An open, controlled study was carried out in young patients with atopic dermatitis, who during one month received oral anti-psoriatic drug, anapsos (n = 46), or antihistamines (n = 30), simultaneously with topic applications. The activity and extension of the cutaneous lesions improved under both treatments, but more markedly with anapsos in spite of the(More)
It has been reported that the arrival of primary olfactory axons is required to induce the development of the olfactory bulb (OB). On the other hand, the Sey(Neu)/Sey(Neu) mutant mouse (Small eye) has been previously described as a model for the absence of olfactory bulbs, owing to the lack of olfactory epithelium (OE). In the present report, we take(More)
Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited form of familial mental retardation. It results from a (CGG) n trinucleotide expansion in the FMR1 gene leading to the typical Martin-Bell phenotype. Clinical features vary depending on age and sex. Expansion of a (CCG) n repeat in the FMR2 gene corresponds to the FRAXE fragile site which lies distal to FRAXA(More)
l-Arginine (l-arg) exhibits multiple biological properties and plays an important role in the regulation of different functions in pathological conditions. Many of these effects could be achieved on this amino acid serving as a substrate for the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). At the gastrointestinal level, recent reports revealed its protective(More)
BACKGROUND In the current literature, there is neither a reported systematic review comparing the efficacy of triptans at 30 minutes and 1 hour after the migraine treatment, nor data related to efficacy of new marketed triptans. OBJECTIVE The main objective of this analysis was to compare the efficacy and tolerability of currently marketed oral,(More)
PURPOSE We have studied a consecutive case series of patients with multiple primary melanoma (MPM) for the involvement of the melanoma susceptibility loci CDKN2A and CDK4. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred four MPM patients (81 patients with two primary melanomas, 14 with three, five with four, one with five, two with six, and one with seven) were(More)
In this study we present new data concerning the tangential migration from the medial and lateral ganglionic eminences (MGE and LGE) to the cerebral cortex during development. We have used Calbindin as a useful marker to follow the itinerary of tangential migratory cells during early developmental stages in wild-type and Pax-6 homozygous mutant mice. In the(More)
Experimental evidence has been presented connecting melatonin with the prevention or treatment of gastrointestinal disorders either by the scavenging properties of active oxygen or by receptor-mediated stimulation of gene expression of neutralizing enzymes. Prostaglandins and nitric oxide are important neuroimmunomodulators in digestive physiology and(More)
Fragile X syndrome is the most common form of hereditary mental retardation. The molecular basis of this syndrome is mainly a CGG expansion in the 5' untranslated region of the FMR1 gene. Expansions with more than 200 CGG repeats abolish gene expression causing the classical fragile X phenotype. Premutation carriers (55-200 CGG) have normal cognitive(More)
