The influence of dietary fatty acids (FA) on intestinal brush border FA composition and nutrient transport functions was studied in broiler chickens. Ross chicks (2 wk old) were fed for 14 d a standard diet (CTL) or diets enriched with saturated fatty acids (SFA; 60 g/kg lard, LAR diet), (n-3) PUFA (60 g/kg linseed oil, LSO diet) and (n-6) PUFA (60 g/kg(More)
We report on a patient whose clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic findings are compatible with the Piepkorn type of lethal short-limb osteochondrodysplasia, but who also showed multinucleated giant chondrocytes in cartilage. Multinucleated giant cells are an unusual finding in osteochondrodysplasias, having been reported in atelosteogenesis type I and(More)
The reality of intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) practice is consistent with an efficient and highly precise radiation therapy technique to safely boost areas at risk for local recurrence. Long-term clinical experience has shown that IORT-containing multi-modality regimens appear to improve local disease control, if not survival in many diseases.(More)
Diets supplemented with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids can promote lipid peroxidation and the propagation of oxygen radicals. These effects can be prevented by taurine, a functional ingredient with antioxidant properties. Here, we examined whether there is a correlation between transepithelial taurine transport, on the one hand, and membrane fatty acid(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To analyse the programme activity and clinical innovation and/or technology developed over a period of 17 years with regard to the introduction and the use of intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) as a therapeutic component in a medical-surgical multidisciplinary cancer hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS To standardise and record this(More)
AIM The purpose of the study was to describe infrastructures, treatment modalities, and workload in radiation oncology (RO) in Spain, referred particularly to prostate cancer (PC). METHODS An epidemiologic, cross-sectional study was performed during 2008-2009. A study-specific questionnaire was sent to the 108 RO-registered departments. RESULTS One(More)
The authors report the results of a series of 16 cases of low-grade gliomas in whom radiosurgery was performed. This series started in 1977. All the tumours received a single radiosurgical session (with a mean dose of 21.7 Gy, 5-10 mm. collimator; one patient received two sessions and in another patient two different targets were irradiated in the same(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effect of olive powder combined with high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) on the inactivation of Bacillus cereus spores, to use it as an additional control hurdle in beverages pasteurised by this technology. With this purpose, reference medium prepared at different concentrations of olive powder was inoculated with B. cereus(More)
Pneumonia by Pneumocystis carinii (NPC) presents a high incidence in the evolution of patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Common clinical signs include fever, dry cough and dyspnea, in the presence of pulmonar interstitial affection with several degrees of hypoxemia. One hundred and sixteen patients with NPC and infection by HIV(More)
