BACKGROUND Adolescence is a decisive period in human life due to the multiple physiological and psychological changes that take place. These changes will condition both nutritional requirements and eating/physical activity behavior. It has been demonstrated that these "adolescence" factors are of significant influence in health status during adult life. Due(More)
Sirenomelia is a severe congenital malformation of the lower body characterized by the fusion of the legs into a single lower limb. This striking external phenotype consistently associates severe visceral abnormalities, most commonly of the kidneys, intestine, and genitalia that generally make the condition lethal. Although the causes of sirenomelia remain(More)
Based on genetic variability, structural differences in the glycoprotein IIb/IIIa platelet receptor for adhesive proteins result in individual differences in the thrombogenicity of platelets. Recent studies suggest a controversial association between a genetic polymorphism of the glycoprotein IIIa gene (PlA2) and the risk of coronary artery disease. In our(More)
There is increasing evidence indicating that genes involved in certain metabolic processes of cardiovascular diseases may be of particular influence in people with low body weight at birth. We examined whether the apolipoprotein (APO) E, APOC3 and the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ-2 (PPARγ2) polymorphisms influence the association between low(More)
The severity of clinical features and the outcomes in previous series of patients reported with Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) vary greatly, probably due to selection bias. To establish the actual clinical spectrum of HSP in all age groups using an unselected and wide series of patients diagnosed at a single center, we performed a retrospective review of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Treating phenylketonuria based upon strict vegetarian diets has occasionally been found to hamper physical development, some patients presenting with growth retardation and malnutrition. In addition, some researchers have reported an association between higher protein intakes and attaining better developmental outcomes, although it remains(More)
Monocarboxylate Transporter 1 (MCT1) mediates the transport of the main fraction of lactate across the sarcolemma. A common polymorphic MCT1 variant has been identified, but its role in high intensity exercise performance has not been defined. We investigated the influence of MCT1 A1470T polymorphism (rs1049434) on lactate accumulation after high intensity(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the effect of the MCT1 T1470A polymorphism (rs1049434) on venous blood lactate levels in men and women, during three different circuit weight training protocols. DESIGN Cross-sectional laboratory study. METHODS 14 women and 15 men, all caucasian and moderately active, performed three circuit training sessions (Weight Machine(More)
Melatonin inhibits proliferation of the estrogen-responsive MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. The objective of this work was to assess whether melatonin not only regulates MCF-7 cell proliferation but also induces apoptosis. In this experiment we used 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (D3) as a positive control because it inhibits MCF-7 cell proliferation and(More)
Hyperlipidemia and insulin resistance frequently develop after renal transplantation, contributing to cardiovascular disease. Individual differences in response based upon genetic variations in proteins regulating lipidic and glucose tolerance metabolism could be expected. In the general population, the S2 allelic variant of the apoprotein (apo) C-III gene(More)
