OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiologic findings of sclerosing mesenteritis and to describe certain signs that suggest the diagnosis. CONCLUSION Sclerosing mesenteritis represents a single disease with two radiologically different variants. In an appropriate clinical setting, radiologic features can suggest the diagnosis,(More)
This study was designed to embrace three areas: a) serologic and radiologic diagnosis and surgical treatment of hydatidosis in an asymptomatic human population, b) animal diagnosis and the treatment of dogs, and c) evaluation of extent of knowledge and performance of educational interventions among rural families and health, livestock, and education(More)
Correlations and regression between fatness and carcass conformation measurements and carcass tissue composition has been studied for both sexes in suckling lambs, with slaughter weights between 9 and 15 kg. Objective fat measurements showed higher correlations than subjective fat measurements, mainly with carcass fat. Conformation measurements presented(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to assess the physical signs and clinical symptoms associated with endometriosis in infertile women. STUDY DESIGN This case-control study was carried out in an academic tertiary hospital. There were 174 infertile women with endometriosis and 174 infertile women without endometriosis, all of them studied by laparoscopy. Before(More)
A wide spectrum of disease processes involve the ischiorectal fossa, including congenital and developmental lesions; inflammatory, traumatic, and hemorrhagic conditions; primary tumors; and pathologic processes outside the ischiorectal fossa with secondary involvement. Both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging are useful in the(More)

BACKGROUND Human enteroviruses (HEV) are the commonest cause of viral meningitis as well as other pathologies, therefore HEV characterization is important both in patient management and epidemiological investigation. OBJECTIVES A 10-year study of patients with enteroviral infection was carried out in Spain to determine the underlying etiology. STUDY(More)
Docking functions are believed to be the essential component of docking algorithms. Both physically and statistically based functions have been proposed, but there is no consensus about their relative performances. Here, we propose an evaluation approach based on exhaustive enumeration of all possible docking solutions obtained with a discretized(More)
There is consensus that muscarinic and nicotinic receptors expressed in vestibular hair cells and afferent neurons are involved in the efferent modulation of the electrical activity of the afferent neurons. However the underlying mechanisms of postsynaptic control in neurons are not well understood. In our work we show that the activation of muscarinic(More)
