OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of concomitant methotrexate (MTX) on subcutaneous (SC) abatacept immunogenicity, and to assess safety and efficacy. METHODS This phase III, open-label study had a 4-month short-term (ST) period and an ongoing long-term extension (LTE) period. Rheumatoid arthritis patients were stratified to receive SC abatacept (125(More)
Case-control study for evaluation of cost and outcome of nosocomial surgical site infection in primary hip arthroplasty during a period of 5 years. Mean hospitalization time in the orthopedic service was 54 days for cases, and 13 days for control (p < 0.05). Mean hospitalization time in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) was 1.1 days for cases. There were 0.83 post(More)
We report a 11 years old male diagnosed as a X-linked hyper-IgM syndrome that presented with recurrent infections and sclerosing cholangitis and later developed a gallbladder cancer. Immunological evaluation showed decreased levels of serum IgG and IgA with elevated levels of IgM. Study of CD40 ligand expression on mitogen activated peripheral blood(More)
This article presents the design, implementation and use of a remote network lab with multiple users support as an aid to teaching computer networks. The purpose is to enable multiple students complement their theoretical learning with practical experimentation in networking devices which can be carried out synchronously to theoretical classes and from any(More)
Hemocytes in the circulation and kidney islets, as well as their phagocytic responses to microorganisms and fluorescent beads, have been studied in Pomacea canaliculata, using flow cytometry, light microscopy (including confocal laser scanning microscopy) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Three circulating hemocyte types (hyalinocytes,(More)
Liver X receptors (LXRs) are nuclear receptors that play central roles in the transcriptional control of lipid metabolism. The ability of LXRs to integrate metabolic and inflammation signalling makes them attractive targets for intervention in human metabolic diseases. Several oxidized metabolites of cholesterol (oxysterols) are endogenous LXR ligands, that(More)
