OBJECTIVE Cellular and subcellular localization of estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) and estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta) in uterine leiomyomas. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University of La Laguna (ULL) and Canary University Hospital (HUC). PATIENT(S) Premenopausal and postmenopausal women with uterine leiomyomas. INTERVENTION(S) Hysterectomy(More)
AIM to determine the frequency and malignancy risk of colonic flat adenomas among patients with colorectal polyps in a Spanish population. METHODS 1300 consecutive colonoscopic examinations were reviewed; 640 polyps were detected and removed endoscopically in 298 patients. Chromoendoscopy with 0.2% indigo carmine was applied to clarify the macroscopical(More)
The rate of decline of renal function (RDRF) in the pre-end stage renal disease setting (pre-ESRD) is highly variable. Several factors have been involved as potential modifiers of renal failure progression. This retrospective study attempts to establish which were the main determinants of the RDRF in pre-ESRD patients followed in the predialysis consult.(More)
A patient with hydatid cyst of the presented stunted growth, normal renal function and no significant proteinuria. The radiological abdominal investigation disclosed, besides the hydatid cyst, horseshoe kidneys. Renal biopsy was performed during surgery. Immunofluorescence (direct and indirect) and immunoperoxidase studies revealed glomerular deposits of(More)
BACKGROUND Serum and urine concentrations of the activation peptide of carboxypeptidase B (CAPAP) and urinary trypsinogen activation peptide (TAP) as prognostic markers in acute pancreatitis were compared. METHOD Fifty-two patients with acute pancreatitis hospitalized within 24 hours after symptom onset were prospectively studied. Blood and urine samples(More)
The interaction of slime-producing Staphylococcus epidermidis (S+ strain) with human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) was analyzed. The phagocytosis index (PI) and the killing index (KI) were evaluated, and the effect of subinhibitory concentrations (sub-MICs) of sparfloxacin in this interaction was determined. The study was carried out in parallel with(More)
BACKGROUND To determine incidence rate, etiology and risk factors for central venous catheter (CVC)-related infections in critically-ill patients, a prospective cohort study was conducted in the general Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a 212 bed Hospital in Florianópolis, Brazil. MATERIAL AND METHOD Patients admitted to ICU between May 1993 and February 1994,(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary fish oil, rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, decreases TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-2 levels, which may benefit renal transplant recipients. To explore this possibility, we studied the effect of fish oil on the incidence of acute rejection, in situ expression of interleukins (TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-2) and renal function after(More)
Deregulated steroids are involved in different hormone-dependent tumors, including benign and malignant uterine neoplasms. Leiomyomas (LM) are estrogen and progesterone-dependent benign tumors, whereas "bizarre or atypical LMs" (AL) are considered a subgroup of LM and clinically benign, although their malignant potential is suspect. Uterine leiomyosarcomas(More)
