3% of human cancers are renal cell carcinomas (RCC). The most common chromosome abnormality found in this tumor is loss of heterozygosity (LOH) on the short arm of chromosome 3, which suggests that there must be one or more tumor suppressor genes between 3p14 and 3p21 near the VHL gene which play a relevant role in renal cancer development. DNA from normal(More)
BACKGROUND The combination of indinavir, a protease inhibitor, and reverse-transcriptase inhibitors is widely used in the treatment of HIV-1 infection. However, precipitation of indinavir crystals in the renal tubular lumen due to the drug's aqueous insolubility may result in characteristic symptoms of flank pain or classic renal colic. An in vitro study(More)
OBJECTIVES To check the degree of concordance in renal ultrasound examination between two nurses and one experienced urologist with the aim of testing nurses' competence performing renal ultrasound. METHODS The echographic aspect of both kidneys (normal or abnormal) was evaluated. Every abnormal finding resulted in the automatic classification of the(More)
This study was conducted to assess the in vitro activity of ertapenem against clinical bacterial isolates from patients with community-acquired intra-abdominal and lower tract respiratory infections in Spain in 2003. As the study was conducted before the marketing of ertapenem, it was also useful to define a baseline susceptibility pattern for ertapenem in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the methylation status of the tumor suppressor gene p16 in patients with renal carcinoma by analysis of microsatellite polymorphisms. METHODS 40 patients with sporadic renal cancer were studied. Tumor and normal tissue from each patient were tested for methylation status of the p16 gene by analysis of microsatellite polymorphisms.(More)
INTRODUCTION Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in adults. The annual incidence of CAP in adults in Spain ranges from 3 to 14 cases per 1,000 inhabitants. Current clinical guidelines primarily focus on the therapeutic approach to CAP rather than its prevention. The aim of this study is to develop and propose a(More)
OBJECTIVES To test patient's satisfaction after consultation in the outpatient area of the Urology Department in a public hospital using a structured interview. METHODS We used the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid (CAM) standard interview form modified to include three questions related to the implementation of a 'one-visit'policy and nurses' empowerment.(More)
