To investigate the androgen, weak androgen, estrogen, and gonadotrophin response to clomiphene in alcoholics, we determined in 63 male patients (25 with and 38 without liver cirrhosis) serum testosterone, sexual hormone binding protein (SHBG), dehidroepiandrosterone, androstenedione, LH, FSH, prolactin, and estradiol levels, on the first and the sixth day(More)
It is known that protein malnutrition conditions the development of liver steatosis, and may be accompanied by fibrosis. Ito cells intervene in the fibrogenesis, converting to transitional cells and myofibroblasts. Some trace elements, such as copper (Cu), iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn) act as co-factors, and zinc (Zn) acts as an inhibitor of a variety of(More)
A study of 72 alcoholics, hospitalized for alcohol withdrawal syndrome, was undertaken to determine the incidence of seizures, their relationship with other withdrawal symptoms, the presence of brain atrophy and the relationship of this last with withdrawal intensity severity. Sixty-seven (93%) were male and the mean age was 44.9 +/- 1.3 (mean +/- SEM)(More)
We present the results of a paleoparasitologic, paleogenetic and paleobotanic analysis of coprolites recovered during the excavation of the church La Concepción in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Coprolites (n = 4) were rehydrated and a multidisciplinary analysis was conducted. The paleobotanic analysis showed numerous silicates, seeds and fruits of the family(More)
Muscle morphological alterations derived from protein malnutrition are subjected to debate, specially regarding the alteration of the proportion of the different fibre types. The aim of the present study was to analyse the morphologic changes of the different muscle fibre types in experimental protein malnutrition. Twelve male Wistar rats were fed on a 6%(More)
We report the case of a woman with Caroli's syndrome (Caroli's disease and congenital hepatic fibrosis) and adult polycystic kidney disease. Whereas the association of these two entities with autosomal-recessive-polycystic kidney disease has been widely reported, its association with adult-polycystic kidney disease is very infrequent.
Thrombin activation and microthrombosis of intrahepatic portal venules is a common feature in liver cirrhosis, due in part to relative protein C deficiency and altered coagulation-anticoagulation-fibrinolysis balance. Extension of this microthrombotic process to larger portal vessels explains the increased incidence of portal vein thrombosis in liver(More)
