The aim of this study was to determine whether intravenously administered multipotent stromal cells from human bone marrow (hMSCs) can improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI) without long-term engraftment and therefore whether transitory paracrine effects or secreted factors are responsible for the benefit conferred. hMSCs were injected(More)
With the objectives of dengue prevention, health promotion, and action-based research, two experiments were conducted in pilot areas of Buenos Aires and Vicente López, Argentina. In each area, community, government, and non-governmental references were identified. The study included an entomological survey (with ovitraps), environmental survey (with field(More)
The plasma glycoprotein, dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH), is present in markedly increased amounts in experimental, streptozocin (STZ)-diabetic rats, reaching a maximum at about the first week and maintaining a plateau for several months afterward. High glycemia values are observed simultaneously. Insulin treatment is observed to keep the glycemia and(More)
Heart failure is a substantial cause of increased morbidity and mortality in the African-American population, with poorer prognosis versus white patients. Systolic heart failure is predominantly caused by poorly controlled hypertension in African-Americans. Overall, African-Americans remain underrepresented in morbidity and mortality heart failure trials,(More)
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) plays a central role in the regulation of water and electrolyte balance. Dysregulation of AVP secretion, along with stimulation of AVP V2 receptors, is responsible for hyponatremia (serum sodium concentration <135 mEq/L) in congestive heart failure (CHF). The stimulation of atrial and arterial baroreceptors in response to(More)
This study aimed to assess lipid oxidation and biogenic amine (BA) development in "muxama", a dry-cured tuna muscle product, as affected by salt content, antioxidant type and ageing time. Overall, BA contents decreased with NaCl level (2785.1mgkg-1, 1148.1mgkg-1 and 307.7mgkg-1) and increased with ageing time (366.2mgkg-1, 1711.8mgkg-1 and 2959.2mgkg-1 in(More)
