Since the advent of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD), subsequent cognitive and neuropsychiatric effects of this procedure have become well-chronicled. Yet, thermolitic lesion of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is still a valid option when DBS cannot be applied, and little has been published regarding its impact on(More)
A code ${\cal C}$ is $\Z_2\Z_4$-additive if the set of coordinates can be partitioned into two subsets $X$ and $Y$ such that the punctured code of ${\cal C}$ by deleting the coordinates outside $X$ (respectively, $Y$) is a binary linear code (respectively, a quaternary linear code). In this paper $\Z_2\Z_4$-additive codes are studied. Their corresponding(More)

There is an increasing number of children with traumatic and congenital hand amputations or reductions. Children's prosthetic needs are complex due to their small size, constant growth, and psychosocial development. Families’ financial resources play a crucial role in the prescription of prostheses for their children, especially when private insurance and(More)
Microphysiological systems provide a tool to simulate normal and pathological function of organs for prolonged periods. These systems must incorporate the key functions of the individual organs and enable interactions among the corresponding microphysiological units. The relative size of different microphysiological organs and their flow rates are scaled in(More)

Endothelin-converting enzyme-1c (ECE-1c) is a membrane metalloprotease involved in endothelin-1 synthesis, which has been shown in vitro to have a role in breast, ovary and prostate cancer cell invasion. N-terminal end of ECE-1c displays three putative phosphorylation sites for the protein kinase CK2. We studied whether CK2 phosphorylates N-terminal end of(More)
We have analyzed the relation of prevalence rates in Spanish regions with a series of human, environmental, and ecological factors. We find that the variability in migraine rates found between Spanish regions may be explained by interregional differences in the percentage of daily smokers, percentage of alcohol consumers, percentage of population presenting(More)

We try to identify the relationship between immunohistochemical marker expression and lymph node involvement in a cohort of 282 patients followed for 5 years after curative resection for NSCLC. In 189 patients (67 %), lymph nodes were unaffected while 93 patients (33 %) showed nodal involvement. The expression of 15 molecular markers was determined from(More)
