Down syndrome (DS) results from the triplication of approximately 300 human chromosome 21 (Hsa21) genes and affects almost all body organs. Children with DS have defects in visual processing that may have a negative impact on their daily life and cognitive development. However, there is little known about the genes and pathogenesis underlying these defects.(More)
BACKGROUND Our purpose was to identify factors associated with hyperlipidemia post-transplantation in a Hispanic population. METHODS From 1985 to 1999, a kidney graft survival longer than 3 months occurred in 293 cases at the Instituto Nacional de la Nutrición. Most of the patients living in Mexico City were included (n = 83). The evaluation included a(More)
Variation in the calpain-10 gene (CAPN10) has been associated with risk of type 2 diabetes in the Mexican American population of Starr County, Texas. We typed five polymorphisms in the calpain-10 gene (SNP-43, -43, -63, and -110 and Indel-19) to test for association with type 2 diabetes in 248 individuals representative of the mestizo population of Mexico(More)
Microgrid design entails the selection and sizing of appropriate energy generation and storage technology to meet a known or proposed load profile. For traditional generation technology (i.e. thermal generating plants), it is well known that the incremental costs of meeting high peak demand is much higher than the average cost and hence negatively impacts(More)
Methods Fifty-eight paediatric-patients with moderate AD were enrolled and randomized in two groups: 1) Conventional treatment (CT) + DLE: Cetirizine (0.25mg/kg), once daily/4 weeks, Chlorpheniramine (0.35 mg/Kg), daily divided in 3 doses/4 weeks; and topical Methylprednisolone 0.1%, twice daily/10 days, then once daily/10 days, and ending every 48h/10(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertriglyceridemia in combination with low HDL cholesterol levels is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Our objective was to evaluate the efficacy of ciprofibrate for the treatment of this form of dyslipidemia and to identify factors associated with better treatment response. METHODS Multicenter, international, open-label study. Four(More)
