The aim of this study was to test the versatility of a new basal cell culture medium, GTSF-2. In addition to traditional growth-factors, GTSF-2 contains a blend of three sugars (glucose, galactose, and fructose) at their physiological levels. For these studies, we isolated normal endothelial cells from human, bovine, and rat large blood vessels and(More)
Autoimmune cytopaenia is a rare, but severe complication after solid organ transplantation. We retrospectively analysed 57 paediatric intestinal transplants performed in 49 patients between 1999 and 2009. Autoimmune cytopaenia was observed in six patients; it appeared after an average of 10 months post-transplant. Warm autoimmune haemolytic anaemia was(More)
OBJECTIVES A growing incidence of pediatric IBD (PIBD) in southern Europe has been recently reported. The SPIRIT registry (1996-2009) confirmed these tendencies in Spain. Our aim is to obtain data from 1985 to 1995 and describe the complete picture of PIBD presentation changes in Spain in the last 25years. METHODS A retrospective survey of incident PIBD(More)
BACKGROUND Although pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) diagnosis has increased in the last decades in Spain, there are no consistent epidemiologic data. Our aim was to describe the changing pattern of pediatric IBD incidence in Spain in the last 14 years. METHODS A retrospective survey of patients diagnosed below 18 years of age in the period(More)
This paper deals with the management of voltage constraints in active distribution systems that host a significant amount of distributed generation (DG) units. To this end we propose a centralized optimization approach which aims at minimizing the amount of MW curtailment of non-firm DG to remove voltage constraints. The salient feature of this approach is(More)
PTLDs are a well-recognized and potentially fatal complication after intestinal transplantation. We analyzed the incidence, clinical features, and outcome in a 63 intestinal transplantation series performed in our unit between October 1999 and July 2011. Types of graft included ISB (n = 23), LSB (n = 20), and MV (n = 20). Patients were categorized into(More)
PURPOSE Graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) is a rare complication of transplantation of organs rich in immunocompetent cells. The goal of this study was to report the features of GVHD after small bowel transplantation (SBTx) in children. METHODS The study involved a retrospective review of patients undergoing SBTx between 1999 and 2009 who had GVHD. RESULTS(More)
To review our experience with SRL as a second-line therapy in our series of 45 SBTx recipients (1997-2009). Retrospective review of five children converted to SRL: 3 M/2 F; median of three yr old (range 20 months-18 yr); rescue indications, adverse events with SRL, resolution of tacrolimus-related side effects, incidence of rejection, PTLD, or GVHD were(More)

Intestinal failure (IF) requires a multidisciplinary management based on nutritional support, surgical and medical rehabilitation, and transplantation. The aim of this study is to review our experience with surgical rehabilitation techniques (SRTs: enteroplasty, Bianchi, Serial Transverse Enteroplasty Procedure [STEP]) in patients with short bowel syndrome(More)
Pancreastatin is a regulatory peptide known to inhibit insulin secretion and insulin action with a glycogenolytic effect in the liver. This peptide is present in and secreted by many endocrine and chromaffin cells. Abnormalities of glucose, insulin and lipoprotein metabolism are common in patients with hypertension, as well as their first-degree relatives.(More)
