This report describes the metabolism of apolipoprotein B-containing lipoproteins in seven familial hypercholesterolemic (FH) homozygotes and compares the results to the values obtained from five healthy control subjects. The concentration, composition, and metabolism of large, triglyceride-rich very low density lipoproteins (VLDL1, Sf 60-400) were the same(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary, outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) program in patients with severe and very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). PR is recommended in advanced COPD, but there is limited evidence on the effectiveness of PR in reducing health care resources when applied in outpatients. (More)
PURPOSE To assess sensitivity, specificity, and agreement among automated event analysis, automated trend analysis, and expert evaluation to detect glaucoma progression. METHODS This was a prospective study that included 37 eyes with a follow-up of 36 months. All had glaucomatous disks and fields and performed reliable visual fields every 6 months. Each(More)
PURPOSE To assess Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) original parameters for identifying glaucomatous damage and to evaluate differences among glaucomatous, ocular hypertensive, and normal eyes. DESIGN Cross-sectional prospective study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study was conducted at 2 centers. The study population consisted of 55 normal(More)
Two peptides, NA1 and NA2, which we previously suggested to be associated with high density lipoproteins (HDLs), have been purified. Polyclonal antibodies against each peptide and a monoclonal antibody against NA2 have been used to further characterize them and their association with HDL. Immunoblotting studies revealed that the peptides form a complex of(More)
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women, and its incidence increases with age, with the majority of patients diagnosed after menopause. However, in 15-25% of cases, patients are premenopausal at the time of diagnosis, and about 7% of them are below the age of 40. Therefore, a considerable amount of young women are diagnosed with breast cancer(More)
This report examines the correlation of serum apoprotein D with other lipoprotein lipids and apoproteins in a healthy, male population and compares the levels of high density lipoprotein apoprotein D of this control population with 2 samples composed of male, acute myocardial infarction patients and their healthy, male, first-degree relatives. Highly(More)
Planning and monitoring of landscapes cannot be reduced to its outstanding features, but must take into account all its characteristics. In this context, the relationship of landscape with roads is of particular importance, because roads alter the territory's environmental resources but also constitute a resource through which the individual comes into(More)
