BACKGROUND Recurrent acute respiratory tract infections (RARTIs) in children are related to IgG subclass deficiencies. The aim of the trial was to evaluate the effect of OM-85 BV in the number of RARTIs as well as in the IgG subclass levels. METHODS This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Patients of ages three to six(More)
BACKGROUND Acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs) are a major cause of childhood morbidity and mortality. Immunostimulants (IS) may reduce the incidence of ARTIs. OBJECTIVES To determine the efficacy and safety of IS in preventing ARTIs in children. SEARCH STRATEGY We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The(More)
Recent studies have shown the effect of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) on the regulation of vascular function; however, its role in the model of metabolic syndrome remains unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of losartan on PVAT-derived vascular dysfunction in fructose-induced hypertensive rats. Rats were fed with either water, 10%(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adolescents is increasing in both the United States and Mexico. OBJECTIVE The goal of this article was to assess the efficacy and safety of sibutramine in obese Mexican adolescents. METHODS This was a 6-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective clinical trial of(More)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA) supplementation on metabolic state and gene expression in subcutaneous adipose tissues of obese adolescents. Obese adolescents (n = 26, 10 girls and 16 boys) aged 12.4 ± 2.1 years were assigned to a 12-week regimen of n-3 PUFA intake. Five times per(More)
