. Both resolved 6 years later on computed tomography, but right intrarenal involvement worsened. To our(More)
We studied the antimicrobial susceptibility of bacteria isolated from sputum from patients with cystic fibrosis in our hospital during 2001 and 2002. The most frequently isolated microorganisms were Staphylococcus aureus (59.89%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (49.45%), Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (4.9%) and Haemophilus influenzae (3.8%). The rate of(More)
Previous studies have shown that female rats exhibit different patterns of drug seeking during multiple phases of cocaine addiction when compared with males. However, the underlying mechanisms for these sex differences remain largely unknown. Here, we used a cocaine self-administration/reinstatement model to examine neuronal activation, as determined by Fos(More)
A recent line of research has suggested that memory systems evolved to encode fitness-relevant information more effectively than other types of information-a phenomenon known as the "survival processing effect" (Nairne, Thompson, & Pandeirada Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition 33:263-273, 2007). However, the basis for the(More)
In the Murcia region of south east Spain, epidemics of transmissible gastroenteritis-like disease have occurred in pigs every three years since 1980. In 1987 a sero-epidemiological survey was conducted to estimate the prevalence and spread of transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) infection among breeding pigs and farms, and to determine any association(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of clindamycin-primaquine as treatment of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) is similar to that of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol and endovenous pentamidine. The untoward effects of this combination are scarce and of mild degree. METHODS Patients presenting with microbiologically confirmed PCP (bronchoalveolar lavage or induced(More)
Several instruments to carry and put the silver amalgam into de apical foramen for it's posterior condensation without spreading this material over the periodontal tissues, bone and adyacent mucosa, has been designed along the years. This article describes an easier and cheaper way to make an endodontic amalgam carrier by the adaptation between en 18 and 22(More)
