OBJECTIVE To examine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) and its associated risk factors in Mexican adults aged 20 years or older, using data derived from the National Health and Nutrition Survey 2006 (ENSANUT 2006). MATERIAL AND METHODS The ENSANUT 2006 was conducted between October 2005 and May 2006. Questionnaires were administered to 45 446(More)
Megaherbivores and small burrowing mammals commonly coexist and play important functional roles in grassland ecosystems worldwide. The interactive effects of these two functional groups of herbivores in shaping the structure and function of grassland ecosystems are poorly understood. In North America's central grasslands, domestic cattle (Bos taurus) have(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate clustering patterns of prevalent infection with multiple human papillomavirus (HPV) types in 3677 men from the HPV in Men (HIM) study. METHODS HPV testing was performed in samples combined from the glans penis/coronal sulcus, the shaft, and the scrotum by Linear Array methodology. Linear Array uses a mixed probe to assess HPV52(More)
In this paper, we present an optimized GPU implementation for the induced dimension reduction algorithm. We improve data locality, combine it with an efficient sparse matrix vector kernel, and investigate the potential of overlapping computation with communication as well as the possibility of concurrent kernel execution. A comprehensive performance(More)
In order to promote new human papillomavirus (HPV) prevention and detection methods effectively in Mexico, it is important to understand how much the population knows about the virus. This study aimed to determine the demographic and behavioural factors associated with HPV awareness and knowledge in a population of Mexican college students. With a response(More)
In this paper we present an optimized GPU co-design of the Induced Dimension Reduction (IDR) algorithm for solving linear systems. Starting from a baseline implementation based on the generic BLAS routines from the MAGMA software library, we apply optimizations that are based on kernel fusion and kernel overlap. Runtime experiments are used to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the prevalence and factors associated with sexual abuse in childhood and adolescence. METHODS Study conducted in a sample of students in the state of Morelos, Mexico, in 2004-2005. Participants (n=1730) were drawn from a cohort of 13,293 students aged 12 to 24 years. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire comprising parts of(More)
OBJECTIVES Genital HPV infection in men causes benign and cancerous lesions, the incidence of which differs by age. The goal of this work was to comprehensively evaluate incidence and clearance of individual HPV genotypes among men by age group. METHODS HIV-negative men ages 18-70 with no history of anogenital cancer were recruited for the HPV Infection(More)
T results presented in this issue of Salud Pública de México are without any doubt, a clear description of a daunting panorama for our country. The most important resource for us, our people, is suffering severe consequences in their health (during their prime and subsequently vulnerable years of their lives). Most likely, the scenario will only get worse(More)
