OBJECTIVE To assess asthma related knowledge among parents of asthmatic children at the moment of admission to a specialized service. METHODS This was a descriptive study. Parents of 93 asthmatic children (aged from 29-18 yr) were interviewed, at the moment of admission to the Pediatric Pulmonary Outpatient Service of a university hospital, using a(More)
This cohort study was conducted to evaluate the accuracy of parental and child's reports of changes in asthma symptoms. Fifty three asthmatic children and their parents were interviewed at enrollment and after 4 and 8 weeks. The outcomes were parental and child's reports of changes in asthma symptoms, changes in mean daily symptom scores and changes in(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess long and short-term effect of prednisolone in hospitalized infants with bronchiolitis. METHODOLOGY A randomized and controlled trial was carried out at the Federal University of Rio Grande, Rio Grande-RS, Brazil. Twenty-eight patients were randomly allocated prednisolone (1 mg/kg/day for 5 days) plus standard care, and 24 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE: To study trends in hospital admissions for acute pediatric asthma in the Hospital da Santa Casa do Rio Grande during the period of 1979 to 1996. METHODS: This is a study of a series of cases. We reviewed all the discharge records of pediatric patients with diagnosis of acute asthma, pneumonia, and bronchiolitis within the period mentioned above.(More)
While tissue KRAS2 mutations have been extensively investigated, the role of circulating mutant KRAS2 gene in patients with colorectal carcinoma remains obscure. The aim of the present study was to explore the prognostic significance of circulating KRAS2 gene mutational status in subjects undergoing primary treatment for colorectal cancer. Codon 12 KRAS2(More)
We report 15 cases of pregnancy in 11 patients with hyperprolactinemia. These patients initially went to our Gynecologic Endocrinology Center for various menstrual troubles. They were all treated with bromocriptine, except one whose hyperprolactinemia was diagnosed when she had already started a gonadotropin therapy, since HPRL assays performed elsewhere(More)
Point mutations of the K-RAS gene at codon 12 are found in about 40% of cases with colorectal cancer. The diagnostic implications of the detection of these mutations and their clinical utility are still unclear. The aim of this study was to test both the feasibility of the detection of the mutated K-RAS gene in serum and its potential role in colorectal(More)
The identification of markers predicting the response to therapy is of the utmost importance in oncology. Several authors have suggested that increased levels of glutathione (GSH) and glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity might be meaningful predictors of poor responsiveness to chemotherapy in several human cancers, but the biological assays have not(More)
