Metabolomic and lipidomic analyses have been used for the profiling of neurodegenerative processes, both in targeted and untargeted approaches. In this work we have applied these techniques to the study of CSF samples of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients (n = 9), compared with samples of non-MS individuals (n = 9) using mass-spectrometry. We have used(More)
Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the Human Hemochromatosis (HFE) gene, C282Y and H63D, are the major variants associated to altered iron status and it is well known that these mutations are in linkage disequilibrium with certain Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)-A alleles. In addition, the C282Y SNP has been previously suggested to confer(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to analyze the principal variables that determine the choice of the method of treatment and the outcome in condylar fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of 104 mandibular condyle fractures to analyze and determine the relation between the principal clinical variables and the(More)
Triathlon is a popular outdoor endurance sport performed under a variety of environmental conditions. The aim of this study was to assess physiological variables before and after a half-ironman triathlon in the heat and to analyse their relationship with performance. Thirty-four well-trained triathletes completed a half-ironman triathlon in a mean dry(More)
Genomic variant analysis is a complex process that allows to find and study genome mutations. For this purpose, analysis and tests from both biological and statistical points of view must be conducted. Biological data for this kind of analysis are typically stored according to the Variant Call Format (VCF), in gigabytes-sized files that cannot be(More)
Cerebellar ataxia is one of the most frequent syndromes associated with autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD-ab). Antibodies recognize the isoform GAD65, which is the standard biomarker, but additional immunoreactivity against GAD67 is found in high proportion of patients with GAD-ab-associated neurological disorders. We describe the case(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study is to determine the effects of a caffeine-containing energy drink on female volleyball players' performance. METHODS Thirteen elite female volleyball players ingested 3 mg·kg of caffeine with an energy drink or the same drink without caffeine (placebo drink) in a double-blind and randomized study. Then, participants(More)
Orbital teratoma is a rare tumor composed of tissue derived from the three germinal layers, it usually occurs in otherwise healthy newborns as a fluctuating mass in orbit, with extreme proptosis and periorbital deformity. There are few reports in literature about this topic; we present a case report with severe stretching and deformity of periocular tissue,(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the results of our conservative management of retained trophoblastic tissue and placental polyp with diagnostic ambulatory hysteroscopy and to describe our experience and guidelines. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive retrospective study. Eighty-four women with suspected retained trophoblastic tissue after pregnancy underwent hysteroscopic(More)
