The accuracy of computer-assisted sperm morphometry analysis (CASMA) depends on the careful preparation, fixation and staining of spermatozoa. The efficiency of CASMA may be enhanced by developing optimized protocols. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of sperm washing and the use of three staining techniques [rapid Panoptic,(More)
A prospective study in treatment-resistant schizophrenic patients was performed over 10 years to evaluate the therapeutic response to clozapine and the variables related to this treatment. Eighty schizophrenic and schizoaffective patients (according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual [DSM]-IIIR criteria), considered as refractory (previously resistant to(More)
In the present study we investigated the prognostic value of Circulating Tumour Cells (CTC) and their utility for therapy monitoring in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A total of 43 patients newly diagnosed with NSCLC were prospectively enrolled. Blood samples were obtained before the 1st, 2nd and 5th cycles of chemotherapy and analyzed using CellSearch(More)
Both the study and the relationship between sperm design and sperm function have been a target of several researchers. In our study we have evaluated the relationship between the morphometry of sperm head and midpiece as well as the relationship between morphometry of these two spermatic components and sperm motion characteristics in the boar. Analysis of(More)
Knowledge on the molecular mechanisms underlying metastasis colonization in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) remains incomplete. A complete overview integrating driver mutations, primary tumour heterogeneity and overt metastasis lacks the dynamic contribution of disseminating metastatic cells due to the inaccessibility to the molecular profiling of(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to assess the incidence of mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients in the Galician region of Spain and the clinical management and outcome of patients carrying EGFR mutations. PATIENTS AND METHODS All newly diagnosed advanced or metastatic NSCLC patients were(More)
We carried out a retrospective analysis into the possible uses of thrombotic drugs on 190 consecutive patients with ischaemic stroke who had been admitted to the Neurological Service of the Barcelona 'Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau' in accordance with exclusion criteria commonly accepted for the use of this type of medication. We thus analyzed the(More)
